Tell us: What bad behavior did you accidentally teach your pet?

I'm the Community Editor at SheKnows. My perfect day would be camped in the middle of nowhere, reading an excellent book and writing something true.

Share the trick your pet learned that you really wish they hadn't

We love our pets, but sometimes their bad behavior is just so cute — or surprising — that we forget to curb it.

We want to know: What bad behavior have you taught your pet — accidentally or not?

For example, maybe you accidentally gave your dog a begging habit because early on you wanted him to delight in your delicious cooking, too.


Perhaps you loved your dog's howls because it felt like they were talking directly to your soul - until they started doing it for 20 minutes whenever someone new walked in the door.


Or maybe you somehow taught your cat that your head was the best place to spend their day and now no messy bun is safe.


Whatever the bad habit is, share it with us in the comments below and we may feature it in a SheKnows post!
