Eye contact. Dogs tend to keep the owner in sight 24 hours a day and catch their eyes as often as possible. Look at your pet. If the expression of his face is calm, and the jaw is relaxed, scratch him behind the ear, he will be extremely happy about it! By the way, Japanese researchers are convinced that there is a connection between the dog’s eye contact with the owner and the level of the attachment hormone (oxytocin). Make “warm” eye contacts with your pet more often, and your friendship will only grow stronger!
How do dogs communicate with us?
The dog brings you things. No, not on command. And spontaneously, of his own free will. For example, pets often bring toys to their owners. We regard this gesture as an invitation to play, but in fact they give us a present. It is believed that the echoes of hunting instincts work this way. The dog used to bring prey to the owner, but now it brings what, in its opinion, can please him. And let her choice not surprise you!
The dog is hunched and compressed. If you see that the dog is trying by all means to seem smaller than its size, there is only one conclusion: it is very afraid of something and needs your protection! Continue reading
If you dream of a four-legged friend who grabs teams on the fly, responsibly fulfills them and surprises others with cool tricks, carefully consider the choice of breed. Some dogs are completely unreachable. And the point is not in the level of intelligence, but in character and temperament. Self-sufficiency and independence is laid at the genetic level. For example, Akita Inu does not run after the ball, because it does not see the point. And for jack russell, aporting is an interesting and fascinating activity. Malamute is very difficult to force to carry out commands, since he is his own leader. And for a German shepherd, every word of the owner is a law. In our article, we present 5 dog breeds that can be trained. They perfectly master the teams and take genuine pleasure in their implementation. Take note!
1. Border Collie
Perpetual motion machines that never sit still. Incredibly smart, funny and cheerful dogs with a developed instinctor beater. In the UK, in their homeland, boarders still work on pastures, as in the old days. In urban conditions, these dogs also strive to chase everyone in a row: if not lambs, then other dogs, cats, children, and sometimes owners. Inquisitive, energetic and efficient, border collies are perfectly trained. Continue reading
How do you imagine nanny dogs? Some will answer that these are wise dogs that partially assume the functions of parents, help in raising and caring for the child, protect him from dangers, and even teach him to walk.

What kind of nanny dogs are they for kids? Let’s talk about this in our article.
Dogs have their own perception of the world, their own hierarchy and their own laws. Have you ever seen how dogs bring up puppies? They can punish them with a harsh growl and pat them at the withers, and biting during games is a common thing. Therefore, it is wrong to wait for a “human” treatment of a child from a dog. And it’s also wrong to assume that a dog will never snap on a child, even if he will squeeze her tail. Pets have their own feelings and feelings. They do not know and do not understand how to behave with babies, what is good for them and what is not. To explain this to them, as far as possible, the owners should. Continue reading
