Basic Education Games Sit and Stand: These simple commands teach your pup to obey and keep him mentally engaged. Come and Go: Call him to you with the "Come" command and direct him to another place with the "Go" command. 2. Play with Toys Chew Toys: Chew toys are ideal for Shih Tzu puppies who are teething. Choose soft toys that will not harm your teeth. Ball Games: You can play fetch by using a small ball suitable for your pup's mouth. Drawer Toys: Drawer toys made of durable and soft material improve your pup's pull and release reflexes. 3. Mind Games Find-and-Hold Game: Hide small treats so your pup can find them. This improves their ability to smell. Puzzle Toys: Puzzle toys in which you can put treats keep your pup mentally busy. 4. Socialization and Exercise Short Walks: You can take short walks to help them burn off their energy and get to know the environment. Park Games: If there is a safe park, you can socialize them by playing with other dogs there. 5. Indoor Games Tunnel Games: Small tunnels that you can build at home are a great game that your baby can have fun with. Corner Snatch: You can help your puppy find you by hiding in certain corners at home. 6. Things to Consider Short-term Play: Puppies can tire quickly, so keep play sessions short and let them rest often. Safety: Be careful not to leave small toy parts or dangerous items lying around. Overexertion: Be careful not to overexert the puppies. Observe them during play and let them rest when they get tired. 7. Postgame Reward and Praise: Reward and praise their good behavior. This makes the gaming process more fun and educationally beneficial. Water and Rest: Make sure your puppy does not forget to drink water and rest after playing. With these activities, you can ensure that your Shih Tzu puppy remains healthy and happy, both physically and mentally. Play will strengthen your bond and help your puppy grow up to be a happy dog.

Essential Ingredients for Homemade Dog Food

If you are making your dog's food at home, ensure that you add these ingredients to have a balanced and healthy Dog Food Recipe. KEY POINTS for Homemade Dog Food Diets In general, for dogs stick to the macronutrients of 1/3 animal protein, 1/3 healthy carbohydrate ( ie sweet potato), 1/3 veggies ( ie kale or spinach), Fat in the form of Sunflower oil/Coconut oil, Fiber in the form of Ground Flax, plus a calcium supplement ( ground eggshell). 1. Focus on the Protein with balanced amino acid profiles (lean beef, chicken, turkey and egg) 2. The Carbohydrates are not necessary, but the ‘non’ grain carbs provide additional nutrients: Brown rice (fiber, protein, Calcium, Iron, Selenium and B vitamins), Sweet Potato ( Fiber, Protein, Vitamin A,C,E, Potassium and B vitamins), Potato (Potassium, Vitamin C, B vitamins) 3. Additional ‘balanced’ fat is necessary, a good Omega 6:3 balanced, nutritious fat I prefer is sunflower oil, but can also use Coconut oil. 4. Omega 3 Fatty Acid Supplement should be added in the form of Krill, Fish or Flax oil. Krill is the most nutrient dense and beneficial of all the products., with a great EPA/DHA fatty acid profile, contains the antioxidant Astaxanthin, and being high in Vitamin D. 5. Calcium is required as bones are not being consumed. I prefer Egg Shells : dried, roasted in the oven for 10 mins, then ground with a coffee grinder. You can also use OTC calcium carbonate. 6. Vitamins: Vitamin D is needed, but is in the egg yolks and red meat as well as being in high levels in the Krill or Fish oil. Vitamin E is in the Sunflower Oil and Coconut Oil 7. Minerals: Iron is in the animal protein and spinach/kale, Zinc is in the red meat and flax seeds, Copper is in the spinach, Iodine is on the Egg Yolks, Potassium is in the Sweet Potato and Regular Potato 8. Fiber: the veggies, the brown rice and the best source in my opinion (also the healthiest) is the ground flax.

Elvis gives Patches a few choice words. Elvis was an "only puppy". He was born with a cleft lip and had a permanent sneer, hence the name Elvis. My wife bottle fed him until he was on solid food. He became a very strong, energetic, and physically active Bulldog. We gave him to a veterinary technician who always wanted a white bulldog, and she had helped treat him from birth. Everybody won with Elvis. We were blessed to have him, his new family was thrilled to get him. What he lacked in physical perfection, he made up for in personality. As you can see.

