I have a cat that is friendly to strangers and likes to rub up against my legs. However, I’m not sure if he likes me. He hates to be picked up and does not show affection. While he likes to be near me, he will not willingly come to me or sit on my lap unless I am feeding him treats. He bites me often, sometimes drawing blood. Could these be love bites? Or does he really not like me? Is he punishing me for something? Cats have a reputation for loving attention one minute and biting the next.
I have a five-year-old dog that knows many skills. When he sees another dog, he won’t obey. On walks, he has leash aggression. In the yard, he runs and barks at the neighbour’s dog and will not stop. In the car, he barks ferociously at dogs we pass. How do we get him to listen? Leash aggression usually describes dogs that react when on leash or blocked by a barrier. The distinguishing feature is that they are exceptionally friendly when loose.
Our dog pulls terribly when walking on a leash. We’ve rewarded, corrected, changed direction, stood like a tree and bought a half dozen types of collars. When we get out in the real world, our dog pulls toward trees, people and dogs. Is there any way we can get our dog to walk nicely on a leash? Loose leash walking is one of the most difficult skills to teach. This skill is challenging because the real world throws distractions in the dog’s path.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
