If you have enough room in your car for your dog, this one is for you. It’s all got to do with their amazing scenes of smell. When traveling in the car, we feel the fresh breeze blowing in our hair, but our dogs sense the smell in the air, ten times stronger than when still.
When a dog sticks its head out of the window, they are literally in euphoria. Their Brain, which is packed with sensors, gets overstimulated and the pressured air, blowing straight at their face, envelopes them with great highs. Ultimately, if the window of opportunity is open, the dog is going to seize it.
Wanting to Go Out Constantly
Naturally, dogs want to be outside all the time, however, they get used to living indoors and understand that they go out whenever they are taken out. If your dog (that is used to going out three times a day), suddenly asks to be taken out all the time, it's probably the time of the month (not for your dog, but for the neighbor's female dog).
When a female dog is in heat, your male dog will smell it for miles. Remember: regardless of other dogs and their time of the month, dogs want to be outside as much as possible, so whenever you can take them out.
Look, what warm-blooded creature doesn't snore from time to time? It's just something that comes with the luxury of sleep. So, it's not only your better half that keeps you up with his/her snoring but also your dog can be blessed with this irritating behavior. When a dog snores, it's not only its owners that are kept awake but also itself.
When a dog snores, it repeatedly wakes up during the night (nothing to worry about, as it doesn't have an office to go to in the morning). Dogs are not supposed to snore, and if this happens often and loudly, consult with your vet.
Yes, it is normal for dogs to experience occasional itching, but what if they exhibit compulsive scratching behavior? There are numerous potential causes for this behavior that warrant attention. Compulsive itching in dogs can be triggered by various factors. It may be indicative of an allergy, such as a reaction to the fabric softener used on their blanket or sheet.
Other possible culprits include mites, insect bites, skin infections, or even a sensitivity to the recently purchased dog shampoo. To address this issue, it is crucial to identify the underlying cause through careful observation and, if necessary, seek guidance from a veterinarian. Determining the root cause enables appropriate treatment, ensuring relief for your furry companion and restoring their comfort and well-being.
In the animal kingdom, there is no creature that isn't protective of its food. Then there are dogs. In the wild, dogs (originating from the wolf family) guard and protect their food for a purpose of surviving. It's in their blood. And when a dog guards its food, it should be trained, especially if there are young children or babies around.
Do this when your dog is still a puppy. Teach them (with professional guidance) that the food does not have to be guided, especially when children approach. The last thing you want is your dog growling at your baby or child if they accidentally touch the dog's bowl.
