    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....

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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • I made a doggy mistake..?

    I have a 2 year old beagle named Jimin. He’s aggressive to dogs/people he doesn’t know, but we’re training him out of it with treats. He is the sweetest thing to his family.

    I have a 2 year old beagle named Jimin. He’s aggressive to dogs/people he doesn’t know, but we’re training him out of it with treats. He is the sweetest thing to his family. I also have a dog named Peanut. He is very old and is going deaf, blind, and he’s on medication for a heart murmur. When I was feeding Jimin, Peanut smelled the food and went over to him. All of a sudden, Jimin lunged at him and growled, almost biting Peanut. Mind you, Peanut is a small chihuahua who wouldn’t hurt a fly. I got scared and pulled Jimin away and smacked him on the snout 2 times while shouting “Bad dog!” . It wasn’t hard, but it was enough to startle him. I instantly felt bad and before I could comfort him, he ran to the couch. I didn’t mean to hit him, I was just in fear for my other dog. But now, Jimin gives me sad eyes and doesn’t even want to be near me. I pet him and kissed him and tried apologizing via doggy language, but he just won’t come near me. Normally, he sleeps with me in my bed. As soon as I picked him up to lay down with me, he jumped out of my bed and into the living room. I feel so bad, and now I don’t know what to do. He won’t even lay down with me, and I can’t sleep without him or I get nightmares. I don’t need to be scolded, I know what I did was wrong and I am paying the price.

  • 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. 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?

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.

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

    She is a German Shepherd not neutered and she turned 8 a month ago. It pains me to write this and please no rude replies money is tight in my family and I’m only 16 and after months I finally convinced my mom to take her to the vet next week. She has a lump on her stomach. She has stopped eating these last couple weeks and has barely ate. She is constantly thirsty and she pees and poops in the house everyday now. She broke away from us and jumped in the pool we just opened and it is green. She was in there for about 2 minutes because I couldn’t get her out just chugging the green algae water down and she threw up a few times. She now has been shaking for 2 hours and her teeth are chattering and she just seems out of it. These past couple weeks she hasn’t seemed herself either. I’m not sure if she has quality of life anymore and it makes me sad to think about it but should we put her down? She is also locked in the kitchen because she keeps pooping and peeing. She has had a couple seizures this year. Is she living quality life? Should she be put down?

  • 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.

    I live in the UK so I'd like something I can get here. I have an elderly dog who is becoming quite unsteady on her back legs, she drags behind on walks and constantly wants to lay down after only 10 minutes of walking. I wanted to get her some good quality pain relief but wanted some word of mouth advice on what would be good. My vet said try supplements first as the pain killers would be prescribe could affect her liver/kidneys. She did suggest some stuff but I can't remember them. My dog was given a weeks worth of pain killers for an injury and she was a lot more energetic. Any suggestions?
