World of Dog.

Extracts from this document...


It has long been said that a dog is a man's best friend and it has earned its right to be called that, and it will continue to occupy the place closest to man for another lot of years to come. Man's best friends come in many shapes, sizes, colours and textures because of thousands of years of evolution and breeding. The search engine that I used was www.google.co.uk and this is a screen shot of it. There are a lot of different breeds of dogs; these are just a few examples and descriptions: * Bullmastiff Energy: Exercise: Watchdog: Protection: Grooming: The bullmastiff is gentle and quite, a devoted companion and guardian. It is not easily roused, but once threatened it is fearless. It is stubborn and cannot easily be goaded into action against its will. Some can be aggressive toward strange dogs, but it is generally good with other household dogs and pets. It is good with children, but it may not be playful enough to satifsfy some children. The Bullmastiff needs a firm but loving home. It is not for fragile or timid owners. * Chinese Foo Energy: Exercise: submit opinion Watchdog: Protection: Grooming: submit opinion Chinese Foo are bold and energetic. * Catahoula Leopard They are very assertive and so would need quite a lot fo your attention to keep them entertained. ...read more.


Like many sporting breeds, it can be found in field or show types; the field type is generally smaller and perhaps more active. * Rottweiler Energy: Exercise: Watchdog: Protection: Grooming: Confident, bold, alert, and imposing, the Rottweiler is a popular choice for its protection abilities. As befitting its self-assured nature, it tend to be headstrong an stubborn and is often domineering. It is reserved, often wary, toward strangers. It may be overly protective if it perceives that its family is being threatened, and it may also attempt to "herd" children. This is a powerful breed that needs socialization, consistent training, and daily exercise to be the best it can be -a loyal family member and guardian. * Staffordshire bull terrier Energy: Exercise: Watchdog: Protection: Grooming: The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a fun-loving character that loves playing with its family and friends. It is typically playful, companionable, amiable, docile, and generally responsibe to its owner's wishes. Its love of a good game is rivaled only by its need for human companionship. It is also characteristically friendly toward strangers. Some can be strong willed. Although it doesn't usually look for a fight, it is fearless and tenacious. It may not do well around strange dogs or sometimes even household dogs that challenge it. It is generally very good with children; although usually gentle, some can be rambunctious. ...read more.


The sites are a lot of fun too so you wont just have to stare in to a boring black and white screen and read hours on end, everything is made interesting and fun for you as well as your little companion. Below are just a few examples of some colourful and relevant sites that I have come across: www.terrificpets.com On this site as you can see there are a lot of information and everything is easy and entertaining. Everything you could ever think you might need is right there made available for you. Another example is this one: www.i-love-dogs.com As you can see there is really hardly anything that you wont find to do with dogs, you can even have dog comics! This is the last example that I will show you: www.unclematty.com This site is generally very entertaining and useful at the same time. As you can see it's very eye catching as it is very colourful, and very nicely presented for the reader. I have tried to give you all the information that you might need/want to know to find out about how to care for your pet dog. As you have seen there are different varieties of dogs and not all enjoy the same treatment or need the same treatment as another dog. So you would need to take your time and explore what your dog needs and you would get the same back from them as they are very sensitive. Hope you find this useful and I have helped you in some way.
