How to choose a bowl for a dog?

How to choose a bowl for a dog? It would seem that there is nothing complicated in this matter. But in practice, it turns out that one model is much more convenient than another and that an improperly selected bowl can lead to poor posture and even an upset stomach. In our article we will tell you what to look for when choosing a bowl in the first place.

1. Bowl material

10 steps to successfully raising a dog

How to educate a dog and teach her basic commands? – Each responsible owner asks himself this question. But before you go directly to education and training, you should ask yourself another question: how to explain to the pet that he should obey you and what exactly you are the master of in the house?

The key to any successful upbringing and training is a properly built relationship between the owner and the pet. And if at first glance it seems that there is nothing complicated in this, then in practice dogs often demonstrate impenetrable stubbornness and stubbornly refuse to obey. The fact is that the dog is a pack animal, and it is common for it to look for a leader in society. Some breeds gladly give the palm to a man, but others, naturally endowed with an independent and dominant character, can long test the owner for strength, claiming first place without false modesty.

It is very important to timely identify the position and convey to the dog that it is her who should follow you, and not you after her, otherwise you run the risk of raising a wayward pet that will behave as it pleases and traditionally ignore the commands of family members. Continue reading

Dog Care Rules

A well-groomed dog is, first of all, a healthy dog, and the task of each owner is to organize the right diet for his pet, the correct daily routine, and also conduct regular examinations of the dog to assess its general condition. An interesting fact is that unusual, exotic breeds of dogs require more reverent care. “Classic” pets, as close as possible to their wild ancestors, practically do not need complicated additional care.

Dog inspection
Examination of the dog allows you to identify any health problems, injuries, damage and the presence of parasites. Inspection should be carried out regularly, because the dog is on the street every day at least twice a day. During the walk, the pet can easily injure the foot, get scratched or receive other damage. Also in the season there is a great risk of catching a tick – and the more closely you monitor the condition of your pet, the lower the risk of serious ailments. Continue reading
