I'm adopting this boye in January. He's a 2yo mutt, 50% Russian Spaniel, 50% mystery. He's super friendly and nice dog, but also nervous and insecure, and he expresses this by barking at anything and everything. His previous owner gave him up because of the barking.

My everyday life is pretty simple, boring and uneventful, so I think I can provide enough stability for him to feel less nervous. I know that excessive barking can be managed with training and a dog can be taught to use "indoor voice" at home (my sister's dog does this silent "boof" indoors, never a full bark). But I think that it's more important to treat the cause rather than symptoms, and make the dog feel safe and build his confidence, which should in turn lessen his need to announce himself to the whole world.

Any tips and tricks to training him and building his confidence? I'm planning to go with R+ and P- with clicker and whatever motivates him most (he's half-spaniel so a solid guess would be food).

whenever he barks, beat the shit out of him. he will learn to stop barking.

So I got some retarded dumb fuck friend that thought hot boxing his dog wasn't dangerous. He claims that when you inhale the vapor and exhale it doesn't contain any nicotine in it. He exclaimed he wanted proof that second hand smoking was bad and we gave him links from the FDA, but he wasn't buying it. Infact, he claimed that dogs can take 10 times the amount of nicotine that a human can. Help me, I have no clue on how to cure his autism.

Why the fuck would anyone hotbox with tobacco? Your friend is an even bigger retard than DUDELMAOs. Not to mention secondhand smoke is still a carcinogen.

good post

Mosquitos are very shitty and no one like 'em so I have a theory on how we can exterminate 'em :
1. Everyone's gay.
2. So we have AIDS.
3. Mosquitos suck our blood but we have AIDS so they die.

I hope you enjoyed it because it took me like 15 years to elaborate this theory.

>A globster is distinguished from a normal beached carcass by being hard to identify, at least by initial untrained observers, and by creating controversy as to its identity.
So globsters aren't a type of creature themselves, it's just a term used to describe dead whales until we know what exactly they are.
Thus your question whether we know anything about them is pretty dumb.

I feel like if you watch any animal for long enough it'll start to look cute. For example, think of a tapeworm for a while. Not their life cycle or preferred housing, just the worm itself. They're just little floppy dudes who do little more than flop around their whole lives. Cute!

ofc a dog smells but it's not supposed to be noticeable unless you get up very close. and even then, they are supposed to smell of wet soil like the forrest after a rain. if it's an unpleasant smell chances are it's an infection and yeast is the most common.

>smell of wet soil like the forrest after a rain.
true but some people even have a problem with that.
ironically those are often those with 3 cats at home that you smell even before you enter their house.
>>
>>2891421
well then dogs just arent for those ppl right? what I was trying to say is that the regular person is going to smell more than a regular dog after going without a shower for 3 days. in fact, you will not want to be around most dudes after 3 days.
