Facts that are known only to owners of large dogs
Our world is divided into two groups: lovers of large dogs or small ones. Of course, any dogs are wonderful, but everyone has a preference when it comes to pet size.
If you gave preference to a large breed, then you probably already felt on yourself the specifics of such a dog in the house and agree with many facts about them:
1. Once tiny, they quickly become giants.
The word "quickly" even slightly reduces the rate of their growth. Here are just a baby puppy sleeping peacefully at his feet, and then he already occupies the floor of your bed.
2. Danger to the table.
For dogs of high stature, the table, of course, is not at all unattainable. From time to time, they may accidentally sweep something from it with their tail.
3. Eternal comparisons with dogs in films.
Scooby-doo or Marmadyuk, associations of people with large dogs are not very diverse.
4. Big dogs = a lot of movement. Or is it still not?
Here you can argue, because everything depends more on the breed and its individual characteristics than on size. For example, the dogs were originally guards and sat in one place for a long time, waiting for the intruder. Therefore, not all large dogs need very long walks and physical activities.
5. Bear hugs.
This is probably the best thing in big dogs. They can hug professionally. But even here they can make a mistake, for example, not to calculate that they weigh more than you, and to inadvertently try to crush you, sitting on your knees.
6. Food - an item of considerable expenses.
Without this, nowhere - large breeds eat more than small ones.A 10-pound bag of dog food will not last long.
7. On the street, you may need more than one bag.
What is there to hide? More dog -> more food -> more waste. It is better to grab several bags for cleaning on the street at once, so as not to get into an awkward situation.
8. Who walks whom?
Of course, it’s almost impossible to get along and walk with a big dog without training. But, even if your pet is obedient, you are still not always immune from spontaneous pursuit.
