The importance of a leash

 

The leash and the collar, are the accessories that must absolutely be part of the initial "kit" of a dog. Leaving the dog free to run, chasing his instinct seems like a very natural and positive thing, but it can be dangerous.

Your four-legged friend may not always respond to your call and be overwhelmed by the instinct to chase a potential prey. Without a leash he could run away, get lost and in the worst case be hit by a car. This is especially true for the puppy, initially unwilling to obey promptly and for those subjects who live in the city.

The leash also plays a fundamental role in training. Thanks to its correct use the dog will be accustomed not to pull during the walk and to perceive through the connection the direction in which to move. 

Choosing a leash is therefore a very important task, it is necessary to evaluate the different characteristics to decide which is the most suitable. 

 

How to choose the best product

 

Choosing a leash might seem less important than choosing a collar, but do not be fooled. There are some precautions that you must follow in order to ensure an appropriate and comfortable choice for you and your pet. Remember that a comfortable leash will be as important to him as it is to you.

 

Main types

 

There are different types of leash on the market, which can be classified according to the model such as: 

  • Standard model: it is the leash that everyone typically imagines, can be whole or intertwined, of different thicknesses and lengths. They can also consist of materials that reflect light especially for those who take the dog in the evening in the dark.
  • Roll-up model: despite having little control over the dog, it is among the most popular. The retractable leash adapts to different lengths and is especially suitable for dogs that are already trained or well-behaved.
  • Adjustable model:  this type of leash can vary the length according to the needs like the roller shutter but allowing you to have a greater control of the animal as with the standard one.

There are also particular features that can simplify the owner's daily life, such as the case of:

  • Double leash.. Those who own two dogs may find it more useful to have a double leash that forks into two towards the end so you can hook them both.
  • Hands-free leash.  This type of leash allows you to have your hands free thanks to a belt that attaches him to the life of the owner.

 

The most used materials

 

  • Leather: it is considered a high quality, very resistant material. It may initially be a bit stiff, but over time it naturally softens.
  • Rope: usually the string leashes are braided to be more resistant to dog bites.
  • Nylon: is the most popular material among dog lovers mainly due to its low cost and its good resistance. The nylon leashes can be of all sizes and colors.
  • Chain: metal leashes may look beautiful, but they are not always the best choice for the pet. It is always necessary to evaluate the weight of the metal, as if the leash will be too heavy it will be detrimental to the health of the dog. Always evaluate this factor before buying it.

 

Length

 

There are leashes of different lengths.

Usually the longer ones are used for walking and short training, but everything depends on the comfort of the dog and the owner. It is also necessary to check the country in which you live, which does not have particular leash's regulations.

In general, consider that for puppies and small dogs are preferable soft leash rope, leather or nylon, if you prefer the chain, try to choose a very light.

For large dogs, instead, choose a very strong and resistant leash that will not be easily damaged.

 

If you still have doubts, ask for advice to your vet or your dealer. Surely, they will help you out.

The importance of collar

 

Collar is an essential accessory for the safety of the dog, especially for those who live in the city. When a pet becomes part of our life, he immediately becomes part of our family, especially emotionally. Therefore our first concern is to defend him and protect him from any unpleasant situation. It will be necessary to  accustom the pet to wear the collar since he's a puppy, so you will avoid walking with a dog who is annoyed and refuse to walk.

 

The 3 main functions of collar

 

First of all a collar attached to a leash allows you to walk with your dog, preventing him to run away when chasing something or going too far away from you. Our friends react instinctively and may not notice the dangers around them, so the owner must secure them, especially in a city.

Collars are also useful as a support to which the ID tag with owner's name and number can be attached. In case of loss, this tag will represent the best and easiest way to find quickly the owner.

Visit "MyFamily" official site or contact licensed dealers: you can buy a tag, choosing it among a wide range of collections and customize it for free in a few minutes. Each MyFamily collar has a useful Tag Holder, easing the use of this important accessory. Moreover, each MyFamily collar comes with the Always Ready D-ring that comes back into position by itself, easing the anchoring of the leash.

