The Siberian Husky Puppy

February 27, 2014

Background on The Siberian Husky Dog

The Siberian Husky is a working dog originally from the northern climates of Siberia. Huskies are a descendant of the original  sled dogs, and are capable of hard work. They are members of the Spitz family, like Pomeranians (Read more about Pomeranian), but much larger. They have triangular ears, a long tail, and a thick double coat of fur.

 

A Dog That Likes To Stay Active

Huskies are dogs with high energy, and they need to stay active. After a long history of pulling sleds across the wintery tundra, these dogs appreciate exercise. Taking on the responsibility of owning a husky means making sure you can provide it with the space to move, and time to do it.white-siberian-huskies-puppy

The ideal space for a Siberian Husky to call home is one that has a designated play area for them. This is an ideal plan to help protect your own belongs too. If possible to set aside part of a room or other wide area for your Siberian Husky to be able to play freely and get exercise. An ample backyard is also a good idea to give him space to run. Without being able to play and move about, Huskies can’t expend all their pent up energy.

Huskies will sleep for ten hours a night, and then nap for another three to four hours during the day. This is now surprise given how active they are when they are awake! It is important that your pet get its rest along with its playtime so that they are at their optimal health and well being.

 

Getting Out And About With A Siberian Husky

Huskies love to play outside, and should get plenty of time to explore their environment. They are known as the ‘digging dog’ for their love of tearing holes into the ground. If you have pretty flowers and landscaping, it is best to dog proof it or surrender it to your Siberian Husky. Taking this dog out in public is best with a leash. Their curious nature can have them running off and getting into all sorts of trouble. That is best avoided.

Breeding of Siberian Huskies

Deciding to breed your Husky is a serious decision. A vet can help you make the right choice and can give you guidance along the way if you do decide to pursue breeding. Female Siberian Huskies should not be bred before eighteen months old. It is dangerous to them and the potential pups. Siberian Huskies have a gestation period of 56-65 days.

Husky puppies will open their eyes between seven and ten days old. They will crawl to their mother to nurse by instinct. If necessary, you may need to supplement their feeding with milk alternatives. A litter of puppies is a giant undertaking, and require almost constant care from you as well as from your own dog.

Siberian Huskies are active, independent dogs that love running around and exploring the world around them. They are an excellent breed to bring into your home if you’re ready for an adventure – and think you can keep up.

Husky Pomeranian Mix – Pomsky Puppy

January 12, 2014

It’s always exciting to bring home a new family member. Choosing your dog is especially fun. One of the most popular breed these days is the Pomsky, which is a mix of a cute and fuzzy Pomeranian with a sturdy and intelligent Husky. You imagine this cute little dog that will always stay small and be playful with family members, right? You may actually realize your dream, but in some cases the dog will grow to be larger than you expected. In most cases that is not a big deal, but it might be the one thing you really don’t want. It’s important that you understand how they are bred and what you can reasonably expect from your new family friend.

Designer Dogs

Pomskies are referred to as “designer dogs” because breeders can select the parents to gain certain physical and personality traits that are desirable. Some people prefer dogs that stay small so a quality breeder may select huskies that are on the smaller side. Some people may prefer that their Pomsky to have the coloration and fur of huskies but the size of a Pomeranian, so that will be the goal of the breeder. As a potential family member of a Pomsky it is necessary that you take the time to talk to the breeder about their selection and breeding methods to assure that you get what you expect with your purchase. The best thing you can do is contact the Pomeranian club of American to learn about where quality breeders are located so that you make the best choice possible.
Husky Mix Puppy SalesYou should ask the breeder what type of dogs are used for breeding so you can have a better idea what you should expect with your puppy. If a larger husky is one of the parents, you may get a dog that weighs about 25 pounds in adulthood, with a medium build. If that is not what you are expecting, you should let the breeder know. If eye color is important ask for pictures of the parents and the offspring. If they can’t provide that for you, you may want to find a different breeder. You are making a purchase that will live with you for at least 15 years and one that will cost you in the neighborhood of $1500, so you have every right to have your expectation, especially for a designer dog.

How to make sure you buy well

Research Pomskies so you know what type of personality to expect, the dog’s temperament, their fur type, and size. These dogs vary, so if you are looking for something in particular, you can discuss these details with the breeder you decide to work with toward your purchase.
another-2-pomeranian-and-husky-mixDiscuss with your breeder what you expect regarding credentials and paperwork, which they are required to provide to you. If they give you a runaround, you should stop the process and look for another breed you feel you can trust. The paperwork should include vet check for diseases or illnesses, and shots. There should also be DNA testing included to verify the type of dogs used to breed you Pomsky. This also goes to the payment method. A breeder should accept a PayPal payment or bank transfer. If they insist on a money order or cashier’s check, you should walk away. If you are purchasing the animal from afar, you should require an interview over the phone at the very least. It is best, however, to try to make the purchase at a local breeder if at all possible. The main thing you should keep in mind is that your new friend is a lifelong investment you must protect at all cost.

