Historically, they have a reputation for fearlessness. They are nicknamed the ‘red daredevil’ which is a reference to the color of their coat and their stoutheartedness. The origin of the Irish Terrier is unknown.
They are believed to be a descendant of the black and tan-terrier variant dogs of Ireland and Britain. Albeit a conjecture, it is opined that they share bloodlines with the Irish Wolfhound. They were formerly of different colors and types.
Irish Terriers were raised to be thorough vermin killers. What they lacked in looks, they made up for in gameness and working qualities.
Just before the end of the 19th century, they were the first members of the terrier group to be acknowledged by the English Kennel Club. They would go on to the United States where they became quite popular.
Irish Terriers are similar to the Irish Setter in temperament. They are energetic and instinctual. They are excellent watchdogs so they bark more than the average dog. Early socialization is beneficial to the Irish Terrier.
They are excellent with people when they receive early socialization training which also helps them become great family companions. They are not as active as the Irish Setters and can be quite relaxed when indoors.
They love relaxing with their owners. If in a home infested with vermin, then they can get rowdy indoors. They can be left alone indoors as they are a calm breed. They enjoy a variety of mental and physical challenges and can excel at different dog competitions.
Irish Terriers thrive well in a human-populated living space as they love to be around their owners. They are not as welcoming of strangers as the Irish Setter.
They love mental and physical challenges and as vermin hunters, they do well in environments where they can hunt down these rodents.
This reason is why they have been nicknamed the farmer’s friend, as earlier in history, they were popular on farmlands hunting down rodents that threatened farm crops and produce.
Being calm indoors, they can cope with people who stay away from home for a few hours a day. However, they prefer people who stay home during the day.
Irish terriers don’t do well with other dogs. They are known to be aggressive to canines of the same sex. They can be trained to live with cats, however.
They don’t back down from a fight and they fight to the point of serious injury to themselves or other canines. The size of other dogs cannot deter an Irish Terrier from baring its fangs. They are great escape artists so you might consider raising your fences a little higher.
Irish Terriers love the outdoors and would love to take a few minutes outside the walls of a house daily. They require exercise in the form of walks or jogs a few times a day. Activities like Frisbee tossing is great for them.
They love energetic plays. It is best to play with them in a well-secured area as they can easily get distracted by the sight of other dogs.
They have a love for water and can go swimming with you. It is not only fun but an exercising activity for them. They are swift and possess endurance and lack of exercise can make them difficult to stop if they become destructive.
Irish Terriers do not shed heavily. It is advisable to brush their coat once a week to get rid of dead or loose hair to give them a clean look. Smoothing down the hair encourages blood flow to their follicles.
They have a water-repellent coat that is impregnable for dirt so bathing is not necessary for them. Bathe them only if the need arises. Their nails should be trimmed occasionally.

One of the biggest dogs recognized by the American Kennel Club, the massive Mastiff loves being around people and is known to bond closely with his family. A combination of grandeur and good nature as well as courage and docility, he was bred in England and used as a watchdog for more than two thousand years. The breeds short coat can be fawn, apricot or brindle.
As early as 3000 B.C., drawings on Egyptian monuments depict typical Mastiffs. Later, even Caesar noticed the fearless, strong Mastiff as it fought alongside the British soldiers in 55 B.C. Impressed by the breeds courage, he brought a group of them back to Rome and forced them to take part in bull baiting, lion fighting and fights with human gladiators. Later, the Mastiff became popular with the peasants in England, where the dogs were used to keep wolves and other dangerous predators under control as well to as protect the home.
The Mastiff is a powerful yet gentle and loyal companion, but because of his size and need for space, he is best suited for country or suburban life. The breed requires light exercise and minimal grooming.

It is believed they are ancient warriors who fought lions, tigers, even gladiators in the Roman Arena. The Mastiff is a descendant of one of the most ancient types of dogs which is known as the molosser. The molossers are a breed that are probable origins of the mountains of Asia.
Other reports suggest they may have originated from Tibet or north India. The molossers had a star dog long ago – Molossus who was a war dog. This shows why the Mastiff as we know it today is so strong and powerful.
Historically, Mastiffs served as war dogs, guards, and entertainment. They were drawn against ferocious animals for sport. Historically, they have moved with great armies and fought great wars.
All the mentions of their ancestral lineage and the great armies they’ve fought against make people regard Mastiffs as dangerous and impossible animals to be kept as pets. This is untrue. The Mastiff is very friendly with children and adults alike.
It only attacks when it feels threatened just like any animal would. Mastiffs rarely need to get into a fight with other dogs because of their intimidating size. Other dogs cower at the sight of this giant they can’t make sense of.

