How to understand your dog?

Wagging tail.
And let’s start with the most recognizable sign! It is generally accepted that if a dog wags its tail, it means that it has a great mood. But in practice there are nuances. Now, if along with the tail the whole body wags from the shoulder blades to the toes, then the dog is really happy! But if the tail is raised, strained and only its tip wags, and the dog’s body is frozen and the mouth is tightly closed – beware! This means that the dog is very tense, she does not like something, and throwing her arms around her is a bad decision. Here you can draw an analogy with cats. Remember, they wag their tail in displeasure? Contrary to stereotypes, so do dogs.

Slightly parted mouth, relaxed muzzle.
Smile! Yes, try a smile and pay attention to the position of your lower jaw. During a smile, she drops slightly, and the upper and lower teeth no longer touch each other. The same thing happens with dogs! If the pet is satisfied, relaxed and happy, its mouth is slightly ajar and completely relaxed. You can consider this an analogue of a human smile! Continue reading

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 training

Dog training is not just a fascinating process of interaction between the owner and the pet, but also a necessity, because the dog (especially the medium and large) must know and carry out the basic commands so that nothing threatens the comfort and safety of others. In addition, serious specialized training of dogs cannot be avoided in many specialized, professional structures, as well as in exhibition activities and sports.
First, let’s talk about the concept of “training”, what is it? Training is the training of a dog for teams that will be performed by it in any conditions with the appropriate sign of the owner. In the process of training, the execution of commands is fixed in the dog as a conditioned reflex, which allows the owner to control the dog’s behavior both during its stay at home and during walks.

Training is the key to the safety of others and the dog itself. A trained dog will not run after a ball or a cat and accidentally fall under a car, pick up food lying on the ground, run away from the owner and, of course, do not disturb a person passing by. Continue reading
