Hi.My Name is Rachel, and I'm needing advice as to what dog would best suit me. I have a physical disability, I can walk and drive a car. I use crutches when I'm outdoors, but when I'm at home a I can walk around without them. I wear a caliper on my left leg. I have always wanted to have a dog as a companion, but I am not sure what breed would be best. My activity levels are ok, but I couldn't say that I am able to go for long walks. I have a park across from me, that is dog friendly. I live alone now, and I am 52. I hope someone can help me.SincerelyRachel Simpson
Our dog has a phobia of the heating system clicking on and off. It's gotten to the stage where he won't enter the lounge (where the noise is most audible) & sit with us, something he loves doing, he just stands shaking in kitchen. I've looked at a few things like a calming spray, collar etc but I'm just not sure what would be best. Any advice
My female neutered cat is 1 1/2 years old. I adopted her from an RSPCA shelter and she's strictly an indoor only cat. When a neighbourhood cat is at the back courtyard, my cat will actively pursue looking at the other cat out of the glass sliding doors while yowling very loudly. Sometimes her tail fluffs up. On one occasion she ended up launching herself at the door, yowling and hissing. I tried spraying her with water and she took no notice and continued on. This behaviour stops when the other cat is out of sight and wanders off. I have searched online for information. I thought maybe the other cat is romantically interested but she is spayed so I don't understand why they would pursue her? I thought maybe she wants a friend to play with but the hissing and fluffed tail suggests she's fearful or asserting herself as the boss of her territory. If my cat is afraid or uncomfortable though then why does she actively follow the cat and pursue it as long as it's in eye sight? If it wanders away, she'll run to the other room and keep yowling. I thought it was Tom cats instigating this and stirring her up but the last occasion I hardly heard a noise from the other cat outside who looked interested but confused about what was happening. Is there anything I can do about this? Should I be concerned?
My 11 month old Corgi gets very nervous when we leave the house. He barks when anyone leaves and starts whimpering as soon as he thinks someone is about to leave. He is a very happy dog, very affectionate anf playful but his behaviour is very strange when we walk out the door. He can also be quite destructive when we leave, and looks very guilty when we get home. He hates getting into trouble but will do it all over the following day.

our golden retriever has been suffering from fleas for a while and we have found a treatment that works but he gets them back within a couple of weeks is there any way to find out where he is getting them from and a better way to keep them off him other then the bath with the treatment shampoo?
My dominant cat lily lets my other cat rose attack her. Lily is a muscular little tabby where my other cat Rose is a lanky oriental. They get along most of the time (ignore eachother but like to be close to eachother) but then they have all out war. I know the tabby is dominant because when she smacks the oriental the oriental cowers for days under a bed and is terrified of her sister. I don't understand why the tabby lets the oriental attack her though. It gets screetchy and very loud and is usually in the middle of the night.
