Health And Grooming

Different breeds require different approaches to ensure that the dog remains healthy.

Nowadays, dog health and grooming practices are standardized almost no matter where you go.

Different breeds have different needs (shaggier dogs need to be groomed more often, etc.).

Because the world has become so much smaller through technology, care for breeds have become standardized from place to place.

The same couldn’t have been said until the past 50-100 years or so.

There was a time that different regions had to take various measures to take care of their dogs, due to the variance of climate.

As time passed with breeds being shuffled all over the world, health and grooming practices are geared more toward the breed, rather than the location.

There are never enough tips and tricks available to keep track of, to make sure an owner gives their pet the best shot at a long and healthy life.

Proper nutrition goes beyond what we’re feeding the dogs, such as exercise, baths, and grooming.

All of these are important, and with each breed comes different variables.

We’ll be covering the best ways to keep your dog healthy according to its breed on this site.

Unique Dog Breeds You May Not Have Heard Of

There are unique dogs that are meant for unique things.

Though some of these things might have eroded through the passage of time (bulldogs fighting bulls for one example), there will be needs that must be met in order to satiate whatever the dog’s bread-in instincts might be.

Some breeds are more challenging to take care of than others, and some require daily attention to things that others don’t.

One of our goals is to educate you about dog breeds so you don’t wind up choosing a dog that you might not be able to handle.

The range of differences and what makes a breed unique is heavily judged by their appearance.black pug lying on its tummy

Some dogs are covered with long shaggy hair such as the mop dogs, and others have distinct facial features such as the pug.

Some breeds can be mistaken for wild K9s such as wolves or coyotes. Some of these breeds even behave similarly, less the wild instincts.

Knowing the differences between these breeds will help you to have a good understanding of the nature and temperament of the dog.

Dog Breeds Created for Different Reasons in Different Countries

The majority of K9 breeds out there didn’t happen by accident.

They were deliberately bread with other breeds once upon a time, to add or subtract different characteristics into the dog.

Size, fur (type, thickness and length), levels of energy, obedience, and attitude, are a few traits that would be considered when breeders concentrated on creating a new breed of dog.

Often, it was for specific purposes that were important to the culture of the country the breeders called home.

Often, location dictated the requirements that the dog needed to thrive.

The List of Breeds Grow All the Time

Breeders around the world are still working with different kinds of dog, trying to come up with k9s that will either fill a purpose or need, or breed out perceived imperfections that some popular breeds might harbor. Often health-related issues.

In all, our love for dogs has only grown over time. Though technology and progress have removed many reasons people would own certain types of dog, there’s always going to have a place alongside mankind.

Dog Breeds Pros and Cons

There are pros and cons to everything out there, and pets are no exception.

For every breed of k9, there are pros about the particular breed, but cons that might be good to know whether it’s about your current dog, or a breed of dog you’re interested in purchasing one day.
