Sry i cant tel l you brands an stuff, but i would reccomend an electric fence- my neighbors have one for their dog and its great! Thier dog is big and scary haha so ik he wont be crossing into my yard. After they are trained, the fences are awsome, becuase u dont have to put up a normal fence and ruin the look of your yard.

How can I get my dog to calm down indoors..? Please, any help?

Friday, January 27th, 2012

Question by Vixen*: How can I get my dog to calm down indoors..? Please, any help?
My puppy is a 5 month old Alaskan Malamute. He is such a wonderful dog when he is outdoors! He loves to be outside, he doesn’t stay out there, he is allowed to come in whenever he wants, but he loves the cool fall weather and prefers to be outside. But I don’t allow him outside when it gets dark out, I don’t feel comfortable. Anyway, he is so hyper and disobedient inside. He gets plenty of exercise, I talk him for 30-40 minute walks in the morning and play in the yard for a while, he runs around outside during the afternoon and he gets walked again for 60-80 minuets before we bring him in for the night.

Now, the problem. When inside with us, he howls at us for no apparent reason, and he also digs and at tries to chew our couch pillows. He also does to us; he digs at our sides with his paws and howls. I’m not sure why he does this or want he wants. I am not sure how to go about “training” him to calm down inside. I have dealt with Malamutes before, and never had this problem. He is fabulous outside and on walks, but not inside with us.

I’ve tried the ignoring him and turning away until he behaves and then rewarding him, but he doesn’t ever calm, even for a second! He jumps on me when I turn away, and like I said earlier he digs at me. I have also actually tried a water squirter, but he loves the water and howls more because he wants me to spray him!

Please, if anyone can help I’m not sure what to do. He gets all sorts of toys, but isn’t really interested for long, and gets all the exercise he needs.

Thanks in advance and for reading this!

Answer by Jayme
A malamute is one of the most dedicated working breeds… These dogs live to run and sleep in the snow! He is not being met with enough of a challenge for his “job”. (life) This dog needs hours of (strenuous) exercise (always keeping in mind that you build him up slowly). Howling is a way to keep in touch with the pack, and neutering wouldn’t be a bad idea as it may calm his more wild desires to roam.

Looking to get CDL, Have a few questions about HazMat, and other things, please give your input on this?

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

Question by brambo: Looking to get CDL, Have a few questions about HazMat, and other things, please give your input on this?
I am looking to get my CDL, trucking has been something I been around basically all my life, and now I wanna work, and have my CDL license as well,

“””””””””””””PLEASE keep reading as I am gonna type quite a bit to try my best so that you can best understand what I am trying to say here””””””””””””””””

But here’s the thing, I have not graduated high school, and I don’t know if I could pass the Hazmat Endorsement test,

First off, please don’t jump to conclusions here, just because I did not finish high school doesn’t mean I am a retard.

Secondly, I don’t really wanna haul dangerous cargo in the first place.

Will this effect me at all in getting my CDL?

Also, I would like to find out, If I go to a qualified CDL training school, or to a major trucking company that has their own school, and I ALREADY have a CDL permit, does that make things go any faster?

Basically, Can I or can’t I go to school if I already have a CDL Class A permit from the state I live in, do they skip a lot of things if I already have it, or is there still a lot of classroom work?

Do I have to do much more paper work after that, or is it mostly hands on type of things?

Believe me I know and understand there is quite a bit of paper work involved in the trucking industry, and I intend on learning about all of that when I chose a good school to achieve my CDL.

I been asking friends, family, and watching things here online about what your require to remember and do to past your CDL road test and such, it seems like a lot, but I believe if I try my best I can do it without a problem.

Basically what I could use here is a answer from someone who has a CDL and went either through a qualified CDL school somewhere, or went to a company and trained through them….Cause I think they could best understand what I am trying to ask here…

What really would be the simplest and quickest way to go about getting my CDL?

Do many companies require that you have a G.E.D. or High School Diploma? Or a Hazmat endorsement?
Or are these just things recommended but not required? (etc I would get less freight to haul because of not having this endorsement?)

