If there is a common mistake that not experienced dog owners do is to feed their dogs with human food. Never feed human food to your dog, it’s way too salty, too spicy and too fatty for them. Actually, many of the food we consume is very dangerous and even toxic for our pups. Moreover, dogs learn very fast. Never feed them or give them from your food while you are eating. That will create a bad habit in your dog which is to beg for food everytime he sees you with food in your hands.

 

Neglecting your dog’s teeth

You can do whatever thing in life, but NEVER ever leave your dog inside of car. Researchers have found that the temperature inside a car can go up to 20 degrees in just 10 minutes, even if the car is parked in the shade. It is known that dogs don’t sweat like us and overheating can happen much quicker than you expect.

 

Choosing the wrong collar

There are many things to consider when choosing a collar for your dog. If it’s too big, the dog may escape and if it’s too small, it could be squishing the dog’s neck. The general rule to get the perfect collar is, for small and medium size dogs, you should be able to place one your finger between the collar/harness and the pup. For large and extra-large dogs, 2 fingers should fit.

 

Yelling when your dog does something wrong

If there is something dogs need is constant mental and physical stimulation, especially working breeds. Digging, chewing or ripping things apart are some of the activities dogs that don’t get much stimulation do.

10 Things That Shar Peis Do When They Are Trying To Tell You Something

0

It’s very normal for dog owners to refer to themselves as pet’s parents, and there’s is a lot of sense and truth to do that . When dog owners do this, they’re telling the world that owning and taking care of a dog is as much difficult as having a kid.

But there is one more thing that dog owners have to deal with, itt is the communication. You can own a dog, love him but communication can be a problem. On the contrary,  while parents might be confused about whatever hip new phrase their kid keeps spouting, they have the luxury of otherwise speaking the same language.

That means that until someone finally creates a dog-to-human translator, you must learn how to interpret and understand your dog body language.

Having said that, here we will shoe you some common behaviors Shar Peis will show to  their owners and what can be its meaning.

Continual eye contact.

Resultado de imagen para shar pei staring

We have to say that, this one depends too much on the way your dog is lookig at you. However, if your dog has a normal face expression that could mean that your dog is just showing you affection. In fact, a group of Japanese researchers have found a link between this eye contact and increased levels of oxytocin, a hormone that affects how we express attachment and nurturing qualities.

Raising a paw up

If you are with your dog and he is raising a paw up while focusing with her head down, i advise you to get out of his way. It means your dog is on the hunt and getting ready to pounce on some prey, usually a bird or other little animals.

Making himself look small.

Resultado de imagen para shar pei sad

Doing this by your dog basically means that he is just scared of something. However, if you meet a dog and see him doing this it means that he can be scared or the dog has been mistreated by his owner.

When your dog brings things to you.

When your dog brings things to you, it does not mean that he wants to play fetch or something like that. Even if he brings you a ball. When dogs bringing things to their owners means that they are just trying to help or give you things you might like or things they think you could use or be looking for.

Chewing things

This one depends if the dog has been trained and if he’s shown signs of separation anxiety. If the dog has been trained not to chew things or furniture, it could mean that the dog is just bored and is trying to let that extra energy go. You can try giving the dog more exercise or going for a walk or run in the morning.

Yawning

Resultado de imagen para shar pei yawning

The first time you see a dog yawning you might think that he wants to sleep or is tired. However, dogs don’t just yawn when they’re tired. Yawning can also be a signal of stress or fear. An experiment has shown that if your dog is yawning a lot around someone unfamiliar or has not met before, that’s a sign that your dog is not quite ready to meet that person.

Relaxed yawning

There is one more confusing thing. Your dog can yawn even if he is with his owner. If this is the situation, they will often yawn when you do out of empathy. As a result, if you’re yawning and your dog starts doing the same too, that’s not a bad thing at all. Moreover, one more thing you should take care about. Sometimes you will be near other dogs that you do not own. If you’re not yawning and an unfamiliar dog is, you might have a problem.

Your dog sits on your feet

Resultado de imagen para shar pei cute

If your dog sits on your feet that could mean many things. One thing can be that if your dog has separation anxiety that could be a way that your dog is using to comfort himself being close to you. Sometimes dogs are possesive, that why your dog sits on your feet when hi is jealous and is trying to show you are his. In addition, maybe your dog sits on your feet just because he loves to be near to you.

Wanting to sleep in your bed.

Resultado de imagen para shar pei bed

Sometimes your dog wants to sleep in your bed. This is more related with wanting to be with you than how nice your bed is. If you suffer from allergies, do not worry most vets don’t see any harm in it.

Tongue flicking

Resultado de imagen para shar pei tongue

This could happen when the “dog’s tongue extends straight out of the mouth and retracts again immediately.” This is often a signal of discomfort, either with an unfamiliar person or unwanted contact that’s making the dog anxious. If you hav a submissive dog, this can also be his way of trying to appease a more dominant presence.

Your dog leaning on you

If your dog leans on you means that he is asking for attention and affection. Also is a way they feel safer.

Staring at you when you leave the house.

Crazy Legs

Resultado de imagen para shar pei sleeping funny

We know you have seen your dog sleeping on his back with the four legs up, so that position has the name of crazy legs. Researchers say that dogs who sleep in this position tend to be submisive and feell vulnerable. With his for legs up, his stomach is completly exposed. If your dogs sleep in this way it means that they are very independent and laidback. Whatever the case, when a dog is doing the Crazy Legs, they are letting their family know that they feel 100% comfortable and safe.

This position is very common in pups. It has been said by researchers of Next Gen Dog that this position it is reserved just for naps. However, some dogs use for sleeping during long periods of time. The position is more relaxing than the Curly Sue and once again demonstrates full trust with the dog feeling comfortable enough to leave their tummy exposed.

Dogs tend to do this position to wake up eassier than other positions and continue the activities they were doing before. As a result, the Superman position is definitely an indicator of a bouncy, energetic canine!

 

Passed Out

Resultado de imagen para shar pei sleeping funny

This one is very similar to crazy legs sleeping position. Scientists say the passed out position may be a sign of an overheating. This is because a dog’s paws contain sweat glands, and their belly has the least amount of fur on their body, ultimately making this position super effective for cooling off. Be aware, however; if your dog has their paws curled over their chest while ‘Passed Out”, they are telling you they don’t want to be bothered. So, take the risk if you want to wake them up.

 

Belly Curl

The Belly Curl is similar to the Curly Sue, except the dog’s body isn’t as tightly wound up. If your dog is sleeping using belly curl, they may not be getting the best sleep quality. According to Dog’s Best Life, when dogs are sleeping in this way muscles are not allowed to be relaxed at all, so they can not enter in a deep sleep, REM stage of sleep. Dogs who belly curl tend to be gentle and shy— but some are the most adventurous of the pack!

 

Curly Sue

When a dogs sleep in this way they are partaking in (what we like to call) the ‘Curly Sue’ position. Because the Curly Sue allows a dog to have their belly protected and share heat in a pack, it is the most common position amongst wolves and wild dogs, according to Dogs Best Life. If your pup is doing the Curly Sue, it likely means they are either a bit cold or apprehensive about something, like a new environment or people. But don’t worry. Joyful, independent pups often sleep like this too— it’s just so cozy!

 

Back to Back

This position is very different than the others because it tells you how your dog sleeps in relation to either yourself or another pooch. If you have many dogs, you might have seen your dogs sleeping in a back to back possiton. This is because is an instinctual way for a dog to show you are one of the pack, one important member in his life. Moreover, back-to-back sleeping is a way for your pup to bond with you, showing you that they can trust you 100%.
