Jack Russell Terrier

Jack Russell Terrier bred in the UK. Mr. Jack Russell lived in Devonshire in England, who was fond of hunting with hounds and burrows of dogs. Having become a professional in this field, Mr. Russell participated in exhibitions as an expert on terriers and was one of the first founders of the famous English Club of Dog Breeding. In the second half of the 19th century, due to the development of pastoralism, traditional horse hunting for deer and roe deer became less common in England; burrowing of foxes, hunting of wild boars and rabbits became more popular. For this, dogs of short stature and short hair were needed, which could run no worse than hounds – quickly and for a long time. Continue reading

How to protect a dog from heat stroke?

Can a dog have a heat stroke? Is it sunny? What are their differences and how do they appear? How to provide first aid? And most importantly: how to protect a dog from them? Clearly and point by point we analyze these issues in the article.
What is heat stroke?
Heat stroke is a critical condition of the body arising from overheating. Several factors can lead to it: exposure to direct sunlight, being in a stuffy room and intense physical exertion in hot and humid weather. Overheating in the sun is called sunstroke, i.e. sunstroke is a type of heatstroke.

How to wean a dog pick up on the street?

Why do dogs like to pick up all sorts of “crap”?
Dogs did not immediately become man’s best friends. At first they lived in a wild, dangerous world where instincts ruled everything. The habit of sniffing something edible and trying a find on the tooth allowed the dogs to survive. Now our researchers sleep on soft couches and eat super premium food from creative bowls, but their former instincts still live in them. That is why your pet is trying to eat all the most (from your point of view) nasty straight from the ground. For him, this is a suddenly discovered tasty treasure – which means a way to survive! And while eating “garbage” (grass, wool, feathers, etc.), the dogs provoke vomiting and cleanse the stomach through it.

Instinct is the main reason why dogs pick up litter from the ground. But there are other reasons: for example, a lack of vitamins and enzymes in the body, stress, a period of tooth changes, a banal hunger. Therefore, before starting to wean a dog from its “bad” habit, it is better to consult a veterinarian. Perhaps the reason lies in an unbalanced diet, and after adjusting the diet, the dog itself will stop picking up trash from the ground.
