Working With Finicky Eaters

Many Yorkshire terriers are happy to eat anything placed in a bowl in front of them while others start that way but gradually become discriminating nibblers and finicky eaters. If your Yorkie suddenly goes from being a good eater to a very finicky eater, it could be a sign that your Yorkie is ill so be sure to have your veterinarian examine him to rule out medical problems. [...]

Pekingese, They Are What They Eat

Feeding a dog is often a matter of trial and error to find the correct dog food for your dog. Finding the correct dog food for the dog is more than just finding something that the dog will eat, but rather finding a good quality dog food. A dog food that is good is one that your dog not only enjoys, but also it is nutritionally healthy for them. Many Pekingese owners have a difficult time getting both of these accomplished. [...]

Newfoundlands and Obesity

Newfoundlands may not adjust well to a small yard or small apartment because of their sheer size. Because Newfoundlands are naturally large animals, owners may make the mistake of overfeeding them and cause obesity to develop in their pet. Newfoundlands are a husky breed, sometimes referred to as "Gentle Giants", at an average weight of 130 to 150 pounds and a height of 26 inches for a female and 28 inches for a male. Thus, they require a huge amount of food but the key is in the type given to the Newfoundland to avoid ill-effects on his health. [...]

Taurine and Newfoundlands

Newfoundlands seem to be prone to a deficiency in taurine. Different breeds are susceptible to various illnesses for a multitude of reasons, thus researchers obtain grants annually to investigate these illnesses just as they decided to do years ago in the case of the Newfoundland. Newfoundlands tend to be prone to more heart and eye problems than anything else and it seems that taurine may be a factor. Taurine's main purpose is to facilitate potassium, sodium, and calcium to cells. When there is not sufficient taurine in a dog's diet then a condition known as dilated cardiomyopathy occurs. [...]

Grooming the Australian Kelpie

Grooming your Australian Kelpie is fairly simple as their coats are relatively short and need little maintenance. However, there are a few things you can do to keep your Kelpie in tip top condition! [...]

Overfeeding and the Min Pin

If there is one concern that every new Min Pin owner should know about, it is the issue of overfeeding. Though full of energy, the Min Pin is a small dog that has certain calorie requirements. Upon receiving a pup from a reputable breeder, a new owner will likely receive a week long supply of what the dog has been eating and detailed instructions for a daily feeding routine. [...]

Choosing the Right Food for the Australian Terrier

A healthy, nutritional diet is what keeps your Australian terrier healthy, feeling his best, and looking great. Feeding your terrier a healthy diet can save money in the end by reducing your veterinarian bills. [...]

Feeding the Miniature Schnauzer

Dog ownership is a huge responsibility and feeding your dog and ensuring they receive a nutritionally good diet is probably one of the biggest concerns you will have. Common sense will tell you that a German Shepherd is not going to eat the same kind of food that you would feed your Miniature Schnauzer and vice versa. [...]

Easy Feeding, Grooming and Care for the Basenji

The Basenji is a unique breed that has unique requirements for care. As they are now a combination of domesticated canine and wild dog, their system requires a diet that needs a certain amount of attention. They are also extremely clean, detesting water. Even with no doggy odor, there can be times when the Basenji will require a bath and general grooming. They are a small dog that is fairly self sufficient but still need all the care that goes with keeping a pet healthy. [...]

The Maltese's Diet

Feeding your dog is one of the most common things you do for your pet every single day and even though you may think that any dog food available in the market can be used to feed your dog, this is where you are wrong. A Maltese is a pretty hardy dog. However, they have rather sensitive stomachs which mean that you may have to be careful with your food selection for this kind of a pet. A Maltese puppy may need a different kind of food than its adult counterparts but they still basically need similar considerations regarding nutrients like carbohydrates and proteins for their proper growth and all around health. [...]

Labrador Retrievers and Weight Issues

Labrador Retrievers are mellow, laid back and friendly dogs that have easily won their place in the hearts of many families. They are ranked as the most popular of all family dogs. Although they are classified as working dogs, the average Labrador retriever has a fairly easy life style as a pet and family dog. The Labrador retriever is a large dog with an even larger appetite. Their weight can range anywhere from 45 pounds to over 80 pounds, with males usually weighing more than females. Although some Labrador retrievers do have an active lifestyle, most don't have the activity level to match their appetite. [...]

Irish Setter Exercise and Nutritional Needs

The Irish Setter is a fairly large breed as well as one that was historically bred for strenuous activities like tracking and hunting. As such, their exercise needs tend to be very high and it's all the more important to ensure that they receive a properly balanced diet. Try and keep the following things in mind to make sure that your Irish Setter is on the right track. [...]

What the Active Brittany Needs to Eat

The Brittany is a high energy dog but never in a neurotic sense. They are a grounded breed that simply loves to be out and about or where ever their owner is. Nonetheless, their lean towards an active lifestyle will make certain calorie requirements an issue. Dogs have a number of various systems to support and the improper balance of protein, fatty acids, and vitamins can lead to health problems that span from the minor to the major. [...]

The Everyday Life that Will Make Any Brittany Happy

No matter what the activity is or where it takes place, being included is the Brittany's favorite activity. Whether it's sitting in front of the TV at the end of the evening or taking off for a family hike in the woods, the Brittany will expect to either lead the way or bring up the rear. Though they are a high energy breed, they are not hyper but perceptive and intelligent. Those who seek out a Brittany for their own can look forward to many years of having a good family dog or a great hunting buddy, both with an all round champion heart. [...]

Brittany Coat Care and Tail Docking

While it varies from dog to dog, for the most part the Brittany's coat will be wavy or somewhat feathered; especially on the chest, the legs and the hindquarters. The Brittany does shed regularly but many owners report that with the amount of time the dog spends outside, the quantity seems quite minimal. One of the main draws of owning this breed is their lack of doggy smell as compared to other types of dogs. This is also part of their benefit as a gun dog; no odor allows the Brittany to get as close to its quarry as possible before setting up the point. [...]