Mastiffs can overheat easily making it inadvisable to take them for long walks. Younger Mastiffs love to prance around but the jumping about should be limited so as not to damage their still-developing bones.
Jogging with Mastiffs would be difficult because of their size and the ease at which they get hot. Mastiffs should be walked during the cool parts of the day, i.e. morning and evening.
Mastiffs have a straight and short topcoat with an even shorter undercoat. Mastiffs should be brushed weekly. Mastiffs usually have an extra fold of skin around the jaw.
This should be cleaned daily. Cleaning this wrinkle will help prevent the risk of bacterial infections. The wrinkle should be cleaned with moist fabric and dried thoroughly.

The original purpose of the cross was to attempt to develop guide dogs suitable for visually impaired individuals with allergies. However, their popularity did not end there! Since 2005, Goldendoodles have been moderately used as guide dogs, therapy dogs, diabetic dogs, search dogs and rescue dogs, as they have inherited the poodle's intelligence and the golden retriever's ease of training. Goldendoodles have also become increasingly used as domestic pets due to their affection towards families, friendliness and patience with kids and strangers.
There are three main coat types. There is the straight coat, which is flat and resembles more of a golden retriever coat. The wavy coat type is a mixture of a poodle's curls, and a golden retriever's straighter coat. The last coat type is curly, which tends to look more like the poodle coat.

However, it has gone by quite a lot of names since its existence, some of which includes; Melita, the ancient dog of Malta, and cokie- which was first heard in the US East Coast and was eventually popularized as time went on.
The Maltese dog, according to research is a descendant of Volpinio Italiano, a Spitz-type dog, endemic to Swiss lake dwellers, and bred specifically to remain small. The oldest information about the dog dates back to ancient Greek.

The Maltese are friendly, happy, docile creatures. However, it does not matter how cuddly they might look, they are also very fierce.
While a Maltese loves to play, they prefer adult human company, so you might have to supervise them when they are in the company of children below 10, especially if they did not grow with these children.

They are very obedient and loyal, and might just cower if screamed at by its owner. They are very agile and suspicious and will guide all that that belongs to their owners with ferocity.
The Maltese are not a fan of the outdoors as much as it is a fan of small spaces. It prefers to be in an enclosed space with humans nearby. A Maltese might get intimidated in space that seems too large and has little or no humans around; this might tamper with its active and playful temperament.
A Maltese dog is very active and might need nothing more than a 30-minute walk or jog to make up for their exercise requirements. All the jumping around it does while at home sufficiently covers the remaining exercise requirement needed for its growth.
They have a long, silky coat, which requires brushing. They do not have an undercoat, so you have to be careful about washing so they do not end up with dry skin because of too much washing. a bath three times a week is not sufficient.
Maltese are at risk of tear staining, which might be because of too much yeast in their food. You will have to reduce the amount of yeast in a Maltese’s food, to further reduce the appearance of tear stains under their eyes.
To get rid of these tear stains when they have already appeared, you need a fine-toothed metal comb, which can be gotten from the shop of any dog care shop, and then you will have to soak in hot water and brush under their eyes where the tear stains show, as gentle as possible.
You might need to blow-dry a Maltese after washing because sometimes, they are unable to shake dry themselves because of the length and volume of their hair.

