• Why won’t my dog leave his poop alone?

    I try my best to pick it up as soon as possible, but sometimes he’s too quick for me. I am looking for suggestions on how to teach him not to do it or ways to prevent this besides picking up ASAP as that doesn’t always work.

    I try my best to pick it up as soon as possible, but sometimes he’s too quick for me. I am looking for suggestions on how to teach him not to do it or ways to prevent this besides picking up ASAP as that doesn’t always work. I’ve never ever screamed at him for pooping anywhere he’s always pooped outside anyway so I’m not sure why he started this nasty habit. Any advice is appreciated!

  • I'm getting very sick of cleaning poop and pee in my house because of these dogs I rescued. it is unreal and I feel they dont give a,****?

    they got a nice loving home and have issues from abuse. This is total bs. I might confine them to the laundry room, kitchen or our side but then they bark like crazy.

  • Would you really call my baby girl a killer?

    Would you really call my baby girl a killer?

    Best answer: I prefer to blame the deed, not 'the breed' so as long as you just remember that this type of dog can suddenly turn, all should be well. I don't condemn Pit Bulls out of hand. I DO their often stupid owners, along with BYBs who are producing overly aggressive Pit Bulls, because there is a market for... show more

I DO their often stupid owners, along with BYBs who are producing overly aggressive Pit Bulls, because there is a market for them amongst a certain type of owner.

    Pit Bulls were put on the banned breed list in the UK after a series of injuries/deaths from this type of dog. It was purely a knee-jerk reaction on the part of the Government. Again it's usually HUMAN ERROR that allows such tragedies to occur.

  • I can’t afford to reclaim my lost dog?

    I live in San Jose, CA. State law inquires that lost pets will be held for 6 days (excluding the day they were impounded). The shelter just closed, and now that makes 6 days. Is there a possibility that my dog will be put up for adoption? Because I don’t want to lose them. I’m probably the worst pet owner to... show more
    I live in San Jose, CA. State law inquires that lost pets will be held for 6 days (excluding the day they were impounded). The shelter just closed, and now that makes 6 days. Is there a possibility that my dog will be put up for adoption? Because I don’t want to lose them. I’m probably the worst pet owner to exist. I bought my dog some treats and a new toy on the same day they ran away. I gave him the treats... But he never got the toy. Sorry, I’m rambling. If my dog is put up for adoption... Is it more expensive or do I have a chance to get him back? I’m going to have more nightmares tonight. I’m very depressed. Now I’m diagnosed with insomnia and my eating has worsened. I’ll probably just try begging hard enough tomorrow when I go to the shelter... In hopes that I get my dog back. tl:dr the state time limit to get my dog has passed, what can I do?

    Best answer: If you had taken her to training what did they say about her lack of response?
    Just a thought, I had a Cavalier who was deaf, have you had her ears checked?

  • Are laser pointers bad for dogs psychologically?

    Best answer: Just like some people can drink alcohol and never become a drunk and others can have one taste and not be able to stop drinking, every dog is more or less susceptible to obsessions and addictions.

    Best answer: Just like some people can drink alcohol and never become a drunk and others can have one taste and not be able to stop drinking, every dog is more or less susceptible to obsessions and addictions.

    It helps I think that your dog knows the laser pointer is the source of the light. I think a lot of dogs that become obsessed think it’s some sort of unattainable bug and they become obsessed with trying to catch it.

    Your dog isn’t in danger if he’s not to concerned with catching it and just enjoys the chase. I use laser pointers for training as well as for fun. I trained my chihuahua to run up and down the hallway on command as a way of wearing him out when it’s rainy (he won’t go out in the rain). I did this with a laser pointer. I just connected the act of chasing it with a command and treats as a reward and before long I didn’t even need the light to get him running. During this process I was very clear he is to do this on command only lol.

    I don’t see any danger if you use them right.

    Sorry about the dumb title, but I can't think of any other way to word it.

    Sorry about the dumb title, but I can't think of any other way to word it. My neighbor's husky pays me frequent "visits" and noses around my chicken coop/run, like most stray and loose dogs that pass by do. But that's where the similarities end. I run two strands of hotwire around the run, one at "nose" level and one at the top in case something climbs up. I see the dog get shocked and she flinches, but then keeps going, like she's looking for a weak spot to break in. I've seen the wires repel everything from raccoons to other dogs of differing breeds and mixes, but this husky does not give up. It really stresses the birds out, and I have lost the majority of my first flock to a loose dog that did find a weak spot on the fencing (a note to anyone thinking about getting chickens, chicken wire keeps chickens in but not determined predators out). Anyways, I spoke to the owner the second time the dog appeared, and they told me huskies are difficult to contain and even jd a video of her scaling their chain fence. Does anyone have any recommendations for keeping the dog away?