Collar is also an essential accessory for training, especially for puppies. There are collars specifically created with this function, while others are for daily use and guarantee, along with leash, the right guidance of the puppy still in a learning phase. It is clear that buying a collar is an important choice, because the safety of your faithful 4-legged friend will depend on it. To make a good choice, you should make sure that collar is: 

 

MyFamily Porta-Tag

MyFamily "Always Ready"

D-ring

Always_ready_Dring_mezzoanello_MyFamily.png
  • strong, that it does not independently or accidentally come off under any circumstances,
  • comfortable, it must be made of a material which is suitable for extended contact with the skin of the pet
  • light, too heavy collars could strain the pet and even cause health problems. Please, consider also that not all dogs are identical and that not all breeds have the same dimensions and characteristics.

 

 

How to choose the right product

 

Pet market offers a wide range of products of any kind; therefore, when we talk about a collar, we should have already a clear idea of what we are looking for. A rushed choice could damage our dog.

Some important elements to consider:

  • Knowing the breed of the dog is a good start.
    A quick search will allow you to see which products are recommended for that type of dog. Some collar manufacturers put on the label some additional information, such as the breed they suggest for that kind of collar. However, this method is not often correct, because every dog is different and you can run the risk to buy something that would not be suitable for your 4-legged friend, and that would exclude all crossbred dogs.
  • The size of the neck is the first important element to consider. The circumference of the animal's neck must be measured to establish its size. Please, consider that the collar should not be too tight, because it could cause breathing problems, fur loss in that area, irritation and dermatitis. Obviously it isn't a good idea to leave it too wide, because the pet could accidentally take it off. The right size is that in which there is a two-finger space between the collar and the dog's neck.
  • The pet's fur should not be underestimated. We must make a distinction between the different types of fur: thick, short, long ... Not only the size of the neck is important, but also the extra centimeters due to the fur.
  • The age of the dog. If you have a puppy, please consider the speed of his growth; the most suitable accessory in this case is a collar adaptable to the dimensions of the neck as it grows. However, please remember that you may need to buy several collars before your dog grows up. It is advisable to check the space between the collar and the puppy's neck every week to prevent it from causing him problems.
  • Regular activities are an important element when choosing this accessory. A dynamic and strong dog used to playing outdoors will need a strong collar that does not limit his free movements but can withstand any shock. A dog used to taking a bath often will need a collar that will not easily get damaged in contact with water.

Remember not to let your dog wear a still wet collar, as it could irritate his skin and help the proliferation of some germs responsible for infections.

The width of the collar is another important element to consider as well as its length. The wider a collar is, the more it will offer steadiness and reduce the pressure on the neck, especially as regards big dogs. 

 

Various types of collars on the market

 

There are several types of collars on the market today and are mainly divided into training collars and collars for daily use. Some training collars need a steady and skilled hand and should be avoided if you do not have the right skills and experience. They will therefore not be reported in this list as this is a guide for new dog's owners.

Band collar: it is the most common collar, made of a very strong and long-lasting band. The most commonly used materials for manufacturing are leather and nylon. The first material will be more durable; at the beginning it will be a bit stiff, but will become softer over time . This material is suitable for dogs with short or medium coat, while a model with some padding is recommended for dogs with long fur. Nylon, on the other hand, allows the collar to be used in all kinds of outdoor activities: it will be resistant to rain, dirt and easily washable!

Detachable collars:  they are similar to band collars, but unlike them, they are equipped with a safety that can be opened only with a high effort. These collars are useful but pay attention to the situations in which the non-immediate removal of the collar could be dangerous for the pet. They are very suitable for puppies who have still to get used to wearing this accessory and that could pull to get rid of it for fear, by getting hurt.

Martingale collar:  this collar consists of a main arch and a small cord that closes the arch with a circuit. This is a safe way to prevent the dog from taking it off even when it stays on the free neck during rest. They are particularly suitable for dogs with a long or thick neck and a small head.

Throttle collar: it consists of a simple chain or of different materials (leather, nylon, metal) with two rings on each end. This collar tightens according to the strength with which the dog pulls and it is impossible that he can take it off by himself. Attention must however be paid, as this collar is suitable for adult dogs who are already trained and unused to pull, since puppies or lively dogs could fidget by feeling the pressure on the neck, pull more and more because of fear, up to hurt themselves.

