The joy of Best Things.
Dogs are one of the most common animals that are adopted and made part of a family.
In order to make sure they stay healthy providing plenty of exercise is very important. Most dogs require two walks per day for adequate exercise. It’s also important to watch your dog’s caloric intake. Dental hygiene is also important such as it is in humans; if canine teeth get rotted the dog will have a hard time eating food. As you can see, taking care of your dog’s health is fairly easy because it’s much like taking care of your own.
Cats are more self-dependent than their canine counterparts and do not require baths as they clean themselves.
Walking them is unnecessary, which is good because no sane cat would consent to wear a collar and a leash. Just playing with them is enough to give them some exercise. As with dogs and human beings dental is also a factor for felines. These measures should reduce the chances that your cat will get seriously ill.
Over the years I have learned that dogs are social beings who like to communicate with another one. They communicate with their eyes, ears, tails, and lips. The meanings we interpret from their body language are just as important as the words we speak.
When looking at our dogs, we literally “list” what they are “saying” to us. They are saying things like, “Are you lonely”, “Do you think I might do with you sometime”, “Are you hungry and needs some grub”? They are also making noises, some of which are quite deafening. They might be telling us “Look mom, I need a little more attention”! If we really pay attention, we will notice all these subtle interactions and of course, our dogs will too. They truly “know” what is going on with us.
Most of us pet owners are probably pet lovers and in particular dog lovers. We tend to anthropomorphize our pets and consider them as members of our family. This is reinforced by our tendency to make decreased statements about our pets’ behaviors. For instance: “My dog knows he’s a dog, so he bites whenever he feels jealous!” or “My dog whines all the time when I’m in bed!” Notice how 115 degrees feels to you? My dog may be a needy pooch, depending on her breed and social skills, that is. Or she may beESRapunzel who knows she is in fashion & wants to burn that desirable fur off. Hopefully, my daughter will let that puppy know that she is isogenic by running up to her and giving her the stinky eye! My point here is that we need to understand our dogs and our needs. We tend to priorities our relationships more than our dogs’ relationships. This is the number one cause of separation anxiety in dogs. And guess what, that’s why hundreds of thousands of dogs are being abandoned and destroyed each & every day. The easiest way to avoid separation anxiety in dogs is to understand your dog and why he does what he does. It may become your second nature, but you still need to interact with him and play with him.
There are things you can do to establish and maintain your leadership role with your dog. Here are a few suggestions:
When feeding your dog, make him a lifelong part of your dinner. If you eat by yourself, your dog sees himself as the BOSS of your establishes. He can eat anytime, but if you choose a time or a place for eating that is different from his normal feeding time, he has to wait or he will be excluded from the meal.
My dogs’ Vet includes drugs in their food to sedate pets born with necks collapsed or tails. This is to reduce the risk of them absorbing any unwanted toxins. Humans take vitamins and supplements to get rid of toxins. Dogs’ don’t!
Do you take vitamins or supplements? Most people do. I’m not going to sit here and tell you that it’s good for you, it’s bad for you. My point is you have to establish vitamins or supplements as a part of your dog’s routine. If you give your dog a supplement, let him eat a certain amount of food that includes that supplement in his diet to avoid an overdose. If you give him a regular tablet without any study, you better monitor the number of chewable he consumes every day because this may lead to poor ingestion habits that may lead to poor dentition. Okay, enough of that, let’s get to the point. Learn the needs of your dog and how to meet those needs.
In our houses, we have mice, bugs, hamsters, birds, and other critters. All living in the same household. As the saying goes: “You are what you eat.” Take care of them, pat their heads, be affectionate, but make sure they are getting the proper diet. You are what you eat, and if you don’t eat properly, you will not live the full life you deserve.
This one is so hard to hear. Your dog may not want to eat, may have physical problems that are making him not want to eat, or the vet may say your dog is too fat and it’s going to kill him. This is too hard to hear.
Healthy homemade dog food as a part of a dog’s balanced diet is a natural way to promote his overall health and well-being.
A dog’s diet should include a combination of vegetables, meat, and grains. Ideally, these should be organic, so that they carry lots of nutritional value.
While many people maintain that table scraps are a proper part of a dog’s diet, it is advised to avoid feeding your pet food from the table. It’s hard to say yes or no on this one since the benefits of table scraps often depend on what the scraps are compared against.
When feeding your dog, it is advisable to avoid feeding him from the table. Remember, that a dog’s diet is a powerful tool with which to combat the effects of a variety of environmental and behavioral factors that can affect health and well-being.
