Poodle

Presumably, the ancestors of the poodle were introduced by Arabs from North Africa to Spain and Portugal, where they began to interbreed with a Portuguese water dog and cattle dogs. Over time, the poodle got to other European countries. It was large, originally used in the hunt and pulled game from the water. In France, during the time of Louis – in the 17-18th century. – the poodle became a “royal” dog – the main favorite of courtiers. At this time, the selection of this breed was aimed at obtaining small dogs. However, the poodle was not only decorative, but also for official purposes.
The poodle received great popularity in Europe in the 19–20th century. Representatives of this breed were depicted on canvases of paintings, and even emblems, became heroes of literary and musical works. Continue reading

In England, this breed was considered a shepherd, so the tail of the Bobtail was stopped: the tax for the shepherd’s dog was determined by the length of its tail. Continue reading

Dog teeth care

How to care for a dog’s teeth? And whether it is necessary to look after them in general? These questions arise for each responsible pet owner. In the natural habitat, wolves, jackals and coyotes – wild relatives of dogs – do well without dental toys, treats, special toothbrushes and pastes. And what about pets?

Unlike wolves, coyotes and jackals, domestic dogs do not have to participate in natural selection and fight for survival. There are not only pros, but also cons. A striking example is the health of the dentition.

In nature, the jaws of the wolf will always find application. The beast hunts, butches prey and eats not only meat, but also tendons, cartilage, bones. Hunting trains the muscles of the jaw, and hard food naturally cleans plaque from fangs. With a weak dentition, the wolf would not have survived! Continue reading
