Dog Disciplining

Free stock photo of animal, dog, pet, cute

I believe that animals shouldn’t be hit. You can maintain a degree of discipline without hitting a dog. When they come to you as a puppy or an older dog you will need to teach them what’s expected of them. A properly disciplined dog will provide you all their love and attention for years but you need to teach them what’s acceptable behavior.

A firm”NO” is all they need to teach them proper behavior and what you anticipate. No screaming or hitting is needed. After they display a specific behavior that is not acceptable, you will need to get their attention and be firm when you say”NO”. Your dog will learn that every time they do a specific thing they have this alpha (leader of the pack dog) admonishing them. It may take several times for your dog to understand what you want. One day, happily, when they do something that isn’t allowed you can say”NO” and they will usually stop. After a while you may find they no longer exhibit that behavior. They are really intelligent and need more than anything to please you.

When we had our Shelties (male and female), 1 day we arrived home to toilet paper strewn all over the house. I place my hands on my hips and said”Who did so” in a calm voice. It was just toilet paper. They waited until I moved into them and said”OK”. Both dogs ran to me and loved . After about 3 weeks we left the house and intentionally did not shut the bathroom doors. There was no ticker tape parade when we arrived home.

Dogs want entertainment and if you’re not there they will start looking for ways to be entertained. My advice is to maintain several toys out for them to play with when you are away from the house or you can put them in a closed area, or a crate. I prefer letting them have a run of the home and other than the ticker tape parade we never had any more problems. Dogs are different and you will learn what works and what doesn’t.

We lived on a waterway in Florida and many times we would see ducks in our backyard. 1 time I let the dogs outside and saw a Mama duck and babies walking from the water. I spoke to my dogs, Lance and Heather. “Do not go near those ducks” I had their complete attention and I guarantee you they understood what I said. They left the house and went outside but did not go near the ducks. When they were finished with their business I let them indoors and praised them for their own behavior. I knew in my heart they would not hurt the ducks… and they never did!

Always, always praise your dog when they do something right. They’ll learn that this behavior is great and they get praise and hugs for it.

Loving and praising your dogs are going to be a great experience with years of fun and happiness you will both share. They’re truly Fur Babies!

A way to tell who loves you more… your spouse or your dog:

Lock both your wife and your dog in the trunk of a car. Let them remain for 10 minutes. Open the trunk. Learn who loves you more!

Information on moles

Animal Mole Garden Meadow Molehill Blind B

 

It has been found that because their saliva contains a toxin that can paralyze earthworms, moles are able to keep their still living prey for later consumption.

It’s been found that before eating earthworms, moles pull them involving their squeezed paws to force the accumulated earth and dirt out of the worm’s gut.

Moles have a unique ability to construct exclusive underground”larders” for the only purpose of keeping food such as earthworms.

Did you know that researchers have found such larders containing more than a thousand earthworms in them?

Did you know that a mole’s diet primarily consists of earthworms and other small invertebrates found in the soil and also many different nuts?

It’s been found that Moles are able to re-use the oxygen they have inhaled when above ground.

Because moles have the ability to re-use the oxygen they’ve inhaled when above ground, they can survive in low-oxygen environments like underground burrows.

It has been said that Moles are proven to be resistant to high levels of carbon dioxide in comparison to other mammals which are in the world today.

The main reason for moles being resistant to higher levels of carbon dioxide is because their blood has a special and unique sort of haemoglobin protein found in their blood cells.

The bodies of moles are cylindrical in shape to make it effortless for them to not only burrow but to also run via small cylindrical tunnels as well.

Their eyes are quite small and are kept covered just enough so that they can see where yet are moving, tell day from night, as well as kept shielded whilst they are tunneling otherwise they are mostly very poor sighted.

You will find that moles are the dominant members of the mammal family, that’s the Talpidae family in the order of Soricomorpha.

Scientists have noted that The Star-nosed Mole can detect, catch and eat food faster than the human eye could follow that is under 0.3 seconds.

Did you know? White tail deer

White Tailed Doe Deer Water Wildlife Refle

Even if you don’t know what they are, odds are you’ve seen a whitetail deer sometime in your life. They are the most common and widespread deer species on the planet. Their population in North America alone is between 20 and 25 million.

