Spotlight on a Breed Great Pyrenees

Spotlight on a Breed Great Pyrenees

Weight:  From 85 pounds

Height:  25 -32 Inches

Coat:   Outer coat is straight or slightly wavy

Color: solid white, or white with patches of tan, wolf grey or pale orange

Appearance

The Great Pyrenees dog conveys the distinct impression of elegance and unsurpassed beauty combined with great overall size and majesty. He has a white or principally white coat that may contain markings of badger, gray, or varying shades of tan. He possesses a keen intelligence and a kindly, while regal, expression. Exhibiting a unique elegance of bearing and movement, his soundness and coordination show unmistakably the purpose for which he has been bred, the strenuous work of guarding the flocks in all kinds of weather on the steep mountain slopes of the Pyrenees.

Temperament

The Great Pyrenees is a capable and imposing guardian, devoted to its family, and somewhat wary of strangers – human or canine. They are often used to guard livestock. When not provoked, it is calm, well- mannered, and somewhat serious. Courageous, very loyal and obedient. Gentle and affectionate with those he loves. Devoted to family even if self-sacrifice is required. It is very gentle with its family and children.

Health

The Great Pyrenees, like many larger, purebred dogs, is prone to hip dysplasia, a degenerative joint disease related to arthritis.  In addition, because of their long, thick coats, they can be prone to heat related issues if in warm weather for too long.

Some Simple Dog Training Advice

webdog 1Having a dog as a pet brings a great deal of satisfaction and happiness for millions of owners and their families, but training a dog is essential if you are to fully enjoy having a dog and if the dog is to enjoy life with you.

Training methods vary greatly but there is one underlying principal they all share – positive reinforcement.  With positive reinforcement you are seeking to reward the animal every time they do what is being asked of them; the command is “Sit!”, the dog obeys and receives a reward or praise – this is positive reinforcement.

Techniques which involve physical punishment or intimidation are ineffective when it comes to training a dog and you should never hit your dog as though this may produce a short term association of pain or humiliation with an unwanted behavior it is terribly damaging to the relationship you have with the animal.  Your relationship with your dog is vital when it comes to training; your dog looks to you for leadership and views you in doggy terms as the leader of the pack; they look to you for companionship, food and shelter but they are also looking to you as their leader and provider of the standards to which they must conform.  When you hit your dog, you are damaging this perception and the animal is less likely to respond positively to you in future and a scared dog is not an animal you want around you or your family.

Positive reinforcement requires patience on the part of the owner; training your dog is a process and not something that will produce immediate and instant results.  Over time your dog will learn the concepts you are trying to teach but where there is a failure or the animal appears to be learning at a slow pace, it is frequently the owner who is actually the root cause of the issues.

When dog training is carried out, we are not actually training just the animal – we are training a team comprising the owner and the dog, and more often than not, the owner is the one failing in the training program.  Professional dog trainers do not take on a dog directly and train them as a rule, instead, they train the owner in how to train the dog as after all, it is the dog will be looking to the owner for leadership and commands in future and not the trainer.

A dog can also be trained at any age however, the sooner training commences the better; the old saying “You cannot teach a dog new tricks!”, does not hold true but it is more difficult to train an animal that has grown and become accustomed to a different set of rules to work and live by.  Dog training should commence while the animal is still in the puppy stage and can commence as soon as the puppy has been weaned and left the mother.  Start the training process with simple behaviors for the dog to learn – sit and heel, are two good ones to start off with.  Make the activity fun and not just fun for the dog but fun for you too and remember this is not a chore and don’t treat it as such as the dog will very quickly pick up on your cues; every dog will closely look at their owner and take everything in and they will very quickly learn your moods and your personality traits.

Lastly we always recommend dog treats and chews like bully sticks as training rewards as they are a great reward an will naturally keep teeth and gums healthy!

