How to Identify Common Pet Problems ?

Wheatens tend to be stubborn and while very intelligent, make poor competitive obedience dogs. They are generally untrustworthy off leash, having the terrier instinct to roam. Like all terriers, they may chew and dig if bored.
This working breed enjoys playing. But Wheaten Terriers will also enjoy cuddling time on the couch as long as they get enough stimulation during playtime.
Soft-coated wheaten terriers` thick coats may get smelly or matted if they go for a long time without a bath. Regular bathing and grooming will help keep them odor-free.
Health. The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, which has a lifespan of 12 to 14 years, suffers from progressive retinal atrophy and canine hip dysplasia.
Alone Time

The Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier becomes attached to her family, and prefers to spend time with them. While you can leave her alone from four to eight hours per day, she needs plenty of exercise due to her high energy level.

How much exercise does a Wheaten Terrier need? The Kennel Club recommends up to an hour of exercise a day for this breed, but they`d definitely thank you for more! They love lots of playing and a good run around.
Soft-coated wheaten terriers are extremely friendly with other animals, including cats. They also socialize well with young children and other household family members.
This dog is very protective of its owner. This dog needs a firm but friendly hand to guide it. This breed loves to interact with people through playtime and exercise. The dog`s soft, silky coat requires quite a lot of grooming.
The coat needs brushing or combing every other day. Bathing and trimming every other month is needed to maintain the correct look. The coat is easier to maintain if it is clipped to about 3″.
You`ve never slept better. All Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier parents know that they love sleeping under the covers with their head on a pillow, just like a human. That warm, fuzzy body is perfect for spooning. You`ve haven`t had a bout of insomnia since your buddy crawled into bed with you for the first time.
Nutritional requirements of a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier

When selecting what to feed your Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, choose a diet with high-quality animal-based protein sources, such as beef, chicken, turkey, lamb, duck, eggs, and fish.

While all dogs are prone to anxiety, especially around strangers and loud noises, some dog breeds have a higher prevalence. Lagotto romagnolos, wheaten terriers, and mixed breed dogs all may have heightened chances of anxious responses.
DON`T stay away too long.

Most experts agree you shouldn`t leave your adult dog alone for more than eight to 10 hours, but some dogs (especially ones with small bladders) can`t last that long.

An intelligent, very active breed, fox terriers are not the best people pleasers. They love to learn, however, and need an outlet for their extreme energy. If left alone too long, they are apt to become destructive, wreaking havoc in your home.
Adult dogs are generally okay on their own for 4-6 hours a day. But, many dogs are good at adapting to being alone for 8-9 hours while you are at work if they are provided with enough space to comfortably move around.
Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers need a great deal of companionship and do not like being left alone for more than a few hours. They tend to express their unhappiness through destructive chewing and barking. If you`re gone much during the day, this is not the breed for you.
When it comes to swimming, the Wheaten Terrier fits into two groups. Some absolutely love water and you can`t keep them out. Others despise water and will not go near it. If your Wheaten Terrier is a swimmer it is an ideal exercise for them.
If you are wondering when do Wheaten Terriers calm down, you are in for a long waitas they often they can retain their puppylike energy and playful enthusiasm until their latter years.
Wheaten Terriers are highly spirited and retain their puppy attitude throughout their lifetime. They are notorious for jumping vigorously and twirling when happy or excited: the “Wheaten greeting.” Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers are great playmates for older children and do well with other dogs.
They have a very gentle temperament and they love other dogs and children. They will play for hours as puppies and they have a lot of spunk, but they are not as aggressive as other terrier breeds when they play, which is why they are great for kids.
Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) is an inherited disease in which the eyes are genetically programmed to go blind. Unfortunately, Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers are a bit more likely than other dogs to have this condition.
Terriers make excellent pets

However, their courage and instinct to hunt also make them excellent guard dogs for your home.

The hair that might interfere with seeing is the hair that grows from the inside lower corner of the eye. Many Wheatens have a sort of cowlick there and the hair sticks up into the normal line of vision.
In fact, they`re generally well-tempered, have hunt in their blood, and are generally affable. The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier traits are certainly make them alert, greeting strangers in any situation, but don`t exert much aggression when confronted with unfamiliar situations.

the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue

Q. We rescued our wheaten Terrier (age unknown) two years ago and over the last few weeks she started peeing in her crate every night. ??
ANSWER : A. I would start by taking a urine sample to be examined by your vet. Could have a urine infection.

Q. Does an indoor cat need to be vaccinated every year?
ANSWER : A. In practice, I recommend a feline combo vaccine every year, but will generally start administering every 3 years once they have had their kitten vaccines and 2 additional yearly vaccines. Rabies, is required yearly by law, and if kept up to date can be good for up to three years also. Based on the age of your cat I would give a yearly feline combo and rabies, and then boost the combo again next year.

