What the fuck is wrong with my bearded dragon? He absolutely refused to shit in his enclosure. Now I know what you're thinking. >Perhaps it is impacted? >Perhaps it is constipated. No. It isn't either. You know how I know this? Because the moment he is brought out of his cage HE WILL SHIT. No matter what, every single time. The only time he will shit in his cage is when he absolutely cannot hold it anymore I have never read about this behavior before on the internet Have I somehow conditioned him to shit out of his cage? Can I fix it? Is he just a neat-freak? (pic related, him and the pokemon he's named after)

So, my family has acquired a dog recently, and he always follows me around, and sleeps in my room when I'm present. This has happened with two other male dogs too, that we've watched for 2-4 weeks. Is it just random? Because I don't treat the dogs any different than the rest of my family.

Hi, /an/! I have a problem.My... 23 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hi, /an/! I have a problem. My mother-in-law adopted a toy fox-terrier mix in October. It is a little over a year old, and is generally a good dog. She has a problem though with people getting their faces close to her face. She curls up her lip and bites at them. She gets really mean about it. It's not a playful bite. Now, I'm aware of the many causes as to why she would do this, but I want some advice on breaking the habit. My mother-in-law doesn't want to take my advice on the matter because she's "never had to do that with a dog before." All of her other dogs she has raised since they were new-borns though. I've tried to explain that I think the best way to break it would be to love on the dog, and put your face close to hers. Before she gets the chance to get mad, give her a treat. Keep doing this until you can put your face on her face. Keep it there. If she doesn't try to bite, give her a treat. If she does, put her in "time out," aka a kennel. Ignore her for a while. When she comes out she gets no treats the rest of the day. Does this sound like it would work? I think it would. I've had to teach my dog not to bite hands, and this is how I handled it. The biggest problem is that my mother-in-law has no discipline towards the dog whatsoever, and the dog desperately needs some because it clearly had no training and was abused when we adopted it. My mother-in-law gives treats constantly for no reason, has no kennel for the dog, and lets the dog roam where it wants. She tried to explain to me this morning how the dog tried to nip her again. She said she "corrected her." Well, when I went to look at the dog, it was chewing her cow hoof like nothing had happened. I asked, "How was she corrected?" My mother-in-law explained she "fussed at her." I tried to reason with her on the flaws in her approach, but she just continued being stubborn, saying, "Well, I just won't love on her like that anymore." Help me reason with her, /an/.

Hi /an/. I don't come... 17 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hi /an/. I don't come here much, but the couple of times I have you guys have ended up being very knowledgeable. I have a problem with my dog, one that's becoming very severe. My dog used to live inside for the first 3 or so years of his life. We moved 4 years ago and put him outside. He didn't really seem to mind too much, he was lonely for the first few weeks but he learned to entertain himself between play time with us(we have a big yard, but we're renting. we CAN NOT let him in). It's been fine for 3+ years. So here's what happened - I'm in the south, and with the recent storm the landlord said I could let him in for just while it was iced over and stuff so he would be safe. All went well, he was a good dog, but of course he couldn't stay in once the snow melted off. When I put him back out(2 weeks ago I think?) all was well. But about 2 days after that he started barking. CONSTANTLY. He whines outside of the door 14 hours a day. Nothing I do helps. I go out and play with him for 2 or 3 hours a day, but the moment I come back in he's yapping outside of the door again. I feel so sorry for him, because I guess he's just lonely, but I have to make this stop. He used to play with the neighbors dogs and run around on his own all of the time, but now he just sits there whining. I've tried a lot of stuff to make him happy. I've tried spending more time with him, I've tried making sure he was comfortable(I bought him a really great new dog house with a built in heater and put the nicest, fluffiest blanket I owned in it). Please help..I don't want to be mean to him, but I just don't know how to fix this and it's been going on for 2 weeks. I feel like something is wrong, I even took him to the vet, and it really just seems like he's suddenly decided he wants to live inside.
How do I make my cat stop... 25 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click to view.
How do I make my cat stop following me? Sad to say I lost a girl a couple of years ago because she followed me down the road, lost her and she never returned. Very worried that it will happen again. Locking the cat-flap isn't a solution since if she's outside she will find me when I leave and still follow. Most times I will notice her and put her inside but it won't always be like that.

Tricked into pitbull mix

Well I was all excited to get a new dog, the documentation at the pound said "shepherd mix". I'd ask what with, they all said, geez, don't know. Get her home, realize it's pit bull. At first I thought it was lab or something, but the curvature of the tail, the squareness of the face... What the fuck should I do? I'm freaking out a little.
