Dog Training

Post by DocDoesFarming »

Well it looks like we've added a new Dog to the Doc clan.
A week or so back when it was absolutely pissing down and cold a young couple on holiday from Ibaraki I believe came to us with this sopping wet fox looking dog trying to find its owner as it looked liked it had run away and was hiding under a bridge near us. They had been trying for 2 hours going from door to door until someone mentioned about us having dogs so maybe it was ours, anyway we decided to take it in and try and find the original owners as the couple live in an apartment and can't look after it.

This dog must be nearing the end of its life from the way it limps about and from her vision being a bit shit, I doubt we'll be able to find the owners even though we've posted loads of notices so I guess she'll officially be ours in a couple of months.

What really pissed me off about this whole thing was people mentioning that they saw this dog that's obviously run away pissing wet and cold but didn't bother to help her.
At least we were kindly given dog food donations so that's something I guess.

We named her Kitsune because we're that creative with names.

Awwwww, she's really cute. Good on you for offering to take her in, hopefully you can find her owners and they are happy to be reunited with their pet but at least in the meantime she will have a comfortable home and nice people to hang out with.

I don't imagine Japan will be adopting compulsory microchipping anytime soon but it would be a good thing if it was taken up.

We're the same and that's why our cats are called Neko & Cat-chan :lol:

For the last month or so my dogs have got insanely jealous whenever I am around them to the point they have started properly snarling at each other and fighting if they get close to each other now drawing blood on occasions.
I've had to shorten their leads to stop them fighting but they still go full on mental barking at each other.

What the hell can I do to ge them to get them to stop it? They never used to do anything like this before and I try to spend equal time with each of them trying not to show favour to one particular dog.
Is it an age thing? They've still got their little doggy balls so maybe it's male testosterone.
Or maybe I'm just super popular with them :(

I really wish I did that earlier as the price is dependent on their weight.

Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit.

I sense a trip to the vet might be in your dog's future :twisted:

Gonna go out on a limb here and not sure if there is any connection at all but when we used to have roosters they would get remarkably "frisky"/violent when spring started to give way to winter. You could literally see what was previously a pretty friendly male chicken suddenly turn into a homicidal killing machine once the weather started warming up and daylength increased. Now I know it's a fairly distant relationship between chickens and mammals (they are literally the descendents of T-Rex and other dinosaurs) but spring does seem to set males of various species off.

But quite likely there is another completely innocent explanation.

Our local city hall has a plan for neutering dogs and cats, maybe yours might have something similar ? For male dogs and cats they cover most of the expenses for females it varies between 50 - 75%.

Hmmmmm so you think it's maybe just the weather/seasonal related?
Thing is I can't remember them being this crazy last year but I know that there is something called Seasonal affective disorder so possibly it's affecting them.

Find out if there is a subsidy deal with your prefecture/municipality

No subsidies in our area unfortunately.
So I take it it's their balls then that are the issue?
