Dogs are Not Just for Biting, they are the Best Security Guards

By Nathan Brown T Subscribe to RSS | January 6th 2012 | Views:

Security is a major concern, be it your home, office, factory or a club. There is no place that thieves will not infiltrate or break in to make away with property. Terror attacks, mostly hidden bombs can wreck havoc on human mind and cause untold agony besides the collateral damage to property and life. ADT Alarm Systems help us prevent burglary and can alert security guards to take timely actions. But still they lack that human-like attention that security richly deserves. The only thing that can be human-like is human alone. However, that dogs can be trained to mimic human and in some cases even surpass human ability is a foregone conclusion that cannot be denied. Dogs can smell better, are alerter, and intelligent too.

Dogs have been used by man from time immemorial; for hunting, guarding settlements, herding cattle, guiding the blind, sniffing explosives, and during war time even for attacking enemies and bombing. Some of the uses to which we put dogs can be inhuman but the concern for their well being is receiving attention nowadays. Like human, dogs too need to be in good health to perform their duties. In fact we have so much in common with them; need personal hygiene, nutritious food, medical checkup, exercises, quality drinking water; they also have emotional problems, are prone to diseases like hypertension and diabetes…almost everything that we need to maintain good health.

Dogs love human company very much no doubt, and are also his best friend in the animal kingdom rightfully. They are loveable, can be kept in homes and even be trusted to play with your babies. They are also smarter than most domestic animals and also have the capacity to adapt to human diets, of course with some changes here and there. Genetically they are the descendents from the wolf family of animals, and years of cross breeding have given us new breeds that would hardly resemble their ancestors. Some dogs excel in hunting, some are good at guarding… there is almost no end to the variety of dogs you can see.

Dogs need special attention as I said, and considering their usefulness it makes sense to spend some time for them to take care of their health. Dog care is a specialized subject, but most of the rules relating to their health are basic, follow them, and have a happy time with your dog.

a. Dogs are more likely to blend into your family when you get them young in your family. In fact it gives them a sense of fraternity and belonging which should bring happiness to you, just as much as to the dog; and to make it happen give them a good diet that consists of carbohydrates, protein, vitamins and minerals. If you are in doubt about what will give them the right level of nutrients, you can choose canned food made especially for dogs.

b. Groom them daily with a brush to avoid hair fall. Bathing is something that you can do once or twice a day. There are some specialized soaps for them. Dust their body with powder to prevent fleas and ticks from infesting their body.

c. Have an exclusive warm place for your dog to rest, with plenty of clean water, a bed and a pillow. They are very much like humans and need good rest.

d. If your dog has bad breathe then take him/her to a veterinary doctor for a health check. The frequent cause is bacterial infection or plaque which if detected early can be remedied easily. Dogs may also require periodontal attention if he/she has not been attended on for some time.

e. Vaccinate your dog at the appropriate time. A combination vaccination commonly called a 5-in-one should see him through for a long time.

f. Have a badge around his neck if the municipal laws require it. As well, train your dog the basics of good habits and hygiene. Be patient with them; in the end they usually fall in line with your expectations, although you should expect some resistance in the beginning. Some states require that you pay a tax for keeping pets. So check that.
