Is a high energy dog right for you?

Now is the time of year, many people look at adding a new addition to their family, often cuteness wins out over common sense. All puppies are cute but they don’t stay that way for long. Before buying a dog, research the breed, ask yourself if you have the time or the energy, especially if you decide to get a high energy dog. They need to be worked, they like and need to be doing something, 365 days of the year. A bored dog can be very frustrating and destructive because today, many dogs have lost the jobs, they were bred and born to do.

The article “How to live with a High Energy Dog without loosing your mind” is funny and informative and a must read for anyone, who is looking to add a four legged canine friend, to their family.

Get fit With Your Dog

Taking your dog out is a great way to get fit and have some fun at the same time. Whether your dog is big or small there is always lots of  things you can do together. Keep in mind the breed and age of your dog, for example, young dogs shouldn’t be running non stop, for long distances because it may cause bone or ligament damage. Here is a great article written by the late Sophia Yin titled : A New Year’s Resolution for You and Your Pooch: Get Fit with your Dog

Dog Behaviour Problems

Dog behaviour problems seem to be on the increase, especially aggression, if you have a problem do something about it right away. As with any behaviour or training issues there are no quick fixes, Work has to be done on a daily basis. There’s no such thing as a quick fix, it can take lot of time (depending on the problem) and effort, on the part, of the owner.