Miniature Schnauzer for Sale

November 18, 2013

Everything you need to know about the miniature schnauzer breed and how to buy them.

If you’ve been looking for the absolute perfect dog to become a part of your family, the odds are fantastic that you’re going to fall in love with the miniature schnauzer. Considered to be one of the most intelligent, loyal, loving, and friendly dogs on the planet, the miniature schnauzer is definitely a fantastic addition to your home.

At the same time, the miniature schnauzer has a number of very specific differences that other dogs simply will not – and you’re going to need to make sure that you are ready to only commit to the miniature schnauzer before moving forward.

You’ll also want to make sure that you are purchasing a miniature schnauzer for sale from a reliable and reputable breeder, and that you can trace back the lineage of your new dog before you pull the trigger on a purchase.

Here is a general breakdown of the breed as a whole, as well as a number of very specific tips, tricks, and bits and pieces of information you’ll need to make this purchase – and your life with this new dog – a simple and straightforward as humanly possible.

Let’s dive right in!Miniature schnauzer

Miniature schnauzers have been around for decades and decades (hundreds of years, really), but they are not one of the “original breeds”

Schnauzers are basically believed to be a breed that is a mix of the standard schnauzer and another German dog known as the affenpinscher (with even a touch of poodle mixed into the batch somewhere down the line). This makes them rather “sophisticated” mutts, though they aren’t regarded as cross breeds any longer.

Amazingly intelligent (we’re talking off the charts intelligence here), these dogs are easy to train and even easier to work with on a daily basis. You’ll only have to correct your new miniature schnauzer one or two times to train a new behavior – five at the most – which is absolutely unheard of in the dog world. This gives you the ability to quickly and nearly instantly train your new pup the moment that you bring it home, tightly integrating it into your family and daily routine.

Speaking of family, the miniature schnauzer is also one of the most fiercely loyal and loving animals you’re going to find on the planet. They make picture-perfect companions and usually create rocksolid bonds with everyone in the family (though they also have a tendency to fall in love with one person in the family more than the rest). This makes them some of the best dogs to have around small children, as they are intelligent enough to know not to miss behave with the little ones but loving and loyal enough to stick by their side as they grow up.

As far as temperament is concerned, the miniature schnauzer has more than enough energy for everyone around – but they don’t act like the Energizer Bunny with the bouncing off the walls like other breeds can.

They’ll need to be exercised on a daily basis, but most of that simply involves throwing the ball around or allowing them to drawn in wide open spaces for a few hours each day. You’re certainly not going to find these dogs to be difficult to keep up with, and they don’t get as bored as other working dogs do or other intelligent dogs can.

Always – ALWAYS – purchase your miniature schnauzer for sale from a reliable and reputable breeder

Though you can certainly pursue opportunities to rescue a miniature schnauzer from an animal shelter in your local area (and in fact, that’s encouraged), the last thing that you’re going to want to do is purchase a miniature schnauzer for sale
female Miniature schnauzer for salefrom a breeder that you don’t trust.

There are a tremendous amount of “puppy mills” out there in the world today, and you don’t want to contribute to this messy and inhumane practice. Instead focus on miniature schnauzer breeders that have proven to deliver top-quality dogs every single time, breeders that focus on the life of their dogs as opposed to squeezing every little drop of profit out of them in the process.

You’ll also want to communicate regularly with your breeder, asking any and all questions you have to make sure that you get the kinds of answers you’re searching for. The odds are fantastic that you’re going to be spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars on your miniature schnauzer (and potentially even thousands of dollars), so you need to be 100% comfortable with the purchase.

You can find miniature schnauzer for sale advertisements online all over the place, but focus on forums that have dedicated communities so you’ll be able to get a bit of feedback about the breeder before you begin to move forward. This is going to save you an amazing amount of headache and hassle in the long run, and is something that you need to take care of ASAP.

Cockapoo Breed

November 17, 2013

 

Everything you need to know about the Cockapoo breed and purchasing them

While not “formally” recognized by most of the leading licensing boards and organizations in the dog world, Cockapoos (a mixture between a cocker spaniel and a poodle) have been an amazingly popular breed of dogs ever since the early 1950s.

