Husky Dog Plus Head Massager Equals Cutesplosion

Filed under: Cuteness!DogAwwwwwFunnyHusky

This husky dog loooooves getting his head scratched!

This is the cutest, friendliest, happiest looking husky!

His owner clearly knows how good those metal wire head massagers feel, so he probably figured he'd give his doggy a little treat.

This dog seems a little wary at first, ducking around the scary metal spider device.

Which is pretty normal for any dog around any weird object, but eventually the owner starts scratching and this dog immediately realizes this is a very VERY good device.

He quickly relaxes and starts just loving the head scratching until he gives the camera the biggest, cutest dog smile we've ever seen.

Good gravy this dog is super adorable!

We love huskies!! They're the best things everrrrr!

Check out the video to witness pure, uncut dog joy… AFTER THE JUMP!!!

No, it's not some funny play on words where the dog is scratching and pawing at a record with his claws.

This dog is totally scratching the record!

If he played a show we would totally go.

His stage name should be Deadpug5.

Q & A: Cats Won't Stop Scratching

Filed under: Q&AAdoptionCatDr. Patrick Mahaney

Cats can be great pets… when they're not scratching everything in sight.

TeddyHilton.com reader, Janet, wrote in to Dr. Patrick Mahaney, asking:

Hello,

My boyfriend and I have adopted 2 super sweet kittens and they've been with us for a year now. They're brother and sister and are really friendly and really sweet. The problem is that they scratch at the foot of every closed door in my place wanting to get in.

I leave all the doors open but whenever somebody is in the bathroom, they scratch at the foot of the door, tearing our carpet, door frames and thresholds to bits. We try to train them by spraying them with water (lightly of course) whenever we see them doing this but that only stops them for the moment.

I've bought small rugs to put in every threshold (which doesn't look very nice) to avoid furthur damage but it hasn't stopped our furry friends from attacking the rugs as well. What can I do to stop this behavior? Thank you for your help.

Janet Antepara,

Dr. Patrick responded:

Janet,

Thank you for your question, which is actually a common and frustrating scenario for many cat owners. There are a variety of reasons your cats may be scratching on the floor by the doors besides their burning desire to be close to you, their beloved owners.

Cats scratch to mark their territory (both from a visual sense and with pheromones), for exercise, and to remove dead nail tissue (akin to a nail file).

Give your cats an enticing place to scratch in every room of your house where they have scratched at the base of the door. The scratching posts should be vertical and higher than other objects in the room on which they could scratch (like the side of your couch).

You can purchase a commercial sisel rope and/or carpet style encased post or if you are a DIY kind of gal, then make it yourself. Rub fresh or dried catnip on the scratching posts to attract your feline friend and send them into a blissful scratching spree.

Hopefully, by giving your cats enough options for where they should scratch, they will be dissuaded from tearing up the carpets and driving you crazy!

Good luck,
Dr PM

Q & A: Aggressive On The Leash

Filed under: Q&ADogTipsDr. Patrick Mahaney

TeddyHilton.com reader, Susan, wrote to Dr. Patrick Mahaney:

Hello!!!!

I have two dogs that seem to be leash aggressive. My golden is easier to “control” but my 7 lb Chihuahua, Tiger, is a psycho handful when we just go out to go potty at my apartment!!

HELP!! She scratches me to pieces!! It’s like I have a cat!! They do awesome in a dog park, just seems to be on leash at "home."

Thanks!!!!!

Susan Misegadis, Aly & Tiger

Dr. Patrick responded:

Susan,

Thank you for your question submission to TeddyHilton.com.

Having a multipet household can be very challenging when it comes to correcting behavior in a dog, cat, or other companion animal.

As many dogs see their owner as part of their canine family, if not their pack leader, they often will show their protective side while walking on a leash.

Try to redirect your Tiger's attention onto a stimulus besides that which is causing him to become so worked up. A favorite squeaky toy or food treat can provide a nice distraction from the distractions of your neighborhood. Positive reinforcement for Tiger's focusing on a desired object (instead of scratching you to pieces) can help him to realize that his perceptions of the offending circumstance should merely be ignored.

Considering the magnitude of the circumstance as you describe, I suggest having an examination with your veterinarian to rule out any potentially contributing health problems. If Tiger gets a clean bill of health, then consult with a Diplomate of the College of Veterinary Behaviorists (see http://www.dacvb.org/) to help you learn the best management techniques for your pet's unique situation.

Good luck and feel free to connect to me further via my website, www.patrickmahaney.com.
