Starting a new week with a new thread.
You'd better watch the fuck out anon, I'm on my way to your house to pet your dog
>>4417081I brushed out all of her undercoat so she's extra soft right now
dog husbandhappy ________ (fill in the blank)
it's been 2 months but i finally found someone who will let their dog play with mine at my new complex. i was getting worried i wouldn't be able to find her any playmates.
>>4417096That's lucky for your dog, assuming they get along well.
>>4417120i hope it works out but i'm worried she might be too much for the other dog. my girl got used to playing with a lab puppy, lab/newfoundland mutt, and golden retriever/malinois mutt at my old place. the dog we met today was a 1 year old dachshund and i can see my dog going too far with her. i'll have to monitor carefully next time we meet.
>>4417122Of course you need to be careful with smaller dogs, mine used to be more involved in rough housing, but lately has been more of a loner at the dog park, she still likes to meet new dogs occasionally that we run into in public though.
The breeder I got this pup from holds free group training classes every sunday. I was able to go today. Very fun to spend time with 10+ beautiful GSDs. Tuckers him out like nothing else. He refused to go on his usual walk.The place is cool. It has all the fun ramps, jumps, tubes, and stuff that are in those athletic competitions.He was just chilling out with me on the couch for like an hour. One of the first times that has ever happened. Got this banger footage during.Thanks for reading my blog.>>4417122Where is the punish window? >>4417131We need new content. :D
aint no dogs like sno dogs
This is my wrinkly boy, he's about 8 monthsHe plays a lot with my mom's dog who is around a year older, so he's almost always wiped out on the couch w/meAny tips on helping with being obsessed with cats? My mom's got two who want nothing to do with him but he's always lasered on them whenever they're around.
>>4417141The webm in op was from just yesterday
>>4417176Oh yea... Makes sense to get some mileage out of your webms I suppose.Did you go somewhere super early in the morning to train her off leash like that?
>>4417176That was just before 5:00pm you can tell from the file name
I try to get her off leash time whenever I can, I don't want off leash to be some special thing to her that she then becomes so excited she loses focus
>>4417206Same. It's really satisfying to have him sprint at me from like 100 feet away when I recall him.I've been focusing on practicing recall when he is in heightened, or diatracted states as well. Still has trouble when he's chasing the chickens, but otherwise he does really well.
>>4417210That's a good thing to practice, I have the ecollar as insurance though I don't need it often, it's good to have since I live in a leash law area, but I still like to take her on nature walks and that sort of thing without a leash. She usually only ranges about 50ft away before she rubberbands back to me, but her recall is decent at this point anyway.
>>4417221When we walk out in the field he does exactly that when we walk towards the far side. The past couple times it seemed like he was sprinting back to the gates on our way back, which is why he got so far away. Good test in a safe environment.Your dog is doing a cat thing lol.
Just got a 3 month old puppy from a local shelter a week ago. She is extremely lethargic. Pick her up, she doesnt give a fuck. Put her down, she immediately lays down. Wont even turn her head for toys, treats, anything.sheltere essentially said "not our problem anymore lmao" when I asked about it. Could this just be anxiety?
Just got back home from weekend trip and found out that the person that was supposed to take care of my dog completely neglected to come in today.My 25 lb dog somehow got into her treats and 8oz of freeze dried chicken liver and about 11 oz of joint supplement treats and she had horrible diarrhea everywhere and her stomach is really bloated. She was upset when we got back and was worried that I was mad at her about it, which is strange behavior for her. She also wont ring the bell to go out and is trying to hide the fact that she is sick. She seems pretty miserable.I contacted the vet and the vet said that she is fine, but my dog is terribly bloated and has high velocity diarrhea. I gave her some pure pumpkin puree and water. I am really hoping that she is feeling better tomorrow. Why the fuck cant I trust anyone to do the simple fucking task of watching my dog properly? I am just furious.
>>4417328After feeding her the pumpkin puree, make her fast for a day (don't feed for 24 hr). Next time leave your animal under the care of someone you trust or know, not a service. Only decent service is a kennel with experienced trainers.
>terrier passed almost a year ago>she had a good life and died later than vet predicted with CHF>always got excited to take the medication as little treats>right up to the last day of her life she was mentally sharp and active, hiding chew toys, walking around and enjoying the sun outside in the fenced yard>passed away at home in her warm bed and blanket she always loved while family and I were next to her>burst into tears thinking about herdoes the pain ever get duller? i never cried openly in my life before even when sad. everything's just been dull and unimportant since then. the only source of joy is looking at local wildlife or dogs that pass by, and I donated everything I could to the local shelters and rescues.it hurts bros
>>4417079that's a nice fat juicy cake
My Aryan Jogger turns 1 today
Will socializing a dog at a dog park transition from puppy behavior like destroying shoes and biting hand&feet for Attention?
>>4417515Happy birthday to the bitey-girl. Did you get her a stuffed child toy as a present?
dog paws are wonderful
>>4417515I found this one for sale on amazon.
>>4417079anon your dog is giving me diabetes
>>4417079The ass is fat
Going to get a new dog in about a year. Unsure what breed to go with>past dogsRottweiler/black lab mix (stray)Brittany (current dog)Belgian Malinois (family dog)Belgian Tervuren (brothers dog)Thinking about either a Tervuren, a Groenendael, or an [miniature] Australian Shepherd
>>4417660Definitely the AS
>>4417660every australian shepherd variant = superior dog for superior peoplehuskoids can't compete
>>4417661They make spider dogs now? Pretty cool.
>>4417665Really rare breed so I don’t think that’s going to be an option>>4417663>>4417672Mini or normal? Any drawbacks I should know about? After having a Brittany and Belgian Shepherds I’m not worried about the activity level of Aussies
>>4417731There are no drawbucks to aussies as long as you avoid merle dogs. Normal looking tri aussies can be cryptic merles and it's dodgy to breed them without genetic testing, and normal looking "yellow merle" puppies can turn out to be double merles when they're deaf later in life.
>>4417660>Belgian Malinois (family dog)>Belgian Tervuren (brothers dog)obviously get a groenendael for the set bonusthey are really pretty dogs too, would fit in well with the current /dog/unlike those unstable aussie posters
My doggo's gums are blowing in the wind.
Need help. Im a catfag, never had a dog before and my patience is running thinDog pisses and bites everything, when I walk, it tries to nip at my ankles. Not to mention how annoying and clingy it is. I have a fairly sized yard but when I leave it outside it screams and screeches like I'm killing him. I'm pretty certain the neighbors hate me now. The cat hates the dog idk what to do about that really
>>4417783Post picture of dog>>4417780An AS owner would never
>>4417788He's 2 months and 2 weeks old
>>4417792It’s a baby. Dogs are smart so their babies are a pain in the ass. Basically you need to be keeping it in a little pen and bringing it outside after eating/drinking/activity because it will piss/shit. And then reward them. This goes on until they’re older. If they bite you and it hurts at all, yelp. And give them something safe to gnaw on (with supervision) like a very sturdy rope. I see retriever in it so it’s a guaranteed hungry dumbass.
>>4417792give the dog back where you got it you don't deserve a puppy that cute
My dog is so preoccupied with sniffing and exploring that unlike when he was a puppy I cannot get him to play with me anymore when on walks. I think his hormones are steering him a lot, making him look out for female dogs. At home and in the garden he always wants to play, but never on walks. Any tips on how I can get him motivated and focused for games and play when im outside? It would be so practical to get him to play on walks, also for making him run and exersise but also for training and working on concentration. Ive tried with food and a variety of toys. I jump around and run and stuff to get his attention but hes more interested in sniffing (i really try and definetely look silly). If i get him to do something (get a toy, run around a tree, jump over something etc), its only for 2 or 3 repetitions max. It used to be super easy when he was a puppy. At home I can do 15-20 minute sessions of something no problem. But how do I transilate home training, specifically games, to the outside with its distractions?
