Cannabidiol (CBD) is a substance extracted from the hemp plant that has been shown to be an effective treatment for many ailments. It’s also beginning to gain popularity in the field of veterinary medicine. CBD has actually been used to treat animals for decades, but recently companies like Austin and Kat are brining this treatment into the mainstream light.

As expected, CBD is a very controversial treatment option in the human and animal medical fields. Because this is a relatively new method of treatment, there is not a lot of research on the subject. This is what keeps many veterinarians from condoning the use of CBD to treat veterinary patients.

Austin and KatCannabidiol has many benefits for pets. As this treatment is still relatively new, there are many studies being done on the effects of CBD on health conditions such as anxiety, arthritis and cancer in dogs. So far, the research looks very positive and extremely promising.

It’s definitely a topic that you’ll need to research on your own, and you should speak with your veterinarian before including anything new in your dog’s diet. If your vet isn’t open to the idea, perhaps a chat with your local holistic veterinarian may help. If all else fails, there are numerous holistic vets willing to consult with pet owners online or over the phone.

If you decide that you’d like to try cannabidiol infused treats to help your pet, Austin and Kat dog treats are a great choice! Our dogs love them, and they are 100% safe.

Austin and Kat CBD Dog Treats & CBD Oil for Pets

Austin and KatCBD Oil for Dogs

Every CBD oil and dog treats containing this oil are different. There are different grades of CBD oil and each brand of treat uses their own oil in different quantities. For this reason, it’s important that you do some research on CBD oil for dogs before feeding these types of treats to your dog.

For more information on cannabis for pets, check out these Top Dog Tips resources:

I’ve also had the opportunity to chat with Kat of Austin and Kat for my podcast, Theory of Pets. You can listen to Kat’s episode here to learn about the benefits of CBD oil for pets and how to choose safe CBD treats and oil for your pooch.

Austin and Kat CBD Dog Treats

These treats from Austin and Kat are 100% natural. There are no artificial colors, preservatives or flavors used in the making of these dog treats. They are also free of bulking agents, gluten, dairy and eggs.

Austin and KatAustin and Kat dog treats are vegan and handmade in the USA.

The treats are infused with naturally occurring CBD oil from the seed and stalk of the hemp plant. They are also made with some canine superfoods including coconut oil, oats, apples, peanut butter, cinnamon and turmeric.

Full List of Ingredients: Oat Flour, Tapioca Flour, White Rice Flour, CBD Extract (Hemp derived from seed and stalk), Oats, Peanut Butter, Apples, Coconut Oil, Almond Meal, Xanthan Gum, Turmeric and Cinnamon.

The most important thing to note about these (and other) CBD containing dog treats from Austin and Kat are that they are 100% non-psychoactive. CBD oil harnesses the medicinal powers of the plant without the THC, which is what causes the psychoactive effects in humans.

You can purchase these treats in two sizes on the company’s website:

  • 2 mg. bags contain 40 biscuits for small dogs weighing less than 30 pounds
  • 5 mg. bags contain 30 biscuits for large dogs weighing more than 30 pounds

The cost of the bags are $29.95 and $39.95 respectively. If you do the math, that’s about $0.75 per treat for the smaller biscuits and $1.33 per treat for the larger biscuits. Obviously that’s quite pricey for dog treats, but you also have to remember that these offer medicinal properties that other treats do not.

Austin and Kat CBD Hemp Oil

Austin and KatAustin and Kat also makes a CBD Hemp Oil that is safe for dogs and cats (and humans, too!). This oil is made with wild Alaskan salmon oil and hemp seed oil.

You administer it with the included calibrated dropper, which I demonstrate in my video review above. This oil is very high in Omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids, which are beneficial for skin and coat, brain and even heart health!

As you can see in my video review, our dogs have no problem licking this oil right from the dropper. However, if your dog won’t allow you to administer it under his tongue, you can also apply it to food or treats.

Austin and KatThe Austin and Kat company claim that your dog will see relief within 15-20 minutes of administering the oil. I have used it to help with our Labrador’s noise aversion, and I do agree that I can begin seeing her calm down within about 20 minutes of administering the oil.

We’ve also used it to help treat arthritis pain in my mother’s Labrador (Beau), and it has been very effective. We use both the oil and treats daily to help with the pain. While I cannot say that the pain is 100% gone, Beau is noticeably more comfortable than he was before we added CBD to his diet.

