What's your advice for when the SPAYED bitch rips the dog's throat out?

My two males do it to each other on a regular basis. It has become so consistent that once the ear licking starts we separate them to prevent any mounting Oh. So you're saying that the ear licking is like...foreplay? :tongue: I think it is, in some way. Has anyone ever seen the ear licking in dogs ...

My dog learned that if she doesn't release, then the game stops. She likes the game more than she actually likes the bite surface/target.

She has to play by my rules to play the game.

One difference that I've seen, is that a male who is trying to mate with a bitch that is in season, will lick her ears to get her to comply.

I have never seen a dog that mounts out of practice, dominance or play do this guesture.

My dogs get over excited with the rare visitor, so I leash them until they calm down.
If I know people are coming, I also make sure to exercise to burn off some extra energy. It really does make a difference.

It doesn't matter if they're raised with the other animals. It is not an assurance that they will get along with them. A dog that has high prey drive can never be fully trusted with other animals. Chances are, your dog is going to get worse about chasing the cat. Prey drive goes up, not down. Every ...

Culling is frowned upon because it usually means killing puppies. Most people breeding dogs(purposely and accidentally) are not emotionally strong enough to kill babies. An animal altered genetically by humans(domestic dog) desperately needs to be weeded through at every breeding. Tweaking genes mak...

Poor Cesar :( If it's only a tiny hole, I'd just try to keep it clean - since he will probably just lick off all the medicine anyway. If Guinness is resource guarding with his bowl - it's time to put it away until feeding times - guarded resources get taken away. It's your bowl, your crate - your ho...

Make sure to disinfect the area - if the pup was there, the entire place is infected with the virus. :( I hate Parvo

Time outs do not work on dogs. Punishment does not work on dogs. Dogs are not people, and punishment will not teach them like it does people. Your mother is incorrect on her theory about punishment and learning. Dog Aggression is a common trait in pit bulls. You cannot make the dogs get along, but i...

In order to tell, you'd have to actually check out the dog - Not just see it on T.V. or in the Newspaper.

Interesting fact of the day, most human shampoos have a ph of 5.5. Dogs skin ph is between 6.2 and 8.62 (depending on the breed) Though interestingly enough apparently Johnson and Johnson's baby shampoo has a ph of 7. If that is true then technically it wouldnt hurt to use on your dog. Useless fact...

Human shampoo is made for human skin. Dogs have a different pH than people do and most human shampoos are really not good for dogs. Even baby shampoo :)
