Hi /an/, i need some advice! Im gonna get a caucasian shepard really soon with my bf once we get enough money to buy it, Been a cat lady all my life but these guys are so awesome and fluffy that me and my bf fell in love.
Soooo anyways requesting some general advice about training these big guys. Or general dog training advice I guess
It will be a male most likely and un nuterd if that matters. Also my bf wants to do raw meat diet but is there a way to do that cheaply?
Pic very related, my future Loki (well not that exact one but close enough lol)
>>2130174 Sorry the truth hurts anon, but they are saying a CS is not a good first dog. They need training and proper socializing or else they can become very aggressive, bite someone, and put you in a world of shit. Please do some more research about the breed before you get one, and no, asking about them here does not count. Good luck.
Who here volunteers at a local petting zoo or park? I'm considering volunteering at this place over the summer but I'm a little hesitant. I'm not sure whats holding me back, I want to help take care of the animals but I don't want to do yard work.. If you volunteer at a local petting zoo or park what do you do?
I volunteer for Biscayne National Park. I occasionally come to work on their aquariums, help out with field trips, or just wait until people ask questions about the park, or when some one needs help identifying an animal. Shit's pretty dope. You should work for a nature park, you'll learn a lot more about your local wildlife, and you'll eventually teach others on the way. And you'll make some great connections on the way.
So a bird just flew over my car on the highway and came quite close to hitting it, and that got me wondering, do animals make mistakes or is erring human exclusive? Setting aside when they're deliberately misled or have to interact with artificial objects like windows and beer cans, do they ever fuck up and do shit like misjudge distances, speed, their own athleticism, etc.?
Of course they do. But it's complicated, I guess we should be talking about a controlled situation where there are no distracting or unexpected elements, no wind, friction of the ground is uniform etc.
But yes with most animals there is the thing that they don't have the capacity overthink and are always very, very focused on task at hand.
You both should be concerned there's even a hole in your roof big enough to let a bird the size of a startling in your house, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's let other stuff in too. That should be your priority, figuring out how they got in and fixing it or else this and worse will just keep happening. If there's an actual nest, just take it to a sanctuary and explain you can't have birds living in your roof. Or try putting... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So, I work at a local pet store and these rats were brought in with this cage. We cant kwep live rats at the store due to company change causing change in policy, so I brought them home with me. I never owned rats before but Im pretty sure this is not a rat cage die to size and how far apart the bars are spaced (one kept getting out, fixed with some heavy duty cardboard). I have a bunch of food and the bedding shown in the pic.
/an/, how do i into dogs? i only ever had cats growing up, and i would REALLY like to own a dog (maybe a greyhound, shiba inu, or german shepherd? you guys probably know better than i do).
i have no idea how to train a dog, though; do most people like bring their dogs to dedicated trainers to get the basics down (jumping up on stuff, not jumping up onto guests, crate training, housebreaking, aggression training if need be), or are you meant to do all that stuff yourself?

>>2129587 are gsds and shibas that difficult to care for? i get that there are definitely "beginner dog breeds", but considering that these guys live for at least a decade, i'm hesitant about choosing a breed based solely on ease-of-care
>>2129591 Yes. GSDs require a very active owner with tons of time to give them enough exercise, which is a ton. They will also be violent, aggressive, and even more neurotic if you do not know how to properly socialize a dog. Even further, they are a powerful dog. They can kill people. Do you really think you know what you are doing around a dog capable of taking away a life? I don't mean that as hyperbole as well.
Shibas are just fucking psycho screaming demon-dogs. They are stubborn beyond all belief, and will... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It's probably an akita. Just so you know, what are seen as "breeds" in foreign countries are just basically what happens to be the common mutt in these asiatic countries. For example, the Jindo dog just happens to be from the Jindo island in Korea. Shiba inu are just basically names given to smaller mutt spitzes that lived in Japan, the molding of a "breed" into western standards only happened some decades ago. Before then, they just let the spitz-type mutts breed however and call them whatever depending on size.
I need help potty training a two year old black and tan coonhound.
I adopted him about a month ago and at first he did fine. But recently he started pooping in the house almost every other day. I let him out on a regular basis but sometimes he will still go in the house.
Any suggestions or proven methods to help train him?
Spank his butt and rub his nose in his poo. Dog's are smart. He'll get it. Also give him a treat when he poos outside. Positive reinforcement will do a lot more good than negative reinforcement. But negative reinforcement helps too.
If they allowed the lions to kill the man, they would get people pissy at their decision as well. This is a lose-lose situation for the zoo. It is a choice between getting shat on by normal people and the law or get what on by rabid animal lovers who put human life below lion life.
It's all that stupid suicidal asshole's fault either way. What a piece of shit. If only he outed himself in his house.
