Finding Your “Perfect Pot of Gold”
These tornadoes in adorable, sweet, kissable, fuzzy little packages can take a happy, clean home and turn it into a house of horrors to rival the best carnival’s. From their tiny little knives of teeth to their complete lack of comprehension of the word “No,” puppies are trouble. Yet one look into that open, innocent little face and those big, loving eyes that consider you a god and you’re hooked. It’s an addiction, but there’s really no cure besides a good education in all things puppy-related.

Caring for Him from the inside out
His performance, health, and longevity depend, in part on what you choose to feed him. Dogs’ diets can be as complex as ours, and it’s important to hit all of the vital nutritional bases. Lack of the proper vitamins and nutrients can lead to upset stomachs, skin problems, brittle bones, obesity, and even – in the worst cases – death. Proper nutrition is the building block of his overall health. Without the right nutrition and exercise, his defenses against disease and disorders are weakened. Because most dogs are usually fed one type of food, choosing the best diet is an important and often daunting decision. In ‘Golden Retriever Care And Training Guide’ you will find out about commercial vs. home-prepared diets, commercial foods, canine nutrition, feeding & weight and eating related conditions.
Keeping Him Healthy
The right diet, exercise and care really make all the difference. When you get this ‘Golden Retriever Care And Training Guide’ you will also find details of conditions and illnesses that can crop up. Early detection and prevention will help your golden live a longer, happier life.
You will also learn the right way to groom him. Grooming won’t only make him look beautiful; it can also prevent serious health problems. Just as with people, good grooming involves more than an occasional brushing of the hair. Keeping the nails, teeth, eyes, and ears well groomed is just as important.
In choosing to add him to your family you are getting a great companion and friend. Imagine what it will be like to do things together like run along the beach, catch tennis balls, play in the park and hike in the mountains. To do these things, however, he needs guidance.
Many dog owners won’t admit their dog needs training. “He does everything I ask,” they say. Yet when asked specific questions about their dog’s behavior, the story changes. A trained dog is not going to jump on people, dash out the door each time it is opened, or raid the trash can. As a dog owner you can benefit from it, too. You will learn how to teach your dog, how to praise him, and how to motivate him to want to be good. You will also learn how to prevent problem behavior from happening and how to correct the mistakes that do occur.
That means teaching him that he is living in your house, and not his.
Guidance helps build a relationship between you and him. This relationship is built on trust, affection, and mutual respect. It can help him become your best friend and a well-mannered companion who is a joy to spend time with. Dog training is much more than the traditional sit, down, stay, and come . It means teaching him that he is living in your house, and not his. It means that you can establish some household rules and that he is expected to follow those rules. It doesn’t mean that you will be turning him into a little robot, but it will cause your dog to look at you differently. It isn’t something you do to him, but rather something that the two of you do together.
Taking Care Of Older Dog
Just like older humans, dealing with older dogs carries with it a unique set of challenges, needs, and responsibilities. Just because he doesn’t show you all of the effects of his increasing age doesn’t mean they’re not real. They aim to please and would rather play than nurse a sore limb, so why would you think they’d make their pain in aging obvious? Many times, owners realize that their dogs are suffering from the effects of aging before the dogs themselves, particularly dogs that have a very playful, rambunctious nature.
He doesn’t really have a concept of time (you will notice that he will be just as happy to see you after an hour apart as he is when you’ve been gone for a week), so he won’t understand what’s happening to his body. He may be confused about the pains he’s feeling, and he’ll be looking to you to help him deal with them.
And that’s just a fraction of what you get!