>>4417813Why not let him enjoy his time outside how he wants to
>>4417797>If they bite you and it hurts at all, yelpI do that all the time. It how I taught my cat not to bite or scratch. But with the puppy he looks a bit guilty, 2 seconds pass and he does it again.>I see retriever in it so it’s a guaranteed hungry dumbassIt's half swiss shepherd/mutt. It's mother is really well behaved, no barking, no smells. A very dignified thing. Can't say the same about the father.
>>4417822Just be consistent. The smarter the adult, the more retarded and obnoxious every life stage before adult. Intelligence is mostly the ability to move past your instincts and be stupid on purpose.
>>4417814I do. All the time. But certain games are super practical to do on walks on occasion. If I can combine make shift agility or retrieving into walks it saves time, makes hims tired. Plus its good training and improves his attention span when its actually necessary, which is outside (he needs to listen when outside the most, simple as). So if i can do.that with play, that would be simply practical. Im not saying i want to do it for every minute im outside. Problem is hes not very toy driven. Atleast outside.
>>4417829I meant to say, improvised agility (with trees, fences, traffic signs etc etc)
Why he keep going in the tub?
>>4417859Maybe he likes it in there
>>4417864Its cold, wet, hard and slippery which are thing he normally doesnt like
>>4417869Yeah but it probably smells like you in there
>>4417859he wants to be wet
>>4417826Thanks anonI'll try to be more patientVet told me I can't bath him yetAny tips how to deal with the smell?
When my dog gets muddy I clean him like this.Anyone have any good reccomendations on a high velocity dryer?
>>4417902I was hoping that was deeper and you were gonna throw him in
>>4417905There's deeper ponds I'm tempted to have him run into, but his long hair makes it a real pain to towel dry him properly. I think one of them is the runoff for my septic also lol.
>>4417874Lick him clean. it's what his mother would do if she was still around.
>Average mal's response when /an/ furfags accost its owner
>>4417921Mals are too hyper imo. Groen/Terv > Mal
>>4417950He doesn't smell after I dry him and it's better than being just as wet, but also super muddy.That water is just pooled up rainwater from last week and a little goat poop. No biggie.
>>4417958Idunno man that's kinda grossI mean I'm sure it's fine, but I certainly wouldn't have wanted to jump in that water.
>>4417958If you have a backyard, just hose him down with fresh water.
>>4417967He loves to eat goat poop. >>4417972I have 20+ acres of backyard. I haven't tried hosing him off, but he hates getting water flicked at him, so idk if I'd be able to without training him to tolerate it.
>>4417976How about buying a kiddie pool and filling it with water?
>>4417977That could work. I'll try gently spraying him with water first.
>>4417919Black GSD in the OP is my waifu
Dumb question what does BE stand for? I read in some Reddit comments I know it means to put them down but idk what it stands for and Google isn't helping.
>>4417661FUCK I want a Corgi
HE IS GETTING TOO GOOD AT THE GAME. I put toy in closed box underneath a blanket. Still finds it quickly.Next step is finding drugs.>>4418042I got to pet some corgis once. They were super loud dogs. I didn't know one of them didn't like getting pet on his sides and I made him scream like I hurt him. :( It was a lil awkward.
>>4417079What sort of breeds should I look into?I'm moving out and can finally get a dog now, but I have no experience with personally owning one (most of my extended family all have various dogs). I'm a manlet (5'9"/175cm) so I don't want anything huge. I'll have a fenced yard and be able to go to a really big (4000+ac) park on weekends. I think collies are cool but don't think I could keep one adequately stimulated if I don't stay working from home.
>>4417908That's one lucky boy. What's he feasting on? Some sort of deer? Mine found the knee of a roe deer in the woods last week, still with tendons and some meat on. Proudly carried it all the way home like it was a treasure.
>>4417792>puppyyou realize they're fast infants with sharp teeth, right? like kittens but way worse, and kittens are already annoying as fuck. getting a puppy as a first time dog owner is possibly one of the worst things you could've done. I wish you godspeed for the next year or so
>>4418691What's the youngest age a first time owner should be dealing with? 6mo?
>>4418691My best friend's bitch had puppies by mistake. Coincidentally i was thinking about getting a dog so it can guard the house
I stopped checking /dog/ months agois that mentally ill freak that wanted to / did fuck his husky finally leave?>inb4 me asking that summons him
>>4418726It's gotten worseBut it's also gotten betterIt's worth sticking around for the cute webms and ignoring the troll posts
>>4418726Said freak never had a dog. It’s a massive larp using pics off various zoophile discords and his real desire is getting /dog/ deleted or at least scaring off as many people as he can. There’s also two of them. The main freak got doxed and supposedly lost internet access. The second freak is less dedicated and just really hates eevee and heather.
zoophiles get the bullet
>>4418718this is a shitpost, right
>>4418726Depends which one, I'm still here and I'm still fucking my husky every other day. I have posted timestamped photos of her cookie yet eeveefaggot/heatherfaggot is still coping and thinking i'm just LARPing.>>4418745Zoophiles get the cookie. All the cancel culture hasn't done shit to us, and twitter sides with us every time someone says shit like "all zoophiles should be shot". With how fast the society is degrading, we're not even considered that vile lately.
>>4418733>The main freak got doxed and supposedly lost internet access.no zoos from /an/ were ever doxed lmao, not even huskylust who was super open about it and uploaded videos where you could see where he lived.
>>4418796Oh he posted here huh? Go fetch a photo of his dog from the archive. I saw her in person and know exactly what she looked like. I’ll wait.
>>4418789>WeKill yourself you animal abusing faggot.
Zoos are fine but indignant LARPers as well as those who want it to be some public festival like a goddamn pride parade or something are extremely cringey and I wish they'd stop
>>4418789Post 3 timestamped full body images of your dog within the next 15 minutes or gtfo
>>4417079Do you masturbate in front of your dog?
>>4418810lol no, why is a fullbody needed? so you can dox me?>>4418801DIY, look at posts from around 2019-2020. Huskylust's girl has been dead for almost 2 years now.
>>4418836You said you lived in a third world country and doxing you would mean nothing. Didn't you already post her anyways?>DIYSo he didn't then
>>4418804thisit's a blue board how fucking hard is it to keep your posts work safeyou can go be a degenerate in /b/ all you want
>>4418838I'm not gonna go look for /dog/ threads from 3 years ago cause of some autistic retard.And I'll continue shitting up /dog/ with zoo content and sexualizing everyone's dogs. janitors don't care anymore.
>>4418845>I'm making it upLol ok then. That husky was never here, not even once.Maybe you were overtaken by the stupid and thought it was this one.
>that time when eevee's owner told anon to put muriatic acid in a dogs mouth to get a stuck chew toy outLol that's enough old /dog/ thread for me
Hey, sorry to interrupt your discussion, but I have another dog meets cows video for you all. :D>>4418649That is what the vultures around here do in 2 days. He wouldn't get close to the full corpse, and no interest other than sniffing the bones.
>>4418855>where do the steaks come out of?
>>4418853eevee's anon also told people to give them weird drugs for ticks, which ended up killing someone's dog.he also recommended giving your dog old extension cords so they could chew on them.
>>4418855oh no is his other ear starting to stand up?i wanted him to have that adorable lazy ear forever :(
>>4418859The retarded anon who became the dead border collie schizo literally just bought the drug without doing any research about a $150 box of pills. That's his fault. They even sell those drugs at walmart, anyone can get them, but you're meant to bring your dog to the vet before they give them any meds, because some breeds have drug intolerance issues. Would you prescribe yourself a drug because 4chan said so, and then blame 4chan?>wtf you guys told me to eat 5 weed cookies and now i see things 4chan ruined my life
>>4418861idiots also shouldn't recommend any medication which could kill your dog. some people are just too gullible.damn pre-2020 /dog/ was so comfy, it almost seems like the 2020 isolation eroded everyone's brain and it went to shit after that.
