There are some breeds that have the tendency to bark a lot - mostly guarding and herding breeds, but also many smaller breeds categorized as "toy breeds". Dog breeds that bark a lot include: Beagle, Chihuahua, Pomeranian, Siberian Husky, Yorkshire Terrier, West Highland White Terrier (and most other terriers), Border Collie, German Shepherd, ...

It is indeed a moan and is part of the natural range of vocalizations a dog uses. It can mean pretty much exactly what a human moan means. Some examples: Content at stretching after waking up Content at having that annoying itch scratched Content at laying down in a comfortable position Annoyance at being woken up Annoyance at being hugged too tightly As ...

This is a difficult situation and it may take some time for a solution to work. The first and most important question is: Why does your dog bark? Is there a jogger or a dog running around? Are there rodents or other animals in / under your house or in your roof that trigger her? Does she try to get your attention because he needs to pee? First try finding ...

It is part personality and partly experiences,if a cat talks a lot you will talk back this makes the cat talk even more so it is a self enforcing behaviour. A cat that suddenly gets more vocal can be a sign of medical problems like pain or neurological problems like senility or eyesight/hearing problems. Some cats starts to talk more as they get older ...

The way I see it, the dog has a different understanding of his position and role in your little community than you or your flatmates have. Let's call the owner of this dog "Bob". You think: The dog is Bob's property and his responsibility The dog lives primarily in Bob's room and only ventures into your room occasionally You have nothing to do with the ...

Have you established WHY your dog is barking? Is it anxiety, overstimulation, boredom? Is it barrier rage, territorial? Is it barking AT people/animals, or just kind of yelling at nothing? You need to figure out the why--the fix is entirely dependant on that. If your dog is food motivated, you might consider mixing some peanut butter or sweet potato puree ...

Alright, so we checked him up again with another vet. After physically examining him, Dr. told us he is good. It might be because summer has arrived he is eating less food (I have checked online and it is true). And about his chirping/meowing, because it is summer, many insects started coming inside the house, which gets him excited! After observing him for ...

At 7 months of age the socialization phase has ended, but your dog is still young and able to adapt his behavior. But I strongly suggest you hurry with the training because the longer you wait the harder it will become. What you describe sounds like a textbook example of insecure behavior. Whenever your dog encounters something unknown, he doesn't know how ...

Labradors and retrievers are not really barking dogs. Keep in mind no matter what breed you get, they all have the instinct to bark. Some more than others, it just depends on their personality. My boxer doesn’t bark much. My English bulldog does as a guard dog and my boxer bulldog mix doesn’t bark much at all.

The solution was to: Keep it busy (aka quiet), when possible, by: Letting it sit on people. Be around other pets. Tire it out via a mouse-on-a-stick toy. When the above is not possible, put the cat in a room that is out of earshot (with all the amenities, of course). The cat will yell as much as it needs to, without driving people insane. Eventually, the ...

I have a King Charles Cavalier, and he does not let out a peep! They are very easy to train, easy to groom (if you cut them short), and keep that little puppy look through adulthood (just grow bigger.) He is a very handsome man but is not generally a playful dog.

It isn't surprising that your bird is upset, since she's still very young and is in a completely new place without her previous family. I've had new cockatiels who screamed when they were new to my home. It takes a lot of time, patience and--especially--attention while she builds a bond with you and feels secure in knowing that you will not leave her. The ...

The way I understand, you have her for only a few days / weeks. That is usually too short for the bird to learn to trust you and befriend you. On the other hand (if the video is with your bird, not something random from the net) the bird is actually trying to communicate with you. If you do not understand whatever she is saying, it is your problem :) Joke ...

Your dog might want some company and may want to play with you or want to go on a walk. Dogs have feelings and he probably doesn't like it that he is alone a lot of the time. Even if she has toys try and at least take her out of the park and maybe make her catch a ball or something that will make her better.

You describe different situations where she growls and each one could be caused by a different reason. It could also be that all are casued by the same reason, so the best action would be going to puppy class and learning. You need to learn how she reacts in different situations and she needs to learn which kind of behavior is acceptable in different ...
