Chain Dog Collars Are Not For Small Dogs

For bigger dogs a regular collar might not be sufficient. Unless your dog is super obedient, chain dog collars are the best solution. You do not want to put one of these on small dogs since the collar itself may well outweigh your dog. Small dogs, although quite unruly and hyper, can easily be picked up to avoid any confrontations or accidents. A big dog, however, is somewhat difficult to scoop up into your arms.

For example, a German Shepard that is not properly trained will jump on everyone she sees. Known to be the most trainable breed, there are always exceptions. This, of course is due to the owner. A German Sheppard needs training and disciple. Chain dog collars are not enough. You have to be firm with them. They respect authority...

‘Tough’ Dogs and Leather Dog Collars

If you’re a dog owner, when you think ‘leather dog collar’, you are likely not picturing a Basset Hound or Cocker Spaniel wearing one.

Typically, leather dog collars are worn by the large and working breeds (like the German Shepherd or Saint Bernard). These dogs are generally big and physically hardy and were bred to assist their human counterparts with labor-intensive tasks like sled-pulling, guarding and/or moving materials or goods and search and rescue.

So why do leather and the working breed (sometimes referred to as the ‘tough’ dog) go together? When you have a dog that weighs 80 pounds or more, you need to have a collar [like leather] that will hold up to their strength and power...

Myths About White Boxer Dogs

White boxer dogs carry with them many myths. Apparently the fact that they are different seems to be a problem indicating that there is something wrong or a weakness involved in their heritage or birth. This is far from the truth, and when you learn the facts, you just may want one for yourself.

White boxer dogs are purposefully bred to be white. Just as other breeds are bred for certain characteristics, so are Boxers. Approximately 25% of all that are born are white. They are not a rarity and should not be considered as such.

These beautiful white dogs are not albinos. An albino has no color pigmentation at all on their bodies. A white boxer dog will have some color in their coat...

When deciding what dog to have in your home, there are many things to consider. If you have children or other pets then you need a breed that will be good in this situation.

Pet Beds For Dogs

Pet beds for dogs (affectionately known as “doggie beds” to we “dog parents”) provide a comfortable place for your pet to sleep, as well as a space that your pet can truly call his own. Although you may think it’s cute and cuddly to simply have Rover curl up next to you on the couch or sprawl next to you on your bed, pet beds provide a number of advantages, both to you and your dog, over other types of “people furniture.”

As hardy as we like to think our pets are, dogs, too, can get chilled easily. Most dog beds have a soft plush cover and relatively high sites. This can keep your pet warm and cozy even in a relatively chilly room, because it helps protect your pet from drafts.

People furniture is made for, well, people...

The History of Boxer Dogs

As with most other pure breeds, the boxer dog’s history is covered in some uncertainty and small inaccuracies. Although not the oldest of breeds, the boxers have soon managed to spread all around the world, becoming one of the most popular family dogs of our times, as well as an appreciated working dog. But let’s go back a few hundred years and see where the history of the boxer dog starts.

By the 1800’s, Belgians had raised a new breed of dogs called the Brabanter Bullenbeisser, which were trained to become hunting dogs, even while they were still puppies. Descriptions of the Brabanter Bullenbeisser show that it was a strong dog, with a solid constitution, but one that did not lack the ability required for a hunting dog.

Elite nobleman from Germany soon heard of this specializ...

Skin Issues of Dogs

Skin problems of a dog can be a big challenge to dog owners all over the world. These same problems can cause mad itching and scratching by your dog. This rapid fire and constant scratching can drive both dog and owner insane. Itching of this kind is known as pruritus. The tendency of developing skin disorders vary from one dog to another.

Dogs experiencing pruritus typically are healthy both nutritionally and physically. However, skin irritation and loss of hair is noticeable. A veterinarian will go over everything with the dog’s owner regarding diet, medication, activity and anything else that may seem relevant. This history of the dog will alert the vet to anything the dog does on a regular basis.

If the dog loves to pay in the swimming pool or dig in the dirt, he’s goin...

Pet Tags for Dogs

Pet Tags for Dogs. I could possibly remember fondly the time when my partner and I lost our furry friend and without a dog tags for dogs attach to him, it’s some sort of headache to have your own pet found. The dog suddenly got lost on the roads one morning and there wasn’t any means of identifying the owner, subsequently he eventually got deported to the dogs’ shelter. I cried for days and then finally gotten him when my neighbor who visited the animal shelter noticed him and informed us to take him back. All this could be avoided by utilizing dog tags for dogs. These kinds of basic and sometimes fashionably accessories are generally hung on the neck of your doggie along with details about his owner and his name.

The purpose of a pet tag is to provide...

Where Did Dogs Come From?

Where Did Dogs Come From? To be passionate about our beloved Dog companions it is only sensible to learn of their unique heritage. I started at my local library and found close to sixty or seventy book on dogs; training, health, companionship, and books on individual breeds each supporting the awesome benefits and contributions that the domestic dog has given us humans.

I found some controversy as to when our partnership with the dog first occurred. Precisely when the relationship formed between man and dog or man and wolf, is impossible to establish, but the dog was most likely the first animal to be domesticated...