Austin and Kat CBD Hemp Oil is available in two dosage sizes:

  • 100 mg oil for dogs and cats
  • 300 mg oil for dogs ONLY

Both dosage sizes come in a 1-ounce bottle. The smaller dosage is available for $29.95, and the larger bottle can be purchased for $64.95. While that may sound quite expensive, it’s comparable to other high quality CBD oil products. You also need to keep in mind that you’ll only be administering a few drops at a time, so the small bottle will last quite a while.

Abused French Bulldog from Puppy Mill Shows the True Meaning of Resilience

Need a way to keep your dog clean then please keep reading below as they have some great tips and tricks to keeping your dog clean and looking smart . 

Of course if you need a professional dog groomer in Sydney then you can reach out and contact us as well and we will put you in touch with a mobile dog wash or grooming service

Raised but abused in a puppy mill, Phoenix is slowly learning how to live a good life as a housebroken family pet.

Phoenix, the French Bulldog, had a hard life for at least three years before she learned that dogs can be loved and cared for. She grew up in a puppy mill in California and was used and abused for breeding. She never got to experience how to live like a dog.

But when Phoenix could no longer have babies, the puppy mill operators dumped her and another dog late in the night at a shelter in Wildomar. The breeders left the pups to suffer. Unfortunately, the other dog did not make it when the shelter workers found them in the morning.

In Pain and Distressed
Second Chance Dog Rescue

In Pain and Distressed

Phoenix was immediately rushed to the veterinarian to get a much-needed assessment and treatment. She was a wreck with patches and scabs on her skin, welts on her toes, untrimmed nails, horrible smell and a sad look on her face. Obviously, the French Bulldog was in clear distress both from the physical pain ailing her and the uncertainty of her new environment.

The shelter turned over the dog to the Second Chance Dog Rescue and asked that Phoenix is fostered within 24 hours. Fortunately, the group had two willing foster parents who were ready to welcome Phoenix and help her recover and heal from her past traumatic life.

After a medical assessment, Phoenix tested negative for mange and scabies but the veterinarian figured out that she could be suffering from allergies. So, the French Bulldog was administered antihistamines, steroids, and antibiotics, aside from getting a medical bath and other treatments for her inflamed skin.

A Shocking Discovery

Fortunately, Phoenix’s healing has progressed and with better health, the veterinarians can go ahead and spay her. But when it was time to finally operate on her, the vets were shocked to find out that the puppy mill breeders also did not apply care and proper procedure when Phoenix had a Caesarean.

A Shocking Discovery
Second Chance Dog Rescue

The last time Phoenix gave birth, her uterus was incorrectly stapled shut. It’s a wonder how the dog survived this ordeal. She probably had to deal with an infection and complications of her botched surgery.

Now that the veterinarians have done their part to fix Phoenix, she was expected to fully recover at the foster home.

Patience and Love from her Foster Mom

Phoenix’s foster mom patiently taught and train her to become an obedient family pet. She’s been learning basic commands and has been finally discovering how to be a dog and not a puppy mill breeding machine, as Megan Knight of the Second Chance Dog Rescue said.

It’s been close to four months since Phoenix was dumped at the shelter but she has adjusted to her new life as a housebroken pet. She lives and plays with an Italian greyhound in her foster home. She gets her daily walks and socializes with other people and dogs she meets.

Patience and Love from her Foster Mom
Second Chance Dog Rescue

Phoenix has blossomed into a sweet and friendly pup that her foster mom is sure she’s ready for adoption. According to Megan, however, the French Bulldog is a delight to be around and loves to snuggle with her humans. Her foster family has fallen in love with her and will likely take her in permanently.

Puppy Mill Abuse

According to PETA and their representatives whom we’ve recently had on a podcast, female dogs in puppy mills are bred twice a year and if these animals can no longer bear a litter, they are either killed or abandoned. The dog moms are also not given a proper diet, exercise and veterinary care hence they end up malnourished and unexposed to the life around them.

Puppy Mill Abuse
Second Chance Dog Rescue

The pups of these dog moms are also separated too early to be sold to brokers who also sell the animals to pet stores. This is why animal advocates are firm on their stand to never buy puppies in pet stores.

