How do I get my dog to stop barking at every noise outside?

>car door slam
>bark
>leafblower outside
>bark
>ups truck pulls up
>bark

She will also bark and cry at any animal on tv. I’ve been trying to train with the “quiet” command (giving her a treat everytime she’s calm), but it doesn’t seem to be having any effect.

I couldn’t even get through Rings of Power ep 3 without her barking at the warg onscreen.

what tips or tricks do you have for getting a dog to like car rides? my puppy can't stand them, she loses her shit every time. so far i've tried riding slowly around the block to desensitize her, but she still freaks out every time. i tried to associate with good things but she refuses any treats in the car and won't play with any toy i bring.

I may be retarded but I call my dog over to me when she barks and tell her to sit next to me. If she keeps barking i'll lightly hold her muzzle. She's usually calm by then cus she likes having her nose held and cheeks stroked at the same time.

One of the few ways of getting a dog from the dog shelter without it being "fix" is claim that you owned the dog before it was taken to the shelter.

You just need falsify proof of ownership. I'm thinking about do that to get a dog. But I'm not sure how to falsify proof. My best idea is to take the dog out of the cage when nobody's looking and use a Snapchat background filter picture. Do you guys have any ideas?
>>
>>4307827
i wish, but it doesn't seem feasible. she's going to have to get used to it since she'll be coming with with me to work in a couple weeks. i hope that'll help but i really don't want there to just end up hating car rides.

>>4307920
If it's not against the city code it isn't, if it is it is. Any other argument for neutering and spaying is pretty easy to BTFO. Even the lifespan one was debunked. Dog lifespan is not reduced in countries where neutering is illegal, because they still neuter very late in life if it is to cure disease. It helps that they are small countries and many of their vets aren't incompetent retards who instantly max out the anesthesia and kill peoples dogs like cheapo clinics in the US.

If they don’t tell them you are taking them to a vet for a vasectomy or hysterectomy because you have ethical objections to institutionalized animal abuse. If they don’t budge tell them you’re going to a breeder and leave.

>>4308169
Apparently the shelter gives citations for failure to neuter.
>>
>>4308187
If they are not neutering them in house, you can get a vasectomy/ovary sparing spay (actually more ideal than leaving them intact) which is sterilization and no shelter would give a shit, or you can lie and say your friend came over to see your new dog, and they ran out and were hit by a speeding subaru driver who took off right after.

jesus christ my normally 20 minute walk took 40 because i had to stop literally every step because my dog kept pulling. i think this training method might just be bullshit. she doesn't pull as intensely as she used to but she keeps trying to run ahead of me the second we start going instead of walking nicely at my side. im so frustrated since i just wanted a relaxing walk to destress
>>
>>4308267
pulling is good. buy a harness meant for pulling and reduce the amount of energy you need to put into walking. train your dog on directions, stopping, and starting and get a scooter or something.

Anyone know if EcoEars is good for a Shih Tzu's ear infection? She just started shaking her head today and I looked in her ear and there's some reddish black gunk that she's sensitive to me pulling out. She had an ear infection once before like 2 months ago but I paid $200 for a vet visit and antibiotics and cleaner. And I really don't wanna pay that again for at least a little while.

The first day I got my puppy it was an almost 3hr ride to the breeder, and it took about an hour of that ride for her to chill out, so after that I decided to do lots of short drives with her while only taking her to places that she would have fun. I'd take her to my parents house to play with my family, the hardware store where she always gets treats, tractor supply, the dog park, pet smart, conservation trails for walks. Also lots of treats in the car, fortunately my dogs got a strong stomach and doesn't get motion sick. That's about it though, I just started with fun places that were less than 5 minutes away and worked up from there.
>>
>>4307486
I love when they do that
>>
>>4307857
That's a pretty stupid way of doing it. What I see work for many people is they foster the dog first, since many shelters only require the dog to be fixed after being fully adopted, then if the person has a fenced in yard where the dog can't escape to reproduce the shelter is more likely to let them adopt the dog without it being fixed especially if the dog isn't adopting out very well. At the end of the day some shelters are better than others for that sort of thing and it will also depend on how much pressure the shelter is under to move dogs out if their capacity to take care of dogs is limited chances are better.