There are literally hundreds and hundreds of breeders out there right now working to push the Cockapoo breed just a little bit further into the future than it was when they first got started, producing absolutely fantastic looking animals that are also amazingly healthy. Think of the Cockapoo as the very best of both worlds when it comes to cocker spaniels and poodles – with a unique look, attitude, and personality that you simply won’t find anywhere else.

That being said, you definitely need to make sure that you understand the Cockapoo breed before you become a Cockapoo owner – and you’ll also want to focus on a number of very important things when looking to purchase a new dog. Some of these things seem rather simple and straightforward (and not a little bit obvious), but there are probably a handful of things in the information below that you simply were unaware of.

Here is the “inside information” you’ve been looking for in regards to the Cockapoo breed, hopefully giving you the answers that you’ve been searching for while at the same time all but guaranteeing you end up with the very best Cockapoo on the planet.

As a mixed breed, Cockapoos are amazingly intelligent and also take the best qualities from each sideCockapoo

It’s been long understood that mixed breed dogs are far smarter and in purebred dogs, if only because different DNA is introduced into the bloodstream and bloodline and would have been introduced otherwise. There’s only so much interbreeding that you can do before you start to deplete the gene pool in dogs, and that’s why “mutts and mongrels” are regarded as so much more intelligent than in purebred animals.

On top of that, Cockapoo dogs take the best of both worlds when it comes to pulling from their cocker spaniel and poodle ancestors. Cockapoos are rather strong (but a bit on the small side), and enjoy a fantastically friendly and loyal personality – specific traits as a “deal” or borrow from their cocker spaniel ancestors.

From the poodle side, Cockapoo dogs get amazingly elevated intelligence, a coat that doesn’t shed, and an anti-allergy far that won’t upset people who cannot be around “traditional” dogs. If that’s not the best of both worlds, then I just don’t know what is.

At the same time, Cockapoo’s don’t have to deal with all of the different health challenges that cocker spaniels and poodles have to every single day. They’ve almost been able to enjoy a built up an enhanced immune system and an elimination of the other genetic diseases that are traditional with each of the two “parent” breeds – allowing you to stay out of the vet far more often than you might have been able to otherwise.

Cockapoo dogs also enjoy a tremendously long life

Compared with other dogs that at most live to be around 10 or 12 years of age, a Cockapoo can expect to live anywhere between 18 and 22 years – with some Cockapoo dogs living to be 25 or older with no real hassle whatsoever. They are smaller dogs (with sturdy little frames), but they are amazingly energetic and are able to keep their youthful glow for years and years whereas other breeds lose that lust for life somewhere around eight or 10 years of age.Cockapoo puppies for sale

As a mixed breed, there is no specific “Cockapoo standard” – at least not one that is recognized by any official organization. Breeders have specific designations that they attach to the Cockapoo dogs they raise, with three distinct and different “classes” that you may or may not be interest.

You have the teacup toy Cockapoo dogs that are supposed to be shorter than 10 inches tall and weigh less than 6 pounds. You also have the toy Cockapoo dogs that are anywhere between 11 and 14 inches tall (but always weighing less than 12 pounds), and then you have the standard Cockapoo dogs – 15 inches or taller and weighing over 12 pounds.

Cockapoo for Sale

Different “types” of Cockapoo dogs are going to be better for different personalities or lifestyles, so make sure that you’re purchasing the right dog moving forward.

You also want to make sure that you are always purchasing a Cockapoo from a reliable and reputable breeder that you can trust, someone who has already established a track record in the industry and a person that has been breeding Cockapoo dogs for years and years. This is nonnegotiable, as you don’t want to contribute to the epidemic of “puppy mills” that are cropping up all around the globe.

10 Things you may not Know About Pomeranians

November 11, 2013

A Introduction of Pomeranian

When you are looking for a introduction of Pomeranian dogs then you may find some good information on them at your local bookstore, pet shop or library.  You can find books on their size, background, what to feed them, etc.  You may even find books that will give you a introduction to Pomeranian breeds in the form of an e-book.  You may also be able to get good information on the breed from your local vet.

Right now you will read about some interesting and little known facts about the breed.

Pomeranian Breed and origins

The Pomeranian is actually a part of the Spitz family.  They originated in the Pomerania area that lies in the heart of Europe.  You will not find this region on current maps though because now it is a part of both Germany and Poland.  The breed was named for the region from which it originated.

Although the breed is classified as a breed known as toy dogs because of its size, if you know anything at all about dogs then you will know that the Spitz dogs that the Pomeranian descends from is a much larger breed.  While they are known here as Pomeranians, in a lot of countries they are called Dwarf Spitz.

