Yeah just use sprays in rooms that the bird isn't in and try to take steps not to spread the airborne particles toward the birds. There is minor risk this way.

For me. I just don't use perfumes or spray deodorants. Roll on is fine. I use Teflon but my kitchen is far from the birds and I have good ventilation. I use 'spray and wipe' cleaning sprays but I spray into a cloth before wiping surfaces so particles don't get into the air.
>>
>>2947528
Ok ok... I have to start to take steps towards a bird safe home.
But if I spray something in the morning, could I take my bird to the bathroom in the evening for example? If she would like showers or something. Being 100% sure that there is nothing in the air
>>
>>2947535
Yeah sure. Don't need to be THAT autistic about it. Otherwise even pigeons will be dropping dead in droves just because a car drove past or a woman sprays some perfume. Still always best to be cautious. Take reasonable steps.

I'm a Rat breeder, who currently has 3 litters of babies atm! I also breed mice. Currently i'm raising some Marten babies (Red eyed black rats, who have a color dilution gene that makes their color look like pencil lead), Spotted Tabby (Diluted black with darker spots across the body), and Silvermane (Longer, whispy fur that is much lighter than normal rat colors).

Ask me anything you want to know about rats.

Thanks for the advice, I will deffinitly go for a breeder next time, I just live in a super rural area.
I got them from a pet store , they were being sold as feeders, I've tried taking them out in the cardboard box they use as the hide, and I've kept them in a room with me for hours with not so much as them peeking out. I really don't want to give up on these guys , but it's really disheartening.

>should I be shouting, tapping their nose, holding them down, spraying with water, shaking a large jar of coins?
No. Don't punish the dog for YOUR mistakes in raising him.

Manage your puppy. Use of crates, x-pens, and leashes as well as heavy supervision, redirecting him to appropriate activities... This is what you were meant to do from the start. The same stuff still applies, it's just gonna take longer now since he has to unlearn bad habits and learn new good ones, rather than him just learning good ones from the start. On top of good management, you use training to reinforce good behavior. Exercise and play with your puppy, offer food enrichment activities like chews or stuffed kongs, etc.

Reinforce (reward) good behavior with food, attention, toys, play, and access to things he wants (going outside, being let out of a crate, etc.) Do NOT reinforce behaviors you don't want to see repeated. Set him up for success so he finds offering good behaviors easier than offering bad ones so you get the opportunity to reinforce more good behavior.

>>2946852
If you don't have space for fetch (which you probably do--you don't need to throw the toy far to make it fun for your puppy,) you can play tug. Do trick training. Take him to fun places where he can explore with his nose.

Please don't play fetch up and down the stairs, that's a good way for a puppy to get injured. At 7 months he is also too young to go for runs with you. Wait until at least a year old for that.

>>2946835
Found with broken teeth, yes. But nothing says chewing bones was the cause. Wolves don’t tend to chew bones, neither should dogs. Bones should be given raw and dogs left to tear the last of the meat away before being discarded. Anyone arguing that is a fucking moron.

What’s really disturbing is that it seems totally unprovoked — the dog didn’t act aggressively in any of the vision that we’ve seen and the dog had no idea what was going to happen when he went to the man