When spooked or threatened, they will raise their tail and run, displaying their white as an alarm.

Like the other species of deer, the whitetail is a herbivore, meaning that they only consume plants. Their diet will change depending on the food that’s available to them in their environment, but typically consists of grass, plants, acorns, fruit, and corn.

The stomach of whitetail is somewhat like a cow in the sense that it has multiple chambers for digestion. By way of instance, when a whitetail consumes and swallows some acorns, they will go to first room where enzymes will start to break down the food before going to another where they’ll be broken down even more until reaching the fourth room where the actual digestion occurs.

If a whitetail remains healthy, they can live 11 to 13 years typically. They do have many predators that actively hunt them out, though.

When a female (doe) is pregnant, she will give birth to 1 to 3 baby deer (fawns). Fawns have the ability to walk at birth and usually have brown with white spotted fur that lets them blend into their surroundings better.

Male deer (called dollars ) grow antlers in the base of the skull every year. Bucks use these antlers to show their strength when they battle other bucks during the mating season. Following the breeding season is over, the dollars testosterone level will drop much, causing them to shed their antlers. When spring comes back around, they will start to grow new antlers which are typically larger and more complex than the ones that were already shed.

Something not many people know is that deer cause more human deaths than any other creature. This is mainly because of automobile accidents involving them. While it may seem inhumane to a, hunting is a excellent way to help regulate their population and reduce the deaths and crop damage due to them.

Whitetail deer are simply beautiful creatures and it is important for us to constantly understand and respect them. Nearly a century ago, they were on the brink of extinction, but with conservation efforts their population has skyrocketed. Let’s take care of our planet and all of the creatures in it.

The flight of the penguins

Close Up Photography of Penguin on Snow

Well adapted to an aquatic lifestyle, penguins are flightless birds. They predominantly live in the southern hemisphere. These birds spend half their lives in water and the other half on land. They swim to be able to catch their prey. Their bodies are well adapted for this purpose. The largest penguin is about 3 feet 7 inches tall and with the smallest species you’ll be only 16 inches tall.

Penguins are extremely good swimmers. When they swim in water it seems as if they are flying in the air. That also serves as the insulation when the birds are in chilly water of the Antarctic. They are well adapted to protect themselves from predators with their black wings and the backs in addition to their white bellies.

When penguins dive into water in search of prey, the smaller ones remain near the surface. They spend only around 2 minutes under water. However, a large one could dive as deep as 565 meters and they are able to spend 22 minutes under water at a stretch. These birds have great hearing that they use for finding their chicks. When it comes to eye sight, they are able to see well in water. With their good eye sight they find prey and avoid predators.

So as to maintain body temperature penguins have the ability to control their blood flow. Also, they huddle together to keep warm several times. They’re so well organized that each member of the pack gets a chance to be in the middle of the pack for a while. When it’s extremely cold, it is the females that go looking for food while males stay away from water.

Throughout the breeding season they make pairs. Most species lay two eggs and the male and the female take turns in incubating the eggs. The only exception is the Emperor penguin in which case the man does the incubation alone.

Penguins are not scared of people but they normally won’t come closer than 3 meters. It could be because they never have to worry about land predators. They’re more vulnerable when they’re in water as predators such as tiger seals often attack them.

Penguin is a flightless bird that’s well adapted to live in the chilly Antarctic regions. They live in flocks and feed on fish. Furthermore, they are highly social birds.

Myths about bats

Bat, Australia, Wildlife, Nature, TreeBats have had a bad reputation for quite a long time. Old tales, books, movies, tv, and publicity have induced individuals to develop misconstrued notions about bats. Would you like mosquitos? Bats do! And they eat all of them so that mosquitos are not eating you at your backyard cookout celebration. Apart from insect control, bats play a major role in our environment. It’s necessary to always respect bats, and understand that they are innocent mammals that only want to survive.

For this reason, it is vital that you don’t ever harm, trap, or kill wild bats. In fact, it is illegal in many states without the proper licenses and permits. If you’re fearful of bats, or possess a misguided perception of them, continue reading to learn some common myths and possibly change your mind about bats once and for all!