Why do dogs try to catch everything thrown? Does playing games make dogs happy? Do dogs try to catch everything thrown to play? Or is there another reason? Dogs are descendants of wolves, and they are famous for their ability to chase prey. Therefore, the instinct to follow and chase is found in all dogs. Of course, there is also the fact that domestication improved communication between humans and dogs. As a result, domestic dogs actually want to play and they do not miss any opportunity to do this. The desire to play arises from the need to get approval from us. Usually, when we play with our dog, we throw things and wait for him to go and fetch it because this is the game he is happiest with. In essence, his happiness is also a reward for us.

INTELLIGENCE IN DOGS It has been determined by research that some races are smarter than others. It is a fact that proper training also improves the intelligence of dogs. Especially dog owners cannot help but wonder about the intelligence level of their dogs. Many scientific studies are carried out to understand and measure dog intelligence, but there is no clear scientifically accepted test that fully determines the intelligence level. The average intelligence of dogs is equal to the intelligence of a 3-year-old child and is approximately 200 years old. It has been determined that they can understand the word. Dr. Julia Fishcher said, "What is known before creates a preliminary context for learning the new object, which is similar to people's motivation to learn." Paul Bloom points out that the contexts that dogs use to learn do not develop independently, but are motivated and limited by the owner. Accordingly, dogs learn what is shown if the owner points it. Stanley Coren, author of The Intelligence of Dogs, divided the intelligence of dogs into three separate classes. Adaptive Intelligence—A type of intelligence based on the knowledge and skills that a dog can acquire along with its ability to learn and solve problems. The dog's memory plays an important role in this. Although racial characteristics make a difference, the main determinant is the dog's learning capacity. A dog with high adaptive intelligence learns new relationships quickly, is a good observer, and gains experience from conditions and results. Instinctive Intelligence— It is the intelligence contained in the dog's genetic codes, related to its own skills. Training has nothing to do with instinctive intelligence. Training & Obedience and Working Intelligence (Training & Obedience Intelligence) Correct training programs improve the dog's intelligence. Dogs trained by experts get better scores in intelligence tests. In a study conducted on 200 farms in Canada, dog breeds were evaluated for their working and obedience intelligence. The jury of 199 people, consisting of breeders, referees, trainers and dog owners, determined the Border Collie dog as the smartest dog with 190 votes. Below you can see the ranking of the dogs according to their intelligence levels. 1. Border Collie 2. Poodle 3. German Shepherd Dog 4. Golden Retriever 5.Doberman 5. Shetland Sheep Dog 6. Labrador Retriever 7. Papillon 8.Rottweiler 9. Australian Shepherd 10. Pemproke Welsh Corgi Evaluation Dog breeds in the order from 1 to 10 are the smartest in terms of working and obedience intelligence. Most dogs belonging to these breeds will remember these new commands after they are repeated five times, without the need for much repetition to indicate that they understand. They will comply with the command given by their owners 95% or more of the time. They are truly tops in this dimension of intelligence and will do their job well even with inexperienced trainers.

The toys that small dogs love most are generally the ones that satisfy their natural hunting and chewing instincts and support their physical activity. Here are the types of toys that small dogs like the most: Chew Toys: Small dogs love using their teeth, so chew toys that are sturdy and promote dental health are ideal. Rubber bones or chewing strings fall into this category. Plush Toys: Plush toys are toys that small dogs love to hug and carry. These toys usually have parts that make noise, which attracts the attention of dogs. Balls and Frisbees: Small dogs love toss-and-fetch games because they are energetic. These types of toys both enable them to exercise and help them release their energy. Kong Toys: Kong toys, which can be filled with food or treats, keep dogs mentally busy. Small dogs love these types of toys because they are fun and contain rewards. Puzzle Toys: Toys that provide mental stimulation enable dogs to reach rewards by using their intelligence. Small dogs love these types of toys because they keep them busy and provide rewards. Tug-of-War Toys: String toys are ideal for tug-of-war games. Small dogs love such toys that they can play with their owners or other dogs. The most important thing you should pay attention to when choosing your dog's toys is that the toy is safe and durable. Additionally, choosing the most appropriate toys, taking into account your dog's interests and play style, will help keep him happy and healthy.