Spotlight On A Breed: Beagles

A Tri-Color Beagle

A Tri-Color Beagle

Weight: 18-35 lbs

Height: 13-16 inches

Coat: Smooth coat

Color: tri-color (most common), two color (tan and white), various others

Appearance

Beagles are a mid-sized breed with a generally lean body, a broad chest, and eyes that appear to be pleading much like a bloodhounds. Eye color is typically brown or hazel. Strong jaw and neck makes them excellent at tug games or at working over bully sticks or similar chews.

Temperament

Beagles are even tempered and are a great family dog, as they get along great with children and other dogs. They are playful and while they can be standoffish towards strangers at first, they can easily be won over. For this reason, Beagles are typically very poor guard dogs, though their tendency to howl or bark does make them good watch dogs.

Beagles are pack animals and can be prone to separation anxiety. Intelligent, they have been bred for the long chase and can thus be very single-minded and determined, which can make them hard to train, though they do respond to training with dog treats. Not demanding with regard to exercise read more…

New Chicken Breast Fillets

New Chicken Breast Fillets

After 8 months of searching we have found (what we think are) the only Chicken Breast Fillets for dogs that are made outside of China.  The current fillets that we carry and will continue to carry are extremely high quality, but we have had a lot of requests from customers to find an alternative or complimentary manufacturer that is not located in China.  These new chicken fillets are single ingredient (just chicken breast) and are made in Brazil.  These should be considered dog treats for large or small dogs and are sure to be a favorite!

As is typically the case, because these are made in South America they are more expensive.  They come in a re-sealable zip top pouch in 8oz bags.  We are sure that you will appreciate the quality of this product.

We will continue to offer our existing chicken fillets because they are an exceptional value and have never had any issue with the manufacturer, which is an extremely large dog treat and chew manufacturer.

Supervising Your Dog

Supervising Your Dog

We like to remind all dog owners especially those unfamiliar with bully sticks and how their dog(s) will react to them, to make sure to supervise your dog when giving any treat or chew including bully sticks and dog bones.  Some dogs that are not used to bully sticks may get extremely excited and try to swallow it quickly rather than chew it; this is also common with dog bones.  It is important to ensure that your dog is grinding a dog bone down rather than trying to “bit it”.  Biting on bones (because they are so hard) could be harmful especially if done repetitively.

We also want to stress that it is of particular importance to supervise smaller breeds of dogs, as they have smaller internal systems.  We recommend taking bully sticks or any other chew like an Antlerz, away from your dog when there is 1-2 inches left.  While all of our products are safe and fully digestible it is still important to supervise your dog to ensure that they do not have any adverse effects.

We appreciate all of your continued business and as we continue to bring on many new customers, we are trying to ensure that everyone is properly educated on how to feed treats and chews.

Spotlight On A Breed The Pug

Pug

Weight: 14-30 pounds

Height: 9-11 inches at the shoulders

Coat: Short (but they do shed)

Color: Fawn, Black, Silver, Apricot

Appearance
The Pug’s appearance is characterized by their flat, wrinkled faces, compact muscular bodies, and curled tails.

Noise

While most Pugs do not bark much, many do, and they are still quite a noisy breed of dog. Many Pugs make a grunting nasal noise, that increases when they get excited, nearly all pugs snort quite often, almost as if they are sneezing, showering anyone who is too close.  In addition, many of them have quite a snoring problem.

Temperament

The Pug is a popular breed as a house pet, as it is easy to groom (though it sheds substantially more than other dogs of similar size). However, pugs like to consider themselves as the boss. Therefore tiny children who do not understand how to correctly treat the pug can cause the pug to be scared, defensive, or shy. Pugs are true “lap dogs”, in that they most often want nothing more than to curl up in their owner’s lap.  Pugs like most breeds also love dog chews like bully sticks to occupy them!

Health

Pugs can scratch their corneas (corneal ulcer) or puncture their eyeballs. Their short noses can also cause them to develop breathing problems. They are also prone to skin infections if the crevices in their faces are not kept clean. Additionally, the breed’s characteristic flat face may also contribute to tooth and mouth problem, they may have crowded teeth or a tongue that hangs out. Pugs typically love to eat, and so are prone to obesity; they can quickly reach unhealthy weights.
