"Thanks again for all the answers I got here. I do appreciate it !
Just arrived from the vet, and after what she saw in my dog now the conclusion was : recommended castration. So it looks like we are heading that way. I will give it one more week to…"
"Your vet may be on Thor's payroll ;-)

"Jess, no worries mate, none taken. I understand what you say and I know unexperienced people can easily let the dog be the alfa. It is not the case as I am rather strict with the dog, and I see the dog as a dog not as a "kid". He is…"
I have a similar situation with a dog I adopted 5 years ago to help my daughter overcome fear of dogs (all of our friends and neighbors had dogs at the time and our girl could not be around them). My amateur "dog exposure"…"
"Thanks for your answer. You reminded me something that I forgot. He is at the end Rhodesian mixed. When I got the dog I did read a bunch about the breed but I forgot about it.
Regarding the kids, I will never expect him to like kids, I hope I…"
"You've got a difficult dog. Lots of abuse when he was young, which I understand is hard for dogs to get over. Then, on top of that, he's a Ridgeback. They are great dogs (I had a Ridgeback/Shepherd mix for about 10…"
"I kind of feel that like this I loose the whole purpose of having a dog and creates an extra stress for myself. I don´t want to have a separate from my life dog experience but rather have the dog experience integrated in my life, if you…"
"I agree totally with you. I avoid the dog park when there are males there. I avoid having kids around my dog as well. I can´t avoid having friends. I can´t avoid having the dog coming in contacts with humans. "
"He destroyed the things when we left him alone. We left him alone 2 months ago for 5 hours and all went fine( I had a camera in the room and he slept trough. We left him alone 1 month ago, less than 1 hour and he destroyed things. Puzzles me why 2…"
"Hi Will ! Thanks for your answer. The dog is not alone in the day too much at the moment. The main problem is that it starts to be aggressive with other dogs and people. Our guests can´t move in the house as the dog starts barking. My goal is…"
Hello ! My name is Mihai and I have a rather pressing issue. My "man´s best friend" is acting weird lately and I hope that someone in here can help me with some advices. It is an unusual situation as you will soon see :- I never had a dog in my life - last year I moved to Mozambique ( I am Romanian ) and been there for one full year- I adopted a dog, it was 3 months old when I got it, and was in a pretty bad shape. Full of ticks and fleas, had his tail broken, abused, scared of everything,…See More

"In some ways you are where I was in 1975. Mom was killed in a car wreck when I was 13, and dad died 10 months later of a heart attack (his heart was broken by her death). I felt alone, but never allowed myself time to grieve. Sure, I grieved for a…"
"John C: "Most people can't live with that kind of uncertainty..."
Indeed. Vast numbers of folks crave structure in their lives. Uncertainty discomfits them, which is often quite the opposite of disbelievers: uncertainty and new…"
"You've misunderstood me if you think I'm making any claim at all. My mind is open to all possibilities and waiting for proof. We learn more about the universe all the time, and we'll never know for sure, but the process required an…"