>>4418864Literally taking a certain kind of purebred dog for a walk can severely injure some breeds because they are so inbed they are made out of health problems. When purebred dogs are involved, so many are fragile fucks because the breeders were focused on "working" rather than the dog living past 5 that it's really on the owner to know what won't cause their inbred mess to explode.Most dogs won't develop non-functional/non-existent hip sockets if you let them get on the couch. Most dogs won't thrash on the ground and die if you give them a dewormer. If you bought one of those purebreds that's your fault and fuck you for patronizing people who genetically abuse animals.
>>4418864some people are so stupid they don't know citrus fruits are toxic to catsretards will still use pure fucking lemon juice as a flea bath anyways, never mind the pain that would cause if the cat had the most minor possible fleshwound>aw he doesn't like the bath :)>aw he jumped out and is cleaning himself :) cats are so clean>wtf why is he vomitingand they would definitely blame someone else instead of themselves for not using the same internet they got the idea from to check if it was a good idea
>>4418860Yes, thankfully. Sorry about that, but it would have actually been a sort of big deal because he's a show dog. GSD pups ears are very fickle in nature. They should be always up around 8 months, so fairly soon for him.>>4418858The little one is a soon to be steer, so the steaks are there in about a year. For now the cutie gets scratches. :)
>>4418870>show dogmore like shit dog
>>4418879He is a superb boy, and that is really rude. His drive and ability to sniff out and retrieve his toy is really excellent. I've been putting his toy in an old amazon package and then I put that in a box that has been folded closed, and then I put that under a blanket. He retrieves his toy within minutes! Also what kind of person could be so mean to such a cute lil pup?
>>4418891The issue is that it's a boy and male dogs are fucking trash. They're like feral ni...
>>4418891What a cutie
>>4418898He is obnoxiously smart as well. Smart to the point of independence I need to reign in, which is sort of a bummer, but it's for his own good.>>4418893:(
>>4418836Still waiting on as of yet unseen pictures of this mythical husky of /dog/s pastShe looks kind of like this but the dark parts of her fur were lighter, her eyes were browner, and the fur pattern was a little different with distinct eyebrows
>>4418855Cows seems like such nice animals.
>>4418845If you aren't a zoo why do you know what huskylust's dog looked like? fucking dogfucker
>>4418981They once had free will and a desire to live, but that was almost totally bred out of them. People who call other domesticated animals dumb haven’t had cows. You can kill them in front of each other and they’re just like “ok”.
>>4418990He’s a family member of mine. No one else knows.
>>4418991I don't believe you, I've seen distressed cows.
>>4418994I said almost. Some of them are unfortunate enough to have a vague idea of what’s going on but most of them are meant to be below golden retriever tier. It’s a species of toadlines.
>>4418993I'm still upset that he let his husky run into traffic like thatIf that happened to my dog I would never forgive myself
>>4419001The retard literally told people irl he’d never let a husky off leash too. Kind of a hypocrite desu.
>>4419001i talked with him in the past and he told me a different story... i feel like you're just a dumb LARPing faggot
>>4418733>EeveeThis isn't the software developer that goes by @eevee is it? Because that guy is also a zoophile.
>>4419043do they own an aussie and/or mal and they from some german country? cause if the answer is yes, then it's them.
>>4419043do their own an aussie and/or mal and they from some german country? cause if the answer is yes, then it's them.
>>4419024you dont want to tell the real story on /an/ because they might freak out over which dog it is
>>4419058you heard me
>>4419051Oh, no, the zoophile eevee is an American tranny.
Question for /dog/. >>4419076
>>4419077We have enough breeds already.
I should have named her Stihl, she likes to eat trees.
>>4419153Is it ok for her teeth to do that?
>>4419155It's like dent-sticks, keeps them nice and clean. Not so good for the tree though.
>>4419153honorary heathershe pulled up my fucking apple tree mere months after it was planted>>4418913i want a husky like that. brown eyed huskies are olev.
>>4419174>>4419172>be dog>destroy everything
>>4419175>be dog>destroy everythingthe tree was nothing. i gave up playing guitar because she looked bothered by the noise and i'm a loud toob amp snob (mesa/boogie or nuttin).
>>4419176>giving up a hobby because your dog is mildly annoyed I thought “dog wife” was a joke
Not having to chase him around for 30 minutes was great while it lasted. -_-
>>4419236"oh, you want me to eat that shit you threw in the dirt? lmao"
>>4419236He has extremely comedic ears.
>>4419174Ooh that's tough, this wasn't any special kind of tree>>4419175Only targeted destruction
>>4419252He doesnt even eat them out of my hand anymore! :_[ He will play fetch maybe 5-8 times and then start refusing treats. I think I will need to fix that behavior in him actually.
>>4419257Maybe he's just tired of treats. What else do you give him? How many kinds/flavors of rewards do you have?
>>4419266That's a good idea. Usually he's happy with a nice bite of his standard kibble. He loves freeze dried liver(only a handful of pieces a day) and this freeze dried kibble I got him for treats. The freeze dried stuff is expensive, but he's worth it. :)
>>4419270If you only buy your dog healthy food, buy them junk food treats. They'll go nuts.
>>4419274He goes crazy over his cheese bits, but I reserve it for important things like recall. I got him to basicallg poop on command and then run back with inside straight to the fridge for his cheese bite lol.
>>4419236Man, my current GSD woulda been on those treats like a fly on shit. He thinks his regular kibble is a 10/10 treat, the moment your hand goes near the treat pouch, he's watching and waiting.My late GSD once went on a week-long hunger strike because I ran out of yoghurt to use as a topper. If he wasn't hungry, he'd turn his nose up at everything and anything under the sun, including cheese, hotdogs, shredded chicken, dog roll, and steak.
>>4417454For the most part. Some things will remind you of them, and it will come back in a flash. But it gets better, if only a little at a time.>t. lost mine and my grandma's dog within months of each other two years ago
>>4419315He is ALWAYS hungry except when we play fetch. That's why I think I need to correct the behavior, or at leasf create a distinction between us playing and him doing his job of retrieving. Do you have any pics to share? We could use another chad shep dog on here. :)
>>4419364I've been on and off /an/ for years haha. He's not a new face, but I'm uncertain if people will remember him.
>>4419386Dang, 2 dogs! I always ponder the idea, but Leo is my first dog, so I figure I will wait at until he is atleast out of adolescence to start looking for a saluki. Yes I am the saluki poster if anyone remembers... How did you know it was time for your second dog?I love taking and sharing pictures of this dude so much, so I have no cares about being a relatively new poster on /an/.Copped this banger tonight.
>>4419386>the face a dog makes when they have a boner
>>4419448Before the old fellow passed, it was three dogs. I'm on a wait-list for a new pup about mid-year, so as long as the old Akita-mix doesn't pass unexpectedly (he's coming up 11 in March) I'll be back to three.
>>4419457>Three intact male dogs>2 GSDsYjk
>>4419461Not possible, they would kill each other.
>>4419461Nah, no reason to keep 3 intact dogs if I'm not breeding them. Also mandatory annual dog registration here is $120 for an intact dog, and $60 for an altered dog, so they are/were all neutered.
>>4419174brown eyed huskies are disgusting>>4419467imagine being poor
>>4419473>brown eyed huskies are disgusting
>>4419457Wow. I did not know male akitas got in the 80lb range. Was he bigger than your GSDs? I hate to ask twice, but I am really curious about your decision to take on multiple dogs. Does the responsibility double, or is it a little easier because you already have one pooch? I've only had my dog since last october, but I already feel the urge(naive?) to get another.I just want to state how thankful I am to be able to have such a beautiful animal in my possession.