Bats Consume Blood

All bat species but one are insectivores or fruit eaters. There’s only one bat species which consume the blood of other animals, and to no surprise, this bat species is known as the Vampire Bat, or Desmodus rotundus. But don’t be confused; Vampire bats don’t kill their host, they just consume enough blood to get a meal. It doesn’t hurt or hurt the host at all (although sometimes their snacks can get infected and cause problems with the host), which normally include livestock animals like horses, cows, and goats.

They are not likely to attack humans and animals, despite what some films have shown you. The only time a bat will strike is if it is rabid with the Rabies virus, or if is it provoked. Provocation will especially cause mother bats to shield their young. This is the reason why pets are typical victims of these attacks. If you find one, don’t touch it or try to move it with something. Keep your distance and call a wildlife removal company!

Bats Are Blind

They aren’t blind at all. In fact, Megachiroptera (tropical fruit bats) have pretty good eye sight as they have a pronounced visual cortex. Even though Microchiroptera have smaller eyes, they can still see just fine. They don’t use echolocation solely to navigate. They mostly use it to hunt for insects.

Armadillo trapping

Armadillo Animal Florida Wildlife Wild ZooThis guide is for controlling nuisance armadillos, why they’re attracted to your yard and proper methods of live animal trapping for them. Armadillos can become a nuisance on your yard and garden in their continuous search for their favorite food source, worms, insect larvae, pupae and other soil pests.

They could have 4 young in a litter and have 1 litter annually.

Armadillos find nesting in stone piles and around trees or shrubs and under slabs perfect. Their burrows are usually15 to 25 feet long and cause extreme damage to tree roots.

The armadillo is fond of digging and rooting in leaf mold and other rich humus material containing high concentrations of insects. They can cause root damage to trees and shrubs by digging.

Indirect control of the armadillo has been proven effective by removing as much of their food source with a turf insecticide. When they are a continuous problem in your garden then grief may be deemed necessary and is effective when done correctly.

Armadillo trapping may be difficult and many distinct factors go into the positioning of the live animal trap what direction it will be traveling, and most importantly, its behavior and reaction to a trap. The right sized trap must be used – rather a large cage trap intended for raccoons and other big animals. Armadillos can be very tough and powerful aniamls so the trap has to be sturdy. The armadillo won’t enter a trap for all sorts of food and you will be more effective at ridding when you are forcing the animal from the trap. They will typically be walking along edges around their burrow.

Animal trap should be placed near the entrance to the den, burrows, or on paths alongside fences and buildings. The Havahart trap can be made more effective by using two long boards on edge to form a funnel that herds the armadillo inside the animal trap. Set the trap along their route and use directional barriers – planks of wood, fences, concrete blocks that will funnel the poor-sighted armadillo to the trap.

You might want to have the trap floor lined with nice inviting dirt to make it even more attractive.

Havahart animal trap could be baited with rotten fruit, such as pears, bananas and apples. Some folks find that a small quantity of ground meat or an egg is effective in some situations. Trapping for Pest control can be a look and learn procedure, not all recommendations work for situation.

Skunk Control

Skunk Wildlife Portrait Walking Striped BlSkunks are usually benign creatures who know to steer clear of people; regrettably, pets and other wildlife will sometimes attack or provoke them with unpleasant results. If you wish to prevent problems with skunks, some of the best methods for how to eliminate a skunk involve avoidance. However, in the event that you currently have this creature living somewhere in your yard, eliminating it can be tricky. Before we talk about how to eliminate a skunk, it’s important to be aware that they carry rabies and you shouldn’t approach them.

Prevention

As scavengers, skunks are likely to consume anything they encounter; so, should they find food on your property, they are very likely to return or even to make a home for themselves. As such, you want to take some time to ensure that garbage is sealed properly and that there are no sources of food in your yard. Never leave pet food outdoors since this will also attract skunks, and likely racoons and other creatures also. Nut, berry, and fruit trees may also attract them, so be sure to walk your lawn and remove any fallen foods.

There are also numerous skunk repellents that will stop them from moving into your lawn. While it may be impossible to get consistent results, bright lights and automatic sprinklers will typically keep skunks away. Otherwise, residential and commercial repellents may also be effective. Pepper sprays work well but must be applied frequently to maintain their effectiveness. Similarly, commercial repellents which can be sprayed through your yard will provide some protection. Finally, skunk barriers are also helpful from preventing skunks from entering your yard. Skunks can’t climb or jump well, but will fit through openings as small as 4 inches, so barriers must be well constructed.