Alright bros help me out here. I've been considering getting a dog (ideally a puppy) and I've set my mind on a Border Collie seeing as my family used to have one back when my mother and aunt were kids.
I've done some basic research and know that I'll have to get supplies for the puppy (food, bedding, shelter, safety, enrichment) and that I'll have to register it with a vet to get it's vaccines done. I also know that I'll have to spend a lot of time with it to get it to be comfortable and obedient with me.
What I want to ask you lads is what advice would you give to someone who's lived with dogs before but never fully raised one by himself? What important things do I need to do that I absolutely cannot ignore? What little things might I forget that are essential?
General advice is also appreciated - to reiterate I've no real idea how to raise a dog.

>>4308518
Not really an option for me, since despite it being ground floor, it's a shared house and I can't fence off the garden because me rentoid.
Sure it would be the best, she was even a villa puppy who'd bark when she wants out.
But not really achievable for me. I want her to learn to go to the plastic thing with the pad on it if she really wants to go outside of scheduled walk times

expect the worst and prepare for it. hope for the best. that way, you'll have no nasty surprises. binge the following channel to prepare yourself. also look up activities on YT people with BCs do with their dogs to get an idea and feel for the breed and the lifestyle.some activities a BC would likely love to do would be nosework, Treibball, high level obedience, sorting games, running/jogging, dog on dog socialization and play, play wrestling with you, tug, fetch... look these up.you should want to do them and they should jive with your lifestyle already. BCs will need a lot of physical and mental stimulation every day. think around 2hrs of high quality engagement or more every day , minimum. playing grab ass and play wrestling and tug and running may be quite taxing in the summer when it's hot on you too. likewise, getting out at 0500 in the morning, in January, in the freezing cold to exercise your dog before work may be a bit much for some people. you and your dog will get dirty so you need to factor the cleanups in with your daily time spent on the dog. make sure you have free, open and safe spaces to do your training close by. it's going to be double annoying if you have to take a 30min car ride to get to a place you can let your dog run. also, properly CRATE TRAIN your dog from the first day they arrive.only buy high quality toys, leave the pet store shit be. KONG, Chuckit!, Collar, Starmark are what I use/suggest. Avoid plastic, use rubber and foam instead. it's easier on the teeth and gums and safer. same goes for dog beds, an orthopedic foam mattress is best. vaccinations are done by the vet, the dog will/should have a "pet passport" started by the breeder where those will be documented. "registration" may or may not be needed depending on the shithole you hail from. get the high quality food you can afford to.
>>
>>4308781
start housekeeping training for brushing the coat, trimming fur like sanitary cuts and paw pad and brushing teeth (softest medical baby brush you can find and PROPER technique!) as early as possible too. exposure therapy is the best puppy training you can do: take the dog to as many places as you can and expose it to as many stimuli as you can without making a big deal out of it: stores, car rides, bikes, other puppies, cats, other animals, all sorts of soil. get in as much off leash time in safe areas as early as possible too (while you could in an emergency still catch them), this will help a lot later. puppies are still growing so they are hugely food motivated. use food to "bind" them to you. make them work for their food by using their daily ration of dog food as treats in your training. keep training session short. 15mins is a lot for a 10 week old puppy and should be followed up by enough rest. you can increase the time as they mature and learn. keep them away from big/intense dogs that do not know how to dial the intensity down to accommodate a small puppy. you do not want your dog to get hurt and trampled during play. always try to match size and intensity level.