>>4417079what is it
>>4419495Big booty ho, chewing a blanket covered toe.
>>4419483yeah look at that, they look so fucking generic, like every other dog. imagine how much hotter that photo could be with a blue husko.>>4419484no it doesn't double (except the cost of vet + food + toys). my life became easier when i got a second dog because they occupy each other when my company is forcing me to work insane hours before a release, but now if i want to travel anywhere, it's harder to find someone who wants to dog sit two dogs while i'm away.
>>4419484He's half Shiba Inu, so he's only about 50lbs.Anyway, I was only skim-reading this thread, missed the question the first time. I personally follow a succession plan and get a new dog roughly every 4-7 years or thereabouts, dependent on my extant dogs.The thing about getting a second dog is that your established dogs should ideally be reasonably well trained before you take that step, and you need to keep in mind that owning two dogs is inexplicably three times the work of one dog, so you'll need to have the time and energy to put into a second dog.
>>4419503>>4419500Ohhh can we have a 50+ post "discussion" on how much work it is to have a second dog?
>>4419532I mean, the "it's like three dogs" thing is more something I've heard repeated by several sources, it wasn't my own experience.I'm worked from a flawed data set, personally, though. My late GSD was just a really difficult dog. He had a bad temperament and poor health, so when the second dog came along he was always something of a shadow, an afterthought in the wake of the enormity of that shitty old GSD. Like, I'm not even kidding, keeping him stable cost $15k a year in medication and he was on 21 pills a day, but his quality of life was good so I kept him going. In the end, it wasn't one of his chronic conditions that did him in when he was 13, it was a rapidly-progressing cancer.My younger GSD + the Akita mix are not equivalent to the amount of work my older GSD required by his lonesome, so my idea of the amount of work any given dog requires has always been skewed. Any singular dog that isn't a full-time job in and of itself is easy as far as I'm concerned.
>>4419532no, nice booty tho.
>>4419550Where did you get your first boy? It sounds like you loved him more than anything in the world. it makes me a little emotional reading what you went through.>>4419552Ty. I give him butt scratches and pats many times a day. It is mostly the angle, but I will continue posting seductive pictures of him if you try to convince me a second dog is worth getting sooner than later. I really want a saluki, and I think the closest breeder is in my state, so not too far.
>>4419552I feel like I need to make it completely clear that my response to you is a joke. Don't get your hopes up too much.
Hello dog experts! What does it mean when you dog tries to steal bloodied menstrual pads like they're shoes? Is it just tasty like salt to the little bastard, or is it a sign that they hate you?
>>4419562I got him from a reasonably well-reviewed breeder. It was weird, he seemed to develop just about every problem a GSD can short of things that would actually kill him. Recurring bursitis in both hocks, hip dysplasia in both hips, severe elbow dysplasia in both elbows, grass allergy severe enough he'd chew his feet raw half the year, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, small intestinal dysbiosis, cobalamin deficiency, bacteria pyoderma in both back feet with draining tracts from his knees that lasted 10 months and then cleared up, non-healing perianal fistulas, he went totally deaf when he was about 11. He bit me every day for the first four years I owned him. It was something between a lack of bite inhibition and a game to him, and annoying as shit. He had no food drive to speak of, no toy drive, the only thing he found rewarding was latching onto people's arms. Feeding him was a massive pain because he only ate novel foods, wouldn't touch anything presented to him twice in a row, so I was eventually rotating through five different open bags of food with a different one each meal. Each time I finished a bag, I'd have to get a new brand/flavour, but he couldn't eat anything higher than 4% fibre which eliminates half of all kibbles.Goddamn, I did love that old dog though. I would've done anything and everything for him, and I'd do it all over again, too. He turned out a real sweet dog once I got him to stop biting me and finally housebroke him. He was two years old before I had him reliably housebroken. My second GSD was 12 weeks old by the time he was reliably housebroken. No matter how consistent I was, he was stubborn as a fucking mule.
>>4419570Oh I don't care about your dog, GSDs are not my type, especially the ones with that weird black mask that yours has.And if they would be, ZV has lots of content to satisfy my needs. I wouldn't stoop so low to beg some faggots on an imageboard for suggestive photos of their dogs.
>>4419562Advantages of having two dogs:>Double the snuggles and love from your furry companions.>The well-trained older dog can serve as a role model and helper for the new dog, helping them learn how to interact with the world and build confidence.>A bit morbid, but if one dies you'll have the other one to provide you companion and help grieving.If you have multiple dogs and one is a hyper fuck and the other is a chill dude, you can go hiking with the hyper fuck and take the chill one with you when going out with friends.Disadvantages of having two dogs:>Increased financial expenses, as you will need to budget for two dogs' food, veterinary care, grooming, and other needs.>Finding someone to watch both dogs can be difficult, and finding one person to watch both or two people where each will watch one can be even harder.>There is a potential for bad habits to spread between the dogs, so it's important to address any issues quickly.>If you're unlucky and the two dogs end up not liking each other, they may not entertain/play with each other when you're busy.>It's a lot harder to move with two dogs and activities as simple as going on a walk are harder with two dogs. If you wanna travel or plan to move around, don't get another dog. But if you're happy with your current living situation and traveling is not important, then ignore this point.If you let them sleep in your bed, expect to barely have any space for yourself if you have multiple dogs.Tbh to me it sounds like you really want to get a second dog, and you're already convinced about getting one but you just want some faggots to validate your choices even more, so you won't feel as bad if getting a second dogs ends up being too much work.
>>4419495My foot, she's laying on my leg>>4419592Sounds like any gsd owners nightmare, I hope you have better luck with your future puppy.
It's finally happening bros. I pick up my new puppy February 11th
>>4419704Nice, post some photos of your future dog husband/wife
Is anyone here using gabapentin to treat their dog's anxiety? My vet recommended 1x300mg for a 10kg dog and i'm worried that's a too high of a dose, since a human adult starts with that dose.
>>4419153Does she pull them up by the root? If so, I might have some work for her. Is fish cakes an okay payment?
>>4419716Well, your dog certainly won't be anxious with that dosage, that's for sure
I have a 100lb Rhodesian Ridgeback female, 1 year old. Half acre yard. I need to fence it in completely. However the cost is around $3000. Until I can come up with the funds, I'm wondering if anyone here has had success with the underground electric fence. My pup is easily trainable, and does great with the shock collar.
>>4419592Wow, that's intense. I'm sure you knew he was an extreme case, but I would have been hesitant to get another dog after all that.>>4419716Your dog soon.>>4419627I just want to hear non ai generated opinions about it. I'm a long ways off from even considering another dog. I'll be sure to shake my fist at this mongolian basket weaving forum if I get two dogs and it doesn't work out well.>>4419737Fluffy paws must be pet!>>4419621Oh, sweet.
>my dog is in heat again>she comes to me to be petted but as soon as I do she puts her tail in mating position.>she is more than eleven years old and has never had a mateIs it wrong for my dog to die a virgin like her owner?
>>4419814You can solve both issues with a single stroke.
>>4419814h... how large is this dog?
>>4419814how is this the first time you've thought about this when your dog is 11 years old
>>4419814One extra germ back there could cause fatal pyometraYou should get her spayed. Pyo could happen for no reason anyways.
>>4419726She only cuts them down unfortunately>>441981411 is a little old to be having puppies, plenty of dogs have had them at that age, but there's more complications.
>>4419794>Wow, that's intense. I'm sure you knew he was an extreme case, but I would have been hesitant to get another dog after all that.Well, I did get the Akita mix in between the two GSDs, just to shake things up. I guess I just knew that it would be statistically unlikely to get two dogs that unhealthy and temperamentally unsound in a row without going looking for them deliberately.>>4419628>Sounds like any gsd owners nightmare, I hope you have better luck with your future puppy.I probably will. I was just shit out of luck with my old man. My younger GSD, coming up 4, is in good health, although I did switch breeders to someone I vetted more thoroughly for him. I guess you've always gotta be prepared in the back of your mind for "What if something goes wrong..." but if you let that stop you, you'll just never have a dog at all. My upcoming pup is coming from the same person, so it should be fine.
