The Alaskan Malamute a dog is not for beginners. You have high demands on your attitude, stemming from its destiny as an original sled dog. All the lives of their caregivers, your human family must adjust to your needs. The real MALAMUTE needs the challenge to the sled physically and mentally. Here are several replacement possibilities even without snow. We see a kind of sled on wheels like a tricycle or a training car with four tires. Especially for Malamutes, drag competitions are organized, that are accepted by dogs with great joy and full commitment. Especially the sport of dogsledding has something very special. Driving with the sleigh of the MALAMUTE through a snowy landscape in winter is one of the greatest experiences of all.

It also allows you to experience a deep unity between man-dog and nature in a way that is hardly possible otherwise.. Of course it is also good for your health.

When traveling, it is better to take the MALAMUTE in an aluminum transport box. The Malamute is not a dog for an apartment. A house with a “garden” should be an ideal space for this breed.

The MALAMUTE it is one of the few dog breeds that can be kept as a pack in a kennel without any problem. But this kennel must be well secured. It is not that Malamutes are a danger to the environment, but they are kings of escape and they dig well and with gusto. You can hardly believe, through which little holes these heavy dogs can escape.

To the malamutes they like to sleep outside and snuggle with their head under their tail during the biggest snowstorm. The garden, where the Malamutes, should not be considered an ornamental garden, to put it in a nice way. The malamutes require the whole lifestyle to be in tune with this association.

The Alaskan Malamute can be well trained by an experienced dog owner. One must accept the challenge, even love, of fighting mentally with these primitive and self-assured dogs. They will gladly accept their masters and caregivers, will be loyal to them, but they must have leadership qualities combined with a lot of doggy mind. You have to fully commit to the experience of having a MALAMUTE. Not a dog for people without deep canine experience.

    History

    The Australian Cattle Dog It is a dog originating in australian. In comparison with other races its history is very well documented, because it is a relatively recent.

    At the beginning of the 19th century the livestock industry in Australia had grown to the Plains and on the huge tracts of land. The cattle had become harsh and wild beasts, the Smithfields, until then their dogs of grazing, they already lost control often livestock. These dogs them due to the heat and the distances traveled to move livestock, They also tended to biting and barking lot, knowing pasture sheep and cattle do not, and sometimes with horns, they were injured. This problem existed both in Australia in the United States and while the Americans invented the Cowboys (Cowboys) Australians invented dogs jeans.

    In 1830 a cross of Smithfields took place with Dingoes, the primitive dog that lives in Australia and killed the cattle. This, be regarded as a pest at that time, He went on to be the best contribution to this race. It was believed that more coupled climate dogs would result in, to work and quieter. Were dogs of red hair, silent but that mordían more. This breed was unsuccessful and died.

    In 1840 another farmer with the same concern but different approach, imported a couple of Bearded Collie blue-haired scotland, were dogs that barked much. The offspring of this couple crossed it with the Dingo and got a silent working dog with either blue or red fur.

    Other races introduced to this cross: the Dalmatian in order to ensure that dogs will also work with horses and more faithful and reliable for masters. The Kelpies black or straw color, Australian foresee dogs; to reaffirm their job skills that had been lost by crossing Dalmatians. The influence of Dalmatians I create puppies with white fur at birth and that changes color at three weeks of age from a smooth coat to another gray. Of the Kelpie straw colored markings on legs, chest and head. The end result was an active dog, Compact, with the caution of Dingo, the reliability of a Dalmatian, the skill of a Collie and Kelpie, and unique in the world fur coloration.

    In the early 1890's the Sr. Robert Kaleski became interested in these dogs; as he lover of them and at the same time journalist decided to give to know this race and make it achieved in 1903 the Kennel Club of Wales accepted the first standard of the breed. Strongly believed in the important contribution of blood the Dingo for livestock grazing and eventually introduced dingoes to the crossing to maintain the efficient talonero.

    In November of 1988 It was formed in Australian Cattle Dog Club of America in California. The 1 ° of may of 1980 they petitioned the AKC license (American Kennel Club) and the 1 ° of September of that year was granted.

    In all these years Australians livestock herders have been gaining ground both at work and in the heart of the masters. They are known with many names or nicknames: “Blueys” (azulitos), “Blue Dogs” (blue dogs), “Heelers” (taloneros), “Queenlad heelers” (taloneros Queens), “Blue heelers” (Blue taloneros), “Red heelers” (Red taloneros) and so are erroneously called “Dingoes”.

