    Demands already?

    You came with the dog, she came later....so choose carefully...or get set for a life time of nonsense...

    I had two dogs when I met my girlfriend (wife for thirty years now), and she was not too keen on dogs;

    I was; NO compromise...

    The dogs were staying put

    The girlfriend understood that from the get go....and elected to stay....

    She loves her Doberman now, AND her husband....

    We live in apartment and we were both in the hallway. Then she opens her unit door and then her small dog came out of the hallway and started to attack me then bit near my left calf area. Luckily the bite wasn't hard and it only left scrapes with a few red spot on my calf. No bleeding occur. I went home and rinsed the area and applied hydrogen peroxide. What should I do next? Should I report this to someone? Tell my apartment manager? I don't know what to do because this is the first time getting bitten by a dog. The dog owner is really careless when it comes to pet control

  • Is it normal to not like Dogs??

    Best answer: Everybody who doesn't own a dog dislikes them or they'd have one, they're lying when they say they like them. Also, people who say they like dogs will hate your dog often and only like their dog. Some people like all dogs, a lot of them are actually mean people.

  • Is kennel cough contagious?

    I took my dog to the vet and they said she has kennel cough. They gave us medication for her, but they didn't mention if it was contagious. A friend asked me to take my dog on a walk with her's because they're buddies. We have a whole day planned out with our dogs and I was wondering if we should cancel.

  • Do female dogs get periods?

    Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but I've never had female dogs. I had a male dog for 16 years. He passed away a few months ago. Now my family is thinking about the possibility of getting another dog. But we were wondering do female dogs get periods the way us humans do?

  • My neighbor won't leave me alone about my dog alone. What do I do?

    So I adopted a two year old Beagle from my local rescue and planned on getting her spayed, but my vet recommended not because she had a bad reaction to the anesthesia when her previous owner tried to get her spayed.

    So I adopted a two year old Beagle from my local rescue and planned on getting her spayed, but my vet recommended not because she had a bad reaction to the anesthesia when her previous owner tried to get her spayed. Anyway, I mentioned ONCE that she was intact because of medical reasons and my neighbor keeps harassing me and reporting me as a back yard breeder. I have no other dogs and I keep her inside and supervised when she's in heat. My neighbor thinks I'm lying because she "caught" me walking my dog on a public trail while she was in heat. This is driving me up the wall.

  • My dog tries to attack my toddler and other kids even when they aren't doing anything to provoke the dog. How do I teach dog to stop this?

    I have a 2 year old that I often have to keep away from my dog becouse, as it seems, my dog tries to attack my toddler on sight.

Often when kids come over, my dog seems to HATE them and attack for what seems to be for no reason and straight out of the blue and I doubt they are provoking the dog. We aren't mean to the dog ourselves but I believe the dogs aggression is caused from traumatic experiences before I adopted the dog. The dog showed signs of abuse before we adopted it and took it home but I'm not sure what the dogs history was before adoption, just theories.

  • Service Dogs left behind.?

    Best answer: I can't believe you allowed not just one, but FOUR tenants to con you with all this 'service dog' scam.

    Yes of course a true service dog should be with their needy owner 24/7

  • My dog won’t stop licking his paws?

    My dog is a 7 year old golden retriever and obsessively licks his paws. He has been doing this since he was 3. He licks them until there is no fur left then keeps licking them until they bleed.

    My dog is a 7 year old golden retriever and obsessively licks his paws. He has been doing this since he was 3. He licks them until there is no fur left then keeps licking them until they bleed. We have to put a cone on him whenever he does this. We’ve been using the cone for FOUR YEARS because my dad refuses to take him to the vet to find out what the cause is. Also my dad punishes him whenever he does this by yelling at him and pushing him and being loud and aggressive which I’m sure makes my dog nervous. Then he blames it on the fact that he’s “just an anxious dog”. I have gotten into multiple fights with my dad about taking him to the vet until one day he finally went with me and did one test and said it was a waste of money and never went back. They don’t even take him for annual check ups or vet visits. How can I stop my dog from doing this? I don’t want him to get an infection and if he does already have one I don’t want it to get worse. He can’t use the cone for the rest of his life. And I don’t want him to be uncomfortable.

  • How do I get my cats and new dog to get along?! (SOS)?

    Best answer: You teach manners to the puppy. The pup must be taught the basics of obedience - sit, stay, leave it, quiet. And until that is done, the pup MUST be on leash around the cats. It must not be allowed to pounce, jump on, bark at, or chase the cats - not once, not even in play. Each attempt is met with a... show more
    Best answer: You teach manners to the puppy. The pup must be taught the basics of obedience - sit, stay, leave it, quiet. And until that is done, the pup MUST be on leash around the cats. It must not be allowed to pounce, jump on, bark at, or chase the cats - not once, not even in play. Each attempt is met with a reprimand from you, and put the pup in a sit. Do it over and over again. Get the cats a tall cat tree- four or more levels. They can get away from the pup. Fence of areas with baby gates, the cats can jump over but the pup cannot. Start today. No excuses, and until you work at training the pup, the cats will continue to live away from it.

    Im going to be a first time dog owner and I have a meet and greet with a 2 month foster puppy tomorrow. I was wondering what to look forward to. When I was talking to one of the volunteers at the shelter over the phone I didn’t think to ask what exactly goes on at a meet and greet. My adoption application was approved btw. So will I be taking the puppy home tomorrow? If so should I go out and buy food today or wait till I have the puppy? I was thinking that I should wait and get info of what type of food he eats before I buy some, Same with collars. Any help/advice for my first few days with the puppy? Are pee pads necessary or can I just bring him outside? What’s a better place to shop for him Petco or PetSmart? Should I even shop at those places? He’s a retriever breed (Type is unknown) Here’s a pic of him (Not sure if you can see) http://media.petango.com/sms/photos/2486...