Please be real and thoughtful in your answer to my question..I am just a simple guy who has been around trucks basically since I was old enough to know what a truck is…And one way or another I am gonna be getting my CDL soon..

Just looking for some advice on how I should go about it, and given my history and certain things I typed above that I don’t have, will these things hold me back totally? or hold me back from getting the “quote good jobs?”

ALSO, This Would Help Very Greatly If Someone Could Explain What I Typed Below To Me..

If there is someone on here who could sorta break down to me what I would have to go about doing everyday from when I wake up until I go to sleep, when I have my license and drive over the road….

Like a example days work, what paper work is involved? When and how often do I have to send messages to the company dispatcher? What needs to be included in a trip packet, (I believe they are sent at the end of each week if I am correct?)

Is it quite easy to get Logbook violations out on the road, if my Logbook isn’t perfect enough for a DOT officer?

“If there is a backup when waiting in line for a scale on the highway, and I am sitting 20-30 minutes, I mark it as on duty driving, but do I flag it in my remarks? Little things like this is whats really bugging me…

ALSO,
In a log book, If I write down my trailer and tractor number for the start of the day, and later in that day, for example I switch out trailers with another driver, what do I do? Start another page in my Logbook ? If my truck for instance breaks down, I am on the side of the road for several hours, which line do I mark it under in my Logbook? And what do I write below (if DOT wants to know what I did during that time for example) Sorry If I seem like I am going a bit over board here, I just wanna create the best question, to try and receive some good input on my situation and my questions…

There’s just some things I can’t seem to find the answers for so that’s why I am looking for help here…

Best answer receives 5 stars from me.

Thank you all..And if you would like to ask me something, say it in your question, and I will reply to you by adding Additional Details to this question. Or you can e-mail me by checking my profile…Any information is most helpful…

Hope everyone had a good Holiday, and New Year!

PLEASE! PROOF READ FOR ME, It is due midnight..100 points for anyone it?

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Question by boubacar b: PLEASE! PROOF READ FOR ME, It is due midnight..100 points for anyone it?
There are several great athletes who have behaved in such a way that they’re very poor role models for the young people who look up to them. Athletes are an inspiration to young people because they watch every move they make. For better or worse, young people observe and imitate their behaviors, actions, values, beliefs, and even their expressions. Modeling is important because it is the primary way that children learn the values they will carry for the rest of their lives.

Michael Phelps, the greatest swimmer, and one of the greatest Olympians of all time, has won 14 career Olympic gold medals, the most by won any Olympian. He has broken thirty-seven world records in swimming; however, he is a poor role model for young people. For instance, he recently revealed that he doesn’t worry about what he eats. He said that he can eat a high fat /high sugar diet and can still perform at peak levels. A typical example of his breakfast is as follows: Three fried-egg sandwiches, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions and mayonnaise, 3 egg omelets and grits, 3 slices of French toast with powdered sugar, 3 chocolate chip pancakes, and 2 cups of coffee. Many adolescent children admire him should not aspire to this diet, for it is a recipe for disaster for youth health. This kind of diet is setting many youth up for many diseases in later life. For example, heart problems, vascular disease, and diabetes to name a few. Obesity is a major problem in our country and for those who do not exercise as much as Michael Phelps does, this diet could lead to that as well. I believe that this diet is certainly not a positive model for young people to follow.

Another example is Barry Bonds. He is listed at #6 on the sporting news list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players which makes Bonds the highest-ranked active player in this sport. However, he recently revealed in the media that he has taken steroids to perform better on the field. For this, many consider him a cheater. For those young people who look up to him, this sends the message that it is cool to take steroids. When a role model makes a bad choice, some young people may actually see it as appropriate conduct for them to emulate because, their role model did it. Children need to learn that to participate in sport, a proper code of conduct is needed. Although it sometimes may seem unfair, rules keep the game worth participating in. Bonds has misguided those young adults who look up to him as role model. Simply because of his inappropriate conduct.