The Way to Get Rid of a Skunk

If you are dealing with a skunk that’s already residing in your yard, it is time to locate its den. It’s best to perform this work at night once the skunk is out foraging in order to avoid being sprayed or bitten by the skunk. Seal up the entrance to the den with whatever you have available, remembering that skunks need only a small opening. It is also possible to wet the skunk den with a hose, as skunks do not like a moist habitat. If these less invasive approaches aren’t effective, you may want to get your hands on some skunk traps. Box skunk traps are small enough that the skunk can’t spray effectively. These traps should be baited with odorous foods such as sardines, tuna, or canned cat food. Once trapped, you need to call animal control to collect and get rid of the skunk.

What type of trap should you get?

Brown Wooden Mouse Trap With Cheese Bait on TopWhen most folks think of mouse traps, they envision the conventional snap traps which must be set and baited. Though this is still an effective alternative lots of people decide to go another route. The adhesive or adhesive trap has become one of the most popular rodent tools, particularly for residential use. Comparing the benefits and drawbacks is a excellent way to determine if the adhesive traps should be considered among the finest rodent tools available.

The first benefit of the type of trap is that they are simple to use. The simple design features a glue board or glue trap that’s a horizontal surface coated with an adhesive. When the mouse rolls the adhesive, it’s immediately trapped and immobilized. This eliminates the risk damaging the trap hoping to place it or of the mouse stealing the bait away. Additionally, since no toxin is used there isn’t any chance of inadvertent poisoning of small children or pets in the home.

The second advantage is they are economical. They are often less expensive than more complicated alternatives without sacrificing efficacy. It has also been shown effective for use against other insects such as scorpions and spiders. Bigger traps have even been known to catch snakes.

The third option is that they are disposable. The ability to easily eliminate this mouse and trap once it’s caught is often not considered until disposal time. The sticky mouse trap features one of the easiest disposal options of bark tools. It is important to note that there is a chance that the mouse may still be alive when discovered.

The last benefit is cleanliness. Adhesive traps use glues made from organic or synthetic substances which are non-toxic to people and sometimes non-toxic to animals as well. This is especially critical in a residential setting with small children or pets. An overlooked cleanliness benefit is that the adhesive also captures any mites which might be traveling on the mice, basically eliminating two pests at the same time.

There are a few drawbacks to using an adhesive trap to take into account. As a result, homeowners will either have to throw the trap and mouse off together or kill the mouse. While killing the mouse while immobilize is simple, lots of folks find it off-putting. The second drawback is that the trap either has to be put where mice frequently travel or will have to be baited.

All in all, the glue mouse trap is among the best rodent tools out there. It is simple to use, inexpensive, effective, and relatively hygienic. While there are several drawbacks to consider that they are minimal compared to potential drawbacks of poisons or more complex traps.

Noises from above

Raccoon Animal Tree Wildlife Wild Mammal FIf you’re hearing noises in your attic such as running, crying and or growling you could have a raccoon or raccoons with babies in your loft or soffet area. If you do have raccoons in your home you will know it, they will drive you nuts! It is baby season for raccoons. There are humane ways remove Raccoons and their babies from your home.

First, let’s address the age old question” There are many telltale signs to understanding that you have a raccoon in your home.

You know the sound your dog makes as it scampers across your hardwood floors? Well put that sound above your head on your bedroom and that’s the noise a grown raccoon makes when he is running through your loft. Now the issue is,is that you only begin hearing that noise when the raccoon or raccoons have been around for a while and have stomped down your insulation enough they are now walking on your rafters.

