What are the dog training courses?

A trained dog is not only a reason for pride, but also a guarantee of safety for both the pet itself and everyone around it. But that is not all. For centuries, people have been selecting dogs with various inclinations and abilities – they made different breeds that can be conditionally divided into functional cattle, hunting (pointers, hounds), security, service and companion dogs. These dogs, like humans, need to exercise their abilities in order to be happy. And the right training technique allows you to discover and develop their natural talents. This, you see, is much nicer and more useful than raising a “sofa” pet.
You can do the training yourself. But this requires experience and a lot of time, especially when it comes to medium and large breeds. In any case, the result of “home” training loses to specialized courses. After all, if you are not a professional, it is difficult to create a truly competent program and take into account the behavioral characteristics of your dog specifically. That is why special courses are in such demand. In our article we will talk about the five most popular programs. Continue reading

Dog teeth care

How to care for a dog’s teeth? And whether it is necessary to look after them in general? These questions arise for each responsible pet owner. In the natural habitat, wolves, jackals and coyotes – wild relatives of dogs – do well without dental toys, treats, special toothbrushes and pastes. And what about pets?

In nature, the jaws of the wolf will always find application. The beast hunts, butches prey and eats not only meat, but also tendons, cartilage, bones. Hunting trains the muscles of the jaw, and hard food naturally cleans plaque from fangs. With a weak dentition, the wolf would not have survived! Continue reading
