Rules "use" decorative dog
Little dog - a dog, too. It would seem that the statement is banal, but, as practice shows, the stereotype reigns everywhere that you don’t have to do a little doggie and care is easier and you can choose by visual indication. So how does the maintenance and upbringing of a decorative dog differ from a large working dog? Consider how to behave when choosing and raising small pets.
1. If you are going to buy a decorative dog designed to decorate (from fr. Décor - decoration) of your home and the life of your family, do not forget that it also has character, and if you like the cute little face of little York, this does not mean that by nature, he will be an angel and will not show his breed stubbornness, which many may envy. Read the characteristics of the breed you like, take some time to study the psychology of the future pet. Indeed, in the event of a mismatch between your characters, you risk acquiring not a joyful lump in the house, but a restless hurricane.
2Like any large dog, mini-breeds need a fair walk and even if not so intense, but still loads. Of course, you can teach a dog to even have all his physiological needs at home in a tray, but how will your pet differ from a cat? Behind the miniature build and cute appearance hides a dog's soul. The toy terrier, though a “toy”, is still a terrier with security properties. And the psyche of the dog, rarely going beyond the home, will be cracked. Socialization has not been canceled.
3. Raising a small dog is necessary! This problem is very acute today: everywhere you can meet hysterical, non-socialized, aggressive or, on the contrary, intimidated (which also, by the way, may manifest aggression) mini-dog, the owner of which simply closes his eyes to the problems of his pet, and because this little creature is experiencing a real tragedy. And why? Only because of the inability or unwillingness of the owner to explain to his pet how to behave in a given situation. You do not know how to do this - go to the dog handler, only before your four-legged friend becomes unbearable for you and for those around you. No one has ever enjoyed a pleasant bark or howl.
four.The training of miniature breeds is no different from the training of service and hunting. Confirmation of this - sports competitions, in which there is a class "mini". And do not think that your baby is not interested to jump over barriers or climb slides. Each dog likes activity, and it will accept any kind of communication with its owner with boundless gratitude.
5. The tasks that you set for your pet should be doable and not harmful. The expression “everything must be in moderation” applies to everything.
And finally, the basic rule that you must adhere to even in those moments when your funny crumb turns into an intolerable creature: enjoy the pleasure of communicating with your pupil, because you came to him for this. Something does not come out, you feel that you are starting to get nervous - stop, think for yourself, let your dog think, leave it on a leash for a while. Believe me, a solution to the situation will come to you later, the main thing is to look for it, because there are no unsolvable problems.
