Dog pees with joy and excitementMany dog ​​owners know this. The dog is greeted and he leaves a small puddle of joy and excitement. Otherwise he is housebroken. In conversations with masters and mistresses, I often hear the concern that the dog is definitely incontinent, even if it is still a puppy. But I can usually calm them down quickly. Because when dogs pee with joy and excitement, it usually has nothing to do with incontinence. But what it has to do with and what you can do about it, you will find out in the following article.

Dog PawsIn summer, high temperatures can not only be uncomfortable for us humans. Animals also suffer from the heat and, like us humans, can get heat stroke. What is not so well known to many, especially hot asphalt is very dangerous for sensitive dog paws. Especially in the midday heat, the sun can heat up the asphalt enormously, so that a multiple of the air temperature is reached. At an air temperature of 25 degrees, the asphalt temperature reaches 45-62 degrees, at 30 degrees 50-60, at 35 degrees 55-68 degrees. Different floor coverings reach different temperatures. A study by Frostburg University shows that when concrete is 40°C, brick is about 43°C and asphalt is about 51°C when the outside temperature is 25 degrees.

senior-dogThere is a saying: “Everyone wants to grow old, nobody wants to get older!” This applies not only to us humans, but also to dogs. First of all, the question arises when is mine Dog actually old, was it just a puppy? Unfortunately, there is no clear statement on this. But there is an old rule: the bigger the dog, the sooner it becomes a senior. For example: giant breeds such as the Irish Wolfhound or the German Great Danes have a life expectancy of 8 to 10 years and are already considered senior dogs at the age of 6 to 7. Medium-sized dogs from the age of 8, small dogs only at the age of 10. (more…)

Dog Barfen Many dog ​​owners wonder what else they can do for their dog. When researching, they often come across the BARF feed concept, but unfortunately it mostly stays that way. It’s far too complex, too expensive and I feed it a super premium feed. So people continue to trust the industrial feed manufacturer, because the dog’s droppings are ok and otherwise it seems to taste good to him. Especially since the whole presentation of the food is great, so why should I change the food? At the latest after the first intolerance, or illness of the gastrointestinal tract, tartar and bad breath, many dog ​​owners ask themselves whether it might not have something to do with the food. In the best case, the question is asked beforehand and our feed check is used.

DogWhat were those times when at Granny or on the farm gave what was left of the food for the dogs. Whether that was good for the dogs is another matter, but compared to many industrially produced dog foods today, it was definitely better. What? Eating off the table was better than many of today’s dog foods? Yes, you’ve read that correctly! Unfortunately, over 90% of all feed is industrial feed, filled with cheap fillers, flavor enhancers, slaughterhouse waste, sugar, artificial preservatives and additives. Well, grandma at least knew exactly what was in the cooking pot and also in the dog bowl. Do you know exactly what’s in dog food? Do you understand the declarations on the label 100%? Do you even know what an industrial feed is? (more…)
