Yes. In order for a girl dog to become pregnant and have puppies she must be introduced and bred with a male dog. The only other way a “girl” dog can be bred is through Artificial Insemination where semen is collected from a “boy” dog and is then frozen until the “girl” dog is ready ot be bred Then the “girl” dog is taken to a Veterinarian where the vet will take a thin straw like tube of the “boy” dog’s semen that had been frozen at an earlier date and will “inject” the semen into the “girl” dog’s Uterus where the sperm can then fertilize the eggs that are ready to be fertilized in the “girl” dog’s Uterus. However, this second option is very expensive in comparison, and not all veterinarians perform this service. Comment ‘Boy’ dogs are called ‘dogs’; ‘girl’ dogs are called ‘bitches’!
It depends on the dog, and how long it is outside. A dog that has a thin coat of fur and is otherwise not made for cold weather will be effected much more than a dog with a thick fur coat and bred to withstand the cold (such as a Husky). A dog, without proper shelter and warmth from cold weather can become sick.
You can take off your dogs sweater by pulling the back off the sweater to dogs armpits and then slowly and gently remove the arms when that is done just pull the shirt off of the head and your done. I hope this helps
My pug goes outside without clothes because she hates them and is just fine granted in the winter she isnt outside very long. If your puggle isnt going to be out any longer than to do their business then it really doesnt need it but if it will be outside and it is below 35 degrees F, for more than an hour I would give it something to warm up with. Mine has a heated dog house it can go in also my GSD shares the dog house with my pug if she is outside a lot. (the barn cats like the heated dog house too and they all cuddle together when its cold out)
No; dogs are not small humans and do not react to human medications well. Over the counter pain medications for humans, like Tylenol, are actually toxic to dogs and can kill them even in small doses. If you suspect that your dog has arthritis (joint pain), you should take your dog to your veterinarian and he/she can prescribe a pain medication that is safe for your dog to take. You can also make it easier for your older dog to handle cold weather by providing warm blankets for him/her to lay on or providing heat to his/her resting place through the cold weather. Remember that dogs with long hair coats (German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, etc.) will tolerate the cold much better than humans while short-coated breeds (like Chihuahuas, Boston Terriers and Boxers) will be more like humans in their reaction to cold weather.
At the appropreiate age for a Bitch to breed would be around the age 9-10 months. This is usually where the Bitch, would go into her first heat also allowing the eggs to be fertile.You can tell when the dog is in heat because the bitch will bleed for 1-1.5 weeks. While she is bleeding she cannot bleed but for a week or so afterwards she is ready for breeding I do not think you should breed her right away at that age; only because she is still a pup herself. Allowing the Bitch to breed at the age of 1-2 years will give her the oppertuninty to grow up and to have the proper nutrients for the pups to consume. But be sure to keep a close eye on the Bitch While being in heat. You wouldn’t want a stray to come along and mate. Also be sure the Sire of the soon to be pups is the correct size. For the Bitches safety only because if your not carefull the pups could become to large for her a kill her during birth.
Well, not necessarily…if you just want to breed your dog because you want puppies that you will keep or give away for no reason, you do not need papers for her…but if you want to breed her professionally and with a professionally bred stud, then you do need papers proving that she has no health issues and that she is a purebred. You will also need papers if you would like to enter her in showmanship competitions, or if you would like to enter her puppies into competitions like wise.
Herding breeds such as Australian Shepherds, Border Collies, Corgis, Australian Kelpies, Queensland Heelers, Australian Cattle Dogs, Shetland Sheepdogs, and others have a *tendency* to have the traits that make good agility dogs: Eagerness to work, agility, speed, trainability. However, not all dogs of these breeds necessarily have these traits, and there are many other breeds where some or many of the individual dogs might have these traits. For example, many Papillons are amazing at agility, and so are some Poodles (of all sizes). Other working breeds might have some or all of those traits, such as Dobermans, Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, Chesapeake bay retrievers, Springer Spaniels, and many others. Don’t just get a dog for agility though, you need to be able to love it, even if it turns out hating agility. I have a dog agility course myself and a doberman she is still young so you must be very patient with your dog while doing the course.
