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.

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.