Michael Vick is an example of an elite football player for the Philadelphia Eagle of the National Football League, but he is a poor role model for the young people who look up to him. He chose to brutally abuse innocent dogs. This could lead young people to think that it is cool to abuse animals because their role model did. The extent of his wrong behavior is as follows: dog-fighting, gambling, tolerating drug-use and sales at these fights, and tax evasion. His methods of killing the dogs included drowning the dogs, electrocuting them and strangling them by hanging, badly treated all of his dogs. This is not a case of treating dogs royally until they lost a fight. This is an instance of a poor treated all of the dogs. In addition, yes, that included torture (which is often a means of “training” a dog for dog fighting).

In conclusion, these athletes chose to make a poor choices and some young people who looked up to them may be following their lead. Through ones actions, ones words, ones behavior and ones love, one can direct ones children toward the morals you want them to have. But these are irresponsible athlete; therefore, young adults and children should not look up to these athletes as role models.

My dogs will not shut up please help me i am going crazy!!!!!?

Saturday, December 3rd, 2011

Question by : My dogs will not shut up please help me i am going crazy!!!!!?
OK, i have a lab/chow mix dog(onyx). he lives with me and he is very calm. we have had him for almost 5 years. My aunt has a rottweiler(bentley) who is pretty big but isn’t mean or aggressive. he is just always playful and is distracted easily. he is about the same age. my aunt travels a lot and she leaves Bentley with us. ONyx and bentley know eachother and are used to eachother becaus ebentley is here often. the kitchen and living room are next to eachother and we always put a gate up and leave bentley in the kitchen and onyx in the living room. onyx likes to pick with him by going up to someone and have them pet him, or play with a toy, or sit in front of the cage and eat a treat. can i make him stop this? and every single teeny tiny move onyx makes, makes bentley go crazy. if onyx blinks or lifts his head, than bentley starts jumping, growling, running around in circles, and he barks so loud i feel like i am gonna go deaf. this happens every time we are here. and even if he can’t see onyx, he is constantly whining and this is VERY annoying… how can i make him shut up and onyx stop picking. since they aren’t puppies anymore i can’t really “train” them the same as i would if they were younger. please please help me he is here for a week and my aunt goes outta town a LOT.
Ok, some of you said to take them on walks but i am 12 and not allowed to go unless i am with an adult : ( and i tried to walk just onyx when i was with my dad and he pulled me along the whole track! and since bentley is a lot bigger and heavier, i don’t even wanna know what would happen!! i can’t leave them together because like i said, bentley is VERY playful and gets overexcited easily and my dog is calm so he will lay down and bentley will come and jump on him and try and bite his ear off…or onyx usually just goes up and humps him….so i don’t think that will work…
and also, some of you said to tell her to find another dog sitter, bentley is a dog of his own and another dog sitter couldn’t handle him. and it costs money and my aunt wouldn’t trust anyone. and i pay more attention than anyone else in my family. i play with onyx for a while and then i go play with bentley and i switch on and off for like 3 hours. or if they are in separate rooms i just play with them both alot or something..
and….. if i give them a treat at the same time, onyx saves his and just sits next to it, and bentley nearly swallows it whole. after he sees that bentley is gone, he goes and sits in front of him and eats his slowly…

What key is this song in please? Chords in description. Thank you!?

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Question by qwertyuiop: What key is this song in please? Chords in description. Thank you!?
I have written a song, and it goes A, G, D, A. (All major).
I want to add a guitar solo over the top, and am normally used to just playing notes that sound right and then forming an image of the pentatonic scale pattern to use as my base for the solo. However in this case I’m having a bit of trouble with the key.

If it was in A major, then wouldn’t the seventh chord have to be G sharp diminished? I have just a Gmajor.

The notes used in all the chords fit into the D major and B minor key signatures.

B minor pentatonic scale doesn’t sound completely right to me it has a C natural in it, but neither does D minor pentatonic, which has an F natural.

Help please! I have no real theory training, so am getting a little stuck.

Thanks a lot!

Best answer:

Answer by Wayne T
Does the song end with the A major chord? If so I would say the key is A major. Playing a G chord when you are in the key of A is a little unusual but not too far out.
