• Are Siberian huskies immune to electricity?

    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?

    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 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?

    Hi , I have a few questions about dog care. In the upcoming days , I am expecting to get a new puppy . A rat terrier. I was wondering when left home alone and cannot be let outside to use the bathroom, if she can be trained to use a litter box ? My second question is if the leashes and collars which I see at the Dollar store , are of any quality? My third question is if I can use a somewhat large sized cat carrier to transport my new puppy around in ? Or must she have a carrier that is designed for dogs only ? Also I have a domestic cat . I would like instructions on how to introduce the cat to the new puppy.

    I have 4 dogs and one of them is so stupid I’m beginning to think she’s genuinely retarded. I’ve put time into training her, I’ve tried possitive reinforcement, negative reinforcement, spanking, yelling, treats, you name it and nothing works. I’ve tried trick training her and she learned sit after a week but that’s all she knows. She’s a 6 month old lab and everyone tells me that she’s just a puppy and will grow out of it but none of my other dogs were this bad as puppies. She gets her head stuck in everything, she doesn’t listen, she tries to swim in her water dish even though I tell her no and put her outside when she does. She’s always happy and excited which makes me feel bad for yelling at her all the time but she’s always so bad. This dog has brought me to tears just from frustrating me so bad. She’s very sweet she’s just stupid and doesn’t listen to anything. We thought maybe she might be deaf but the vet doesn’t think that’s the case. I don’t want to ask the vet if she’s retarded out of fear of sounding harsh and stupid but I just don’t know what it is at this point.

    I would really like to get a bush walking friend, and since most humans nowadays don t want to leave the house, I was thinking a dog would be great. The only problem is- I live in a house with 2 kids and a medium-small backyard. I don t want to be that person who locks their dog away in an obviously too small backyard being tortured by kids all day. Does anybody know of a fairly active dog breed that s good with smaller spaces and I guess good with kids, but that s more of a training thing. Thanks!

  • Does pedigree predict whether your dog is feisty or not? I ask because if my dog even sees another dog from a distance, she ll go nuts?

    Shes not a pedigree dog, and I love her even more for having a "personality" because those "behaved" dogs seem boring (like my sister s pittie, who is a sweetie, but is dull). The only regret is not being able to take her to per friendly cafes/restaurants.

    So my mom asked me to go out and bring in our dog who is barking. So I simply walk out there and notice that my dog is trying to run away from me. I end up catching her and picking her up, noting that she is wet. I asked my mom about this and she said that she sprayed the dog with a water hose. Our water hose has a strong pressure while our dog is just a small chihuahua who hates water. Our dog also has a limp which my mom said she is not sure how our dog got it (I noticed the limp when I got home from school). I’ve been begging my mom to take her to the vet but she refused. I’m really shocked and now seeing my mom differently as I never imagined her abusing our dog. I’ve also noticed my mom has been drinking a lot more and has been acting weird when she drinks. I’m really worried about our dog and our three other dogs since my mom is the main caretaker of them. Should I tell someone or talk to her about it?

I took multiple bites out of it and left it on my bed with the cover over it so no other dog could see it while I brought my other dog outside. One of dogs got out the bed across the room, went into my bed and ate the meat out my sandwich. I don't even know how she knew to even go into my bed looking for it. She left most of the bread but ate all the turkey. It won't hurt her, right?
