My friends got themselves a nice little friend. 5 Months later...the dog is not so cute and little anymore and he didn't listen at all. We talked a lot about it and so I found some useful information. Enjoy.

DOG OBEDIENCE TRAINING============================MAKE THE PUPS KNOW WHO'S IN CHARGE--------------------------------------------------- They can ruin everything from your bags to your clothes, your bed sheets to yourcurtains.HUNTING THE RIGHT HOUND---------------------------------------------------If you can't decide between a shepherd, a setter or a poodle, get them all adopt amutt. Some of the listed Working dog breeds are:Akita, Alaskan Malamute, AnatolianShepherd Dog, Bernese Mountain Dog, Black Russian Terrier, Boxer, Bullmastiff,Doberman Pinscher, German Pinscher, Giant Schnauzer, Great Dane, Great Pyrenees,Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, Komondor, Kuvasz, Mastiff, Neapolitan Mastiff,Newfoundland, Portuguese Water Dog, Rottweiler, Saint Bernard Samoyed, SiberianHusky, Standard Schnauzer, Tibetan Mastiff. That's part of the fun. Terrier dog breeds.Motivated by rising inner-city crime rates and by the rather twisted notion that owninga powerful dog somehow enhances one's social standing, all too many people haveinvested a lot of money in acquiring one of these dogs, but sometimes nothing canconvince some of these dogs that not all strangers, especially children, pose a threat.Some dog breeds under this group include American Eskimo Dog, Bichon Frise, Boston Terrier, Bulldog, Chinese Shar-Pei, Chow Chow, Dalmatian, Finnish Spitz, French,Bulldog, Keeshond, Lhasa Apso, Lowchen, Poodle, Schipperke, Shiba Inu, TibetanSpaniel, Tibetan Terrier. They range from the tall and lanky Irish wolfhound to theshort-legged dachshund in size. The sporting group comprises some of the mostpopular breeds, including pointers, setters, retrievers and spaniels. The dachshund, ahound in origin, might seem to be out of place in this group, as its background as adigger accustomed to chasing foxes and badgers underground would more logicallymake it a terrier. Scent hounds such as bloodhounds, beagles and foxhounds havehistorically aided hunters by following the scent trails left by their quarry. The millionsof mixed-breed dogs around the world are a testament to that. To know more aboutthese canine kinds, here are some areas to consider in selecting what mutt to adopt:Herding dog breeds. A vet or a dog breeder can suggest other possibilities. The world'smost popular breed of dog is no breed at all. Combining the taut muscles and compactpower of the bulldog with the tenacity and aggressiveness of the terrier, somecontroversial bull terrier breeds have been involved in some highly publicized bitingincidents, several involving small children. THE ANATOMY OF A CANINE---------------------------------------------------Wire-Haired. Canids, including domestic dogs, have 42 teeth, although there are a fewexceptions:The bat-eared fox has 48. Other breeds such as German shepherds andgolden retrievers have been trained to detect hidden drugs, explosives, and eventermites. Four toe pads and claws are located below the toes on the underside of adog's paw. The bloodhound can follow a four-day-old track using its highly developedsense of smell. Species such as wolves that inhabit cold climates sport double coats,with a thick, insulating underlayer to retain heat and keep the cold at bay. The wire-haired coat of the dachshund features a higher quantity and density of the harshprimary hairs in a dog's coat. Typically, they sport solid grey, brown or black coats,composed of light to dark colour-banded hairs, called agouti, like grey wolves. Wolveshave remarkably thick, two-layered coats to protect them from extreme weather.Special taste receptors on their tongues are believed to allow canids to recognizechemical composition variancessuch as salt and impuritiesin different water sources. The tongue is one of a dog's most important organs.
