Hey /an/ do you have some kind of website/book/whatfuckingever that you point newfags to, regarding taking care and training doges ? I would like to get a corgi later and train it for working in Security but I have never properly trained my dogs and I should probably get my shit together with the next one.
>>2055406 If you're serious about learning how to be a proper animal trainer, read Don't Shoot the Dog by Karen Pryor. Despite the title, it's not specific to dogs but is more of a training textbook. Every professional trainer I know swears by it.
After you read this, THEN read some specific dog training and care books (maybe other anons can suggest some good ones because I can't think of any right now). But Don't Shoot the Dog is basically the Bible for learning the fundamental principles of training.
This is my girlfriend's cat. Me being allergic I shouldn't be coexisting with it in the same flat, but I'm feeling fine. We did some research on hypoallergenic cats and we found that she looks just like a Russian Blue cat and it really made sense. We're looking for an expert opinion on the matter. Is she a pure breed or not? Thanks in advance.
Fish that stop eating when they're full and that will eat like half my guppy fry. I need a fish or some fish that will slowly pick off my guppies. But that won't decimate the fry population. Sorry for starting a new thread. I guess.
I need some ideas on how to induce natural selection to my guppy tank. I have 35 guppy fry and I need to kill some off so only the strongest and most intelligent survive. I would use a predator but it doesn't seem like a good idea for fear of killing all my fish. Something like a goldfish maybe ? To just eat a couple of the fry but maybe not always eat them
>>2055256 No, bad idea. Goldfish are poop machines, and they grow huge. They really are more a pond fish than anything else.
I would instead go to the store and buy the betta with the largest/heaviest fins you can find. That way only the slowest/most stupid fry will get eaten.
I would also get some java moss, tie it to a rock or whatnot, and with every water change gently comb it out with a smooth wide toothed comb. That way the individual strands become long and bushy so there is a shit ton of hiding places within... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
A male sugar glider is coming into my care. I do not intend on keeping him as much as I do finding him a new home with someone already familiar with sugar gliders, but there is a slight possibly I will keep him. I spent two days with my friend/his current owner and he is pretty chill for a glider. He owns two others but they are already a bonded pair, and are much more active than he is. When I am back home with him I will be taking him to the vet because one of his eyes is cloudy and comparing his level of activity to the other two, I want to make sure he gets checked out....

The most important thing about gliders that no one really elaborates on, is how fucking nightmarish their talons are. Do not think you'll be able to clip them. Don't think a sandpaper wheel insert will trim them. And don't think you'll want to keep playing with them when they accidentally destroy your skin purely by walking on it. I still have scars on the back of my neck from where they crawled around, and we got rid of them 2 years ago.
That was the dealbreaker for us. We never let... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Keep them on a leash whenever out of the cash. A good, long one. Yes, you're hands will get fucked while putting it on and taking it off (we used collars. We could never get the body harnesses on them because they're squirmy rodents and don't want you to put them on). Anyway, yeah, leash them and keep them close. They will head straight for the inside of any couch, behind bed frames, etc. They want to hide in a dark space. The leash will... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2055091 >>2055096 >>2055091 Really? I've been playing with all three of them for the past two days(at night since I don't really sleep), and I have only a scratch or two on the front of my neck. I guess my skin is just thick for the most part. The two MUCH more active ones are master jumpers and ive been having a blast with them but the guy I'm getting is no where near as active. Yeah he climbs and maybe... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm having trouble rising my tank salinity to brackish levels. Trying to treat my guppies for ick. So far I've raised the temperature to 88 degrees and they like it. But some of my fry and two of my adult females are showing signs of severe stress and just sitting on the bottom or near the bottom
I've Raised the salinity to 3 ppt. II've used grocery store sea salt and can't raise it past 3 in the tank despite adding like 25 tablespoons of salt. How much should I put into my 10 gallon tank?
>>2055072 Add an aerotor to your tank. If you havent already done that then your just asking to kill off all your fish. 85 degrees is all you need, I would not go higher than that. The higher the temperature, the less oxygen is available to the fish, and Ich stops reproducing at 85 degrees, with one rare strain able to reproduce up to 92 degrees, but you almost definitely dont have that. The best way that I've found to treat ich is; 1. Raise temp to 85 (in your case lower) 2. Add SOME salt to the tank, definitely... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2055077 Also forgot to add.. water changes. Do them often. Like 10% a day. This is really to help counteract the amount of food you should be feeding them. The feeding is crucial, as a healthy, happy animal should naturally be more resistant to disease. That means not only feeding dried food, but foods that are 'treats' and the fish go crazy for like mysis, or blood worms.
