Question by Casper: Converting from inside to outside dogs. Opinions on the best way to do this?
I have a great pyrenese/lab mix, and two boston terriers. We were living in a mobile home park, the dogs were not allowed to be outside unless on a leash with me. We just bought a home with a backyard, I really want to be able to let them stay outside during the day, but they are not used to it. Can anyone give me ideas as to the best way to get them used to it?

Answer by mmcrobinson
I would recommend cabling them for awhile so they do not run away.. let them be on the cable while you are there so they know that it is okay…

What is the temperature that a dog should be taken inside during the winter? The dog is a Cacapoo.?

Question by bevinct: What is the temperature that a dog should be taken inside during the winter? The dog is a Cacapoo.?
A dog house has been prepared that is insulated. The front part of the dog house is open, having a flap.

Best answer:

Answer by Melon
I would be bringing the dog in if the temps drop below freezing, or the wind chill makes it feel that cold. But this also depends on if the dog house has any kind of heating, which means you could do a lower temp safely as the dog has a warm place to retreat when too cold.

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.

Answer by Ray
Firstly, I think that you should ask yourself why are they in your home?

They will only go to places where they can find food or warmth.

If you are talking about ants or roaches – then they are just cleaning up your crumbs and scraps that have usually been dropped. When some one bites into a piece of bread or a cookie – very fine crumbs hit the floor etc. What is almost invisible to you is a giant meal to an ant or a cock roach.

For ants you can use chalk or talcum powder and that will stop them from crossing over.

If you are single you can always eat over the sink – as crazy as that sounds (I do it) but if you are a family, you might want to look on the internet for the best solutions.

Some use different poisons to kill the clean up committee – Others come up with alternatives. The poisons seems to be the lazy way out of the problem.

Hope this has been a help.

Recently moved to a new home, how do I stop dog from pooping inside?

Question by . .: Recently moved to a new home, how do I stop dog from pooping inside?
We recently moved to a new home. Our dog (5 yrs old) is previously house broken, but now she keeps pooping in the living room. She has a dog door and goes outside frequently. I have a carpet cleaner which I use on the area after she goes to remove any odors. She only goes when we are gone for an hour to the store or when everyone is sleeping. I’m not sure what else to do. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Best answer:

Answer by Vet Tech
House breaking 101 again!

Relax, this is pretty common when dogs move into a new environment. You need to remind her about being house broken. To keep her from defecating when you are gone/asleep it is in your best interest to use a crate for assistance.

Good luck!

How to train my dog to pee outside and not inside?

Lodging for your pets
Question by kwelch3930: How to train my dog to pee outside and not inside?
I just brought home a dog who is 1 year old.
He seems to eliminate when I am not watching him throughout the house but also will not when I am with him.

What is the best way to train my dog to pee outside and not inside?
When he goes inside, should I make sure he knows what he did wrong then crate him?
Also, should he sleep in his crate?
Should I put him in there to go to sleep even though he refuses?
Or should I let him be free but confined to my room?

Best answer:

Answer by Autumn
If you just brought this dog home he doesn’t know where he should pee until you teach him. He’s in a strange house with a person he doesn’t know and he knows nothing about what is expected of him.

Take him outside every 2 hours and praise him when he eliminates outside. Don’t correct him for peeing inside at the moment. He’s lost and confused and probably frightened.

If he keeps having accidents inside, that means you are not taking him out often enough.

Never use the crate for punishment. You want the crate to be the dog’s own safe place and it won’t be if you use it to punish him.

ADD: Don’t use pee pads, he is 1 year old and pee pads teach a dog it’s ok to pee inside the house. You don’t want your your smelling of dog pee.

I would put an article of clothing that has your scent in his crate and encourage him to go in there to sleep. I wouldn’t force the issue and neither would I close the crate door. He’ll learn to love his crate if he can go in there whenever he wants to.

Fresh clean water should be made available to the dog 24/7. Never take up his water bowl. It’s not necessary and dogs don’t drink when they’re sleeping anyway.
