I have recently heard about the benefits of Coconut oil for dogs.  I have done my research and found that it is very beneficial to them, but dosage is important.  According to several sources the dosage should be 1/4 teaspoon per 10 pounds, twice a day with food, or 1/2 teaspoon per 10 pounds with food, once a day.  Always start with a smaller amount and work up to the full dosage.

In doing my research I have found that you must use Extra Virgin Coconut Oil or Virgin Coconut Oil.  I am using, for Spike, Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil.  Found on www. tropicaltriditions.com.

Here is a great article on the benefits of Coconut oil, benefits of cocont oil.

Obedience training is an easy way to establish the social hierarchy for your puppy. When your dog obeys a simple request of 'come here, sit,' she is showing compliance and respect for you.

Excellent! it is very useful post and tips for puppy training. How to train your puppies is a question asked by almost all dog owners. It seems everyone has advice and tips, and opinions on the best way to train your puppies.

Puppies learn very fast with proper training. The primary few days at home are very important for puppies and the examples you set now will last a life span. Following these basic techniques as soon as you bring your puppy home will make sure a positive housetraining experience for you and your puppy:-

* Ensure you give your dog lots of consideration and attention when he’s doing the right and good thing. Praise him plentifully when he’s been a good boy.

* There is nothing intrinsically incorrect with telling your dog “no,” it’s just that it doesn’t give him sufficient information. Instead of “no,” instruct him what you want him to do.

* Give your puppy recurrent admission to his toilet area for preventing soiling inside house. Reward the puppy for do so - give a special treat.

* Nourish your puppy with 2 – 3 meals per day. Leave food out for 15-20 minutes then take away the leftover food. Never leave food out for puppy to eat at will. This helps you find out when she’ll have to go potty.

* Let your new puppy steadily earn freedom all through your home. So, close off doors to vacant rooms and use baby gates to segment off parts of the house, if required.www.dog-buy.com
