PUPPY GROWLING AT OLDER DOG DURING PLAY?
first of all,all puppys bite and growl.second, why did u broth such a young puppy to ur home.dont u know that in some states thats illegal.8 to 12 weeks'PPSSCS _:no, 7 weeks are not fineâ¢ Other QuestionsWhy does my dog continue to jump on my dog even though she yells and screams at him?The dog isn't focused on the yelling, but the energy behind the yelling. If she's angry, she is basically telling the dog to take over or keep doing what he's doing. She does need to assert herself. Try getting through to her or proving to her that what you're saying makes sense.------Does my dog have anxiety issues?crate training her will help and save your house. But mostly you need to get a trainer/behaviorist in to evaluate the situation and show you how to best deal with your dog's and your issues. Most likely you are creating the anxiety in her without knowing it by not showing her the right kind of leadership. Leaving the TV on while you are out will likely only do one thing, teach her that TV you gone. Consult a trainer------Why is my puppy humping other dogs?Male dogs do this to show dominance. He's trying to humiliate the other dog. You need to start teaching him that this behaviour is not okay. It'll progress to humping people.Getting him neutered might not solve the problem and for such a young dog, I wouldn't recommend it. When he starts to go into the position, correct him right away. Push him away from the dog or toy and firmly tell him "No." He'll try over and over to do it again, but you must correct him each and every time he tries. Do not get mad at him or frustrated because it'll prolong the process. You must be very patient.EDIT: Females hump things because they saw another dog hump something. They learned it through observing. No dog should just be ignored when they do this, otherwise they will always do it.------How can I get my dog to stop being so aggressive and biting?Unfortunately you did teach him this behavior was okay by not taking the bone when he would growl. He has learned that he can do this with anything and you will back off. Very dangerous behavior for any dog. I would take all of his toys away for now. Work with food. Practice telling him to leave it. If he doesn't he does not get the reward to eat it. It will only take a few times for him to get it. Move on with one toy at a time using the same technique. If it does not work you are doing something wrong and at that point hire a trainer for both of you------What should i do with my dog ??You need to put all your money towards dog classes instead of all the expensive items you have been buying. In the end it will be worth it and you won't be tired anymore. Some dogs and in his breed inparticularly have biting issues that can be relieved by training classes. Hope that helps.------My dog is out of control!?Of course he's out of control! He's a very, very, very, active breed and apparently isn't getting the training and exercise he needs. The dog needs obedience training and a TON of exercise and would probably do better in a home where he was going to agility or flyball or competitive frisbee than in a home that just wants a cute fuzzy to snuggle.This is exactly what they mean when they say certain breeds need a "job." Cattle dogs are one of those breeds. Without a proper training and a 'job' they are out of control and destructive dogs. With training and a job, they're awesome!So either, get started with some obedience training or turn the dog over to a rescue, preferably a cattle dog rescue, so they can find him an appropriate home.------Why is my dog so destructive?Number one the dog or any dog does not know right from wrong. Number 2 he is not getting enough exercise because when dogs are bored they chew and dig and make a mess of everything. I know, if I don't get my 2 beagles out and walk and play and train, they let me know. He needs more exercise and training.------Bringing home a shelter dog?I think you should take her for a little walk outside instead of going straight into the apartment. Give her a chance to do her business and smell some new smells, burn off a little energy and relax. Other than that, just give her plain dry food and water the first day, nothing rich to get her system upset. I'm sure everything will be fine... she just wants to feel secure and be loved and should be fine after a few days, once you get into a routine------I am having to move in with a good friend and she has 2 dogs and a few cats, I have 3 dogs and a cat, one of?Number one: Get them all fixed. It really works wonders on behavior.Number two: Get them acquainted before you move in. Give them all equal attention and introduce each of them slowly maybe in a room.Hope this helps!------Are ALL large dogs other than pitbulls capable of being aggressive with other dogs?I have two dogs one is a japanese chin mix and the other is a shephard mix. They will fight over a bone and most of the time it is my little 12lb. japanese chin that starts it. It can happen with any kind of dog. I wouldn't be worried, you just have to find out what will work for your dogs.