SHOULD I GET A DOG?

Considerations you should do before you buy a dog
Purchase of dog should be planned carefully if both you and the dog are to be satisfied with cohabitation. In the following you will find some good advice about the considerations you should make before you get a dog.

The joys of living with mans best friend – the dog – are many. It has been scientifically proven that if you have a dog (and love it) it can decreases your blood pressure and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Dog owners them selves also mention the following benefits by sharing their home with a dog: increased well being due to fresh air and exercise and more contact with the outside world (you can not avoid getting into conversation with people when you walk out with a dog). Less loneliness and a brighter mind (it is very difficult to walk around and be sad when you have a happy dog on your heels) and finally mention of course is that the dog is a faithful friend, the whole family can love.

That was a little bit about the joys we humans can expect from have a dog, but for the relationship to be mutually happy, it is very important that you make sure you full understand what having a dog involves. You need to think about what you can offer a dog and you need to make sure you get a breed that has a temperament which will fit in with you’re your family and your lifestyle. It is a huge responsibility to have a dog and you must remember that, with a bit of luck, you dog will live for 10 – 15 years.

Fare too many dogs must each year pay the price for peoples impulse actions and poor decision The lucky dogs get re-homed or end up in dog homes, the unlucky stay in the home living a miserable life or shamefully loose their lives.  Therefore PLEASE ask your self before getting a dog – can I offer a dog a GOOD - FOREVER home?

In the following we have tried to provide information that can help you towards making the right decision Please read BEFORE you buy!

Know your limitations:
As humans we are generally very optimistic when we assessing our own abilities. Just think of the plans for savings, slimming cures, exercise plan, etc. When you evaluate your ability to keep a dog, it is a good idea to take 20% off. If you are a first-time dog buyer then do not buy a breed that is too exotic or demanding. Before you buy a dog should you make the following considerations:

Do you have time?
All dogs, regardless of race, are pack animals and need to be together with you to thrive. A dog should not be alone more than 5-6 hours daily. The dog must besides daily exercise be activated and trained to become mentally tired and satisfied. Finally, you should expect to spend time brushing and groom your dog (varies from race to race). All in all, you could put aside at least 1 ½ hours a day actively spending time with your dog – this is besides all the time you otherwise have with your dog.

Fit a dog into your life?
A dog thrives best with a fairly regular life. Long hours, many movements, changing working hours, travel, childcare, etc. can make the dog anxious and stressed.

What about physics?
Even the smallest dog needs to some degree be exercise, trained and have experience, and that puts demand on your physics. Large dogs generally require more training as they can be difficult to handle. But all dogs have the right to have experience and would like to go out for walks (even if you have a large garden).

Can you afford?
It costs to have the dog - and this refers not to the puppy's price. The cost of buying the dog is in fact surprisingly small when you consider what it costs to keep the dog for 10-15 years. You should expect to pay for food, dog equipment, vaccinations, flea and wormers, regular and unexpected vet visits, training, grooming, holiday care, insurance and most likely a dog walker (if you are working).

So if you think that the cost of a pedigree puppy at between £350 - £800 (depending on breed) sounds discouraging, consider whether you even afford to keep the dog. And definitely don’t make the cost the reason that you choose a dog from a re-homing center - as much as this is a wonderful thing to do it should be for the right reasons NOT financial reasons!

Diet alone is estimated to amount to:
A small dog eats annually for at least £80, a medium sized dog about £180 and a big dog eats for about £340 per annum.

How do you live?
The dog's size should also to some extent depend on how you live. If you live in an apartment and have to negotiate a lot of stairs every day, it is inappropriate to choose a very large and heavy breed, as it is physically demanding for the dog to walk the many steps before it is physically developed. - And it is also stressful for you having to carry the dog!

If you do not have a car and travel by bike, by train or bus, it may be advantageous to buy a smaller breed that may even sit in a bag and be carried in public transport in cities.

What fur?
Remember that some breeds have special requirements for grooming - both financially and time wise. Breeds with long hair should be brushed daily, others will be trimmed or cut regularly, and others simply brushed or rubbed with a rubber glove a couple times a week. Ask for more information from a breeder or breed specialty club.


WHAT TYPE OF DOG SHOULD I GET?

