Did You Know – 12/13/2017

 

  1. In 1904 a magazine advertisement, ran by the Cooper Underwear Company, started advertising the T-shirt not as an underwear item, but as a regular piece of clothing. The ad showed a masculine guy wearing the product, which had the following tag line: ‚Äúno safety pins, no buttons, no needle, no thread‚ÄĚ. The purpose of the ad was to show the clothing item in a new light. The company wanted to re-brand the product and to market it as a comfortable piece of clothing that doesn‚Äôt require the replacement of any buttons. The T-shirt was, thus, marketed to bachelors, who had no women around to sew back the ripped buttons on their shirts.

3. ¬†A one¬†dog year is not equal to 7 human years. Dogs don’t age parallel to people, they actually age more quickly at first, then slow down. Depending on their size and breed, a 1-year-old dog is about the same as a 15-year-old person a 2-year-old dog is like a 24-year-old person and every year after that is equal to about 4-6 human years

1.Ginger is a long used medicine in many cultures, it is a winter must have because of its anti inflammatory compounds. It is very inexpensive and known to be used for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and the cancer linked to it.

 

2. If you want to befriend a dog this is how you do it. Dogs get high when you rub their ears real good. They have a branch of nerves in their ears that extend to their internal organs and release endorphins when you rub them, sending relaxing impulses through their bodies and going them a natural high.

3. Anxiety¬†can be a direct result of their parents behavior. Though high anxiety is partly genetic, children are more likely to be anxious if their parents openly criticize them, doubt their competence, are controlling, or are emotionally cold – to the pont that researchers analyzing a childs anxiety have been able to predict their mother’s behavior before ever observing it.

4.¬†With a country such as Norway, with so many beautiful areas and scenery, you might think that the access is restricted or commercialized by someone. But that isn‚Äôt the case.¬†Trespassing is not so much of a thing in Norway. The country has a law called ‘allemannsretten’ meaning every man’s right or the right to roam that dates back to ancient times and allow you to freely roam and camp on all uncultivated land as long as you show respect for nature and pick up your trash.

5.¬†The phrase ‘Crab mentality’ is used to describe the ‘if I can’t have it, neither can you’ mindset. The metaphors refers to a pot of crabs that could easily get out, but they ensure their own demise by competitively clawing at each other-like spiteful humans trying to bring down those who are more successful by diminishing their importance¬†

Ways to Make Your Dog Smarter

  1. Hide the Food РNow this I believe would need to be started right from the beginning of ownership. Could be fun could be frustrating but rewarding. Put away dogs bowl . Hide food around the yard for your dog to seek out. This encourages natural exploratory behavours and allowing them to use their senses.
  2. A New Scent РPackage up something like say Lavender or your sock. When they go to smell it give them a treat and a tug of war game which they usually love. When your dog makes the association with the smell hide it and cue them to search for it. When they find it reward them with a game of tug of war. They love it. Later try hiding it in a box amongst other boxes. They will indicate when they have found it and also looking for that game.
  3. Game of Fetch – That simple game is great to keep the dogs mentally active. Reward them for returning the object.
  4. Hide and Seek РThis is a great training tool for recall in the back yard or park.  It helps govern their ability to come when called. Two people needed one with the dog and the other hiding. When hidden from sight cue your dog to search and allow them to hunt.
  5. The challenge Engage in a mental memory game by hiding a treat under a cup. When your dog nuzzles the cup lift it and give them a treat. The challenge will be as your dog improves introduce more  cups to the game
