The majority of dogs have the ability to learn, it’s essential to their growth. They also have a capacity to retain information far greater than humans believe, but it’s their willingness to learn which makes them unlike other animals in the kingdom.

Train your dog, it’s worth it in the end and read a book. Any book people need to read more books.

It’s nice to see dogs do tricks and understand the commands when given but what’s often overlooked yet as important is, what is your dogs Temperament.

.
.

Temperament in the dog world is the equivalent of Character in people.

.
.

A person with a good character is one of high integrity, courage, fortitude, honesty and loyalty. These attributes are held by many dogs, the issue is how to find a pet with the right temperament and how to nurture to oblige to human contact.

.
.

Most everyone whom brings home a dog hopes for their pet to have a good temperament but hoping isn’t good enough. Finding the right temperament comes down to firstly asking yourself: what do YOU want and expect from your dog in the first place. From that point, finding a dog that fits that perspective is the second part. Working with the breeder or hiring an experience dog trainer can help you pick out a puppy that best fits your lifestyle. Lastly is nurturing its temperament with training, love and rules.

.
.

This can take time and monetary means but look at it this way, you can spend it wisely early on or spend it later to correct problems.

Reading is important, gaining knowledge in the field you’re in will only help better you. With the age of the internet, books became obsolete but educating yourself came to your fingertips, but books are making a comeback.

During the mid 19th century with the Industrial Revolution in full swing, middle class families began keeping domesticated dogs and cats as pets rather than dogs bred for working and/or a purpose.
.
.
Up to that point, the common households gave little consideration to the animals they owned. So a dogs diet consisted of whatever an owner could spare. Potatoes, bread, knuckle bones, cabbage or whatever leftovers they were.
.
.
Around 1860 a businessman by the name of James Spratt saw dogs being fed leftover biscuits from a ship and an idea was born. With a mix of wheat meals, vegetables, beetroot and beef blood the first commercially-prepared pet food was introduced to meet the new market demand of middle class families.
.
.
Using the current nutritional knowledge of the time period, around 1890 a British company took over Mr. Spratt’s formulas and productions sending the business overseas to the U.S. and the commercial dog food craze began to take shape.
.
.
Bet you didn’t know
.
.
A common meat source to purchase in the early 20th century was HORSE meat, as many working horses would die in the streets, instead of disposing the bodies, they were broken down for feed. Commercial canned dog food company “Ken-L Ration,” was introduced in 1922 and its main ingredient was horse meat, a acceptable ingredient source at the time.

What four lines can tell us about soundness in…

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.
