The outside world

Over high hills and though mountains, the Husky crew traveled. Never turning back, looking just forth. If one member of the crew didn’t survive the journey the rest didn’t. But this story  is not about the crew instead  a young Red Husky named Rose, she lived a hash life like the rest. But  never parted from the team.

One dark, stormy night Rose was bored so she scrambled from her mothers grip and ran into the distance, maybe it wasn’t such a good idea.

Next chapter coming soon!

Puppy Training

 Puppy Training
Before you buy a puppy you must understand some basic training steps in order for your puppy to be well behaved from the day you bring him into your home. Follow the above links to find out about some of these basic puppy training steps. Most importantly never punish by hitting or harming your puppy in anyway. Bad behaviour should be ignored. This lack of attention is itself enough punishment for your puppy.  Always praise your puppy for good behaviour with a treat, toy, or even just lots of attention. Puppy will soon realise why he is being praised and will continue with this good behaviour.

 

Puppy Maturity
Most dog breeds, puppies mature around the age of 12 months. There are breeds which take alot longer to fully mature, and who remain puppy like until the age of around 24 months. Owning a puppy takes alot of patience, you should be aware that you will have alot of puppy behaviours to deal with until they fully mature.
Maturity by Adult Weight – Although puppies grow and mature very quickly when compared to humans, it’s also important to know that not all sizes and breeds develop at the same rate. The smaller the breed, the quicker he/she will mature:
  • A small-breed puppy reaches adult weight by 9-12 months
  • A medium-breed puppy reaches adult weight by 12 months.
  • A large-breed puppy reaches adult weight by 18-24 months.

Bringing him home: 8- 12 weeks
It is important that a puppy is not too young to be taken from its mother and litter. From 8 weeks old is the minimum age.puppy 8 weeks 275x300 Puppy Training

By the time you have welcomed your puppy home,  his brain is ready to start soaking up all the new experiences you can give him. He’ll learn fast, so it’s important to make sure you’re teaching him the right things. Learning basic manners and house training etc are very important. Remember your puppy is still too young to be taken out and socialised with other dogs as they still need their vaccinations.

It’s also important to know that a puppy experiences it’s first ‘fear period’ somewhere between 8 and 12 weeks of age. Your pup may show fear or apprehension about people, places or things that he was previously unafraid of. It’s important to continue with socialization in a positive, upbeat way. But, also be careful not to expose him to situations or experiences that are unduly nerve-wracking for him. Its a big world for him to learn, take it easy and build up confidence with positive rewards.

16 weeks 300x238 Puppy Training Terrible Twos: 3 – 4 Months
Like the ‘terrible twos’ in humans, this is just the canine equivalent. During this stage of puppy development, your puppy will show increasing independence and may even occasionally ignore/challenge you. He’ll also be teething at this time, and his sore gums will lead him to bite and chewing on anything and everything. This is one of the puppy stages where you’ll probably find yourself saying “no” an awful lot! But, remember to use a firm conisitent tone and never use a harsh voice or physical punishments.

Socialisation is key: 5 – 10 months
Your puppy will continue to grow and develop at an amazing rate during this period. It’s critically important to continue his training and socialisation experiences, as he’ll be making assumptions and decisions about the world, and his place in it, during this stage of puppy development. He will continue to challenge you and test the limits too, so be prepared.

Get your puppy spayed or neutered during this period. These procedures have a positive impact on your puppy’s future health and helps to reduce the huge number of unwanted puppies born every year.puppy socialisation 300x176 Puppy Training

Teenage Challenge: 10 months – 1 year
If a small breed your puppy will reach maturity during this time frame. Although your pup may look like an adult dog by now, he may still be quite immature in his behavior. He’ll also have tons of energy, but not necessarily a lot of common sense – Hence the “Teenage” term.

Pups of some breeds may become quite challenging at this point, and may make subtle (or even quite ‘in your face’) attempts at dominance. It’s important to continue obedience classes and socialisation and to insist on good behavior and compliance with your rules. Stick with firm and consistent voice commands and positive reinforcement, you will need to be patient.

All grown up: 1 year +
Somewhere between 1 and 2 years of age, most dogs reach full sexual and developmental maturity. Your puppy’s growth will now taper off, although he will probably continue to ‘fill out’ over the next few months.
At this point you can start your pup on more vigorous exercise, such as jogging, agility etc. because his bones and joints are fully developed and less prone to stress injuries. You can now switch your pup over from his puppy food to a premium adult dog food, as his nutritional needs are changing. He should be obedient and well behaved by now, and all your hard work over the past months will have paid off.

Shetland Sheepdog Temperament

The Shetland Sheepdog, affectionately called the “Sheltie,” is one of the most trainable and loving breeds there is. They are incredibly intelligent and in tune to their owners thoughts and moods. They can be almost psychic when it comes to knowing what you are feeling. If you want to play, your Sheltie is ready to play. If you are sad, your Sheltie will show concern with a worried look and a few kisses. If you are not in the mood, your Sheltie will give you your space. They are sensitive and responsive to training, and sometimes respond to commands before they are given. They are one of the top breeds in the obedience ring, but they also excel in agility, herding, and flyball. They need a moderate amount of exercise every day, and they are happiest when they get this exercise outdoors. They are a working dog and they need a job to do. They need something to occupy their minds. If you don’t give them something, they will think of something on their own, which is usually not a good thing. They are also devoted companions and family dogs and are especially fond of children. They will want to be involved in everything you do and go everywhere you go. They will follow you from room to room, including the restroom. They are also protective, especially of “their” children, and will bark a warning whenever someone nears your door. They are sound sensitive and bark at all strange sounds, even the ones you never hear. Barking can be a problem with Shelties, as they seem to have a lot to say. They are very expressive and talk to you with whines, groans, grunts and a thousand different barks. (They can also smile.) Not only will they bark at you, they may also try to herd you. But it’s not personal. They will also try to herd children, bicycles, joggers, cars, ducks, and sometimes airplanes. They are usually naturally distrustful of strangers and should be socialized early in life. They are safest in a home with a fenced-in yard. They are peaceful other dogs and animals. A Sheltie needs to be a part of the family. They are an intensely loyal dog and will not do well if left alone. They love their families and crave human interaction. Owning a Sheltie is a 24-7 endeavor. They love attention. They love to learn. They love to please you. They also love to bark and to steal food from your children.

Shetland Sheepdog Training

The Shetland Sheepdog is the most intelligent and easiest to train of all dog breeds! He learns new commands quicker than any other breed, which makes him very easy to train.

Shetland Sheepdog Shedding

The Shetland Sheepdog is a very heavy shedder. He sheds an awful lot of hair! You’ll find hair all over your home, stuck to everything! You’ll probably even find it in the butter!

Shetland Sheepdog Grooming

The medium-length coat of the Shetland Sheepdog only requires an occasional brushing. But because he sheds excessively you may find yourself brushing him daily to remove loose hair. (What you get out with a brush doesn’t fall out in your home!)
