Siberian Huskies And Kids

Siberian huskies are loving dogs that crave companionship, and as such, tend to make very good dogs to keep with children. Siberian Huskies are known for their sweet, good nature. They are known to be friendly and energetic, playful, and eager to have fun-characteristics that pair well with the high energy of children. Siberian Huskies are pack dogs that are used to living in a family community; this translates well into the household, where the dog will take to the humans in its life as its equal pack members. The dog will enjoy being a part of the family and will enjoy the good-natured play of children. As a pack dog, a Siberian Husky might display concern for their fellow pack-mates and offer some guardianship, but in whole, Siberians are no guard dogs and cannot be relied upon as protectors of anything or anyone.

Sealyham Terriers: Pets or Not?

It cannot be denied that there are certain dogs that can never be considered for pets. These dogs are those independent and aloof ones that could live without getting the affection of its owners. Usually these dogs are those fierce and aggressive ones that are used for guarding homes and belongings. On the other hand, there are dogs that thrive on the companionship and friendship of the family that it belongs to. These dogs are usually the ones that could never live without being with people all the time. Meanwhile, there are also other dogs that you could not really fully decide on whether it is a pet or not.

Is the Saluki Dog a Good Indoor Dog?

The Saluki dog has been around for many thousands of years yet is very unfamiliar to many people. In fact, many people have not even heard of the Saluki dog. When they hear about the dog, they instantly become interested because of its wonderful qualities as a pet. More and more dogs are being kept indoors and treated as members of the family, rather than outdoor dogs as they were years ago. The Saluki dog is kept in the house by most owners and they become very attached. This is one quality of the Saluki - they cling to their owners. The Saluki makes a wonderful indoor dog.

The Saluki: Are They A Good Children's Pet?

The Saluki is a very well mannered and sensitive dog that makes a very good family dog. They enjoy being around children very much. They are particularly good with older children that treat them gently and with love and respect. This does not mean that they are not good with younger children, because they are very good. Many owners with young children often complain about the dog hovering over and licking the young children too much. The way the Saluki is trained as a puppy plays a large part in what they will be like as an adult. When the dog is socialized around young children at a young age, they usually grow up loving, respecting, and enjoying time spent with the kids, young and old. The one thing most owners noticed about their Saluki was that when the dog wanted to be left alone, he should be left alone to relax or do what he wants. Many children need to respect the Saluki in that aspect. Because the dog is so thin in body size, the dog shouldn't be roughhoused too harshly. [...]

If you're getting a dog for the first time, you are probably uncertain as to what breed of dog to get.
