    Default Rookie doubts


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello friends!
    My husband wants to have a guecko, the problem is that we recently adopted a beagle and we don't know if they will get along.
    Any recommendations so that there are no problems between both pets?

    Thank you very much!!

    Put the gecko cage somewhere that the beagle can't access. It probably won't even know the gecko is there. We have 2 cats and it works fine.

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited, Ana!

    There are MANY different gecko species out there! Has your husband decided on which one yet?

    I have two leopard geckos, and a smallish dog. My lowest one is a few inches above her head level, and the most my dog will do is look at her. Other than that she leaves her alone and ignores her. Then again, my dog is also 11 years old........
    Hi, I'm Kate and I love animals. I'm the proud owner of Stacy, the 11 year old dog, Azymondias (Zym), the 1 year old leopard gecko, and Moonlily (Moon), the 9 month old leopard gecko. Right now those are my only pets, but later on in the year I will be expanding my menagerie lol.

    Hi Ana,

    I'm a new gecko owner (just a bit over a week), but I have two very curious cat (who have all of the grace and elegance of a small herd of 6 month old great danes who have been playing in mud all afternoon). I set the enclosure up about a week before I got my gecko, so it gave them time to notice the new "thing" in the house and complete their investigations.

    Since I brought Donovan home, I can honestly say that they haven't even noticed that he exists.

    On the other hand, the dubia roaches that I have for him to eat have become a bit of an obsession for both cats. Dogs don't tend to be as "Oooo a bug, I must play with it!" oriented as cats are, but I would recommend finding a place to keep the bugs that is out of your beagle's reach.

    My only other recommendation would be that, when you have your gecko out of his enclosure, make sure the dog is elsewhere. There's a very good chance he'll ignore the gecko entirely, but you don't want to take a chance that he'll think the gecko is a new toy or, even worse, a treat.
