I'm looking to start a career as a dog trainer, but I'm not entirely sure where to start. I know a lot about dogs; I watch youtube trainers like Zak George, read up on animal behavior, and spend a lot of time working with my own pets. I've even been hired by friends and family to work with their dogs on things like mild leash aggression and basic obedience. I taughtmy brothers cat to walk on a leash and jump through a hoop. I think I'm pretty familiar with the basics and theory behind dog trainj g, but i know that's still a pretty...

Check out this, perhaps?
I have no idea about how good the American one of it is, but the APDT here is okay. Or, well, I know those registered with it are. There might be advice to be found on the site, or you may be able to link up with a local trainer for advice.
Sup guys, fast question. I was thinking about getting a small parrot for a pet, but the problem is, there is nobody at home from 8 am to 2 pm on most days except weekends. Should I get one parrot as my pet, or will it get wild/sick? Should I get a pair then? Thanks!
My suggestion would be to not get a parrot as a pet.
Getting two at the same time can sometimes lead to them being invested in each other, instead of you. People I know with multiple parrots got them at different times and are home most the day, or work somewhere that they can bring the parrot with them.
I was reading something about it, and not being tied to me is the biggest disadvantage for me. But some people say, that those 6 hours a day aren't too much, but I am still not sure. I really love birds, but I don't want it to suffer.
I'm going to be teaching a short class on animal rights. We're going to discuss vegetarianism and veganism, animal experimentation, animal shelters, animal abuse and neglect, dog fighting, breeding, all those kinds of things.
Are there any other topics that ye animal lubbers think I'm missing? I wanted to do a segment on the rights of not-so-cute animals like insects and spiders, but I'm not sure if these kids (high schoolers) are ready for it
It's all well and good to talk about vegatarianism and veganism, but don't make out like people are evil for eating meat, because they aren't and it's only being unnecessarily antagonistic.
A big topic most people don't think about is animal nutrition. You'd be surprised what shit people give to their dog or cat, let alone any other animals.
As for the rights of insects, just touch on the fact that it exists. I wouldn't bother actually exploring it.
these little critters have infested my whole school. they especially live on jackfruit trees.
the school has tried applying pesticides but they don't work at all.
from an identification key, i deduced that these are from order protura, but i'm not sure.
could you please suggest ways to kill them all?
also, what's the insect's main consumers?
LOOK AT THIS NERD DOG LOL
Are Shibas really that hard to train?
Are there any animals that can be housed in a 15 gallon or smaller that dont need any electricity (lighting heating ect) that arent hamsters or fuzzy things. i already know fire belly toads can be are there any others?
What the hell man
Hello peas/an/ts what good in the world today?
That's one fancy horse
So /an/ what's your stance on the import and inter-state salamander ban in the US?
I'm european, but seeing that something like this might happen in the future here as well I'm highly interested in this.
I personally agree with the import ban, and oppose against the inter-state ban. As any murican here commented on the USFWS survey regarding it? If you didn't you are too late anyways, it is over now.
Pic related, a sexy salamander.
I'm pissed off about it.
Theres no reason to have an interstate ban since afaik the disease doesn't exist in any us captive population. I can sort of understand the import ban, but they absolutely should be allowing tested animals to be imported. The disease is completely possible to test for so there's really no excuse for that.
The excuse from a pro is that there isn't any test with false negatives available for any disease. That whole rant is cherry picked as fuck though.
Do you yourself breed salamanders?
Anybody interested in fish biology and who has heard about the recent decline in pacific sardine numbers may be interested in this little thing I found:
What was the largest recorded animal to be taken down by ants?
Hello, I want to start breeding cherry shrimp (Neocaridina davidi) (as well as blue and yellow varieties). What would be your requirements? also What would be the best diet to enhance their color?
1. don't keep the different colors in the same tank. If they breed with each other, you'll end up with regular brown offspring.
2. a 5 gal would be a nice starting point for a group and their following offspring.
3. carotene rich food helps a lot
More an occasional lurker of /an/, but recent family situation got me to post this. I'm home for a few days with family for reasons, and I learned that they've adopted two small hares to raise until they're ready to be set free. The situation is that my dad was plowing some land with his horse (he likes doing oldtimey stuff with horse), and discovered he ran over a hare burrow/den/nest/thing. These two were the only survivors. On sister's pushing they're trying to rear them to safety for releasing now, like said. They're currently giving them some...

A topdown pic of their current box. They're on lap whilst they get bottlefed
And finally a shot of one of the cuties trying to climb over my chest/shoulder after feeding
Dunno too much about wild animals or hares, but here's this:
They seem to be under 2 weeks, maybe someone else will weigh in on that. Pick up a heating pad, should be just $10 and will help a lot.
Can I let my puppy chew on these? It's from leafy broccoli
"can dogs eat broccoli" or "is broccoli safe for dogs"
click where it says "search"
do this every single time you have this issue from now until dog dies. repeat with next dog, also with children, and any other piece of knowledge you don't know.