So how can you balance a dog’s diet between fresh food and table scraps?
The best way to balance a dog’s diet between fresh food and table scraps is to feed him a mixture of both. Get the two personalities involved and you will find a dog who does not mind dining al fresco and who will also love to sample the soft food on your table.
The reason that dogs scatter food rather than take food from the table is that it’s the dog’s confusion of needing to ” ado” at the table as opposed to the fact that he needs to be fed.
If you intend to feed your dog regularly from the table, it’s a good idea to get him used to this practice through a slow introduction. Begin with only a small morsel from your plate. He may object – that’s natural. Don’t get angry at him. He’s just learning what he can and cannot eat.
Sometimes, it may be easier to work with a small snack rather than a meal. This way, you can put a small piece of food from your plate into his bowl or allow him to play with it. This method is OK if you have lots of time to spare.
How to prepare homemade meals for your dog?
Because homemade food may contain many ingredients that are difficult for dogs to the processor that might be harmful to them, it’s important that you know what to avoid in the recipes.
You should avoid using ingredients that are artificial or household chemicals. However, you should also avoid using ingredients that are Prepared with preservatives reasonably anticipated to cause allergies. The following is a list of ingredients that are considered unsafe. This is not meant to be a complete list, please view the website or ingredient label to ensure what you are buying is safe and does not contain harmful substances: BHA/BHT, ethoxyquin, artificial colorings, formaldehyde, and sulforaphane medication.
You want to avoid ingredients like apple seeds, garlic, onions, tomatoes, green and yellow potatoes, and chocolate. If you have these types of foods on hand, then you’ll want to be certain that your dog as well as you are not allergic to them.
Preparing homemade meals for your dog can be a great way to ensure that he remains healthy and happy throughout his life. While it may be more expensive than commercial foods, it allows you to ensure that your dog is consuming healthy foods and is the best person to determine what is a healthy recipe for your dog’s eating habits.
You have so much more control over the ingredients that are included in your food. However, even when you know what the food contains and has the nutrition that your dog needs, you’ll want to add ingredients gradually to ensure that your dog is maintaining a balance between the nutrients and the food.
For example, you might add a teaspoon of honey to a teaspoon of peanut butter (or a tablespoon of sugar). Or, you might add a quarter teaspoon of turmeric to a tablespoon of rice.
Once you’ve determined the right amount of each ingredient to add, you’ll be able to introduce it into your dog’s diet easily. This will help his digestion system adjust to the new ingredients.
Remember, that if you buy prepackaged foods, you have to buy them as they are packaged and can be very expensive. With homemade meals, you can control his eating habits and ensure that he is eating a healthy diet – and will hopefully eat it until you next try to coax him to eat. Until then, you can store the leftovers at a manageable level by freezing them or using them as emergency rations when needed.
The practice of puppy biting is actually older than we’d like to believe. Puppies use their mouths to explore the world around them, much as baby humans use their hands to explore the world around them.
It is always possible that a bite might become abite, although most instances of puppy biting are quite mild and hardly affect your child. There are some cases, however, that can be a real danger, and should be addressed promptly.
What causes a puppy to bite?
Sometimes a puppy learns that biting is an acceptable form of play, resulting in little inhibition. Puppies that have been removed from their littermates and mother, or dogs that have been fed chewy or toy-type food may continue this behavior, even into adulthood.
Other puppies may learn the behavior from being spayed while still young. While it may be nice to think that your dog is simply defending his toys or food because he was hungry, he may be telling himself “I bite because I’m hungry.”
If you’ve had your puppy since it was 8 weeks old and he’s still biting, then it’s likely that he hasn’t learned the skill of bite inhibition that most dogs take part in between the ages of 16 and 24 weeks. However, it’s abnormal for your puppy to be biting people even more by the time he’s four months old.
If your dog is biting when he’s younger than four months of age, then your puppy likely wasn’t weaned properly. Proper socialization should have stopped this behavior before he was exposed to people. If your puppy is biting people when he’s younger than four months old, then you can assume there’s something happening because he wasn’t properly socialized.
What can you do to stop it?
Regardless of how young your puppy is, if he bites you, you need to offer lots of oxy Classical conditioning- the same principles used to teach your dog to sit, shake, rollover, etc. You can do it with these techniques.