13 Commonly Banned Dog Breeds

Need a way to keep your dog clean then please keep reading below as they have some great tips and tricks to keeping your dog clean and looking smart . 

Of course if you need a professional dog groomer in Sydney then you can reach out and contact us as well and we will put you in touch with a mobile dog wash or grooming service

Some countries and U.S. states pass breed discrimination laws now, banning owners from adopting certain breeds. The way these laws work can be complicated. Usually the laws will vary from county to county, or city to city. While one county or township will ban four breeds, the next one over may only ban one. Many areas have yet to ban any breeds at all. Here are the most commonly banned dog breeds and how to prevent aggressive behavior in any dog.

Top Banned Dog BreedsBefore you get a dog with the reputation of being aggressive or a “guard” dog, it is best to check with your local government entities so you don’t have any issues with the dog after adopting. And even if the dog breed isn’t banned by the state, some can be banned by apartment complexes, rental property owners, home owners associations and home insurance companies.

Even if you can legally keep your new pet, you may be required to pay additional fees or deposits, and pay more for certain breeds.

The government has been unjustly stereotyping and banning many dog breeds, some of which are often labeled as dangerous. But these banned dog breeds can be just as friendly, playful, loving, and caring as any other dog.

According to research, a dog’s upbringing will have much to do with what the dog’s personality is, particularly when it comes to dog aggression. Dog’s genetics will also play a part, and working with a professional dog trainer is often highly recommended if you’re looking to adopt any of these banned dog breeds.

Raising Banned Dog Breeds
(and how to prevent aggressive behavior)

Banned Dog Breeds

Before we talk about the 13 most commonly banned dog breeds, lets discuss some tips for preventing aggression in the first place. As I mentioned, if your dog shows any signs of aggression or is a breed that is known for being aggressive, it’s crucial that you work with a trained professional.

You may have lots of experience with dogs, but when it comes to an aggressive dog you should not be taking any chances. Working with a dog like this on your own could lead to a major problem. Seek the help of a professional dog trainer that specializes in working with your particular breed or aggressive breeds in general.

Tips to Prevent Aggression in Dogs

1. Socialization Training

This training starts from birth, so make sure you get your puppy from a reputable breeder. The important thing to remember is to go slow and stay positive. Only move up in difficulty when your pet does well with the lower rungs of the ladder.

Tips to Prevent Aggressiveness in DogsWhen you do these exercises, stay in a good mood and carry lots of treats for your fur-baby. Be prepared to offer lots of love and praise. Don’t forget, this is an ongoing process for at least a year, so your pooch won’t take back steps. Even if you get your dog later in its life, these same steps will apply:

  • Introduce your pooch to new people
  • Introduce your pup to other animals
  • Take your dog for walks around the neighborhood
  • Make sure your canine is brought to different areas of town to see new sights, new people, and new animals

2. Obedience Training

This type of training also starts as soon as your new dog comes home. The key is to be consistent. If you are not going to want your pet jumping on you, then you must never allow it to jump on you.

Don’t send mixed signals by petting it when it jumps today and fussing when it jumps on you tomorrow. More importantly, don’t let your dog jump on you if you don’t want it to jump on your guests and people on the street.

How your dog treats you is how it will treat others. Here is a quick look at the three most popular forms of dog training:

Reward Based Training involves giving praise and treats for every good behavior and ignoring your dog completely during bad behavior. Your pet runs to greet you at the door calmly and waits to be acknowledged – this gets a treat and praise. Your dog runs to greet you and is jumping on you, and getting under your feet – this gets ignored – don’t make eye contact and keep walking right past.

Punishment Based Training is when you yell or spank your dog when he does something bad. Your pooch had a potty accident so you yell, shove their nose in it, and roughly toss them outside. This is the way lots of people train, but it isn’t effective. If fact, this method of training just creates a fearful animal, and fearful animals bite.

Permission Based Training has owner awareness at its core. The dog does not leave or enter the room, move forward while on the leash, get out of the car, potty, and many other things without looking to the owner for permission to do so. This type of training is very effective at keeping canine family members calm and controlled.

3. Pack Leader Training

Pack Leader Dog TrainingRecommended for ALL banned dog breeds on this list, you will need to check out pack leader training if you plan on owning one of the most commonly banned dog breeds. This type of training is where you are the leader.

