GoldenBuddies.com: An Online Community for Fans of Canines


White Haven, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) December 12, 2009

http://www.goldenbuddies.com/ GoldenBuddies.com, an online community and blog that includes a message board for members, has published several new pages about Golden Retrievers and dogs in general, including “Dog Obedience Classes,” “Golden Retriever Movies,” and “Goldendoodle Dogs.”

The page “Dog Obedience Classes” from GoldenBuddies.com explains the purpose and value of dog obedience courses. These classes easily teach new dog owners how to train their dogs in basic commands, like ‘sit’ or ‘stay.’ The page warns that overly aggressive dogs are better off in “behavioral training courses” that attempt to rectify more complex problems, like biting, that dogs have.

“Golden Retriever Movies” provides an overview of several famous movies featuring Golden Retrievers. According to GoldenBuddies.com, Air Bud is perhaps the most successful and widely recognized of the Golden Retriever movies, having resulted in seven sequels and spin-offs. The two Homeward Bound films also feature an elderly Golden Retriever named Shadow, and are appropriate films for the entire family. Fluke is perhaps the most mature, adult-themed of the Golden Retriever movies detailed, and centers around a man who is reincarnated as a dog.

The Poodle’s “curly, fleece-like fur” that is considered to be “hypoallergenic” is one reason for the popularity of “Goldendoodle Dogs.” This page on GoldenBuddies.com discusses several of the distinguishing traits which make this designer breed a success. Besides the hypoallergenic fur associated with the breed, another cited benefit of owning a Goldendoodle is their improved health, a result of “hybrid vigour.”

About GoldenBuddies.com:

GoldenBuddies.com was launched in September of 2008, and produced blog entries about homemade versus store-bought dog food, Goldendoodles, and hunting with Golden Retrievers. The community and message board are more recent additions to the site. Website Business is responsible for designing and maintaining the site structure of GoldenBuddies.com.

Dog Training – Dog Ticks

Dog Training – Dog Ticks

Dog ticks are another one of those terrible little pests that can really irritate your dog during the summer or warmer months of the year, theses creatures hid in grass and other surfaces and insert themselves within your dog’s skin in order to live off your dog’s warm blood.

Ticks are especially bad for carrying diseases and enjoy and can survive in the nice warm heat of your home, ticks get carried into the home on pets and preferably dogs and once they have had their feed, fall off and seek cover in a safe area out of site which makes theses pests hard to find and get rid of.

A tick’s life can be up to around 2 years long, and within that time the tick can live on 2-3 hosts to maintain its feeding habit, this feeding habit only happens at certain times of the year around august to November.

Ticks are a fast growing arachnid that lives and are born on long grassy areas, and climb to the top of leaves and grass to wait for a host to feed off and survive off, theses arachnids can live off many different animals and not just dogs, theses commonly include humans, birds, and mice. Ticks get and carry diseases from theses other animals and can spread them to their next host which may be your dog.

During the summer months it is important to check your dog regularly by running your hands through the dog’s fur and coat to check for small lumps, some pressure is needed to detect these pests and it is wise to check thoroughly every day during the hotter months.

If you detect a lump or suspicious area then you should part the hair or fur to investigate further, you should be able to see a brown tick digging beneath the skin if there is one there. Popular areas to find ticks is in places that do not have much fur for the tick to climb through, these include the face, paws and behind and around the ears.

If you detect a tick, you should notify and take advice from your vet or a professional; if you remove the tick yourself you may leave part of the tick still within your dog’s skin which will be irritating for the dog.
