Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed: Yorkshire Terrier (Yorkie)

Buster the Yorkie w/ bully stickBuster the Yorkie w/ bully stick (Flickr photo by alexanderhansch )

Height: 8-9 inches

Weight: 7lbs

Coat: Yorkshire Terrier quality, texture and quantity of coat are of prime importance. Hair is glossy, fine and silky in texture. Coat on the body is moderately long and perfectly straight (not wavy). It may be trimmed to floor length to give ease of movement and a neater appearance, if desired. The fall on the head is long, tied with one bow in center of head or parted in the middle and tied with two bows. Hair on muzzle is very long. Hair should be trimmed short on tips of ears and may be trimmed on feet to give them a neat appearance.

Color: Yorkshire Terrier puppies are born black and tan and are normally darker in body color, showing an intermingling of black hair in the tan until they are matured. Color of hair on body and richness of tan on head and legs are of prime importance in adult dogs, to which the following color requirements apply: Blue: Is a dark steel-blue, not a silver-blue and not mingled with fawn, bronzy or black hairs. Tan: All tan hair is darker at the roots than in the middle, shading to still lighter tan at the tips. There should be no sooty or black hair intermingled with any of the tan.

Appearance: The Yorkshire Terrier is a small dog, weighing 3.2 kg (7 lbs) or less, with a glossy, long silky coat that hangs straight from a part that runs along the middle of the head, back, and tail. The coat is dark on the back with a tan chest and tan on the head and legs. Small erect ears are covered with short, deep tan colored fur. The tail was traditionally docked but today the Yorkshire Terrier often has a long tail, held a little above the level of the back, with long, dark fur parted down the middle.

Temperament: One of the world’s smallest dogs, the Yorkshire Terrier is a cheerful, sociable, and adaptable little creature. Affection and loyal, yet courageous and confident, this is a dog that is suited to both experienced and inexperienced owners. These dogs make great companions and loving pets, with their love for being pampered or cuddling up with their owner. Yet, in true terrier style they have plenty of spirit, are agile, and have a very inquisitive nature. Training the Yorkshire Terrier shouldn’t prove too much of a problem, as he is very intelligent and quick to learn. Housebreaking, can be a quite a task.  These little dogs will certainly bark to raise an alarm, making them effective watchdogs.

Early socialization is recommended with the Yorkshire Terrier to promote stability and confidence. Although he is not overly demanding in terms of exercise, he does have plenty of energy and will appreciate a place to frolic and play. However, this must be a secured and safe place, as he is inquisitive, agile, and an avid chaser, all of which could spell trouble should he escape. He can also be easily injured or bullied by larger dogs, so he should not be allowed off his leash when out and about. Despite his size, the Yorkshire Terrier will often try to dominate other dogs. They do tend to get along fine with other pets. When it comes to children they are best suited around older, gentle kids. These are very small dogs that can get easily injured and scared by rough, boisterous children. The Yorkshire Terrier is a versatile creature that is just as happy dashing around the garden and playing as he is cuddling up and getting thoroughly pampered.

Health: The life expectancy of the Yorkshire Terrier is around 12-15 years, and there are a number of health problems to look out for with this breed. This includes luxating patella, liver problems, inflamed pancreas, low blood sugar, allergies, dental problems, and sensitivity to chemicals and drugs. He does not fare well in cold weather and should be provided with a jumper if out and about in the rain or cold. He must also be protected from rough handling and heavy object because of his size and fragility.

Proper Pet Etiquette for Bringing Dog to Work: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 24

*Jun 22 - 00:05*Are you lucky enough to work for a pet-friendly company or own your own business? Then as a pet owner bringing  your dog to work is a quite a perk.  Well, before you pack of your dogs briefcase, lunchbox and head to the office here are some pet etiquette tips for a working dog.

1. Take only well-behaved socialized pets who are comfortable around strangers. If your pet shows any sign of  aggressive towards people & other pets, especially co-workers leave at home.

2. Your dog should have basic obedience training and understand commands, such as SIT, STAY, No and DOWN.

3. Make sure pet vaccinations are up to date and that you have a current vaccination records on hand. Also, remember your dog will most likely come in contact with other dogs so it is best if your pet is spayed or neutered.

4. Fight the war on fleas by taking the proper precaution. Use flea preventive before taking your pet to work.

5.  Groom your dog to put his or her best paw forward. Bathe, brush and clip nails before office visits. Remember smelly and dirty pets don’t make good co-workers resulting in a filled up complaint box.

