Question by Felidire ♂: Does allowing your bítch to have at least one litter make her “a better dog”?
I’ve overheard THREE people bring this up in different context, in three separate conversations, over the last 2-3 months.

Now I personally think this is a load of bullshít that only contributes to the number of sheltered dogs in the world, as i’ve never noticed a single positive change in behaviour in a female dog that has given birth to a litter; if anything, i’ve only ever noticed negative changes.

Of course, i’m no breeder; but i’m curious to hear what you guys think about this common “belief” that a lot of people seem to carry around. Does “allowing your house pet to have one litter BEFORE getting her spayed” make her “a better dog” temperament-wise?
Temperament aside, waiting until after the first or second heat cycle is the best option for the long-term health of the dog.

I don’t breed so I can’t comment on whether or not it makes good or bad behavioural changes.
Wow.. I pulled a topping off of my pizza and found some guy’s eyelash underneath.

Bad karma?

Question by LilSunbeam: My Chihuahua was being fed “human food” and refuses dog food?
Any suggestions on getting him to consider dog food? He has always had people food and no matter how hungry he seems when I give him dog food he refuses it. I have tried soft food in several different brands and flavors. I know human food is not healthy for him but if it’s what he is used to what can I do to change it? He is two and a half. Thanks.

Try giving him dog food mixed with people food starting with more people food then slowly shifting to more dog food.

Hopefully eventually you’ll get him to eat all dog food.
