Why Do Dogs Hate Baths? While it's true that not every dog likes to play in water, this doesn't exactly explain why your dog hates baths. Even breeds that love water, such as Labrador retrievers, generally avoid bathing. So if water isn't the problem, why do dogs hate baths? There are a few factors that could explain why your dog hates going near the tub or sink. Remembering Bad Associations According to the PDSA, dogs, like us, learn to associate a particular situation with a feeling of fear or anxiety. A bad bath-related experience, such as getting burned by hot water, slipping in the tub, getting water up his nose, or having his eyes burnt by shampoo, can traumatize your dog and cause him to learn to fear bathing. Even troublesome experiences with other grooming procedures, such as cutting their nails too short or cleaning their ears, can create negative associations with bathing if they coincide with bathing. Loss of Control When your dog swims or splashes around in a puddle, he sees it as a fun activity to participate in. On the other hand, bathing is an activity that is often forced on dogs and involves touching their bodies and making them do movements that they do not like. This loss of choice and control over what happens to them can be extremely distressing for a dog. Strangeness Dogs bathing for the first time or not bathing very often may be frightened by the unfamiliar experience of getting into a tub full of water and getting soaked in shampoo. This may create negative associations that cause them to be afraid when they take a bath in the future. Bath Time Makes You Feel Stressful Dogs aren't the only ones who hate bath time sometimes. Dogs often take emotional cues from their owners. According to PSA, the more anxious you appear, the more anxious your dog will become. Yelling at your dog, being harsh, or rushing at bath time teaches your dog that the bath is something to be afraid of. Even if you are gentle with your dog, he may sense your tension, which may cause him to be very afraid of bathing in the future.

Coat Care in Dogs How should dog hair be cared for? Regular combing is beneficial for all dogs, regardless of their coat structure or breed. With regular combing, weakened hair and dead skin cells are removed. This ensures that the feathers are clean and dust-free. Additionally, the skin's natural oil spreads throughout the hair shaft. Daily combing of dogs, especially those with long, soft and curly fur, prevents their fur from becoming tangled and matted. The hair of long-haired dogs gets tangled very easily, especially around the ears, under the arms and on the back of the feet. Scanning these areas in detail will prevent confusion. It is possible for short-haired dogs to be combed less frequently. However, daily combing of short-haired dogs significantly reduces the amount of shedding and fur that will accumulate in the house. However, dogs also lick to regulate their fur, although not as much as cats. When combed regularly, the amount of hair that dogs swallow while licking is reduced. Regardless of the hair type, you need to make sure that there is no tangle or tangle in the armpits, groin area and behind the ears. Particularly in dogs that go outside regularly, foreign substances such as twigs, thorns or stones mixed in with this fur tangle can cause irritation. How Often Should You Bathe Dogs? It may be necessary to bathe dogs at regular intervals. Dogs need to be bathed, especially when their fur becomes extremely dirty or starts to smell bad. It is generally recommended to bathe breeds that do not shed and have no health problems every 6 - 8 weeks. For dogs with excessive hair, washing them more frequently during periods when they shed excessively, such as spring and autumn, will not only keep them clean but also comfortable. Dogs' bathing needs vary depending on their age, daily life, coat texture and health status. When potty training puppies have an accident, you need to bathe them immediately. Dogs that like to run in puddles or jump into water need a bath after playing in the mud. However, some dogs may have various allergies. Veterinarians may recommend frequent bathing as part of allergy treatment. Dogs with allergies may need daily bathing until the problem is under control or completely healed. Regardless of the reason for bathing, if you bathe your dog regularly and use products that are not suitable for dog skin, some skin problems may occur. In such cases, you need to ask your veterinarian for advice on a special shampoo, moisturizer or dry shampoo. When bathing dogs, they should be washed with shampoos that have a pH balance appropriate to their skin.