Some of the low shedding dogs that don’t need professional grooming: Basenji, Affenpinscher, Chinese Crested, Dandie Dinmont Terrier, Havanese, Maltese, PBGV (Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen), Yorkshire Terrier, soft coated Wheaten Terrier, smooth coated Fox Terrier, Boxer, Tibetan Terrier, Silky Terrier, Hairless Chihuahua. Low shedding dogs that may need professional grooming: Airedale Terrier, Poodle, Schnauzer, Cockapoo (cross, Cocker Spaniel and Poodle) There are many more, but that will give you an idea. If allergies are the problem, note that it isn’t the fur of the dog, but the dander (dandruff-like) from the skin of the dog on the hair, as well as urine and saliva that cause allergies in people.
Yes horses can suffer heat stroke if left out in the sun for too long.Some native horses and ponies can survive winter without rugs but do need trees or some type of shelter from the cold .
Schnauzer dogs can survive in cold weather as long as their coat iskept intact. It is common to shave them down to give them theirdistinctive appearance.
Sledge dogs are naturally adapted to cold weather. They are generally the breeds (Huskies, Malamutes) that have very thick fur, and are very strong, and can deal with the extremes of ice and snow. Sled dogs are also well-trained..
The American Kennel Club will not acknowledge a litter from a male dog that is less than 8 months old. With every breed it varies the actual age they average to be when they are able to procreate.
Most animals in precipitative conditions have umbrellas growing out of their ears for obvious reasons. Some have evolved through natural selection to have developed rain resistant membranes whilst others wear mackintoshes and galoshes. However for windy weather, fish have developed vents in their necks to allow wind flow. Many species, to combat the old, take a hot beverage before sleeping to keep them toasty.
At least two years old and not until it has received a certification either in competition or by performing a recognized job applicable to it’s breed, health clearances showing it to be free of hereditary issues such as hip and elbow dysplasia, inherited eye diseases like cataracts and progressive retinal atrophy, inherited cardiac issues, and thyroid-auto immune problems.
Big dogs like a German Shepard, Golden Retrevier, Boxer, and even the middle sized dogs. Why you ask? It is because they need to burn off there extra fat they get from table scraps. Thanks for Asking!
It really depends on What you like. For a person who isn’t able to take a dog on walks a lot i think you would like a Shi Tzu or Yorkshire Terrier. For a person who is able to run with a dog daily i think you would like a Labrador or Dalmation. For a person who is wants to have a show dog i think you would like a Poodle. For a person who can walk a dog every now and then i think you would like a Dachshund. For a person who wants a very smart dog i think you would like a border collie. For a person who wants a sheep-herding dog i think you would like a border collie. I hope this helped you.
If you plan on breeding i suggest you read up on it first and always have a Vet check you dog before you plan on doing this sort of thing.. Smaller breeds can have problems when giving birth and breeding a dog is not a small chore. I have breed dogs for years and you as an owner need to make sure your dog is healthy before breeding a potential gene defect into a new litter
It really depends on what breed your dog is. Some breeds have undercoats and can naturally protect themselves from the cold; some do not. Siberian Huskies, for example, naturally have undercoats and Dalmatians do not. To be sure, check what breed of dog you have and read up on it. There are various resources online which can help you on this. If you’re still unsure, ask your question again here but be more specific about your dog’s breed. Answer Depends on the breed. If his coat was made for cold weather (ie: thick and fluffy)then he doesn’t need it. But it can never hurt. He may enjoy looking fashionable. Answer Yes, for small dogs with short hair it’s a good idea if it’s super cold out. Small dogs under 10 pounds to tea-cup sized dogs can get chilled easily. Larger dogs don’t need sweaters.