Especially this time of year you may hear what sounds like a dog fight going on up there. This is because when the female raccoon is getting ready to have her young she kicks out the male. The reason being that the male has no attachment to the babies and will eat them. On the whole, female raccoons are very good mothers and will do anything to protect their young. Anyway after the fight is over do not think they are gone he is she’s not. She might go out for yet another feed before she stays in for almost a week. In that time you could hear panting or moaning in the first night after that she will stay in nurse and keep them warm and safe as the male might still be lurking around she will clean the kitts (infants ) and eat the placenta. One for nutrition, two as too not draw her male or some others into the bloodstream and her babies. After a week of no water and crying babies she’s had enough. She’ll leave and you will hear her leave because she doesn’t care if you hear her any more. Like any girl after having a baby she needs a break and a drink. Problem being that till now YOU haven’t heard the babies crying. Believe me she takes her time coming back. Then she will leave them for a couple hours every night while she goes searching for food and they will cry the whole time. Another problem being that she usually picks the quietest part of your home to have them that is over your bedroom. When she goes out you will stay up.

You will understand the man sitting on your roof or rear porch just hanging around he is looking for a new place to live as he has lost his usefulness. He does not like to work very hard.

Where the female raccoons are sneaky and usually have more than 1 hole, one you can see and one or two escape holes. The male will simply go on your roof and tear your roof vent away and walk in. All they have to do is push on the siding and they’re in. They then use it like a doorway.

Raccoons will also be found in chimneys, particularly in the older homes. This is because in the older homes they ruffed in fireplaces on each floor to allow the main fireplace heat the remainder of the house. This is the best apartment for a female raccoon. It’s a wonderful warm cubby-hole that’s really tough for us to get at. That is until the babies start moving around. Then they all end up sitting on the influenza. If you have seen a dirty cat fishing smell on your fireplace area that’s why. All that will do is create momma mad she’ll get as a number of the babies up to the cubby area as she can and you won’t get her out. All you have realized is smoking out your whole house with that wonderful dirty cat fishy odor. Your wife is going to end up kicking you out.
Trapping takes that raccoon away but doesn’t prevent other raccoons from going in. The main reason that fact is SO important is that female raccoons are very clean. They have their babies above your bedroom and they will do their business above your toilet. That is why when you turn on your bathroom fan you might also smell dirty fishy cat. When she’s looking for a male she’ll do her business on the roof. She will draw any males that are near. So it is possible to live trap all you want but it is not going to solve your problem in the long run. In case you have known anyone who has had a raccoon problem and thought they solved it themselves by buying a trap. They’ll say”Yah trapped a few raccoons last year now I got them back again.” . They don’t have the very same raccoons back. What they have are the males come looking for the females, or the infants that were born there coming to have their own babies.

Second question”How do I get rid of the Raccoons in my attic? The best most effective way to eliminate raccoons from your attic is the following:

Create a one-way-door to match the main hole of the raccoons layer. Because of the way the door is made the raccoon won’t have the ability to open it to return in.

Properly seal up any other holes or areas that she might get back in through.

Cap your vents and chimneys. Which means secure your vents including plumbing stacks at the bottom with heavy gauge mesh that they can’t penetrate but nevertheless allows the vents and chimney to work properly.

Once momma’s out go into the attic and discover the babies if there are any. There are usually anywhere from 2 to 6. Then put them and their nest of insulating material outside where she can take them to their new home. This all needs to be done right. Well you can but you’ll wind up calling me to fix the job! If you don’t do it right she could get spooked and move the babies. The babies could fall down into the wall. Then you will have at best three days to find those babies before they die on your walls. Then you would like to see an angry animal watch out. Momma will rip the siding directly off the side of your home to get at them!

Once the raccoon and her babies are outside you will access the harm that your unwanted tenants have caused. Problem being while the feminine is very clean. The male and babies are not. When momma goes out the infants will chew on anything is available,wiring, rafters. They teethe just like real babies. So we check to make sure that your wiring is undamaged. That there is no structural damage and the insulation hasn’t been to badly stomped.

If everything checks out you may disinfect the attic space to remove the female scent and odour. So you won’t have some other visitors.

If insulation is damaged it’s going to need to be removed, disinfected and replaced with blown in R75 insulation. The raccoons don’t like it. You will when you get your next heating bill.
I can’t stress enough to leave the entire process to the professionals. It isn’t as easy as it sounds and your constantly run the risk of another raccoon hiding in the rafters. Ladies will nest together. This will give you a guideline as to what a professional should do. So you can make an informed discussion when employing an Animal Removal Company to help you with your problem.
