I'm thinking of getting a dog, but the contract for my apartment specifically says no pets.

I've talked with my landlord before I moved in about pets, and he says it's fine if I have to watch a dog for a friend or family for a couple of days, and the only reason he doesn't allow pets is because the next tenants might be allergic.

I've only been living here for about 4 months, but I'm probably gonna be living here for at least 2 more years, so I'm hoping I might be able to convince him to let me get a dog, but I'm not sure how ask him about it.

Any idea on how I should approach it?

Move to Victoria in Australia. We just passed laws protecting pet owners who rent.
Do you really have the space for a dog in an apartment?
Shouldn't a pupper have a big backyard to play in?
Not so. That works for mild allergies, but not severe, and cats are worse. Having a pet living in his building could prevent an extremely allergic person from renting there for years after the animal has been long gone.

Op, sorry, but if the landlord made it clear from the beginning that he doesn't allow pets, he played it fair and open. This is on you. Find a building that does, or suck it up and find an alternative.
You can take them to places outside of where you live where they can run/get exercise you know
Op, have you considered alternative pets like reptiles/fish? Landlords are usually a lot more willing with those because they are quiet and leave no mess.

I have an indian ringneck which I've recently allowed to grow his wings. This is because last time I clipped them myself I clipped them too low, and they didn't grow back for almost 12 months.
He's flying pretty well now, and will confidently fly to me or my partner in the kitchen to beg for food and such, but he's also a little overconfident when we aren't supervising and will fly into walls sometimes when we leave the room.
We keep him locked in his cage while we cook so danger around hot things isn't an issue, and we don't leave food out so he's not going to poison himself, but we are both worried about leaving his cage open during the day when we are in other rooms.
What do you guys think. I'm leaning towards leaving them unclipped because for some reason I feel like it will keep him healthy mentally, and we will get a dog one day and will be keeping them unclipped regardless when we do, but he is spending a little more time in his cage than when he used too, so I'm unsure.

He'll get better at flying and won't run into shit anymore.

I'd recommend you start a conditioning schedule where you pair his favorite special food with a whistle or something so that if he escapes in the future, it might help get him back since he'll be wanting the food.

I had zero problem with jaguars. Snow leopards, pandas and I think moose was a different story. It was some deciduous animal that wanted basically a few elevated anthills and was pissy about whatever I did.

>The Cane da Presa Meridionale (Italian for "Southern Catching Dog") is the old, "functional" working variant of the Neapolitan Mastiff. Before 1946 there was no distinction between Neapolitan Mastiff, Cane da Presa and Cane Corso, these were simply three different names for the same dog. The modern Neapolitan Mastiff is unlike the original, a dog created by dog shows. Fans of the original Mastino have started an organisation which is trying to gather the remaining specimens which would fit the 1946 standard of the Neapolitan Mastiff.

I strongly feel that the steady decline of the pug's health and aesthetic is an insult to dogs in general.
Also, were pugs ever smart? My uncle's pug rides the short bus when it comes to intelligence.
I think pugs will quickly become the worst offender due to their meme status

the fuck is wrong with wasps? Why do they always fly right in front of you or right next to you when you're walking? It's like they are looking for trouble or something. And why do flies always do the same thing: they fly in the air in their weird patterns for ten seconds then they land on some stupid spot and walk around until you get within 6 inches of them then they fly around for 10 seconds again then land on the same spot or a close-by spot. And if you get near them when they're flying, they fly straight into you.

Fucking flying insects can't mind their own business like the rest of the insects can.

So my dogs nails don't visually touch the floor when he stands but he does make clicking noises when he walks. Are they too long?
I personally prefer the look of these dogs to the look of the second pair you posted.

Is he more motivated by toys?

>how to curb aggressive behavior towards other dogs?
Depends, why is he doing it and in what context?
>how to acclimate dogs to water?
Slow, gradual introduction. Don't force it. Encourage him and reward him for trying it out. Be aware that he may never LOVE water even if you do things "right." But you should be able to get him to tolerate it at least.

She's very cute! Would love to see more pictures of her

implying penguins only live in antarctica, they live all over the southern hemisphere, some in warm climates

lots of birds are terrible at the whole land thing
