  • How do I stop my dog from repeatedly peeing in the carpet?

    Best answer: You need to get rid of the smell in the carpet because that will make the dog think that's "her" place to pee. You need to housebreak her.

    Best answer: You need to get rid of the smell in the carpet because that will make the dog think that's "her" place to pee. You need to housebreak her.
    Watch her like a hawk, and if she starts to circle and whine, quickly grab her and take her outside where you want her to pee and say "Go potty"(or whatever). Once she goes, act all excited and praise her like there is no tomorrow."Good potty!"
    If she squats and bears down as if she's going to poop, grab her, take her out and say "go poo"(or whatever). When she poops where you want, praise her to the skies."Good poo!" (It helps to consistently use phrases that they will understand eventually.)
    It takes a while because puppies don't have much control, but take her out a few times a day until you both get into a routine and she knows how to tell you she needs to go. But certainly first thing in the morning and just before bedtime at night. I took my lab out 3 or 4 times a day but she was an adult by then.

    Best answer: I don't know about whether or not bleeding must occur before pregnancy is possible, but I wanted to add a few things to watch out for...
    I hope to God the female is the Bull Mastiff, because otherwise, you have a really serious problem :(. If you breed a female that is much smaller, or a smaller breed than the male, it often goes very, very wrong. The puppies get too big for the mother to birth, and if she survives long enough to try to give birth, a puppy usually gets stuck, strangled, and then the mother dies quickly, as well as all the puppies inside her. It's not common for the mother and babies to survive without intervention in this situation, so you'll need a vet to let you know her chances and the puppies chances, and be present at the birth, which will cost money, and may not even be enough. So please go to the vet now, and they can tell you how best to proceed, so that everyone will be happy and alive.

    I also worry about this because if the female is only one year of age, birth won't be easier on her. It's like how 12 year old humans, or younger teenager humans, that have babies are much more likely to have complications. Their body hasn't had quite enough time to get ready, and make space. So if the pit IS the Mama, she will almost certainly not have a body that can withstand giving birth to Mastiff pups, so she will almost definitely need a vet to survive.
    To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of "Backyard breeders" or "BYBs." That means someone that isn't a professional at breeding dogs, and anyone that purposefully produces mix breed pups is definitely a BYB, but I really am just trying to alert you to the risks.

    I also wish you hadn't let your female get pregnant, because I'm really sick of good dogs not getting homes, and BYBs are usually the ones that produce them, and it's not going to be easy to find good permanent homes for a pit/Mastiff mix.
    My babies have both been rescues, one a "Rottbull," abandoned as a stray, obviously witnessed some trauma involving a gun, and stray for long enough he was petrified of being hungry, and my little girl Wren, discarded at some point before her first year, became a stray, so afraid of humans she almost killed herself trying to get away from humans (that were trying to save her.) Whatever happened to her first litter, it wasn't with her when rescuers caught up with her, so she probably either watched her litter freeze or starve, or was separated from them by a human. Three years after her rescue, she still panics if she isn't with us or her daycare, and will hurt herself trying to escape. She's a purebred Staffie (DNA test.)
    Please, please, please contact and vet, and if your girl is pregnant, you need to decide what to do. If she IS the pit, you need to listen to vet and if they don't think she should have puppies, I think you need to do a gravid spay, you owe her a chance to live. If the vet agrees to help birth them and thinks it safe, you need to be vigilant about her vet care, and have contracts that you strictly enforce for adopters of the pup, that they MUST go back to you, and you need to be prepared to take back or keep many of the pups.
    No dog should end up stray like my babies did. I would probably beat down the owners of my babies parents, because it was their job to make sure she never ended up scared and alone, freezing to death, full of parasites and starving. But she did, and that's on them. She got lucky, because she happened to end up with us, and we aren't going to abandon her even though she literally can't be alone ever, because she will panic, but for every dog like her, so many are killed a week after they are picked up.
    Just be vigilant, and do right be your girl and her pups, okay? Make sure your dogs and their descendants all have the life they deserve.

Now I'm not making this up because I've heard about killings and seen people's dead body being picked up by ambulance in a gang violence.. My uncle has given me a female rottweiler she was bigger at birth now only 3 months old she still has lots to grow and no doubt she will grow into a huge rottweiler... Now my question is a female dog capable of protecting their owners because we majority of criminals who were attacked by dog protecting their owners those dogs were male dogs..

    The dog is a 12 year old Boston terrier already has had one eye amputated and it seems his other eye is going blind. He belongs to my boyfriend's grandpa,before you say "mind your own business" I just want to know if it's possible he could still live a decent life and maybe try to convince his owner to let him live awhile longer just to see if he'll adjust to being blind or if it would just be better to put him down. Other than being blind the dog doesn't seem to have any other issues health wise. He is a farm dog and is often let out at night, we also have predators like coyotes around the area so if that makes a difference just putting that out there. Also curious as to if the vet would put the dog to sleep tomorrow when we take him to get examined to see for sure if he is totally blind or if they would make the owner schedule for the euthanasia.

    My mum got a dog even after i continued to tell her not to and that i didn t want a dog. I tried to put up with the dog for her but i am just sick of it! I can t stand the smell of dog, and it is especially worse since I have SPD, now the house always smells like dog and I feel as if the floor is always dirty. I have taken this issue to my Mum so she tried a bunch of new soaps and they all smell bad! I don t feel comfitable walking into my own home anymore. Whenever anyone comes into the house she goes ballistic and won t stop growling, and unless she is near someone she won t stop barking and whining and it gets on my nerves. Every few days I have an SPD overload, or anxiety attack about the issue in my room but i hide it. I want things to go back to how they used to before we had the dog but i feel really bad about approaching the issue to my Mum as she loves the dog and I don t want her to get mad at me. I also feel bad for the dog for getting rid of it. I do like the dog, but i don t know if is worth or the stress and anxiety i get constantly about it. I don t know what to do.
