She Accused a Deaf Woman of Mistreating Her Dog When She Trained it to Answer the Door

Recently, a woman asked her friend to leave her home after the friend accused her of being unkind to her dog. The woman has shared her side of the story.

This young woman, who is deaf, recently moved into a new house with her golden retriever Nala. 

“Nala is the sweetest,” she said.

She struggled with the doorbell

When the woman moved into her new home, she had some trouble getting flashing light doorbells put in, and it took a while before she got it sorted.

She needed the assistance

“My friends and family know to give me a call when they drop by instead of ringing the doorbell, but unfortunately, I have missed many a package this way,” she said.

Her dog Nala, clever as she is, caught on to this.

“At one point, she began letting me know when someone was at the door,” the woman said.

Nala would let her know by paw at the door if the woman was in the living room, or she’d come and headbutt her gently if she was upstairs. Basically, Nala had learned how to notify the woman if someone was at the door.

“It took me a while to catch on to what she was trying to do, though. And now, even though I have my doorbell installed, she still does it. I did not teach her how to do any of this. She just decided to help me out, lol,” the woman said.

The woman had a visitor

Recently, one of her friends visited for the first time. This was also her first time meeting Nala.

“The first thing she comments on is how I named her Nala because apparently everyone and their grandma names their golden Nala. Lion King was my favorite movie growing up, sue me,” the woman said.

She showed her Nala’s trick

Then she showed her friend a video of Nala pawing at the door because she thought it was cute, and usually, people think it’s funny. 

The woman then showed her another video of Nala doing the same thing.

She said the woman was mistreating her dog

“She asked me why Nala was doing that, and I explained,” the woman said.

Her friend then exclaimed, “So, she’s basically your servant? Is she just here to get the door?”

The woman got angry

The woman was shocked and hurt by her friend’s comment and immediately asked her to leave.

Her friend thought she was rude

The friend left but messaged the woman afterward, calling her rude for kicking her out of the house. She had traveled a long way to see her, but the woman would not tolerate anyone saying she didn’t treat her dog right.

The woman asked if she was wrong for reacting so strongly

So the woman reached out to the Reddit community and asked if she was being over-sensitive or if she was, in fact, right for asking her friend to leave.

People responded

 “NTA. Maybe you should get Nala to show your friend the door,” one user said.

“NTA. Nala sounds like a wonderful dog (so smart!), and you sound like an excellent dog parent. Clearly, your friend doesn’t know anything about dogs, particularly golden retrievers, who thrive on having “jobs” to do. Good for you for asking your friend to leave after her rude and judgmental comments.”