 

I hope this guide has been helpful. In case you are not sure yet of which model to choose for your dog, ask your vet of or your trusted shopkeeper. This way you will have a solution from a skilled person who can clarify all your doubts.

        • Hachiko
          Hachikō was the Akita Inu of Hidesaburō Ueno, a Japanese professor of Tokyo Imperial University, worldwide known for his remarkable loyalty. Often called Hachi, was born in 1923 in Ōdate but lived in Shibuya, Tokyo. Every morning Hachiko walked with his owner to the Shibuya train station and came back in the afternoon to wait for his return. Sadly, Ueno suddenly died during a lesson in 1925, but Hachiko still waited for his return at the station each day until his death. As time passed, his story spread throughout Japan, so much so that many people started gathering every day to the Shibuya station just to cuddle and giving him food. In 1934 a bronze statue was erected on the entrance of Shibuya station, as a sign of admiration for his loyalty, and another one in Ōdate, his birthplace. He waited for nine long years for his owner to return, until his death in 1935. When Hachiko died, the news occupied the main Japanese newspapers' headlines and the government declared a national day of mourning to celebrate his legendary faithfulness as a national symbol of loyalty. Every year on the 8th of March, he's commemorated with a celebration at Shibuya station. In 2015, on the occasion of the 80th anniversary, a new statue was unveiled on University Tokyo ground resembling the rejoicing reunion of Ueno and Hachiko. 

    • Laika
      Laika, whose real name was Kudriavka, was a stray mixed-breed dog, famous for being the first living being in history to orbit the Hearth and first animal in space. In 1957 she was selected to embark on board of the Soviet Sputnik 2 spacecraft, but sadly never returned. To commemorate her unforgettable gesture in 1977 a commemorative plaque to her contribution to the space program was installed at the Institute for Aviation and Space Medicine at Star City, just outside Moscow. In the following years, Laika was commemorated in other ways around the world, in stamps, chocolate brand and even music bands, that dedicated to her songs and even used her name for their band.

        • Balto
          Balto was a Siberian Husky and sled dog, famous to have been the winner of the most important sleigh rides in Alaska in the early 1900s. They both became heroes around the world after the outbreak of diphtheria in Alaska town of Nome on January 19, 1925. At that time, arose the emergency to deliver the medicine in time, since the small town of Nome couldn't be reached by plane, by boat and neither by train, since the nearest station was 1000km far. For that reason, it was organized a multiple dog sled run, also known as "The serum race", to transport the serum to Nome. The winning team was the one led by Balto. Balto became a celebrity, and a statue was erected in New York City's Central Park on December 17, 1925.
        • Argo
          Argos is Ulysses's dog, the hero of Homer's epic poem the Odyssey. We know little about him but enough to appreciate his unwavering loyalty. Argo waited for 20 long years his beloved owner in Itaca and when old and infirm saw Ulysses for the last time, he passed away happily.

              • Rex
                Rex is a German shepherd, the famous character of the Austrian 1994 TV series "Inspector Rex". Rex is the police dog working together with the team of Vienna Kriminalpolizei homicide unit to solve crimes. Intelligent, active and ready to risk his life to save the others. From 1994 to the present, several German shepherds have played this beloved character and many interpretations have been made around the world.

                  • Lassie
                    Lassie is the name of the famous Colli breed dog, leading character of the famous movie "Lassie Come Home", in which acts a teen Elizabeth Taylor. The story of Lassie is based upon the 1940 novel Lassie Come-Home by Eric Knight. Lovely long-haired Collie, Lassie lives many adventures to find his way back to his beloved family and Joe, his best friends. The movie was so successful that in the following decades' many versions of the story were filmed all around the world.


                            • Toto
                              He was Dorithy's terrier puppy from the famous movie "The Wizard of Oz". This dog had remarkable success expecially after the movie was out in 1939, so much that as a result it had been created a series of books dedicated to him: Toto in Oz (1986) and Toto of Oz (2006).


                          • Einstein
                            Do you remember Einstein, Emmett Lathrop "Doc" Brown's four-legged friend from "Back to Future" Trilogy? Between Martyn's time travels and the time-traveling DeLorean automobile, there's also Einstein, Emmet Brown's dog, used as "test" for his new invention, sending him to the future for a minute.

