A stubborn Golden Retriever has gone viral after demanding a comfortable seat and refusing to budge.
In a viral video posted by ozzybeargolden on TikTok, the pup can be seen lying comfortably on an armchair belonging to the user’s mom.
Oscar, the dog, doesn’t even flinch because he has asked to move and it becomes clear that he has decided to stay.
The video has been viewed over 420,000 times and liked by over 25,000 people.
According to the American Kennel Club, Golden Retrievers are “loving” as opposed to independent. They are well known for showing affection to their family members and treating everyone as their best friend.
The original poster added text to the video that reads, “When your retired nurse mom meets her match with a petulant kid.”
In the comments, the six-month-old pup was described as “precious” by his owner. The video was taken during a visit to the home of the original poster’s mother in Lincolnshire, UK
The mom in the video asks Oscar to get up from his seat but he doesn’t flinch.
Newsweek published several articles about spoiled dogs, including one refusing to get off its owner’s bed, a dog demanding to be put to bed, and two Goldendoodles having their food cut off.
Bark Busters, a home dog training company that offers personalized dog obedience and behavior training, has advised owners to make sure they know the difference between ‘loving and spoiling’ their foursome friends paws.
The trainers said: “Dogs actually crave rules and routing. They need boundaries. A dog without boundaries can become aggressive, demanding or very owning things, including its owner. It gets out of control until that the owners don’t want the dog anymore and the dog is sent to a shelter.You don’t want to reward behaviors that you will later regret.
“Conversely, loving your dog means developing a healthy relationship between the two of you based on respect and trust. It means you are the pack leader and determine when the dog should be rewarded for good behavior.”
The viral post received many comments, most of which say what they think Oscar thinks.
A TikToker added: “He likes her talking to me.”
Another commented: “You repeat, you lose ma’am.”
One user wrote, “How dare you grandma this is my chair 🥰😂.”
