Housetraining in an apartment

6 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hi /an/, I'm finally gonna fulfill my dream of having a dog. Gonna get a little Coton de Tulear puppy. I probably won't be able to get him until 2 months or so, but I'm so excited that I can't stop thinking about it. I have read up a lot of stuff about training, and most of them says that you should watch him constantly and take him out immediately if he has to potty. I live in an apartment at 4th floor, so I'm a bit unsure how to run out with the dog the moment I see him wanting to go. I have read about training them to go inside on puppy pads and stuff, but I would prefer to not train him to relieve himself inside. I have also heard that dogs of the bichon types is harder to house train than other dogs. Can anyone share some experience about house training in an apartment and with dogs of the bichon type?

Training deaf dog.

6 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So /an/, I've recently started living in a house with a deaf Jack Russell terrier and she's awful. She actively attacks people who come to the front door; she barks her loud, high pitched deaf bark at anyone she sees walking past the fence; and she viciously tries to get into fights with any other animal she sees. Any tips on how to train a deaf dog since clicker and verbal commands won't work? pic related, dog.

My 19 year old cat gets nasty black crust in his tear ducts. I have to clean his eyes every single day or his head starts twitching. Is it allergies? How do I get it to stop?

alarm pets

Do your pets wake you up in the morning? Or random times at night? My cat jumps on my stomach everyday at 5:30 and keeps kneading and purring until I roll out. I imagine your pets have other routines so feel free to share.

Is it normal for young cats to be aloof? My new 6-7 month old cat is very unaffectionate. I've had him for almost a month, and I've only gotten him to purr once. He just won't sit and let people hold and pet him. He's not afraid of people. He just ignores them. Do you think this behavior will change?

Dog won't pee

8 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
/an/... I need help making my dog pee. The evening before last, our chihuahua/dachshund mix wasn't jumping as much as he does (we discourage jumping, and assumed that he was just behaving well that night). Later, when the girlfriend lifted him off the floor (supporting his spine, we're very careful about this) he yelped and continued to make pained noises for a time. The next morning we took him to the vet and noticed that his walking was not as sure on the back legs. The vet manually moved his legs around, had him walk more, massaged and prodded the area, and later took xrays. In the end, nothing of note came out of it. There was no obvious issues with the spine, his hips, or his joints. Though it's possible it's muscular. He prescribed rimadyl for reducing pain and instructed us to "force rest" him by keeping him kenneled and comfortable. So he's been resting, and has also been eating and drinking normally. At this time, his back legs are tensed, but bend when manually manipulated. His tail works, and he can wag it and lift it. While he did have a small defecation while in the kennel (likely while I was asleep, since he's used to being in the bed to wake us up) he was able to normally defecate a bit later in the morning. I cannot, however, get him to urinate. If I don't support his hind legs, he falls to one side or the other. When I do support his hind legs, he seems unwilling to urinate, possible due to my hand positioning. I've tried supporting him just from the outside of his hips, but I'm curious if he can't beat the "lift leg to pee" drive. I even attempted placing him near a spot where one of our other dogs had urinated, and supporting his back end while lifting a leg for him... Obviously, if he starts showing discomfort or refuses to eat/drink, we're going right back to the vet... but if there's a technique to induce urination, I'd like to try it... Thoughts? Pic related, it's our dog: Dan.