>>4419814at 11 years of age every heat is a 1 in 4 chance your dog will get pyo and die. spay her NOW!
>>4419886>>4419913Holy shit, I didn't know that. I'll read about it.Thanks.
>>4419929spaying a dog at 11 years old for no reason is insane, the surgery is more likely to kill her
>>4419794>just want to hear non ai generated opinions about it.Bitch please, that wasn't AI generated. I just used quillbot to rephrase my ESL sentences.>>4419814There's a very easy solution to that... just clean yourself very well and her cookie before you do anything with her to reduce the risk of pyo, and maybe even use a condom if you plan on filling her up.>>4419930The absolute state of the retarded moralfaggots in this thread... putting your dog through an unnecessary surgery cause they been brain washed by bob barker.
>>4419886I can't help but assume this is a shitpost for how fucking absurd this soundsYet I've heard people say shit like this verbatim while completely seriousALL IT TAKES IS ONE MICROBE AND YOUR DOG WILL DIE, CARVE EM UP DOCl m a o
>>4419945Cause it is, it's a very specific bacteria and it only happens in very specific conditions. Also some breeds have a very low chance of getting pyo in their lifetime. And the number from some of the papers are skewed by shitty owners, my vet has never seen any cases of pyo since she started practicing.
>>4419930>the surgery is more likely to kill herYou should go to an actual veterinary hospital then. Old dogs dying in surgery is from lazy shit anesthesiologists that always go heavier on the anesthesia than they need to just to be safe, and it's quicker than dosing and then checking for a response. One of those clinic fags almost killed my YOUNG dog for fucks sakes. Never went there again and they said there was nothing they could do about my dog continuously collapsing and being totally out of it with a heart rate struggling to stay high enough... 12 hours later. At a better vet hospital he bounced back after every surgery.
>>4419944why would semen cause pyo, just let her lick herself clean and her body will eradicate the restDogs would not survive as a species if creampies had decent odds of spawning infection
>>4419947>very specific conditionslike what? Genuinely asking now, I think surgery is wack as a preventative measure but if there's general things that create environments for that specific bacteria which can be avoided, that's good info to have on hand
>>4419951It's something that could only happen if the bitch or dog was not fertile enough to start a pregnancy. Infertile semen causes pyo because it doesn't start the pregnancy process that increases blood flow to the uterus. A "cold" uterus, especially an old one, just (tries to) expel anything in there, but can't because the uterine lining hasn't been shed in a decade, and then closes up with a bacterial culture medium and inevitably, bacteria, all in a thickened organ that receives less attention from the immune system. As an 11 year old virgin, it's possible the uterus is so fucked up they will never conceive and any mating will drastically increase their pyo risk from 25% to 50-70%.Dogs evolved to get pregnant at least once every couple years for their entire life. They don't shed the uterine otherwise. Cats have the same issue, but way worse because they are extremely prolific breeders (2-4 litters a year vs dogs 1 to 2). I believe breed differences come from some primitive and large breeds only having 1 litter a year so reproductive disorders are slower to come on. At 11 there's no way your dog is safely, happily having puppies even though you're definitely selecting for lifespan so just spay them. At least go halfway with an ovary sparing spay. The uterus is a ticking timebomb.
>>4419952It's not "very specific", it's pretty much any bacteria capable of causing infection, and an old uterus with a thickened or cystic lining, since it can not expel its contents and the thickened cystic tissue hampers immune activity. Hyper-fertile breeds are most prone to it because they have more heat cycles that thicken the uterus each go around. The more hormonally dramatic their heats are the more severe the changes are with each heat and the higher their risk of pyometra. A fruitless mating means the dog then has a culture medium inside of them. Moisture with sugars and nutrients that were meant to keep sperm alive. And they can't expel it, so the inevitably bacteria will grow in there and cause an infected uterus without the immune system being able to do shit about it. Google "pyometra uterus" to get an idea of what happens.Full or ovary sparing spay, now. The longer you wait the worse all of your options get. Spays to fix pyo are far more likely to kill your dog than a regular surgery. Imagine rolling a four sided die every time your dog goes into heat, that says "LIVE-LIVE-LIVE-DIE". That's what you're doing.
>>4419952It's kinda hard to take preventive measures, except letting them have puppies every 3-4 years and if you engage in bedroom activities, make sure you're both very clean.The issue is caused by the thickening of the uterine wall after each cycle that didn't result in pregnancy, since they don't shed it like humans do + immune system is inhibited in that area during estrus so it doesn't kill the "foreign material" aka cum (but it also doesn't kill the bacteria...). Random uterine polyps can also increase this risk, but again that's not something you can easily prevent.Failed matings also increase the risks, so if you wanna breed your dog at and older age, go for artificial breeding in a sterile environment.>>4419957No it's not any kind of bacteria, almost every case of pyo is caused by e.coliAnd the 25% statistic you keep quoting is still fucking bullshit.
>>4419957You sound like the dogfucker eeveefaggot... which would make sense cause your advice sucks ass again. Remember kids, this cunt caused the death of an anon's dog cause he was telling them how good bravecto is and that he should get some for their dog. Oh and he also recommended to give your dogs old extension cords so they can play with them.Oh and use vibrating toothbrushes on your dog lmao.
>>4419957>And the 25% statistic you keep quoting is still fucking bullshit.https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23279535/n all breeds, the overall proportion of the bitches that developed disease by 10 years of age was for pyometra 19%, MTs 13%, and either or both of two diseases 30%.https://vethelpdirect.com/vetblog/2020/10/06/is-my-dog-at-risk-of-a-pyometra/Pyometra literally means ‘pus in the uterus’. It occurs in about 25% of unspayed female dogs before the age of 10.Is Pyometra a Life or Death Situation?Yes. -Joe Dunne BVMedSci (hons), BVM BVS (hons), MRCVS19 or 25%.... bullshit factor is low.A dog that is not being bred should have a full or ovary sparing spay (depending on breed-specific MT/OC/HD/various autoimmune and cancer risk)
>>4419965>ovary sparing spayremember, only dog fuckers get ovary sparing spays
>>4419964No YOU sound like dogfriend eeveechad...!I'm not totally defending that retarded collie fag but the anon who killed his dog was 100% at fault for giving his dog weird drugs without doing research or being a vet, and 100% a retard judging by his subsequent schizo zoofag meltdown. Maybe that dog was actually saved from a worse fate.>>4419968Or people who know that pyo is a risk, but have a breed that is also at risk of bone and joint/autoimmune/cancer issues if they're spayed, like any physically active dog, huskies, many collie breeds, healthier shepherds ie mals, etc>Spay ur dog>he's a moralfag>no he's a dogfugger :DDD FUG
>>4419970>worse fatebeing a dogwife is not a "worse fate" moralfaggot. being a dogwife means that she gets treated like a human being and she gets help with any sexual frustrations
>>4419980dogs don't have sexual frustrations
>>4419980>she gets treated like a human beingAnon, fuck your dog if you will, but do not gaslight yourself into thinking that it's a human.A dog is a dog, and it sees, feels, and processes the world through the lenses of a dog.One needs to keep that in mind and treat it with respect, remembering that it's its own being but that it also depends on you.It is the owner that chooses where it goes, what it does, what it eats, if it goes to the vet, etc. The dog might have the ability to agree or disagree in its own way, but the power is absolutely in your hands. It is not a relationship between equals, at all.It is under your custody.
