How dogs communicate with us

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!

Which is better: dry food or wet?
Experts assure: the main thing is not the type of feed, but its composition. This is not to say that all wet foods are better than dry foods, and vice versa. Each species has its own advantages. In addition, do not forget about the tastes of the pets themselves. Some with great appetite eat dry food, while others agree only on fragrant canned food. Only you in the company with your pet can decide what is best for him. Continue reading

Mistakes in raising a dog

The owners often complain about the dog: “You train and train, but she is still old.” Or they don’t complain, they simply declare that the dog is ill-bred, because she has “such a character” and it is impossible to train her. But the matter is most often not in the pet, but in the owner, who, out of ignorance or because of insufficient motivation, makes serious mistakes in the upbringing. In our article we will list the main ones. Take note!

1. Poor diet

The well-being of the dog, its energy, cheerfulness and even quick wits directly depend on the quality of feeding. With a poor diet, the pet simply will not have the strength to absorb new information.

2. Lack of socialization