Dipshit weirdo that talks about dog balls too much. His training doesn't even work. I genuinely tried this guy for my leash reactive dog and fixed everything by doing the exact opposite of what he said. Apparently several anons have had bad experiences with training stuff that's particular to him being too hard on their dogs or slow to work/totally ineffective.
>>
>>4308917
Larry Kringe's training IS too hard on dogs. The older your dog is, the worse he is for them. A lot of dogs are smart enough to live without his brand of "structure" and are happier without it. Most dogs prefer an in between where they are never 100% yours but never 100% free either. Border Collies are one of those. In fact, a BC is much better with as little routine as possible because they WILL hold you to it and then when you are injured or ill you WILL be fucked.

Absolutely fucking retarded and a good way to get karen to lobby her friends in the city to put your dog down when it bruises karen jr when surprise-pet. Your dog should welcome and enjoy totally random pettings and not be surprised by them. Collies, especially, because they are somewhat aggressive and nippy.

Your dog MUST always be ready to be pet at complete random and not give a shit.

I thought having an aggressive shitheel dog was the American thing, with all the neurotic german shep-oids running around this country and how many people train them with beatings and shock collars set way too fucking high, but thanks for letting me know your country is just as retarded. I love news stories where dogs get put down because they snapped at and very mildly wounded a kid who randomly pet them, brushed against them, got too close, etc. It's even more entertaining when the dog was such a neurotic shitheel they seriously attacked the child, like the pyrenees that dragged a kid under the table for stepping on their tail.

My dog can be pet at any time by anyone and not give a shit. My dog can and will take their walks at any hour I feel like and not complain if they are early or late. My dog is calm in cars, in crowds, at the vets, at the groomers, in parks, and in stores If someone steps on their tail she does not attack them. Because my dog is intelligent and well trained, not an aggressive neurotic retard. If your dog can't handle any of that shit I really hope it gets put down before it breeds. We don't need any animals that bite people for touching them, and we don't need any pit-mommies making excuses for a dog that bites a kid for touching it.

How's socialization going anons? My bitch started off being snappy at other females but we worked though that with positive reinforcement. Only problem now is she gets super food possessive. She'll even snap at other dogs for drinking water from their bowl when she has her own.

Its so bad that when I go to equally reward her and another dog for doing a trick, only way to make her not get mad at the other dog is to feed her a treat, then feed the other dog and her at the same time, its getting ridiculous. Been thinking of locking her in the bathroom every time she tries her shit but i don't know if that'll give negative associations with other dogs coming over.

So I'm looking after a neighbours Dachshund, and the little bastard keeps picking fights with my dog. My dog is about fifteen times his mass and if she wanted to she could probably bite him in half.
She's only 2 years old and she's still basically a puppy. She gets excited and pounces at the smaller dog, and he seems to interpret it as a fight and attacks, and makes a LOT of noise about it. She doesn't seem to know what to do with him at that point and she grabs him with her paws and growls a bit until either I break them up or the sausage calms the fuck down.

It's usually not food, he'll snap at her if she tries to steal his food but she doesn't escalate it. It only really happens when she gets excited and tries to play.

Any tips on how to deal with this?

I will not care until you can find a statement from her husband, sir. If he can corroborate her story, then it is sad, and that particular dog should have been put down for disordered behavior.

However, regardless of isolated incidents, the statistics are clear. While one dog averages less than one fatal mauling per year to be blamed on operator error such as woman ownership, the pitbull averages over 30 for no discernible reason, so it is clear what the rational course of action is my brother in islam.

Aussies aren’t spitzes.
>>
>>4311461
Yes, they are. They are ultimately descended from viking herding dogs. All collies are spitzes, but not all spitzes are collies.

Even the "german shepherd" is descended from spitzes and is for all intents and purposes as much of a spitz as any other. The only reason it isn't a spitz is to make more arbitrary distinctions within kennel clubs, and prevent people from realizing that a good collie or shepherd is just an even more autistic spitz.
>>
>>4311463
Collies are there own class of Herding dogs.

