It’s official!—Summertime is here! A time when Alaskans rejoice, and when Arizonans hide in their air-conditioned homes. But what of dogs?—what do they like to do in the summer? The reality for most dogs is that their existence is pretty closely tied to the realities of their owner’s lifestyle.
Face it: As a dog owner, you will inevitably go through many pet accessories as they break down over time due to soiling and wear & tear. Your pup is growing after all, and exploring the environment all around them, and so they’re going to need accessories—leashes, harnesses, collars, etc.—that will go the distance with them as they venture out into the world.
You’ve probably also heard of Schutzhund, (German for “protection dog”) a sport for dogs which developed in Germany in the early 1900s and where all the commands are given in German. As Schutzhund requires canines to carry out complex maneuvers through obstacles based on their owner’s commands, the sharp consonant sounds of the German language (often single syllable) are ideal for communicating clearly and eliciting the desired results.
