welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

If one day, you’ll find your dog missing – and there’s no dead body around, try checking your local government and see if your dog is one of the stray dogs caught and taken to the pound earlier. You see, if a dog – with or without an owner is seen roaming around public places without a leash, it is immediately considered a stray dog. Be aware and don’t miss reading this:

HELP! MY DOG WAS CAUGHT AND TAKEN TO THE POUND! IS THIS RIGHT/LEGAL?

By: pawsphilippines.weebly.com

Owners whose pets were caught roaming the streets or public places should claim their pets immediately. The holding period of dogs in the pound vary depending on the city ordinance (from 24 hours to 3 days to 1 week). Dogs that are not claimed within the holding period are supposed to be humanely euthanized (for animal population control – as stated in RA8485 The Animal Welfare Act), but we’ve heard from concerned citizens that this is not always the case.  http://pawsphilippines.weebly.com/city-pound-help-my-dog-was-caught-and-was-taken-to-the-pound-is-this-rightlegal.html


It is cruel to your neighbors allowing your dog to mess around their property or their path ways – just because you can’t be a responsible owner. If paying the fine just to take back your dog is too high a price for you, then you have no right to own a pet. Note that euthanasia is often the remedy for the government to control the increase of these unwanted animals. Your dog is better left dead than let other people die of heart attack because of your dog’s loitering around! Cruel but true and this goes with cats too.

There are No Bad Dogs – Only Bad Owners

Pet dogs are becoming a problem in our village. They loiter around, potty everywhere and very noisy most of the time. Plans to contain them are already in place but stubborn dog owners are blocking the progress. They question the policies, do not show up during meetings and worst – they do not respect the privacy of others especially their neighbors. This explains why their dogs are unruly – because they are stubborn themselves:

Dealing with the Dominant Dog

By: Ed Frawley

This article is being written for dog owners who believe that have a problem with aggression or poor behavior with their family dog.

We get a lot of emails from people who believe they have dominant dogs. The fact is very few dogs are truly dominant. We feel the vast majority of the people who email us don’t have dominant dogs but rather they have dogs that have never learned rules.  http://leerburg.com/dominac2.htm



There are actually no bad dogs if trained properly. Dog lovers who cannot take care of pet dogs should not take the responsibility of caring for them. It’s their neighbors that would suffer from their doings – because they are hardly around. Dogs must be nurtured and if you don’t have the time, please don’t own one!

Bury your Dead Dog Right

Dog Looking at and Listening to a Phonograph, ...

Dogs are lovable creatures when nurtured well – but what happens when they die? Shall you just wrap them inside garbage bags and throw them like garbage? Worst, secretly dispose them in the backyard or your neighbor’s abandoned land? Even after life, they are still your pets and you should bury them right. Read this:

What Should I Do If My Dog Dies at Home?

Question: What Should I Do If My Dog Dies at Home?

Answer: Losing your beloved dog is difficult in any situation. However, if your pet dies at the veterinarian’s office, they can help handle the remains for you. If your dog dies suddenly at home, you will need to take certain steps and make a few decisions right away.http://dogs.about.com/od/petloss/f/What-Should-I-Do-If-My-Dog-Dies-At-Home.htm



It was devastating already knowing that my neighbor’s young dog disappeared when I entered the compound gate one afternoon – after buying some dog food. Little did I know that it died because of vehicular accident. I asked where it was buried but my neighbor said – it’s far away. Then this morning, another neighbor complained that bad smell was coming out from the abandoned land next to them. To my dismay, it was the lost dog in my compound that I was looking for earlier.

Teaching Your Dog How to Bark Can Stop Excessive Barking


welcome

By: Elena Grace Flores

Barking is a natural behavior of dogs but teaching them how to properly bark entails behavior modification. They can learn when to bark and when to be quiet. Take a look at this video and see for yourself if you can manage the process with your dog:



Be aware that owning noisy dogs means that you are an irresponsible owner. You disregard the needs of your dogs and often leave them alone. Before your neighbors can petition your existence in the community, give your dogs some time and practice the procedure of teaching your dog how to bark as shown in the video. This way, your dogs will love you more – as well as your neighbors!

Understandably, you cannot just post a no barking sign for the noisy dog to shut up! It can also annoy your neighbor and might be mistaken as an act of war. Don’t do that. As much as possible, retain your pleasant relationship with the dog’s owner. This way, your dog problem can be remedied immediately when you show that you are trying to help instead of fighting for your right! Here’s a good article for your guidance:

What can I do About a Neighbor’s Barking Dog?

By: http://www.wisegeek.org

A neighbor’s barking dog can strain the nerves. If you work from home, or if the dog barks relentlessly through the night, it can make home seem like a place where rest or peace are seldom an option. There is about as much advice on how to quiet a neighbor’s barking dog as there are barking dogs in the world. Since some neighbors may respond hostilely to your suggestion that they quiet their dogs, you may need to approach the situation in a more passive and friendly manner. http://www.wisegeek.org/what-can-i-do-about-a-neighbors-barking-dog.htm



It surely helps to be friendly with your neighbor despite the annoying dog. If you do not like the owner, you can even befriend the dog. Act of kindness can never go wrong. Anxiety is the number one cause why dogs misbehave. An expert dog trainer can do the trick – or you can act as one by just giving the dog heartfelt attention!
