animal cause a number
So, you have weighed the pros and cons, and decided to get a little puppy. You feel the need to track its growth and development, “fashioning” your future friend day after day. But how to recognize among the tiny living lumps of someone who will become a welcome pet, and will not bring many disappointments into your life? How to choose a puppy so that subsequently you do not regret what you did?
The first step towards finding your dream dog is a thorough analysis and selection of the breed, taking into account their advantages and disadvantages. Assume also that you have decided on the gender of your dog. And now, having already a fairly clear idea of the baby, think again: how do you see the future of your dog?
Choosing owners for my puppies, I noticed that potential buyers are primarily interested in their appearance. The least familiar with the standards opt for the largest and plump kid; the most sophisticated – try to acquire the most pedigree puppy. Continue reading
And then the baby found himself in your house. He faces a difficult task – to grow into a healthy, obedient and efficient dog. And it is you who should help in this – the owner, tutor, teacher, defender, doctor and friend. The growing up of a dog under your constant control can be compared to the work of a sculptor, who carves a magnificent statue from marble. And you need to start this work as early as possible. Better – from the first days of the appearance of a puppy in your home. The results of your joint efforts will not slow down to manifest. You will see, day after day, how your four-legged friend grows, becoming bigger, stronger, smarter and more and more attached to you.
Remember: a puppy should not be taken outside until the entire vaccination complex has been given to it (see “Caring for the puppy’s health”). Take him to the room that is specially prepared for the new tenant. As a rule, as soon as the baby is put on the floor, the first thing he “marks” by letting a puddle. Then he continues the ritual of acquaintance with the new territory, necessary for all animals. At these moments, the baby’s brain does an unprecedented amount of work, processing a huge amount of unfamiliar odors, sounds and visual images. Do not bother him, wait until he gets a little comfortable. Continue reading
First of all, give your baby a name. Often, puppies born in the kennel are called breeders, and it is customary that the names of the littermates begin with the same letter. This official name with the prefix in the form of the name of the nursery or breeding farm is recorded in a puppy card. For example, my rottweiler is called Miro from Floyd’s House. Some breeders come up with the most fantastic nicknames for their pets in the form of long foreign phrases.
Naturally, in a home environment, such a dog is not called by his full name, but is shortened or transformed into an endearing nickname. Sometimes the “home” name is completely different from the official record in the family tree. However, for the dog it does not matter what they call it: Baby or Monster – the main thing is that the nickname be short and sonorous. The nickname is the main repetitive sound combination that the puppy hears from the mouth of the owner. Use the nickname only as a positive incentive – for example, when you want to caress a puppy, feed or please with a new toy. After a while, having heard a familiar word associated with pleasure, the puppy will give up all his affairs and rush to your call. Continue reading
