Tips for dog training and healthy growth

Tips for dog training and healthy growth

As well as providing the best possible support for healthy growth, training and style of upbringing are important issues that every responsible dog owner should consider.

To help you out, we regularly publish detailed articles in our Dogs Guide, where we give you tips on topics such as the correct handling of your puppy and the optimal care of sporting and utility dogs.

Articles about sporting dogs

More and more owners are discovering dog sports as an ideal way to keep their four-legged friend active and occupied in a breed-appropriate way. In addition to classic disciplines such as agility and obedience, a number of new sports for dogs, such as dog diving, have been introduced in recent years.

In our guides, we present detailed accounts of popular dog sports. In addition, we explain how you can optimally support the health and performance of your sporting dog and what special features you need to consider in terms of nutrition.

Information for puppy owners

Puppy owners are in for an exciting time. Your four-legged friend will develop rapidly and learn something new every day. For healthy growth, it is important that you take care of your puppy from an early age according to its needs.

You will find all the information you need in our articles about puppies. We offer advice on what makes good puppy milk, what to do if your little companion suddenly gets diarrhoea, and much more.

Tips for upbringing and behaviour training

As a dog owner, you not only have to make sure that their stomach is full, but also that you are raising your four-legged friend in the right way. Otherwise, various problems could end up affecting your everyday life and your dog may even become a danger to its environment.

We explain how to avoid this in our articles on canine behaviour and upbringing. You will learn, for example, how to deal with anxious or aggressive pooches, and how to get your dog used to staying at home alone.

Articles about working dogs

In the past, almost all dogs were working dogs that helped their owners with certain jobs. Keeping dogs purely as household pets was the exception, and primarily reserved for the nobility and other members of the upper class.

While this changed long ago, there are still a number of working and utility dogs, which have to fulfil very diverse tasks. We explain more about how dogs still support us today and how, for example, guide dogs and therapy dogs really do live up to their reputation as man's best friend.