    Physical characteristics

    The Australian Cattle Dog they are a moderate breed in all respects. They must be balanced, symmetric, robust and compact. Judging this race we must seek a harmonious dog.

    We often hear: “It must be of large head”; This is fine if the body is in line with the head. The standard of the breed does not require a large head but a head according to the body, or of a heavy bone structure, If disagrees with the rest of the dog.

    The Australian Cattle Dog he's a working dog, created strong, Compact, symmetric, with the ability and willingness to carry out its assigned no matter how difficult task will be. Its combination of substance, power, balance sheet and strong muscle condition, leads to great agility, strength and endurance. Both too big and fat dog, as one too small and thin, they would have serious faults. We must see the dog altogether. A large head does not make a good dog, not a very crude bone structure.

    Remember: BALANCE SHEET, SYMMETRY AND MODERATION.

    As its name says, It's primary function and no one matches, It is the control and management of livestock in open or closed extensions. Always alert, extremely intelligent, lookout, brave and reliable, with a total devotion to duty, making it the ideal dog.

    A dog that is gentle in nature, outside of obese condition, will lose points. They are athletes and should always give that appearance.

    In appearance it comes to draw the presentation…

    • The head It is strong and it must be proportional to the body of the dog, to maintain its overall conformation. The wide skull is slightly curved between ears. The mejilla5 are muscular, Neither crude nor prominent, strong jaw. The lips are clean and tight. !.nose is always black. A gluttony for measuring head is from the tip of the nose, passing between the eyes, stop ear tip; through the skull back through the eye to the tip of the nose; They must be measured an equilateral triangle.
    • The eyes: they are oval shaped, medium-sized, Neither prominent nor sunken, they should express State of alert and intelligence, are dark brown in colour.
    • The ears: they should be of moderate size, preferable to small to large, broad base and pointed tip, or round as spoon, Neither plicate of bat. Placed separate head inclined outwards. They must be thick, fleshy and covered with weight on the inside. The teeth would be strong, with equal separations, with grip, bite and scissors, the lower incisors just before close and playing at the incisive superiors.
    • The neck: is very strong, muscular, It allows you to turn the head to the body, It must not be loose or have hanging skin.
    • Front rooms: the forearm should join the shoulder almost in 90%. There is a tendency in the short forearms that does not allow you to the correct length needed. They must be just as the cross to the elbow to elbow on the floor. It must not exceed the width of the chest to the elbows. The creation of exaggeration is a problem in the race.
    • Proportions: The dog must be 10% longer than high, many are unfortunately very short and it subtracts them movement and flexibility.
    • Hindquarters: strong, widths, muscular. The rather long rump to slant, long thighs, wide and well developed. Seen from the back should be parallel and rights, not very close to each other, not very separate.
    • The legs: round, with fingers long and together. Hard bearings, short and strong nails.
    • The tail: placed moderately downward, following the contour of the thigh and rump of length until reaching the hocks. When rest with a slight curve. Movement or shaking the tail should be raised. At no time the queue should be beyond a vertical line that part of the root (or coiled). The tail should be abundant fur.
    • When it is in movement and walking: the action is real, free, flexible to tireless, and the movement of shoulders and fourth front is unison with the force of the rear. The rapid and unexpected movements ability is elementary. When they trotting legs tend to join the ground as the speed is on the rise.
    • Weight and height: The male can be measured in 46 cm to 51 cm., and weigh between 20 and 26 kg. The female can be measured in 43 cm to 48 cm., and weigh between 18 and 23 kg. Here there is almost no problems, because height requirements have been maintained with ease.
    • Fur: The hair is soft, with double layer being the shortest denser.; the hair of the longest layer is closed, each hair is, straight and hard, Why which is waterproof. On the hind legs the coat is long where join the thighs. In the head (even within the ears) up to the front of the legs the coat is short. Around the neck, longer and thicker. A very short or very long hair will be a lack. Curly hair in wavy is evident in the very adult females.
    • Colors of the mantle:
    1. Blue: the color can be blue, graying blue, Blue mottled with or without other brands. Allowed in brands are, black, Blue or straw in the head, preferably symmetrical. Paws straw halfway and extending to the front to the chest and throat, and in the jaws. The Undercoat may be straw in the body where it stands not out to the blue upper layer. The black marks on the body are not desirable.
    2. Red: the color should be very smooth throughout the body, including the bottom layer (either white or cream), with or without red marks on the head. Symmetrical marks are desired. The red marks on the body are permitted but not desired.

    There are two main problems in color. The blue dogs tend to black and the second are the Red dogs without freckles. The latter is more than a problem, and one of the reasons why the reds are less dominant than blue.

