Yes, they work, just make sure there is an adjustment for the level of shock and read guides carefully on how to use them. Also, consistency is really important or it's just gonna be abusive. If it's not consistent, they won't make a connection.
That said, the one I used was a pain in the ass because the prongs would always lose skin contact after an hour. The means they shock wouldn't happen when I needed it. Which meant inconsistency. So I stopped using it. It was going to do more harm than good.
>>2201578 I want to use it for out door/off leash training so consistency is my goal for sure. And we're having issues with surfing the counter for food. She knows its wrong and so only does it when she thinks we can't see.
Any good guides out there you'd recommend? In addition, she's fairly long haired so is that likely to interfere with the connection to skin?
I watch a golden retriever for a family that had their dog trained on them for when they take her off leash to aid in recall (she barely needs it but it's good to have). Their method is call the dog, if no response: beep the collar. It's really good for dogs that are already trained to be on an electric fence because they know that BEEP BEEP means they're doing something wrong. I feel like it would be hard to use them to train a dog against counter surfing given how hard it would be to be consistent with them.
I hate my cat's balls so much. It stands out too much in siamese cats, his body is all white, but his dick and balls are completely black. Like, just black, not even gradient, just big black balls that he keeps waving at me.
Problem: I live in Queensland, where the Summer minimum is 20 degrees and the Summer maximum is usually 35, and can get up to 45. This is not ideal.
I have read conflicting reports of how well Malamutes can cope with this. Lower your pitchforks - I am not asking permission to leave any dog under the sun for eight hours without water or shade while I go get fucked in the ass by my boss. The dog would be inside, in the airconditioning, with water. Many people say that Malamutes are fine like this, with their exercise... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2200449 As long as they are not out during the hottest parts of the day for too long they should be OK. Im on my second husky and live in Texas. Summers here are brutally hot and humid. Can get 45'C+ during the hottest part of the day. I try to do most of the long exercise early in the morning and when the sun goes down. Taking her out during the afternoon pretty much to go to the bathroom but not for too long.

My ~2.5 month old cat tries to suckle my clothes. Does this fuck up cats' teeth/jaws like it does human kids who suckle/suck on pacifiers for too long? If so, how do I get her to stop without making her dislike me or start sucking on different fabrics, like blankets?
I don't think it's because she's scared. She's the most fearless kitten I've ever encountered and I would be shocked to learn she does this out of anxiety. Furthermore, I know it's bad, but dry food is available all day and night (it's for my underweight, geriatric... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2197027 Damn, I didn't even think of teething. Thanks! I'll give the damp washcloth a go.
As for the old cat, I feed her wet food 3-4 times a day as she asks for it, and dry food is there for when I'm not there/awake to feed her. It's been very successful, but she still has a little ways to go until she's at a healthy weight again.

>>2189782 N. ventricosa and alata are fantastic species, there's just surprisingly few people who actually grow pure ones (and alata is almost non-existent in cultivation). Anyway there are fuckloads of beginner-friendly, easy and fast species, including: maxima, boschiana, sanguinea, spathulata, burkei, petiolata, copelandii, many more. Of course hybrids will be even faster and easier, and most of the species above can be readily found in cheap BE hybrids.

So I recently got back from a weekend of dropping off a sibling at college; I picked up my dog from the daycare we send her to, however I noticed that she was limping when we got home.
Now, this daycare we send her to is actually out of a persons house. She essentially has the whole first floor of her house as well as a fenced-in backyard available to the dogs; we've had some minor issues before (the woman keeping a bag of food, or allowing our dog to chew through her harness--keep in mind, I don't think my dog chewed through her harness, as...

How old is she? Keep in mind dogs can sprain just as easily as us. My one dog is on the older side but has tons of energy so I have to actively prevent her from leaping out of the car or off the porch or she may limp for a day or few. Our younger dog has also sprained both of her front paws(separate times) by being a general goofy idiot having a blast running around other dogs.
This could easily just be a little accident that could happen at any time, just unfortunately happened at a place you may have already been wary about. I'd be mad as fuck about the dog... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2202367 >>2202375 She just turned 4; she's an Aussie mix so she definitely has a lot of energy. And yeah, what sucked was that we had an entire bag of food (20+ pounds) and she kept it; that and the harness were what sparked the wary-ness desu. And I guess it could have just been her being her normal energetic self; the only thing that made me wonder if it was a dog was because she totally freaked out at the sight of not one but two dogs (Backing away, hiding behind me,...

These pieces of shits are all over my backyard because my neighbor let his vine plants infest our backyard. I let my cat out roll around on the grass while i watered the plants and she got bitten by one of these. The bites turned into infected abscesses.
I know it's some form of garden spider, but which one specifically?
>>2202182 >blames foliage for spider habitat >thinks garden spider can bite through cat fur >thinks garden spider is on ground in the first place >alleged spider bite turning into abscess >OP is obviously a fraud, either just another troll, or an arachnophobic chickenshit, which is about as bad
So I really want a scorpion.I have a lot of animal experience, tarantulas, lizards, snakes. Bit and scratched plenty so that's not a problem. I was thinking emperor. I want a bigger one but I was hoping to handle it? How do they deal with handling? And if not what's a species I could handle? Tl;dr looking for a scorpion I can handle
I said I have experience with tarantulas, snakes, and lizards. All of which can be handled. Never said I had any experience with scorpions, hence the question. So I'm assuming they just can't be handled at all.
Hey /an/, I'm in a shitty situation and I need advice. My landlord (who I live with) has a cat that's 13 years old with 3 paws in the grave. It's so feeble it can barely walk because it's claws get stuck in the carpet and it isn't strong enough to pull them out. It can't groom itself at all,and on top of that a few days ago it had a seizure, due to recurrent kidney infections. During this seizure it went totally blind, and now it just wanders around a few steps at a time, bumping in to things.
It's obviously not going to live much longer... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2200874 He let's a blind half dead cat outside during the day..
Jesus Christ anon even if you don't take it in that thing will die within a few days. It's ultimately your landlords decision and although it sucks I'd probably just let it run it's course and not get involved.
Any Bobcat hunters going out this fall? Are there any even on this board? Let's share stories and pictures of our hunts/families/kills. I'll begin. This was my daughter and a cat we got out in western md 3-4 years ago.