Do your research:
It is a good idea to take on a dog show before you buy dog. Here you have the opportunity to see a variety of breeds, both males, females, young dogs and puppies. You have the option to also ask questions of owners and breeders on everything from grooming and exercise to health and temperament.

Are you a first-time dog buyer, read books about dog behavior and training, etc. Start at the library, maybe friends can help or there is of cause your vets, pet shops and don't forget the net.

Should I choose a pedigree dog and if so what breed:
All dogs are beautiful creatures whether it's pedigree or a cross bred dog!
Globally there are around 400 pedigree breeds. The dogs are not just different in appearance they are also very different in temperament.

Dogs are bred to do different jobs and though most dogs now a days are kept purely as companions the dogs still have a need to use their natural characteristics it is therefore important to choose a breed who’s natural needs and requirements fits in with your lifestyle.

Choosing a cross breed dog is of cause also an option though it is much more of a lottery as predicting how a cross breed will evolve in size and temperament is very hard. Certainly if you are a first time dog owner and are looking to get a puppy (rather than adult dog) choosing a pedigree is a safer option. The purchase price is usually considerably lower for a cross breed, but the acquisition price is small compared to the lifetime cost of having a dog and the cost of the puppy should never help you decide which dog is best for you and more importantly – which dog you are best suited for.

There are however a sickening amount of unwanted and miss-treated dogs in animal shelters all looking for loving homes, many are cross breed but there are also pedigree dogs. So please do consider if you feed you could give a home to an un-wanted dog. Weather a pedigree or a cross breed dog any good rescue centre will be able to help match the right dog to you.

Female or male:
Bitches and dogs can achieve can achieve practically the same results in the training. The immediate difference is that the bitch comes into season around. 2 times a year (for approx. Three weeks), in comparison with the male who is in the "season" throughout the year! Females may be somewhat unstable in this period, reflected especially during training. A male dog marks throughout its lifetime its territory around the house and anywhere else it goes. Male animals can also be much affected (un-concentrated, decreased appetite) when surrounding females are in heat.

Puppy or adult:
If you start with a puppy ( puppy should not leave the bitch until 8 weeks old), you have the advantage that you can shape, socialize and train your puppy from it is small.

In contrast if choosing a youngster or an adult dog, you must ensure that the dog has had sufficient contact with humans, as well has having had positive experiences in different environments. You could ask if you could go for a walk in town with the dog.

Whichever option you choose you should expect to take holiday and spend time introducing your new dog to his environment.


WHERE TO BUY MY DOG / PUPPY FROM?

Where can I buy the puppy/dog:
The supply of dogs for sale is large and sadly not all breeders take equally good care of neither their breeding dogs nor their puppies but the easiest way to insure you buy your puppy comes from a reputable breeder is to contact the Kennel Club or look on the KC website http://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/.

There are 3 main sources of buying a puppy:

Breeders
There are small home breeders only producing 1-2 litters a year and then your larger scale breeders with several dogs and bitches. Either form can be as good as the other (providing of cause they are reputable and responsible breeders) but it is important to always insure that the puppies lots of human contact and lots of different experiences (exposed to cars, other animals, children etc) You should also always be able to see the bitch and ideally (but not necessarily) the dog. Good breeders will also provide you with a great deal of information and be available for follow up questions, have a look here for information on what to expect from a good breeder: http://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/item/2101

Shelters
You can also choose to buy a puppy, junior or adult dog from a sanctuary. There can be many different reasons why the dog ended up at a rescue home. Be sure to get maximum information from staff about the dog you are interested in especially if you are a first time dog owner. Any good rescue home should be willing and able to provide both home visits and help choosing the best dog for you. http://www.dogstrust.org.uk - http://www.rspca.org.uk/home - http://www.dogpages.org.uk/adopting.htm#adopt

Pet Shops
As a general rule avoid getting your dog from a pet shop! It is general knowledge that puppies are very susceptible in their early stages the experiences they have - both good and bad - will affect them the rest of their lives. Puppies need to feed safe and secure and have good experiences and not stresses too much. This is achieved by that puppy living alongside his siblings and the bitch in a god environment till at least 8 -10 weeks of age.

