    I got my dog as an adult (5) through a shelter that doesn't have ridiculously strict requirements - I am sure they would adopt out the appropriate dog to a home with kids - and though I didn't have...

    I tend not to talk to dogs that already look wound up, more so than at all ever? The talking to yourself kind of seems a good idea though. The Exploding Car of Canines is indeed traumatic.

    But...

    Do keep in mind that the vast majority of people here on COTH are old enough for our brains to have finished developing all those fiddly self-preservation bits. So what I might do (as someone in my...

    We had an incident with the house about six months after we moved in - the previous owners had an alarm system but my housemate didn't want to continue the service, so it was supposed to be...

    I will admit to talking to dogs in cars, but usually it is of the nature of "oh, shush, I not coming in your car, see, I'm going to get into mine right now." And I go about my business and get in my...

    I know how demoralizing it can be. PsA seems to be tough to treat because not everyone seems to respond well to the same medications. But hang in there - you haven't run out of options to try yet....

    I thought it was generally considered that heated barns aren't good for horses anyway? Not enough ventilation?

    I've started telling people I know who are first time dog owners or first time getting a puppy that the most important thing is MANNERS. People get so caught up in obedience class, but honestly -...

    My housemate had someone complain to the store he was in during the winter because he left his kid (9) and my dog in the car while he ran in. Kid was playing on iPad, they had a blanket to cuddle up...

    Random thing, re: sleep and joint pain. I've found this year (even over the summer) that a heated mattress pad and heated blanket go a long way towards helping with pain at bedtime so I can get to...

    This really annoys me. My dogs enjoy car rides. And it gives me time with them that I wouldn't otherwise have because I have to get the errands done. (I talk to them in the car, etc.) but because...

    Yup. My Black and Tan lab mix used to love to lie out in the sun in the summer and bake himself for a bit. He had access to shade, he had access to inside - he wanted to be in the sun. So as long as...

    Hrm. None of my dogs have really been like that about the car, so I dunno about what triggered it, etc. Sounds scary, even for a dog person. However, my parents have a cocker spaniel who Will Not...