    Character and skills

    The Australian Cattle Dog are very versatile and tireless workers who adapt various activities. They have been used as search and rescue dogs, bombs and drugs detectors, service and of course dogs, livestock grazing.

    A Australian Cattle Dog not the ideal dog to lock him in a yard. These dogs require working and living together with people or at least the presence of someone to her around in the absence of their day-to-day work. Isolated in the courtyard of a house in the city the edge to create problems.

    Dr. Harvey, Veterinary Australia, It has two of these dogs and also attends many more as patients. The comments: “The main problem that I see and that surpasses much to others, is the behaviour of these animals, everything is due to boredom and lack of exercise. Since they are very good guardians, people leave them in their backyard taking care of the House, completely ignoring their needs for exercise and mental stimulation”.

    A Australian Cattle Dog can live in an apartment or on a ranch 20 hectares, the problem is not the space; It is the exercise and the time the owner puts into his dog. If no is given a job the dog, the same is going to invent:

  • Garden design: holes, plants cropped or out of place.
  • Interior design: biting furniture tapestry, Chew chairs, dig a way out of the street, spreading garbage around the House, etc.
  • Another very common problem in the cities is the natural tendency with these dogs to protect your family and your home. Even without training, they defend their territory from outsiders, including the milkman, the postman and anyone who is not familiar

    In some rural places of United States commonly used alerts that warn that this place is guarded by Pastor Ganadero Australian, to avoid that strangers come. If there are children running, screaming, any dog grazing naturally want to corner to put them under control; with biting and barking. If their children have guests it is preferable to keep the dog, because it will not allow their masters to be touched, even by game.

    Social coexistence with children must be at an early age, dogs are taloneros by nature to instinctively chase other animals, Yet these dogs are very adaptable and can learn to suppress their natural inclinations part. They are a perfect companion for the family and its children. Once you know the dog and controls, their obedience will surprise your guests.

    Dr. Harvey also believes about coaching: “The Australian Cattle Dog it is very manageable; as a coach and scholar of the behavior, He catalogued it as the most adaptable dog who had worked with. However these dogs do not respond well to the method in which force them.

    After several months of unnecessarily trying to train a female with straps of punishment, correct and other, opt for more motivational methods and the results were excellent. The confidence and enthusiasm can be seen in the position of the tail. A dog with a drop tail, probably this suppressed or bored, a raised tail denotes a dog active and attentive.

    Therefore the coaches that without the knowledge of the race, using traditional methods, such as the drawing with the collar of punishment; they invariably consider them fools, irritable and difficult. Coaches using positive methods, they believe that they are very attentive and willing to learn. Kalesky once said: “A Australian Cattle Dog should we remember a typical Dingo, and this is very important if we want to describe the race.

    Before you choose the puppy we must stop to think for what they want to this dog, as a pet, as a guard dog, dog of grazing, dog for beauty exhibition, etc. Now let's see how they behave all the puppies in the litter. The one we see who fights all his brothers, would serve to guard; the largest and that always sleeps because it is where most ate, It would be fine as a pet or for beauty, the more chiquitos resembling whirlwinds have learned to make an extra effort to obtain their food fought against the elderly, they would be ideal for the job. But there is no written rule the nature of the dogs molded it in a large percentage owners, in this way one very aggressive can be very manso and vice versa.

    Dogo Argentino

    He is a fierce guardian and defender. It is not convenient to stimulate their aggressiveness.

    History

    The Dogo Argentino (Argentine Dogo) is a breed of dog, created by the Argentine physician Antonio Nores Martinez, looking for an animal suitable for the hunting of common species in Argentina, such as wild boar, peccaries and red foxes. Courage, courage and nobility are qualities that enhance the maximum in this race.

    The Dogo Argentino It is the only living Argentine dog breed (see footnote two extinct races), defined by its creator, Dr. Antonio Nores Martinez, as “the best dog among all dogs of prey and more prey among all dogs in the world”.

    In the Decade of 1920, Antonio Nores Martinez (aided by his brother Agustín, his father Antonio and uncles) He decided to create a race of dam to collect the best qualities of the “Cordoba Fighting Dog“, but with superior physical strength and dimensions. In addition, It was proposed to bring a dog to have skills to hunt in Pack, particularly of wild boars, but he was able to beat or stop him only to the dam in combat until the arrival of his master or the rest of the Pack.

