  • My dog loves egg, either raw or scrambled. Eggs are actually easy for dogs to digest and are therefore good for dogs recovering from illness. It’s personal choice whether you scramble the eggs first before feeding but if you try one once and your dog has no ill effects then the occasional egg yolk will do your dog no harm.

  • Feeding Dogs Eggs

  • I agree with those who feed the egg yolk, but not with those who feed the egg white. The ‘white’ of the egg will strip the coat of essential oils (does the same in cats, too)

    Dogs seem to do well with yolks, and they love’em.

    In England, I had care of 5 racing Afghans and they got egg yolks every day, but then they were exercised 10 miles daily and raced twice a month (humane races in England). In America, I fed my dogs yolks once or twice a week, when I ate eggs and they never had a problem. Shiney coats all round and great source of protein.

    I prefer organic eggs and so that’s what my dogs got.

    I speak in the past tense because after my Dobie died I didn’t get another dog. My lifestyle doesn’t lend itself to that type of care for dogs now.

    All things in moderation (except no egg whites).

  • I know they’re good for dogs. Whole eggs even are good with the shell. If giving raw though, you may want to consider getting Organic Eggs as I’m not sure if there may be something that could potentially make a dog sick lurking out there somewhere.

  • Dog training are excellent and very helpful to build you a stronger relationship with your dog. Read more

    After I started training my dog, he became very attached to me and loves to stay by side as long as he can. But just going to them won’t help. You have to practice what they teach you outside of the class and you need to keep up with it at least every now and then after the class ends otherwise they’ll just go back to previous habits. This course is a really good place to go for dog obedience classes. It get’s your dog around other people and dogs to socialize while getting the training you need. As for electric collars, I would say to not get one. In my experience, they’re only a negative effect on your dog. I mean of course you’re going to need to correct your dog, but being positive and encouraging your dog works a lot faster and easier.

    Every dog is different, so unless you have a german shepherd or a really smart dog, it might take a while to train her. You might get frustrated with her, but go easy. She’s still a puppy and has a lot of energy. A backyard or somewhere to run will help her get rid of a lot of energy that might cause her to misbehave from boredom.

  • Dog Training is all about getting your canine to behave well, but some people do it for sports and other entertainment purposes. Some of the other reasons people train their dogs are:

    It rewarding since you get a sense of accomplishment once a dog can do something new.

    It is a good opportunity to bond with the dog – this is important for the dog and for the owner.

    You can make money when you train dogs as a business or for sport.

    Training the dog is fun and it challenges the owner and the dog.

    Different trainers have different techniques for training their canine. However, some techniques are more effective than others. To learn about the best techniques, visit a registered dog trainer, talk to a veterinarian, or do online or offline research.

    There are several types of training that you, or a professional, can explore to train dogs and these are:

    1) Behavior and obedience training: One training that is universal is behavior and obedience training. This is done on dogs of all ages, but it is better to start when the canine is a puppy because as they say, it is hard to teach old dogs new tricks. Behavior and obedience dog trainingbrings out the best in the dog and it makes understanding each other easier.

    2) House training: House training is very important and it should also start when the dog is still a puppy. House training is all about training the dog to have house manners and to respect your space. There are several techniques used for this and they include crate training and pad training for training the dog to ‘go’ outside.

    3) Positive reinforcement: Positive reinforcement is a new type of training approach and it is all about rewarding the dog for good behavior or for learning a new trick. All animals tend to perform better when there is a promise of a reward. Possible rewards are snacks, interaction with other dogs, giving the dog your attention, or giving the dog tug toys – the reward should take into consideration what the dog likes because dogs are different.

    4) Negative reinforcement: Negative reinforcement training approach has been used for many years where the dog is punished for failure to learn or to behave properly, but this does not work because it only makes the canine scared and causes it to lose confidence. Negative reinforcement techniques included beatings and electric shocks.

    5) Trick training: Trick training is done for fun, by those who want a sports dog, and those involved in other entertainment activities such as the circus. You should choose the dog carefully to avoid frustration because some dogs are easier to train than others.

    6) Teething: It is important to train dogs when they are teething because they are under a lot of pain and they usually chew on furniture such as table legs, shoes, and even wallpaper. Possible training techniques for discouraging the chewing are bad-smelling sprays on items that are at risk and giving the dog chew toys.

    7) Command training: It is possible to train dogs to follow commands. These commands include ‘sit’, ‘attack’, and ‘fetch’, among others. This requires patience and there are various techniques of dog training that can be used to achieve this such as giving rewards.

    I personally would not put your puppy on adult food until it is 1 year old. feeding a raw egg (not the shell) is recommended by alot of vets that I know it helps with a shiny coat and also gives a bit of extra protein,but most of the vets that I know only recommend it about once a week.=)

  • Feed them to your dog. It does make their coat nice and shiney, and I’ve done it for years with all our dogs we’ve had. Never had any bad experiences doing so. Good Luck! Have a Very Merry Christmas filled with Wealth, Health ,Happiness like no other. Remember to keep our troops in prayer and light a candle for those who can’t be with us.

  • As a professional dog trainer for over 16 years, I have to tell you my strong opinion that you need these group classes for obedience training.

    Other pet warehouses are there to get you to buy their products and hang around their strore. And their trainers are their employees…never forget they have an agenda. Most of the trainers have very little education–if they had actual training and skills they wouldn’t be there making just over minimum wage–trust me on this. But even if they did have experience and talent…a group setting is a terrible place for learning to take place. It’s distraction training and it is the LAST phase of training not the first. You wouldn’t have your child try to do their homework in a toy store, would you? Of course not…the level of distraction would be too high! It’s the same with dogs. Having said that, these classes can be an excellent way to socialize dogs…but not to train them. And while they appear to be cheaper than a professional trainer…you have to attend many more sessions to get the same results because of the poor learning environment–so you wind up spending MORE money for less training than you would with a professional. Save your money and go to someone who actually knows how to train dogs. OR, read books and try to train your dog yourself. There is nothing they train at a Petsmart or Petco that you can’t do yourself with a couple of hours of reading.
