Why is my dog dumb?

Hi, my 2 year old dog has never really learned a thing, always just does what she wants. She has a collar and will be taken away if she gets out. But, she's stupid. I can take a little while away and she'll walk up to the wall in the house and just start chewing it, or she'll just go around the house and walk backwards. When I yell at her or tell her to get down from something she just looks around. I can't leave her alone with anything either. She's not going to do what I tell her to do, and she doesn't listen or learn. She's always a puppy, and when she doesn't know what to do she doesn't ask me or her parents to teach her. How do I fix this?

If your dog is just stupid (I mean, not stupid in a bad sense, just stupid in the sense that they have no sense of anything) I wouldn't be worried, but if she doesn't know what to do, then she might have been traumatized during puppy hood, when you weren't able to teach her, and that makes things very hard to change.

Try to teach her that she can't chew on the wall and if she does do it right away. If she's very young, give her a treat, and take her away for a while. That's basically what I did. My puppy was very destructive, and I used that to my advantage. I'd sit in the living room and ignore her while she chewed and then went away for a while. I'd sit there and talk to my friends on the phone. When she came back, she'd be very busy eating and I'd give her treats. Pretty soon, I was giving her two treats for every two chews. Eventually she got the idea.

But yeah, you could definitely get rid of her. She's not learning or anything. It's like she doesn't even really want to learn.

My first problem is that she's old. I have a 3 1/2 year old dog and a 10 month old puppy.

I know they aren't puppies anymore but what can I do? I have a friend who got the same problem with his dog and he got rid of him.

I don't want to get rid of her because I like her and her and her brother are very smart, but I can't control her and I don't want her to get in trouble.

I'm at a loss. Please help.

If she's older than about two or three I'd be worried about the possibility of a physical disease. A lot of the "old" symptoms of such diseases are "off leash" behavior (excessive barking/biting/pulling, and more than a bit of nipping and lunging/biting on the other hand, as well as the general lack of focus/cognitive ability), or if the condition is neurological, you may find that you're more likely to catch her chewing on something and/or running backwards instead of just chewing the corner of a box.

She's 10 months old now, so she's already starting to show the first signs of slowing down, but the most logical thing to do is to take her to the vet for a full exam.

When you get to the vet make sure that you have the entire history and have pictures and videos taken and save them. There are also a lot of great resources online that will be able to help you diagnose the problem if it turns out to be anything more than a couple of nips and a bit of chewing here and there.
