Boston Terrier

beloved dogs......


Dog Information :

This article is filled with Boston Terrier dog information about this all American furry friend. The Boston Terrier breed was created by Boston resident Robert C. Hooper who purchased a cross between an English Bulldog and an English White Terrier at some point during the later half of the 19th century. Robert C. Hooper bred his dog – which got the name Hooper's Judge – with a smaller female to bring down the size, and one of the resulting puppies was then bred to yet a smaller female. This offspring was then subsequently bred with French Bulldogs. The Boston Terrier breed was first shown in Boston in 1870 and the American Bull Terrier Club was created in 1889. In 1893, the name was changed to the Boston Terrier Club.  

Dog Care :

Since the Boston Terrier has a short snout and an elongated palate, it is prone to snorting, snoring, and the so called “reversed sneeze”. If your dog gets exited or over-heated and starts to snort and gasp for air, it is best to calm or cool it down. These “attacks” are not dangerous and your dog will not suffocate, but it can be a frightening experience for the terrier. Sometimes rubbing the throat to induce swallowing can stop the reversed sneeze. An important part of Boston Terrier dog care is to protect your dog from excessive heat and harsh cold weather, and refrain from too demanding forms of exercise. Boston Terriers are also prone to eye injuries since they have flat faces with protruding eyes, and it is a good idea to establish a contact in advance with a qualified veterinarian so that you know exactly what to do if your Boston Terrier sustains an eye injury. 

Dog Puppy :

The Boston Terrier dog puppy is a charming little fellow, but before you decide to bring one home you should ask yourself if it is the perfect breed for you and if you are willing and able to care for this new family member for the next 13-15 years. Will you be able to devote sufficient amounts of time and energy to your dog, and is your budget large enough to allow for veterinary care and check-ups? The Boston Terrier dog puppy might seem healthy as a horse right now, but the Boston Terrier breed is plague by several health problems and assuming that your dog will never require veterinary care is not a good idea. You should also avoid getting a Boston Terrier dog puppy if you dislike drooling dogs, flatulent dogs and dogs who snort, snuffle, sore and wheeze. Getting a Boston Terrier dog puppy is a good idea if you can deal with the problems described above, wants a dog with a low-maintenance coat, will have some patience when it comes to house-breaking, and wants a robust dog – not a tiny lapdog. The Boston Terrier is usually a affable dog that befriends people and other pets alike. 

Dog Training :

Boston Terriers have a tendency to dislike being told what to do, and you must therefore be even more stubborn than you dog during Boston Terrier dog training. Even basic Boston Terrier training, such as housebreaking, will usually require a lot of persistence from the owner. Even with consistent crate training, it can take up to six months for a Boston Terrier to become fully house trained.

Dog Breeders :

When you choose between the available Boston Terrier dog breeders, it is important to stick to serious and knowledgeable ones that strives to promote good health in the breed. The Boston Terrier breed is prone to several health problems, including luxating patellas, heart murmur, cataracts, cherry eye, deafness and allergies. Some Boston Terrier dog breeders focus solely on outer appearance, while others focus solely on producing as many puppies as possible to make a lot of money, and both types of breeders should be avoided since their breeding strategies increase the chance of health problems and unstable temperaments. Unfortunately, neurotic, aggressive and hyperactive Boston Terriers are today all too common; partly due to genetic factors and partly due to poor socialization. You can greatly decrease the risk of getting such a dog buy purchasing from knowledgeable and serious Boston Terrier dog breeders only.

Your Dog Have Ear Infection??

beloved dogs....

Your Dog Have Ear Infection??

What are ear infections?

Ear infections are a problem for many dogs and dogs with hanging ears, e.g. the Basset Hound, are especially susceptible since the hanging ears limits the air flow and creates a warm and moist environment. Dogs with narrow ear canals, such as Cocker Spaniels, are also more prone to ear infections. Allergies can also increase the risk for ear infections, and parasites that infest the ear of your dog should naturally be dealt with promptly. Dogs suffering from hypothyroidism are also more at risk of developing ear infections. 

Symptoms of ear infection in dogs :

When an ear infection irritates the dog, it will often try to scratch the ear or the region right under the ear. It can also start to shake its head in an effort to get rid of pain and itchiness. Some dogs will paw the ear, or rub the affected ear against other objects such as furniture.

If you take a closer look at an infected ear, you can often see that the colour of the ear has change to a darker red than normally, often with a generally inflamed appearance. The ear can also look dirty.

Ear infection treatment for dogs :

First and foremost, the veterinarian needs to determine the cause of the ear infection and if the ear infection is the result of any underlying problem, such as a parasite infestation. An ear infection is usually treated with a combination of ear cleaning and medicines. An ear infection caused by bacteria can be treated with antibiotics; an infection brought on by fungi requires anti-fungal medication (fungicide), while insecticides will kill a lot of parasites.

