Dog owners should pick up dog poop according to reddit user sankalp89 Uttar Pradesh
Scoop law: Don’t even get me started on this one. In the western world, dog owners carry a plastic bag and pick up after their dogs. They don’t leave it for the sanitation worker to pick it up the next day. In India I don’t expect pet owners to pick up after their dogs EVER, because you know, cultural reasons. So we just leave it there on the side of the streets and complain about the sanitation worker for not picking it up on time.

As an Indian dog owner who lives in a country which is only now coming to terms with increasing dog ownership, I can confirm that Indians are the worst dog owners – they buy “status” dogs like huskies that they don’t know how to care for or train, foist the responsibility of walking and exercising the dog on the house help, and NEVER pick up their dog’s poop. The number of disgusted sideways glances I get from other dog owners when picking up my dog’s poop is really the most infuriating thing. The country I live in has extremely harsh penalties for littering/making a mess in public, and I’ll shed not a single tear for any one of those guys who picks up a hefty fine for exactly this!
Indian dog owners are extremely irresponsible according to reddit user sankalp89 Uttar Pradesh
Some Indian pet owners are highly irresponsible and entitled assholes. Not all, but some for sure. No offenses to the good ones.
I live in a western country and here you would hardly hear a dog bark (or a kid screaming and crying at the top of his/her voice in the public for that matter). Even if you come across a dog in the lift/elevator who starts barking, the owner takes it on them to calm the dog down because it’s not other persons fault that the dog is barking on them. However, in India some dog owners don’t ever calm the dog down when it’s barking unnecessarily. As a matter of fact, they want the dog to bark since they think it’ll keep the burglars away.
Some of these entitled assholes wouldn’t even flinch if their dog is barking or trying to bite a person who’s of the lower social status than them.
Keeping a pet dog is very expensive, yet in many small towns dogs are usually kept for home security,
In apartments, few people are keeping pet dogs since CCTVs are installed and security agencies hired
Some apartments have restrictions on keeping pet dogs, in other cases, dog owners do not have free time to take proper care of the pet dog.
Taking the dog up and down in a lift is also risky, since the dog may bite others in the lift .
