How do I say the dog command “Go potty!” in French?

Question by ari_1965: How do I say the dog command “Go potty!” in French?
My college French classes didn’t cover this! My dog walker uses the command “Go potty!” to tell dogs to urinate/defecate outside. I would like to say this in French to my dog, who is a Belgian Malinois. Thank you.

Lucky Dog for a day

No, this isn’t my normal job with Aaron’s. The guy who normally is Lucky Dog was unavailable last night for game 6 of the NBA playoffs between the Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics. Aaron’s is a big sponsor of the Hawks so it was important the Lucky Dog make an appearance. Word got around that I had been a mascot in a former life, so Aaron’s gave me the opportunity to step into the suit again.The crowd was incredible, Phillips Arena was rockin’ and I got to see the Hawks push the Celtics to game 7 in a series where Boston was expected to sweep them going in.
Good times.

Adopting a Dog the Right Way

Adopting a Dog the Right Way

Many people are becoming more aware about puppy mills. In case you do not know all of the details, the majority of puppies in pet stores are obtained from puppy mills. These are basically factories that force breeding and “make” dogs just like a factory that makes TV’s or curtains or any other product. Dogs are stacked on top of one another and live in horrible conditions until brought to a pet store where you will pay huge amounts of money. Your money then helps keep the puppy mills going. For this reason, many more people are adopting dogs.

It is not true that dogs in rescues or shelters are “bad” dogs. Most are sad. Most have had a rather difficult life. Most have been abandoned. They are simply waiting for someone to love them. So, if you are considering adopting a dog, that is wonderful! Just ask some questions first so that all goes well.

Adopting a dog is a commitment; akin to adopting a child if you think about it. You will be responsible for feeding your dog, making sure your dog is happy and comfortable, bringing your dog to the vet for regular checkups, being there if the dog is ever ill, providing a healthy living environment with fun and exercise and giving humane punishment when the dog needs to learn something. We stress the world humane, as in firmly saying “no” and other training techniques.

So, let’s make sure you adopt the dog that fits you and your family.

As you family or yourself if you are living alone what type of dog you wish for. What age? Size? Gender? Are you open to several different breeds? Does breed matter at all? Will you be happy with a hyper dog? A relaxed one? Know what you want before you want into the doorway of a shelter or animal rescue.

Then, it is time to ask the shelter or animal rescue workers some questions. Do not be shy!

What do they know about the dog’s history? Is the dog afraid of people? If so, no worries, your love can slowly fix that. Ask his age and what breed he is. Ask if the dog has been spayed or neutered. Most rescues have this done before adopting out. If not, this will be one of your first priorites if adopting that dog. Is the dog housebroken? If not, no worries, you can house break a dog by following simple instructions for this. You may ask what the dog’s personality is like, but remember, the dog is going to act much different in a lonely shelter where the dog is afraid and has no idea what is happening as he is going to act once in a peaceful and loving home.

If deciding to adopt, get a complete medical history. This is important regarding heartworm prevention, vaccinations, etc. Ask if they reccomend a certain vet, if you do not know which one you will be using.

Finally, in the rare case the adoption does not work out, ask out this. Will they take the dog back? Ask for something in writing. Now, it is time to go out there and find a sad dog that is silently crying out for a human to love him.

Dog Health Care Article: Male Dog Neutering And Female Dog Spaying: When Should It Be Done?

Dog Health Care Article: Male Dog Neutering And Female Dog Spaying: When Should It Be Done?

Every year thousands and thousands of cats and dogs are euthanized because they lack a home and family to adopt them. We humans are to blame for this situation. Every year the newspapers are full of articles submitted by the S.P.C.A. relating to the number of animals they have had to kill.

As responsible pet owners we have to make the decision whether or not we want to contribute to the problem or do our part to keep unwanted pets out of the shelters and off the streets. So when do we need to neuter or spay the animals? We need to decide by the time our pet is 6 to 8 months old whether or not to sterilize him/her.

Being a responsible breeder is no easy task and there is no profit to be made. Breeding is done strictly for the betterment and continuation of the breed. The costs of the stud service, the buying or making of a whelping box, the veterinarian bill for the care of the mother dog, possible fees for delivering the pups, puppy food, veterinarian checkups for the puppies, eye exams, worming, fees for docking of the tails, vaccinations, etc., etc., quickly eat up any profits to be made. Then there are the countless sleepless nights waiting for the moment of birth, worrying about the newborn puppies, the noise from yelping puppies keeping you awake. It’s simply a labor of love for a responsible breeder.

Whether or not you have a mixed breed or a purebred dog you need to take the precaution so that accidental breedings do not happen. If you have an unspayed female dog you dog will every 6 to 10 months go into heat that lasts about 3 weeks. A heat is also known as an oestrus period. During this time the female will have menses or a period, where she will secrete blood from her vagina. This is a messy situation for a house pet. There are protective garments that may be purchased to contain the mess, but also help deter unwelcome entry from male dogs. Also during this time your dogs behaviour may change and she will be less obedient.

Unsterilized (un-neutered) male dogs can become aggressive and may show overt sexual behaviour when there are in-season females nearby. The male dogs will mark territory in the neighbourhood or in the home by urinating small amounts. Adolescence, is a trying period. Your male dog and you will likely have confrontations over whom is the alpha personality. Now is the time to remember, that you love your dog, but you are the master.

To spay a female dog, a veterinarian removes it’s uterus and ovaries. A male dog is neutered when the veterinarian removes the dog’s testicles. Both operations are usually safe and require one nights stay at the clinic.

The benefits to sterilizing your dog not only include unwanted off-spring, avoiding temperment problems, but also can benefit your dogs health. Having your pet sterilized will decrease the risk of developing tumors in the genital area. Males can develop problems with the prostate gland. Females can develop problems with the mamary glands. Consult your veterinarian before your pet becomes 6 months old. Take a trip to your local S.P.C.A. and take a look at all the homeless cats and dogs before you decide to leave your pet unsterilized.
