Best House Dogs

The presence of a dog within the family can be beneficial in more ways than one for children. Working with such loyal, intelligent and endearing animals helps them to build their personalities and acquire real-life principles respect, friendship, sharing, among others.

Most children express their own desire to have a dog at home. Tender, playful and protective, they are first class companions for them. It should be remembered however that adopting a dog must be a well thought out act, especially when one has children. You must take into account the fact that having a dog can be worth some problems at the beginning of his education.

Teach your child to respect the dog as much as the education of the dog. The children must also prevail when one considers making them coexist. It is essential to explain to your child that the dog is a living being in its own right and should be treated as such.

In other words, respect it. Generally, a child is able to understand this concept only from 7 or 8 years old.

Make him understand that the animal is not a toy, that he has feelings and needs. The dog can be happy, sad, jealous, confident, suspicious, terrified. He needs to love, to feel loved, landmarks, to feed, to rest, to sleep, to rest.

He is often inclined to play, but may not feel like it at times, because he is tired or sick.

All this must be developed with the child. Also, prepare him for the idea that he will one day have to take care of it and take care of it when he is old enough to do it. Brushing the dog, walking him and giving him his meals helps to empower the child and make him feel valued.

Children’s organisms are vulnerable to bacteria and microbes. The presence of a dog may cause some problems in hygiene, you must pay special attention to this aspect. The dog must, of course, be educated to cleanliness from an early age.

It will take several months to fully integrate, which means that some accidents will occur in the meantime. Hence the importance of deworming the animal and explain to the children that do not touch his droppings.

Also, teach your little ones not to put their hand in their mouth after playing with the dog or with the objects that it has touched. Try to keep the house constantly clean and remove the dog’s hair as much as possible, as these are potentially dangerous to the health of the youngest.

Despite an excellent education and a very good character, it can happen that a dog has an unexpected reaction in certain situations. The toddler (between 2 and 6 years old) can, for example, pull on his tail or walk him on the paw, causing the animal a brief bout of anger, but can have unfortunate consequences.

Stay alert and remind your child to be careful not to rush the dog. Also avoid leaving them alone, especially if your child is young.

Some breeds are known for their kindness to children. The breed alone does not determine the dog’s behavior towards children, we must also stop thinking that small dogs are less dangerous than big dogs. On the contrary, smaller breeds are more likely to resort to violence.

Nevertheless, some varieties have character traits that make them more likely to rub shoulders with them. Another idea to banish.

Small dogs:

  • Cavalier King Charles
  • Pug
  • French Bulldog
  • Coton de Tulear

These little balls of vitality and intelligence are great companions for children.

Medium-sized:

  • Boxer
  • Labrador Retriever
  • Golden Retriever
  • Australian Shepherd
  • Collie and Brittany Spaniel

All of which is very kind.

Large-sized:

  • Leonberger
  • Newfoundland
  • Bernese Mountain Dog
  • Cane Corso
  • Saint Bernard

They combine patience and this ability to bring a sense of security to their little protégés.

 

How to Take Your Dog on an Airplane

For us, animal lovers, the joy of being able to take a pet on an airplane with is a blessing, but without proper planning, it can be disastrous.

dog planeMany people often wonder what is necessary to take their pet on an airplane. It can be a very time consuming and difficult task without proper preparation. The number one thing a pet owner should remember is that every airline has its own set of rules. Be sure to contact the specific airline for the specific rules that pertain to its operations. That is priority number one. Also, be sure to give yourself plenty of time before the flight to get the necessary information. The airlines have given a lot of thought to safe travel, both for you and for your pet.

We should make sure that our pet is not sick, in distress, or violent. Some pets can be sedated for travel, but it is not recommended, especially for very young pets. If you feel that could be a problem, your veterinarian is the best source of information on that subject. Also, make sure your pet has the appropriate and necessary health documentation from your vet.

Small pets can travel in the cabin with you provided they are in a pet carrier that fits under your front seat. There are many great pet carriers on the market that will provide comfort for your small pet. Large pets must travel in the cargo compartment. You should not worry though. Experience from my first profession gives me the knowledge that the cargo compartment is safe and kept at a comfortable temperature for your pet. The air carriers will not allow any pets back there if that system is not functioning properly. Your dog crate or other pet crates should be clearly marked with “Live Animal” and “This Side Up” tags. You should also have your name, address, telephone number, and telephone number at your destination clearly marked on the crate. When looking for a crate for your pet, an industrial dog crate that is approved for air travel will be necessary.

A few general things to consider are: putting your pet’s favorite blanket and toys in the crate, booking a nonstop flight, and not feeding your pet just prior to departure. You don’t want your pet to get airsick, lost, or stuck out on the hot tarmac for a long time. Give your pet frozen water or ice cubes in his or her dog crate or pet carrier. It will melt slowly, keep your pet hydrated, and not spill so easily. Above all, enjoy the company your pet can give you during your travels. Hope to see you in the air.
