Question by killmrmanson: What do dogs do when the family is there?
I always wondered. Okay lets say the dog is well and its not hungry or anything and everyone is home with the dog but they’re not doing anything, So what does the dog do the whole time?

Best answer:

Answer by Erica – So many bunny huggers, so little time!
Mine usually sleeps, plays with his toys, plays with us, etc… Not really sure I understand the question, lol, we normally don’t do much of anything, and neither does the dog unless he’s outside, etc… Or do you mean if someone had family visiting them?

Q&A: How can my husband and I reintroduce our 3 yr old dog to our family?

Question by Nicolette: How can my husband and I reintroduce our 3 yr old dog to our family?
Two years ago my husband, my son and myself had a very tight bond with our pitbull named Winter. She was very sweet and well behaved, house trained and playful. She was excellent with our 6 month old son, she allowed him to touch her face (muzzle, eyes and ears). She was not food aggressive or toy possessive or overly protective. Living in NYC made her very energetic, however.

I say WAS because a year and a half ago my family moved to South Carolina and because we were not yet established in a home that accepted dogs, Winter has stayed with a family friend as an outside dog. Our son (2 and a half years) seems to have lost the connection with Winter and she herself seems stressed by both the move and the fact that she has been away from my husband.

Is there a safe way (and with minimal stress) to re-introduce our dog to both our toddler, our new house and our family without overbearing both her and the family?

What would you do IF you came home and your family pets had changed places?

Question by Brenda: What would you do IF you came home and your family pets had changed places?
If you left to go somewhere and had the family cat inside and the dog outside and upon your arrival home you discovered the exact opposite: the dog was inside and the cat was inside. No one else has access to your home….as far as you know. What would you think? What would you do?

Best answer:

Answer by Faith D
My mother has a dog that knows how to open sliding glass doors. She has arrived home to find the same situation as you.
Otherwise I would assume that someone had been in my home and let the dog in. My dogs bite so I know that would not happen at my house.

Question by Shannon Davis: Is buying a home that has pets that live inside the home, harmful to my family that have extreme allergies?
The home I am buying has live-in pets (rottweiler and 3 large cages of birds. My family suffers from bad allergies. Is there anything I can do that will remove the all of the allergens? Also, do birds carry anything that would be harmful to my family? For example, parasites?

Best answer:

Answer by Terra
Well birds can carry all differnt germs and a way to remove the allergens would be to atleast clean the house once a week and to make sure you have all of the animal hair etc out so ur family can breath in the house, trut me, my grandma has a cat and my uncle is highly allergic so the only way he could come over was if she cleaned the house once a week and its been a year and well hes been going their.

Question by heatherlea: What is the best home remedy to rid fleas on family pet, in home and yard (with an outside dog next door)?
One family outside/inside dog and one inside family cat. An outside dog next door (doubt being treated) right on the other side of the fence from our family dog kennel. Therefore I need to know how to treat the outside kennel and yard, the inside of the home and the pets.

Best answer:

Answer by Amber
Purchase Frontline!! It works wonders!! And it also lasts for 30 days. Also a pill called “Capstar” which costs about $ 5 from a vet office will kill all fleas on the dog with in 30 minutes! Awesome stuff. DO NOT use Hartz brand or Walmart Flea products, they can cause serious health issues and death in animals!! Lowes should carry products to treat your yard for fleas. But use Capstar and Frontline on your dog and cat!

What is the best carpet for a family room and all seasons room in a home with pets (2 dogs and 3 cats)?

Question by B-Dee: What is the best carpet for a family room and all seasons room in a home with pets (2 dogs and 3 cats)?
The two rooms are connected and will have a fair amount of wear. The all seasons room will lead to the back yard….so it may be similar to a mud room. You will go up a couple of stairs into the family room….that is why I would like the carpeting to be the same. So the rooms won’t be cut up and divided by different carpets. Plus the pets …they are all housebroken but they are a consideration.

Answer by marvin A
whatever carpet you buy also get yourself a Bissell Carpet cleaner along with it. the only way to keep any carpet in these conditions is to clean it regularly. It is not that difficult at all.
