Caring for a Dog


It has long been said that a dog is a man's best friend and it has
earned its right to be called that, and it will continue to occupy the
place closest to man for another lot of years to come. Man's best
friends come in many shapes, sizes, colours and textures because of
thousands of years of evolution and breeding.

The search engine that I used was www.google.co.uk and this is a
screen shot of it.

The bullmastiff is gentle and quite, a devoted companion and guardian.
It is not easily roused, but once threatened it is fearless. It is
stubborn and cannot easily be goaded into action against its will.
Some can be aggressive toward strange dogs, but it is generally good
with other household dogs and pets. It is good with children, but it
may not be playful enough to satifsfy some children. The Bullmastiff
needs a firm but loving home. It is not for fragile or timid owners.

In our genetic makeup there are traits that hold certain qualities that are different from others. Genes determine our height, skin color, and presumably defines a bit of our personality. This genetic variety makes it easier for us to understand ourselves better and at the same time our indifference from others. When humans are conceived , we have no control of the genes that we will inherit. However, in the case of animals such as the pit bull, the ease of manufacturing a dog to our desire is shocking....   [tags: Blame, Mauling, Genetics]

The Doberman Pinscher is an intelligent capable guardian, ever on the
alert and ready to protect its family or home. It is also a loyal and
adventurous companion. It likes to be mentally challenged, and is a
gifted obedience pupil. It is sensitive, and very responsive to its
owner's wishes, though some can be domineering. It is generally
reserved with strangers. It can be aggressive with strange dogs.

intent on its mission -whatever that may be- that it is virtually
unsurpassed in working versatility. It is utterly devoted and
faithful. Aloof and suspicious toward strangers, it is protective of
its home and family. It can be domineering. It can be aggressive

The svelte Pharaoh Hound is more than a gracious addition to the home
(though it surely is that)-it is a keen hunter and an exuberant
chaser. Although it is calm indoors, it loves to run. It is sensitive,
loving, gentle, and good with children and other dogs, but it may
chase strange animals. It tends to be reserved with strangers; some
are even timid. It is independent but willing to please. The breed has
the unique characteristic of "blushing" when excited, with the nose
and ears turning a rosy colour.

The Pointer is a true wide-ranging hunter, which means that it not
only is an excellent bird dog but also has the stamina to run for
hours. Consequently, it needs lots of exercise or it can become
frustrated and destructive. Because it is ever on the lookout for
birds, it is easily distracted from everyday matters -but it is nearly
impossible to distract once on point. It is gentle and sweet but may
be too energetic and boisterous at times for very small children. Like
many sporting breeds, it can be found in field or show types; the
field type is generally smaller and perhaps more active.

Confident, bold, alert, and imposing, the Rottweiler is a popular
choice for its protection abilities. As befitting its self-assured
nature, it tend to be headstrong an stubborn and is often domineering.
It is reserved, often wary, toward strangers. It may be overly
protective if it perceives that its family is being threatened, and it
may also attempt to "herd" children. This is a powerful breed that
needs socialization, consistent training, and daily exercise to be the
best it can be -a loyal family member and guardian.

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a fun-loving character that loves
playing with its family and friends. It is typically playful,
companionable, amiable, docile, and generally responsibe to its
owner's wishes. Its love of a good game is rivaled only by its need
for human companionship. It is also characteristically friendly toward
strangers. Some can be strong willed. Although it doesn't usually look
for a fight, it is fearless and tenacious. It may not do well around
strange dogs or sometimes even household dogs that challenge it. It is
generally very good with children; although usually gentle, some can
be rambunctious. In the United Kingdom the Stafford is known as the
Nanny Dog, in reference to its eagerness and ability to assume the
role of a child's nursemaid.

wants a fun-loving companion

These dogs are calm and quiet, but are very cheerful, attentive and
alert.

I have shown above a few breeds of dogs that intrigued me and the ones
I thought other people might be interested in too. It is very easy to
go on any site I will describe later and find out things about the dog
that you, personally, are interested in. the pictures above are those
from the www.terrificpets.com site. It is very easy to operate and
fast to find what you need.

Cats and dogs have become one of the best-equipped animals of our
time. Animal lovers want the best treatment for their little darlings
and go to the extremes of ordering a masseuse for their animal as well
as themselves. People have taken advantage of this and have created
many companies that sell animal friendly and comfort made products
like toys, food, clothes, leads, houses, grooming services,
hairdressers, dog carriers, pet ID tags etc. No species have developed
a closer relationship with humanity than the dog (although cat-lovers
may disagree), which is why they get the most recognition.

Because we live in such a technological world it is very easy to find
a lot of help on the net. All you really need to do is to switch on
your computer, connect to the internet and go to either "google" or
"msn" search sites, type in "dogs" and everything you could ever think
of is going to be right there in front of you just a click away.

New dog owners would never need to worry about how to look after a
dog, what to do etc as everything is already out there for you to look
at, enjoy and learn from. It couldn't be easier. The sites are a lot
of fun too so you wont just have to stare in to a boring black and
white screen and read hours on end, everything is made interesting and
fun for you as well as your little companion.

Below are just a few examples of some colourful and relevant sites
that I have come across: www.terrificpets.com

[IMAGE]

On this site as you can see there are a lot of information and
everything is easy and entertaining. Everything you could ever think
you might need is right there made available for you.

Another example is this one: www.i-love-dogs.com

[IMAGE]

As you can see there is really hardly anything that you wont find to
do with dogs, you can even have dog comics!

This is the last example that I will show you: www.unclematty.com

[IMAGE]

This site is generally very entertaining and useful at the same time.
As you can see it's very eye catching as it is very colourful, and
very nicely presented for the reader.

I have tried to give you all the information that you might need/want
to know to find out about how to care for your pet dog. As you have
seen there are different varieties of dogs and not all enjoy the same
treatment or need the same treatment as another dog. So you would need
to take your time and explore what your dog needs and you would get
the same back from them as they are very sensitive. Hope you find this
useful and I have helped you in some way.