>>4420009To be fair, this is how over half the world treats women, and what he’s talking about is more common among third worlders than not.
>>4420009why argue with the amoral? morals are not learned or prescribed like ethics. evil and good are innate. you are a hylic or you are a psychic. not everyone can be saved - the belief that they can has only encouraged evil to hide and propagate itself.
>>4420010>and what he’s talking about is more common among third worlders than not.Treating a dog like a human?I live in Brazil and I've never witnessed that.Dogs tend to be treated like dogs, at least around here where I'm from.At most I've seen people treating them like they are babies, which is hardly what I'd call "treated like a human".Unless you mean the fucking, if so, that's more people using the animals for their own pleasure. Very common in less urbanized area.I'm pretty sure my dad partook of some donkey pussy in his adolescence, given his rural background.>>4420013I'm expecting a discussion, so I guess it's less arguing and more preaching.And my own life experiences lead me to believe that "evil and good are innate" is not such a binary thing as your statement makes it sound like.People are born with certain proclivities and bents, yes, but they can both choose and be influenced towards or away those proclivities. A person born without an affinity for something can also be influenced by external factors to go a certain way.Context matters a lot for humans. I guess it has something to do with how adaptable we are/our brain plasticity or something, I don't know.> not everyone can be savedThis, on the other hand, I agree. Sometimes a person is just too far gone.Where is that line? I have no idea.I guess that's yet another one of life's challenges.
>>4420019>I'm expecting a discussionI'm NOT expecting a discussion*
>>4420019I mean any fucking of them. Whether it’s romantic or masturbation, i don’t think the ratio differs from men who fuck women. Men are men. However the animals clearly aren’t set up for it and it’s degenerate behavior that should be wiped from the face of the earth. Like eating each others shit clearly isn’t a good thing for out species either, so it’s natural to abhor it even if they aren’t hurting anyone and make sure to cook the shit first. Survival of the fittest makes no exceptions.
>>4419991Yeah they do, but society brainwashed you to believe that they don't. Why do you think males hump everything and some females flag their owner constantly when in heat? Animals aren't your fucking babies, they're fully functional mammals with sexual hormones and shit.>>4420009Sounds like being married lmao>>4420029>However the animals clearly aren’t set up for it and it’s degenerate behavior that should be wiped from the face of the earth.So we starting with farmer, show breeding, and industrial farmers? How is me jerking my dog off any different than a farmer doing so? Or my fingering a female vs a farmer inseminating a female and then stimulating them so they're "more fertile"?
>>4420051Morality is about instincts and darwinian fitness. So yeah it’s different. You will die out or be purged, either or.
>>4420065>You will die outZoos have been a thing since the start of humanity, I don't think we'll ever die out, unless we reach singularity. There will always be people interested in animals and farmers, and there will always be one weird one that gets curious about their animals.And pet ownership is not dying our anytime soon, and in a society where the rate loneliness is going up exponentialy, the ammount of zoos will also go up, just like the amount of faggots an trannies.
>>4420068It’s less common now than ever and will be eradicated come the surveillance stage and end of the fallacy of “human rights”. It’s really stupidly easy to get rid of large pets too so the only remaining supply is tightly controlled.
>>4420079>It’s less common now than ever. anecdotally the zoo forums are more active than ever and the amount of open zoos on twitter is increasing every moment.>come the surveillance stage and end of the fallacy of “human rights”By then we'll have worse issues than worrying about people fucking dogs and it's morality. We're all gonna be slaves to fucking corpos and shitty govs.
>>4420085That ear looks photoshopped. What are you hiding?
>>4420104It flips back all the time.
I'm fostering an elderly relative's dog until we can find the dog a new owner. My relative has dementia and probably doesn't even know the dog exists. Today he escaped and 10 minutes later he came back unscathed. Should I just let him wander like a stray cat? He probably has fun and it's not like he's a danger to anyone, he's a very tiny Chihuahua mutt thing with no aggression in him. Am I crazy? This seems like a fine idea. He's old as hell and if he dies out there, I don't know it just doesn't seem like a big deal. Maybe it's a better death than waiting for his heart disease to kill him. Will I get in trouble if I do this? I think he's chipped.
>>4419968I thought anything that removes the uterus interferes with dogfuckingAnd do they even go into regular heats with just ovaries?t. clueless about biology
>>4420106Whyd you photoshop a dick on your dog's back? Seems kinda sus.
>>4420124yup, there is no difference heat wise between an intact dog or one which got an OSS. Because of this, vets have to be very careful not to shorten the vaginal canal, cause male dogs may still breed them and if the vaginal canal is shortened, it could lead to a rupture.so if you're a dogfucker, OSS is the perfect procedure. removes the risk of a fatal infection if you're not careful, but the vaginal canal will not atrophy due to the periodical stimulation by the hormones, and the dog will still have sexual urges.
>>4420124also contrary to popular incel opinion, the cervix is never penetrated during mating in dogs and humans, hence the uterus is not needed (afaik in pigs the corkscrew penis can penetrate the cervix, and with horse the flare is perfectly shaped so that when pushed against the cervix, it's able to inject the sperm directly into the uterus)
>>4420134>Spay your dog you're a dogfucker>Don't spay your dog you're a dogfuckerWhat if I just respect canine women and care about their health
>>4420132Kek. She’s a Rhodesian Dickback
>>4420142>respect canine woman so do I, there's nothing wrong with being zooromantic
>>4420147Yah but your dog is dead
Any muzzle recommendations? I wish it didn't have to come to this but my dog needs one.
>>4420160My dog part 2
>>4420152I'm not eeveefaggot
>Fixing your dog? More like breaking your dog. HA! :(
>>4420175There's nothing to fix about them. Dogs are perfect the way nature created them (except pitbulls).And if nature doesn't want us to do cross-species, why are dog vulvas so aesthetically pleasing while humans have flappy meats with a vaginal canal which has 10% of the muscles a dog or horse has.
happy white girl wednesday from my favorite white girl
>>4420085Extra long legs to chase down fast toddlers
>>4420192wow i used to be a zoo but you're so annoying i just called the vet hospital, scheduled my girl to be spayed, and made a tindr profile.
>>4420210keep LARPing, nobody believes you anyway. and if you'd do something like that because of a faggot on an imageboard, you were never a true zoo anyway, so it's better for your dog to be spayed than to be abused by a manchild like you.
>>4420210You did good. That poor girl won't get abused by your fat incel neckbeard micropenis anymore.
>>4420211>>4420206why the gentle leader?
>>4420206Damn she's got a strong profile. Absolutely no smush in that face.
>>4420223i've been working with her since she was a puppy and she refuses to stop pulling, shes only 1 year old and everything is still very exciting to her and if she gets a whiff of something or sees another dog or wants go for a run she pulls like an oxive tried the stopping method and the turning around method and other harnesses and leashes don't seem to work the only thing i haven't tried is a pinch collar but i hear that can mess your dog up psychologically also on the plus side shes still very much in training and people mistake it for a muzzle and usually don't bother us
>>4420210Learn how to troll kiddo.
>>4420225Gentle leaders mess them up physically Consoder: cheese bites.
>>4420210Can I have her uterus after it's taken out so I can use it as a Fleshlight for a few days? ty
>>4420147zooromantic is the gigachad territory
>>4420163Bro you might want to check on him I think he's melting
>>4420211She looks so cute and happyMan I fuckin love seeing happy dogs, my whole day improves.
>>4420239Not that anon, but what are cheese bites in this context?
