Off Lead Puppies

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

Most new puppy owners find the task of letting their fluffy, young pup off the lead into the big wilderness a daunting challenge, it’s always a heart in mouth moment.

You can help to prepare both yourself and your puppy for the big event by completing some recall work. I know it seems like an awful lot to teach at the beginning when you’re out and about with your puppy, what with lead walking and heel work etc, etc but recall can fit in nicely with the other work you’re doing.

The Puppy Universe: How they think

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

It’s truly hard to say what and how puppies understand their given name. Sure they hear the sound, and we all know that they are sure to react to it.  However, experts say that it doesn’t mean they realize that the word or the name they are hearing and called for has anything to do with their “self.”

Owners don’t just use the puppy’s name when they are calling them. They also use it when talking to about their pets with their friends. As for example, A puppy hears “his name,” called by his master, he looks up, but no one either the visitor or his master is giving him any attention. He shrugs, and goes back to whatever he was doing. There is a high possibility that the next time someone calls his name he will not even bother to look up. He will think the he has no reason to react to it anyways. He has now been desensitized to his own name. For this reason, some trainers have owners give their puppy pet two names – one is used to address their pet while talking to him and another name to use when they’re talking about him in front of anyone.

Bottle Feeding Puppies

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

Now that you are determined to feed your puppy, you need to really have a bottle to actually perform the task of feeding. Pet stores, veterinary clinics, and pet sections in larger department stores will have bottles specifically designed for nursing and bottle- feeding newborn puppies. If after all the effort and you can’t find one, you can also choose to use a human infant bottle as a substitute.

The actual bottle feeding process of puppies is quite simple. First, mix the milk formula and make sure that it is mixed well and the milk is dissolved as otherwise it will cause the milk’s nutrients to plug in the bottle’s nipple and not be dispersed well.

Ear Problems

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

Unlike us our canine chums can’t tell us when something is bothering them or they are feeling unwell however they do ‘talk’ to us in their own unique way, all we have to do is observe and interpret what they’re saying!

When it comes to problems associated with your dog’s ears they’ll let you know in several ways. One of the most common ways is for your dog to shake its head. A lot of dogs and puppies shake their heads upon waking, like they stretch, so don’t panic if this is all they’re doing. If they happen to shake their head repeatedly throughout the day then there’s a high possibility of an ear problem being present.

Puppy Interaction

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Interacting with your young puppy shouldn’t be a problem, I mean it’s not exactly a chore to roll around on the floor with a cute and fluffy puppy!

Developing a firm bond with your pup whilst they’re young will assist you with their training because if their loyalty sits firmly with you they’ll listen to you, well that’s the general idea anyway! It’s not all about simple friendship either because you’re forming another vital ingredient with your puppy along the way and that’s trust. If your puppy doesn’t trust you then their training regime could prove to be tricky.
