The Plant General - Paphiopedilum Edition >tfw too poorfag to buy one of (((pic related)))
Welcome to /plant/, the magical green place on this blue board. ITT: we compare /comfy/ gardens, post our various shit succulents and assorted granny houseplants, and generally put everyone to sleep.

>>2270620 You can get puppy foods formulated for large breeds anon. Large breeds take longer to grow, too; they finish up at about two years.
My vet had me switch to adult food around 6-8 months. I had him on large breed food initially because I was unsure about how large he'd get (golden retriever mix), then when it was obvious he wouldn't get past 55lbs I switched to regular puppy food. I think he might have gotten a little bigger if I hadn't put him on large breed food, but probably only a small difference.
As long as you're giving them sufficient exercise, stimulation and meet the care requirements relative to the breed/individual then I don't see the issue.
My dog and I live with my parents while I'm at college and they have a back yard she can run around in, but I don't really like leaving her out there for long alone, she much prefers being inside with everyone anyway. Gets 2-3 walks a day and soon I'm going to start agility training with her (she's shown a lot of promise, but she's just a pup) and taking her out to dog parks/open fields.
>>2270368 There´s no way. They´re SUPPOSED to do it, and it´s very good. Why? They´re GUARDING THEIR TERRITORY. One of the best alarms/protections a house can have is a dog. If you´re living in a tough neighborhood, i strongly suggest you adopt one, if you haven´t already.
Am I the only one that thinks those guys aren't black, but rather colorful as fuck, like parrots, but in very dark colors? I mean: every time I look upon those, especially in the sunshine, I see both dark blue and dark green in their feathers. Told about that to my friend and he called me delusional. Am I right or am I wrong?
>>2270323 It's my fenced in suburban backyard. I only came to the conclusion that my neighbours were baiting when I found her with the mouse. There aren't a heap dead mice laying around my backyard, I checked, just this one she found.
Hey guys, I wanted to get a fox as a pet but I've been told they don't make good pets. I know they hard to domesticate and they last less than dogs, but if have a good amount of terrain why shouldn't I have a fox? A guy told me you guys would explain me.
My cat has sprayed on almost every wall in every room in my house and my family wants to get rid of him because they think that our house is to stressful of an environment. Is there some way to get him to stop?
so I spent all day yesterday following him around, I would ring a bell then give him cheese hoping he would associate bell with snacks and come running when he goes off somewhere or is barking and I want him to stop
it didn't work and now I'm out of cheese, the bell gets no response out of him either
Buy freeze dried liver, and rather than the bell use your voice. My dog picked up marker training in no time; whenever the dog is doing something good mark it with "yes" in a happy manner and then immediately give the treat. Only give praise after the dog has the treat so they dont confuse "good dog!" With the marker "yes". This way its very clear they are doing what it is you want them to do.
With my dog i began marking anytime he laid down, sat or started chewing on a toy. Make sure to mark right when the behavior is complete, so dog fully... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2267788 Well once he's responsive to your marker training you need to teach him sit and stay. Once he has a good stay you can move on to recall. I would begin training in the house and then move outside once hes got that down to work on getting him to listen with distractions like the other dogs. Have a leash on him even in the house so you can do quick corrections while training and it will keep him from wondering off.
This is really as much help as i can be for now, in order to get the proper technique to teach... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey guys, worried about my cat in pic related. She's very young and we've had her for about two months now, nothing wrong at all with her up until this morning when we woke up and we saw her limping. We picked her up and looked at her right front paw and it almost looked dislocated. If you put pressure on it she would cry but once you let her down she would go back to playing.
What should we do? Just wait it off or take her to the vet immediately? We don't have that much money for anything more than a regular checkup. Thank you in advance
>>2267378 Definitely take her to the vet! If money is really an option you can discuss it with your vet, some are more sympathize than others and will perform certain things for reduced charges (or even free!). There's also organizations that help pay for vet bills, just a quick Google search should bring you to some.