        • Balto
          Balto was a Siberian Husky and sled dog, famous to have been the winner of the most important sleigh rides in Alaska in the early 1900s. They both became heroes around the world after the outbreak of diphtheria in Alaska town of Nome on January 19, 1925. At that time, arose the emergency to deliver the medicine in time, since the small town of Nome couldn't be reached by plane, by boat and neither by train, since the nearest station was 1000km far. For that reason, it was organized a multiple dog sled run, also known as "The serum race", to transport the serum to Nome. The winning team was the one led by Balto. Balto became a celebrity, and a statue was erected in New York City's Central Park on December 17, 1925.

This dog had remarkable success expecially after the movie was out in 1939, so much that as a result it had been created a series of books dedicated to him: Toto in Oz (1986) and Toto of Oz (2006).


                          • Einstein
                            Do you remember Einstein, Emmett Lathrop "Doc" Brown's four-legged friend from "Back to Future" Trilogy?

Best tips for choosing the perfect name for your dog

 

In the headlong rush to search the perfect dog's name, you have to keep in mind few important rules that will help you and your four-legged friend:

  • It's better to opt for a short and clear name or one that could be shortened to a maximum of two syllables. Dogs don't recognize letters but recognize sounds, so a short and clear name will be easier for them to distinguish it from other sounds.
  • It's recommended to avoid names that sound like obedience words or command because your dog could easily get confused. 
  • If you already have a pet, avoid giving to the newcomer the same name adding small changes such as Walt, Walt Junior, Walt The Second ect. Not only you will confuse the puppy, but you will also show him very little respect.
  • Once you have chosen the name, try to avoid as much as possible to mangle it, change it or use a lot of nicknames because your pet will have a hard time understanding you especially if it still trying to get used to his name.

The abandonment of dogs is a very serious world problem. The World Health Organization estimates that despite the frequent awareness campaigns against the mistreatment and abandonment of animals, in Italy, more than 50,000 dogs are abandoned every year and  stray dogs are more than 200,000 million worldwide. In some countries, straying leads also to an increase of some dangerous diseases such as rabies, because of their easy spread.
In many countries of the world, abandoning a dog is a punishable offence: those who break the law, must pay not only a fine for abandonment, but also for possible damages caused.
 
Despite these rules, there are many abandoned dogs.
Abandonments are more frequent in some particular periods of the year:
  • in the summer when the so-called "owners" do not want to give up their holidays and the animal becomes "troublesome";
  • during Christmas holidays, when the family realizes the inability to manage a dog received as a gift, especially for children.
  • in autumn, when some dogs are considered as unsuitable for hunting by their owners-hunters.
 
80% of abandoned dogs lived in a flat, so they risk even more mistreatment, hunger and incidents, because they are absolutely not able to self-manage.
An abandoned dog unfortunately represents also a danger to others for several reasons:
- having to find food by himself, he might become violent, after many days that he does not eat;
- many dogs are abandoned along roads and motorways and this is a serious danger for themselves and for the others. A frightened, scared animal who is running away can cause serious road accidents.
 
Exactly for these reasons, it is useful to know how to behave if you find an abandoned dog or if you are in one of the situations described above.
 
The 6 steps to take when you find an abandoned dog.
 
First of all, it is important to observe carefully his mood. He could be dangerous if he's very hungry, scared by unknown people or very distressed and frightened. If he does not show any particular signs of aggression, move close to him slowly trying not to frighten him.
Once you are close to him, you should check that the animal has no clear injuries. In case of serious injuries, it will be necessary to call the Local Veterinary Service of the Local Health Authority. Never give any medicine, always rely on experts.
In case he squeezed into a space and could not set himself free, it will be necessary to call the Firemen .
After making sure that he is physically well, it will be necessary to check if there is the identification tag attached to the collar or to the harness.
If the owner cannot be found out, it will be necessary to check if there's a microchip. It will therefore be necessary to go to a veterinarian or to the  authorities in charge, such as the Veterinary Service of the Local Health Authority that have the proper reader and will be able to identify the code of the microchip and the corresponding data. Every dog should, by law, be registered to the canine registry, have a microchip and thus have an identifiable owner.
In any case, it is important to report the recovery as soon as possible to the local police or to the traffic police, in case you are in a motorway.
 