Your dog won’t be territorial and aggressive because it is your territory, your food, your food bowls, your pack, etc. They can only use it when they are in a calm and submissive state. This type of dog training would be used in conjunction with dog obedience and socialization training.

When completing pack leader training, there are 7 steps you’ll need to complete:

1. Make your dog work for his food. Take him for a walk before meal time. Never feed your dog until he is calm and docile. Make him sit and wait. When the time is right, put the food down.

2. Never let your dog jump on you. You are the Alpha! Make your dog, from puppyhood, treat you with respect. If you don’t want them doing it in adulthood, or to other people, they can’t do it to you as a puppy either.

3. Always look your dog in the eye. It is what canines do. If you want to be in the position of authority, look them in the eye and make them look away first.

4. Your personal space is the Alpha space. With Pack Leader Training, the dog cannot be allowed in your bed or on the furniture. That is your space.

5. No rough play. You are the leader, not to be toyed with. This doesn’t mean that you can’t play with your fur-baby. It means have organized, respectful play.

6. If you want respect, give it. Just because you are the Alpha, doesn’t mean you disrespect your animal. Don’t shove its nose in poop, don’t beat it, and don’t holler and yell. Always display the calm, strong, level-headed behavior you want your dog to show.

7. Most importantly, be consistent. If your pooch has to lie down and calmly wait for food today, then they have to do it every day. Inconsistency and lax rules will not place you in a position of authority.

Banned Dog Breeds

13 Commonly Banned Dog Breeds

As mentioned in the beginning of this article, some cities or counties may ban certain dog breeds that they deem to be aggressive in nature. Even if your city or county has no breed-specific legislation, your apartment building, home owners association or insurance company may have a list of banned dog breeds that you’ll need to be aware of.

Even though a few dog breeds may be statistically more dangerous due to prevalence of bites from that breed, many of these banned dog breeds are simply stereotyped and labeled as dangerous with little to no evidence to back up those dangers. Nevertheless, here are some of the most commonly banned dog breeds:

1. Doberman Pinscher

Pictured above, this breed is beautiful a sleek. They grow to a large size, but are still incredibly graceful. This brave, loyal dog is very affectionate with his family. He makes a great watch dog. Energetic and playful, these dogs need to be exercised regularly to keep from being aggressive or destructive. While the breed is banned in some places, when trained and socialized properly, these pups can be just as friendly as any other breed.

German Shepherd are one of banned dog breeds

2. German Shepherd

Intelligent “work” dogs, German Shepherds are used as police dogs, guide dogs, and farm hand dogs. They are aloof with strangers and not easily distracted. These dogs are energetic and love play time, but they are calm and restrained as well. German Shepherds shed a lot, it may be best if you don’t have carpet in your home. That said, they are also quite high on aggression statistics charts, and thus some places have banned adopting German Shepherd Dogs.

Dogo Canario are one of banned dog breeds

3. Dogo Canario

A member of the mastiff family, the Dogo Canario is not known to be friendly with kids, cats, dogs or strangers. That is why he makes the list of banned dog breeds. These dogs are energetic and alert, meaning they need regular exercise. Also called the Perro de Presa Canario, pups in this breed are said to be friendly if raised with kids and other animals. They would need proper socialization and training to be any more than a guard dog.

Chow Chow are one of banned dog breeds

4. Chow Chow

These regal dogs always remind me of a lion. With a body of fluffy hair, they do not do well in hot weather. The Chow Chow doesn’t have a lot of energy, so it needs little exercise. These dogs are independent and self-willed making them harder to train. Pooches from this breed are known to be pretty aggressive and don’t always do well with the people and animals around them.

Mastiff are one of banned dog breeds

5. Mastiff Breeds

There are many types of Mastiffs, including the Japanese (Tosu Inu), Bull, Brazilian, Neapolitan, Tibetan and Argentino. These dogs are considered to be “gentle giants” by those who own them. Mastiffs are affectionate and do great in families that have kids. They do make excellent guard and watch dogs, but only if trained to be. All Mastiffs are independent and strong-willed. They need a dedicated trainer who is willing to put in the time to be “pack leader”.