Fact of the matter is Aussies are more related to livestock guardians of the Pyrenean mountains (based on genetic sequencing and testing for markers)

Being a spitz mutt doesn't make them no longer a spitz. Collie is spitz with floppier ears, and australian shepherds are for all intents and purposes spitzes.

Once you are in the spitz club you can never leave. You will always be an honorary aryan.

That's like trying to say anglos aren't north germanic people because they're mutted up a bit with west germanics and the odd gaul and med, and they're a little more autistic and dog-like than the average scandi, but they're still north germanic people in the end.

Does your dog have deformed eyelids?

https://vcahospitals.com/know-your-pet/eyelid-ectropion-in-dogs
>>
has anyone seen how dogs react to other dogs dying?
not thinking of accidents, just waking up to find the old dog dead in bed and the other dog finding out about it

also been wondering how a dog would handle seeing a dead dog being buried
>>
>>4311809
No.
>>
>>4311812
both dogs and cats try to wake them up initially

this last longer in dogs and segues into visible anguish and depression. they will stay near the body, look for what killed them, and even guard it. cats quickly accept that the body is an empty shell and consume it. it can take dogs days to weeks to accept that the body is an empty husk, usually when it begins to rot.

scent seems to drive the threshold of identification for them. when you stop smelling alive, they give up on you. you smell like something else and clearly are not coming back. this is the same reason animals will eat necrotic toes off of diabetics while leaving the rest of them alone.
>lmao why do you have food glued to your foot?

there are very few species that are simultaneously smart and stupid enough to think a body has something special to it even after it dies. usually ones with a strong limbic system and weak prefrontal cortex. as long as the dead are identifiable in some way, those creatures feel they are actually still alive.

I'm gonna take my dog to the vet here soon but I was curious if any of you might know what this is.

My dog keeps aggressively scratching and biting the top of his butt. So not his butthole but kind of near the lower back near his tail. I've scourged for fleas to no avail and given him a deep oatmeal bath but he's still scratching there. Could it be worms? Vet has told us before that he has allergies as well and with the weather changing to cold fall weather I'm thinking that might be a cause.

for healthy, well fed, well groomed dogs I'd ahve to agree. you wash off their natural fur and skin bacteria, they kinda get more prone to catch something else that could make them smell worse. ofc, you need to wash of the cow or horse poop, the dead deer or the cat shit your dog may have rolled in. but otherwise, a good brushing a few times a week, a good face wash with a warm wet microfiber cloth and hosing down their privates after shits is the way to go imo. if your dog smells, go see a vet to check their teeth and skin for infections...

Despite being bred to be highly biddable, australian shepherds only perform as well on obedience tests as huskies and salukis, two dogs that were never once meant to be obedient. For reference, Salukis work independently, and mushers only expect one out of 12 huskies to consistently listen to a mere 4 commands and figure out how to do everything else by themselves. Australian shepherds are meant to work closely with their handlers and follow every command without fail.

They are also prone to obsessive behaviors and aggression.

The border collie is without a doubt the superior dog. They are more intelligent, less aggressive, less dangerous, and more talented herders. If you want a herding dog that can also protect the flock, it is not possible. Get a dedicated guard dog. The aussie was a failed experiment.

First of all, you are a filthy gaijin. Japan is the smartest country in the world with the smartest dogs in the world. Second of all, australian shepherds are too dumb to do anything. That is why people are breeding them to be smaller, because they are useless and just attack children. Leading researchers from the israeli institute of canine research estimate that full sized australian shepherds will go extinct by 2050. They are also being renamed "american shepherds" to avoid slandering australia by associating them with yet another child mauling dog and reduce the total amount of cultural appropriation in the world.

Australian shepherds often perform as well or better than other breeds on obedience tests.

