Parson Russell Terrier | Dog training AidsNamed for the respected huntsman Rev. John Russell, the Parson Russell Terrier was first bred in the south of England in the mid-1800s to hunt red fox. Traditionally, the Parson followed the fox underground to flush him out for the hunter. Authorities claim that after Rev. Russell’s death some of his bloodlines were crossed with the Welsh Corgi and other terrier breeds, creating a different type dog, the "Jack Russell Terrier." The parent club for the breed requested a name change from Jack Russell to Parson Russell Terrier.

Alaskan Malamute

Alaskan Malamute | Dog Bark CollarsWhat a strange dog character a Malamute has. Dog bark collars is a must.

The eyes are of medium size, dark brown, small, and almond in shape and are obliquely placed in the skull. The dog holds an image of a wolf but with a proud, sweet expression. Dark eyes are preferred. Blue eyes are a fault according to the written standard. The feet are large, of the snowshoe type with tough pads. The thick, coarse double coat averages one to three inches in length and comes in a range of light gray to intermediate shadings of black, sable and shadings of sable to red.

Alaskan Malamute | Dog DoorsThe Alaskan Malamute is extremely loyal and intelligent, sweet and most affectionate toward it's master. Great with children who are old enough to play with him safely. If their canine instincts are met, they mature into a dignified and mellow adult dog. They are very friendly and therefore are not suitable as a guard dog. Malamutes are happiest living outdoors as long as they receive enough companionship, but they also enjoy living indoors where their human "pack" lives. Without firm leadership and daily mental and physical exercise, these dogs may become destructive nuisances, acting like a big, rambunctious puppy. In one case, a single dog ruined an entire living room of furniture valued at $15,000 in just three hours!

Alaskan Malamute | Dog FurnitureMalamutes love outdoor activities and even do well in obedience with firm encouragement. Although it can be difficult to train Malamutes for formal obedience, it is not particularly hard to train them to be well-mannered because they love to please. Males can be very dominant. This breed needs the humans around him to be firm, confident and consistent pack leaders. Some dogs may be difficult to housebreak. This breed is a thrifty feeder and needs less food than you might expect. However they do tend to wolf down whatever is offered, which can lead to obesity and bloat. Malamutes are quiet compared to most dogs but they do like to howl and dig. This breed should be supervised around unfamiliar small animals, as they have a strong prey instinct. This does not mean they are not good with small animals. Some Malamutes have been known to raise small kittens as their own. Both sexes can be combative with other dogs, especially with the same sex and breed and firm handling and training are necessary to curve this. Proper socialization with people and other dogs is imperative. Obedience training is highly recommended.

Otterhound | Dog HousesThis unique dog definitely needs to have a Dog Retriever Trainer to work all day.

The Otterhound, a scent hound, is unique among hounds because of his rough, double coat and substantial webbed feet. He uses these features to hunt on both land and water. With his large, strong body and inquisitive nose, the Otterhound is willing to work all day. The coat may be any color or combination of colors.

Otterhound | Hunting Dog Collars OnlineWhen otters in England began preying on fish in the rivers and streams, the English used the Otterhound to solve the problem. Although otter hunting is now banned, the breed still exists. His origins are somewhat shrouded in mystery, but many believe the breed originated somewhere in France and is similar to their Vende hound. Otterhounds first arrived in the United States around 1900.

Otterhound | Dog retriever trainerAmiable, boisterous and even-tempered, the Otterhound enjoys his family, but may not be the best breed for toddlers or a frail elderly person due to his size. Exercise should be on leash or in a fenced yard due to the breed’s tendency to follow his nose. Weekly brushing and occasional bathing will prevent mats in the coat, although owners shouldn’t be surprised if the breed’s large, hairy paws or beard collect mud or other objects and need to be cleaned more frequently. The Otterhound is stubborn, so training may take longer, but the breed can learn. Owners should be prepared for his "hound voice," a deep bay that neighbors may not enjoy.
