Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed: We Salute Shiloh Shephards

We always love getting emails from our customers & readers asking us to feature their dog or favorite breed for our Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed blog series every Thursday. As always we are honored to oblige. Thanks Monica for submitting your good looking pack of Shiloh Shepherds to be featured in our series.

So give a huge bark of applause to therapy dogs Ty, Kodiak & Bailey. The gang is looking spiffy in their Therapy Dog International Bandanas. They all work at a local residential home for troubled boys.

Shilohs from left to right are: Ty, Kodiak & Bailey

Height: 28 – 30 inches

Weight: Male: 140-160 lbs; Female: 100-120 lbs

Coat: The Shiloh Shepherd comes in two varieties, smooth coat and plush. The smooth coated variety has a thick double coat, with harsh outer hair protecting the undercoat, while the plush coat has a dense undercoat and somewhat of a mane.

Color: Common Shiloh Shepherd colors are solid black, white, red, silver, dark brown, black sable, golden, golden tan, reddish tan, black and tan etc.

Appearance: The slow and steady Shiloh Shepherd dogs, resembling German Shepherds, are characterized by a powerful and athletic build. The muzzle is black in colors and is not too long, narrow or snippy. The eyes are dark to light brown in color. The ears are triangular in shape and carried erect when the dog is attentive. The back is strong and the legs are well muscled. These dogs tend to have s smooth and rhythmic with long strides.

Temperament: Shiloh Shepherd temperament is easy going, calm, friendly, outgoing, trustworthy, protective, courageous, intelligent and highly affectionate. These dogs are neither excessively aggressive nor overly shy. As they can be dominating or stubborn at times, it is essential to train and socialize them right from the beginning.

They are generally good with kids but because of the massive size, these dogs need to be supervised around small children. When properly introduced, Shiloh Shepherd dogs tend to get along well with other pets in the house. These alert and intelligent dogs make for excellent watchdogs.

Health: Shiloh Shepherds have an average life span of 9–14 years, slightly longer than the German Shepherd breed.  Some common health problems in Shiloh Shepherd dogs are Epilepsy, Osteochondritis, Panosteitis, Small Intestine Overgrowth Syndrome, Bloating and similar other dog diseases. Though this breed is large in size still, Hip Dysplasia is less common in these dogs as compared to German Shepherds.

The Beagle – The Small Hound With A Big Personality!

BeagleThe Beagle really is the perfect family pet. As a breed they are known for their happy, affectionate nature and their love of company, whether human, canine or even feline! They dislike being on their own making the Beagle an addition to any busy family dynamic. As well as being extremely lovable they are also very intelligent and always looking to please their owner. They particularly suit active families as they have high energy levels and love exercise.

As soon as you mention the Beagle most people will associate these creatures with hunting. The history and origin of the breed originates in England where they were mainly bred for hunting rabbits and quails. Traditionally they would hunt in packs or pairs but they are also extremely good at hunting alone. Beagles are especially renowned for their excellent sense of smell and it is this characteristic that makes them such good tracking and narcotics dogs. Nowadays, Beagles are mainly kept as companion animals but their strong hunting heritage means that they are extremely persistence and are able to work through problems themselves.

Beagles are a notoriously ‘happy go lucky’ creature which makes them exceptional companions for the average family. Although they are only small they are little bundles of energy. They have lots of stamina and extra energy that they are always looking to use up so you need to make sure you have the time to provide them with regular exercise. Invest in different dog toys and dog treats to keep exercise interesting and make sure that good behavior is rewarded.

Beagles are also incredibly low maintenance. After even the muddiest of walks, all the dog needs is a rub down with a towel and they are clean again! This is due to the animal’s dense, waterproof coats, clean legs and small compact feet; another reason why Beagles are such a family-friendly pet to have! They also never have to be clipped so you don’t need to worry about this expense.

Beagles truly are a great sporting breed with lots of character. They are easy to look after and as long as they get enough love and exercise they are happy! When it comes to food Beagles really enjoy eating and will literally eat anything! However, you do need to be careful not to over-feed them as they will eat whatever you put in front of them. An adult dog will only need one serving of dog food and maybe one dog treat or biscuit a day.

Beagles require very little socialization and are happy interacting with most other animals and humans. They do need companionship and may turn destructive if left alone for hours on end. A perfect home for a Beagle is one that can give them plenty of play time, exercise and regular walks. However, many Beagle owners will warn to keep the dog fenced in a yard at home or on a leash when on a walk as they do have a tendency to follow scents and run off to explore. If you don’t want to spend hours searching for your dog it is best to keep it on a lead!

As well as making great companions they are brilliant watchdogs. They will let you know if someone is at the door by barking, however they are extremely friendly so don’t make as good guard dogs!

If you want a little dog to enjoy walks with, to be affectionate and provide great companionship for you and your family, then the Beagle is the breed for you!

The Center is a dynamic, evolving institution that is an agent of change for the animal welfare world. Not only are we operating innovative and beneficial programs for animals and people, but we are teaching others around the world how to successfully market and promote their programs and stop the senseless death of thousands of animals.

Helen Woodward Animal Center’s passionate belief that animals help people and people help animals through trust, unconditional love, and respect, creates a legacy of caring. Sharing this philosophy with others, the Center inspires and teaches, locally and globally, the importance of the animal-human bond.

Who was Helen Woodward?