Cane Corso are one of banned dog breeds

6. Cane Corso

Dogs in this breed have short hair with minimal shedding making them easy to maintain. They are also a hardy and healthy lot. The Cane Corso is intelligent and eager to please, so they are easy to train. Most of these pooches are quiet and calm, but they’re still one of the most commonly banned dog breeds. Another from the Mastiff breed, this dog usually doesn’t like other dogs and cats. They do better in a home with older, calmer children.

Dogue de Bordeaux are one of banned dog breeds

7. Dogue de Bordeaux

The Dogue de Bordeaux is a drooling giant that most people would not consider “beautiful”. They are affectionate with members of their family, but don’t always get along with other kids that come over. These loyal dogs make great watch dogs, but would need to be the only animal in your family. They don’t need a lot of exercise and are somewhat lazy.

Bully Breeds are one of banned dog breeds

8. Bully Breeds

Whether you’re talking about the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Bully or the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, these breeds are often on the lists of most commonly banned dog breeds. Surprisingly, these dogs have a great reputation for being great with children. In fact, dogs in the Bull breeds are often called “nanny dogs” for their constant companionship and guarding of the family’s children. Although, you can’t train these dogs to be aggressive guard dogs and then expect them to be okay with kids and animals.

Ca de Bou are one of banned dog breeds

9. Ca de Bou

With “Mastiff” ancestry, this dog is also known as a “Bulldog” based on the fact that it was originally used as a bull baiting dog. The Ca de Bou is also known as the Perro do Preser Mallorquin. This pup shares the same traits as most “Mastiffs” and “Bulldogs”. They are a rare breed, so care must be taken to ensure you get a dog from a reputable breeder. Inbreeding can cause aggression and other unwanted traits.

Bandog are one of banned dog breeds

10. Bandog

Another rare dog that is one of the most commonly banned dog breeds, this is a breed of varied ancestry. They were originally created by breeding “Mastiff” breeds with “Bull Dog” breeds. Their looks can be varied as well. Some looking more like the “Mastiffs” and some looking more like “Bull Dogs”. The Bandog, like many other dogs on this list, was used to fight bulls, bears, and other dogs. They are known to be fearless and brave.

Kuvasz are one of banned dog breeds

11. Kuvasz

This breed can be aggressive and fearful. They are not recommended for families with kids or other pets; however, they are still affectionate with their owners. Kuvasz are not known to be playful and energetic. They prefer a quiet, laid-back family. These stubborn, strong-willed dogs need a strong, take charge owner. Protective and territorial, these pooches make great guard dogs for livestock.

Rottweiler are one of banned dog breeds

12. Rottweiler

These dogs are calm and brave. They can get up to 130 pounds – possibly more! Dogs in this breed are not hyper and needy. Rottweilers are recommended for experienced owners because of their size. Training needs to start as soon as possible while they are still small enough to be easily handled. While they are known to be friendly with kids in the household, they need to be the only canine kid in the house.

Akita Inu are one of banned dog breeds

13. Akita Inu

These dogs prefer to be the dominant dog. You will need to practice “pack-leader” training if you own one of these dogs. They do not like other animals, so no trips to the dog park for these canines. Akita breed dogs are active and need exercise, so it is best to have a larger yard with a higher fence. This pup is known to be aggressive around the food bowl, which is just one of the reasons it is one of the most commonly banned dog breeds.

Human (Your) Behavioral Modification

This may sound crazy. You want the dog to modify his behavior for your needs, not the other way around. It doesn’t always work that way. Dogs have thousands of years of breeding in them to be a certain way.

The canines on this list of banned dog breeds have generations and generations of breeding to make them fighting dogs – brave, aggressive, territorial, aloof, and tenacious. There are some things that you can do to avoid triggering your dog’s aggression.

  1. To avoid dog bites and attacks, no one should approach or try to pet your dog while it is eating.
  2. Kids need to be taught not to look dogs straight in the eye. To dogs, this is a challenge.
  3. Just because a tail is wagging, doesn’t mean the dog is happy. Tail wagging is used when a dog is excited, which could be a good or a bad excited mood.
  4. Don’t approach chained animals. The dog may feel it is in a compromising situation and needs to protect itself.
  5. Make sure dogs hear that you are approaching if they are sleeping. Walk hard, start talking – anything so that you don’t scare them when you are up close. Scared animals sometimes attack.