What is the Ideal Walking Duration for Dogs? It is not a correct approach to talk about a standard time for dogs' walking needs. The duration of the walk varies depending on the dog's age, breed and some other factors. Puppies need shorter walks than adult dogs. Although puppies have more energy, they are not as durable as adults and therefore get tired quickly. For this reason, it is best to take puppies for short but frequent walks. Going for a walk 3-4 times a day at approximately 10-minute intervals is sufficient to meet the needs of puppies. Older dogs can go on longer walks than puppies, but they should walk less than young adult dogs to avoid injury to their joints and muscles. For adult dogs, 20 to 30 minute walks once or twice a day are sufficient. If your dog does not have any health problems, you can extend this period. Adult dogs can take longer walks than both puppies and older dogs. As a matter of fact, young adults need to walk and exercise longer. The dog's breed, body type and personality are important factors that determine walking time. Many adult dogs love to go for walks. If you have time, extending the walking time during the day is one of the things that will make your dog happiest. Small breeds such as Chihuahua, Maltese, Papillion, Pomerian and Yorkshire Terrier generally have shorter walks. Since these dogs have short legs, they need to take more steps than larger breeds to travel the same distance. The walks of brachiocephalic breeds such as Boxer, Bulldog, French Bulldog or Pug should be short. The short noses of these dogs cause them to have difficulty breathing. Increased breathing rate, especially during exercise, causes dogs to strain. Dogs with long backs but short legs, such as Basset Hound, Dachsund, Pembroke Welsh Corgi and Scottish Terrier, generally have short walks. However, just because your dog is healthy and loves walking does not mean that it cannot go on long walks. You can decide the duration by looking at your dog's condition or consult a veterinarian on this issue. For short, flat-faced or small dog breeds, the recommended walking time is limited to 15 - 30 minutes and twice a day. It is better for your dog to take these walks during the cooler hours of the day. If your dog enjoys walking, you can extend this period. Medium to large breed dogs such as Beagles, English Springer Spaniels, Golden Retrievers or Labrador Retrievers can walk for long periods of time. Walking keeps these dogs healthy and fit. Athletic dogs such as the Australian Shepherd, Border Collie, Husky, Vizsla or Weimaraner have speed and endurance. These dogs not only like to take long walks, they also want to run and be active. They need a lot of exercise to stay calm and happy at home. Large and athletic breed dogs need to take walks of 30 to 60 minutes at least twice a day. You can increase the frequency or duration of walks as long as your dog is satisfied. The Right Time for a Walk Although dogs tend to go out at any time of the day, early hours of the day or sunset hours are ideal times for walks. Since the weather is cooler at these hours, your dog can have a fun walk without any difficulty. Especially in the hot months of summer, walks in the evening allow your dog to cool down and relax at the same time.

When can puppies go outside? Puppies learn many things from the first moment they arrive in their new homes. Their love of exploring increases their happiness and health. However, it is very important to do everything right and at the appropriate time. For example, puppies can go outside after they have been vaccinated. When they are vaccinated and they feel ready for socialization, then it is time for socialization and exploration. You should not neglect veterinary checks and vaccinations in order to leave beautiful memories with cute paws that add color to your life. Can I take my puppy out before he is fully vaccinated? It is not recommended to take your puppy outside until they are fully vaccinated as this could expose your dog to infestation. Your best bet is to wait until after the second pass, which is usually about eight weeks after the first dose. This will take time for your dog to build up resistance to picking his hunting system. However, if you live in an area where there is a high risk of spreading disease you should seek advice from your vet. He or she may also recommend waiting until after the second vaccination to take your puppy for a walk. A dog's immune system is formed through natural exposure to the outside world. It's important to socialize your puppy because your puppy has a natural curiosity and loves to sniff around. Getting your puppy used to the outdoors will help your pet grow into a happy, healthy adult dog. Of course, you have to wait for the second vaccine for this. It's important to remember that the risks of keeping your puppy indoors outweigh the risks of taking him out in public. Puppies are more likely to contract diseases from infected dogs and from touching surfaces contaminated with feces and urine from infected dogs.
