Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

I just want you all to know I didn't read a damn thing you put because it was attacking me on me having snow outside because it was something both me and my boyfriend agreed would be best for her. Just because she is an outside dog doesn't mean I spend less time with her or don't care for her. Hell ...

Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

No dog shall ever take the place of my family. My dog IS my family. I could rant for another page, but I am going to leave it there, as a person who puts their own happiness over their dogs happiness and well-being, is not someone I will ever see eye to eye with. I never said snow wasn't family. Bu...

Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

Cheery your postings make me sick. Just wanted to throw that out there. You are a very very selfish individual and you need help. No dog shall ever take the place of my family. Of those I love. No dog will become the reason why I leave my husband because we both agree its better to have a dog outsid...

Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

For one, Cherry, I work with snow on my off days and now in the mornings before work to redirect her energy and tire her down before I leave home from work. There is Always someone home, 2 elderly people. My boyfriends parents. Why do I have to dump by Soon to be husband because he doesn't believe i...

Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

She hasn't shown any signs of trying to learn how to climb out and I don't think she will either. I'd be more scared of her trying to dig out then climb. Not a good idea to get comfortable with. All dogs are natural climbers and almost all will try it at some point. Pit Bull type dogs are high jump...

Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

I am actually going to do a run for the other dog once I get paid. I can't keep them in the same pen since Snow is very protective of her food and will attack any animal over it. Snows Pen has a couple places covered ( two of four corners). She hasn't shown any signs of trying to learn how to climb ...

Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

The good thing about this place is there are no neighbors. There's about 39 acres. She was more a nuisance at my grandmothers house then she is here. And given she was a dog that stayed in all the time and now having to stay outside, she is rather quiet until someone walks outside. Otherwise she sta...

Re: Female humping female.

dog will quickly and in a warning state warn the dog to stop if they don't want them to mount them. Usually The warning only persist into a fight if the other dog ignores the warnings and tries again. Yet another indication of your lack of dog owning skills. It is common for PBs to ignore warning s...

Re: Female humping female.

I can see correcting it in a dog-cat situation.Its not necessarily rude in a dog-dog situation. The only one deeming it inappropriate would be you. The dog will quickly and in a warning state warn the dog to stop if they don't want them to mount them. Usually The warning only persist into a fight if...

Re: Female humping female.

Its actually common. Dogs of any gender mount when they are excited and to assert dominance. I wouldn't really correct them over this, its not hurting anything. Unless you find the behavior bothering the other dog.

Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

HAHA wow, yeah snow isn't scared of a little wet grass. @Red- Thank you for the reminder of what could happen to an outside dog (theft, poison, ect). But no one is going to get near that pen without snow barking and there is always someone home. Once Koi is brought here, No one will be of walking di...

Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

Thank you Proudmommy, I do like the kennel set up you gave me. When the grass dries outside I am going to go walk her pin and make sure it meets those requirements. I am glad I was able to get SOME good advise out of this thread. Thank you.

Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

I think the difference here is how you view a dog and how I do. To me a dog is a part of the family, yes. But they are not equal to a human. Where I walk, play, feed, water and spend time with my dogs, I feel that it wont kill them to stay outside either. (I bet someone's come back to that will hav...

Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

I don't see how this being a 'pet' orientated forum has anything to do with inside and outside dogs. A dog is just as much as pet indoors as it is out. And no, it is no ones business on why my dogs stay outside now and doesn't mean I care for them any less. I still have as much right to post and ask...