Being taken away from siblings and bitch, transported sometimes for days and across boarders to then stand in a box in a shop is anything but relaxing and this on top of the fact that the conditions they have been bred in are likely to be less than suitable does not provide the best start in life…

As a rule of thump the very least you should ask for when buying a puppy is to see the bitch…

Choosing which breeder to buy your puppy from
It is a good idea to visit a few different breeders before deciding on who you want to buy the puppy from. Puppies are irresistible, but keep a cool head. By visiting several breeders you will have a basis for comparison of which is preferable.

Let the kids stay home on the first visit. They can too easily persuaded parents to do something rash. "We were really just looking ..." Remember that the dog you decide to buy, will be in your family for many years to come so you want to make sure you make the right decision.

See the puppies in their familiar surroundings
You should always see the puppies in their familiar surroundings. Do be content with seeing a single puppy in a "presentation room". Insist on seeing the puppies also where they usually are. Where the puppies are it should be clean, but it should also bear the stamp of the pups they should have things to do - lots of toys and exciting things to explore and play with.

Puppies from 6 weeks of age to be happy, outgoing and willingly seek contact with the visitors. They must be healthy and be robust, well fed and well cared for (Unless - of course - they've just been playing tag in the rain!).

Never buy a puppy out of pity. If the conditions are bad, if it seems the dogs are sick or neglected, then do the right thing for the dogs - contact an animal welfare organisation and the police! If you buy a dog from such a person, it "rewards" and supports their bad behavior. Only buy a dog from a place you like.

See parent dog(s)
Always insist to meet the puppies' mother. If the puppies are more than approx. 4 weeks, the bitch should accept your presence and be sociable. Females may - understandably - look a little "worn", but most breeders will be happy to show you a picture of her in better shape.

Pay attention to the female's behavior. It is important that you like her nature. Not only will she pass on half of its genes to the puppies, she is also involved in influencing the pups during all that time she has with them.

If it is possible to see the male, it is also a good idea. It is not always possible, but if the male live within driving distance, it is worth the trip.

Clear agreements
When you buy a dog, it is important to enter into clear agreements. Some breeders suggest that you make specific agreements on health, mating, tests or exhibits. Consider for instance if you want part of the purchase price refunded instead of a replacement puppy, if it turns out that the dog has hip dysphasia. If in doubt, ask lots of questions to the seller and ask your veterinarian or the Kennel Club before signing.


BEFORE BRINGING YOUR DOG HOME

Preparations to make before the puppy's arrival
It is our experience that once the puppy is in the house you get plenty to do. There are therefore some practical things you should put in order before bringing the puppy home.

Equipment for the dog

  • A good lead - either fabric or leather.
  • Possibly also a flex line for use in the woods or anywhere else the dog must not be loose but can have space for a bit or “free” run
  • A flat collar (no choke collars for puppies), or possibly a harness for a small breed.
  • Dog tags with the following statutory information: Owner name, address and telephone number. Possibly also dog tag to the holiday cottage or holiday carer.
  • Food and water dishes to the house and a water bowl for the car.
  • Toys and chews etc.
  • Dog Bed – possibly start with a smaller bed as the puppy likes to “snuggle” up
Equipment for home and car
  • If you have a car, you should either buy a dog seat belt, or install a dog fence, so that both dog and other passengers can sit safely in the car. A "loose" dog in the car is deadly in the event of a collision.
  • If you have stairs or rooms the dog is not allowed in, it is advantageous to acquire a child gate. A child gate can also be used for “alone alone” training.
  • Extra fence or gate for the garden so the dog is kept safely inside.
  • Hide wires (puppy loves to chew wires) and remove vulnerable potted plants and hazardous chemicals.
  • Find a good veterinarian in your area (and ideally book in a visit for the day you pick up the puppy to give him a full check-over – if there are problems the sooner you find out the less heart breaking it will be to take him back)
  • Have your dog insured right away
  • Borrow or buy some good dog books (and remember to read them ;-)

DOGS FIRST DAYS WITH ME

The first days and nights
It's a big change for the pup to move to a new home, but you can help your puppy to quickly become comfortable with you. The puppy will soon relax in his new home if you keep him in your immediate vicinity, the first couple of days and nights. Remember that your puppy comes from comfortable, familiar surroundings, where it has been joined by both his mother and his siblings, and now it is suddenly alone in a strange place. Therefore let the puppy sleep beside the bed or lie on a mattress next to the area that you later want the puppy to sleep in.