Helen Whittier Woodward, the Center’s founder, was committed to making the world a better place for people and animals. In 1972, she and a group of friends envisioned a facility that would encompass comprehensive animal care and public education programs. Through her support and leadership, she guided the facility into one of the area’s most highly regarded animal and human service programs. The California native who maintained a home in Del Mar for 40 years, Helen Woodward dedicated her life to a number of charities, including those for animals, blind people, and the elderly. Learn more about her story
So, why should you care?

How To Make an Oatmeal Bath for your Dog: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 94

Is your dog itching for some relief? Well we have just the thing, a nice, soothing and comfy oatmeal bath. Oatmeal nourishes, moisturizes and soothes the skin. An oatmeal bath leaves an invisible protective oatmeal coating on the skin, protecting it from further itching. Hey this is even great for us humans! Just cue the soothing music and light the aromatherapy candles and you have yourself a spa day. Here’s the simple instructions on making an oatmeal bath for your dog.

1. Blend one cup of plain uncooked oatmeal in a blender until it is a fine powder. Powdering the oatmeal makes the oatmeal dissolve in the water easily. Any type of oatmeal is suitable, as long as it is plain oatmeal. Do not use oatmeal that contains flavorings or sugar.

2. Fill up a bathtub with lukewarm water to a level that will reach the middle of your dog’s chest. Test the temperature of the water on the inside of your wrist. The water should feel comfortably warm. If the water feels cold or hot, adjust the temperature accordingly.

3. Add the cup of powdered oatmeal to the bath water. Use your hand to swish the oatmeal powder around in the water to dissolve the powder. Make sure to mix the oatmeal powder thoroughly so that it does not clump at the bottom of the bathtub. The bath water will turn a milky white color as the oatmeal dissolves.

4. Recheck the temperature of the bath water with the inside of your wrist to make sure that it is still at a comfortable temperature for your dog and adjust it if necessary.

5. Place your dog in the bath water to soak. With your hands, gently scoop some of the oatmeal bath water onto to your dog’s back. Continue to do this every few minutes. Allow your dog to soak in the oatmeal bath for 10 to 15 minutes. Talk to your dog, scoop water on its back and pet it while it soaks.

6. Remove your dog from the oatmeal bath without rinsing the mixture off and gently pat it dry with a clean towel. The oatmeal mixture will leave an invisible protective and nourishing coating on your dog’s skin that will help stop further itching.

You can give your dog an oatmeal bath once a day for up to three days. And once a month thereafter. More frequent baths can irritate your dog’s skin.

Talk to your vet if the itching is not relieved after a few days, chronic itch could be a sign of something more serious or a food allergy. Make sure to rule out flea’s as the cause of your dog’s skin irritation and itchiness.

Boxer Dogs – Your Strong And Energetic Companion

BoxerBoxer dogs are an ideal addition to any family or individual. They are incredibly energetic and sociable creatures and are perfect for those who lead an active lifestyle. As a breed Boxers are inquisitive and devoted to their owners so if you are looking for a loyal companion, these dogs are perfect match. Their loyal characteristics make them excellent watch dogs and protectors.

Even though these dogs are extremely lovable and loyal, they also require a fair amount of training. They are notoriously stubborn especially when it comes to training so be prepared to very patient. It is important to understand that boxers require a lot of exercise and without it may become bored and destructive. Therefore, it is essential to make sure that a Boxer dog is right for you and your family and that you will be able to look after it properly before making a decision. This is only fair for both you and the animal.

The Boxer breed has been around since the 19th century and is thought to have been developed in Germany. Boxers are thought to have descended from a warrior breed of old fighting dogs known as Assyrian Molossian. This dog was notoriously strong and fearless and was often used in battles.

The breed was very popular in Germany in the early stages of development and was known as the Bullenbeisser. The dog was mainly used to hunt and pin down a bull, bear or boar due to its strength and powerful build. The Boxer dog of today is still celebrated for its powerful build and the name “Boxer” was given to the dog as it was known to paw at the ground when playing.

As well as being extremely strong and energetic, Boxers are also a humorous and intelligent breed who just loves to play. They like to be involved in whatever their owner is doing so be prepared to have a constant companion when you choose a boxer. Don’t let the breed’s fighting background put you off, even though Boxers are known for their strong build in actual fact they act just like energetic puppies! This means you need to be prepared to bring home a pet that will jump up on people, will play with other dogs and can chew through just about anything if bored! In order to counteract the destruction, it is important to provide your Boxer dog with full obedience training from an early age if possible, and stick with it. Also provide your dog with plenty of dog chews and dog toys to keep your pet entertained and away from chewing the sofa.

Boxers are really sociable so if you have other pets in the home already it shouldn’t be a problem. They are also great with children, but be warned they can get quite boisterous in play and may knock a small child over so always supervise play. These dogs can be quite distrusting of strangers and it is this that makes them excellent guard dogs, they are also very protective of their owners.

It is important to keep your boxer entertained as much as possible as they can be quite destructive if left alone. Make sure you are taking them for plenty of walks on a regular basis and if possible, spend a lot of time with them as they are prone to separation anxiety. If you don’t have lots of spare time to spend with your Boxer then may need to reconsider your choice. Boxer dogs tend not to make great first time pets as they do require a lot of attention and training. That being said, if you do have the time to devote to your pet you will be rewarded with plenty of affection and companionship. Remember that while Boxers are a handful, the rewards they will provide you with are priceless!
