Shedding in dogs

Owners of dogs of various breeds inevitably encounter molting. This is a completely natural process, taking place most noticeably in long-haired pets. Of course, no one likes shreds of wool spreading around the apartment and sticking to clothes, but it is impossible to prevent the dog from molting. It turns out that in this way animals react to changing seasons. If the molt of the dog has an off-season lingering character, it can become an indicator of the disease. We hope that our article will help you survive this period with minimal losses, properly care for the dog during molting and thereby make life easier for your pet. Having renewed, the wool will again become shiny and beautiful, and during walks your pet will attract admiring glances of passers-by.

Twice a year, in spring and autumn, the dog’s coat is renewed naturally. This process is directly related to the health of the animal, its immunity and well-being. If the hair glistens in the sun – this is an excellent indicator, but if it is dull and not silky – then you need to pay special attention to the body of the pet.

How to teach a dog the command “Next!”

The “Near!” Team is a valuable skill that a dog of any breed should acquire. It is unlikely that any owner will like that the animal will constantly pull the leash, trying to escape, or, conversely, get in the way underfoot. But the dog trained by the “Near!” Team will immediately attach itself to the left foot of its owner and will move along with him until he releases her for a walk.

Despite its apparent simplicity, this team is difficult enough to learn as a pet. Training is based on coercion, so it’s worth starting an exercise with a puppy only from 6 months of age. A step-by-step guide and useful tips will help you teach your dog how to run the “Next!” Command on and without a leash, in the normative version for exhibitions and for everyday use for daily walks.

Why train a dog near the team! Continue reading

Dog Food Classes

Today, each type of dog food – dry, semi-moist, wet, canned – has its own classification. It can not be called unified, uniform for all the leading manufacturers of ready-made dog food, but it is conditionally divided into the following components: feed of economy class, premium class, super-premium class and holistic. Each of them is characterized by rather specific parameters:

category of meat products;
sources and quality of protein – a special concentrated protein;
vitamin palette;
the amount and range of minerals, their ratio;
the presence of flavorings, food colors, preservatives;
the presence of additives that positively affect the work of individual organs of the dog;
cost.