The vet will instruct your how to clean your dog’s infected ear. An ear infection can create a lot of byproducts and proper cleaning is necessary. It is important to use the right technique, since you might otherwise push infected material into the ear. In most cases, the ear should be cleaned once a day. Always follow the instructions from the vet.

When the infected ear is clean and dry, apply the medicine. The most commonly used forms of ear infection medication are ear drops and ear ointments. Most infections will be cured after two weeks of treatment. 

If the underlying cause is an allergy, the vet can provide you with more advice as to prevent further problems. In most cases, removing the thing that the dog is reacting to will be enough, e.g. changing its diet. In other cases, allergy medication suitable for dogs will be necessary.

Bullmastiff Temprament :

If you are looking for a true best friend, the Bullmastiff might be for you. These large and powerful dogs make excellent companions because they are so loyal and protective. They will want to go with you everywhere, be part of everything you do, and will not do well behaviorally if they do not get the attention they crave. They are good with children and are protective of them. They are quiet dogs, but will bark loudly when they sense a threat. They are not always good with other dogs, and can show dog aggression, so it is important to socialize them early in life. They are natural guard dogs and can be territorial to a fault. While it is great that they will protect you with their life, they can also get into trouble by not allowing any other animals to trespass onto "their" property. Bullmastiffs are faithful, sensitive, intelligent, and eager to please. They are laidback (unless threatened), fearless, active, docile, spirited, and famous for the unconditional love they show their humans. They are confident and can sometimes be stubborn. Their famous flaw is their slobber. You need to be prepared to keep a slobber rag in every room in your home, and you might consider offering one to your guests when they walk through your door, as your Bullmastiff will most certainly slobber on them as well -- Bullmastiffs do not discriminate with their slobber. Bullmastiffs are active but do not require excessive exercise, and can live happily anywhere, including apartments, as long as they have lots of company and are given lots of attention. 

Bullmastiff Training :
The Bullmastiff is harder to train than most other dog breeds. He learns new commands more slowly than the majority of other breeds. You will need to be extra patient when Training him.

Bullmasiff Grooming :
The short coat of the Bullmastiff only requires an occasional brushing. But because he sheds you may find yourself brushing him once or twice a week to remove loose hair. (What you get out with a brush doesn't fall out in your home!)

Jack Russell Terrier

beloved dogs....

Jack Russell Terrier

Jack Russell Temprament :
One word: feisty. These little guys are full of energy and character, and can be alarmingly assertive. In fact, some people find their energy levels to be overwhelming, and the Jack Russell will not do well with a confined living arrangement or a sedate lifestyle. They need to be busy and they need a lot of exercise! They are both a working dog and a companion dog, and are equally adept at killing rats in your barn or beating the crap out of your slipper. They are highly intelligent and will amuse you for hours on end. But you will earn it, as they seem to need an extraordinary amount of human attention and discipline. If you don't train them, they will train you. Jack Russells tend to be aggressive with other dogs and will chase cats and other small animals. They are bold and fearless little guys and are not intimidated by other dogs of any size. The Jack Russell is first and foremost a hunting dog, so is bred to bark, follow a scent, roam around, and dig. Be careful that you don't lose sight of them, as they have been known to go on hunting binges, and can stay "lost," underground, in pursuit of their prey, for days on end. They will need a fenced-in yard to romp around in, because it is nearly impossible for them to get enough exercise on a leash. You will need to be committed to ensuring that the fence is secure, because Jack Russells are escape artists. They can also climb fences. The Jack Russell is an extremely loyal and loving family pet and will do well with gentle children. However, a Jack Russell will not tolerate abuse from anyone, certainly not a child, even if the child doesn't know any better. Jack Russell Terriers will be hopelessly devoted to you, and might even become possessive of you. They do not do well when left alone for extended periods of time. So be prepared for a full-time, high maintenance, best friend! 

Jack Russel Trainning : 

The Jack Russell Terrier is moderately easy to train. He learns new commands at the average rate. He is neither difficult nor easy to train.
Jack Russell Grooming :
The short coat of the Jack Russell Terrier only requires an occasional brushing. But because he sheds you may find yourself brushing him once or twice a week to remove loose hair. (What you get out with a brush doesn't fall out in your home!)

Dog Information :

The Dachshund is a short-legged dog with an exceptionally elongated body. Just like the other members of the hound group, the Dachshund was bred to assist hunters by tracking or chasing wild game. Dachshunds are specialized in flushing badgers and other burrow-dwelling animals and will also scent and chase the animal. The miniature Dachshund was developed to hunt rabbits only. An interesting piece of Dachshund dog information is the fact that scars do not necessarily constitute a fault during dog shows. The Dachshund is a hunting dog and having scars from honorable wounds are therefore not viewed as an imperfection. 
In English, the Dachshund it is sometimes colloquially referred to as wiener dog, hot dog or sausage dog, but some owners find these terms derogatory. The word dachs means badger in German and hund means dog. In Germany the names Dackel and Teckel are however more commonly used for this breed than Dachshund.

