The heat is on!And people are exploring ways to cool and somehow reduce the heat around. Most will head off to the beach to cool down, others would strip off into less clothes and body coverings and enjoyed showing off their skin for a tone. While some enjoy trimming off hair on their heads and go bald and blunt. People will do whatever they wish to do just to get some relief from the burning feeling of the summer heat. And since people are often times accompanied by their pets on getting some summer fun, the thought of shaving their furs and hairs can make them thought it would also be better for their pets to groom for summer and shave off toshow some skin too. But hold onto that shavers and scissors tight! There are certain risks that you might just want to know about getting those hair that covers their body off them. Read on and be informed:Double coats.Dogs and cats normally have double coats of hair and fur. This was their genetic design. These coats help them to cope with varied weather conditions.Regular grooming.For breeds with natural thick coats, regular grooming could help them cope and regulate varied temperatures.No close skin shaved.Leaving some allowance of short hair on their body can help them still shield on the attacks of various skin diseases like sunburn, dirt and allergies. Get a professional pet hair groomer to do this task to avoid overly doing the clipping and avoid hurting your pets.Careful with clippers.They not only have sharp edges but improper use could only lead to some unwanted accidents.Regular coat brushing.Though many may thought brushing their pets’ coat was a way to groom them, brushing will keep their coats shiny and tangle free. Regular coat brushing is also a healthy way to massage their skin and keep their body and skin healthy and clean avoiding skin diseases brought about by dirty and embedded dust and dirt where bacteria could thrive. Coat brushing also keeps free flowing air easily into their body refreshing and cooling them leisurely.Regular bathing.The best way to cool our pets during hot summer season was to have a daily regular bath. This will condition their body to withstand summer heats. Pools and swimming adventures are great deals to have relief from the summer heat.Shaded place.Keep their special place in the house away from direct sunlight and heat.Plenty of water to drink.Always check their water bowl and fill clean, fresh often.Our pets, generally dogs and cats have a certain natural way on how to deal with varied weather conditions. They do not cool nor warmth the way we humans do. Shaving their furs and hairs do not basically improve temperature cooling down and in some instances can expose them to other health risks. Consulting and seeking the advice of your Vets would prove beneficial before trimming off their covers. We humans can cool off easily but not our pets. They will always be at our mercy for proper care in keeping them cool on hot summer days and warm on cold winter nights.

Okay I really want a Rottweiler, yes I am ready and am capable of taking car of one.

But, because of over breeding they now have week bones especially hips and shoulders and too much protein is bad for them. I was wondering if I could give them a special diet and excersise routine to benefit these problems and maybe even prevent a fatal problem. So for excersise, is swimming good for dogs bones and joints? I know its great for human bones, joints and muscles. And just to be safe with the hips I reckon I won't be teaching it agility with the jumps as it may put pressure on hips and possibly shoulders? I will of cause walk him everyday. Diet, well I want to keep a healthy, fit dog so I was wondering should I get high Quality dry food, wet food tends to make my previous dogs get runny poos, and too keep the bones strong would it be alright to feed my dog a special calcium milk or powder to sprinkle on the food for my dogs? Or can I get daily vitamins for that? I really want whats best and I need to prepare if I am going to get a Rotty!

Hello guys,
I saw a deal at Amazon dog training collar with remote in 25% off offer.

Enjoy!!!

For many of us, our dogs are our constant companion. They serve as our
antidote to our stress, anxiety and other burdens in our everyday lives. That
is why we took care of them like they are an integral part of us and our
family. We try everything to make them healthy like us so that they can be with
us longer and enjoy each other’s company. We took time choosing the best for
them like our own children. Taking them to the vet to check and maintain their
being. Comfort them by making them feel secured in our homes. Feed them healthy
and nutritious food to make them lean and fit so that they could move free and
active as they are. And most importantly loving them for they certainly have
been loyal and affectionate to us. As part of the process of our interaction
with them and aside from feeding them their regular meals, we give our dogs
rewards and treats for their loyalty and specifically making and bringing joy
to us. Dog treats can either come in the form of a toy or a food treat meant
for them. There are basically a lot of dog toys they enjoy and one can grab one
from anywhere. From a stick in the yard to a 'Kong' doll from a pet store. But
a great healthy alternative to treat your dogs are the so-called 'dog treats.'
Unfortunately, only a handful of those commercial dog treats are worthy on
their nutritional value needed by your dogs.

And of all those I've tried, Milkotein Dog Chews and Bites does amazing
wonders to my dog. He certainly gets to be more active, his coats gets more
shiny and bright, His alert level increases as well as his resistance from
diseases and other regular canine conditions. Much fresh smelling licks that
his regular wet food. Got stronger teeth. Maybe because Milkotein as it was
written on its label is made with the highest level of protein: 77%. It
is long lasting because my dog enjoys eating the bar for days. It is basically
as hard as a 'bone' but definitely without the risk chipping or chunking as the
dog bite. This is very important because those chips could cause choking
or indigestion that could later be fatal.

This is not about just any dog treat, but Milkotein is definitely more
than just a reward and treat to your dogs. Its a healthy habit in between their
meals and feasts that is amazingly does great nutrition for our dog buddies!

I recently brought a new puppy into my home and have been hearing a lot about people wanting to feed their dog a grain free diet. I think it sounds good and all, that dogs should only eat meat and not any grains, but as humans we need grains to help provide us with energy.

The argument against feeding dogs a grain free diet is based on them not being able to digest them. But from what I have learned, dogs can actually digest grains, but only certain types.

Can anyone help clarify whether or not feeding your dog a grain free diet can actually have a positive impact on keeping them healthy?

My husband bought me a cute little Pomeranian for my birthday this year. Although I love dogs a lot, this is first time I own a dog. I don't know first thing about training a dog. How long will it take to train him then basic things. We tried to walk him. But he is reluctant to do so at times. This can be a problem since we both go to job every weekdays some time in future we may need to use some dog walking service. I am worried if he is not walking any health issues may occur.

My 3 year old shih tzu has a sensitive back when touched. My vet said she may have ivdd, disc disease. Can anyone give me some insight on this? I was told to keep her in a small pen or crate for 2 weeks and she us on pain medications. I am overwhelmed with this possible diagnosis, the unknown us driving me crazy. My little girl is also having a tough time be confined without her freedom to roam. And advice would be appreciated.

Hello! please watch this video of my diving dog, pretty amazing!