There are a number of misconceptions about Australian Shepherds and obsessive behavior. Australian Shepherds are not prone to obsessive behaviors and aggression. In fact, Australian Shepherds are one of the least likely breeds to exhibit these behaviors. Australian Shepherds are typically considered to be one of the most intelligent and gentle dog breeds, and are commonly used as guide dogs and therapy dogs.

There are many different breeds of dog that can be used for herding, and no single breed is "superior." The border collie is a popular breed of dog for herding, but they are not the only breed that can be used for this task. Many other breeds, such as the Welsh Corgi, Australian Shepherd, and the Shetland Sheepdog, are also well-suited for herding. Additionally, many guard dogs, such as the Australian Cattle Dog, Australian Shepherd, >>4312821
and the Rottweiler, are also well-suited for guarding flocks. So, if you are looking for a herding dog that can also protect the flock, it is possible to find one that is suited for your needs.

This statement is blatantly false. There are many other countries in the world that are smarter than Japan, and many that have smarter dogs. Furthermore, Japan's intelligence levels are not static; they have fluctuated over time, and they are likely to continue to fluctuate in the future.

There are many reputable organizations that promote the use of Australian Shepherds as working dogs. In addition, Australian Shepherds are known for their intelligence and trainability. They are also known for being gentle and loyal companions.

Can a dog's nails be too short? I usually don't even trim them except for the due claw. I see most dogs, even other puppies, with nails that touch the ground while standing however my dogs nails are so short they don't.

They might just be larger than standard. Which is fine, really, but you should avoid neutering for as long as possible because larger dogs are more prone to joint issues.

A lot of time, outside of the ribbon winning "champion" show dogs, there will be many deviations from the breed standard. Show breeders "fix" the "correct" traits by inbreeding ("line breeding") to exclude alleles for "incorrect" traits like exceeding an arbitrary size standard from the gene pool, otherwise litters will be inconsistent from multiple variations of the same trait being present and only a few dogs will be perfectly in standard. This inbreeding is less common with your average pet breeder and common working breeders because a lot of parts of the standard for physical traits are arbitrary and more artistic-vision than anything important. Behaviorally most people don't need a $20k collie, just a $2k one.

The AKC prefers all dogs to be a bit smaller than they were in historical working use. Faster puppy production, less trouble from neutering contracts, more gracile and good looking, easier for women to handle. IIRC malamutes illustrate it well. AKC malamutes are meant to go into heat every 6 months, many "real" ones every 12 months, and those ones take longer to mature an are outsized for the standard. 2x larger. For working dogs the size fits the job.

AKA why dogs will never live longer, and will actually die sooner, and sooner, and sooner.

The AKC recommends retiring dogs from shows and breeding at around 5 to 8 years of age for females and 12 for males. This is the lifespan all breeds will trend towards over time. Health concerns past this age essentially do not exist to them.

Fun fact: You CAN NOT register a litter of puppies sired by a male older than 12. THEY AREN'T THE BREED, THEY AREN'T AKC, YOUR DOGS LIVE TOO LONG! NO NO NO, THEY'RE JUST MONGRELS GET OUT YE PEASANT! It's against the rules. Period. Therefore dogs are indirectly bred to live no longer than 12. Thanks for your common sense science based rules, dog experts! It's not like wolves haven't been fucking for as long as they lived for the past 40 million years without issue or anything.

There are many reasons to retire a dog from shows and breeding. Some health concerns simply do not present themselves until the dog is significantly older, and by that time the dog may have already passed its prime. Additionally, there are ethical reasons to retire a dog from shows and breeding. Many exhibitors feel it is their responsibility to retire a dog who appears to be no longer healthy or able to produce offspring. It is cruel to subject a dog to continued breeding and showing when it is clearly not in its best interest.

