I’m really hoping you can help me. We have a 10 year old wheaton, Jasmine. She has always hated dings and dongs. This noise anxiety is getting much worse. Lately, when we let her out in the back yard she won’t come back in. I mean through rain or snow. She prefers to be outside where there are no dings or dongs. When she does come in she goes to the basement where there are no people or sounds. This is very difficult as every time I get an email/text my phone dings or knocks. I’ve tried many different sounds but she doesn’t like any of them. My new stove timer is a ding. The house is surrounded with dings and dongs. I don’t see how we can get rid of all these sounds in the house….poor baby. What to do??

Comment on Do Some Dogs Need a Shock? by Allen https://shibashake.com/dog/do-some-dogs-need-a-shock#comment-908359 Sat, 28 Mar 2020 09:51:41 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/?p=4382#comment-908359 Different strokes for different folks, I have a Labrador and a Siberian Husky with some pure wolf genes in him, I use the shock function from time to time for his aggressive behavior.

However, not just the shock is used, I’ve implied with a lot of different and very unique training methods on the wolf-husky hybrid. Some dogs with aggressive injuring causing behavior might very well need to use the shock function to be corrected, as well as a similar training method that I’ve done in the military.

I have very successful and well-behaved Husky that I can allow him to walk leash-free, he is only 3 years old. People often asked me, how do you train an animal that has wolf gene in him, I said, “If people can train a tiger in the circus, I’m sure I can change the personality for my Husky-Wolf pup.

My Labrador on another hand never needs shock function, the only vibration is good enough.

Again, like kids, and humans, that why kids have boot camps, correctional facilities, and special needs schools for aggressive children in this sociality.

Comment on Puppy Obedience Training – How to Care for a Puppy by BraverThanEver https://shibashake.com/dog/puppy-obedience-training/comment-page-2#comment-905673 Mon, 02 Mar 2020 01:18:53 +0000 http://shibashake.com/dog/puppy-training-tips-and-advice#comment-905673 Dear New Friend,

I have decided to help out and rescue a dog from homelessness (it may be temporary but I hope not). He is 2 years old and MASSIVE. He acts like a puppy, in that he wants love all the time and has been so good about not chewing or being bad in the yard. He shows potential to be trained and learns quite fast. He is already playing soccer and fetching. He has also learned to drop the ball and back off (so now I can pick it up without being afraid he will dive in for my hand). His jaws are massive so keep that in mind while you read the rest because I think that is my biggest fear. I know in another article you mentioned you had to adjust your fear because your Shiba would at most cause puncture wounds, but I am pretty sure this dog could dislocate and maul my hand. Augh so scary. But regardless, within 2 days he has started trusting me, even enough to take a shower in a closed walk-in shower (he was full of fleas but was a trooper who allowed me to clean him as much as possible without giving me a hard time). He puts his heads between my legs when he is uncomfortable so I have learned to take that as a sign to slow down. He is bigger than any dog I remember having as a kid. I was told I had bigger dogs but I wasn’t in control of training them. So naturally, I am terrified. I have another dog in the house who has been with us for 7 years. She is a rescue and honestly an angel. We got so lucky with her as she shows all the positive traits of a JRT but is extremely mellow and independent (in a good way, not annoying at all and sometimes we even forget where she is in a room because she is so quietly sitting in her bed). I am terrified of letting the two get close to each other because I have nightmares that the big one will crush my JRT or catch hold of her in his mouth. I do not know what I will do in that situation and it may be the reason I have to take the dog to the pound. I don’t want to do that and I want to be strong. The new dog accepts me as alpha. He listens but sometimes he will wander off to test his limits and then come back. I think a leash with a lead on it will be really helpful here so I am going to try that. He has a tendency to open his mouth and try to rest his teeth on different surfaces but I am trying to adjust that. I was thinking that if I started with objects that I didn’t want him to bite and use keywords, he won’t show aggression towards my other dog. He has barked twice at her but both times his tail was wagging and when she is on the other side of the glass door, he whines. I don’t want to mistake this as him wanting to play and then we have a terrible experience. I was wondering when are usually times that you justify using time-out for him. I could send him out to the patio but I don’t want him to think he is able to go outside and get the wrong idea. I’d rather it be a very boring room in my house with no interaction. He is getting attached to me so I would like to keep him and train him, but I am not used to a dog of this size. Any tips or resources? He really does act like a child and I do want to try. I hope that counts for something. I am heart broken as to how his previous owners left him in the back yard for days without food or even a blanket. Is it possible to train a dog like this? This big? He is a Blue Heller mixed with JRT I believe or a Boingle?

Comment on 3 Legged Dog Care, Tripod Dog Care by Amber Jones https://shibashake.com/dog/three-legged-dog-care-tripod-dog-care/comment-page-3#comment-902190 Fri, 14 Feb 2020 20:39:40 +0000 http://www.shibashake.com/dog/three-legged-dog-care-tripod-dog-care#comment-902190 Hi there. I just applied to adopt a 2-3 yr old chihuahua that recently had a leg amputated due to deformity. I am curious how pet insurance takes into account a tripod for insuring and how it is determined that X claim isn’t related to issues with being a tripod. Obviously, something like Cushing disease (which I know about all too well with the recent passing of our 13 year old min pin, Scout) isn’t tripod related, but something like torn ACL, or a back issue, etc. How do these things play into insuring a tripod? Being special needs does not scare me. My Scout became special needs in his last 2 years, and I’d continue fighting every battle by his side for another 100 years if life allowed such. But when I got his insurance, he had no health issues so it was easy to figure out. With pre-existing conditions not being covered, I’m curious how it works.
