This Month’s Dog Q & A

Question: Dog Cruelty & Injured Pets - Questions from a California Dog Owner

“I know of two possible times of animal cruelty where the dogs have been abused by the owner by kicking, beating with a belt, under-feeding, etc. This really disturbs me as I have always loved animals. I need to take some kind of action if I knew what I could do. I know that the Humane Society might not be of much help in this type of situation, and if they were, might take similar steps to that of the pound. So therefore, I do not believe the dogs would be much better off.”

“My second question is about injured animals. What can I do one sees an injured animal along side the road? Once again, I would love to help but have heard so much about how the city likes to throw animals into pounds and how they fail to treat injured dogs and cats. Do you have any advice on how a person should handle a situation like this?”

How to Deal with Puppy Biting

December 3, 2008 by sandor.fagyal

If you've just bought or adopted a puppy, know that one day, the "Biting Phase" will start. They're gonna grow sharp little teeth that make you yelp when they chomp down. Don't worry! They never bite hard, and are just testing their teeth.

Puppy Biting


However, it is very important to know how to react when puppies bite you. Always yelp or cry out if pains and put your puppy down for a few minutes. It's important that the little fellow realizes that it's not really acceptable to bite family members hard, and not acceptable to bite non family members at all.

Never whack your puppy if they bite you since I really feel they won't understand why you're doing that. If you find that your dog is biting or damaging the furniture, you can get certain non toxic substances from your local pet store that creates a bitter taste that makes furniture unattractive to the puppy.

Puppies will grow out of the biting phase in time. When their teeth are growing, it relieves them to chomp down on something. Till then, try and even enjoy this phase! When your dog is old, you'll remember the time he used to tug on your jeans with this his wagging.
