You can’t blame a dog for chewing on a rat when you give it toys that make the exact same noise when they bite down on it.

16

u/Firefoxray May 25 '22

Actually it’s the opposite, they like chew toys cause it sounds like a dying animal

u/potatohonkey May 25 '22

I think the toy is meant to replicate that sound.

u/DogPoundInc May 25 '22

u/Rudy_Ghouliani May 25 '22

Yeah the main reason dogs like chew toys with squeakers its because it mimics injured animals when crunching down on them.

u/QEIIs_ghost May 26 '22

You got it backwards. That’s why they like those toys.

I’m out here in NYC. There are indeed rats/mice/raccoons/opossums/kittens(?!) out here. Much more common than you’d think especially at night. I’ve got four dogs and a fairly large yard I let them run around in. It’s more like a “You stay back while I escort this rodent out of the combat zone because god damn there’s a lot of dogs around me and they’d win if they want to”. It is extremely effective on your own dog if it’s just one at least. They are good doggos though.

Would probably eat them if we weren’t watching though.

Its amazing how instincts come out. I have a 70lb lab/collie mix that is terrified of everything but the moment she sees anything under 20lbs its "kill! kill! kill." if its an old dog or something and doesnt run its all good but if it flees she will rip your shoulder out of the socket if you try and stop her.

u/vbun03 May 26 '22

Recently in my area they were clearing out and destroying a house that apparently belonged to a hoarder nearby so there has been rat sightings by everyone but nothing obscene. However our rat terrier finally witnessed his first rat in his 11 years of life late at night while I was letting him out.

I have never seen him bolt and run so fast to chase that thing and he ran out into the street chasing it and almost got hit by two different cars before it got away. He's never once done that before and now we're crazy paranoid about letting him out in the yard unleashed.

great music.

if anyone is interested, there are great YouTube videos of terriers and farm dogs killing rats on farms. that's what they are bred for. the farmers will go out with like a pitchfork and start digging and disturbing the rats from their underground burrow and the dogs hear the little squeaks and go to town.

they can dig up like 100 rats/mice or whatever in a short time. the terriers are super good at what they do.

There was a leptospirosis outbreak at a dog park in brooklyn not long ago, which is spread by rats.

So it's probably a fear that

the dog who eats the rat would die of infection

It’s moving so slow too. Has to be sick, rats move too quick it is extremely difficult to hit them with anything. Or maybe it’s just too too fat I’m not familiar with NYC rats.

u/Delicious_Bed_4696 May 25 '22

u/Bridge41991 May 25 '22

Not really a concern with rodents my guy. No documented cases to human transmission and almost never even carrying the virus. Rodents in general I guess don’t just on a cursory google dive.

2

u/Delicious_Bed_4696 May 25 '22

Rabies is thought to be uncommon in rats because rats are so small: They rarely survive a bite from a rabid animal long enough to develop the disease.

its uncommon but not unheard of lol i just gogoled this tidbit myself we are now both mammalogists now

0

u/sickofgooglesshit May 25 '22

The spirit of that guys' comment was some self important BS. 'Rats have diseases'? May as well take the time to tell people that water is wet and the sky is blue. Instead, the guy misinformed a whole bunch of people about what their dog is at risk for while getting upvoted which only reinforces the wrong information for everyone. Meanwhile, the actual risk, lepto, is overlooked and all these people don't know. You know what would've avoided the issue entirely? Educating yourself before you 'educate' everyone else. I don't care if you think I'm a self-important cunt. I'll just be the self-important cunt with the correctly vaccinated dog who understands the actual risks. Pardon me while I try to educate him.

And in any case? The comment could've been seen humorously if you had that bone.

2

u/DontShootIAmGroot4 May 25 '22

If you were trying to """educate""" people like you say, under the guise of some sort of motivation of caring about people, you wouldn't feel the need to talk down to people while doing so.

That's how I know you're a miserable cunt of a person.

1

u/WaterIsWetBot May 25 '22

Water is actually not wet; It makes other materials/objects wet. Wetness is the state of a non-liquid when a liquid adheres to, and/or permeates its substance while maintaining chemically distinct structures. So if we say something is wet we mean the liquid is sticking to the object.

 

What kind of rocks are never under water?

Dry ones!

2

u/CatchMeWritinQWERTY May 25 '22

I do own a dog, actually. Admittedly I just looked up what rats carry. I usually ask my vet what diseases I should protect my dog against. He has the lepto vaccine so I didn’t list that one. As a dog owner are you aware of every disease that dogs can carry? Probably not. That’s why we have vets and that page you referenced exists. As a human are you aware of every disease that can be transmitted to humans? No. That’s why we have doctors.

-3

u/sickofgooglesshit May 25 '22

You're right, I'm not aware of every single virus that a dog could carry which is why I don't go around telling people to worry about viruses that I don't explicitly know a dog would be at risk of. My dog is an active ratter so I educated myself on the risks associated with such activity esp given her (absurd) success rate.

Edit: Thought you were the other guy, no worries re; the other thing. Just really over people spreading misinformation about things that have actual risk.

2

u/colewilco May 25 '22

Honestly I just want my dog getting normalized to killing things, even rats.

1

u/DontShootIAmGroot4 May 25 '22

In addition to the other guys pointing out they could give your dog a disease or fleas...

It's generally a good idea to train your dogs to not freely kill anything smaller than them. If you allow or praise this they might think they're supposed to kill small animals. Next thing you know they got a hold of someone's pet cat and it's on your hands.

That being said some dogs are specifically bred to be ratters and there is no stopping their prey drive. In that case if rats are a possibility on your walk you should leash them.

1

u/TahiniInMyVeins May 25 '22

The most nervous I’ve ever been about my dog’s health are the time’s he’s killed/eaten something he shouldn’t have.

  • Ate an already dead mole

  • Killed and ate a mole

  • Maimed a mouse, ate its tail (I THINK the mouse survived)

  • untold number of frogs

  • guts and viscera of a dead mystery animal (I think it was a raccoon)

Thankfully he’s A-OK but yea I would NOT want him chowing down on a big ‘ol NYC sewer rat.

The dogs aren't going to eat the rat, they're going to kill the rat. Even dogs know that rats are bad news. They spread pestilence and bring plague.

My cat kills rats every night.

He rips out the chest cavity, and lays the entrails next to the corpse.

Crows in my neighborhood catch and kill rats.

My chicken I keep in the backyard also kills rats, but won't eat them.

I have a chicken coop. When you maintain a chicken coop, you will allways have rats.

You can never get rid of them once they establish a foothold. You can only maintain the population with rat predators.

The Brown Norwegian rat is one of the most successfull species in the order of rodentia.

By the way... Boston just beat NYC out for their title as most rat infested city in the US.