How Should I Feed My Dog? Nutrition is a physiological need. Like all living things, dogs need external food to survive. This is a vital necessity for them to continue their daily lives. The more adequate and balanced the nutrients they consume, the healthier they will continue their lives. A dog's nutrition varies depending on general and special conditions such as size, gender, age, energy level, climate, pregnancy and disease. Therefore, what we wrote contains general information. Your veterinarian will determine your healthiest diet. How Should I Feed My Puppy? First 4-6 weeks: They should be fed with breast milk. After 4 weeks: Dry food can be given by soaking it with milk (only for the first 2-3 months), water, food broths and broth. This process will attract the puppy's attention by making the food more palatable and will make it easier for him to chew and eat. It also minimizes possible stomach discomfort. However, since there will be a direct transition from milk to formula, constipation problems may occur. Consult your veterinarian about your food choice. You can ask your veterinarian to guide you on all matters such as food grain size, nutritional values, and which food to choose according to the size of your dog's breed. After 6 weeks: Food should be given without wetting. Your puppy's chewing habit has developed well. He can eat dry food easily. 4-6 months: Your puppy's teething period is between 4-6 months. All their teeth will fall out by 6 months. During this period, re-wetting the food and giving it will make him more comfortable. Things to Know about Puppy Nutrition: *It has been determined that the majority of dogs are allergic to milk. Therefore, milk should be avoided after the first 2-3 months. *They need more food as they spend more energy when they are young and the amount of nutrients required for their development is higher. During this period, you should consume easily digestible foods and make sure that the food is sufficient in terms of protein and calcium.

Carrot Dog Cookies An easy cookie recipe for your dog for those who are bored of ready-made treats. 20 minutes to prepare, 25 minutes to cook. The result is perfect! "Let me prepare a reward biscuit for my dog, but are carrots beneficial or harmful for my dog or how should I feed them?" I have good news for you: Carrots are one of the foods that we can share with our cute friends and that will not cause any problems for them to taste and eat! Carrots are both a rich source of fiber and a source of vitamin A. Some elements found in carrots ensure that dogs' teeth remain white and protected. In addition, since it is a hard vegetable, it prevents the formation of tooth tartar. Finally, carrots are an important food for skin and coat health. In addition to vitamin A, it also contains plenty of vitamin C. It has high nutritional value. However, it is quite low in calories. So, in short, carrots are really a very healthy vegetable and there is no harm in dogs eating carrots. Even though we argue that it is healthy, it should be given and consumed in a balanced way. Since it contains sugar, it will not be healthy if given in excess. Carrots given once or twice a week will not endanger your dog's health. (Veterinarian Mehmet Koç) Since carrots will be a natural reward for our little friends, let's start preparing "#carrotdogcookies", shall we? Materials: Half an apple (I added it spontaneously while preparing my ingredients, thinking it would go well.) 1 carrot 1 teaspoon baking powder 1.5 cups of whole wheat flour 2 tablespoons of olive oil 1 egg Fabrication: Peel the apple, remove the core and grate it. Peel the carrot and grate it. Beat the egg, mix all the ingredients, knead until it becomes a dough and give it the shape you want. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes. You can store it in an airtight jar for 2 weeks or in the refrigerator for longer.