When the puppy after a time fell comfortable and relaxed, you can gradually move the dog bed out of the bedroom and into the hall, or to where you want the puppy to sleep. This method works every time and done right, it is not stressful for either you or your puppy.
Myth: It is an old myth that the only way your puppy will learn to sleep alone is to let him whiiining him self to sleep behind a closed door. The method can not be recommended because it is stressful for both puppy and owner.

Alone at home training
When the puppy, after some days, is settling into his new surroundings, it is time to start home alone exercises. The dog is a pack animal, and therefore it is unnatural for it to be left behind.

Begin training when your puppy is tired and has been out and done his business. It is important that you place the puppy in a place where it is safe and used to be. Divert his attention with a chew stick, and vanishing from sight a few minutes. Let the radio play as if you are still in the house.

Ideally you must return before the dog becomes restless. If your puppy whines, wait to go back, the dog has been calm and quiet for approx. 2 min. Ignore your puppy when you re-see him (it's hard, but it helps not to dramatize the experience for the dog).

Repeat home alone workout several times a day for a few minutes. Extend period, gradually, but do not go too fast.

You can benefit greatly by obtaining a baby gate. Place it in a way, so the puppy can not come into direct contact with you but can hear and perhaps see that you are near.

The gate can also hinder the puppy's access to dangerous stairs, keep it away from a busy kitchen or out of the bucket, when you wash the floor.

More than a name
Have you thought about how you use your dog's name? Will you say or yell you dogs name once it has got hold of the table cloth and is pulling it off the table with all the lunch on? Or do you use the name when you call your puppy to you? Too often we use the dogs name in situations where we really should have used "No!". And this can easily result in your dog perceives his name as something that is negative which of cause is not conducive not lease for re-call training… he is much more likely to come back to a name that he positive associations with.

You can quickly get back on track by doing the following little exercise:

Take a handful of treats in your pocket. Say the dog's name. When the dog looks at you, you give it a treat immediately and say "Good!", While you repeat the dog's name. Repeat several times while you move around the house. You then reward your dog to look at you when you say its name and will associate the name with something nice and good contact.

In the future you'll use the dog's name when you want his attention in a positive context. If you must interrupt the dog in something, use instead "No!".


RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERSHIP

Basic tips for responsible dog ownership
ALWAYS be respective, considerate and responsible in your dealing with others when out with your dog (animals & humans alike)

  • Do not allow your dog to chase birds, squirrels, cats (chasing should only be part of a mutually enjoyable game with other dogs)
  • Train your dog in elementary obedience as a minimum
  • Feed your dog a suitable and nutritionally balanced diet (from its own dish)
  • Keep your dog on a lead unless in a suitable green area and then only take of lead if you have good recall and with total respect and consideration for all other users!
  • Always "Scoop the poop"!
  • Remember your dog's bark can be a nuisance and seem threatening
  • Provide your dog with his own bed.
  • Never take your dog into shops, restaurants, library or like without first asking for permission.
  • Keep your dog clean and regularly groomed.
  • Talk with your vet about neutering and vaccination.
  • Register your pet with a vet of your choice.

CHILDREN AND DOGS

It should not be tormenting children at breakfast, who gets the family to buy a dog that Sunday afternoon! But that being said, it must also be said that it can be very rewarding for kids to grow up with a dog. They can learn to associate with other living beings with reason, respect and caring. But never expect that a child can be held responsible for any animal – nor a dog. Choice of and the care for the dog is always the responsibility of the adult.

In dog books you will often see – this doge is "child friendly". As a starting point all breeds are, if they are acclimated and have good experiences with children from puppy stage. For the dog to be happy and comfortable with both unfamiliar children and adults, it is therefore important that the puppy is trained and socialized.

When you get a dog home, it is important for both children and dog learn some basic rules about what you can and can not do. Furthermore, one should never let small children and dogs alone together. Have a good set of rules for playing with the dog, there is then a high probability that the outcome is positive. The framework must be in place before the dog arrives home.