If you see someone who abandons a dog, how should you behave?
 
The first step in this case is to collect as much information as possible to identify the person in question. The most important one is the car license plate, the safest and easiest way to identify the responsible person.
After having marked all that could be useful, please contact the Police.
 
Abandoning a dog is a cruel and inhuman action. Dogs love us unconditionally and we don't always do enough to deserve their love.

Winter with its harsh temperatures is approaching and it is interesting to know some breeds that are best suited to this type of climate. Some have been specially selected to have characteristics, linked in particular to the type of hair, such as to create a greater cold protection than others.
We see the 5 that most love the cold and the snow and seem to find in these adverse weather conditions a pleasant and ideal environment.
 
The Mountain Dogs of the Pyrenees or Patou are very faithful livestock guardians, accustomed to low mountain temperatures and snow thanks to their thick hair. It is a canine breed belonging to the group of mountain dogs that traditionally performs the task of guardian of the flock on the French side of the Pyrenees. On the Spanish side of the mountain range, in the region of Aragon, the breed of the Mastiff of the Pyrenees developed from common ancestors. The mountain dog of the Pyrenees is not to be confused with the shepherd of the Pyrenees, his "colleague" of work, in charge of leading the flock (herding pastor), while the task of the mountain dog of the Pyrenees is to defend it (guardian shepherd ).
 
The Siberian Husky are instead Spitz-type dogs (along with numerous other breeds such as Norwegian Elkhounds, Keeshonds, Samoyed, Akita and Malamute). They are dogs known for their resistance to cold climates, thanks to their Arctic origins and for this reason they are chosen to tow the sledges on the snow. All Spitz dogs like the Husky have adapted themselves to the Nordic climates, thanks to their ability to heat insulation and a thick, water-repellent coat. If this happens, the ears of the dogs of this primitive race are small, a natural adaptation to avoid freezing.
The Siberian Husky, in particular, is a very robust subject, with a double layer of thickness that allows it to withstand the most extreme winter conditions.
It seems that even in the character these hairy are a bit '"cold": very independent, generally wary if not educated and socialized from an early age.
 
Even the Akita love winter climates. The breed was selected for guarding and hunting in the cold and mountainous Prefecture of Akita, on the Japanese island of Honshu, where these dogs flanked the hunters. Trained for hunting, their prey was the wild boar, the deer and the Tibetan bear. They were also used for the defense of property and since 1603 as fighting dogs.
 
The San Bernardo is instead the most famous dog among the races that love the cold climate, with its soft, dense and thick fur, it is also one of the largest as mole. It can exceed 90/95 cm in height and over 100 kg in weight.
There is no other race which, with such bulk and weight, is as dynamic and athletic as the Saint Bernard. Despite its massive size, the Saint Bernard is a docile dog, very close to the human owner. If adopted by a puppy it will remain a playful for life (8/10 years on average).
San Bernardo has an excellent relationship with children, but in general it is sociable with everyone, so much so that it is also used in pet therapy, thanks to its strong but extremely balanced personality. It is also the typical working dog, used to being outdoors in cold climates. In the past he was skilled in the guard to protect the mountain territory. It has not preserved any aggressive instinct, but is able to perceive every little noise or danger very quickly. This quality meant that the mountain man chose him to help him during the snowstorms, for example to identify people in difficulty.
In the Swiss Alps, the San Bernardo dogs have often contributed to the discovery of travelers at risk of freezing during the weather. Even today, they represent a valid help for man in the mountains, in the case of avalanches, thanks to the high resistance to cold and infallible smell.
 
The Russian Black Terrier, the last we will consider, is a relatively new breed, selected by the Russian army during the Cold War years and specially bred for military work in extremely cold climates.

CURIOSITY: 5 dog breeds that love the icy winter.

Winter with its harsh temperatures is approaching and it is interesting to know some breeds that are best suited to this type of climate. Some have been specially selected to have characteristics, linked in particular to the type of hair, such as to create a greater cold protection than others.
We see the 5 that most love the cold and the snow and seem to find in these adverse weather conditions a pleasant and ideal environment.
 