8 Ways How Dogs Are Similar to People (Based on Brain Scans)

Need a way to keep your dog clean then please keep reading below as they have some great tips and tricks to keeping your dog clean and looking smart . 

Of course if you need a professional dog groomer in Sydney then you can reach out and contact us as well and we will put you in touch with a mobile dog wash or grooming service

You probably wonder sometimes what thoughts are going through your pup’s head. Do you know what are dogs really thinking about? It’s a question most dog owners desperately want to know about their pets since dogs can’t speak or express their feelings as effectively as we can. And dogs’ feelings, thoughts may be the reason why our dogs are similar to us, and especially their own humans.

Emory University neuroscientist Gregory Berns and his team have been conducting MRI studies of dogs’ brains for years through the Dog Project. They have been scanning the dogs in the hopes of determining what these beloved animals are actually thinking and feeling.

The experiment has had much success so far in understanding these animals but the Dog Project has only scratched the surface. Here are at eight answers to the questions pet owners might have about their furry best friend, as supplied by the experts of the Dog Project.

Brain Scans Can Help Choose Better Service Dog Candidates

1. Dogs have a similar love of food and love of humans, and their brains respond in the same way

In the conducted experiments, the scientists found markers in most of the dog’s brain circuits that showed the same activated response. Experts tied this to the dog’s concept of a reward system from two different cues: food and their humans.

Apparently, a part of their brain lights up when they received food. But the same part also lights up if their owners are there for social contact, such as when their humans give the dogs praise or a pat on the head.

But the experts stated that dogs are still individuals who may have different responses. In their studies, there were some dogs who preferred the praises and social contact better than food, and vice-versa. However, the vast majority of dogs had equal responses, leading the experts to conclude that dogs love food and humans in equal ways.

2. Dogs can pick up on words that humans speak but it’s hard to say if they truly understand what it means

It’s true that dogs can pick up important words from humans. They know what a person means when she says “Get the stick.” But the experts are still trying to determine if these words pull up a mental image for the dog.

At this point, it’s hard to conclude if dogs can conjure a visual representation of a stick in their head and understand that there’s a real thing.

Dogs might just be associating the sounds from the words of humans. The experts are still not certain dogs get semantics.

Scientific Studies Prove Dogs Understand Emotions

3. Dogs have a variety of different emotions

The MRI scans of the dogs in the experiment picked up different reactions from the cues given to them. They showed a range of responses that, for the scientists, are like emotions.

Dogs and humans both have a caudate nucleus, which activates when triggered by cues. Humans also have a bigger caudate nucleus than dogs.

But other scientists don’t accept that dogs can have feelings. Berns explained to National Geographic that the hesitation or confusion might lie in the fact that humans have labels for these feelings, such as love, happiness, fear or guilt because men have a language.

Dogs may be trying to communicate using their eyes, faces and manipulation

4. Dogs may be trying to communicate using their eyes, faces and manipulation

Since dogs are social animals and the first animals to live and become domesticated by humans, it’s possible they are trying to communicate with us. They might try to use their faces, especially those manipulative puppy dog eyes, to connect. Unfortunately, there are still no definitive studies that prove this is the case.

5. Dogs have a concept of time

Dogs understand the concept of time. Similar to humans, they possess an internal body clock, called the circadian rhythm, that tells them if they are hungry, or if they need to pee and poop, or if the environment outside is changing from night to day.

But the humans’ concept of time involves seconds, minutes or hours. It also includes the “what, when and where” as men have episodic memories and can remember episodes in their life like their childhood, family holidays or milestones.

Dogs, on the other hand, use their associative memory to gauge time. They associate a smell, sound or routines. They don’t perceive time as the passing of seconds, minutes and hours, as per a study in the journal Applied Animal Behaviour.

Dogs are self-aware

6. Dogs are self-aware

Dogs can recognize themselves based on their sense of smell. A study in the journal Behavioral Process proved that dogs have the ability for self-recognition and self-awareness if they relied on their noses.

They can tell the difference between their pee and other dogs. But their awareness is more about “this is mine” rather than “this is me.” But dogs won’t be able to recognize themselves in front of a mirror. They are beings with a strong sense of smell than sight, after all.

