Do 30 minutes concentrated walking per day and increase this by 10 minutes each month he gets older.

When you get home ignore him until he is settled the pet him.

Cut the praise and baby talk out, calm it right down and speak normally.

Thats a good start and you should notice an improvement.

>>2157276

It's three months old. You have a baby, he's not going to be calm.

You need to tire him out by play/mental stimulation- don't go pounding the streets on lead with him, there's absolutely no need for puppies and it's not brilliant for his joints- he'd get far more out of a good play session/training session with you.

However, once again- it's three months old, expect to have a hyper puppy around for at least a few years yet.

Hello /an/ soon to be first time pet owner ( parents never let me have any pets growing up )

But I decided I want a bearded dragon, and I've watched a few videos and I've gotten the gist of what I need, but I thought i'd consult you guys about any possible complications.

Is it difficult to optimize temperature in their tanks? And how difficult can it be to clean up after them? (such as droppings and just general maintenance for their homes)

And any other advice for a complete beginner would be much appreciated. I also considered leopard geckos...

I've own multiple bearded in my life time and they've always been one of my favorite reptiles aside from my sneks. As far as clean up if yiu have them on sand it's as simple as a scooper. For temperature it's fairly easy to maintain. I recommend a 40 gallon tank with a 150 wat basking spot bulb on one side and a uvb on the other side of the tank. Make sure you have a rock or something under the best bulb that will get hot. It's recommend to have a backing spot that is around 100-140 degrees. But with the 150wat on a 40 gallon it'll keep the tank around a solid 90

Would you recommend a tank with sand? Or are regular floored tanks fine too?

I've always done sand. It's more natural and easier to clean. 3 dollars for a 50 pound bag at your local hardware store

Hello /a/, I'm adopting a new dog this week and just found out the current owners give him a mix of Purina and Iams canned dog food. I've never liked Purina and didn't know about this other one but the reviews online are awful.

I currently feed my dog with Acana (Canada) and not an issue with his diet since I got him, now, for this new one I'm not sure how to make the transition. It can be possible that combining Acana with the other two will result in horrible diarrhea for the doggo but switching right away to this new food without transition is...

Some extra information. The dog is a Siberian Husky 6 months. Pic related is the other food they give him mixed with Purina.
>>
Do it over the course of a week or two. Do the old food with a tiny bit of new food, and each day put in more new food and less old food. do that really slowly until you are doing all new food.

If you are really absolutely opposed to the old food, you can do the same thing but with chiggens n rice. One of my rescues refused to eat the food she had at the shelter at home, so I had to do that.

Good luck. Slow and steady.
>>
Id just do a complete switch and slightly underfed the Acana for a couple of days and keep an eye on the poop. My puppy is on 5 and 2/3 cups a day so I just do 3 cups morning and 2 cups eyeballing 2/3 and he does get diahreah if Im a bit over.

I also underfeed by 2 cups once a week to give him a hard shit for his scent glands.

What are your thoughts on the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog?

Hello /an/ I need advice on getting rid of what I think are midges,

It started a couple of weeks ago. These small flies would start buzzing around in front of my computer. I'd kill a couple then the next day I'd have one or two come around again.

Now it's starting to get out of control. I have no idea where they're coming from. They're even getting into the fridge and dying inside. Every day I open the fridge door there's a group of them dead at the bottom.

I don't know where they're laying their eggs and I don't...

I bought some of those ribbon glue traps and hung em out in the kitchen my bathroom and my room and they're starting to catch some of them.

I'll probably get kicked out or more accurately preemptively leave before getting kicked out after getting my ass kicked.

My dad would probably kill my dog as a way to get back at me for leaving but I'll be homeless indefinitely and I'm not sure if I should put her down or try to take her with me my logic being that a vet killing her would at least be more peaceful than him dragging her out back to shoot or killing with a hammer or something.

being homeless with a pet is difficult. being homeless and working with a pet and nowhere to keep them is about impossible.

how long do shelters usually hold animals before killing them?

if you do it, youd have to avoid going into urban settings because of moralfags and cars. If you can manage being homless and living in the woods, or atleast having your home base be in the woods, you'll probably be fine.

FAQ Section:

>Can I keep my Betta/Goldfish in a bowl?

No, unless you wanna risk nitrite/ammonia poisoning due to small water volume/excess waste and stunted growth.

For a Betta, get a cheap 5-10 gallon tank, give him some shade via plants and add filtration.

For Goldfish, get at least a 20 gallon tank and add 10-15 gallon per extra goldfish.
You want good filtration, since these fish produce large amounts of waste.

>I wanna do Aquaponics!

I most cases this a bad idea, since both plants and fish will suffer.
Water parameters for the fish will most likely be bad due to lack of proper filtration and plants not drawing enough harmful substances out of the water.
Your plants may become malnourished since fish may not produce enough minerals/waste to properly fertilize them.

Unless you have really thought this through, you are better off with both things being seperate.

>Could I start out with saltwater?

If you never took care of fish before, it is advisable to start out with fresh water beforehand. Gather knowledge and then, over the years, you can graduate into saltwater.
Saltwater tanks are much more susceptible and need closer monitoring in terms of parameters than most freshwater systems.
Also if money is an issue, be prepared to spend at least 500$-1500$ for your first saltwater setup and rather choose a big tank (55gallon+) to allow more stable water conditions.

>>2155626
>Is my lighting sufficient for the plants I wish to keep?

Unless you have a PAR Meter, it is hard to measure whether your lighting is truly sufficient.
If you got LEDs you could try using the Lumen per Litre. Let's say you have a 54l tank and use an LED that has 1600 Lumen.
Divide the 1600 by 54 and you got roughly 30 lumen per litre which is somewhat in the higher medium range.
So if you got a specific plant, just google it's lumen per litre or use flowgrow...

>How can I get rid of Snails?

Most of the time, it would be sufficient to just reduce your feeding.Most snail species don't harm plants but if you feel you have to many, boil a cucumber, put it in the tank to lure the snails, and collect them off.
There are also certain species like assassin Snails, dwarf puffer fish and loaches that like to eat snails but again, make sure they fit in your tank and don't cause trouble with tank mates.
Loaches for example get...

Hey /an/ need some dog people in here.

I live with 3 dogs. My dog, the lab mix, barks to get the other dogs attention when the three of them play outside. If the two other dogs are playing with each other and not including him. He will bark. The only time he does not bark is when he is being chased by the other two. The barking only happens when they are running around. I'm pretty sure he's just barking to get there attention so he can be chased. I have no fucking clue how to fix this.

He's overall a quite dog. Other than this issue, he barks at...

2 MB,
Can someone please help identify these tracks?
Pictures were taken on a farm in a rural/suburb area in central new jersey by a relative of mine. The local animal population is a mix of small game, deer and the occasional black bear. She claims that the tracks are twice the size of her great dane's, and that dog is probably about 100-140 pounds. They appear to be cat tracks, but the size and stride would appear to be too big for a bob cat. Any ideas? Also, sorry for the subjective size scales, I got the photos off facebook.

they're canine, feline tracks wouldn't have the claw, all cats other than cheetahs can retract their claws, they would not be extended for walking on sandy ground.

I can understand how bad you feel, but dogs are living creatures just like you are. You shouldn't try to live their life for them. It ran away, and that was not your fault. Your dog had a seizure and died, and that as well was not your fault. These things happen to all other creatures on this planet including humans. Bad things always happen for the good things to come. Don't hinder your growth as a person because of things that are out of your hands.
