My pet dog just suffered miscarriage today... Seeing he cry and bleed I feel helpless
My 2year old pit hound mix has separation anxiety. When myself or my husband leaves him he acts a fool. How can I break him of this so he can stay home alone sometimes?
Crate for Strong Pit Terrier
The main goal of this post is to find a crate that a dog can't break out of or chew her way out of order but her head and break the gate out. Here's my story . I just rescued a 55 pound female terrier pit mix she is so sweet and lovable she follows us around the house from room to room everywhere you go you only place you can go to the bathroom but she said it's outside the door you can't leave her because she whines and yelps when being left alone i think probably from having her puppies taken from her or from being abandoned . We are going to invest in some obedience training but my question is she's gone through two crates into weeks she can break out of both of them and broke the other she doesn't like being in there because she doesn't like being left alone but when we are home she loves to go in there and lay and take her toys so what kind of crate trained
crossbred anatolian with pyrenees
Does anyone have experience with dogs that are half pyrenees and half anatolian shepherd? if so can you elaborate on positives or negatives. I am considering getting a puppy as a pet. i have had a male pyrenees and he was a wonderful dog.
Need cat selection help
Hi, I am a little confused about what breed of cat to get because originally I was thinking a Burmese but read that it is better to have 2 as they require a lot of attention.
This will be our first indoor cat, our 11yr old dog recently passed away :-(
So if anyone can help with breed selection, that would be great!
Here is some info:
* I have two young boys, school age (5yr and 7yr)
* The cat would be on its own only 3 days a week (approx 8.30am - 3.30pm), I only work 3 days a week. Obviously on the weekends we might go out on Sundays...etc and on my days off I might duck out to the shops...
* It would be an only cat, we really don't want a second cat.
* I would love the cat to be playful, but also love to snuggle on our laps.
* I really don't like the idea of having a lot of hair around on the furniture or clothing, so would prefer a low shedding cat. Am I right in saying that even domestic cats shed quite a bit in comparison to some other breeds?
I really want to choose the right breed, your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
hey everybody,my wife and i have a 16 week old boston terrier puppy named rico. we love him with all our hearts, but he's a real handful at times. he's very smart, and tends to act like he can't hear us when he's doing something shady. he chews a lot of stuff up, including the "replacement" bed we just got him, and had to toss out. he playfully nips people, sometimes pretty firmly, causing pain. we walk him a lot, and even have him walked 2x daily while we're at work. but he still acts out. lately he's really been testing my nerves. i try to be a good caretaker, and when i come home from work, i always sit down with him first for at least 20 minutes. i know a lot of this stuff is just puppy behavior, and puppies are like babies. when he gets me angry, i try to keep calm, knowing that punishing a dog can confuse them. i know it makes dogs act even more stubborn. someone told me that getting rico clipped will calm him down a little bit.he does try to establish dominance with me, which is rather comical at times. i've held him down several times, pinning him down for 3-5 minutes at a time, which has changed his perspective. someone told me that even allowing a dog into your home first gives him the impression that they have the reigns. not sure how acurate that is. i really love this dog, and i hope we have him for a long time. i'm def. willing to do what's necessary to improve our relationship. ANY BOSTON TERRIER OWNERS WHO COULD THROW SOME ADVICE MY WAY? ANY TWO CENTS WOULD BE APPRECIATED.BILLYJACK
Puppy Yawns and Yelps/Vocal/Whine
I have a 6.5 month old puppy. I got her at 2 months. When I first got her I noticed she would occasionally Yawn and Whine/Yelp when she was tired and we were walking.Now at 6.5 months she seems to do this Yawn/Whine/Yelp more often. I take her to run each morning for 30 minutes then we go on her 15 minute slow walk in the neighborhood. A few hours later the Yawn comes in, with the Whine sound. She seems to be fine, no limping, loves to eat her meals, and play. Could she just be a vocal dog, or bored, Just trying to understand. Thanks
whats everyone's favorite type of breed?house with kidsmoderate activities new to owning a dogthanks!
my yorkie pup is 5mos and is full of playfulness. we do walk and play. he barks, jumps on me, biting....nipping at my heels, pulling at my pant legs. my house looks like a 2yr old lives here. he has a lot of toys and plays with all of them. He will not come to when he is commanded he is a very needy pup. he is coming close to the age to be fixed...will this help in his behavior? I am thinking about a trainer, what is you opinion? I am open to suggestions.
Find your perfect match based on activity level, size, intelligence and more!