 

CANINE ORIGIN

Today scientists agree that the dog, Canis lupus familiaris, is directly descended from the wolf, Canis lupus lupus. Until recently it was thought that the dog might also stem from the Golden jackal, today however scientists are confident that the wolf is the dog's single ancestor.

The knowledge we have today of how the dog evolved from the wild wolf to the domesticated domestic dogs is important for our understanding of the dog today.

Canis is the Latin name for the canine. There are several species, including wolf, the Australian dingo, coyote, and of course domestic dogs - the one we know best.
The dog emerged as a consequence of early humans domesticating wild wolves.

There is still uncertainty surrounding when the dog was domesticated, or teamed with man, and became a permanent part of man's household. The process has probably been slow occurring over several thousand years. Researchers believe that wild wolves probably have stayed near human settlements and have eaten human remains. Slowly, the wolf / dog moved closer and closer, and eventually join man.

Genetic studies have shown that domestic dogs, have stood out from the wolf, as a separate subspecies for as long as 135,000 years. This however does not necessarily mean that dogs were tamed and made into livestock at such an early stage. One explanation for this may be the dog emerged as a separate subspecies in the meeting with the man, and thus lived as a separate line before it was domesticated. Additionally, the genetic dating may be inaccurate if it has not sufficiently taken into account the likely significant mixture of wolves and dogs' genes, even after they parted.

Archaeological evidence indicates the latest date for which domestication at about 14,000 years ago. This fits well with other genetic studies that suggest that all domestic dogs today have common ancestors who lived in Asia for some 15,000 years ago.

Dog breeds development
Today there are more than 400 dog breeds, which vary in size from the very largest, as Irish Wolfhounds and Great Danes, the smallest of Chihuahua. They also vary in color, size, temperament and psyche.

Some breeds have evolved gradually during the domesticated dog's development with people, but virtually all modern breeds are of relatively new origin. Many of these breeds are the product of artificial selection of individuals. This means that one has grown on certain properties within a breed, such as color or height, for several years, before finally ending up with a new breed. Many of these breeds are highly specialized and there are large differences between breeds. Despite these major differences, dogs are still able to recognize dogs from other animals.
The definition of a breed that is a debatable issue. Depending on the size of the original, basic stock, certain breeds have problems with inbreeding, if their genetic material is not large enough. Dog breeders are increasingly aware of the problem of too narrow genetic material, and trying to maintain a broad range of genetic material. In special cases have been granted an exemption to the import of genetic material from other races in a particular race, to give the breed more genetic material.

Mixing Breeds
What we now call mixed breeds are dogs that do not belong to any particular race, because they are a mixture of two or more breeds, mixed breeds and purebred dogs are just as good as a company, pets, working animals or as participating in dog sports of various kinds. The problem of mixed dogs can be that, if bought as puppies, it can be difficult to predict the type/size of dog you will end up with also they are usually not checked for various hereditary diseases, since there is no pedigree leading association requires this.

 

FAQ'S - HEALTH & SAFETY

Q: Why vaccinate my dog against kennel cough?

A: Kennel cough is a highly contagious airborne virus, which affects the dog’s respiratory tract. The coughing can last for some weeks and during this time more serious complications such as pneumonia could arise. In puppies or older dogs, or where there are other health problems, such complications can sometimes prove fatal.

----

Q: When will a bitch be on heath for the first time and what happens?

A: The first heat usually occurs between 7-18 months of age, earlier in small breeds - a little later the larger. Most females have had their season within the first year of life. It typically last 3 weeks, but may vary in length from 3 -21 days. In the first half of the season bleeding is seen. Toward ovulation bleeding decreases and the excretion becomes clearer. Ovulation typically occurs between 12th and 14 day, but even here there is much variation. The exact time of ovulation - and therefore the optimal mating time - can be determined using a blood test in which blood levels of progesterone is measured. After a birth the bitch will be on heath around 5 - 8 months later.

----

Q: How do I prevent my dog getting plaque?

A: In general a dogs teeth benefits from being used. Therefore chew bones rather than cookies and a good quality dried food or fresh food diet (rather than tinned food). Daily brushing with dog toothpaste is also a good routine to get you and your dog used to

There is however no doubt that to effectively prevent the buildup of the bacteria that causes plaque you will need to use a bacteria killing product such as klorhexidin mouth spray. Research has show that with 2 weekly treatments you can achieve an efficient prevention.

