Dog Training Supplies Are Essential for Training Your Puppy

Dog Training Supplies Are Essential for Training Your Puppy

Dogs are a joy to own because they can be loving companions. Studies show that owning a dog can lower stress and provide you with a sense of well being. It is your duty as a dog owner to train your dog for many reasons.

An untrained dog can be nerve wracking for you, your family and friends. Dogs that jump up on visitors, or snap and bite, have not been trained to behave in a socially acceptable way. As soon as you get your puppy, you need to invest in some dog training supplies to get your dog trained quickly and safely.

The basic equipment should include a collar and leash, toys and doggie treats. Collars are necessary for protection and as training tools. Collars come in a variety of materials. Chain collars, leather collars or even electronic collars can be used.

A leash is most important as it allows you to manage and lead your dog when outdoors. It also teaches the dog discipline when you tighten the leash if he is behaving badly. Leashes are made of material or leather. You can also use a harness with the leash for more control.

For unpredictable or aggressive dogs, a muzzle is a must. Muzzles are adjustable and come in various shapes. They are made of plastic or leather. Be careful however that the muzzle does not hurt the dog.

Doggie treats are essential when teaching basic commands. This is known as the incentive method and it is very effective. Giving the dog a treat each time he obeys an instruction is a good way to reinforce his obedience.

You don’t have to spend a fortune on dog training supplies. There are many online dog supplies sites that offer excellent value. You can also compare prices and have the goods delivered to your door.

Finally, one of the most effective ways to train your dog is through affection and praise. When your dog behaves and follows commands, give him a big hug and praise him profusely. Dogs respond well to affection and are always eager to please their owners.

Q&A: Dog allergies – any temporary solutions?

Question by BeagleMommy: Dog allergies – any temporary solutions?
A few weeks ago, I took my dog into the vet and he gave her several shots for “seasonal allergies” because she has had chronic ear infections lately and also has been chewing on her paws a little bit. The vet also gave her an antibiotic for what he called “pustules” on her paw pads. He said the allergy shots he gave would last a few weeks and then she should be okay.

Well, I came home from work today and she is now back to chewing her paws… and just a few hours ago she began licking and swallowing to the point where I think she can’t even control it anymore. Her ears seem to be okay, though. For now.

I’m going to be calling the vet in the morning, but does anyone know anything I can do to give her temporary relief so she can rest tonight until we can get to the vet? She just seems so miserable and all I can think to do is sit in the steam with her for a while and hope that loosens up some of her congestion (it’s obvious she’s not able to breathe very easily through her nose right now).

Any other ideas just for now?

Thank you.
Thank you everyone for your suggestions. She has had allergies since she was very very small and I’ve always fed her grain free food. She used to eat Taste of the Wild, but I’ve since switched her over to Earthborn Holistic Grain Free because she likes the smaller kibble bites.
I think this is something she will probably live with for a long time, but the benadryl really helped her in the short term, so thank you for that advice.

Dog Nutrition Tips for Beginners

Dog Nutrition Tips for Beginners

If it is your first time having a dog as a pet, you would definitely have to do some research on the feeding for dogs in general. Asking experts and experienced dog trainers would be a great thing to do, for these people are very much familiar with every essential thing as regards to dogs, from basic dog nutrition to advanced supplements and so on.

Daily Food Intake And Nutrition

All breeds of dogs are generally very active animals and they need good food to keep them moving. For this, you have to keep track of what they eat everyday and make sure that you include food containing nutrients such as Vitamins A, B-complex, C, D, E and K.

Basically you should be aware of the most common form of dog nutrition chart that can be seen either online or can also be found in pet clinics and public service centers. You can find information on the essential food and dietary chart, which will guide you on the most balanced mixture of food containing all the needed dog nutrition.

As we know, dogs should be given healthy foods made from high quality meat, vegetables, fruits, and well-balanced mixture of vitamins and minerals. These foods and nutrients are basically required to build and maintain healthy blood, muscle, and bone structure. Besides the above vitamins given, dog nutrition experts would also suggest you on giving foods rich in proteins, carbohydrates, and nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, boron, chromium, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, sulphur, zinc and many more.

Foods containing high levels of fiber should also be given; for at certain seasons or stages they do not drink water much compared to their intake of food. Water is indeed one of the most important elements of common set of dog nutrition, which is good for their digestive system. So to replace this, you need to make sure that their food is rich in fiber.

Any dog nutrition expert would also advise you on not to give fatty foods and too much of fatty-acid-based foods, because this can lead to obesity in most dogs.

It appears that I have stolen someones dog….?

Question by 10 Below: It appears that I have stolen someones dog….?
It’s not even 11:00 AM yet and i already have a headache… I was out walking one of my Sibes and some woman just out of nowhere shouted “ay where did you get that dog.” I kept on walking not even caring if she was talking to me or not. Out of the corner of my eye I saw this woman come running towards me. We argued back and forth and she tried to prove to me that this was her dog by calling “her” name. The dog is male btw. She kept calling him “diamond” and he didn’t even bother to acknowledge her. She told me “she probably scared cause you be hitting her.” She tried again to get him to come to her but again nothing. I wasn’t about to argue anymore with her. For goodness sake we are grown mutherf*ckers and here we are arguing over a dog. She walked back toward her house and said she was about to call her boyfriend so he could come get “her” dog. Right…. I continued on with my walk and I made it back home without any problems. The fact that she didn’t even know the dog’s gender was enough to prove to me that she was either wanted to steal the dog or that she was just plain crazy. What do you think?
