Puppy ignores owners request to stop chewing the Christmas tree39s

Puppy ignores owners request to stop chewing the Christmas tree

This year is Charlie the french bulldogs first Christmas and with his new family he helped in putting up the Christmas tree (more in chewing the baubles). Not only are the round colourful baubles fun to look at and play with for Charlie he has now decided the artificial Christmas tree tastes particularly nice too. Naturally dogs are inquisitive animals who love to investigate everything you bring into the home. As Christmas approaches and people start to put up their Christmas tree we cannot expect them not to notice it. In addition to the Christmas tree theres the lights, decorations and a potential place to pee. A colorful tree appearing in your home can lead to it being urinated on or even being knocked down.  Whether real or fake, the Christmas tree can be one of the most baffling parts about Christmas for our pets. Real Christmas trees hail from the pine family, generally pine is considered to not be particularly toxic to people or pets. However, Christmas trees can pose a risk to pets if they pick up sharp needles in their paws or play under or around the tree where needles might cause damage to their eyes. It is therefore important to keep an eye on your dog when around the Christmas tree. Dogs will not usually try to eat the tree although there is always the odd exception and ingesting a small amount of pine sap will not usually pose a large threat to health. If a dog were to ingest a large quantity of sap it may cause a minor gastrointestinal irritation and upset stomach. Advice most will give is to choose a non-shedding tree out of choice if you prefer to have a real tree over an artificial one.

Frenchie puppy loves his new squeaky pig toy 28s

Frenchie puppy loves his new squeaky pig toy

Who would of thought a squeaky pig toy could be so entertaining..this video shows Charlie the french bulldog enjoying his new favourite toy. As most of us well know many of our four-legged companions go crazy for a new toy, and it’s often a toy with a squeak or loud noise. We can question though why dogs love squeaky toys so much? As much as we may believe the little rascal just enjoys irritating us with the squeaky noise, there are several theories about why dogs are attracted to squeaky toys. For anyone who has purchased a squeaky toy for their dog before you might notice that your dog seems to lose enthusiasm for a toy once the squeak-mechanism has been removed, so it does seem as though it’s the squeaking aspect of the toy the dog is drawn to, rather than just the toy itself. Domestic dogs are descended from wolves and some theorize that the squeaky noise is reminiscent of the squeaking sound frightened or injured prey would make, appealing to your dog’s hunting instincts. Once the squeaker has been removed, the prey is “dead” and your dog’s job is complete. There are many more interesting theories that we can examine to better understand our dogs behaviour.

Frenchie puppy introduced to new bed, absolutely loves it

With winter time approaching and temperatures rapidly plummeting Charlie the french bulldog was due a new warmer and comfier bed, this video shows Charlie giving his owners approval when they introduce him to this new luxury. A good bed provides insulation, support for our backs and joints, warmth, and a feeling of security. When a dog has a bed of their own, they get all of these benefits, and more. When pet owners ask what items they need to purchase for their dog, a good dog bed is always at the top of the list alongside a collar, lead, food, and feeding/water bowls. Dog beds are extremely important, in fact, we consider beds essential for all dogs regardless of age, breed or size. Dog beds provide important benefits: Insulation-Dog beds keep your dog off the cold, hard floors. In the wintertime especially, many dogs love to curl up in a nesting-type bed which provides warmth for both comfort and good health. Privacy & security-Beds give your dog his own space throughout your home to retreat to whenever necessary. They will love having one or more places to call their very own. Cushioning for joints and bones- a soft place to rest is especially important for older, arthritic, or overweight dogs. Injury prevention-dog beds help prevent injuries by keeping your dog from jumping up to and down from high furniture. This is especially important for older dogs and smaller breeds. Beds are so much more than soft squares placed around the home, dog beds offer many benefits and play a large role in your dogs ongoing health and satisfaction.
