Best Dogs For Boar Hunting

When asking a wild boar hunter the best breed of dog for the job, opinions different. Many characteristics must combine to make a good wild pig dog, but popular breeds are often the cur, feist, pit bull, or American bulldog. Regardless of the breed, the best dog for the job is one that has great stamina for tracking these pigs.

While boars were introduced to the country when settlers bought their domesticated pigs and allowed them to run loose. Because pigs are of high intelligence, they were able to adapt and thrive and breed. It was not long before their numbers had increased exponentially and a dog was needed to control the population. The wild boars were not only known for being aggressive towards people they encountered, but they also ruin local vegetation and can harm small species in the area.

There are some things to know before setting out on a wild boar hunt; primarily that the worst time to hunt these animals is in Decemeber when litters are born. The sow becomes fiercely protective over her young, so not only can a hunter's dogs get harmed, but even the hunter himself. The sow makes a small depression in the earth where she lines it with grass and branches and has her offspring. When being hunted, the boar takes cover in dense thickets.

The cur is one dog with a great wild boar hunting reputation. They are capable and loyal, and have the ability to run long distances for a great amount of time. Many hunters also use the American bulldog for the wild boar hunt, although there are different variations of this breed. Many hunters do not use the Johnson line, which was bred with an English bulldog and a mastiff. However, the Scott lines are used as they were bred to be used for big game such as the boar.

It's important to know local laws and regulations before heading out on your wild boar hunting trip. Only fifteen states offer wild boar hunting; Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, and South Carolina. The laws vary in each of these areas, so doing your research will pay off, allowing the hunter a safe and legal wild boar hunt. Some hunters prefer to hire a guide, in which case they can suggest the proper equipment necessary for the hunt.

The Cone Collar For Dogs

A great deal of time is spent on people trying to find dog supplies online with varying success. It has been discussed previously as to things to look for when doing your dog supply search. Things like quality over price that sort of thing. This will again be discussed in the future for an array of topics but today we're going to focus on dog supplies that come into play when your dog returns from the vet.

Yes, I'm sure you've had to deal with it before. In most cases its when your dog has gone through that period where the vet recommends, as proceeds to accomplish, the removal of the sexual organs. It's an advisable and necessary part of a dogs life. But immediately proceeding this experience is the wait for the dog to get better.

This process usually takes 10 – 14 days. For the first two or three days you dog will be in an amount of pain that will take on various forms depending on the personality of your dog. Some may simply lay down on their bed and only move to eat or drink and go outside. Others will try to act normally but, upon noticing something is missing will spend their time dancing around the room and whining a bit. Do not worry because this is normal and it will go away. The only tough part for dog lovers is having to wait out the recovery time.

In most cases stitches will be used to close any incisions made during the surgery. When it comes to this it's important to watch your dog closely, especially if the dog is a "licker". Licking a wound is the dogs natural way of trying to clean it and sooth pain. But in this case licking can cause irritation to the wound and can help spread bacteria around it. Also, in most cases, licking is a precursor to biting and chewing. Left on their own, most dogs will have stitches removed. This is dangerous and in the event that is happens would require immediate attention and new stitches put in.

This is a bag thing for several reasons. When the dog requires to have stitches put back in the vet will have to readminister anesthetic. Limiting the dogs exposure to this is recommend which is why its used only when necessary. To avoid this from happening most vets recommend a special dog supply in order to stop the dog from chewing or biting their wound. It's a dog cone or e-collar. They're the cone shaped collars that attach to the dogs regular collar. With this the dog is unable to reach it's hind quarters and therefore is stopped from irritating the area.

The cones come in different sizes for the different size dogs obviously. But they are generally the same and usually cost about $ 10 and your vet. You may be able to find them cheaper or more expensive depending on where you buy dog ??supplies and how much of a quality dog ??supply you wish you purchase. Either way they each have the same affect.

As you could expect the majority of dogs that are required to wear these collars are not happy about it. Like their reactions to recovering from surgery their reactions to having a plastic collar strapped to their heads will be just as varied. Anywhere from ensuing in a constant struggle to remove the cone by banging their head on anything near and pawing incessantly at it to simply standing in the middle of the room and refusing to lay down until they're so tired they pass out. Again, just another one of the issues a dog owner needs to go through their their dog is recovering from surgery.

When it comes to looking for the right cone for your dog there are some who would go about their process of trying to find dog supplies online and would prefer to purchase the dog supply right from their usually place. This is fine but remember it's an important part of some dogs recovery. Even if the dog is not normally a chewer they can be unpredictable in their conditions, especially when they are sleepy and you're unable to watch them.