------what would be a good dog?I wouldn't bring a dog into a home where your dad hits you. you need to go to the cops or something about that dont think that a dog will protect you from your dad he might but your dad would probably kill the dog if he bit him------How can I fix the relationship between me and my dog?I have a yorkie as well and he has always been kind of possessive with his toys, he likes to play but when he sees you reach for a toy he tries to run and grab it, I think that part is natural even if it did just start recently. With getting her to be her normal self around you what I would do is each day hand feed her a piece of lunch meat like turkey or ham, even cheese when she sees you have something good and your handing it to her like you did with the medicine she will forget all about that and be all over you again! Also if you still need to give her medicine I would put in in a hot dog or something and put it on the plate and feed it to her that way this way its not comming directly from your hand.Good luck!------Help with Sudden Dog Aggression?Are they all spayed and neutered? If not, that's the problem. A new dog coming into their house. Territorial problems. As for you being the pack leader, very good, but the dogs below you have to sort out who is next in line. You cannot sort it out for them. If the aggression is not that bad, let it happened. Eventually they will establish who is boss amount them. If you feel something bad might happen, I would highly suggest going to training classes with them to make them ALL "ask" you to perform their next action instead of take it upon themselves to act------How do your dogs get along?I had multiple dogs for the longest time before i moved. I had one who was very old, but still playful and we got a puppy that was very playful and energetic. The dogs got along fine, once the older one told her who was boss. The old one was a mixed breed that was born on my parents property and they couldnt sell him. We thought he was chocolate lab mix. The other one, the baby, was 1/2 yellow lab 1/2 unknown------Help with really jealous dog?First of all, dogs don't have the capacity to be jealous. This is a human emotion. What's going on with your dog is she's resource guarding, including you! Dogs are up for whatever is going so if you give your other dogs attention, she wants some too and as she considers she's the dominant one, over your other dogs, muscles in. With respect, right now I think the very last thing you need is to try to introduce yet another dog into your family unless yu get this one sorted out. This one needs to learn there are consequences for actions, especially unwanted actions/behaviour. Note the triggers for her bad behaviour, and avoid. If she growls when she's sitting with you, I suggest you remove that privilege. Time for her to learn who is the boss around your place, and that's not her.No to another dog at this moment. My opinion.------Dog vomiting for 2 weeks now...?I have some experience with intestinal obstructions, unfortunately. I can tell you it's unlikely plastic and rope toys are causing this, because the stool would most likely not be normal. In most cases of obstruction there is no regular bowel movement, but may be profuse and even bloody diarrhea, no food is kept down and a dog becomes very ill very quickly, refusing food or throwing it all up. If the xrays are clear, it's time to investigate further.If this started after his shot, that's where you start. It's advisable to go to a vet for a second opinion, and in this case finding a holistic vet who is more open to the idea of vaccine-related illnesses is probably your best option.If you haven't had any bloodwork done yet, now's the time. Hopefully this is a short term illness and not something more serious like EPI or congenital problems.Good luck!------Is it ok to feed your dog raw minced beef or should you cook it first?It is actually quite safe to feed a dog raw hamburger meat. It's good for their diet to incorporate some raw meat into their diet. In fact, many dog owners have implemented an all raw diet for their dogs. Even many people that own show dogs feed their dog's a raw meat recipe called "satin balls" days before a competition to help with weight gain. They can be fed as a supplement or as a staple diet. Raw meat aids in healthy coat, eyes, and increased energy output.------Fun activities to do with my dog?If your dog knows fetch, it's perfect- she'll do all the running!When I'm not feeling well enough for active playtime, I take my dog to a small dog run to play with other dogs. They wear her out and I all I have to do is observe to make sure the dogs are all playing nice. My dog still runs up to me while she's playing, to get a head pat or a tummy rub.They also make plastic balls that you can put her dry dog food (or very small treats in). She can bat it all over the house, and treats will drop out. It's a nice way to get energy out at meal time and to mentally stimulate her.------What do i need to bring my dog to Canada?You will need a valid rabies certificate in order for your dog to cross the border. It needs to state the type of dog, weight, date of vaccine, vet, etc, as well as how long it is valid for.As far as what to bring, water of course! Be careful with dog food. I had this taken away crossing into the U.S. from Canada as it contained meat product. You may want to check with cbsa prior to travelling to double check.