Dog Care : 

The amount of required Dachshund dog care depends somewhat on which type of Dachshund you chose: the smooth Dachshund, the Wirehaired Dachshund or the Longhaired Dachshund. Even if you get a Dachshund that does not require extensive amounts of grooming it is still a good idea to groom it regularly, especially when it’s a puppy. Gentle grooming sessions will make your dog comfortable with you handling it and this will make it much easier for you to cut its claws, care for it when it is sick and so on. A Dachshund dog care session can for instance include coat care, eye care, ear care, claw care and teeth care. During the shedding season you can bring your dog outside to give it a hand massage – this will help remove discarded hairs and prevent them from ending up on your furniture.
Proper Dachshund dog care involves checking the eyes of the dog to make sure that they look clear and bright, and sniff the ears to detect any signs of dirt or infection. Other symptoms that should prompt veterinary contact are redness, swelling or sensitivity to touch. If the air passage inside the ear is blocked by hair, use a pair of scissors to remove the excess hair.
Bathing should not be a normal part of your Dachshund dog care sessions, because too frequent baths will dry out its skin. How often you have to bath your Dachshund depends on coat type and how dirty it gets when playing around outdoors. It is important to pick a good shampoo that prevents dry skin. Dry bathing is another alternative, but keep in mind that strong dry bath products can irritate the skin. 

Dog Training :

Originally bred for hunting purposes, the Dachshund is today trained for a wide range of purposes. Its minute size have prevented it from becoming a popular service dog, but it can still serve as a valuable companion and is commonly found in pet-friendly retirement and convalescence homes where it brings a smile to the faces of its human companions with its lively, happy-go-lucky personality. 
Dachshund dog training can also involve training your dog for sports, e.g. Dachshund racing, earthdog trials and scent tracking events. Before you engage in any Dachshund dog training for racing purposes, it is important to remember that Dachshunds are inclined to develop back problems. Dachshund racing should be a fun, playful activity – extensive training and competing can cause severe injury. During earthdog trials, Dachshunds enter tunnels with dead ends and obstacles in search of bait. The bait can be artificial or consists of a small live animal placed in a protective cage.

Dog Breeding :
When choosing between the various Dachshund dog breeders, it is important to pick a serious breeder that strives to use only healthy dogs as parents and provide both them and their puppies with good care. If you want to know more about how to stay clear of “puppy-mills” and other seedy Dachshund dog breeders, contact your local Dachshund club or kennel club.

The Dachshund breed is known to have spinal problems, such as intervertebral disk disease, which is partly caused by their extremely elongated spinal column and peculiarly short rib cage. Both occurrence and severity of these spinal problems has been shown to be largely hereditary, and Dachshund dog breeders must therefore strive to eliminate unhealthy genes from the breed. If you get a so called “double dapple” Dachshund there is also an elevated risk for blindness and deafness and many Dachshund dog breeders are today refraining from promoting this colour variation.

beloved dog...

West Highland White Terrier 

Dog Information : 

The West Highland White Terrier is a small, spirited dog with a friendly, energetic disposition. Due to its relative independence, it can be left alone for reasonable amounts of time without developing separation anxiety. The West Highland White Terriers, commonly referred to as Westies, offers a lot of dog in a small package and are especially popular in urban areas since they can have a great life even in a small apartment as long as the owner takes them out on frequent walks and play sessions and provide the dogs with both physical and mental stimulation. In this article, you will find a lot of interesting West Highland White Terrier information. Did you for instance know that the breed is the mascot for the popular Scotch whiskey Black & White? 

Dog Care : 

In addition to exercise, frequent brushings is the most time consuming part of proper West Highland White Terrier care. Brushings are important to keep the coat clean and distribute the natural oil evenly throughout the coat of the dog. Frequent baths are not recommended, because this can dry out skin and coat, especially if shampoo is used. When you have to bath you Westie, use a detergent-free dog shampoo for soft skin. Even without frequent baths, Westies are prone to dry skin. Another important aspect of proper West Highland White Terrier care is to clean the inside of the ears suing a cotton ball or piece of cloth to prevent oil and was build-up.

The West Highland White Terrier puppy looks like a small, white fur ball and most people fall in love at the spot. Before you decide to get one for yourself, you should however sit down and ask yourself if you are willing and able to provide this dog with the right care for the common 10-15 years or even longer. You should also ask yourself if the West Highland White Terrier is the perfect breed for you. Getting a West Highland White Terrier puppy is a good idea if you want a vigorous dog in a small package. It is not a good idea if you want your dog to join you on long bike rides and similar, since this terrier is very energetic but tire fairly quickly and needs frequent naps throughout the day. 

Dog Breeders :

The West Highland White Terrier is a cute little dog and this has unfortunately made it a perfect breed for puppy mills that produces as many puppies as possible without caring about the physical and mental health of the breed, nor of the individual dogs. When getting a Westie it is therefore very important to stick to serious and knowledgeable West Highland White Terrier breeders that strive to minimize the risk of poor health in the breed.