Dealing with dog anxiety: tips for a calmer, happier pup Often known as man's best friend, dogs are sensitive creatures that can experience anxiety just like us! Whether it's separation anxiety, noise phobias, or general irritability, recognizing and addressing our pet's anxiety is important for their well-being and both of your peace of mind. Understanding if your dog is anxious Before we dive into some helpful tips for relieving dog anxiety, it's important to understand the common causes and symptoms. While there are causes that we can actively address, such as separation from their owners or being in unfamiliar environments, sudden triggers that we have no control over, such as thunderstorms, fireworks, and loud sounds, can also be listed among the causes of anxiety. Dogs can display anxiety through behaviors such as excessive barking, panting, trembling, self-harming with chewing, and even aggression. At the end of the day, you know your pup best. Be careful and be their protector! TIPS FOR MANAGING DOG ANXIETY Establish a routine: Dogs thrive on routine and predictability. Creating a consistent daily schedule for feeding, walks, and playtime can provide a sense of stability by reducing anxiety levels. Provide physical and mental stimulation: Regular exercise is vital for a dog's physical and mental health. Involve your puppy in activities like walks, interactive toys, or obedience training to keep their minds busy and reduce stress. Create a safe space: Designate a quiet, comfortable area in your home where your dog can retreat when feeling anxious. Whether it's a cozy corner with a bed or a crate lined with blankets, having a safe space can give your pup a sense of security. Gradual desensitization: Desensitization techniques can be effective for dogs that have specific phobias or anxieties and are afraid of sudden triggers, such as thunderstorms or car rides. With positive reinforcement, slowly expose your dog to the trigger in a controlled environment and gradually increase exposure over time. Relaxing techniques: To help him cope with stressful situations, try distracting him by giving him the commands he is most likely to follow and reward him when they are carried out correctly. Additionally, spending quality time together in a quiet environment can encourage bonding and reduce anxiety. Avoid punishment: Punishment is not an effective way to relieve dog anxiety and can make the problem worse. Instead, focus on positive reinforcement techniques by rewarding calm behavior with treats, praise, or play time. Pay attention to nutrition: Although there is no direct cause, nutritional problems such as sudden change in diet, nutritional deficiencies, allergies can aggravate symptoms. Gut health can affect a dog's mood and behavior. A happy, healthy gut can contribute to a happier, calmer dog. On the other hand, an upset gut can lead to symptoms such as anxiety or stress.

Dogs' First Meeting with Water You are lucky if your dog enjoys the water for the first time and gets into the water without any difficulty. Some dogs, especially puppies, may be frightened when they first meet water. Cold water makes dogs even more reluctant. Therefore, when you want to take your dog into the sea or pool, make sure the water is warm. First experience is always very important. If your dog becomes too fearful or too cold, he may not want to go into the water again. If you are going to introduce your dog to water and the sea for the first time, spend some time on the beach you go to. Take a dog toy with you and throw the toy towards the water's edge from time to time. At first, just let the dog's feet get wet. If your dog enjoys this game, slowly throw the toy further into the water. When the dog's legs are fully in the water, enter the water and motivate him to swim towards you. Do not keep this training, which we will call your first swimming lesson, too long. If you detect reluctance in your dog, do not force it too much and try again after a few days. If you wish, during your dog's first swimming experience, for example in the pool, you can hold him in your arms and put him in the water. Do not throw the dog directly into the water. If he gets scared once, he won't want to enter again.

The Right Time to Bath Your Puppy Getting dirty and needing a bath is an essential part of puppies' nature. Therefore, it is critically important to learn about when puppies can bathe and the frequency of puppy bathing. While some breeds need bathing more frequently than others, bathing frequency should be kept as infrequent as possible for some breeds. It is not a good approach to bathe puppies frequently unless they get too dirty or too scared. Bathing most puppies 1 to 4 times per year is considered the ideal frequency. It is recommended that the first bath of puppies be given after their vaccinations are completed. Following the vaccination schedule also means that the puppy can meet the appropriate conditions for growth and bathing. Puppies cannot regulate their body temperature at an early age. They may get cold and experience bath stress because they are still very young. When stress and coldness combine, the problems that dogs may experience may increase, and future anxiety and pneumonia may occur. Therefore, if we need to give a general time period, it can be stated that the puppy should be older than 8 weeks for bathing. Although 8-week-old puppies are much stronger than the period they left behind, the need to pay attention to certain factors after bathing does not change. After bathing your puppy, their fur should be dried thoroughly and they should not be taken outside until their fur is dry.

This is a short movie that I put together starting from when we first brought our white Shih Tzu puppy home. All my dogs are female and you get to watch how my older dogs react to the puppy at first. She's bullied by them at first. The puppy is a really fast learner and learns how to climb stairs within a couple weeks! Even though she's small, she's really feisty and tries to stand up for herself while the other dogs beat her up, pick on her, knock her down, and even steal her dog toys.