So how did they get so small if they are descended from a larger breed?  Keep reading and you will find out shortly.

PopularityPomeranian

When Queen Victoria reigned in England in the 17th century she had a small red dog.  Yes, it was a Pomeranian.  She gained the love of this breed as a child because her grandmother, Queen Catherine had this type of dog.  Queen Catherine’s dog was larger though and weighed in at about 50 pounds.  When it became widely known what the breed of Queen Victoria’s dog was it created a fad.  People wanted to have the same type of dog that the Queen had.  That sparked the popularity of the breed and it has been going strong ever since.  Although the breed was larger back then, the Queen’s dog was a small one for the times.  She was a great fan of dogs in general and helped to finance kennels for breeding the dogs.  When dog aficionados and breeders found that out, they started breeding only small versions of the animal.  The Queen helped them in this endeavor by importing the smallest she could find from different countries.  During her reign alone and directly due to both her influence and preferences, the size of a Pomeranian shrunk by more than 50%.

Things to watch for

Although this breed of dog is small it is a rather hearty breed.  The most common natural afflictions to watch out for in this breed are tracheal collapse, luxating patella and black skin disease.  Other than that if you give the dog his shots and make sure he gets everything that he needs he should be pretty healthy as a whole.  Their life expectancy is about 16 years.

Tracheal collapse occurs when the dog’s trachea collapse.  If you notice the critter having trouble breathing or actually passing out this may be the reason and the dog should receive medical treatment.

Luxating patella is basically when the dog’s knee cap slips out of place.  The dog will not be able to sit comfortably and the leg will be in a position where it is bent with the paw off the ground.  Painful when it occurs, the condition is not painful immediately after the kneecap slips.

Black skin disease is when the skin turns black and the hair falls out.

AppearancePomeranian puppies

The Pomeranian is a small breed.  At the maximum growth they only reach a height of 11’’ and their weight generally gets to be between 7 and 8 pounds.    Their coat is generally fluffy and their tails are set both high as well as flat.  While earlier versions of this breed were primarily pure white or sometimes black, now they are the breed that has the largest array of colors out of every breed in the world.

Grooming

It is recommended that this breed is brushed out every single day.   That is because the dog actually has 2 coats.  The part that you primarily see on first look is the outer coat and is straight, long and not very soft.  There is also an undercoat though.  This undercoat tends to be short, very dense and soft.  Because the dog constantly sheds, if they are not brushed out on a daily basis they can become matted and tangled and this could actually lead to health conditions.

Attitude

For a little dog the Pomeranian can have a big attitude.  They are extremely temperamental because the owners tend to spoil them.  In order to teach good behavior early Pomeranian puppies should be trained at as early an age as possible.  Without early training the Pomeranian puppies will grow up to be little barkers.  They have a tendency to bark as the slightest provocation unless trained early not to.

A Random Interesting Fact or Four

When the Titanic sank there were only 3 dogs saved.  One of them was a Pekinese and the other two were both Pomeranians; which raises the question of why they were saving dogs while people were drowning?

In 1898 the first of the Pomeranian breed became registered at the American Kennel Club although it was not even recognized by the club as a breed for two more years.

Speaking of clubs, the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show awarded the breed a prize for the first time in 1926. This prize was in the Toy Group category.   A pom would not win another prize there until 62 years later when one was awarded the prize for Best in Show.

For each of the last 10 years, the breed has been on the top 10 list for the most popular breed in America according to the American Kennel Club.  The breed is extremely more popular in America than anywhere else on the world at the time of this writing.

Housetraining

Consider Your LifestylePug puppies for sale

You should take your lifestyle into consideration as you begin to housetrain your puppy.  Different lifestyles require different types of training tactics.  For some people a method that is schedule based will work well if you have someone who is home the majority of the time.  This method will most likely not work very well for those who work busy schedules.  It is important to choose training methods that fit within your lifestyle.

The Physiology of the Pug

All dogs have different physiologies.  It is important to make sure you take the time necessary to understand the way they operate.  Particularly, it is important to understand that this breed has a urinary bladder that is very small and they will need to urinate in shorter intervals than other breeds.  They have a digestive system that is similar to humans.  They have to relieve their bowels very often.  It is important to understand this physiology so that you can avoid any possible conflicts that could arise.

Consistency is the Key

You have to be patient and consistent when you are training your new puppy to be sure you reach the desired results.  It is important for the first few days of training that you be prepared for any “accidents” that could be deposited in your living areas, especially near your shoes.  You should also be prepared to step in some wet spots as well.  The key here is not to overreact.  Until your puppy learns from their training, these may be common occurrences.