6. Proper work accommodations is important for your pets safety. Make sure your cubicle or office can comfortably accommodate your dog.

7. Don’t forget to pack your dogs lunch bag & other basic necessities. Make a list of items to bring, so you don’t forget. Bring bowls, food, treats, chews, leash, collars w/tags,  pet carrier, toys, poop bags, clean up supplies (in case of an accident).

8. You are your pets top dog & supervisor.  With such a great privilege comes much responsibility. Dogs must be kept on leash, and/or in a closed office or cubicle, or in a crate. You can even create a sturdy cubicle barrier or put up a folding fence. If you have an office then postage notes will become your best friend. Post a note on your door to alert other co-workers & delivery people that you have a pet in your office.

9. Reward your dog with treats & praise for good behavior.

10. Be sensitive respectful of people with allergies and fear of dogs.

11. Make sure your dog use his or her library bark. Keep the dog quiet, especially during conference calls.

12. Avoid taking dogs to company meetings which can be a major distraction.

13. Some areas of the work-place should be office limits. Designate pet-free zones such as conference rooms, restrooms and cafeterias. You don’t want your dog begging for co-workers lunch in the cafeteria.

14. Give your dog a potty break & clean up. Plan your day so you can walk your dog outside a few times during the day. With all the excitement of  new surroundings your dog may need more breaks.  Remember to clean up with poop bags in hand.

Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed: Shiba Inu

Happy satisfied Best Bully Sticks customer & beautiful Shiba Inu named Robin Hood, enjoying her bully stick!!

Happy satisfied Best Bully Sticks customer & beautiful Shiba Inu named Robin Hood, enjoying her bully stick!!

Height: Males 14 1/2 inches- 16 1/2 inches &  Females 13 1/2 inches to 15 1/2 inches

Weight: Males 23 lbs & females 17 lbs

Coat: The Shiba Inu has a thick double coat. Outercoat should remain stiff and straight. The undercoat should be soft and thick. This breed has bushy hair on its tail and its hind legs

Color: Shiba Inu may be red, black and tan, or sesame (red with black-tipped hairs), with a cream, buff, or grey undercoat.

Appearance: The appearance of the beautifu l Shiba Inu is mostly determined by its muscular and compact body. Its regular measurements are 14 to 16 inches of height and 18 to 25 pounds of weight. It has a square shaped body with rather short but strong legs. Its neck is wide and powerful as so is its muzzle. The head is broad and the ears appear to be really small in proportion. They are V shaped and naturally erected. The eyes are round, large and dark with an interesting expression. Finally, the Shiba Inu coat is really gorgeous: it is short and tight to the body, soft to the touch and available in different colors. It covers the entire body of the animal.

Temperament: A spirited boldness, a good nature, and an unaffected forthrightness, which together yield dignity and natural beauty. The Shiba has an independent nature and can be reserved toward strangers but is loyal and affectionate to those who earn his respect. At times aggressive toward other dogs, the Shiba is always under the control of his handler. While the Shiba has an independent nature, this breed enjoys being a member of a pack and should not be left alone for long hours.

An independent, strong minded, and hardworking dog, the Shiba Inu is a creature with plenty of spirit and courage. These are not clingy dogs and are not overly demanding, but can be willful and stubborn, making them best suited to those with experience of dog ownership. The Shiba Inu is adept and digging and climbing, and is a confirmed pursuer of just about anything that crosses his path – it is essential that they are in a safe and secured area whenever they are not on a leash. Very fast and agile, the Shiba Inu is an intelligent dog and thrives on interaction and mental stimulation. The Shiba Inu needs consistent training using positive reinforcement or they can be difficult to control. Early socialization is recommended with the Shiba Inu to promote a more stable temperament.

The Shiba is a fastidious breed and feels the need to maintain themselves in a clean state. They can often be seen licking their paws and legs much like a cat. They generally go out of their way to keep their coats clean, and while walking will avoid stepping in puddles, mud, and dirt.

Health: The life expectancy for Shiba Inu is about 12-15  years. Health conditions known to affect this breed are glaucoma, cataracts, hip dysplasia, and luxating patella. Shibas are also prone to food allergies. Epilepsy is also becoming common in several bloodlines in Australia and the USA. Overall; however, they are of great genetic soundness and few Shibas are diagnosed with genetic defects in comparison to other dog breeds