----

Q: Why my dog licks his paws in summer?

A: When a dog licks paws it can express boredom but mostly it is one of the symptoms of a hypersensitivity reaction in the skin - an allergic condition. Depending on what the dog is allergic to, the symptom may occur seasonally for instance in the summer. Itchy feet may also be seen in attacks by follicle mite.

----

Q: How to change food without the dog getting diarrhea?

A: Any change to new food needs to happen gradually. As a rule of thumb mix ½ quantity of the new food with ½ volume of the "old" food for 3-4 days. Now the dog's digestive system has become accustomed with the change and you can feed 100% of the new food without your dog getting diarrhea.

----

Q: How often should I wash my dog with shampoo?

A: If you use a good dog shampoo, you may wash your dog as often as you feel necessary. Just remember to rinse shampoo out completely. Your own shampoo is unfit for washing your dog there is a difference between a dog's skin and human’s skin pH. If your dog is suffering from a skin disease it may be necessary to wash several times a week with a medicated shampoo.

----

Q: How to remove a tick Easiest?

A: A tick is removed most easily and with minimal risk of infection by using a small plastic hook called a Hook Haak. The hook can be purchased from your Vet. The hook is easily placed over the head of the tick, turn a couple of times and the tick will then release its grip.

Never squeeze or press the tick while it is still sitting on the skin. If you do, you can directly transfer the poison into the bloodstream. If the skin is swollen or red where the tick has bitten you should always contact the vet.

----

Q: My dog is vomiting and has diarrhea. What can I do? 

A: If your dog, despite some vomiting and diarrhea still seem enthusiastic and fresh you can let him fast for a period of 24 hours. Over this time the dog can only have boiled tempered water to drink in small portions. During this period you could (after consulting with your vet) give your dog ANICUR and ZOOLAC. CANICUR provides salt and sugar substance and gives protection for the intestinal mucosa. ZOOLAC provides healthy digestive bacteria. You should be able to get both ZOOLAC and CANICUR from your Veterinarians.

If the vomiting and diarrhea declines or disappear within 24 hours you can begin to offer your dog diet food. You can buy diet food from your vet or you can make it your self by boiling fish and rice (this rice needs to be well / over cooked). Offer your dog many but small meals.
If your dog:
Has violent vomiting and increasing diarrhea
Becomes lethargic, more quiet or runs a fever (over 39)
Vomits blood or has blood in the stool - You need to contact your vet as soon as possible

----

Q: Do I need to put ID tag and/or microchip my dog?

A: Thousands of dogs go missing every year and are not returned to their owner because they have no form of identification. It is therefore important to make sure that your dog is properly identified so that if lost, when found, he can be returned to you as quickly as possible.
It is a legal requirement for your dog to wear an id tag on his collar but it is also highly advisable to have your dog micro chipped as soon as possible as collars can fall - or be taken off. You can also have your dog ear tattooed but it is painful and can be difficult to read.
Identification Tags
The Control of Dogs Order 1992 mandates that any dog in a public place must wear a collar with the name and address (including postcode) of the owner engraved or written on it, or engraved on a tag. Your telephone number is optional (but advisable). You can be fined up to £5,000 if your dog does not wear an identification tag.

Exceptions
Dogs used on official duties by the armed forces, HM Customs & Excise or the police
Dogs used for sporting purposes and packs of hounds
Dogs used for the capture or destruction of vermin
Dogs used for driving or tending cattle or sheep
Guide Dogs for the Blind
Dogs used for emergency rescue work

Some people like to display the dog's name on the tag as a useful assistance if the dog should be found, while others feel this could be used in a more negative way, if a dog should be stolen.

It can also be difficult to display the whole address and telephone number on a small 1 inch tag. But putting full post code and number of house should provide sufficient information but ask where you buy your tag.

To order dog tags ask your vet or try: http://www.the-kennel-club.org.uk/asp/TAGS/

----

Q: How do I transport my dog safely in the car?

A: The safest is in a separate dog crate in the back of the car. You can also buy a harness for the dog that can be used with the cars safety belts.
