That's a good question! My mom's dog does the same thing, and she cannot figure out why. I noticed that he has floppy ears, so they do not get aired out as often as a dog with upright ears. If you have ruled out serious medical conditions, she may just need to have her ears cleaned more regularly or it can be a behavioral thing (think OCD).

I found these articles that you can check out:

I suggest you make an appointment with your dog's veterinarian to figure out the cause to work on a plan to decrease the frequency of head-shaking.

2016-12-07 19:02:12 -0500 answered a question Why does my dog terrorize the house whe he sees my male fiance leave?

Although I could not really find anything online talking about this exact subject, I will throw in my two cents anyway. I noticed that you did not mention spending time with your dog. If you have not tried sitting on the couch together while you pet him, taking him out for a walk, playing with him, etc., I think that giving one of those a try may be worth it.

I am not sure what is causing him to behave that way, but here are my guesses: 1) separation anxiety (like you already mentioned) and 2) lack of closeness between you two. What you have described is definitely separation anxiety, but it is odd because you are still there. I found tons of articles online about dogs experiencing separation anxiety when they are left alone. That is why that, in your situation, this leads me to believe that you two do not share a close bond, and that spending more time with him may help.

2016-11-23 22:39:09 -0500 answered a question No possible way to legally Dog Sit in Las Vegas?

I just joined http://Rover.com almost a couple weeks ago. I live in Clark County, in North Las Vegas, so this concerned me also. I just sent an email to chap@clarkcountynv.gov for verification of what you had stated. I would like to get it cleared up whether pet-sitting is legal here because if they set the laws up that way, I would rather not do it. I did find additional information that does seem to point to the contrary:

Hopefully, it is legal and there is some miscommunication, and that the case against you has no leg to stand on. I will post a response containing the response of the person I e-mailed earlier as soon as I get it.


EDIT (11/29/16)

Here is the response I have gotten back:

Hello,

You may legally operate a pet sitting business in Clark County with the correct approvals. Your first step would be to contact our Zoning Department at 702- 455-4314, to verify that your business address or home is suitable to use for the type of business you will be doing. Zoning will also verify what jurisdiction your address is located in. If you receive verification that your home is suitable and that it is in Clark County’s jurisdiction you may proceed in getting a Clark County Business License Business License by completing the 10 Easy Steps. The NAICS Code you referenced (812910) is the code you will use when applying if you wish to do so online.

The Clark County code that was being referenced in the comment that you read is as follows:

No person shall keep more than three dogs over four months of age, nor more than three cats over four months of age, at any one place, or on any premises, or in any one residence unless otherwise specified by this chapter or by the approval of a land use application subject to the provisions in Chapter 30.44 of Clark County Code. Any dog exempt from the sterilization requirements in Section 10.08.132(b) shall not be counted towards the maximum number of dogs permitted. Any dog or cat visiting a location for a period of seventy-two hours or less, other than for remuneration, shall not be counted towards the maximum number of household pets permitted.

I hope this provides some clarification. If you have any other questions, please let me know. Feel free to browse our Clark County Code if you have any future questions about regulations as well.

Sincerely,

Danielle Maatouk
