HOW

TO

TAKE CARE OF YOUR DOG‌ IN THIS ARTICLE YOU WILL FIND 6 EASY STEPS TO TAKE CARE OF OUR DOGS First, let your dog out of its sleeping crate. Crates are good uses for beds, when you leave the house, and when they're naughty. Give them some affection to show that you love them. Don't force it if it barks or pulls away; take a break and try again later, and if it pulls away don't put it back in its crate. IT creates negativity of the crate. Feed your dog breakfast. Like people, dog want some too. You can find pet bowls and pet food at your local pet store. If your dog has NOT had all its teeth come in, you might want to consider buying canned food or wetting the food with water until they all have come in. (Give water in the dogs food if your dog doesn't drink as much. They are guaranteed to drink that water as it tastes like its food.) Teach your dog manners by having them use the command sit before feeding them. Once they have sat for five second, give them their food. Keep them sitting while the food is being put on the ground and say ok before they are allowed to eat the food.

Give your dog a walk. Dogs enjoy being outside to smell new smells, see new sights, and simply to walk. Start by buying a 6 foot leash and some poop bags. You can find these at your local pet store. Have the dog to the left of you and let about a 4-5" slack on the leash. To run or jog, hold on to the edge of the leash and run, letting your dog be in front of you. If you don't do that, the dog may run into the street and get hit by a driving car not just leading to death, but painful tears. As puppies keep the dogs closer to you to prevent later pulling and straining on the leash. Take your dog home and play with it by throwing a ball. If your dog ever participates in hunting, like a German Short-haired pointer, do not play games like tug-of-war. If your dog gets a bird and you try to take it, it may turn to tug-of-war. Have your dog sit when you take the toy out of it's mouth to prevent this tug-of-war. Feed them (Puppy) Feed your dog until it is full. Be careful though. Puppies meant to be in the wild or hunting will eat more then they need and turn it into fat. (Adult) Feed your dog 2 cups of food. this varies from dog to dog. Those dogs living in cities with little outside play need less then dogs in wide open spaces. The size of your dog matters too, if it is a 15 pound dog it needs less food then a 115 pound dog.

SPECIAL COVERAGE In this special coverage our reporter has talked to Dr. Lily Contreras, dental child specialist, Dr. Contreras has a PhD in pediatric dental health. We talked about dental health in preschool children. Reporter Dr. Contreras, When should we start to brush our children´s teeth? Dr. Contreras To create a habit in our children, we must begin in the early months of life, some specialist recommend to start at the age of 6 months while others at 10 months, but no longer than that. Rep Don´t you think that´s a little bit too early? Dr. It might seem so, but remember we´re creating habits, so is important for the baby to get used to this custom. In this moment of his or her life, having a baby brush (which is a special brush) should be fun, in order to make the baby comfortable when using it. Rep A special brush? Can you tell us about it? Dr. Of course, this is a rubber brush that can be placed in the index finger. When the baby is teething it will provide aching relief in the gums, more than that, it´s an aid while teaching and making the transition to the formal tooth brush we all know. Rep Thank you Dr. Don´t miss next coverage on how to prevent strokes.

HOW DOES LIGHT AFFECT WHEN STUDING Did you ever thought about the importance of light when you study? Sometimes we don´t pay attention to it and we forget to check our lamps, windows and room light. But light can affect the brain. So when studying, make sure to have the right brightness and illumination. Today in our studying techniques section, we´ll talk about light depression. Having a good and proper illumination in the studying area is important for many reasons. It´s not only useful to see better what we´re doing, but also helps us in preventing health problems and that will outcome in our productivity and also we will feel energetic. Recent studies have shown that the 68% of persons who study, often feel tired and had to include eyewear through school years and wonder if it had to do with the illumination where they work. Students often have headaches, tiredness and stress. Many persons are concern about their study room illumination but don´t know what to do. Besides these facts, having a good illumination produces melatonin, a chemical hormone that helps loosing stress, tiredness and best of all, helps the person to keep a good mood. So what can we do? Use Led lights (they save money and they brighten enough) Do not use dark walls, prefer the light and soft colors to paint Prefer the natural light, using big windows Buy a good desk lamp and get ready to read…
