Carreras de galgos

Content

The greyhounds que aún se crían para las carreras pasan la mayor parte de su tiempo en cajas, pens or fenced enclosures without the love of a family. We can eliminate greyhound racing through education, compassion and action.

Greyhounds are disadvantaged even before birth. Thousands are raised annually, many more than those needed for racing, in an attempt to create the fastest dogs. Often cruel methods are used to get rid of unwanted dogs and dogs that survive in the industry are forced to live in overcrowded conditions. These social creatures are forced to spend most of their time alone, confined in cages for 20-23 horas al día y se les niega la oportunidad de caminar o jugar. Many dogs are injured while running races and are slaughtered.

¿Qué hay de malo en las carreras de galgos?

Greyhound racing is cruel and inhumane and no place for them in the modern era.

When they first emerged at end of the XIX century, los partidarios no sabían que cientos de miles de perros sufrirían y morirían.

Since then, our society has evolved and dog racing are not synchronized with the values ​​of society towards animals.

Today, this type of unnecessary and wasteful suffering is rejected as a form of gambling or entertainment. According to government records now available, common injuries in racing include broken necks and backs, dislocations, músculos desgarrados y parálisis. There have also been electrocutions when dogs come into contact with the lure of high-voltage track. Some dogs die on the track while others are euthanized because of the severity of their injuries or simply because of their value decreased as brokers.

¿No se usan galgos para las carreras bien cuidados?

Racing greyhounds endure lives of confinement, They are subject to standard practices that are cruel and suffer injuries and even death. Greyhounds used for racing are kept in cages, just large enough so they can stop or turn around, until 23 horas por día. Shredded paper or carpet remnants are used as bed.

¿Las carreras de galgos contribuyen a la superpoblación de perros?

Yes. From the Platform Not the Chase (NAC) estiman que en España ‘sobran’ anualmente unos 50.000 greyhounds. The racing industry exacerbates an overproduction of dogs, que simplemente desplaza a otros animales sin hogar y desvía los recursos necesarios para abordar otros desafíos del bienestar animal.

A harness for your dog and peaceful Christmas

Westie

Whenever it lurks in December, tengo en mente una recomendación que… por pitos y flautas nunca llego a tiempo para compartirla, pero esta vez decidí ganarle la partida al tiempo y aquí estamos.

As you know, approaching Christmas and with them the Fireworks, or to put it another way, the terror begins for our beloved four-legged friends. Is true that there are dogs or you flinch with the Christmas bombings, pero también es cierto que la gran mayoría lo pasan de pena.

In my personal experience, each time that reaches the half of November, comes the struggle to leave House, the pull of the dog that in spite of being small (is the Westie illustrating this entry) tienes que aplicar una buena cantidad de newtons para desplazarla dos centímetros. Sí…, te pone en ridículo total.

Ever, taking a walk, suddenly it rang a Christmas Fireworks and see the dog shake like a Reed, pulling for all side as crazy and once to fly out and stay with the collar in your hand, fue el momento en que hicimos sin dudar algo que pensábamos… comprar un arnés. Os aseguro que hemos ganado todos…

There are many sites where you can buy it, I did it in the online pet shop Zoobio.es, a place with a good ratio quality / price, In addition to selling of all a little.

The harness in these cases it is ideal, in the first place because you take away the fear of choking your pet, There is no danger! The pull force goes to the trunk, which gives you and the animal when you're afraid.
So, sólo con haberme sentado a compartir esto con toda la gente que pase por aquí, hoy me siento una persona realizada… El año pasado llegué tarde.

Espero que les sea útil mi consejo y que tengáis una feliz navidad y una buena entrada al 2017.