7. Dogs have innate personality traits

Dogs possess their own personality traits based on the cues from their amygdala. Some of the dogs’ amygdala appears to be more triggered by the cues around them. It’s what makes up their differences even if they are raised in a similar environment.

If you’d like to know your dog’s personality and temperament, you can try filling out a C-Barq test. This is what the scientists use for their experiments.

Dogs' responses to cues can be different even if they are of the same breeds

8. Dogs’ responses to cues can be different even if they are of the same breeds

Similar to innate personalities, dogs have varied brain responses to the cues around them even if they are from the same breed. They can be as different from each other when they’re from the same littler, which might prove that dogs are their own individuals, in the same way as each human is their own person too.

In Conclusion

Dogs are still considered properties under man’s laws. The purpose of this experiment is to prove to the world that dogs cannot be lumped in the same category as furniture.

They deserve to be treated like another person because they are sentient beings with feelings, emotions, and personalities. They also value social connection and interaction just like humans do. They have superior social intelligence compared to other animals.

The Dog Project conducts their experiment in Atlanta voluntarily. The animals are not subjected to stress and pressure. They just have to sit still at inside the MRI machine so their neuron responses can be measured.

15 Separately Abandoned Matted Dogs May Be Linked, Authorities Say

Need a way to keep your dog clean then please keep reading below as they have some great tips and tricks to keeping your dog clean and looking smart . 

Of course if you need a professional dog groomer in Sydney then you can reach out and contact us as well and we will put you in touch with a mobile dog wash or grooming service

Locals in Norfolk worked together to groom and give medical attention to 15 dogs, mostly Newfoundlands, abandoned by the roadside.

Authorities in this small town in England are trying to trace an unusual occurrence one Monday night in October when 15 dogs with matted fur were abandoned in separate locations. It’s believed that the cases are connected. But without any leads, it will be harder to find the culprit behind this animal cruelty.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) first received a call about eight dogs dumped in the Vale of Belvoir area in Norfolk. According to the Eastern Daily Press, the animals were wandering by the roadside when a resident spotted them.

Jessica Craske, 20, thought that the animals were sheep and someone has lost the herd. But upon closer look, she realized that they were Newfoundlands, Lhasa Apsos and cockapoodles.

Seven More Abandoned Matted Dogs

The woman said that aside from their matted fur, the dogs smelled so bad and looked thin and frail. The animals looked clearly depressed and in pain but they were not aggressive.

So, together with her neighbors, Craske rounded up the dogs to take them to a nearby veterinarian to keep them safe. She also reported the incident to the police, which then notified the RSPCA.

But not long after, the RSPCA also received another call about seven Newfoundlands abandoned in another Norfolk area.  Their condition was also similar to the first batch of dogs with their matted fur and failing health.

No Coincidence

In a statement, the RSPCA said that it made sense to conclude that these abandonments were not a coincidence. The dogs were dumped and found on the same night in places close to each other. They also showed the same signs of similar health and behavioral conditions.

Because of their breed, it’s likely that these animals were mainly used for breeding but were dumped when they were no longer of use to the breeders. The RSPCA and the vets took care of grooming the dogs. They were also assessed and checked for any medical issues. Other groomers also volunteered to help shave their matted fur.

It’s unclear how long the dogs endured their sorry condition because most of them had thick matted hair, which made it harder to shave off. One dog’s shaved hair was about 16 pounds.

Re-Homing the Dogs

After the group’s effort to groom the dogs, the RSPCA announced that it will soon find new homes for these pets if no one comes forward to claim them. RSPCA Inspector Kate Burris told the press that the dogs have a friendly temperament but they are still scared of what’s happening around them.

But the animals look a lot better now that they are rid of the matted hair. The RSCPA will also be nursing them back to health.

The agency also asked the public to alert them of any leads if they have any knowledge about these dogs. Craske, meanwhile, also alerted her social circle on Facebook because they too might find more abandoned dogs in a similar state.

New Breeding Licensing Requirements

The RSPCA told BBC that it’s possible more dogs will be abandoned like this following recent changes to the licensing requirements for breeders. England put into effect the new laws as of October 2018, as per The Kennel Club U.K.

Breeders have to comply with the new star rating system to ascertain that their facilities are up to the standards and that they deserve to be given a license.