There are no AKC rules that prohibit registering puppies sired by a male older than 12. In fact, there are several AKC rules that promote responsible breeding and puppy care. For example, the AKC rulebook states that "Puppies should be weaned at six weeks and raised with their mother and siblings until they are six months old." This means that puppies should be raised by their mother and siblings until they are six months old. This is in accordance with the health and well-being of puppies, which is the primary goal of the AKC. The AKC also promotes responsible breeding by requiring that prior to breeding, dogs and their owners must have attended a puppy pre- purchase orientation where they learn about vaccinations, neutering/spaying, common proper kennel care, and important information.

At least know your own rules.

Fuck the AKC. Fuck purebreds. Fuck breeding dogs for looks. And fuck your legacy, a bunch of dogs that rack up $20k in vet bills and then die before they turn 10.

Firm and consistent guidance and discipline desu it takes a long long time. A lot of methods are good, find one that suits your dogs tempermant. Stubborn dogs need firm discipline whereas scared dogs need a gentler approach or they'll just act out when they hear barking stimulus. And you gotta accept that dogs gonna bark desu. I like a certain amount of warning and just get my dogs to where they quit barking when I tell them too and really don't bark when I establish that it's time to quit. My GSP is my most booming barker though and I'd be hard pressed to get her to stop if somebody was on the other side of the fence without me actually walking out there and calming her.
>>
>>4307793
Constant desensitization and be very calm with them in the car, don't yell or coddle or make it seem any scarier than it is. Establish that this is just a normal thing. I never really had the problem outside initial wariness but all my drives usually end in a trip to the trails, parks, or somebodies house so mine associate rides with fun and sometimes are surprised by vet visits.
>>
>>4308064
Firmly manhandle them away from your feet everytime they attack. Don't hurt them or anything just a strong push or whatever to make them not like doing it. I usually just give all mine a strong shove with the base of my foot, I don't kick them just knock them away. It's best to immediately correct it so they associate nipping at feet with immediate negative stimuli.

>>4308434
I love this breed man but goodluck, that's a working dog. As one anon said expect the absolute worst but know that with a lot of time and direction these dogs can be the absolute best. These dogs are the kind you have to walk for an hour a day.

My general dog training tips towards all breeds is to give twice as much rewards as you do punishment but don't be afraid to provide firm discipline. First teach it that good behaviors are rewarded, then establish what NO means. Reward it the moment it does something good, don't discipline it much later. Teach it sit. Potty training is critical, this sets the tone for everything. Do not fucking punish your puppy for peeing or pooping inside until you clearly establish that peeing and pooping outside is the best thing it's ever done. Constantly observe them and if you see them squat just rush them outside, they'll figure it out, don't beat them over that shit. Only discipline young dogs if you catch it the exact moment it's doing the wrong thing, otherwise it won't understand, you can point at the pile of poop at later ages. Tailor your degree of discipline towards the dogs personality, skittish dogs need calm handling, stubborn ones need firm physical handling. Find a good negative stimuli for the dog (Beating dogs will not end well but a firm little spank isn't gonna kill it IMO)

Allergies, swollen ass glands, or fucking fleas.

I absolutely know what your talking about because dog had horrendous problems with it as a puppy and would chew up its whole ass. I had it's glands expelled, switched food, fixed fleas, tried allergy meds etc. She became neurotic about her ass and the base around her ass was either red or hairless always. I finally had to just constantly correct her everytime she tried and I never ever ever let her touch her ass. Eventually she stopped fucking with it because I literally never let her do it. She's a slut for ass scratches though.

This guy gets it, Aussies are intelligent as hell. I personally prefer Collies as working dogs but as a household pet I'll take an Aussie.

I'll admit I've met some incredibly neurotic Aussies but most of them were poorly trained young. My childhood Aussie was absolutely based by all accounts and I'm pushing my roommate towards getting an Aussie once he's done grieving over his 17 year old Chiweenie dogs death.

Anybody who tells you training your dogs to use pads is bad, is a retard. They won't get accustomed to peeing or pooping inside, but they will on PADS which is cleaner and better than this. Only reason my dog doesn't know it is because he's adopted.
