Your Dog’s Food and Its Growing Importance
Dog food can be simply referred to as a food that is specifically intended to be fed to dogs for their consumption. Like all the carnivores, dogs also have pointed and sharp teeth and they have a short gastrointestinal tract that is better suited for the consumption of meat. Also in spite of this very natural carnivorous design these dogs have still managed to adapt to over thousands of years in order to survive on the non- scraps as well as the meat scraps and leftovers of human existence.
Why are dogs so important to us as individuals and as families? When we lose this bond through the death of our pet, how do we cope with the grief?Is Your Dog Safe In Your Garden?
The internet is both a mine and a minefield of information! There are many websites that provide lists of toxic and non-toxic plants, some of these lists are extensive and many contradictory in some ways. Not many pages will tell you what exactly might happen to your dog should they eat something so called “toxic” and it could be easy to get paranoid or complacent! If you are concerned about what your dog might eat do your own homework.
A dog may be man’s best friend, but anatomically speaking which species is superior? One obvious difference between dog anatomy and human is the contrast in size (and of course that human’s walk on two legs and dogs on four!) An average human height is 180cm, with the tallest dog, the Great Dane, reaching 86cm, and the smallest dog, the Chihuahua being 26 cm max.You Can’t Socialize Your Dog By Sitting At Home

Unfortunately a person can do more harm than good if not done correctly. Socialization can be accomplished in many ways but forcefully is not one of them.