>>4420239we use treats, they work (kinda) but she goes right back to pulling>>4420286thank you shes a very happy excitable pup>>4420289shes a german shepherd, i got her from a farm that raises white german shepherds
>>4420224i love her profile, its so regal imo
>>4420337I really like her yellow eyes. My gsd pulls like a mofo as well. He knows heel and does a perfect job in familiar and low distraction environments. He will do left turns, right turns, and stop sits really well.When he wants to sniff something, go somewhere, or chase something he is a stubborn and determined puller. Using a harness with a front loop works okay, but I hate walking him with one because leash management is annoying.I think the idea is to keep practicing it a lot, and when they become adult dogs they'll gain that extra focus needed to stay heeled well.The other idea I've heard, but haven't figured out yet is to make heeling a fun game for them because it's usually such a boring thing for them to do.
>>4420329>shes a german shepherd, i got her from a farm that raises white german shepherdsthats unfortunate. white german shepherds have fucked genetics :/beautiful girl tho, i would get one if it didnt carry that risk
why are his cheeks and jaw so well defined? im jealous
>>4417079Hello all, I’m considering getting a sixish month old hound dog that I gave to the pound that was a dump at my work. I’ve had a couple dogs growing up and have a relatively large house and yard. However I have a cat and my fiancé is super nervous about said dog going after the cat. Is it too late to start training?
>>4420383Pic related, I’m Thinking of getting the one on the right
>>4420371they don't actually that's a myth you can google that they're just as healthy as any other colored german shepherd its just a recessive masking gene also:"In fact, the founder of the German Shepherd as a recognized breed, Max Von Stephanitz rebuked this claim himself. In his book The German Shepherd Dog in Word and Picture, published in 1923, he states: “The coloring of the dog has no significance whatsoever for service.”
>>4420383Should be young enough to still be trainable. Just dont leave them alone together for a few months, obviously.
>>4420347thank you!she knows turns well too, and to stop and focus but being only a year old everything is still VERY exciting and new to her so she is a hard pullershes amazing off leash and just a darlingi'm practicing every time i take her outside for a walk i'm doing it every time now when before it was off and on but she doesn't really seem to be picking it up
>>4420378Shadow is back and he has become a professional service dog. Based.>defined jawlineDefinitely from crunching on celery.
>>4420385Dunno brah. Im gonna take my trainer's word for it.>>4420391>celeryOh he loves it now, so it might begonna dump a few more pics and disappear again
>>4420391bye leo ^^
>>4420393your trainer doesn't know what they're talking about then when it comes to white shepherds. it's an outdated idea that they're unhealthy because in SOME OTHER BREEDS the white gene is associated with deafness and blindness, thats not the case in GSDshttps://germanshepherddoghq.com/the-white-german-shepherd/here's a website explaining the genetics behind white german shepherds. it's no different that why your dog is blacktheir only health issues is the same and standards like hip and elbow dysplasia
>>4420395Adios. Thanks for the cute update!
you have to bathe her a lot
>>4420386I have never had a hound and I’m fairly nervous, any advice on what I should do? Also if anyone wants a dog from the Northern Neck of VA here’s at least one.
>>4420410Just remember. You either hound the hound or the hound hounds you.
>>4420395Oh no, he looks like a husky
>>4418714Depends on the dog afaik. If dog is small breed, 1 year. If it's big, 1.5 years or 2 years
>>4418719i mean you can get one, just keep in mind your dig us your new main hobby for a year
>>4420225If you want to solve the pulling issue you need to use corrective punishments, not nagging discomfort. Even if you buy a pinch collar it will only work temporarily if you don't use it properly, however you can fix leash pulling in just a few weeks of focused loose leash walking training. My girl is only 10 months old, she doesn't pull on the leash any more because I don't tolerate it, we're both better off for it because i don't have to deal with the pulling any more and she doesn't need to wear the prong collar, it's a win win situation.
>>4420627What age did you feel comfortable starting the prong at? Any resources you can share on the methods you used?
>>4420225Luna was a puller when I got her at 6 months too, what I do is whenever she pulls I either stop and make her heel, or turn in a completely new direction, then switch back. Saw it on some animal channel on youtube, dunno the underlying logic behind it but she's not a big puller anymore.
Do you give your dog supplements?
Had to put dog down a couple days ago. Had him 17 years. Even though I was with him when try gave him the shot, I keep thinking he's just out of sight, then get disappointed when he's not there. I miss him a lot. He was my best friend. Now he's gone and he's not coming back. I'm never going to get to pet him again.
>>4419964I'm no dogfucker, but my dog gets a bravecto pill every spring. Prescribed by the vet. My cats get it too, but they get drops in their neck. Only once a year, though. Should I be worried for my pets?
>>4420713never listen to /an/never listen to 4chan...actually never listen to the entire internet
>>4420713But I give them bravecto because it was recommended by the vet. We live in an area with an extreme amount of ticks. They've been getting it for five years now, I think they're okay.
>>4420721Also, you have to have a prescription from a vet to get bravecto where I live, and the vets will only prescribe it once a year.
>>4420721listening to your vet is finei'm mostly trying to warn you about our resident autistic trolls (there's a whole bunch of them)
>>4420695I give her my dick
>>4420713No, if the vet prescribed it and you give them once a year, then it's fine.But some dogs have a genetic mutation which makes bravecto/ivermectin/etc toxic for them.The other issue is if you constantly give them bravecto, have you ever wondered why bravecto lasts 3 months vs the alternatives which only last 1 month? It's cause bravecto has 3x the dosage of the competitors, and if you give them constantly during the year, it will slowly kill the liver.
Good morning to all good boys and girls. Please enjoy one big celery chomp. Thank you, sirs.
>>4420627The shit dogfags will do over a minor annoyance…
>>4420775Having a big dog pulling and fighting you constantly is not a minor annoyance. It makes walks miserable, and at worst can be very dangerous.
>>4420780Do you weigh 70 poundsWalks, especially smooth walks where your tiny self feels in control the whole time, are not required. You can always train a dog correctly before struggling through a walk and angrily hurting your dog.
>>4420783It sounds like you have only ever owned chihuahuas.
>>44207862 husky mixes and a rottweilerAre GSDs actually stupid?
>>4420764I don't believe that counts.
>>4420789Lemme guess... husky x chihuaha, and rottweiler x dachshund. Do you have pictures I bet they look pretty funny.
>>4420797Why is it the first thing a dog abuser always goes to is "your dog must be small", post your dogs here on this dogfucker forum, maybe they can be rent free in a dogfuckers mind like eeveeYour brain or body must be small if you had to resort to animal torture because a 50-70 pound german shepherd pulling was dangerous. Remember you are not required to walk your dog every day immediately. You can and should train them on a long lead on your own property first.Why is it so many people can train their dogs not to pull but a german shepherd owner can't. Are german shepherds stupid or are their owners short tempered and expecting total slavery immediately?
>>4420799Bud, are you okay? I'm not even that guy. Maybe you need to take a little break from the internet and go walk your 3 dogs.
>>4420802I've noticed in my couple of months lurking /an/ that this place is schizo central hardcore.Not even talking about the dogfuckers necessarily, just in general really.
>>4420804It's crazy how humourless and bitter people have become everywhere. Why are you on here if you aren't having fun? Is this your only way to satiate your cortisol addiction? It doesn't bother me because I dont let it, but this place would be more fun if people just lightened up a bit.
>>4420806What in the goddamn is that
>>4420806>>4420804>>4420802Seethe dog abusers
>>4420806>>4420811Anon projecting hard, lel.
>>4420810A chihuahua lmao
>>4420732Thank you Anon, I've noticed them.
>>4420811I don't even use a prong. If you notice I was just saying that a big dog that pulls all over the place can make walks miserable to dangerous...
>>4420824There are no big dogs in /dog/. And as Larry Krohn said, if your dog doesn’t behave on walks… Don’t walk them! Train them at home first if it’s that bad. If you hurt or yell at the dog you may NEVER get all of their love back… remember you have a pet, you are not a cop with a k9…
>>4420767The genetic mutation, is it race based or can any type of dog have it? I have a Siberian Husky. Yeah, that's what our vet says too, bravecto is the real strong stuff. As I said, they only prescribe it once a year here(in Europe). Can you buy it over the counter in the states or other places?