For a start, it helps if you act like you’re taking aDON nose when he bites you; when he bites, emit a high-pitched yelp (like a puppy would use if he gets bitten) while looking away from him, at his mouth. Train your dog while he’s mouthing you to give him the signal that you’re hurt. (You know how this works. When he bites, look at his mouth to see if his teeth make contact.) If he backs off, that’s a good signal that he’s submitting. But if he bites harder or occurs during aIT worse– extraordinary results will happen. Stop giving him the treat or ignoring him and give him a yell that includes the word “NO”. You’ll be surprised at how quickly he’ll stop the biting. Give him another opportunity, and so on. If he bites again, repeats the yelping and back away from him. If he bites harder or threatens to bite you again, repeat the techniques. If he bites you again, end the experiment and leave him alone for a while or get a substitute, such as a chew toy.
It’s natural for your puppy to bite, but if you become too patient, or if you let it go too long, you’ll be faced with a stronger form of biting in the future. You can’t fight it. You’ll have to accept it as part of your dog’s natural behavior.
There are products on the market containing compounds that dogs don’t like, such as bitter apples. They produce a foul odor and are said to discourage dogs from biting. Two of the best methods are to get him and his playmates together in the same room so that he learns his lesson that biting means no one has permission to munch on him. Another method is to distract him with a treat or squeak behind him. When he starts to bite, you say no firmly while giving him the treat. Having a different dog in the same room may confuse him, but it won’t harm him and he’ll soon get the message that biting means no food.
Training is needed at the earliest time when a puppy is able to form a healthy attachment to its owner. Yorkie puppies are easiest to train as they are intelligent, but may take a bit of time to master. Your Yorkie puppy will be able to form a happy and healthy attachment to you throughout its life through constant and consistent training that is rewarding both for the puppy and its master. Before beginning any type of training, you want to make sure that your Yorkie puppy is healthy. accidents in the home, Chewing, housetraining, and barking are all potential problems that you may need to address in the training. You should handle these problems in turn.
You should never use violence on your Yorkie puppy when it bites or when chewing on your belongings. You should draw the line, however, between acceptable biting and biting that is too hard. The Yorkie puppy should also be socialized enough that it does not become immediately angry with strangers or other dogs. You should also draw a hard line between acceptable play and rough play.
Chewing is a common issue with many Yorkie puppies. Puppies have an innate desire to chew in order to see what is inside them. Teething, also known as pain in the gum, can also cause chewing problems. You must teach your Yorkie puppy that there is a special place to chew on its toys rather than your hands. You should keep your hands away from its mouth. Use gloves, rather than gloves, when you are handling your puppy’s chew toys.
Puppies also tend to bark as a means of communication. yours in particular may bark to indicate that it needs to go outside or are hungry, both of which may indicate a need for food or an opportunity to go out. Although you should expect some barking, this should be no cause for alarm. Your Yorkie puppy may occasionally misbehave, but when it does, it is most likely when you are away from home. If you, therefore, plan to spend a good deal of time away from your Yorkie puppy, at least initially.
Before bringing your Yorkie puppy home, you may also want to purchase a crate, dishes, and bedding for it. You may also want to purchase toys and a leash for your Yorkie puppy as well. It is also a good idea to purchase a crate coaching manual to help you in preparing it to become an obedient dog. Crates serve many purposes, including providing the dog with its own space. Crates also allow you to house train your Yorkie puppy by training it to take care of itself in the crate.
It is also important to purchase a leash and collar for your Yorkie puppy. You will want to begin leash and collar training as soon as you bring your puppy home. In the first weeks of its life with you, the puppy will be most like to follow you. Once it is old enough to accompany you on trips outside, it is important to train it to avoid distractions and to insist on using the same route every time. A Yorkie puppy has loads of energy, and misbehaving or playing with it will likely elongate the training process.
You can avoid many problems by keeping a sharp eye on your Yorkie puppy, especially when it is first getting used to its new home. A puppy that is too wild and extreme may need some extra care and attention before it begins to settle into its new home. If you let the puppy’s behavior continue into the first two months of its life, you are likely to be significantly extending the effort required to train the dog.
Dogs are naturally curious creatures, and they will get into just about anything to investigate. While you should try to keep things out of reach that could harm your Yorkie puppy, you also need to get them into the habit of obeying commands.
A clicker and/or a chewing toy can be used to help train the puppy. If the puppy gnaws on the toy while you are not watching, you can simply take it away and then give the puppy back the chewing toy when it obeys the command for it to chew on it. When the puppy understands the game and starts to play in a way that reinforces its actions, you can start conditioning them to accept just about any type of condition.
