    Best answer: hey, all i can relate to is that ive had a couple of german shepherd litters last year and this year and i honestly looked like someone who self harmed the amount of scratches i got on my arms, i have a three yr old and nine month german shepherds and i constantly have injuries, not long ago i got a spilt lip like id been punched when the young one gave me an upper cut head but out on a walk blood everywhere. so unfortunately big dogs give us mere light weight humans even us adults injuries, not from a mean sense just because they are dogs. so as for your child you can do your best to keep watch it doesnt sound like hes too bothered at this time but your dog is going to be big so you need to use words and calm behaviour such as gentle and careful...you have a long way to go like me a good couple of years before they calm down you will need to be always present with your child when with the dog especially as they are growing at a vast vate...xx

  • All pitbul owners are stupid and their dog need to turn on them instead of other innocent civilians.?

    Best answer: Theyre probably not stupid, just misguided, poor at making judgements, ignorant and uneducated. The ones that are definitely stupid are the owners that have children and then decide it would be a good idea to bring a fighting dog into the family home.

  • Do you allow your cat to move freely through your home?

    Mine does, he just goes where he wants, he's taken to sleeping in the kitchen lately, he likes to curl up on the drainboard, he's a weird cat, but it's cute. He's bascially allowed everywhere in my house apart from going outside, of course. He's free to jump up on the sofa and the bed, chairs,... show more
    Mine does, he just goes where he wants, he's taken to sleeping in the kitchen lately, he likes to curl up on the drainboard, he's a weird cat, but it's cute. He's bascially allowed everywhere in my house apart from going outside, of course. He's free to jump up on the sofa and the bed, chairs, anywhere he can get to, even the worktop. But I know some people are stupidly restrictive when it comes to where a cat can go. I own my cat, I am his caretaker, we have a pretty sweet deal, I give him food and medical attention and he gives me a friend. (I'm not social, I don't have many human friends, I have like one human friend, the rest are animals, I keep rescue chickens)

  • How much to charge to cat sit?

    Someone is asking me to come take care of their cat once a day while they are gone. They are only five minutes away. I would feed them, change the litter and give pets and cuddles. Thank you :)

  • Do you like big dogs or small dogs?

    Best answer: I like both. But, I do find bigger dogs more enjoyable because you have more to cuddle and they make you feel more safe and they are big babies. I do have a small dog though, she’s a dashund and she has my heart.

  • Male dog now really dislikes his puppies, but why?

    Best answer: He doesn't even know that he's the Sire/Father to those pups. He bred a b*tch in heat out of instinct. He was a sperm donor. End of story. You better be really careful with this.

    Best answer: He doesn't even know that he's the Sire/Father to those pups. He bred a b*tch in heat out of instinct. He was a sperm donor. End of story. You better be really careful with this. Depend on the pup's age, the Dam/Mother will be very protective and could even try to kill the Sire if he gets near them. Also, not all dogs get along with young pups either, so he could actually hurt them too, or even worse.

    I've always loved dogs and now I'm finally at a place where I can have one again. But these are the circumstances: -live alone in one bedroom apartment -dog will need to be home alone during day, several days a week -I'm very active outdoors in spring and summer, including 6 to 10 hour day hikes -I hate cold weather and need a dog that is okay with two short walks per day during cold months. So, obviously, I need a dog that is okay to be alone sometimes in a small apartment, that can do a full day hike with me, but will also be okay with limited activities in winter. Is there such a dog breed?

    I have 2 dogs, we love in a rural area, my mom works from home and they get usually 3-4 LONG walks a day. They sleep on our beds, go everywhere with us, etc. I went to shelter weeks ago and fell in love with a dog there. He is a Boxer/Lab mix and is adorable. He was surrendered to the shelter with behavior problems—chases cats, chases kids on bikes & is not trained at all. I fell in love with this dog and begged my parents for him. We visit him a lot&know him. This dog is SO trainable. Smart breed, smart dog, he just needs a loving owner to help him. My parents say no because 3 dogs is too much responsibility and we have cats. I have come up w solutions for all of the possible issues—I will walk him when free(not at school)and I’ve said I will train him not to chase the cats. I’ve learned how to do that and feel I can help this dog and make his life better. He’s a big dog locked in this small kennel who gets barely any exercise, who has gotten adopted and returned to the shelter THREE TIMES just because he’s not trained He’s the kind of dog that will bounce around a lot because he has zero training I want to help him and be his forever home. I really feel deeply this dog is meant to be with me&that I can help this dog w training. I have tried everything and am serious about this dog&have visited him many times I’m so attached to him&willing to bend over backwards, adjust my lifestyle to train and devote time to him. What else can I say to convince my parents? Thank you :)

    I have a puppy that’s about a year old and I’m at my wit’s end. He poops soooo much. He’s alright about holding his business during the day, but we go outside about every hour to hour and a half, where he poos every time, and then every night he poos in his kennel and I have to clean it and him in the morning. The vet said he was fine and it would get better with age, however my other dog never had this problem at this age. My dog is eating a very high quality food, and other than being frequent, what comes out of him is normal. I’m getting tired of constantly cleaning up after this dog and being chained to my house, so any advice would be appreciated.

    My dog is a lab/retriever, 3 months old, 23 lbs. She likes to play and everything but a little too rough. Yes, I do know roughing playing with puppies is normal but it shouldn’t normal if she bites hard on my arm and doesn’t let go. I was playing with her normally with her toys until she decided to just latch her jaw onto my hand and not let go. At first, I thought she was just playing and held still but... her jaws gripped my arm tighter and tighter until I immediately yelled in pain. She didn’t stop though until my mom and brother came to pull her from me. I got up and realized she bit to where I started bleeding. I was confused at this because I’m pretty much the only one taking care of her and giving her treats and all. She’s never bit me this hard ever since we got her two days ago. Any suggestions? Right now, she’s in her kennel lying down. Thanks.
