How come whenever I look up baby pigs, I always get pics/videos of these dumb micro pigs and not normal farm pigs? These micro pigs aren't nearly as cute as "normal" piglets and I don't get why they're so widespread.
Okay /an/ I just got a new job as dog handler/trainer/babysitter. I'm on my sixth day today and this job is trying my patience. At any given time I have 15 dogs (yesterday upwards of 25) in a pack setting. Does anyone have advice on how to be a better trainer/handler? I find I lose my patience easily, especially when it comes to the smaller dogs picking on the larger dogs, and then having to stop the larger dogs from stomping wee lil dachshunds into jelly.
Any advice for a starter dog trainer/handler? I worked in a kennel setting previously, and as is common... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I don't know where you work, but every "doggie daycare" I've ever been in has separated dogs by size first, and then activity level. So you'd have a small dog yard, and then maybe a high energy big dog yard and a lower energy big dog yard. Is your place of employment just letting the chihuahuas mingle with the mastiffs?
>>2021504 First, recommend separting large and smalls. Some large dogs play well, but otherwise it is just a liability. We use a plastic cricket bat with a bit of gravel in it to distract and scare off dogs when they're getting too rowdy. Have a smaller pen you can separate a specific butthead into so the rest of the group can get a break. But yeah, that job is always going to be like watching a herd of toddlers. Is called daycare for a reason.
If you understand the responsibilities needed to take care of one, and you follow the correct liscences, and you aren't keeping a pet of an animal in any sort of endangered status, why SHOULDN'T you be allowed to keep an exotic pet, like a Skunk, or a Raccoon, or a Fennec Fox, or a Coati, or something else in that caliber?
>muh irresponsible owner Well, you don't like irresponsible owners of dogs or cats, why is this any different?
/an/ generally doesn't seem to care about people keeping exotics if they understand and meet their needs and have realistic expectations of what the animal is and how it will act. It's just that those people are the minority and rarely come to ask /an/ where to buy a wolf cub from.
hey dudes. I'm an idiot, and a dog (puppy I believe) has presented himself to me. as in, I was mowing my yard one day, and he just came running to me.
I knocked door to door a few doors down in a good radius, nobody claimed it. he seems to have imprinted on me pretty good now, seeing how he has stayed in my front yard for 2 days now. I might keep it, at least until someone comes forward.
So I might be getting a bottle raised cane Corso pup in a few months, I have no experience with this breed, but I have kept huskies (and delt with all the insanity they produce). What should I expect from a cane corso?
Don't get a bottle raised pup. Cane Corsos need a ton of socialization because of their cautious nature. Don't get a pup less than 12 weeks old. They NEED that time with mom and siblings to learn how to be a dog.
>>2021428 Stick to huskies, or find a better breeder. Generally, if you're planning on getting a dog and only do research/ask about it AFTER, you should stick to goldfish. Preferably goldfish from a better breeder than this.
