• Why don’t people train their dogs to stop approaching people?

    I had a Pomeranian come up and stick it’s tongue out. It just stood there for no reason. The owner saw nothing wrong. This isn’t the first time I seen this. I’ve had plenty of dogs come up to me and do the same. Mostly I ignore it, but if they follow me or sniff me then I tell them to go away, leave me alone. I... show more

  • My Rottweiler too friendly?

    Best answer: First of all, your Rottweiler might deter burglars simply by being there. Dogs are going to be a complication that robbers don't want to mess with, whether or not they might be friendly. It's also good that your dog is nice to people around you.

    Best answer: First of all, your Rottweiler might deter burglars simply by being there. Dogs are going to be a complication that robbers don't want to mess with, whether or not they might be friendly.

    It's also good that your dog is nice to people around you. Hard to say if he'd act differently if someone was trying to break in, but dogs tend to pay attention to their owners' reactions. If you're calm and relaxed around your friends, he gets the signal that these are okay people. He may well act differently if someone breaks into the house and threatens you. So not all hope is lost, but let's hope that you never have to run into that kind of situation.

  • Do you think I can adopt another dog even though my apartment has a two dog max without them noticing?

    I live in a townhouse with 3 other roommates in an apartment complex next to the university I attend.

I really want to adopt another dog that I have my eye on at the shelter, but when I called and asked they said they only allow two dogs max per unit and my other roommate is renewing next year like me so I'm not allowed. But how would they even notice? None of my other roommates mind another dog, all of the dogs are really laid back and don't cause any damage, and unless management comes in and counts the dogs I don't know how they would notice anything.

  • Why have I never had a dog be aggressive towards me? But they are towards other seemingly "nice" people?

    Why is it that dogs will freak out and want to kill certain people? Can dogs sense intentions? Or is it body language? are they picking up on fear? I once jumped a fence and encountered two German Shepards which should of ate my face off but they layed down and acted friendly. Meanwhile my golden retriever might... show more

    Hi everyone, I've been living with my boyfriend for 2 years, we already have one lovely Cocker Spaniel. But I have seen a Sighthound breed that I would really like. He is 2 years and is 27tts, I would be the main carer for the dog. He is lovely natured and also well behaved. I am meant to be picking him up tomorrow. Recently our Lurcher passed away who was only a puppy due to heart failure which has been heart breaking for me and my boyfriend. Lurchers are my favourite breed of dog. And I would like to get another, I have thought about this and I think it will ease the pain, but my boyfriend is the opposite, he said that he doesn't want another lurcher breed, and only have Cockers in the future.. Which is not what I want. I have sat him down about this and it's a NO every time I bring up possibly getting another Lurcher. But for some reason I feel like it's an excuse, because if I brought home a Spaniel he would accept it. I mentioned this dog to him and he got angry and said he wouldn't want to be a part of the dogs life, he says he loves me but he would have to move out if I brung another dog home. He said "What is wrong with what we have now?" My reply, "I would like to have a Lurcher, you already have the dog you like" him "You can't replace Penny" My reply, "I'm not trying to replace her, I just thought it would be a nice idea to get another dog for us both". Am I being horrible here? Please help!!

    I have a 48 LB 3 year old husky/pit mix and she has always looked slightly underweight to me and she has never ate a proper portion of food as she should daily. Some days she would refuse to eat all together. I took her to the vet a few days ago and every test they did for heartworm , parasites , etc. Came back negative. They also said she looked a healthy weight to them (maybe a pound or two underweight ) but now she has completely stopped eating any hard food I give. I tried changing to a higher end brand and still nothing. I bought her a cheap can of pedigree soft food and she eats it right up and I realized if I mixed a little hard food with it she would eat every last bit. What brand of soft canned food would you recommend for her ? And how much do you think I should feed her a day ? Thanks for any genuine answers. I just want my dog to eat proper no matter what it takes. 🤗

  • Why are men more likely to walk in the woods at night/early morning with their dog(s)?

    To do it is rather creepy in itself, but wouldn't you be creeped out while doing it? I see a lot of men do this.

    On December 2nd, 2017, I took my pup to the vet for her very first check-up. She got her rabies shot, a pill for fleas, and we were told that we had to come back on the 28th so she could get the 3 other shots she needed. We were told we paid for everything up in the first billing, which I paid in full. The bill looked like this: 12/2/2017 PUPPY/KITTEN EXAM - $53.00 DHPP VACC - $29.50 LEPTO 4WAY VACC FIRST - $30.00 LYME DISEASE VACC FIRST - $44.50 RABIES VACC - 1 YR - $25.50 BIOHAZARD MEDICAL WASTE FEE - $4.00 DRONTAL PLUS 45 LBS AND GREATER - $48.75 Total: $235.25 I have the 'receipt' that shows I paid the $235.25 in full, and my bank statement shows the transaction was processed on 12/04/2017. Now like I said, on the first day she ONLY got the one rabies vaccination. They had us come back on the 28th so she could be given the DHPP, the Lepto and the Lyme shot. Since everything was paid in full, we were allowed to just leave on that day. However, a bit ago we received a letter saying that we still owed them for the 3 shots she got on the 28th. On the most recent letter, it was hand-written that if they don't get a payment and turn it over to a debt collector, we won't be able to pay it unless we pay it in full. Now, they're charging us for the DHPP ($29.50), the Lepto ($30.00) and the Lyme ($44.50). The first letter about this 'remaining payment' said $104 was due (which would be the total of the 3 amounts added up). Am I missing something here about how vets do payments?

    So I’ve had a husky for 7 months and since we’ve gotten him he’s always destroyed everything. And he recently he had surgery because he ate something that caused bloackage which was something he destroyed. Before everyone would always say it was because he was pup but now he’s almost 8 months old he’s I. Training class but he’s still destroying everything!! His vet said to take him out because he’s probably bored so we started walking him 3 times a day and 1 and a half hour at the dog park. But guess what he’s still destroying things even if we leave it out of his reach he always finds something. We’re just scared he’s going to eat something agai. And need surgery again cause it moa something we can afford on a monthly basis he just had one last motn. Any tips?

    Best answer: Opinions like butt holes, just like preferences, everyone has one and is entitled their own opinion, nor should it matter to you what others may or may not have for a preference/and/or an opinion it's none of your concern, just your opinion and/or preferences shouldn't matter to any one else either.

  • Should I get my dog checked?

    My dog was caught with a little baby mouse in his mouth, but there was no blood, so he didn t really bite on it. He, apparently, just played with it and caught it. The mouse was also already dead. Should I be concerned? He also bit me after a while and I bled.

    Best answer: I think the Shar Pei is it's own type and it is more closely related to wolves than a lot of other dog breeds. Genetically they are most similar to Akitas and Chow Chows. Those are more related to Huskies and Malamutes than other Spitz breeds. The AKC puts the Shar Pei into the non-sporting group, which is a very diverse group.

    So if you want to put Shar Peis into a group I probably would call them basal asian dogs. Basal means that their DNA is less mixed and closer to wolves than other dogs and predates a lot of other dog breeds.
