Do dogs get headaches?
Asked by fortissimoadrian 8 years ago
One idea is to put a kennel inside our 12 x 24 storage shed, with a dog door to the outside. Then, fence in an area outside of the shed. The dog will be about 50 pounds, and can jump and dig.

I have six small dogs. I'm having problems with them going to the bathroom inside instead of going out to there dog yard we have for them. We have a doggie door for them. We leave the light on at night and even tarped a area in case it rains. They seem to only do it at night and not all the time. We moved into a new house and took out the carpet and put new floors in. After that they started. How can i fix this and save my floors? I'm a big animal lover , but this is driving me nuts. Thanks Jennifer

I know I am going to get responses to the fact that I should not be posting requests like the one I am about to post. I need help/ideas on how to block out next door dogs that are constantly digging holes under my cedar fence. I've spoken with owner of dogs but he refuses to do his part in helping me resolve the problem. I have my own ideas as to what I can do but I would like to see what ideas members of this forum can offer me. Thanks. AL.

What should I do...I want them to be able to play together. And grow together.

Does anyone has an explanation? My labrador is in perfect health; no balance problems; he leaps fences and is not timid in any way. A few years ago when we laid down slate floor tiles on the entire diner and kitchen area he seems worried about walking on the kitchen area and avoids it or approaches it very gingerly, bowing low as he does so; it's as if he perceives it as a deep hole . He will, however, totally forget about this fear if he can get to the cat's food but otherwise it is very hard coaxing him onto the tiles in the kitchen only. My friend's exterior landing and staircase has a mottled pattern; he just couldn't walk on it and refused to come down it; he had to be carried. So, none of this is a problem at all, but I'm just curious to see if anyone has encountered anything similar? Thanks.

It's not fleas just constantly scratching. The time of year don't matter.
I notices that my dogs recently started walking in a circle before they lay down. Why is that?

My office has about 5 acres of land, not fenced in. A neighbor across the street raises and breeds dogs. When I arrive at work in the morning, I am greeted by anywhere from 5 to 10 dogs. What can I do to run them away and keep them away? We do not have a dog here, but there is a cat that came with the property that we feed. Thank you for any help.

I have 3 dogs and it is a royal pain in my (2 surgeries on my back in 2 years) back to wash them. I see ads for a product that does that, but im sure its a combination of Baking Soda and some other items. Any ideas would be great.

http://hackaday.com/2010/12/11/kids-type-with-their-eyes-robot-arm-prints-their-words/ This post is a few days old. I posted a comment asking the same question on HAD, but I thought it may get more exposure here. If you've ever noticed, dogs pupils really reflect light, even visible light like from a cars headlights. I would think this system would be able to track a dog's eye movement as well. This would need to start out much simpler, to teach the animal to use the system. Perhaps give him 2 choices, in the form of recognizable icons. I am imagining a picture of a steak and a picture of a dog going for a walk. Eventually the dog might learn to recognize the symbols. Once this happens, the interface could be expanded to more choices. I dont know if it would be possible to teach english ( or any other spoken/written language) but maybe.

My sis has just had a baby, and me and the girlfriend are going to be looking after her at some point. The problem is, our terrier is a pretty dominant chap, and I'm rather worried about letting him near her. He is very keen to get to her, but I have had no experience of introducing dogs to babies so won't risk letting him near her without some plan of attack. He's a pleasant little fella, just very excitable.... Any ideas? Thanks!

Can someone give me instructions how to build a device for stopping dogs from barking. The sort that has sensors that detect barking and give of an annoying to dogs, innaudible to humans noise, so that the dog will learn that barking triggers an unpleasant sound and hopefully stop. Our neighbours dog is driving us nuts and we dont want to have to complain about them.

I recently moved into a rental home that has no grass, rocks only. My two large dogs are used to having a grass yard, so I am looking for a way to make them a raised bed-type grass area that I can deconstruct when I move in two years. I'm thinking a wood frame with a plywood bottom, fill it with topsoil then adding sod on top of that. The only problem is that I would like it to be fairly large, at least 25' X 25'. Any suggestions would be appreciated. (Sorry the photo is weird, it was taken through a screened porch.)

i'm looking to plant an herb garden in my yard, but my dogs are absolute rascals.the bed has a small cement ring around the base, so i'm not worried about them digging under, but i need a clever way to keep them from trampling the herbs. any suggestions? i'm dirt poor, so cheaper is better, but it's in the front yard, so i suppose it should look nice, too.

