Dog Laws & Legislation > Vietnam: Make It Illegal to Torture an Animal

It ain't over- till the fat- kitty sings

It is horrible how in the Arab countries dogs are seen as equal to roaches as pests, in some countries they might be lunch. Just for a moment...in America, I work for a big box hardware store. Many customers are looking for the most effective way of killing rats and mice. I also work for a big box pet store and have rats as companion animals at home. Do you see how confusing this can be? The best food for healthy rats and mice. Knowing how intelligent rats are in comparison to how fast they can breach a garbage can? It's the animal, it's the culture.

Choosing the Right Dog > Bullmastiff protection question

I would say if your pup is over 60lb that's all the defense you need. Sophie is terrified of human strangers. But people will cross the street to avoid her face to face. Especially with bully mixes or mastiff mixes, just from a visual standpoint...bad guys will not come near your home.

Dog Health > Are these serious spay complications?

I don't know. Typically the spaying/neutering aftercare page says keep them quiet for days afterwards. Stumpy a Stumpy Manx leaped up to a door top after her surgery with no ill effects. Callie met Sophie hours later, he did mark a book shelf but then proceed to bolt out the door. He was found within the hour and settled nicely. A bit tight on the steps for a few days but he healed quickly. I think it totally depends on the individual.

I'm curious, haven't been here in a dog's age but saw that Dogster is taking over Dog Fancy...did they get rid of the durned spambots or what?

Dogs and a Clean Home > Dog Smell

Hum with two dogs and five cats I feel your pain...cats mark territory and male dog has intestinal fortitude big time. For the pups Buddy Wash is a nice shampoo. Clean Day products have more natural scents and smell AWESOME...Lemon Verbena especially. We have a wax warmer, electrical and far safer than candles. Potpourri in strategic spots, oh and something called Zum Mist...makes your home smell like a head shop but much nicer than wet dog.

Behavior & Training > Teaching Callie to be Less Protective?
Caledonia

Sad-Eyed Doggie- of the Lowlands

Could use some advice. Callie is terrific with other dogs, cats, children, adults during the day as long as they're not in uniform...yeah mail carriers and police people seem to piss him off.
But the problem is at night. He seems hyper protective of me when we walk at night. Not the best neighborhood so that can be a good thing in moderation. But any people at night, even driving by or sitting in a parked car.
How can I gently get him to tone it down? The young man waiting for a bus doesn't need to hear a Cujo rattle from the darkness ya know? It's embarrassing sometimes, you're supposed to be an ambassador for the breed dumdum

Behavior & Training > Dangerous Dogs Indeed...

Yes you made a good point there. All the breeds on the list are not for first time dog owners no matter how well meaning they might be. And also yes despite the fact that even a cocker spaniel will attack if you beat it bad enough...a bigger stronger dog is going to more damage. I just hate seeing bullies on another **** list. Like you say most people can't identify an actual pit bull, it's usually subjective. It also turns into journalistic shorthand...dog attack...pitbull...and it was a big headed akita mix...just sad.

I know a site that calls itself Puppy Toob isn't going to be full of any science rockets but this list is obscene.
St. Bernards and Great Danes by virtue of just being BIG...D'oh
Chows I've had limited experience with and maybe they're more adult dogs than family dogs, but I don't know about dangerous
Dobermans, I used to know two dobies quite well. Their owners dressed them in shirts and they were at every party, big lovable galoots
Malamutes and Huskies-I had a huskie once. Strong, energetic, ideal working dogs, did I say energetic? But dangerous no
I think most of us agree that with hybrids it's iffy to know how much wolf we're talking about
German Shepherds and Rottweilers-Trained as any number of service dogs, police dogs, and yes guard dogs. Also particularly with GSD's one of the most devoted dogs you'll ever know
Then of course numero uno on this list...wait for it...The Evil Pit!
There wasn't anywhere to contact these idiots so I wrote in their rescue story section. Briefly covering how we came to adopt Sophie and Callie. How they are the perfect dog for us. Then I revealed their breed and said they should be ashamed of themselves. Saying they're dog lovers while promoting hate and BSL laws.
Pathetic, ignorant, that's what's dangerous

I agree, in this situation you might be able to reason with these people somehow. You're worried about their dogs, you're worried about your dogs, and maybe you can find a way to work together.
I just hate electric fences...
There are people down the way that have one up to the sidewalk line. It's facing a busy street and there are wild critters around here too. We have to avoid that block and that poor dog is a sitting duck.
