If you ask most dog owners to tell you a thing or two about their dogs, they will tell you more than a thing or two, and most of the things they will tell you will be about how cute their dogs are. Dog owners consider their dogs as members of their families, which means they do all they can to give their dogs all the care that a family member deserves. However, in recent years, a lot of dog owners have started investing more time and money in dog care, in a bid to make their dog stand out and turn heads. In other words, many dog owners are now making their dogs models.

If you are thinking of making your dog a model or if you have a really cute dog that you would like to bring into show business, you must understand that making a dog a great model is not a walk in the park. It requires a lot of work and time. Therefore, getting your dog into show business is a hustle that you must find really enjoyable if you do not want to regret making the decision. The fun you had with your dog would be your pay off if things didn’t work out at the end of the day.

Ready to make your dog a supermodel? Here are some of the things you need to do:

Start taking his/her pictures

One of the ways to show people that your dog can be a model is by showing them awesome pictures of your dog. You do not need to spend a fortune on professional photos. You are the best photographer for your dog because no one knows your dog better than you and no one can capture your dog’s personality better than you. All you need to do is get a camera or a phone with a good camera, snap clear shots of your dog, and have them printed in a 10-by-8 inch format. You can then send the pictures with your dog’s resume to several agencies.

Get an agent

Almost all models and actors have agents, so you need to get one for your dog. Although getting your dog an agent does not guarantee success in show business, it gives your dog a good chance of becoming a successful model. Many agencies are in the business of finding dog-talent for movies, TV ads, and print ads. They are agencies that can propel your dog to stardom.

Before contacting an agent, you must:

  • Ensure your dog is comfortable around loud noises and bright light.
  • Ensure your dog is comfortable around a lot of people.
  • Ensure your dog can stay engaged for long hours.
  • Ensure your dog is well trained.
  • Ensure you can put in a lot of time and energy.
  • Be sure that any agent will fall in love with your dog at first sight.

Social Media

People look forward to winter because it is the period where they can have different kinds of fun with friends and family. Snow fun can only be had and enjoyed at the winter time of the year. The dog is ‘man’s best friend’ and it is also a part of the family, so it is important to think of ways to have fun with your dog as you plan the fun activities for yourself, your friends, and your family.

However, before you take your dog out in the snow, take the following into consideration:

  • Smaller dogs are closer to the ground and they have fewer fat reserves to conserve their body heat, therefore they get cold faster than bigger dogs. The bigger your dog, the more it can cope and play for a long time in cold weather.

  • Some dog breeds are resistant to cold, so if you check your dog’s coat and discover it has a double-coat, then your dog is a cold-resistant breed. Lucky dog! Lucky you!

  • If your dog is short haired, buy it a sweater to give it more protection from cold.

  • Fun in the snow is not for you and your dog if your dog is aged. You should always keep your old dog warm at all times.

  • Snow can get stuck in between your dog’s pads, causing discomfort and cuts to your dog. If you plan on playing with your dog in the snow for a long time, consider ways to protect their feet such as booties.

If you enjoy going on a long walk, taking your dog with you will not be a bad idea. However, buy your dog booties to protect their paws. Also, make sure your dog does not get in contact with frozen water.

Snowball Fights

Dogs like to run and catch things. Rolling snow into a ball and throwing it for your dog to catch is a fun activity you can have with your dog in the snow. They will be delighted by the ways the snow falls apart as they try to catch it.

Cross Country Skiing

If you have a dog that likes to run, then cross-country skiing will be a good way to have fun with it in the snow.

Skijoring

Skijoring is a winter sport where a person on skis is pulled by a horse, a dog or a motor vehicle; however, people prefer dogs for skijoring. The dogs provide power by running and pulling, and the skier guides them with their voice instructions. Dogs used for skijoring are dogs that have the required strength, body weight, speed, size, endurance, and energy. These are the reasons why skijoring can only be done with big dogs.

A walk through the snow-covered street

You and your dog can enjoy outdoor fun in a blanket of white snow covering the yards and trees. Don’t skip taking photos of your puppy in the snow!