So if your dog has recently gone through a surgery and have to wear a dog cone then make sure you keep them as comfortable as possible and continue to remind yourself that despite their dislike of it, it's for their benefit and in a few days when their stitches and healed and it is not bothering them so much it can be removed and the dog will be on their way to normal.

When trying to find go supplies online remember that it is not always dog toys or food that is important. These items used for the dog to become healthy again are just as important. So make sure you apply the same tips to these supplies that you would to others.

Hip Dysplasia in Dogs – Signs, Symptoms and Solutions

Unfortunately, hip dysplasia in dogs is a very common problem, especially among large breeds. But do not let that stop you from enjoying the companionship of a Golden Retriever or any other big buddy out of fear for what the future might hold. Here's what you need to know.

What is Hip Dysplasia?

The word "dysplasia" literally means abnormal development. It happens when looseness in a dog's hip joint keeps the ball at the top of the thighbone from fitting snugly into the socket in the hip. It may be in only one hip, or both of them.

The constant friction caused by this misfit historically damages the joint. This damage tends to get worse with time, and the dog often develops arthritis, as well. Old age just is not much fun for a dog suffering from this joint problem.

Signs and Symptoms of Hip Dysplasia in Dogs

How did this happen, anyway? If a dog is going to be afflicted with this problem, he's usually born with it – though it may not develop for several years. It can show up sooner if a large breed dog grows too quickly as a puppy, or if it does a lot of jumping and running on slick floors or concrete at an early age.

Here are some symptoms to watch for:

  • Having difficulty standing up after sitting or lying down
  • Having difficulty walking, jumping, or going up and down stairs
  • Preferring to sit with both legs together on one side of his body
  • Letting you know it hurts when you touch his rear legs and hips
  • Doing the "bunny hop" when he runs, by keeping both rear legs together

An x-ray is the only sure way to diagnose canine hip dysplasia. The best age for a definite diagnosis is between 12 and 18 months. Some affected dogs do not show any symptoms at all for several years. (They're the "tough guys," I guess.)

Solutions for Canine Hip Dysplasia

So can anything be done for these poor pooches? Well, that depends on how bad the problem is. If your dog has a mild case, you can keep him reliably comfortable with weight control, moderate exercise, and pain relievers (from your vet) when he needs them.

In more severe cases, the best treatment for hip dysplasia is surgery to repair some of the damage and lessen the pain. In fact, the hips can even be replaced with Teflon hips, although that's a more expensive route to go, as you can imagine.

Here are a few ways to help your dysplastic dog be more comfortable:

  • Work with your vet to monitor your puppy's growth
  • Keep your adult dog at a healthy weight
  • Help your dog get a moderate amount of exercise, either from gentle walks or easy swimming sessions
  • Dish out the pain relievers when you can see your dog is hurting

Work with your vet to make sure your canine companion is as comfortable as possible, no matter how mild or severe his symptoms might be. Hip dysplasia in dogs does not need to destroy your pooch's quality of life.

Quick Tips To Stop Dog Barking

Many dog ??owners are faced with the issue of their dogs barking too much. It not only is a problem for the owner but also for neighbors. A guide to stop dog barking would be good if it aimed at reducing excess barking and not completely silencing the dog. A dog that barks every once in a while warning of guests is a good thing. Training a dog to bark only at certain times is not easy. It's also not impossible.

The first thing to do in stopping barking is to find out why your dog is barking. Yes there is more than one reason. That's like saying that when a baby wears it's only for one reason. Dogs bark for reasons which can include territory, wanting something, playing, danger, other animals, if they're alone, trapped, dominating, bored or looking for a response from their pack. Usually dogs do not just bark for nothing. They have very acute senses of hearing and may be barking at something you do not know is even there.

A guide to stop dog barking must train your dog to understand what is acceptable and what is not. If your dog has no idea of ??its boundaries then it'll do whatever it wants. Make sure you train with some knowledge as you may end up positively reinforcing its barking when trying to get rid of it.

The biggest mistake in trying to stop barking is yelling and hollering at the dog. This actually makes the dog feel like it is doing something right. Also, when dogs bark a lot while outside, some people let them in the house. This is not a good idea and they may start to bark simply to gain entrance into the house.

Some people get so desperate at training their dog not to bark that they are beginning to contemplate surgery to stop barking. Training is a much better idea. Psychological rewards and reinforcing of behavior is the first step.