Teacup Chihuahua Info, Health, History, Pictures and For Sale

November 8, 2013

Have you decided that it’s time you purchased a good pet for you and your family? You may be considering what type of animal to get – A cat? A dog? Something small and fuzzy? It all depends on your needs. Apartment living is a common situation in which a family – or an individual – doesn’t have a lot of room to own an animal. But should you give up on your dreams of being a pet owner simply because you rent an apartment?

Introducing the Teacup Chihuahua

The Teacup Chihuahua first gained popularity in the 1990s. It is not an accepted term for the breed as a whole, and probably gained popularity when an owner referred to their smaller-than-average pup as a teacup Chihuahua. A “teacup” Chihuahua is the same as a toy or micro Chihuahua, and the owner is best informed when they are aware that these are all the same kind of dog.

But before you jump on the bandwagon and leap at the chance to purchase a teacup Chihuahua for sale, you should know that their tiny bodies are more susceptible to diseases such as hypoglycemia, heart disease, joint problems, and bone fractures. By purchasing a puppy at a pet store, you may find that they have more health problems than they would if you purchased them at a traditional breeder.

This isn’t to say you shouldn’t purchase a Teacup Chihuahua though. The choice of purchasing a pet is a very personal one. They take a lot of time and energy to keep healthy – maybe more so than other pets – so be certain you’re willing to accommodate their many physical needs.  Additionally, you’ll have to bring them to the vet regularly to ensure that they haven’t suffered from fractures or muscle strains.

Teacup Chihuahuas can be hurt far too easily. Sleeping with them in your bed can be a risk – if you roll over on them, it can fracture bones. If you handle them too roughly, you can pull muscles, tear tendons, or even cause a bone fracture. Their small size makes it absolutely necessary to handle them with extreme care. Chihuahuas in general are small – but teacups are even smaller, and therefore need extra-special care.

An Expansive History

The Teacup Chihuahua is, like his normal-sized peers, a descendant of the small, affectionate dogs of Chihuahua, Mexico. In the mid-to-late 1800s, they were spotted by Americans traveling to the region – and the rest is, quite literally, history. Nowadays, the modern Chihuahua is recognized as an AKC (American Kennel Club) official breed, and the first Chihuahua was registered in 1904. The breed’s popularity has soared in the last century, and the miniature breed has been owned by celebrities and exotic breeders alike.

Before they were found in Mexico, The teacup Chihuahua is thought to have possibly originated in the Island of Malta in the Mediterranean. There are a number of scientific reasons that the dog is thought to be related to the ancient breeds on Malta, including skeletal similarities. They’ve also appeared in ancient art. The breed is diverse and has a rich history – if you find a Teacup Chihuahua for sale, you can think it as owning a piece of living history!

Grooming a Teacup Chihuahua

One of the most important aspects of owning a teacup Chihuahua – whether teacup or normal-sized – is bathing it. Smooth-coats and long-coats both require grooming, although long-coats require a significant amount more. The small dogs can get dirty easily and the long-coats get tangles that are difficult to remove when left ungroomed for a long period of time. Unfortunately, as an owner, it’s easy to let the grooming go unattended for long periods of time. Whether you’re too busy to keep up or you’re simply forgetful, it can be a nuisance to groom the teacup Chihuahua.

However, this is not to say that the breed needs bathing on a weekly basis. If you bathe a teacup Chihuahua too often, his coat may get dry and stripped of healthy oils. A good rule of thumb is to bathe him or her once every two or three weeks, or once a month if that’s easiest.

Keeping a Teacup Chihuahua Happy and Warmchihuahua

Teacup Chihuahuas are small. Most weigh only 2-5 pounds. They probably shiver simply because they’re tiny! As with most small creatures, Chihuahuas are more susceptible to the effects of chilly winter weather. Similar to humans, the tiny dogs shiver when they’re cold so that they can warm up their bodies. After all, they wouldn’t want to fall victim to hypothermia! But to keep your Teacup happy, you’ll want to keep him warm before anything else. And you may assume that he’s never warm – he shakes all the time. Why else would he do that?

They may shake because they’re anxious as well. If your teacup Chihuahua is constantly shivering, he or she may not actually be cold, but actually anxious. Because your cute little teacup doesn’t know how to tell you when he’s cold, anxious, hungry, or excited, you must be astute and observe his behaviors. If he wants to go outside, he’s probably excited and shaking with anticipation. If he shakes after he comes inside, he’s probably cold. Keep an eye on your teacup to see what his behaviors tell you about his personality. You’ll learn a lot simply from spending time with your puppy.
