Why do dogs howl?

Some owners complain that dogs howl at night. Others themselves have never heard a howling pet, but disgruntled neighbors convince the opposite. Still others, returning from work, do not have time to open the door – as plaintive howls are already heard on the other side. Examples can go on and on. But there is only one problem – howl. Why does a dog howl at home or in the yard? How to deal with it? About this in our article.
Howling dogs can scare. Especially if it suddenly rings out in the middle of the night. We still remember the ancient signs that repeat: the dog howls unfortunately. But in practice, everything is much more prosaic. We list the main causes of “bad” behavior and suggest methods of dealing with them.

Why the dog howls: reasons

Instincts
No matter how tame the dog was, the wolf was and remains its ancestor. Howling for wolves is a way of communication. The closer the dog is to the wolf, the greater the likelihood that she will decide to “rise to the moon.” For example, howls are often “carried away” by husky. So dogs are looking for communication with their relatives, and perhaps respond to a fellow click from the street, which the human hearing simply did not catch. Continue reading

Master, can I eat a Christmas tree?

1. Artificial or real?

If you have a dog at home, an artificial Christmas tree is more suitable for you. Firstly, an artificial Christmas tree is not so pleasant to nibble as a natural one, and the dog will not try to eat it. Secondly, it is more durable, while the living one is most often installed in a bucket of water. Thirdly, artificial spruce trees do not crumble and do not stain the dog’s coat with tar. Fourth, they can be dropped as much as desired without much harm to the appearance.

A living tree always attracts the attention of a dog. Fragrant twigs and the trunk simply can not help but chew! But the spoiled tree in this case is far from the worst. Sharp needles and branches can injure the dog’s oral cavity, and once in the body, they will lead to intestinal obstruction.

From what age and how often to bathe a puppy?

At what age can a puppy be bathed?
Perhaps this is one of the first issues faced by the new owner.

The minimum age for bathing a puppy is 3 months. A responsible breeder will not give the puppy to a new home before this time. At 3 months, the baby already has more or less strong immunity, and bathing, if done correctly, will not cause him any harm.

Bathe your puppy as it gets dirty.

In the first days after moving, if the pet is not dirty, you do not need to wash it. A change of scenery is always stress, and swimming will only intensify it. Before proceeding to hygiene procedures, wait for the puppy to adapt and begin to trust you.