    Antonio used as the basis for the “Cordoba Fighting Dog“, a mixture of races introduced in the Argentina by English residents, Bull Terrier and Bulldog, with races that had brought the Spaniards, Spanish Alaunt and Spanish Mastiff. At these crossing, He was unbeaten in the fights of dogs, Antonio added blood lines Bull Terrier and Pyrenean Mastiff. Like this, in the thirteenth generation, Antonio was given account that had created a “war machine” perfect, an invincible battle dog. The white dogs of Antonio became famous as any other dog could overcome them rings.

    It thus creates the Araucana family. Then Antonio proposed legalizing the dog that had been created, because the fighting, Despite being his passion, they were prohibited throughout the world. On the other hand, He was fascinated by the idea of directly killing a dog to lift, continue and captured the dam. The Araucana family not served for hunting because they were very aggressive, very heavy in relation to its height and lack of sense of smell. Then Antonio introduced blood Pointer, creating the Guaraní family. These Doges maintained the fighting spirit of the Araucana family, but they were more resistant to pursue prey, they had a better sense of smell and could be that they did not battle.

    They spent several years crossing, selections and adequate functional gymnastics until towards the end of the Decade of 1940, Antonio managed to consolidate the current Argentine dogo, recognized as the most excellent hunting dog.

    In 1946 It organized a public match for the presentation of the race between Añá, an extraordinary specimen of Dogo Argentino and a breeding boar of 5 years. It was a tough race for Aña, the fight came out victorious, then surrendered it in forty minutes, finishing the fight in perfect physical condition. The battle was filmed and woke up in the cinófilos a great admiration for the Doge (“The Dogo Argentino“, by Paolo Vianini, Vecchi publishing, 2006.).

    In 1947 Augustine hosted a match in the Spanish Club of Morón between Chinese, a Dogo Argentino and a Creole Black Bull, great fighter. After a while of combat, that it caused him to Chinese femur fracture, He managed to turn the nose of the bull, which, in a few minutes, He could not resist more pain and knelt. Chinese not dropped. The end was really a party to the Spanish public. Francisco, another brother of Antonio, He entered the arena and spoke to Chinese who burst into their prey and continued limping (“The Dogo Argentino“, by Paolo Vianini, Vecchi publishing, 2006.).

    Augustine was a great diffuser of the race, finally achieving its recognition as such (see letter from Dr. Agustín Nores Martínez to the FCA).

    What is Diabetes Mellitus??

    Diabetes is defined as a disorder in the metabolism of the hydrates of carbon, fats and proteins caused by a deficiency of insulin, It can be absolute or relative.

    Insulin is a hormone secreted in the beta cells of the pancreas, whose production allows to control blood sugar (blood glucose levels). Insulin deficiency causes a deterioration in the capacity of tissues to use nutrients, that translates into an increase of glucose in blood (Hyperglycemia).

    Diabetes is classified according to the disease in humans, namely, as type I and type II.

    The type I It is characterized by the destruction of beta cells, What determines the loss progressive and complete end of insulin secretion. Dogs suffering from type I Diabetes Mellitus may have a sudden onset of symptoms due to the rapid loss of the ability to produce insulin. These cases require insulinización from the time of diagnosis and are called diabetics 1,811 (DMID).

    Other dogs may have a gradual loss of insulin secretion, that their beta cells will be destroyed with slow. These animals may have an initial period in which Hyperglycemia is mild or easy control, in which case it's diabetic insulinoindependientes (DMIID), Although in the long term these dogs also need her.

    Diabetes Mellitus type II It is a little more difficult to understand and is characterized by what we call "insulin resistance" and "dysfunctional" beta cells. The secretion of insulin by these cells will be high, low or normal, but not enough to overcome the resistance to it in the peripheral tissues.

    It´s, to explain it in a graphic way, It is as if peripheral tissues do not obey the orders of the insulin or were not able to do what send it.

    In terms of metabolism or synthesis of glucose, These dogs may have DMID or DMIID, namely, need or not insulin according to the magnitude of the insulinorresistencia and functional status of the beta in their ability to produce cells and secrete the hormone in low quantities, normal or high.

    Dogs also recognizes a secondary diabetes, produced by a carbohydrate intolerance (glucose) due to the presence of a disease or a drug treatment that it antagonizes or counteracts the effects of insulin and can lead to the exhaustion of the beta cells of the pancreas with the appearance of diabetes insulinodependiente.

    The owners of diabetic dogs should be aware that the routine in the treatment with insulin and food has to be respected. Two fixed-dose of insulin a day associated with a food palatable to always provide the same source and the same amount of starch, always run at the same time it can reduce the risk of hypoglycemia in diabetic dogs.