The Mountain Dogs of the Pyrenees or Patou are very faithful livestock guardians, accustomed to low mountain temperatures and snow thanks to their thick hair. It is a canine breed belonging to the group of mountain dogs that traditionally performs the task of guardian of the flock on the French side of the Pyrenees. On the Spanish side of the mountain range, in the region of Aragon, the breed of the Mastiff of the Pyrenees developed from common ancestors. The mountain dog of the Pyrenees is not to be confused with the shepherd of the Pyrenees, his "colleague" of work, in charge of leading the flock (herding pastor), while the task of the mountain dog of the Pyrenees is to defend it (guardian shepherd ).
 
The Siberian Husky are instead Spitz-type dogs (along with numerous other breeds such as Norwegian Elkhounds, Keeshonds, Samoyed, Akita and Malamute). They are dogs known for their resistance to cold climates, thanks to their Arctic origins and for this reason they are chosen to tow the sledges on the snow. All Spitz dogs like the Husky have adapted themselves to the Nordic climates, thanks to their ability to heat insulation and a thick, water-repellent coat. If this happens, the ears of the dogs of this primitive race are small, a natural adaptation to avoid freezing.
The Siberian Husky, in particular, is a very robust subject, with a double layer of thickness that allows it to withstand the most extreme winter conditions.
It seems that even in the character these hairy are a bit '"cold": very independent, generally wary if not educated and socialized from an early age.
 
Even the Akita love winter climates. The breed was selected for guarding and hunting in the cold and mountainous Prefecture of Akita, on the Japanese island of Honshu, where these dogs flanked the hunters. Trained for hunting, their prey was the wild boar, the deer and the Tibetan bear. They were also used for the defense of property and since 1603 as fighting dogs.
 
The San Bernardo is instead the most famous dog among the races that love the cold climate, with its soft, dense and thick fur, it is also one of the largest as mole. It can exceed 90/95 cm in height and over 100 kg in weight.
There is no other race which, with such bulk and weight, is as dynamic and athletic as the Saint Bernard. Despite its massive size, the Saint Bernard is a docile dog, very close to the human owner. If adopted by a puppy it will remain a playful for life (8/10 years on average).
San Bernardo has an excellent relationship with children, but in general it is sociable with everyone, so much so that it is also used in pet therapy, thanks to its strong but extremely balanced personality. It is also the typical working dog, used to being outdoors in cold climates. In the past he was skilled in the guard to protect the mountain territory. It has not preserved any aggressive instinct, but is able to perceive every little noise or danger very quickly. This quality meant that the mountain man chose him to help him during the snowstorms, for example to identify people in difficulty.
In the Swiss Alps, the San Bernardo dogs have often contributed to the discovery of travelers at risk of freezing during the weather. Even today, they represent a valid help for man in the mountains, in the case of avalanches, thanks to the high resistance to cold and infallible smell.
 
The Russian Black Terrier, the last we will consider, is a relatively new breed, selected by the Russian army during the Cold War years and specially bred for military work in extremely cold climates. Everything about him has been said: biting and aggressive dog, with a terrible and dangerous jaw force, capable of crushing a duck with a single bite. It was also called the "killer dog of the KGB". These are folkloric statements but far from reality. Today, the skills of work, loyalty, ease of training, climatic resistance and balance have remained intact in the black terrier of yesteryear. In addition, through the selection on the already established breed, the defects and aggressiveness that were present in part of the bred subjects were eliminated. It is a docile and sensitive dog, even if it does not hesitate to turn into a deadly weapon if it senses a danger to its humans. Another characteristic of the breed is prodigious memory.

The safety theme in the car is a very important topic both for the health and safety of your faithful life partner, and to avoid unpleasant discomforts such as accidents in the worst case, penalties on your driving licenses and fines in case the Highway Patrol should stop you for a check and not find you in order.
 
THE NEW ROAD CODE
The new Italian highway code provides that:
  • the dogs should be transported by car in a safe and correct way for any type of journey, both short and long for the safety of the animal, the driver and the motorists.
  • A stray dog or several domestic dogs (there is a difference to the highway code!) can be transported only if they are locked in a cage or placed in the dedicated location.
  • A dividing network can also be placed between the animal and the conductor, but only after having received a relevant authorization by the Italian authority for motor vehicles.
  • Basically, the animal should never have the possibility to hamper the driving, causing danger and the driver should never keep the animal in its arms, at the passenger's feet or, in any case, free in the passenger compartment.
 

