Dog Goes Full-On Limp Noodle To Protest Leaving Park

When a dog owner decided it was time to leave the park, his dog just flat-out refused.

Every dog’s favorite place in the world is the park. They can run, play, roll around the grass and pee on EVERYTHING.

So when it’s time to leave the park and go back home, it’s no surprise that occasionally dogs will just refuse. In a video uploaded to YouTube by whipandco in March of 2013 (but is still making the Internet giggle), a Golden Retriever protests leaving the park by pulling the old limp noodle routine.

“I know how heavy I am. You will not be able to carry me to the car… so let’s just stay right here.” Via whipandco/YouTube

His owner tries just about everything to get this lazy pup back up on all fours, but the dog doesn’t make it easy on him.

He tugs on the dog’s leash, rolls him over and he even rubs his belly at one point to see if playing nice will do the trick.

And what finally works is beyond strange. The owner puts a stick in his mouth and walks backwards, away from the dog. The dog sees this as some sort of game, and immediately aborts his personal mission to lounge at the park until nightfall.

So what’s the lesson here? Sometimes a stick in the mouth is all it takes? According to this dog, it is.

  • I’ve had shelter dogs do this when their walk turns back to the shelter – they lay on their side and refuse to get up. It’s not lazy, it’s that they don’t want to go back in.

  • Very cute, but shouldn’t be using those flexi leads as they are dangerous to humans and dogs. I love Goldens.

  • Not cute…disturbing to see a person handling their dog this way.

    • Whoever thinks that this man harmed his dog is ignorant & obviously has not experienced a dog companion. Any Vet would view & see NO Problem …..Do your research before making comments PLEASE. I feel this gentleman handled his dog’s defiance perfectly.

  • Really ?!?!?! Does no one object to the owner pulling the dog by his legs? The dog could be injured by this action. Yes the dog’s behavior is cute but the owner’s action in response is inappropriate.

    • He didn’t appear to be pulling that hard or jerking the dogs legs. the dog seemed just fine and the owner appeared to be a loving caring owner. Had he dragged the dog by it’s legs that would have been a different story.

  • Looks like a trained behavior to me with the final cue being the stick in the mouth.

  • I’ve had 4 of the best Golden’s in the past 35 years and still miss all of them. I love my pit bull, but she’s no goldy.
