Receptionist: Hello, how can I help you?
Owner: Hi there, this is Slinky’s owner. I have a question.
Receptionist: Oh, hi! Didn’t we just start her on medication for seizures? How is she?
Owner: Oh, that’s going great. No seizures at all.
Receptionist: Wonderful! So how can we help you?
Owner: I wanted to know if you think shock collar training would be ok for her.

Tech: Hi there- were you asking if we recommended shock collar training for your epileptic dog?
Owner: Yes, is that a bad idea?
Tech: What trainer are you using?
Owner: Oh, I don’t use a trainer. I just do it myself.
Tech: Don’t put a shock collar on your dog. Do you need some recommendations for some good local trainers?
Owner: Nah. I have it under control. *click*
If he thought to ask, at least some part of him must have sensed this wasn’t the best idea. I’m trying to give him the benefit of the doubt.
