  MAKE THE PUPS KNOW WHO'S IN CHARGE However, they can be your worst
enemy sometimes.
  HUNTING THE RIGHT HOUND That's part of the fun. Some breeds were even
bred to finish the job themselves. Due to some unscrupulous breeders and unmindful
owners, a few breeds within the terrier group have developed rather notorious
reputations. Like most terriers, this "king of terriers" has little time for other dogs, and
if not properly supervised may engage in some street brawling. Dog breeds in this
classification include:Afghan Hound, American Foxhound, Basenji, Basset Hound,
Beagle, Black and Tan Coonhound, Bloodhound, Borzoi, Dachshund, English
Foxhound, Greyhound, Harrier, Ibizan Hound, Irish Wolfhound, Norwegian Elkhound,
Otterhound, Petit Basset, Griffon Vendeen, Pharaoh Hound, Plott, Rhodesian
Ridgeback, Saluki, Scottish Deerhound, Whippet. Unfortunately, the sheer popularity
of some of the sporting breeds, most notably cocker spaniels but also Labrador and
golden retrievers, has led to a rise in health and behavioural problems. The American
Kennel Club created this dog group to honour what is one of the oldest of dog
professions:herding livestock. Unfortunately, these are the dogs you're likely to find at
the local shelter or dog pound, often the result of accidental breeding between two
un-sterilized dogs. Non-sporting dog breeds. Sporting dog breeds. Often used
interchangeably, the terms "mixed breed" and "crossbreed" have slightly different
meanings. Generally, sturdier, active dogs love kids, but unless your dog is
well-trained, he may pose a risk to your children. These same traits often lead to some
of these animals being recruited into service positions, either as helper dogs for the
disabled or as bomb and drug sniffers for law enforcement agencies. The poodle is by
far the most popular of the non-sporting breeds. This is the list of dog Herding Breeds
according to The American Kennel Club:Australian Cattle Dog, Australian Shepherd,
Bearded Collie, Beauceron, Belgian Malinois, Belgian Sheepdog, Belgian Tervuren,
Border Collie, Bouvier des Flandres Briard, Canaan Dog, Cardigan Welsh Corgi,
Collie, German Shepherd Dog, Old, English Sheepdog, Pembroke Welsh Corgi,
Polish Lowland Sheepdog, Puli, Shetland Sheepdog, Swedish Vallhund.
  THE ANATOMY OF A CANINE The fur can be puffed up to trap warm air in cold
weather or held closely against the skin to release heat on warm days. Even the size of
a canid's ears plays a part in temperature control. The long hair of the Lhasa apso is
due to a naturally prolonged growth phase that was emphasized by selective breeding
for thermal protection and aesthetic reasons. It serves many functions from tasting to
keeping the animal cool. Rose Ears. Lapping It Up Dogs use their large, spongy
tongues like ladles to lap up water. Staying Cool. The tongue is one of a dog's most
important organs. Like all mammals, the canid family is able to control body
temperature through various physical functions. Consider its body parts too Consider
the most noticeable dog feature first- the hair. The rose ears found in some bulldogs
and pugs, a variation of a drop ear, is folded inward along the back edge, with the tip
curving over and back to show the opening to the ear.
  WHY THE HELP? You can actually see your dog wait next to the door when he/she
needs to go out to use the bathroom. Well, here's a gift for you:You can now learn it in
a snap. If your dog doesn't make progress at all, this must be because of this fact.
