One day they might suddenly burst out and be so unlike the dog we often cuddle. Despite that, we should always treat them well. Communicating with them effectively is the key to prevent unnecessary behaviors in the future.

Dog whisper is a method use in communicating with your dog with the purpose of controlling his behavior. In this method the dog pet owner shows to his dog that he is the leader and that as a pet owner it is your desire that your dog obey you. Through dog whisper, the pet owner understands his dog; what makes him respond or follow you as their owner. The dog communicates to his pet owner through his body language, thus you will know if the action pleases the dogs or agitates him more.

Being able to effectively communicate with your dog while they are still young can help make any type of training easier and much more effective. If you trained well your dog, just by the way you look at them, by the tone of your voice and the way you stand they will know that you mean business and that you are his owner and that your pet should obey you. All of these can be taught to your dog without even touching them or worst hurt them.

There are different methods used in controlling the dogs; some goes for the harsh way of yelling to the dogs, pulling their collars or using electric choke while other choose the reward system as the best way in making dogs obey. No matter what the situation is; the dog is aggregated or made a mess due to their playfulness dogs should be treated with respect, after all they are just like us – creation as well.

Under The Sea »

The land may be a big home for humans but the ocean is the largest home for all living things. If human and other animals can just live on ocean, we all can still fit there. Covering three quarters of the earth’s surface, ocean is indeed very large containing strange and charming creatures. From the largest creature on earth – blue whale to the smallest plankton; they all live in the ocean. Animals who live here have unique features and characteristics.  Some are long while others are short, some colorful while others are just plain, others remain all day in their position while some never stops swimming all day and night. I’m sure; watching them even for quite awhile will be such a great experience.

There are three groups of ocean animals: zooplankton, nekton and benthos. Zooplankton is ocean animals that cannot push themselves, depending on the wind or currency movements. They just drift in the ocean, can be small but can also grow in a large size. One of zooplankton ocean animal is the jellyfish. The second group is nekton, this group has the biggest portion of animals, and examples of this are whales, codfish, trout and many more sea mammals. The last group is benthos; these are the ocean animals that spend their whole life in the ocean bottom; lobsters, starfish, worms, snails, oysters and the likes.

Though there are many ocean animals they are actually declining due to pollution and improper fishing. There are still many areas and maybe species that are not yet discovered when it comes to ocean animals. Protecting them is vital not just for them to survive but for us humans too.

When Dog’s Pancreas Malfunction »

Since the dogs don’t speak it’s really hard to tell what they are feeling. But one will really know if their pet dog is sick though it is hard to tell what kind of sickness they have unless brought to a vet. Pancreatitis is one of the dog sickness pet owners have to watch for. Pancreatitis in dogs is the malfunctioning of their pancreas when it becomes swollen. During this condition, the pancreas does not produce insulin and pancreatic enzymes which digest nutrients and absorbed fats.

 Middle-aged dogs are most at risk with this sickness especially those Yorkshire Terries and Schnauzers. There is no specific cause of pancreatitis but many claimed that it is from too much eating of fatty foods.  During Christmas, many dogs are diagnosed having pancreatitis, dog pets eat fatty foods through “stealing” them or theyare fed by these “human foods”. Common symptoms of pancreatitis in dogs are abdominal pain, lack of appetite, depression, dehydration, vomiting, diarrhea, fever and yellow and greasy stool.

If pet owners recognized these signs in their pets, they must stop giving their dog fatty foods and a must is bring their pet to the vet. Pancreatitis can still be cure as long as identified early. Pancreatitis if not treated earlier may trigger other disease. To avoid pancreatitis in your pet, don’t give your pet dog-fatty food; watch your pet’s diet and obesity. Pancreatitis can be life threatening and early detection of it can save the life of your pet and greater expenses in the future

Dog Fight, It’s For Losers »

Dogs have different breeds, which enable them to serve for various kinds of work. Dogs can be a therapy dog, hunting dog, companion dog, guide dog but they are not and will never be fighting dogs. Yes, dogs of any breeds can get into fights but they can be just a playful squabbling. This is a sad reality in the life of dogs. While there are some dogs who are love, given comforts, wear designer’s dog clothes, have regular grooming and all those dog comforts there are actually dogs who spend their lives in the brutality and cruelty of their gambler pet owner.

  Watch videos of dogfights and see their dreadful conditions. I have seen one, just a short video, but was not able to finish it, just couldn’t take every thing.  Their face is full of blood and wounds they could hardly be recognized. Their legs are broken, they could hardly move, wounds are everywhere in their body, they look very miserable and yes, sadness is seen in their eyes. Worst, their life might end in just one dog fight and their pet owner will never even care to give them memorial. I can’t just imagine how such people can do that to the pet we consider our best friend, our best companion and our children’s playmates. Relationship built with pet dogs will always be priceless; they do not deserve a life of cruelty but a life full of love enough to remember their pet owner in their next life.

Protect Your Crops From Hungry Birds »

Birds can be troublesome and the biggest problem especially if you have crops like grapes, cherries and the likes. They like these fruits for foods because of its sweet taste. Your vineyard can actually lost all its fruits before they are even ripe. Fighting them is tiring especially if your methods never work at all. It is not that we don’t want to share them some; we just hope they won’t eat all.

There have been many suggested solutions to answer this bird problem. One of them is using visual and noise-scaring devices, which can make the birds keep out of the crops in the vineyard. The sound they hear makes them scare which is why they keep away from the crop. But this solution oftentimes does not last long because birds can get use to the sound, which lessens its affectivity.

The best solution to this bird problem is vineyard bird netting. Bird netting can be costly but is nothing compared to the cost you will be losing if you continue to allow birds eat your crops. Bird netting should be plan ahead to have nice result; don’t place it after the birds have eaten all your crops. Choose a bird net that is made of good quality material, such as the galvanized bird – netting because it last longer and does not sag. You have to install it properly above the crop to ensure that crops are well protected from hungry birds.
