What four lines can tell us about soundness in conformation
.
.

Properly using the Four Lines of Balance requires observing a dog in person or using a photo of the dog in the correct position. Either mentally or actually drawing lines in a photo to recreate the four lines of balance.
.
.

The first illustration is a young American Pit Bull Terrier in the correct position to be examined. His hocks and front legs are perpendicular to the ground and the photo is straight from the side, level with the dog not looking down on it.
.
.

The first line is Line “A” line drawn on the dog’s top line. If you aren’t sure exactly where the dog’s top line begins, draw the line beginning past the head, beginning from its shoulder. The dog’s entire head must be above this line when held in a natural position.
.
.

Line “B” is the single most important line. This line starts at the dog’s pro-sternum and runs directly back past the end of the dog’s body. The pro-sternum is that pointy lump on the front of the dog’s chest. The pro-sternum almost always indicates the position of the dog’s point of shoulder. It is common for the pro-sternum line to be placed far too low on the dog’s body, so be aware of placing so the line divides the dog in a perfect half and balance.
.
.

For Line “C” imagine a line dropped from the dog’s point of rear to the ground. With the dog’s hocks absolutely perpendicular to the ground, the line should drop to the front of the dog’s rear toes.
.
.

Line “D” is drawn up the front leg of the dog, with the legs perpendicular to the ground. The balanced dog will have its entire neck in front of this line.

Have you ever heard the quote “you are what you eat” alike people, dogs are what they eat as well. Heart, kidney and liver disease are at epidemic numbers, 40% of dogs are obese in the US. with 46% of dogs dying of cancer in the every year.
.
.

Dry dog foods contribute to gum and tooth disease and dental disease affects over 70 percent of dogs and cats before the age of two.
.
.

So what’s the common denominator here, the Unnatural diets (low quality kibble) we feed them. Let’s open our minds and see what else is out there to offer. Raw meats, fruits and veggies.
.
.

Read my previous two post to get more info on what you can do to feed better and feel better for your pet.

Part 1
Who would of thought discussing fruits and veggies would lead to a contentious conversation about what we feed our pets. Even some veterinarians would only suggest fruits and veggies as an aid to losing weight and/or don’t believe that their necessary for a dog to eat. Some raw based feeders are against fruits or veggies in a dogs diet believing meats provide sufficient nutrients.
.
.

On the other hand they’re are those that advocate vegan diets for dogs mainly due to concerns about toxin levels in (all) meats as well as the quality and nutrition of kibble. On top of that, some type of “greenery”
isn’t bad, period. Read on why
.
.

•Balancing Alkalinity and Acidity: Protein in meat makes the body acidic which can contribute to inflammation of your dogs organs. Organs like the liver, kidneys, pancreas, gallbladder, heart, and gastrointestinal will function healthier in a more alkalize environment.
.
.

•Fiber and Vitamins: Raw veggies are better and healthier than those coming from a grain source, suppling healthy soluble fiber which is easier for your dog to digest. Although meat sources contribute sufficient vitamins, most dogs will still fair well with the added boost that fruits and veggies bring.
.
.

•Please remember: Phytonutrients are only in vegetable material, something meat can’t say and few if any kibble can. Phytonutrients are antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, anti aging antihelminthic (anti-worms), anti-degeneration and, most importantly, anti-cancer. Also remember that fruit and veggies are an excellent source of water.
.
.

•Antioxidants: Vegetables, fruits and herbs are full of antioxidants which protect against free radicals (unstable molecules that are a major cause of aging) and again, you can only get them from fruits and vegetables.
.
.

•Omega 3 and Minerals: Grasses and algae (phytoplankton) have a full complement of essential fatty acids and are rich in Omega-3 which reduces inflammation and supports the brain and central nervous system.

whч dσgs hσwl?
.
.

Howling is a normal behavior, sharing with it’s ancestral background of the wolf.
.
.

