I am a nature lover.

A general term used for sled dogs is husky. So, it might look similar, but it is a different animal from the wolf. In the olden days, people usually use huskies as sled dogs, especially in the northern areas, but they are even used as a pet nowadays. It is originally referred to as "Eskie," but its dubious manner made it be called husky. The famous breeds of huskies are the Alaskan and Siberian husky breed. Conversely, the wolf is the largest animal of the canine family.

This genus escaped the Ice Age, and their existence can be traced back to about three hundred thousand years ago. Scientists claim that wolves and dogs have similar ancestry. In its ecological system, the wolf is the prime predator, but this is not applicable to the husky. Huskies cannot survive hot temperatures; they only have thick furs on them that protect them against cold. The wolves, on the other hand, can survive several climatic conditions, ranging from temperate zones to tundra, grasslands, mountains, and taiga.

It’s up to you entirely. Neutering a dog is a sensitive issue and PETA will probably advise you against it. What they forget is that dogs are in constant contact with humans and live among us in our neighborhoods. As someone who owns dogs, the pros of neutering outweigh its cons, almost every time.

The major advantage of neutering is that neutered dogs are calmer. It's simply because of the drop in the testerone level of the dogs. The aggressive nature of dogs is decreased after neutering and if your dog is protective, it can help a lot. Breeds like pugs, newfoundlands and labradors can still be excused since they’re inherently calm. If you have a mastiff, pitbull or daschund, I would recommend neutering. Dogs that haven’t been neutered are not a threat to you, but to the people and dogs around you.

Neutering also makes dogs less prone to certain diseases and contributes to the overall health of your dog. It also helps keep your dog calm during heat and helps you keep your sanity. The major con of neutering is that dogs are more likely to get fat after neutering so make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise. Good Luck!

Dogs eat a variety of foods. However, domesticated dogs primarily eat dog food. There are many types of dog food out there. Most will have a recommendation for the type of size and breed of dog that you have.

Dogs are naturally omnivores, meaning that they eat both meat and plants. Most commercial dog foods consist of some form of meat (usually chicken, fish, beef, or a combination), grains (rice, barley, wheat, or a combination), and vegetables (carrots, corn, peas, or a combination).

Some dog owners feed their dogs once a day. Others do it per meal. Some owners leave food out for their dog all the time, and the dog simply eats when they are hungry. This is a personal preference. If you have questions about what is the best way to feed your dog, you can always ask your veterinarian.

Unadulterated dingoes can never move toward becoming "domesticated" while they stay unadulterated. They are hereditarily bolted into their crudeness.

Swedish Vallhund, also well-known as Wolf-Corgis, happens to be one of the rarest breeds in the world. The national dog breed of Sweden is theorized to have been brought to England and is considered the ancestor of Pembroke Welsh Corgis. Vallhunds are good dogs all around and are similar to floofers (but with smaller feet). They love cows and are an excellent herding dog.

The breed is rare because it nearly went extinct in the country during the 1940’s due to neglect and no recognition, but were saved by two breeders with four puppies left. The breed was recognized by Swedish authorities in 1943 and given this name. The Swedish Vallhund’s fortunes became better in the modern times and are now becoming more and more common in households and herding farms. Although they are found everywhere in Sweden, importing this dog in other countries is difficult due to long waiting lists.

Wiener dogs or simply dachshunds, are small dogs and hence we don’t take their aggression seriously, but they are even more aggressive than the largest dogs. There are various reasons for this and I have listed all of them only for you.

  • Careless Training: The most important reason for their aggressiveness is their inefficient training. Small dogs are thought to be small and hence aren’t given proper training by their owners who underestimate their dog’s violent side. An untrained and uneducated child is more likely to be violent. Small dogs are mostly stay-at-home dogs and their opportunities to meet others is rare which makes them antisocial and untrustworthy towards others. Big dogs like mastiffs, on the other hand, are trained more sincerely by their owners and socialize every day, hence exhibit less violence. Every dog needs to socialize with humans and other dogs early in life to be calm around them.

  • Breed Origin: The name ‘dachshund’ literally translates to ‘badger hunter’ and these dogs were specially bred to hunt badgers in holes giving them their signature long body and sharp claws on the front legs. Badgers are violent animals which makes these dogs an equal enemy to them. Dachshunds have also been used to hunt boars in the past.

  • Leadership complex: Dachshunds tend to accept you as the dominant leader but you need to maintain your position, otherwise you will lose. If they feel you are weak, they will gladly take your place. Dachshunds happen to be one of the rare breeds that bite their human if angry. Hence you need to control your dog with an iron hand if you want their love, loyalty and face licks.

If you still feel they are pushover dogs, here’s a dachshund who’s friends with a lion

When trying to get your aggressive dog to quiet down, first make sure NOT to yell at them. When you yell at your dog to be quiet it sounds like you are barking along with them, so they will continue to bark. Being consistent in your training is key, if you really want to teach your aggressive dog to be more quiet, everyone in your dog's life must work with him to stop barking as well. If you are serious, you can not allow your dog to get away with inappropropriate behavior.

Removing what motivates your dog to bark is key to teaching them to be quiet. If seeing cars through the living room windows makes your dog bark, close the windows. Making sure your dog gets enough exercise because it will make him calm as well. Dogs who don't get enough exercise will bark more than those who do.