A game of fetch

Dogs love playing and fetch is one of the best ideas to have fun with your dog especially in the snow. It will be a lot of fun for both of you.

Thanksgiving is a time to be happy and thankful with family and friends. Everyone looks forward to thanksgiving because is all about great food and merriment. Dogs also share in the joy of thanksgiving, but there are some thanksgiving foods that can make them not feel thankful to you.

2. Nuts

Nut are bad for dogs. It can cause your dog to go into toxic shock with seizures

3. Alcohol

Nothing should make you feed alcohol to dogs. Do not give them alcohol or any food that contain alcohol because the smallest amount of alcohol can be toxic to dogs. You should have this warning at the back of your mind because the merriment of thanksgiving can get you carried away to feed your dog beer or wine.

4. Turkey Skin

Turkey is a very important thanksgiving food that humans enjoy and so do dogs, but while the turkey skin is not harmful to humans, it is difficult for dogs to digest and can lead to pancreatitis. So before you give your dog turkey meat, remove the skin.

5. Raw Turkey

Cooked skinless turkey is ok for dogs, but raw turkey is not a good food for dogs. Giving them raw turkey exposes them to the risk of salmonella that can lead to serious health complications.

6. Nutmeg

Do not feed dogs foods containing Nutmeg because nutmeg contains hallucinogenic properties that can cause tremors and problems in the dog’s central nervous system.

7. Mushroom

Mushroom is fungi and when dogs eat fungi it leads to seizures, vomiting and even death.

8. Onions and Garlic

Onions and garlic contain sulphides which are toxic to dogs. Sulphides causes anaemia in dogs because it destroys their red blood cells.

9. Sage

Sage is found in many Thanksgiving recipes. It contains resins and oils, which if ingested by your dog, can upset its stomach.

10. Dough

Dough can rise in your dog’s stomach causing abdominal pain and vomiting. The raw eggs in dough can also give your dog salmonella. Dogs can eat the dough droppings on the floor so make sure you clean them off the floor immediately they fall.

Walking your dog on a dog leash is very important as it is the foundation for all other training for dogs. Some are of the opinion that dogs should be walked at least once in day while some believe that dogs should be walked at least 15 minutes twice a day. Despite knowing that this exercise can be a good stress reliever and bring happiness to both the pet and the owner, studies have shown that over 20% of dogs owners don’t walk them every day as they believe it can turn to a nightmare as their pet may decide to escape. If you really want to experience success in walking your dog, then consider the following seven tips:

1. Proper way of placing the dog collars: The collar should be placed in such a way that it is at the top of the dog’s neck. This part is the most sensitive region of the neck, it will be easy for you to bring him back to order whenever he is going out of control. There are some lovely dog collars available on our website.

2. Always pull on the lead: Under no circumstances should you let your dog be in the front. As soon as you leave the house, let the dog know you are in charge. He needs to understand who controls the pace because once you allow him at the front, he will assume the pack leader role and do whatever he wants to do.

3. Avoid using a flexi dog leash: The leash on your dog should not be too flexible because it limits your control. If your dog sees anything he likes, he will quickly move towards it if the leash is not firm. This can sometimes lead to accident.

4. Constantly correct your dog: Some of the times, your dog will take the wrong step or go different path from yours. Something might catch his attention and might want to sniff it, try and control him as soon as possible. You can go with a walking stick as something to also put your dog under check but you don’t have to hit him.

5. Always have a dog mace with you for protection: This is very important and should not be placed in the dog back pack but with you so that you can easily get when the need arise. Some of the people around you may have stray and aggressive dogs that might want to attack you or your dog. Using dog mace as a means of protection is better because it will permanently injure the attacking dog unlike stick. All you need to do is to spray it towards the dog.

6. Rewarding your dog: You can allow your dog to stop and sniff the grass at the end of the walk. This way of rewarding him also makes him feel relieved after the walk. Make sure it is always at the end so that he can always see it as a reward for a good walk.

7. Celebrate your dog: As soon as you get back home make it a habit to feed your dog and let him see it as another form of reward so that he can always look forward to that nice treat.