A dog will commonly howl when the persistent sounds of a siren is heard.
Howling will also occur when a dog is feeling territorial or stressed out. More than likely a dog would howl to alert to other dogs that they’re getting close to their territory or signal them to leave. I’ve witnessed dogs howling after a few minutes of their owners leaving, it’s like their saying “come back home already”
.
.

In the end maybe your dog likes to hear themselves howl, just as some of us like singing in the shower 🚿

Your dog is a living, breathing animal with feelings and emotions rolled up into four legs. Nobody’s PERFECT especially a dog learning a new word, behavior or command.
.
.

A puppy and/or a grown dog learning a new such should be given space to make mistakes. It’s about teaching and adjusting until the dog gets it and becomes consistent with the word and operation of it.
.
.

Life’s not perfect, you’re not perfect and your dogs not perfect. Stop wasting time in hoping for perfection and just train them to do it natural.

Have you’ve ever wonder why puppies brea…

Have you’ve ever wonder why puppies breath smells the way it does? It begins with a healthy puppy and a hearty dose of its mother’s milk. The lactose in her milk smells sweet and digest easily. The digestive enzymes in your puppy’s stomach breaks down the proteins in her milk which adds to the sweet aroma. Some VETERINARIANS believe that puppy breath may be the result of its esophagus developing.
.
.

If a puppy has bad breath, then it could indicate a serious health problem. The first thing a veterinarian would look at is their teeth. In adult dogs, a problem like gum disease and impacted teeth could lead to bad breath but since a puppy’s teeth are still developing, it’s highly unlikely a foul odor is the result of a dental problem. Checking and cleaning your puppy’s mouth is a good habit to begin while young as they usually don’t like being bothered with when they’re older.
.
.

Intestinal Parasites is another common cause of bad breath. Worms can be passed from the mother to their young through pregnancy and through their milk. Indications of parasites are vomiting, diarrhea, lack of weight gain, brittle hair and coughing. Puppies should be treated and dewormed as early as 5 weeks. A severe worm infestation can cause death.
.
.

Coprophagia is the term, its when dogs eat their own stool. A stage in a pups development is using their mouths much like a person use their hands to touch, feel and learn everything about the world around them. This can possibly lead to why some dogs continue to eat their stool as they get older. This habit will usually go away as the pup matures but some pups can continue the same way a child would suck on a thumb if not stopped by a parent.

28 years of experience in the dog business and I’ve yet to meet a (perfect) dog or person. When your dog makes a mistake, stop and teach them so they learn from it.
.
.

When we don’t show them what’s right and over look the mistake, we are at fault for procrastinating as well as sending the wrong signal to your dog that making mistakes has no consequences.
.
.

We all (dogs and humans) make mistakes. That’s life. It’s how we handle those mistakes is what’s important. All we can do is turn them into learning experiences and use them to grow.
.
.

Dogs will make mistakes, but his owner will do more.

What you do is begin by flipping your dog over and counting how many nipples your dog has 😂 If you actually went and did that, I don’t know what to say. 😂
.
.

Note: a dogs size will typically determine its lifespan, smaller dogs tend to live longer than larger breeds. So how old is a dog compared to a humans age.?
.
.

First off the whole “seven dog years equals one human year” isn’t accurate. Here’s how it breaks down. The first (1st) year of a dogs life is the equivalent to fifteen (15) years of a human life. How? Within the first (1st) year, a dog goes from being born to almost full size, his mental state is capable enough of fending for itself and the dog is sexually mature enough to be bred or have a litter. It’s safe to say a human would fall into the same category.
.
.

This is how the SEVEN (7) years per one (1) dog years was figured out. Humans average life span is eighty four (84) years where a dogs average is twelve (12) years. When you divide twelve (12) into eighty four (84) you’ll get the average of seven (7) years.
.
.

Because of different factors (health, environment, breed) not all dogs would age the same, so an average six (6) year old small dog would be about forty two (42) years old whereas a large breed dog would be about forty five (45) years. Again this is a roundabout of age since many factors can determine age.
