As the weather starts to cool off, dogs start to stay inside a bit more to keep warm and after a while might get a bit of cabin fever. Preventing cabin fever can be as simple as taking the dog for a walk but when the weather gets cold, windy and rainy a lot of you would be quite reluctant to venture outdoors. Mental stimulation can tire out a dog a lot quicker then physical stimulation – mental stimulation can also help a dog become smarter and more behaved. The following indoor games will make sure your pooch is well stimulated and not tearing up the house.
Choose a scent and pair that scent with food by letting the dog sniff the scent and receiving a treat. After repeating this exercise several times your dog will know that the scent equals food. Hide the scent somewhere and allow... Click here to read more....

The Fox Terriers got their name from their job in the hunting teams. Flushing out foxes with their long noses and their boundless energy. They were sometimes kept in riders saddlebags during the hunt then let loose to sniff out the foxes.

Researches say that big dogs age quicker which is why they die younger. Across other species large mammals live longer than small animals. Elephants for an example will live up to 70 years of age in the wild, whereas a mouse will only reach the age of 4.
With dog’s it is quite the opposite, a big dog’s life expectancy can be almost half of a little dog. A 70kg Great Dane has an average life span of 7 years while a 4 kg toy poodle will be expected to live to 14years or longer.
To shed light on this matter, researchers have analysed the deaths in 74 breeds of over 56,000 dogs in veterinary teaching hospitals. Scientists found that in fact large breeds age at faster rates then small breeds. Amongst many dog breeds, an increase of 2 kg in body... Click here to read more....

Dogs are predominantly carnivores, that is to say their digestive system is optimised to process meat. It has, however, been known for a long time that the modern day dog is capable of digesting carbohydrates as well. The reason they are able to do this is that they produce amylase, an enzyme that breaks down starchy carbohydrates, in the small intestine. Herbivores are better at this type of digestion because they produce amylase at the start of the digestive tract: in the mouth, in the salivary glands.
Carnivores have a relatively simple and short digestive system. It consists of one stomach as opposed to the four that ruminants (a mammal that digests plant-based food by initially softening it within its first compartment of the stomach) have, Food simply passes through in one direction without having to be regurgitated. The stomach itself contains extremely strong acids which quickly break down proteins... Click here to read more....
