Since ancient times, dogs have been considered man’s best friends. There are few people in the world who would be indifferent to these cheerful and faithful beings. However, the need for daily walks with a pet, and regardless of weather conditions, often makes you abandon the idea of having a four-legged friend. But is it worth thinking so categorically? In our article we will talk about the place that walks in a dog’s life take and how often you need to walk with your pet.
Daily walks are necessary for animals to feel good and good health. It is not enough to take the pet out to the street just for him to do his job, and immediately get him home. This does not provide the dog with physical activity and does not bring any benefit. However, it would also be wrong to say that at least 2 walks of at least an hour duration are required every day, because everything in this matter depends on the breed, age and individual characteristics.

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
A well-groomed dog is, first of all, a healthy dog, and the task of each owner is to organize the right diet for his pet, the correct daily routine, and also conduct regular examinations of the dog to assess its general condition. An interesting fact is that unusual, exotic breeds of dogs require more reverent care. “Classic” pets, as close as possible to their wild ancestors, practically do not need complicated additional care.
Examination of the dog allows you to identify any health problems, injuries, damage and the presence of parasites. Inspection should be carried out regularly, because the dog is on the street every day at least twice a day. During the walk, the pet can easily injure the foot, get scratched or receive other damage. Also in the season there is a great risk of catching a tick – and the more closely you monitor the condition of your pet, the lower the risk of serious ailments. Continue reading
