Behavior & Training > Citronella collars?
Bear

I'm- one-of-a-kind!- :o)
 
 
Barked: Thu Sep 6, '07 7:04pm PST 
Hi, all.

We're going to be moving into an apartment within the next few weeks, and we have a problem. They allow pets, but will not tolerate excessive barking.

Now, Bear barks when he wants attention, if there's a stranger/loose dog on our property, and if someone knocks on the door.

Maggie barks at the jingle of dog collars, other dogs, knocking at the door, and at strangers.

I understand the need to bark (Bear being 1/4 Rottie and 1/4 German Shep., and Maggie being a Min Pin, aka, the self proclaimed protector of the house).

I've tried to stop their barking, but it doesn't seem to work. I've tried verbal commands ('stop' and 'no) and the squirt bottle (they LOVE water, unfortunately).

The only other option that I was looking at would be citronella collars (unless another pup can suggest another idea?). Do any of you have experience with these types of collars?

Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > Any Breed Guesses Out There?

Hmmmm...thinking

I know pups are saying there's no Pit Bull in you, but if you take off your ears (BOL) in your main pic, and add Pittie ears, you kind of look like one (in my opinion). In the second picture on your page, you look like a Beagle or an American Foxhound.

And in your third picture I see some Smooth Collie. When I saw your fourth picture, you looked like there was a stockier breed in you, so I thought a Labrador Retriever.

So I'm guessing Am. Foxhound/Smooth Collie/Lab/Pittie.

I was "Magnum" when I was at the shelter. Mom changed it to Bear because she didn't think I looked very much like Tom Selleck big laugh

Maggie's used to be Brandy from her breeder, and Kahlua from her previous family.

Teddy used to be Regis, and Twitch used to be Buddy.

Some of these previous pups' names are so funny laugh out loud

It turns out we're not getting the Beagle. I've been kinda cranky (because of the heat) and can't tolerate other dogs, especially one with a high energy level.

BUT, we are going to foster a kitty today! Mom is going to take pics and put her on Catster. Cool, huh?

Thanks for your help!!

Thanks Kreuzer and Roxy.

If it is a false pregnancy, how long do they last?

ETA: She just got out of her fence, and I chased after her. I got her on a leash and brought her to our house for a "belly inspection". Her MGs are HUGE now, and her stomach has not expanded one bit thinking

Our neighbors have this gorgeous 2-3 year old Pittie named Gracie. She isn't spayed, and our across-the-street neighbors bring over two unaltered males (Lab/Hound and Rat terrier) for "playdates" almost every day.

Their Lab mix steers clear of Gracie (he's scared of basically everything. It's pitiful. I'm not even sure why they bring him over there.), and I don't think the Rat Terrier is big enough to...you know what (maybe he could've though. Heck, Bear's dad was a Shih Tzu/Bichon, and his mom was a GSD/Rottie. So, I guess anything is possible shrug)

Anywho, I noticed that today, Gracie has enlarged, er, mammary glands. She isn't getting a bigger belly, but I'm not sure if she's pregnant. Maybe she could just be in heat?? thinking

Any help here?? I'd hate to see another result of a planned/accidental breeding frown

Time for an update!!

Flash's dad got back to the shelter lady, and she told us more about him (see OP). Mom will be meeting him on Thursday evening, and then me and Mags will get to meet this Beagle boy.

PLEASE pass this around.

-Cross post from original e-mail-

MOSES LAKE SHELTER HAS CLOSED DOWN & WE NEED EVERYONE'S HELP PLEASE!!!

We are now up to 90 dogs today !!!

Please see list below!!

The shelter number is # 509-762-9616.

Yes, we have LOTS of dogs still. I've never seen so many little black puppies in my life! Connie is there all week, if she is cleaning she can't always hear the phone, but we got our voicemail set up so you should be able to leave a message.

This is URGENT....please come and get a dog or a cat or volunteer to help us out!!!

We currently need help with:

Customer support by walking potential adopters through the shelter!

Transporting animals to rescues or to meet another transporter in a different town to get an animal into rescue.

Foster homes for dogs and puppies!

Socializing the animals as we have a couple frightened cats and the dogs ALWAYS want someone to play with!

Thank you,