My dog had a spinal op,and was recovering nicely. I have polished floorboards that are an absolute nightmare for him to walk around on. The list of remedies I have tried are endless. Dog socks,boots,shoes,mats,balloons etc.I have spent a small fortune with no luck. We have non slip mats around but I can't cover the whole house in rubber mats. I've trimmed his nails short,and the fur between his toes,but I've noticed his paw pads are really dry. I'm trying to formulate something that I can put on his paws that has a tacky feel. I'm no scientist but I've wracked my brain to come up with a solution that is easy to make and not toxic. It has to be something that doesn't taste fantastic because he'll lick it off. As a sample I tried some tacky hair wax..which just gave him a little grip,but it's not what I'm looking for. I know beeswax is sticky,but i think it needs to be mixed with something.I had a feel of surfboard wax,but it didn't have enough tackiness for what I want.I know honey is sticky but don't think I want that all over my floor.Also pine sap is sticky too. I guess i'm looking for something that feels like those silicone non slip dots you can buy that is safe for animals? Any suggestions?

My dogs go on occasional barking sprees, which my neighbor hates. The dogs are short haired & hate water. A sprinkler would work great on them.
Hello, I have a wonderful neutered male, 2 year old Cavalier king charles named Bentley. Bentley Loves people, kids, other dogs, cats, everything and every one. Perhapes he has been a bit spoiled. He has been well socialized often taking dog park trips, took a socialization class as a pup.. we work on issues with a trainer as they come up.. he had been humping from time to time at the dog park so we were working through that. I love Bentley so much have wanted to add a second cavalier king charles for some time. We went meeting dogs and Bentley got on fine with them all on their territory and on neutral territory. We finally choose to go with an 8 week old female black and tan cavalier from the same breeder we got Bentley from but different parents (the dogs are actually co owned) They did fine on neutral territory but as soon as we got in the house Bentley was mad.. I have never seen him like that, Barking, snarling, at her. I separated them and have been trying to work things out with them gradually. It has only been a couple of days of course. He also tries to push her under him and hump her, but she wiggles out as a small 4 lb puppy will, and he gets annoyed about that too. I can tell him "SIT" and it seems to redirect him. I am so in love with my new girl who I have named Velvet, already, so I need to make things work out. Bentley seems fine with her when they go out and potty, or are just calm together, sometimes something will set him off though, like if she gets too comfy on my lap he will start growl barking at her and acting like he might nip her but doesn't actually do it. though she does have slobber on her after. If she moves to my husbands lap he goes over to him and does the same reaction. then I have to separate them. Toys.. forget it, he will not let her have her toys or his. If they are just walking around together they seem fine.. but he does not like her getting playful or too snuggely with us.. he also gets mad if he notices her mouthing. (teething pups of course require that training) it is hard not to have him notice as we are correcting her. I am trying to keep things equal, equal attention, when they are together (she is crated a lot for house training anyways) They potty together and both get a treat, teaching her sit if he is there and sits they both get a treat. Both get petted at the same time together, and when Velvet went to the vet today I took Bentley along. These were all tips from the trainer I go to. I just have never seen this sweet doggie boy of mine so bent out of shape at another living thing. I just want re assurance that others have been through this, and had it all work out in the end, and give me tips as to what worked for them! I keep reading mixed advice on what to do in this situation so I am not sure what to do. I am leashing them for interactions right now of course for safety reasons and I am of course only allowing closely supervised play. Velvet also has a safe play area that I gated off with an xpen, where her crate is. They are eating in the same room, But Bentley does not care much about food anyways, never had a food aggression problem there.

What's your favorite breed of dog? My favorite dog would probably be a Siberian Husky. Though I love all kinds of dogs, especially big dogs like German Shepherds and Alaskan Malamutes. I also like some smaller dogs like Australian Cattle Dogs and Beagles.

I'm hot and tired. I've wasted the past three years hunting down sites like this one. I print out reams of instructions for projects. I buy everything I need to make things. But there's never any time. Maybe I should have settled for just one dog. Two is a lot of work. Ya think?

I am thinking of moving to a warmer country ( SW France ) than England but I have a small pack of huskies that I would like to keep cool in the warmest weather. I was wondering if it is possible to use the solar energy available in abundance to provide an air cooling system for them. I realise that aircon normally requires a lot of electricity but I am only looking to keep a small space ( block built shelter of about maybe 7-800 cubic feet ) cool and hoped that this might be possible. Any ideas ?
