  • Saint Bernard Puppies: The Gentle Giants

    Saint Bernard puppies are gentle giants.

    We know that sometimes large dogs get a bad rap, but these big beauties shouldn’t ever! They are extremely tender and tolerant. Put them in a family with kids and everyone will be pleased and happy to learn how well they get along. They are just too sweet and we love talking about them. Continue reading to learn even more, because they are one interesting breed!

    Plenty o’ Personality

    Saint Bernards puppies and adult dogs are loving and placid. People unfamiliar with their generally sweet dispositions are taken aback by their size and sometimes approach (or not) in fear. In some ways, we understand because Saint Bernard puppies are naturally quick to protect family members who they believe are in danger. In most cases, they are overwhelmingly friendly. They are perfect for families with children because they are known to be patient, especially with little kids who can be a little rough. They are careful not to injure the child, as they’re aware of their size.

    Sharing Your Space

    Saint Bernard puppies are social and they love being around family. Honestly, nothing makes them happier than participating in family activities. On the flip side, they will sulk and be sad if they’re left alone too much. In those cases, they can become a bit destructive, acting out of boredom. It’s imperative that they are trained as Saint Bernard puppies sooner than later. What you’ll learn, as they’re learning, is that they are quick studies.

    Big Dog – Big Diet

    You want to make sure that your Saint Bernard puppies are eating a well-balanced and nutritional meal. Of course you want to feed your dog the proper amounts, but be careful not to overfeed them, as they’re prone to obesity. Excess weight can strain the joints and create or worsen any problems in your dog’s hips or elbows. Saints have a life expectancy of 8 to 10 years so a proper diet and healthy living conditions will keep your pup around happy and healthy!

     

  • Remarkable Dachshund Facts

    We have previously talked about this fierce, quirky shaped, small dog and we’re doing it again!

    Dachshund puppies have been around for over 300 years and adored by all walks of life. There’s no wonder that we are highlighting these spunky pups. Continue reading to learn more quirky facts about Dachshund puppies.

    Dachshunds Galore

    The AKC first recognized the Dachshund breed in 1885, and they were originally only black and tan and one size. That was then, and this is now! You can find the Dachshund in 12 standard colors and three different kinds of markings. In addition to the various colors, they have two accepted sizes which are standard and miniature, and their coats can be smooth, long or wire-haired. Their personalities remain the same, so you have so many options to choose!

    Their “Hot Dog” Bodies

    There’s no doubt that Dachshund puppies have one of the most unique shapes. Their long little bodies make them one of the most recognized breeds out there. However, they weren’t bred to be marveled at for their cuteness. Over 300 years ago, they were bred to hunt badgers. Their name literally means “badger dog” in German. Their little legs and steadfast nature allowed them to enter badger dens and take on animals larger than they were in really small spaces.

    Dachshunds Are Respected

    Did you know that Dachshunds are the 11th most popular breed in America? They have so many qualities that make them great pet companions. They are exceptional guard dogs who will quickly alert family members to possible intruders (or the occasional mailman). They may have little bodies, but they are well known for their athleticism.

  • Cool Facts about The Siberian Husky

    In the meantime, take a look at some interesting facts about this majestic breed.

    What’s more striking about the Siberian Husky? Is it their big and fluffy coat or their piercing blue eyes? Maybe it’s both!

    Husky puppies have double coats which allow them to be warm in the winter. They have an undercoat that is short and keeps their bodies warm and insulated in cold climates. Their overcoat is very long and water-resistant, so when their romping and playing in the snow, it will fall off of them.

    Those piercing blue eyes serve the cold too. Because of their almond shapes, it allows Huskie puppies to squint to keep out the cold, snow, and ice. They are still able to see, however!

    Speaking of their blue eyes, this is not a result of a genetic malfunction as with other dogs with blue eyes. This is actually a physical trait unique to Siberian Huskies.

    They are natural born runners.

    Siberian Husky puppies were born as a result of creating the ideal sled dog. It is said they were closely related to the original Chukchi dogs of Siberia. This eventual creation of Husky puppies resulted in a dog that can run hundreds of miles a day, while still being able to tolerate the harsh cold and maintain their energy and stamina. They can regulate their own metabolism. Somehow Huskies burn through calories and never experience fatigue.

    These are just a few facts about Siberian Husky puppies, and there are tons more. If you’re interested in learning more, feel free to contact us today. You can also stop by our store and speak to one of our knowledgeable onsite pet counselors. They can help you decide if the Husky is a good fit for your family.
