What is the best way to stop my dog from barking?

Question by micsulli01: What is the best way to stop my dog from barking?
I got a 7 month old shepherd mix, who is a barker. I also have a 4 month old Husky/Lab mix. The shepherd likes to bark at the Husky when she has a toy that the shepherd wants, and if you tell the shepherd “NO Bark!” then she’ll bark at you!

What is a good way to train the dog not to bark in those situations?

Wanna see a lot of thumbs down??? If you can’t train it get rid of it or for your neighbors sake get it debarked.

Dog Pet Supplies – Why You Should Go Green For the Sake of Your Dog

If you’re looking for dog pet supplies, then have you considered eco friendly, natural care products? Whether you’re looking for dog shampoos, conditioners, spot removers or deodorizers, then know that there are “green” versions that not only do what they are supposed to i.e. clean your dog or get rid of it’s nasty smell, but come with a heap of other benefits.

Let’s take a look at why green and eco friendly is definitely the way to go when it comes to caring for your dog. Not only will you leave your dog looking, feeling and smelling fresh but you’ll also be doing it a world of good:

No Toxic Chemicals: You want your dog to be clean, but without risking it’s health. Unfortunately, many of the dog shampoos and conditioners that are readily available contain potentially harmful chemicals that can irritate your dogs skin. Sure, they do a good job of getting rid of any dirt, but they often go too far and end up removing too much of the oil in your dogs skin, resulting in irritation or a build up of flakiness. However, if you use good, “green” dog pet supplies, then you won’t have this problem. Eco-friendly products contain all natural ingredients that don’t irritate your dogs skin or cause any unnatural defects. Your dog will thank you for that more than you can appreciate.

Natural Fragrances: It’s all well and good leaving your dog smelling clean and fresh, but is it really so good when it comes out smelling unnaturally synthetic or too un-dog-like? Again, this is another problem with most of the readily available dog products on the market. After all, it is a dog at the end of the day. You don’t want it smelling of grime and urine, but at the time you don’t want it unnaturally clean. With eco friendly dog care products, not only do they actually care for your dogs coat and skin, but they leave it smelling naturally fresh. Would you rather have a nice fruity smelling dog, or a synthetic smelling dog that smells like hair spray?

Improved Health: If your dog suffers form skin conditions such as oily or flaky skin, then it may not be that you’re using bad products, it may be that you’re not using products at all. After all, can you imagine how we’d be if we didn’t regularly clean ourselves? Eco friendly dog products are likely to be exactly what your dog needs if it currently appears uncomfortable. They are also greatly effective for removing things like ticks and fleas, as well as stopping skin irritation.

Overall, “green” dog pet supplies far out way ordinary dog care products or not using products at all. If you want to leave your dog clean and smelling fresh, without damaging it’s health and well being, then eco friendly dog care products are the way to go. Give them a try, you’ll notice the difference.

Q&A: mixing flea meds?

Question by kill your television: mixing flea meds?
i recently took my dog to the groomers. his coat is quite thick and he has a bad flea problem. the owner of the pet salon said hed give the dog a flea med for like 12 bucks or so, and that the fleas would die when they bite.

so its been a week and the fleas are still there. they said to come back for more grooming and meds in a month, but i want to give my dog a flea bath right now. im going to call the groomer tomorrow and ask if flea shampoo conflicts with the med in any way, but i think hes just going to try to sell me more of his stuff(he never said what it was).

so my question is: do you think it’ll be ok to use flea shampoo on my dog, even though he supposedly has meds “in his blood”???

Question by ★★BZR★★: How hard is it to train a 4 month old pup to be a “hearing dog”???
Sometimes I like to occasionally browse through various craig’s list pet sections just to look at the read and look at the ‘free’ puppies and dogs that some people give away for no good reasons.

I see this person that is hearing impaired that wants to get rid of a 4 month old standard poodle puppy for not being calm!!

All puppies are hyper and love to play, I don’t think thats a good reason to give up on a puppy so soon.

Its it ‘smart’ of this person to attempt to train this puppy at home?

I thought that people that need hearing dogs can just get one from organizations that specially train puppies for this job, and the hearing impaired person gets the dog through medical insurance or something like that.

I think that she should get this puppy spayed first before she tries to get rid of her, so she won’t be used and a breeding dog, with a Labrador or whatever, so some byb can make ‘designer oodle’ puppies.

although, isn’t it bad to spay a puppy at four months though?
I feel so sad/worried for this puppy’s future. T:(

Shay R: Its wrong to breed mutts when there are tons and tons of ‘oodle” dogs/puppies being euthanized because their owners got rid of it because they were conned into believing that they are ‘hypoallergenic’, which isn’t true for any dog.
She should surrender the puppy to a Poodle Rescue and never mind about getting any money for her.
Lisa: I’ m referring to the people that give away their pets for ‘free’ like they are disposable.
Thats whats wrong with that.
No good reasons include something like, they’re tired of a family pet, and want to get a new puppy, but get rid of the adult dog first.

Answer by chriswswife
Well, this person, if they want this dog for a service animal should not be training at home but should go through CCI or some other organization… and honestly, if they can place this dog, then I’m glad because that puppy should have a home that loves it because it isn’t calm (for who it is)…
