Kota is an (almost) 19 month old husky living in Minnesota. He's pretty lazy because we can't run him as much as we should. For as long as I can remember having him he's always panted a lot. Of course he would when we take him to the park and on walks, but he also does it when he hasn't done any sort of physical activity (like sitting around in the house). For example we could be sitting on the couch together and he would just be slowly panting. It wasn't fast or rough. But for clarification its not CONSTANT but it does happen a lot. For a while I thought it was cute because it seemed relaxing (if that makes sense) but now it sort of worries me. We're just getting into the colder months here so there's even less of a reason why he should be doing it so frequently. Is it the temperature of our house (it's usually around 70° F)? Is it because he pulls too much on walks and hurts himself? Can anyone help? We're still pretty new to being husky owners so anything is appreciated!!
Hello everyone! So, Aurora is now 4 1/2 months old. Ever since we picked her up at 7 weeks, she has been exposed to our Snow Bengal cat, Nova. Nova also has been exposed to dogs, she is a year and a half years old and grew up with two Pomeranians. Aurora isn't mean or aggressive towards her, BUT she plays a little too rough and bites Nova's neck and doesn't understand she could hurt her. Nova doesn't typically fight back unless she is trying to sleep and is annoyed with Aurora's nipping and hitting.. Any advice on how to get Aurora to play nicer with her? I know since she's a puppy she will just want to play, but I'm not sure if there is any way I can get her to realize she's much bigger than Nova and needs to be easy with her. So that way they get along well when Aurora is an adult. Thanks y'all!
Hi everyone, I have a quick question, wasn't sure if it should be here or in the health section so if it was supposed to be elsewhere let me know Champ seems to have very vivid dreams, at least I think they're dreams, I'm not sure as sometimes his eyes are kind of open but you can't see his irises. He twitches and makes small noises, and the first time he started doing it I thought maybe he was having a seizure so I said his name kind of loud but he responded right away, sat up and looked at me with this confused expression on his face. He was just doing it again while lying on the couch next to me and all I had to do was reach over and touch him to get him to wake up. Is it normal for him to dream like that with his eyes partially open or is he having some sort of seizure? I've asked a couple of friends who have owned dogs for a while and they just say to keep an eye on him because if he's just having really vivid dreams he has the potential to wake up and plow into a wall thinking he's actually chasing something...
