Grooming Of The German Shepherd

German Shepherd is, without doubt, the most popular dog in the world. Proof of its fame is the fact that for almost a hundred years it has invariably remained one of the best-known breeds in all countries.

Very intelligent, faithful and affectionate, it is very good to be with the family, including children and the elderly. It is also an excellent guardĀ dog and easy to educate and train.

Having a pet requires frequent attention to our animal and fulfill certain necessary care so that it is in perfect condition.

Care of the German Shepherd

There are different cares and preventions that must be taken into account when having a German Shepherd at home.

The first thing we have to do from their childhood is to educate him to live in harmony with humans and other animals. This teaching should be from puppies because it is the ideal time to learn these good behaviors.

From puppy it is important that we teach them to be neat, not to damage the garden, to walk on a leash, to be patient and wait, to interact correctly with other dogs and with other animals.

How to groom a German Shepherd

Before we know how to bathe a German shepherd, we have to know how often to groom long haired german shepherds? We speak first of the grooming because it is important to remove all the dead hair before to clean the skin and fur much better during washing.

Also, if we do not remove this layer it is likely to become entangled. You should pay special attention to the chest, the thighs and the neck, which is where the hair becomes more caked and tangled.

The best brush for German shepherds is one of the fine metal bristles and card-like joints. These combs are the most suitable for medium-haired dogs that tend to release a lot of hair, helping to remove all the loose layer in an effective way.

Brush the mantle from the neck to the end of the tail, always in the same direction as the hair. If it accumulates too much in the comb, clean it to be able to continue removing the dead hair.

To avoid an excessive fall and not have to spend all day sweeping the ground, we must take good care of the coat of the German shepherd. It is very important that at least 2 times a week, you spend a while of the day to pass the comb to your pet.

Do not forget to also check your nails, cutting them whenever necessary.

How to bathe a German shepherd

Once brushed and removed all loose hair will proceed to wash. The bath should only be when the dog is dirty or needs it so as not to spoil its coat. If you want to wash the German shepherd more frequently, once a month is the maximum advised.

Wet the whole body of the German shepherd with water, avoiding the area of the face and ears. Always pay attention to the temperature of the water: it must be warm, never cold or hot; in the summer you can bathe the German shepherd with fresher water, to refresh him, and in warmer winter so he does not get cold.

Choose a suitable pet shampoo. With well-wet hair, apply shampoo on the entire body and lather well all the hair.

Rinse deeply to remove soap residue from the entire body; in this way, you will prevent the hair from drying out or having discomfort in the skin. Then you only have to dry your German shepherd with a towel and, if necessary, with a hairdryer.

After the bath, you will have to brush again the German shepherd to remove the rest of hair that has been released during the wash.

Remember that not only do you need to know how to bathe and brush a German shepherd so that his fur looks nice and bright, you must also take care of his feed with a quality feed so that he is healthy and his hair reflects it.

The future of batteries: What to know

Batteries are today a source of energy that is here to stay.

Batteries are very good. In fact, it was good for everyone for whom the batteries allowed the discovery of new inventions. In the case that concerns us, we will forget them. I know, we will constantly advance.

Most batteries are by definition are usually not rechargeable, it is neither ecological nor practical to do this.

Rechargeable batteries

Then come the batteries that can be recharged. We know the classic “rechargeable batteries” type NI-mH. They can be very practical in some cases, as they are often of standard AA or AAA format, and are found almost everywhere. The only problem is investing in quality Ni-mHs like those of the Sanyo Eneloop brand as well as in a real charger. For the record, it is often he who is responsible for the drop in quality and the autonomy of your rechargeable batteries. This will surely be the subject of a next post.

It’s very important these days to get a good rechargeable flashlight in order to help get yourself out of some tough spots.

Li-ion batteries

You will enter the world of luminous power, you need a stable energy source, and one that holds it down. The Li-ion batteries are not well known but possess good power.

No charge memory, no need to discharge the battery to recharge it
No very little self-discharge as with other batteries. It is rather nice not to have to control the charge of the stored batteries before an exit.

For my part, my choice goes to the tactical format, more widespread, and it is with this one that I like. The size surprises at the start, but they are very fast. Level autonomy, everything will depend on your lamp. You will have to equip yourself with a specific charger. These are not particularly expensive (from very good to $30 maximum) and they are a very worthwhile investment.

5 tips to clean your dishwasher

Even if it is intended for cleaning, the dishwasher also needs to be cleaned from time to time. Here are 5 tips to remove dirt and bad odors.

1. The rotating arms of the dishwasher may become dirty. With a toothpick, tweezers, or other sharp object, remove any pieces of food that clog small holes.

2. The outline of the door and the seal of the appliance should be rubbed with a sponge and a general purpose cleaner. Since these areas are not affected by water and cleaning products during washing, they accumulate dirt. Exposed to moisture, they can become areas of accumulation of mold or fungi.

3. The various baskets of the dishwasher can be cleaned simply with a toothbrush and white vinegar.

4. To get rid of unpleasant odors, cleaning is continued by operating the appliance unladen. For this washing cycle, sodium bicarbonate is placed in the soap dispenser. It is also possible to use a cup of white vinegar, which is placed in the bottom of the vat before starting the appliance.

5. Most dishwashers have a filter that must be cleaned regularly and optionally replaced. It is advisable to follow the instructions in the appliance manual for this cleaning, but normally the filter can be rinsed with water and rubbed with a small brush. Do not forget to unplug the machine if you have to unscrew some parts of the machine to access the filter. We take our precautions!

Cant afford a dishwasher?

If you don’t have the money for a dishwasher then you can always just use water from the tap to blast the dirt off. Both ways, we think will work fine depending on your budget. Either way, though you will need to get a kitchen faucet, we recommend the Delta 9178 for pretty much anybody.
