I own a caique and i absolutely love the scent of burning candles But when i bought her i found out that i could not burn candles with her around. Unfortunately my family has given me a crapton of yankee candle stuff for xmas. How fatal are candles for my bird? When i look it up all i get is "very bad" Can i not light them anywhere in the house? Can i light them in one room and have her in another, ventilated room? Should i just get rid of the candles? Pic related. Is her
>>2023450 If i had a scented candle lit all day and had her in another room..would it hurt her if i brought her out into the room w/ the candle even after it was put out and put away? Do the scents in them irritate birds? I know some very strong scents irritate animals, just dont know what affects them and what doesn't
I'm worried about my puppy and thought it'd be worth posting here until I potentially call the vet after work today.
It started on Christmas morning. I've got a 13 week old Boxer and around 6am on Christmas morning he started crying in his crate like crazy. I let him out and he had 2 sizeable poops, both of them were totally normal, though maybe on the slightly softer side, then we went back to bed. We woke up at 10, he had a pee and a little poop, he had a nice big Christmas bone and some other treats, and then had breakfast about an hour or hour and a... Comment too long.

I just got home, I had someone watching him all day, he ate all of his lunch and had a normal poop around 1, then had another one just before I got home. He also doesn't seem as tired as he was yesterday. Hopefully this means he's alright
>>2023872 Get at least a 5 to 10 gallon, 10 gallon preferably, give it some company like ghost shrimp or African dwarf frogs, and feed it pellets or flakes. To see if they're happy they'll be swimming happily and not laying on the bottom.
Why do people get so obsessed with birds? Like amateur bird watchers I mean. They'll drive 8 hours each way just at the chance to see a new bird, and sit out in the cold for hours until they do. What is the fascination, can someone explain it to me? I think birds are okay but I wouldn't wake up at 4am to go sit in the snow to look at a goose. I ask because a lot of the people where I work go apeshit for the hobby and I ask why they like birds and no one can really explain it. Yet there are some that get up at dawn every day to go do it.
I'm obsessed with birds but I've only gone out of my way once or twice to view some, such as snowy owls that decided to show up in a large group. It was like an hour drive for that, and another drive was to go watch some seals. My other bird watching adventures just goes along with hiking/taking walks, because I like to be outdoors. I also stop to watch deer, moose and bears(from a distance, of course).
I just like the outdoors and I guess bird watching is just similar to sitting by your fishtank. Its just nice to look at it.
Anyone got any tips on a first time owner of a herding breed? Border collies, cattle dogs etc. I have an 8 week old kelpie pup, grew up with labradors and it's been very different so far.
My main issue is nipping, especially at heels, hands and at clothing. I've been redirecting her to a toy (ball, tug toy, kong) but it doesn't always work especially when she is hyper. When she bites me I yell out "OW" really loudly and she stops about half of the time.
I have never used physical discipline on any of my dogs, but I need... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You're already doing what you should be, but there's a few more things you can do to get her to stop:
When she nips you and you say "OW"/yelp, you should also make it clear that playtime/interaction stops when she does this.
This means that if you're playing and she gets nippy, you yelp and then leave the room and ignore her completely for a moment. It doesn't take long for them to realize that if they want playtime and attention, they can't bite.
Alternatively, she's all hyper and you are walking through the house... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Scruff them severely, force them onto their back, spray them with the smelly shit, and then put them outside
Stuff like that
You're talking about a breed that's literally been bred for hundreds of years to specifically herd livestock, which involves nipping and biting them to get in line, so good luck lol
I have one and my only problem is that he's inexhaustible, fucking thing can run for 3 hours straight a day and not be tired, so he gets really whiny about going outside even after the point a normal dog would be dead tired
