Given the high number of ridiculous mistakes made on a daily, or even hourly basis by these slow-moving, food-sensitive, two legged idiots who are borderline deaf and can't smell a thing... dogs have to be VERY forgiving of their humans' shortcomings and failings.From somehow not hearing the obvious clomp-clomp-clomp footsteps of
Which animals? Which humans?Come on, this is much too broad. Consider for a moment: do you understand human language? All of it? I'd be amazed if you do - I don't think it is remotely possible.Some animals, in frequent contact with
T4A2A, Jen.Addendum: if you can get close enough with the sound not scaring him, an upholstry brush might work. Like anything else, exposing the dog to it in his formative months-getting him familiar with it early on-will allow you to use it later
I'll answer regarding a dog who lived with us the past two months. She was 15, and she would be going home this weekend.She died, Sunday April 23, at 4:08 am. A week before she was going home. Here is her story:Yoko was adopted from

I never believed they would, until a close froend's dog was attacked and eaten.Everything but the ears and the asshole.This was quite a few years ago, and there weren't laws on the books about dangerous dogs, like there are now.We lived in a small community, about half were small vacation homes that were vacant most of the
Dog apparently can discern even pictures of dogs from pictures of any other animal-including humans. In 2013, French researchers tested dogs with a series of photographs on computer screens: 3000 images of dogs of all varieties, and 3000 images of non-dogs. Backgrounds were all uniform

The warm, sunny weather of summer is welcomed by most of us, but it isn't always good news for pets. Heat stress in dogs is a serious issue, and owners need to be aware of the signs of a dog overheating, as well as how to keep their dogs cool and what to do should they become
How do pets (dogs, cats) recognize they are being called by their owner? How is it that they know their name or that they have a name?
Dogs do not recognize or understand their name in the sense that we recognize our own name. For dogs, a call name is nothing more than an auditory stimulus. They learn to respond to this stimulus because such responding is often followed by positive reinforcement of some kind - not just food, but attention, initiation of preferred activities
How long did it take for you to come up with a name for your pet, and what did you end up naming them?
The most recent naming exercise took about two weeks because we - the breeder and I - had to agree on a combination of call name and registered name.The criteria were:1. The name had to reflect the Prince and Princess theme of the litter; 2. The name
How much would you spend on a sick or injured pet before you made the decisions to have that pet put to sleep? What is more important in your decision: your attachment or your financial status?

The latter. "Pet" as a noun dates to the 16th century (from, remarkably, a Scottish Gaelic word meaning "tame animal"). "Pet" as a verb, meaning "treat as a pet" (indulge), dates to about a century later. The sense of "stroke" is fairly recent, really just in the 20th century. "Pat" in that sense dates to the mid

My friend who is a self-professed dog trainer states that giving a dog treats for obeying a command during training is bribery and counter productive. Isn't a reward the best way to reinforce obedience in a dog?
I learned to train my dog under the supervision of a veterinarian who had specialized in animal behavior and held weekend seminars attended by professional animal trainers from all over Germany. She has published many books on animal training. (I have even translated some of them).One of the

please allow me to submit my youngest cat's name for your (dis)approval: Murder.The thing about Murder is that I never meant to keep her. She was the last in a litter of kittens I had rescued and was trying to get adopted and she was not a very nice cat at all.
I often wonder if my dog goes by different names. I call him and he responds to my familiar vocal, human sound. People call him different vocal names if they like him and do not know my vocal calling, and he responds too!. However,

This is an interesting question, and not that easy to answer. Since I'm a dog lover and long-time observer of dogs, I'll try to answer for the dogs on Quora.Actually, I think the best way to approach the question is to turn it around: Do humans think of their dogs as humans or

Foxes are a canid species, a member of the family Canidae, but they definitely have many cat-like characteristics.

Thank you for the A2A.Technically, it is possible to keep a dog on a lacto-vegetarian diet but it is difficult and puts the dog's health at serious risk.Cats are called obligate carnivores because they cannot produce taurine, they have to consume it and the only sources are from animals.

Yes they can. Muslims are allowed to keep a dog as a guard but not as a pet. As such miniature breeds are ruled out. As are breeds that are inactive. Breeds like Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Cane Corsos, or Doberman Pinschers are best. Interaction is required and of course
Dogs have a sense of humor. The two components of this are laughter and an ability to "make-believe".Like the chortling of a baby, dog laughter is one of life's great simple pleasures. The dog's mouth pulls up at the corner, opens and they make a quiet breathy "hahaha" sound, if you don't know what you're looking for
I believe that my dog, an 8–1/2 year old Bull Terrier, understands quite a few words that I say regularly. He know certain commands of course, for example, sit, stay, place, heel, wait.... He also knows our cat's names because he'll go to that cat when I'm speaking to him

Yes, dogs can eat cake. Dogs are omnivores even though technically they are listed as carnivores. They instinctively eat anything edible given the chance. Now whether their body will accept and digest it is another matter. Is it good for them?
As long as they aren't allergic to it, most of the time a dog can and will eat anything without it doing much harm. However there are other things you have to watch out for when feeding your dog "human food" like eggs.
Having had first-hand experience of this I can state categorically that dogs can, will and do eat dog meat. We had run into some trouble with money and could barely afford to feed ourselves, much less our pack of eight dogs, but whatever we managed to scrape together went for dog food, as we could go fishing and catch

Strictly speaking, they see you as part of their colony, which is their extended family. Ideally, they should see you as the Queen (the head female and often the matriarch of all the other cats), just as ideally in a household with dogs, you should be viewed as the Alpha.As others have said, cats don't have a strict social
