• GF hates my dog?

    So, I recently started dating this girl, and shes been over to my place a few times. I have a Newfoundland dog, and he’s big, over 200 lb, just big, gentle giant though, wants nothing more than to be petted, cuddled, scratched. Anyway, the big issue is, she’ll come over and Max will jump on her( which I... show more
    So, I recently started dating this girl, and shes been over to my place a few times. I have a Newfoundland dog, and he’s big, over 200 lb, just big, gentle giant though, wants nothing more than to be petted, cuddled, scratched. Anyway, the big issue is, she’ll come over and Max will jump on her( which I discourage) but if we’re on the couch together, he’ll rush over, put his head in her lap, try and lick her face, bring over his ball. She doesn’t like it, as he is rather forceful. On one hand, I see her view where it’s a big dog wanting all this attention, jumping on her, etc, but, on the other hand, he’s not attacking her, he just wants to play. I don’t know what to do here?

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

  • 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. This needs to be stopped because it's making it very difficult for people who DO have this kind of dog.

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

    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.

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.

  • 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.

    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...

    Shes 3 months old and likes to follow me everywhere which is fine. When I leave a room she usually follows right away and I close the door and all is well. But when me or my husband leave the bathroom and tell her to come so we can close the door, she just sits there. We call her by name or do dog whistles and everything but she sits there like she has no clue what we mean. We have to carry her out or I shut the door leaving her in darkness. I wait a few seconds the open and she runs out. I don't have time to be playing this game everytime I leave the bathroom. Why is she doing this? She is fine with any other room. And how can I get her to stop?

    I have a border collie / Australian cattle dog mix that is almost 2 years old. Up until a couple weeks ago, it would take her literally hours to get tired. Recently, it only takes about 30-40 minutes of running around at the park as opposed to the usual 1 hour - 1 hour 1/2. She's been sleeping a lot lately at home, too. Her appetite is great -- no changes there. Could this simply be because she's getting a little older? Or is she sick? I took her to the vet a little over a month ago and she had a clean bill of health. Thanks!

    I trained my dog on an invisible fence (no longer wears the collar, he knows where the boundary is), and one of the interesting things I have to deal with are cows. There is a cow pasture behind my house and the fence is right on the property line. And whenever my dog is outside, almost regardless of where they are, the cows will flock towards him and graze around him. He of course can't cross into the pasture, but they will follow him up and down the property line. Quick side note, my dog likes the cows as well ( idon't know how to describe it, he sits next to them, lays by them, and will occasionally lick their noses). Which I personally find odd as he's a husky. This has been going on for the last two years.

  • How do you put a dog to sleep?

    I tried googling this, but all I got are ways to decide if you should put your dog down. I want to put him to sleep so he doesn t bark at night... Not trying to kill him..
