Treatment of a dog from fleas and ticks

Treatment of the dog from ectoparasites is a mandatory measure designed to protect the health of the pet. The bites of fleas, ticks and mosquitoes not only bring the animal discomfort, but also create a risk of infection with infectious diseases.

There is a myth that it is enough to treat a pet from parasites 2 times a year: in spring and autumn. But in practice, treatment from parasites must be carried out all year round. Fleas are active at any time, and the dog can become infected with them, regardless of season or temperature. Veterinarians also recommend treating the dog from ticks regularly: from snow to snow. In frosts, ticks fall asleep, but as soon as the average daily temperature exceeds + 5 ° C, they immediately become active. In our climate, this can happen even in winter. There are known cases of bites at temperatures below zero, for example, in the area of ​​heating mains. To protect your pet, treatment should be carried out regularly. Continue reading

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

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. Continue reading
