Please don’t make fun of the dead patches of grass that’s from spraying his poop spots with bleach
Not yet. Vet said 2 weeks of recovery before he can be around other dogs (as he could still be contagious) so we are playing it safe. We’re on day 10 of being home
forgot he had a setback, enjoy they are so fun.
We’ve had him a few weeks and I can’t understand how I didn’t have a dog before. They really are the best
just wait, they become family
Wait.... Is this a normal thing?
I wasn't sure if he's serious since this is his first dog.
His pup had parvo so I'd imagine that's a safety precaution
That’s a cute dog you have there
Thank you luckily he got his moms looks lol
I smoke camels when my one friend comes over. Neither of us are smokers but like to drink and have a few
They’re still contagious for a few weeks and the virus can live in the soil for up to year. So if I didn’t and another dog came over it could be at risk if we didn’t
Cinder goes to her maybe-forever home tomorrow. They have a dog that they brought to our meet up and they mostly ignored each other, so their going to do a trial run before officially adopting.
Good looking pupper there.
My lab mix loves tennis balls, but she doesn't play fetch really. She takes them and rips all the fuzz off them and then chews the remaining ball into pieces.
Our husky doesn't play fetch, at all. He'll chase something twice, then the next time you throw it he just looks at you like "why'd you do that, I'm not getting it again."
Going to take Teddy to obedience school after this last round of shots. Really embarrassed me on a walk today. Made it out 50 feet away from my house and he saw another dog on a walk in front of us. He started pulling like crazy on his harness and I stopped walking and firmly said, “No”. He continued to pull, started jumping like crazy and thrashing while howling like someone was beating him for about 5 min. Dog was out of site but he was still acting crazy. Had a neighbor run out of their backyard to make sure everything was okay. Had to pick him back up and carry him in the house. Let him relax for 20 min and took him back out on the walk and he was fine.
Edit: Anyone ever have an issue like this and what steps did you take to correct the behavior?
Going through it now with Olive. She’s great until she sees another dog on a leash. If they are just in their yard, she doesn’t make a sound. On a leash though, and she does exactly what your dog did. I’m interested to see the replies.
Yeah, I was shocked. Teddy looked like a Marlin breaching the surface on a deep sea charter. Kind of funny after the fact, but that’s an absolute no go from here on out. I’ll report back with Obedience School stuff later. He’s due for his last shot in a week.
My Husky doesn't play with toys basically at all and doesn't play fetch either. He just likes running around and his kiddie pool when we fill it up.
Olive is 2, so I don’t know how much obedience school would help. My wife is trying to train her like she did with our other dogs but she isn’t caring as well when olive sees another dog on a leash.
How old's your pupper?
7, 8 in Feb. Looking to get a sidekick for him soon.
Find a good trainer and it will help
As a greyhound Dad, this video of greyhounds smoking horses made me strangely happy.
I’m excited for her to grow up and become more and more our dog, but I’m going to really really miss her at this stage
In Hunting Trips of a Ranchman, Theodore Roosevelt writes about hunting turkeys on the plains with greyhounds. They’d apparently catch them in flight. Pretty cool.
are you still scared that he could get hurt by another dog?
I ask because dogs are a little like humans, they also need to see other dogs.
i think your reaction was a little inappropriate. He was maybe just excited to go see a potential buddy. I would’ve approach the other person and ask if the dogs could meet just for a second and you are on your way.
obviously if your dog is aggressive towards other dogs, you don’t take the chance.
again I am not an expert but my experience is this.
i used to walk my parents dog in a trail in the wood whenever I was dogsitting , but still a fairly busy trail. I did not keep him on a leash, the worst dogs were the ones with the anxious owners that were pulling on the leash at the first sight of another dog. I would sometimes tell them to just « let them go, mine won’t fight back he will just get out of there and continu walking if he feels aggression ». Most of them would just decline, the ones that tried it never saw their dog so relax with another dog. They were very surprised to see their dog just playing with another dog when they usually snapped at them
never had a bad experience doing this. But my dude was without any malice whatsoever so a conflict was out of the question. My situation was easy, but you gotta try it or you will never know.
That seems like bad advice
maybe, like I said I can only go with my experiences and usually the more the owner is scared the most aggressive the dogs got. I might have this backwards too.
Walking dogs unleashed is never a good idea imo
i understand that
but would you encourage your dog to interact with another dog on a walk when he wants to go see him or not?
so you never let your dog interact with other dogs?
When I'm walking them and someone has their dog off leash when mine aren't? Absolutely not. That's a terrible idea and I'm not about to let my dogs off leash in a public highly traffic park. I'm not going anywhere near someone who isn't controlling their dog while I'm walking mine.
In a dog park or at friends where there's a yard? Yes.
no, i meant in his situation. Both dogs on a leash.
Again no. I don't know the other person or their dog. Mine are fairly well trained but who knows if the other dog is, or if it's aggressive. I'm not gonna find out.
Ok. It’s your choice
It also depends how big your dogs are, I understand the anxiety for a very small dog
i said fairly busy not highly but it is also a wood, not in a street of right in the city
That place, we would see people every 5-10 minutes with dogs in the summer.
Social interaction is huge with dogs. User IHHH could be into something with letting them meet. Obviously keep both leashes and don’t give them much free reign.
No, I just don't want him acting like a mad man when he's on the leash and isn't getting his way. I don't allow him to meet any dogs at this moment because he's not up to date on his vaccinations. On the flip side, I'm not going to call out to someone 50-75 yds in front of me to stop walking their dog so mine can catch up and smell him because my dog is howling. Would also not let my dog interact with any dog that is hyperactive on a leash.
i was giving you a different perspective but you are right, he doesn’t seem ready to meet other dogs. You know him better than I do.
Our little Papillion got sprayed by a skunk in the backyard last night. Made for a long, fun night.
Any suggestions for food for an 11 week old Great Pyrenees?
