Puppies, Dogs and Kids
Most of us who are dog lovers, learned how important the family dog was, from a special dog (either the pup, the rescue dog or the pound dog) that was the only family dog your parents had. It is a relief to realize that once you have this one special pup, that it doesn’t matter what happens to other dogs in the future. They are your special family member. Whether it was accidental or not, they were your babies. Then you get Foxy. Foxy is your little 5-year-old half-brother from the country. He is really the only one of the three dogs (ivermaid,spay and neutered) that your mom has. Her upbeat personality isuring to a person who never really had children of her own. But, Foxy is now 15, and has never really gotten any children. Foxy is very Chris interprets. He is a cheerfully defiant 11-year-old with a sense of humor who is full of life. That’s more than can be said for most rescue and shelter dogs! While there is little doubt that rescue dogs can make wonderful pets, and are as grateful and loyal as any pet, except for the occasional nip retrieving a tennis ball, there are some important considerations to keep in mind. While a dog will be grateful or loyal for many years to a family that treats him or her with love and warmth, it is important to carefully consider how that commitment will affect you and your family. For example:Should you get a puppy because: A puppy is so cute and he or she is the one that gives the whole family except for perhaps Mom a nip, or even a back rub? Should you get a young dog because YOU missed out on the formative years that your dog is requiring? Should you get a dog that is older and may have bad habits that he or she has already come to pass? Should you select a mixed breed because they blend their traits and may have traits you were not aware of or that a breeder or some other source may have failed to tell you about? If you are a true blue snow heart, a puppy or a young dog may be the right choice for you. They will be happy and loving and loyal and loving and you will have a best friend. But, if you don’t have the appreciation or the time to give a puppy or dog the attention they deserve or require, then you may wish to consider adopting an older dog. Not only is a mature rescue dog someone who is probably already house trained and have a detailed knowledge of the way that dogs communicate with each other, they also have a very mature understanding of the pack structure that dogs require. Yes, they may have had a difficult history but they can be entirely untidy and they will take up little space in your home. You will have to tolerate some sniffing and you will probably be passing through other house hold items, but it is all part of being a dog trainer and pack leader. Everyone has a life lesson to learn from the mistakes of others. Life is too short to waste time Pointing fingers and picking fights with others. That is as a dog trainer should do. You should know at least the basics of pack structure. We will get to know a little more about how dogs understand the pack order and how they live and why they do what they do. Another excellent source of information is your veterinarian. If you start your dog with a backyard puppy socialization class, your veterinarian is likely one of the best sources of information for training and back up for the rest of your dog’s life. If you have a rescue, shelter or private home with several dogs, they may all have similar back up plans if they did not get much one on one attention from their owners. They will usually be quite knowledgeable and recommend you check with each dog owner to get to know one another. Don’t limit your search to your local area. Since so many shelters have adoption programs, you may get a chance to visit them all and see them in person. This is also a great opportunity to get a jump on the dog’s socialization. Be prepared for an interview with the staff person asking questions about the individual dog’s temperament and medical history. So the next time you go to the shelter, reconsider leaving your full name and phone number with the shelter staff. A staff member may have an injury or a recent illness that they สล็อตเว็บตรงไม่ผ่านเอเย่นต์ are not even aware of. That leave a lot of time for other people to take over the dog’s care while you are gone. You owe it to yourself and to your dog to have your pet properly vaccinated and to examine the health of the shelter dogs once you have adopted them on their return. Dogs are all inclined to bark, but not all barking is a bad thing.
