Question by actormyk: HELP! I need some advice on restoring stained floors and potty training chihuahuas!?
When we moved into our little house, there were dark spots on the floor from pets that the previous owner was unable to curb or detect until the carpet was lifted. Now, we have a chihuahua of our own and he is doing the same thing. We pulled up a carpet and found some black stains where he’d been relieving himself when we weren’t around. 1) For dogowners, what can we do to prevent this? Our chihuahua is now 1 year and about 4 months old and I hope not too old to “learn new tricks.” and 2) For homeowners, is there anything we can do to get rid of the dark stains on the floors? This is a rental property and we don’t plan to stay here forever. We’d like to try to do something restorative to the floors so we don’t lose our deposit when the time comes.

Have you discussed this with the landlord? You might explain that because of the previous tennant, YOUr dog is attempting to mark His own territory around the smell of the previous dog. YOU can’t be held responsible for that.

Q&A: I need help finding a really good dog insurance?

Question by kay: I need help finding a really good dog insurance?
Im looking into getting and insurance plan for my dog because trips to the vet aren’t so cheap and since im not too familiar with this kind of stuff I need to know what are some good insurances?

Answer by Lorraine
I don’t know where you and as I am UK then it is no good promoting any UK ones.

However, a few things to remember.

1. That any existing condition will never be covered.

2. Insurance doesn’t cover general things like vaccinations etc, or any other voluntary procedures such as spaying / castration.

3. All insurances have an excess amount that is always payable by you. One of mine has a really high excess of £120 which means that the insurance is only good for covering high cost emergencies. However, as that dog has had an ongoing abscess from a piece of grass going in her throat which has cost £2500 then I am glad of it.

4. Always get a LIFE COVER one and not an annual. This means that should your dog develop something that needed medication for more than a year, or a condition that was going to be a concern for years to come, and those are frequent, then the insurance would still pay. With an annual, then it would only cover for 1 yr.

Need some help with clicker training?

Question by Anna: Need some help with clicker training?
My mother has seen my increased interest in training my dog for therapy work and bought me a dog-training clicker. She says that my aunt used a similar one to train her labrador and that it worked wonders on him.

One problem…I have no clue whatsoever how a little red plastic clicker can train my dog. She’s very food-orientated and I’m worried that once the treats are taken away, the training will go right out of her brain. I don’t see how adding a small clicking noise will make any more difference.

She knows sit fairly well, and down is so-so. Her name is Rosie and she’s about two years old. Sealyhams are some of the most stubborn dogs and definitely the most stubborn dog I’ve ever owned.

I need a good explaination about clicker training and any books or guides that can help me “clicker-train” my dog. Thanks!
She might be two, but she isn’t stupid. To be honest, she was a show dog and her breeder specifically told me not to teach her anything like “sit” or “lay down” because of the threat of doing those commands in the ring.
I’m actually glad that I didn’t teach her sit until a few months ago after she finished her championship – whenever she sees a cookie now she automatically sits, which wouldn’t be a good thing in the show ring.

Answer by a.lee,

Dogs learn about 15 to 20% faster when trained with the clicker. The clicker is more consistent than human voices and it also allows you to desensitize your pet in new or scary situations. Clicker training also allows animals of moderate intelligence to adapt and use their training in a positive manner. For example I clicker trained a cat to wave at me and then I will click and pet him and give him attention. Now, when he wants me to pet him he waves at me, letting me know he is hoping I will come over and reward him with some petting. If he weren’t clicker trained, he would probably just jump all over me or meow or something to get my attention.

Q&A: I need help with this “grams in a hot dog” question !!! help, so lost!?

Question by IowaGrl: I need help with this “grams in a hot dog” question !!! help, so lost!?
A typical hot dog weighs about 45 grams. Using your data, calculate the number of grams of fat in the hot dog you analyzed. There are about 7 grams of protein in a hot dog. Almost all of the remaining mass is water. Calculate how many calories are provided by the fat, by the protein, and by the water. What percentage of the calories in the hot dog can be attributed to the fat?
My data- mass of hot god: 2.35
Mass of hot dog fat: 0.17

Just go read a package of hot dogs. It’s all too variable anyway. Beef, chicken, pork, turkey… They will all be different.

BTW, you said “hot god”.. Funny!
