Train Your Dogs Using Hand Signals

You can train your dog anything with the use of hand signals. You do not necessarily have to do any flashy forms of training your dog. Your dog can pick up patterns through your hand signals. Maybe you can finally teach your dog to sit, roll over, and play dead.

Training your dogs can result in better communication and trust between both of you. There is nothing that feels better when you and your dog operate on the same frequency. You can even train all the dogs in your household. Train everyone and move like a pack whenever you go out in public!

Professional dog trainers prefer when a dog knows what to do. The mere act of understanding its surroundings and its tasks can create a safer environment.

You can make everyone feel safer, including yourself, around your dog.

Dogs Cannot Eat Chocolates

Whenever your dogs beg profusely for a chocolate bar you are eating, it is best not to give in to the puppy’s eyes. A certain amount of chocolate can be lethal to dogs.

The dose depends on the breed, size, age of the dog. If you want to be sure you should keep your dog away from chocolates. It would be best if you told everyone in your household that dogs are not allowed to eat chocolates.

You will never know when your dogs will try to use their puppy dog eyes to get a little bite. You do not want the next meal of your dog to be the last.

Chocolate contains a toxic chemical to dogs that cause seizures. Ingesting chocolate also decreases the blood flow to the brain of your dog.  You want your best friend to be safe and to be able to play with you. Keep him or her away from chocolates.

Dogs Have More Than Two Eyelids

Our furry friends have three eyelids! You may ask how your dog can have three eyelids when you only see two eyes.

Our dogs have a third eyelid called the nictitating membrane, or the ‘haw.’ This nictitating membrane is responsible for keeping the eyes always protected and lubricated.

It is probably best that our dogs have all the eye protection and lubrication in the world.  We will never know what our furry, four-legged friends are always up to, and this third eyelid should keep them safe.
