Content and care

Correct care for fluffy puppies and adult dogs is a whole complex of events, allowing the pet to maintain a neat presentable species. Russian with long wool needs a periodic hygienic haircut at least 1 time in half. It is not recommended to promine the coat of coat, if there is less than a month before the exhibition: it will not have time to grow up to the standard length. All types of haircuts of the terrier in this case are divided into several types.

  • Model. A fantasy approach allows both to do with fibilosses, so creating unusual patterns on the body. In addition, you can make the original hairstyle using decorative rhinestones, hairpins, weaving. This will also easily cope with a professional groomer who knows the subtleties of the breed.
  • Hygienic. Removes the animal-hindered wool, long ads are shortened. In some cases, the haircut is made before medical manipulations, taking into account the peculiarities of operational intervention.

Despite the fact that in general, Russian is a healthy and strong dog, it is worth paying attention to the conditions of its content.

You need to avoid drafts, protect your pet from the height jumps. An animal is contraindicated nervous shocks, at home is better to create a calm atmosphere. I walked the breed representatives moderate, they are easily trained to visit the tray and do not tend to “miss” by him, maintain cleanliness in the house.

What and how to feed?

Russian feeding is better to organize in the same way as it was organized in the nursery. If the puppy is already accustomed to natural food, you can not translate it to dry food. Representatives of this breed perceive perfectly Beef and poultry meat. They need to grind them before serving. You can also use by-products, once a week to give ocean boiled fish.

Toy Terrier perceive vegetables in the diet. Little dogs are well eating carrots and beets, cucumbers, cabbage (you can drink vegetable oil). Apples and pears are suitable as a delicacy, sliced ​​on banana pieces. The share of cereals in the composition of the power reaches 30%. It is better to choose hypoallergenic low-calorie options: rice, buckwheat, oats. Not too useful toams corn, wheat.

Cottage cheese, kefir, Prostokwash give no more than 2 times a week. Excluded to receive additional feeding during the day, it is impossible to allow eating found on the street.

Among the natural food, which is for the Russian Toya in the area of ​​a strict prohibition, you can highlight spices, sausages and sausages, chicken egg protein. Does not bring the benefit of a dog nuts, butter, sour cream and other high-calorie products. WThunderstorm Health Dogs carry pickles, smoked.

A balanced diet can be provided by a pet due to the proper selection of dry feed.

Compact animal needs In specialized nutrition, taking into account its needs in calories, beneficial substances. Cheap Economy Code can harm the dog’s health. But super premium and holistic rations are deprived of this shortage. They have everything you need, you only need to take into account the level of mobility, the age category.

The frequency of adult animal feedings is not more than 2 times a day. Russian is inclined to obesity, it is important not to exceed the recommended calorie. Puppies up to 3 months are fed 5-6 times a day, night and late meals can be saved. Until six months, food issuance is produced 3-4 times a day, by the year the dog should eat twice a day.

How to educate?

The upbringing of a Moscow long-haired Toy Terrier or, as it is now called, Russian, begins with the development of basic content principles in the house. Pet must learn where his place is located, bowls with food and water, respond to the nickname and call of the owner. It is from the first days to start working on the teaching dog to a tray or diaper – In puppy age, this is much ease of pet content.

The basic course of training by Russian IU is needed to increase discipline. It will be enough to undergo a UGS course under the guidance of an experienced instructor. It will be quite difficult to achieve obedience from the dog. The resourceful to the terrier will simply schitrit or will be frankly bored during classes. Fast achieving success in training will definitely not be, but when using game techniques, you can teach a pet mass of interesting tricks.

How to cope with behavior problems?

Russian TOIs are light-affordable dogs, on any exterior stimuli responding to perky lem. Forgive such behavior, the animal is not worth the animal, but you need to act much thinner than with the owners of a coarser constitution. PSA from Laya will not work with neither caressing nor threats. The optimal will be a specific action plan.

  • With the manifestation of undesirable behavior, the dog should be strictly abandoned “Fu!”Or” can not!”.
  • Maximum that you can apply from the options of physical exposure, it is a light flop with a newspaper.
  • Puppy, barking to attract attention, you can ignore. With an adult dog it does not work.
  • Unwanted physical reactions can be extinguished by distracting attention. If the pet is not fighting in hysterics, it can work.

From an excess of feelings, Russian Toi can be slightly biting their owners. When trying to show emotions in this way it is worth expressing indignation by intonations, but not to punish the animal physically. Any joint classes should be interrupted immediately. Targetful communication with the owner of this will be enough to reconsider its behavior.
