Puppy testing

The most complete information regarding the personality characteristics of puppies can be obtained as a result of special tests. Babies aged 6 to 8 weeks can be objectively checked for fear of loud sounds, pain threshold, nervousness, dominance, the presence or absence of hunting and protective instincts.

What is dog functionality

Not one, even the most intelligent and strongest dog, can master all dog professions and perform all functions without exception. Like no living organism can be universal and operate flawlessly in any conditions. Features of a dog can be divided into: basic features; basic behavioral reactions; functional qualities.

Feeding the Black Russian Terrier

Despite the fact that the Black Russian Terrier is a practically omnivorous breed, it is worth taking the dog’s diet seriously, as improper feeding leads to growth disorders and various diseases.

Nutrition should be varied and balanced. The black terrier, however, like other dogs, best digests and assimilates animal feed (meat, trimmings, offal, poultry, fish, dairy products). Although dogs have an increased acidity of gastric juice (to break down animal proteins), they can also use plant foods. The basis of the diet should be meat products, since food waste from the owner’s table and other plant foods cannot satisfy the dog’s body needs for proteins, fats and trace elements. When these dogs are fed plant food, their skeleton and bones of the extremities are deformed, their coat condition deteriorates.

Raw meat does not contain denatured protein, and raw fat has an ideal chemical composition. Boiled foods lose their nutritional value. Continue reading
