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

How to distinguish a sick dog from a healthy

Unfortunately, if the dog is not feeling well, she cannot tell us about it. And the task of the responsible owners is proper care, taking care of their pet and carefully monitoring it, so that in case of possible ailments, symptoms are noticed on time and treatment is scheduled on time.
Of course, it is not difficult to detect bruises, fractures, cuts, burns and other external injuries in a dog – many injuries are visible to the naked eye, and if you have a long-haired dog, make it a rule to periodically examine her skin for possible damage.

If we are talking about internal diseases, then everything is much more complicated: often even an experienced veterinarian can not identify the problem in the early stages. Therefore, in case of symptoms of malaise, it is very important to take the dog for examination on time, if necessary, take tests to diagnose the disease, get appropriate recommendations and start treatment.

What is dog training and how does it differ from training?

Training is a dry training of a dog for certain teams, including the very complex team cycles required in various professional fields.

Whereas upbringing is a broader concept, the purpose of which is to instill in a dog acceptable behavior in society. And if training takes only 4-5 months, then raising a pet takes his whole life, because throughout his life the dog will always learn something new, face different conditions, get into different situations, and the owner’s task is to explain to the pet, how to behave.
The essence of upbringing is not to teach the dog to automatically execute commands, but to convey to her an understanding of what is good and what is bad, what can be done and what cannot.

The main educational tool is voice and intonation, the main stimulus is delicacy. Physical action on the dog is allowed only when it is really necessary. The punishment should be symbolic, and not hurt the pet. Continue reading

Basic rules for feeding a dog

Proper, nutritious nutrition is the key to the health of your dog, and it is the unbalanced diet that is the root of most ailments. If the dog does not eat well, its body does not receive the elements necessary for normal functioning, it is weakened and vulnerable to various diseases. While a well-nourished dog is always full of strength and active, it has strong immunity, excellent metabolism, healthy teeth, ears, hair and skin, it practically does not need complex care, since a healthy body naturally forms a well-groomed appearance.
The concept of “proper nutrition” includes not only a high-quality balanced feed, but also the optimal portion size, and the optimal daily amount of feedings, as well as the time and place of feeding.

Unfortunately, not all owners know that you need to feed the dog after a walk, and in no case before it, because for comfortable digestion, the dog needs peace, not active games.

The feed plate should be comfortable and preferably placed not on the bare floor, but on a special stand. Continue reading
