2 questions about dogs?
Brooke Asked: 2 questions about dogs?
my friend wants to know
1. she has a very pretty australian shepherd and she was wondering if next summer if she get her dog a hair cut will she look funny and will it grow back normal
2. what does she need to pack (besides food) for her dog when she goes camping with her dog
1: Dogs can run around in the wild which will make it hard to find her.
2: If you are camping in the woods, get some bug spray because dogs attract ticks!
Tell your friend she should never, ever cut her Aussies hair.That hair is there to protect against the suns rays and the cold of winter.Dogs with long hair should never have the hair cut.
She needs to pack something for the dog to sleep on, two bowls, one for food and one for water.She needs to carry her own water supply to prevent diarrhea, a leash, a collar, and an extra leash in case one gets broken or lost. A tag on the collar listing her name, address and phone number.Put on a flea topical to prevent any fleas ticks or mosquitoe bites, and just have a good time.
Look at some pictures of that breed with there hair cut to see whether it looks funny. But it will grow back normally!
Take food, food and water bowls, lead and collar, maybe a tether, dog bed. Anything you would have normally really!
I'm not that familiar with the breed so don't really know about how she would look with a haircut.Although it should grow back normally.Maybe don't cut it too short.
For camping – the dog will need food and water.A canine first aid kit would be a good idea as well in case she gets scratched or steps on something.Also maybe check with the vet for a Leipto vaccination if dog is going to be swimming or near stagnant water.And I would put Frontline flea and tick on her too a couple of days before leaving.
All Aussies look funny when they are shaved. A touch up trim wouldn't look bad, but shaving a long haired dog doesn't actually help them stay cool. Their coats do all of that for them. All it takes is for an Aussie to be brushed every day. He needs to be kept mat and tangle free and his coat will do the rest. If she does decide to shave him, yes, it will grow back to normal, but rather slowly. She needs to keep in mind that if she doesn't like it, she is going to have to wait quite a while for his coat to grow back. In my opinion, they never look as handsome after they have been shaved, even after the coat grows back. My mom made me shave my Brittany every summer when I was a kid and his coat stopped growing back right after a while. It was nice and thick, but just didn't look as handsome as it used to.
Water, a bowl for it, and EXTRA food. When camping, you must always be ready for the unexpected. You might not think it possible, but what if you had to stay out in the wilderness (where we live, only the tourists use campsites so for us, it truly is the wilderness) longer than expected. Bring a tether for the dog since most places don't allow dogs off leash and you wouldn't want him running off into the trees after a critter.
Really, all we bring is food, water, bowls, and a tether. People will probably tell you to bring more, but that's all we bring. Oh, and a bed. We toss their bed into a corner of our tent when we set the tent up and in cold weather we bring an extra blanket to toss over the top of them.
If she gets her dogs hair cut, she will look funny for a while but it will grow back normally. The only reason to shave her would be if she was matted. It wouldn't make her any cooler because dogs have a kind of cooling system in their coat that helps to keep them from overheating in the summer.
K9 advantix will take care of any fleas or ticks the dog might pick up while camping if she doesn't want to deal with bug spray, just put it on a day or two before going camping. Other than that, I think shes pretty much good with just food and water
1. She will not look funny, she will look like a doberman.
2. You need to pack her bowls. Water for her food for her. Some medicines used for dogs for cuts and wounds she will get while roaming around in camping. (bushes,thorns , bites,)
3. If you are camping for more than 1 day then her bed.