Those who transgress these rules risk an administrative sanction and the deduction of a point from the driving license (Italian regulations).

 

3 WAYS TO CORRECTLY TRANSPORT YOUR PET
Basically there are 3 alternative methods provided by law to safely transport your pet during the trip by car.
  • CARRIER
The carrier, also called cage or kennel consists of a "container" in plastic or metal, available in different sizes; it usually fits the dog size.
It will be equipped with a comfortable front opening and will be placed in the luggage compartment of the vehicle; depending on the size, it is possible to place more kennels in case you should transport more than one pet.
It is the simplest and most economical way to organize transport, provided that the pet is already used to stay in one of this "cages", otherwise he could get stressed too much. Show it to your faithful friend in a positive way; let him sniff it a little before putting it in the car. When the cage is positioned on the car, put the pet inside, keep a positive approach and move away for a few minutes; make sure that he gets used to the carriage by putting tasty morsels, but without forcing him to enter.
It is the only way to transport the pet in the car according to the law and it also reduces the risk that the animal is frightened cause he has a limited view of the outside.
  • DIVISORY NETWORK
It is a special accessory to divide the space between the pet and the driver. It is the most commonly used method and allows the pet to have its own reserved space in which to move, relax and rest. It is good practice to place a blanket or a pillow to make the environment comfortable. Since the pet is free in an area that is not very restricted, it will be at ease but we must not forget that a sudden stop could represent a danger to the pet's health.
  • SAFETY BELT FOR DOG
Represents a fairly new accessory, which provides to place the animal on the seat of the car by tying him to the car's safety hook like a real belt.
These devices are inserted into the "female" buckle of the normal seat belt, while at the other end they are equipped with the classic leash hook; connecting the dog safety belt to the harness, it ensures that the pet is held by the body, thus avoiding damage to the neck in an emergency.
Nevertheless, It is a suitable condition for a short journey because the movement and the change of position are limited, moreover, as for the carrier, the pet should be gradually get used to that to avoid he get stressed or frightened.
  • GENERAL PRACTICAL ADVICE FOR THE JOURNEY
Here are some general tips for travelling with your pet especially during long journeys:
- place the pet in the car after he got tired tahnks to a nice walk and after it has had the opportunity to do all his needs
- always keep the pet's documents with you
- have water available to make him drink
- avoid giving food early before departure
- ensure a recirculation of air in the car (not the conditioned one!)
- provide stops at regular intervals
- never leave the pet alone in the car, especially in summer due to high temperatures the car can reach in a short time
- do not ever allow him to overlook the windows
- if the pet suffers car sickness, take all precautions to reduce as much as possible his discomfort (regular stops, no food, limited space and eventually, in the most serious cases, the administration of specific medications prescribed by the veterinarian).
 
Never underestimate the existent rules for transport by car, they are very important to avoid unpleasant consequences. I hope I have been useful.

Nowadays, one of the first and last actions of the day is to check WhatsApp chat and social notices. What does this mean ?!
Messages work because they are simple, informal and fast. For some time, chats have almost completely replaced  traditional SMS because they have more functions, are widespread and cheap, as messages are often not included in the tariff plans of mobile operators while internet is.
Throughout the world, WhatsApp has reached 1 billion and 500 thousand active users per month. In Italy it is first for the number of downloads and active users per month and, together with Facebook Messenger, has recorded a growth rate twice than Facebook.
Being the reference app for instant messaging, WhatsApp took a further step at the beginning of this year. In January 2018, WhatsApp Business app reached Google Play Store in Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, United Kingdom and United States. The choice of these countries for the launch was not accidental: except the U.S.A., the other countries are among the states where WhatsApp is more popular.
 
