My ex gf's dog he was really cool and fluffy
My ex's family's schnauzer. She got away with bossing them around too much but she was very smart, soft, photogenic, and always eager for walks!
Nala or Coffee?
Sup /an/ I found this caterpillar and wanna keep him. Anyone know what he is?
Anyone know what this tree is? (Inside bark it is super smooth)
We just adopted a 3 month old male kitten and we already have a 3 year old female cat. Do you guys have any tips to make them best friends? The kitten is currently in my sister's room and he already seems extremely comfortable, smelling us, meowing and exploring the whole room. They didn't directly meet each other but my cat was hissing at him a little under the door but she didn't try to attack him from under the door or anything. Also, he got sterilized just yesterday.
What would be the next step?
What kind of snail is this? Found in Texas.
Hey /an/. I am currently writing a book which will take place in a desert. Can you recommend any documentaries (singles or series) about them? Where they go into flora/fauna but also into some kind of tribes and most importantly how to stay alive if you would get lost in one? Did discovery chanel/national geographic did something decent about them?
would be great!
For context, I live in a villa once used as a sanitorium. The complex consists of around 15 villas and many more smaller domiciles. Recently a friend and I went on a walk and found plenty of interesting flora. Chiefly the fungi I will begin dumping.
Good names for a new puppy? Hunting dog if that helps. Don't want them to be generic. Help me out!
Hey guys, can you help me on what breed this kitten is?
My cousin just rescued it from a river a few hours ago, and he wants to give it as a gift. She's a stray and is recovering well (thank God)
Sorry if the image is terrible, I can't get any more from him today
anyone else wish he would die already?
How the fuck can I get rid of crows?
They are constantly shitting on my car non stop. It doesnt even make sense to clean it any more with how much they are shitting.
I'm desperately trying to find pic related, but everyone acts like all other strategies dont work.
Whats the best kind of leash for walking a medium to large dog?
Anybody use European/police style leashes?
if you consider the one in the pic European or police style, then yes, I use some of these
The trick is in the collar, not in the leash.
For collars, I really really like martingales. It has just enough bite to correct little problems and keep them from slipping loose of their collars. Prong collars are awesome for training, but if you have to use them more than a month, there is either a problem with you or with your dog. Figure out which. Choke collars are like ghetto martingales, and constrict way too tight. If you have a 1/2" thick chain, it will dig into the neck. A 1.5" nylon strip will apply pressure but not brutally choke the poor things. If they need that much correction, get a prong collar. Same effect and won't truly damage them.
I have 2 dogs, both over 150lb (Great Pyrs), and I use 6ft leash by Primal Pet Gear. One hand is wrapped around the handle to make sure it can't be dropped, the other is guided by the other hand for control of the dog.
A retractable gives you no control and those leashes are terrible all around. The people that use those don't have any control over their pets. The dogs have never been taught to walk on a leash, otherwise a 25' retractable leash would be pointless because the dog would be nearby them at all times.
.... on a side note, I do recommend those Primal Pet Gear leashes. We have 4. Best leashes I've ever owned. ASIN: B0146913BU.
I use a retractable now that my dog is trained for a proper leash (he had never been walked despite being almost 2). I keep him on a harness and he walks by my side most of the time. He isn't allowed off-leash because he is a runner and might not come back for an hour or two.
I have the long retractable because the shelter lied and said that he was low energy when we got him. I have weak lungs so I can't run with him but the longer leash allows him to run a bit when I give him the okay. The leash is about 26 feet long so he can run a nice bit
Why is it always happy?
The local shelter threw an adoption event after some hoarder got busted. There was a litter of about seven puppies around 10 weeks old and I couldn't resist. Anyway, he's absolutely wonderful, and everything, but apparently he had never been taken out of his kennel his whole time with her.
Pros: He goes into the kennel without a fuss every time I give him the command to, and never cries or freaks out about it.
Cons: He can't seem to recognize the kennel isn't the damn indoor toilet anymore. He's even started to develop hot spots from...

Dude, he's a puppy! Why the fuck do you have a -puppy- if you have to crate it AND you're working? You weren't ready for one, and you're making him lose out on an important learning period in his life.
Either taking some time off work to deal with him, or give him to someone who can take care of him.
Never said anything about working, bruh. Stick to the thread.
Also, how is crating him at night as a puppy different than people who crate their dogs at night during any time in their life?
What mental backflips did you have to go through to translate ''he's in the crate at night and when I leave the house'' into ''he's always in the crate and I need him to learn to stop pooping ever''?