>>4420828Okay, now that is funny. Maybe I was wrong about you. How new are you btw? Have you not seen Heather? She is a BIG(fat) dog.
>>4420830A big dog is over 80-100lbs. Nothing posted in this thread should be able to make a walk dangerous especially not an out of shape huskoid that’s 50% lard. And the point stands, if your dog doesn’t behave on walks stop walking them and start training them, correctly, WITHOUT abuse.
>>4420658Just watch a few videos on how to use a prong collar to stop leash pulling, it's a pretty simple concept>dog pulls>leash correction>Leash goes slack>dog gets treat/praiseYou need to have a basic foundation of training so your dog understands YES and NO.>>4420775A dog shouldn't be in public unless they can be calm, attentive and polite. Leash pulling is also the beginning of many bad behaviors including leash aggression. If you don't train your dog you are just lazy and inconsiderate.
>>4420847>dog disobeys>hit dog>dog obeys>reward dogA retard like you would ruin any good dogYou can train any dog without ever touching a “gangster” collar AKA prong collar. Positive works, so does an e collar, but never set ti be painful. There is never any reason to hurt a dog. It’s always bad GSD/BM owners who do this and then they cope later…
>>4420843From my experience I have found that to properly train a dog it needs to be done in many different places/scenarios/differing distractions, and when the dog is in different levels of excitement as well.Having your dog come to you in your house 100% of the time does not guarantee that it will come to you when it's chasing a bird or something like that.Isn't that fairly obvious?This kangaroo is going to be around 90-100lbs when he stops growing.
who is the best dog?
Went out with my new dog today
>>4420861Looks like a good way to totally fuck up your joints really fast
>>4420855>Having your dog come to you in your house 100% of the time does not guarantee that it will come to you when it's chasing a bird or something like that.How can your dog come to you outside if they can not come to you in the house first? On a walk if they can't do it in your yard? How will your dog understand leash pressure at a store, if they didn't understand it in your driveway first? It takes less than a week to teach them a heel in every situation. You can not just walk your dog and start hurting them every time you're annoyed.WATCH, and LEARNhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3c0i0aeThEQhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtgrUwkAy8EWatch everything he does with the dog.Prong collars are useless, and a form of animal abuse. They were created to hurt dogs, by people who want to hurt dogs, because a regular collar can not hurt them enough when they yank on the leash like they are trying to break their dogs neck. All you are doing is saying "just hit your dog if it does not listen". Stupid! You're lucky your dog is desperate to please if you did that. I have seen gentle natured dogs ruined forever, they never showed their owners love and some smarter dogs were even afraid of the leash. Once you RUIN a dog like that, you are done, a better owner than you has to build that dog back up to get their confidence and love back.
>>4420857All dogs are best bois.
>>4420869not those ones
>>4420868Bud, have you heard of a strawman before? I don't use a prong on my dog for the 8th time!>>4420869Based.
>>4420880I like the face colouring on this one.
>>4420880I wonder how many people went home with the wrong dog that day>Lassie, come!>>4420869You could walk into this house and leave with a husky and they wouldn't notice or careAnd neither would the owners
>>4420891That would be an absolute nightmare. I would superglue my leash to my hand and weld it shut on the dog hah.>>4420887Kind of like clown makeup.
>>4420700rip to your buddy
>>4420700Sorry for your loss. Occasionally I'll watch or read really sad things about dogs and just start tearing up and then I go and hug and kiss my dog 100 times.I know this is a little corny, but I believe when they say it is better to have loved and lost then to have not loved at all that it's very true.
>>4420869Why do so many huskies look retarded
>>4420911Dogs are goofy and husks have expressive eyes. Notice the eyeliner some wear.
>>4420891Not enough huskies for you? Here you go, bud.
>>4420923Check out this husky.
>>4420924Looks like it's in dire need of some de-shedding tools.
>>4420933Ohhh that's just its winter coat. It drops it eventually. You basically get a second dog with all the hair it sheds. Hell, I bet you could make enough yarn to knit a sweater!
Does the one drop rule apply for Pitbulls? You think it's ok to adopt a puppy which seems to possibly be 1/4 or 1/8th Pitbull?
>>4420936Dog fur isn't really the best to spin thread out of. Even the under wool from huskies have to be mixed with some sheeps wool when you card it. Then it will be easier to spin a thread and make some yarn.
>>4420829I'm also from europe and i can walk into any veterinary pharmacy and ask for bravecto and they won't ask for a prescription.> is it race based or can any type of dog have it?I think it's mostly dogs like collies and aussies which can be affected by that mutation>>4420869My dream is to have that many huskies in my life, so each day I can sleep with a different one.
>>4420959Interesting. I think when I start collecting my dog's hair I will do felting with it. Felting is quite satisfying woth all the stabbing you do, and the low stress nature of felted crafts.
>>4420963Haha, I can se how all the needle stabbing can be therapeutic. Spinning can be rather relaxing too, but carding is the best when you're already angry. Felted slippers and mittens are real nice. I mostly leave the fur out in the woods for the birds to build nests out of, but I gather some of it in bags too. It's so much. Maybe I'll build a new husky with it when Whiteboi goes off to run on the eternal tundra.
>>4420962I guess it depends on where in Europe you're at. Here in my country you need a prescription for almost anything, whether you're animal or human.
>>4420810the chihuahua's head is turned upwards, what you see as snout is an ear, and the dark "ear" is the snout
>>4420976The little felted portraits are such a nice thing to remember a good pet with. Some of the artists are extremely skilled at it.
>>4420850E collar isn't positive, it's just a more versatile version of the prong collar.
>>4421076E collars also have a higher potential for abuse. With a prong your arm will eventually get tired. You can press a button 1000 times in a day very easily.
>come home during lunch to walk dog>see garbage everywhere plus a huge chunk of his dog food eaten>left dog food container on top of tall trash bin bc it's heavy>dog normally never touches it>beat the crap out of dog and drag him around showing him all the trash and what he's done>beat him some more>clean everything>throw trash bin and food bin at him>put him in his punishment corner>leave>come back>he hasn't budged and nothing has been touchedsigh, he even yelped in pain, I've never had to beat him like this before.
Why do people severely abuse their dog for things that are clearly 100% their own fault?I'm sure those kind of people are just waiting and hoping for their dog to fuck up so they can feel power over something weaker than them. Sick.
I wonder if an e collar would feel good on your dick.
>>4421147I think that's a matter of taste.
Anyone elses dog prefer to sleep outside?My dog prefers to sleep on the couch balcony in -10-16c weather, is this normal? She goes into my bedroom whenever she see me get ready for bed, but for just napping she prefers the icy outdoors and im a little concerned she'll hurt herself, I keep a window open so she can hop in whenever she wants but that's not an ideal solution either since its's cold as fuck outside. It's a lil collie if that helps.
>>4421175Use a wireless rectal thermometer to monitor her body temps.
Have two puppies. One is sick, the other is not. Vet said to keep them completely separate for 10 days.I have been keeping one outside and one inside, but the one inside keeps shitting and pissing on my floors. I put down pads, she ignores and goes to shit in the kitchen. I take her outside to the yard, she stands by my feet until we go inside, and proceeds to piss on my bedroom floor.How do I potty train this little bitch if she refuses to use pads or do her business while leashed up?
>>4421289Wait it out with her outside and heavily reward her when she finally does the business.
>>4421007Those are really cute. Looks like real dogs. Not like those haunted cakes. I think I'll save a couple of bags of that thick under coat when spring comes.
The dog I was going to get puppies from had a seizure this morningShe's ok apparently but now I'm concerned about epilepsy or other hereditary things
>beat dog>behaves better
>post low effort bait>no (you)s