So can anything be done to prevent face mauling later in life? Neutering, dental removal? It's really shitty these guys are perfect pets when young only to have them then turn into demons later in life.
>>2266032 What type of work? Different breeds are good for different purposes. A German Shepherd is excellent at police work. I see a lot of Malinois as military dogs. A border collie is the best sheep herder. A molosser like a Rottweiler would be best for pulling a cart on your farm.
Hey /an/, /k/ommando here. I have a security job in the middle of nowhere at a scrap yard, and there's some cats and raccoons around by the dumpster.

>>2257470 I'd recommend keeping it indoors. Even though it's been outside, it'll live a longer life indoors. Just be sure to play with it for about half an hour a day, show affection to it, and also give it some time to adjust to its environment.
If he wants to go outside, I'd recommend letting it outside on a leash. Let it look at birds, squirrels, etc.
He's a cute little guy. I'm sure you'll take good care of him.
How do I get a dog to stop shitting all over the place?
Ivawear she due es it to piss me off.
>let her out every hour or two >leave her out for five to ten even fifteen minutes >encourage her(good girl!) All she does is play with the fucking leaves > when she gets inside, she shits and pisses in the Matt's because the people I got her from were so FUCKIng retard they matt trained her.
Help. I keep thinking its preferable... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Anybody know what type of dog this is? It's really affectionate and energetic. It has a wirehair coat. I found it at a park while it was very cold out so i decided to take it in. If someone posts a lost picture for it ill give it to it's owner but if not im keeping it. i just want to know what type it is. also dubs decide names
Make sure to put up an ad on craigslist, maybe a poster or two in the park. Did it have a collar when you found it? When you take it into the vet for checkups and vaxx, have them look for a microchip. Looks like a mutt to me, but idk
Hello, /an/. I'm watching over my parents senior dog for about a month while they're away on a trip. He's a small breed; eleven years old and is generally a good dog indoors. He doesn't tear up furniture, shit/piss all over the house, greets house guest, etc.
The problem is that he is an embarrassment on leash due to his formally mentioned poor training. He'll bark and pull at every fast moving object (joggers, bicycles, mail trucks) and god forbid he ever cross paths with ANY quadruped bigger than the size of a groundhog.
I don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2269624 Try a sensation harness. It'll stop him from pulling at least, and can distract him if he tries barking. Ideally you'll only need him in one for a week before he learns that running off while on a leash is a dumb thing to do. If you don't want to/can't get this, try an ordinary or 'no-pull' harness like the one from thundershirt.
I can't find a toy that she won't completely tear to shreds. sometimes in a matter of seconds.She doesn't chew on shoes or furniture, Only her toys I get her. The only thing she can't destroy is a deer antler I gave her.
>>2269528 I've gotten them before, it was susposedly made of the same material as fire fighters hoses. She ripped it right apart. Its not really bothering me that she destroys them, I mostly wanna know why she does with every single one
>>2269527 >why does my dog destroy toys because it's fun, you fucktwit.
see those fangs in her mouth? those are for tearing flesh apart. since she cant tear flesh apart (and also not hunt and have a proper canine lifestyle because you imprison it in your home 24/7) she chose another outlet.
what I dont get is why any of this wouldnt be blatanly obvious to everyone
Hi /an/. I used to be from /diy/, /g/, /b/, and /x/, but I haven't been on 4chan in a while. I'm coming to you today with a sad story, and hoping to get maybe some answers or clues about what happened.
Yesterday, we all went to my parents' house to celebrate the holiday. They had two chocolate labs - both rescues so we don't know their exact ages, but they've had them for nine or maybe ten years. One is geriatric, the other about 10 or 11 years old.
The younger had been coughing for just over two weeks. The vet called it "kennel... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2269499 >you know this for a fact because he had a full vet checkup recently or are you assuming it because he seemed to be happy and playful? He did see the vet in the week prior, and the vet said that aside from the cough, he was healthy.
>it could be that with all the excitement of the party and the viral infection that he overexerted himself. This is a good point. According to my parents, he hadn't been acting lethargic prior to this, just coughing.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