Q. I have a chaweenie she only poops inside when let on carpet and poops and pees at night what can I do
ANSWER : A. I always recommend using a crate. Dogs are naturally comfortable and feel safe when they are in a “cave” or an enclosed space. It may take a couple of nights to get used to the crate (i.e. a couple of barking nights) but once a dog is used to its crate, it becomes a safe place, a territory where they feel protected and dominate and one where they also will not soil. The idea is that when you are not with the dog (during the day, at night) the dog goes into the crate. When you come home, or get up, the dog is let out and immediately goes outside to do its business. This way the dog associates the idea that coming out of the crate and going outside right away is the way to do things. It takes some effort on your part, but I promise it works! And if you leave the door to the crate open while you are home, you’ll notice that your dog will even start going into the crate to lay down on their own. It will become their safe place. Stick with it and good luck! 🙂

Q. Are Yorkie Poos alright to be left alone some of the day and are they easily house trained
ANSWER : A. They are not very easily house trained, no. Yorkie’s have small bladders, and tend to drink more than other small breed dogs. Yorkie’s need to be on a very strict pottying schedule. When they’re puppies, they should be brought outside every 30 minutes when they’re out of their crates, and when they are in their crates the “rule of thumb” is one hour per month of age, plus one (until they ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO potty). Crate training is extremely important when it comes to raising a puppy, especially one who has notorious issues with potty training.

I could go over a crate training exercise for you so you can start crate training right away. Crate training is a very SLOW, careful, and positive process. It needs to be handled very delicately to ensure the puppy has a positive experience.

Of course dogs are alright to be left alone some of the day. About as long as the “rule of thumb” allows, and absolutely no longer than 8 hours (as I find that just cruel). Crating ensures dogs safety.

Q. Rescued a dog almost two weeks ago, and now that her kennel cough is gone her personality shines!! No previous training, how should I start?
ANSWER : A. POST FOUR:

After your dog is familiar with the behavior you lured from scratch, and taught to your dog, you can start to use the “no-reward marker” I talked about. What you do is ask the dog to perform the behavior, and if the dog does not perform the behavior, you simply say your no-reward marker (choose one: eh-eh, hey, uh-oh, oops) show them the treat, put it behind your back, and BRIEFLY ignore your dog. Just turn your back for a second or two, before turning back to your dog and saying, “let’s try that again.” When you’re ready to start over with your dog, make sure you move around. If you are repeating the same cue while in the same position, while your dog is in the same position, you are likely to receive the same results. The more you move around, and start fresh, the better your chances are of having your dog listen to your cue the second time around. BIG rewards when they dog it successfully! Lots of praise and treats.

My no-reward marker is “hey.” When my dog does something wrong I say, “hey” and she immediately understands that she needs to offer a different behavior. This is clear to her. I don’t have to say it in a mean way, I simply say, “hey” in a normal tone of voice and she understands what the word means.

Once you’ve built up that connection and communication with your new dog, you can work on all kinds of fun behaviors! I personally enjoy the more zen-like behaviors: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruy9UMcuGh8

I like to teach my dog fun tricks that offer her a “job” to do of sorts like object retrieval: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4iertZSva8

(object retrieval training completed; what it looks like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jx0Dml28FGY)

Scent-games are fun too! Very confidence building. Hide a REALLY smelly treat in a box, and place that box in a line of boxes. Let your dog go in the room while saying something like “search!” or “find it!” and watch them hunt for that smelly treat! Lots of rewards when they find it!

Q. My dog vomited two days ago in her kennel &last night she pee in her kennel. Has been peeing inappriate places.What do you think is wrong with her?
ANSWER : A. Have her seen by your vet to rule out medical causes. To rule out UTI, submit a clean urine sample or have your vet collect a sterile sample for urinalysis and culture. Blood work may be able to diagnose kidney disease or diabetes. Once medical causes have been ruled out, you can focus on behavioral issues. Reinforce crate training (again if necessary). The crate should only be big enough for her to stand, turn around and lay down. She goes out FIRST thing in the morning. Pick a spot outside and wait. No walks until she goes. Praise and reward her when she goes. Afterwards, return her to the crate or place her on a leash on your hip so you can watch for her cues to go. Take up the water 2 hours before bedtime and take her out right before bedtime. Be patient. Be consistent. If she seems stressed or is feeling anxiety, try to determine and reduce or eliminate the offending stimulus. If that isn’t possible, calming pheromone collars or sprays may be effective.

Q. How should I introduce my puppy to her crate?
ANSWER : A. A crate is very useful for making sure your dog is safe during the night while you sleep, for traveling, or for when you have guests, amongst other reasons for crate training. It is important that you slowly introduce your puppy to her crate; do not rush her. Using kibble or a small treat as a lure, place the food item inside the crate so that she will go inside. Close the gate gently, not suddenly, since you do not want the puppy to be frightened. You might also include one of the puppy’s comfort toys and a familiar blanket inside the crate. Gradually increase the puppy’s time inside the crate with the gate latched until she feels at ease going into her crate at your command.

Q. have a boerboel pup it got its first vaccine when it was about 6 wks old I havnt taken it for the 2nd one (15 days due) my pup looks fine is this bad
ANSWER : A. The pup should be seen by a vet for an exam and to continue the vaccine protocol. Puppies require multiple vaccines since maternal antibodies can block or negate the positive effects. Typically, vaccines are started around 7-8 weeks of age and repeated every 4 weeks until 16 weeks of age. One vaccine at 6 weeks of age is likely insufficient to provide protection leaving your pup at risk of serious infection.
