• 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?

    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.

  • Need advice. Puppy is causing major stress. Stubborn. Doesnt listen. Hard to train. Runs out often etc?

    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?

    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?

    I was just reading a couple articles about using laser pointers as toys for dogs and how they're bad because it triggers their predatory nature and there's no payoff because they can never actually catch the light. Apparently dogs can become obsessed with it and go searching for the light even after the pointer is put away. I was surprised by this because as far as I can tell my dog LOVES his laser pointer. He absolutely understands where the light comes from, because if I so much as walk past where the pointer is hanging on the wall he often jumps up thinking it's time to play. If he's in another room he comes running out if he hears me take it off the wall and jumps up and down waiting for me to press the button. And then when I want us to be done playing, I put it away and he doesn't obsess over finding the light like the article says dogs can do because he knows it comes from the pointer and that the pointer is put away. I was just wondering if I should still be worried about using my pointer with my dog? He clearly loves it and as far as I can tell he doesn't get upset about not catching the light. Sometimes he doesn't even run all the way to it. He just likes chasing it. But the articles I read were pretty adamant about it. Could my dog be an exception? He's a corgi-chihuahua mix, if that makes a difference.

    That young of a puppy shouldn't have dental issues, but it's a possibility worth looking into if training doesn't seem to help.