WHATSAPP BUSINESS, what advantages.
Are you looking for an easy-to-use tool that allows you to stay in touch with your customers by creating effective marketing campaigns?
What does it consist of, what is it? Why should you take it into consideration if you have a pet shop?
This new service is a free and effective tool, especially for small and medium-sized companies that provides tools to communicate with the customer more efficiently and to increase business.
I add two more data to understand why companies must consider WhatsApp Business as a communication channel, resulting from a worldwide survey that showed that:
  • 89% of the persons being interviewed prefers to communicate with companies through SMS and instant messaging apps;
  • 77% keeps notices for messages, while only 42% activates those of social apps.
In general, WhatsApp Business is similar to WhatsApp and includes all the functions users have become accustomed to over the last few years: sending of multimedia files, free calls, messages, group chats, offline messages and much more.
The account is identified as a business account; those who have a phone number associated with "standard" WhatsApp will have to choose whether to keep this or move to WhatsApp Business (although it's possible to use both in the same phone). The simplest solution is to associate a company number to be used only for WhatsApp Business, so that it's possible to get the certification of confirmed activity.
If you have already two different numbers, a business and a personal one, you can install both applications, WhatsApp Business and WhatsApp Messenger, in the same phone and register each application with the corresponding number.
 
What additional functions does Business app offer in comparison with the standard one?
  • COMPANY PROFILE: create a profile concerning your pet shop, so that your customers can more easily find useful information, such as your website, your address (which will also be displayed on Google Maps), your opening times and contacts. When you are asked to put in the name of your business in correspondence with the screen "Business info", please do it carefully: once put in, the business name can no longer be changed.
  • MESSAGING TOOLS: answer your customers as fast as you can, using away messages when you're not available, or welcome messages to send an introductory message when they first write you or after 14 days of inactivity in the chat. You can also choose to send it:
- to all contacts or only to those you selected
- automatically or by scheduling the date of sending
  • SUPPORT FOR FIXED NUMBERS: you can use WhatsApp Business by a landline and your customers can send you messages to that number. During the verification process, choose the "Call me" option to receive the code by phone.
  • WHATSAPP BUSINESS and WHATSAPP MESSENGER in the same phone: this modality is possible, but each application must be associated with a separate telephone number.
  • WHATSAPP WEB: allows you to answer your customers directly from the PC browser, in order to be even more efficient.
  • CREATE AND USE QUICK ANSWERS: Quick answers avoid you having to repeat the same sentences. After having set up the answers to the most frequent questions your customers ask, you can recall them by typing "/".
  • SEE THE STATISTICS OF MESSAGES: you can check how many messages have been sent, delivered, read and received. We trust that with the next updates you will also get better analytics.
  • CLASSIFY CONTACTS: you can create up to 20 labels, choose colours and classify contacts in order to find chats and messages. Currently WhatsApp Business does not support the search for companies directly in the app. You'll have to have your customer number and add it to your contacts to start an interaction or to add it to a group.
Ask always your telephone line manager about any costs that may be charged for data traffic.
 
WHATSAPP BUSINESS, which disadvantages.
This application is currently compatible only with Android, which is still the most used operating system.
It's an app linked to a telephone number, therefore it cannot be shared with the same contact that supports WhatsApp standard version.
Before you can chat with customers, you must have their consent. Registration procedures will be created (as for all kinds of Business communications!) through which customers will register, allowing the receipt of text messages.
 
Have you already considered WhatsApp Business in your marketing strategies?
WhatsApp Business can and must be efficiently used  to increase the visibility of your e-commerce and your pet shop. The main  purpose is to develop a strategy thoughtfully, so as to become interesting and not to get the opposite result of being reported for "SPAM" or losing contacts.
WhatsApp Business offers you the possibility to create customized campaigns, without having to count on specific offers. In fact, thanks to WhatsApp you have a greater chance of answer and you can allow yourself to be more creative. Maybe you will need more time, but it will certainly be effective to develop the idea of an active, nice and viral brand. And this will push the potential customer to feel more curiosity towards you and to want to find out more about you.
The possibility to "segment" the area of users is another way to do marketing efficaciously: you can plan the different campaigns according to users. For example, in case of a usual customer, you could use a more informal language and focuse on special products. Your customer already knows you, knows what you offer and does not need to trust, but only to be encouraged to get a new purchase! In case of a potential customer, you will have to focus more on a general and interactive point of view, actively catching their attention.
 
Although WhatsApp Business has still its limits to this day, it is certainly an effective tool that should not be underestimated to create fruitful relatioships with your customers.

Besides, this App will be changed, in order to improve even more work organization such as  holiday modality, silent modality and the connection with external accounts.