Having a Labradoodle is one of the best things that can happen to any dog owner; as this cute and lovable species of dogs are loved and adored by dog lovers in Australia and the world as a whole, for their loyalty, hypoallergenic features, and vibrant energy. Discover more about our Labradoodle puppies for sale below!
The Labradoodle is a hybrid dog of the Labrador retriever and standard poodle. The first labradoodle cross-breeding was carried out in the year 1989, by Wally Conron, who was head of the Australian Royal Guide Dogs Association at that time.
The crossbreeding came as a result of the request for a hypoallergenic guide dog for a blind woman who was a resident in Hawaii.
The blind woman who requested the cross-breeding had a husband who suffered from allergies, and as such, the couple had to make a compromise for a guide dog who would work as a guide dog for the blind wife, and also not cause an allergic reaction for the husband.
Hence, Wally performed the cross-breeding which birthed a litter of Labradoodles; one of which was Sultan, the only labradoodle puppy that fulfilled Wally and the couple’s wishes in a guide dog.
Today, the success of Wally in producing Sultan inspired other breeders to commence the cross-breeding of Labradors and poodles as therapy pets, detection work for official agencies and guide dogs.
Labradoodles are dogs known for their calm disposition, energy, friendliness, water-loving nature, obedience, playfulness, loyalty, and affection, and these are some of the reasons why they are one of the best family dogs amongst the dog family.
As a result of their intelligence, the labradoodle dog gets a hold of information very fast, and not only that, they also have the ability to comprehend and respond to information quickly too.
Due to their playful nature, it is possible for a labradoodle to get carried away when playing but through the help of proper training, the owner can easily curb the excessive playfulness and train them to know when to play and when not to play.
Irrespective of their playfulness and accommodating behavior, Labradoodles can get very shy and overly vigilant when it comes to having strangers and guests around.
The labradoodle is a homely dog hence it acclimatizes well in a family setting. There is no particular environment for the labradoodle, as they are adaptable animals who can feel homely in any type of apartment. But the ideal environment for a labradoodle is a live-in apartment, where they can snuggle and cuddle up.
Known for its water-loving nature, a labradoodle also thrives well in an environment where there is a clean body of water to swim and play in.
Although Labradoodles are homely animals, they need up to one minute of physical and mental exercises/training on a daily in an open place (which can be in your fenced yard or at the park).
And due to their eager nature, Labradoodles are highly trainable as they are always ready and excited to learn new things.
You can exercise and train this breed of dogs through the following processes; jogging, swimming, running, playing fetch, hide and seek, obedience training, concentration games, learning and socializing with other dogs outdoors.
Kindly bear it in mind that the more you exercise and train Labradoodles, the more active, agile and intelligent they become.
The Labradoodle comes in different coats types (wool, fleece and hair coats), texture (wavy, straight and curly), and colors (cream, chocolate, caramel, black, red, gold and apricot). The labradoodle’s coat requires brushing, combing and trimming regularly.
When you brush your labradoodle’s coat, take time to brush out the tangles and knots that might have occurred during the process of playing around.
Labradoodles grow hairs inside their ears, so the owners should be aware of this, and also make plans to pluck out the hair strands when they become too many in the ear; as too many hair strands in the ear can block air from circulating in the ear. Remember to clean the ears with a cotton ball to avoid ear infections.
Don’t forget to brush their teeth thrice a week and trim their nails once every two weeks. And don’t hesitate to invite a pet specialist when you notice awkward things in your labradoodle pet.

The Hungarian Komondor is a strong and powerful breed of guardian sheepdog draped in chunks of white dread like “cords.” Due to its physical attributes and exceptional instinctive consciousness, the Komondor breed is a natural guardian of livestock and property. Discover more about our Komondor puppies for sale below!
The Komondor was brought to Europe between the 12th and 13th Centuries by Turkic speaking nomadic Cumans. Komondors are descendants of Tibetan dogs. Historical data speculates that they originate from an area close to the Yellow River. During the second world war, the Komondor breed neared extinction.
They were hunted down by German and Russian forces who sought to occupy the farmlands and property of Hungarians.
Since the breed is an instinctive guardian, its defensive tendencies were albeit problematic to the invading forces. This prompted the large-scale reduction of their population during the second world war.
The Komondor was primarily bred for the defense of livestock. Its temperament has a stack resemblance with most guard dogs; at a first look, they appear furry, cuddly, and calm, but when there’s a potential threat to the livestock or property they’re guarding, they snap into an attacking defensive mode.
The Komondor breed is bred to function independently and can make decisions on their own. Komondors are notably affectionate with the family they protect; they can also show affection to children and friends of their family as long as there’s no perceived imminent threat to its handlers.
Komondors usually thrive within a familiar setting. A family unit with ample farmland or fenced in backyard is a perfect fit for the Komondor breed. The Komondor is a large dog that requires space to perform the daily physical activity of guarding livestock and protecting the household. In an enclosed space or environment, the Komondor won’t function to its optimal capacity.
The Komondor is a natural athlete. They’re large, agile and athletic dog breeds that require space to perform physical activities that will keep them healthy and happy.
A fenced yard with lots of space is an ideal location for them to perform their daily exercise routine. Dog parks might be ideal for some Dog breeds, but they’re a terrible idea for Komondors.
The guardian instinct of Komondors kicks in when they see other dogs, so they usually profile other dogs as potential threats and this could lead to some confusion at the Dog park.
Grooming the Komondor cords are like grooming dreadlocks. Adequate care must be taken to keep them clean, healthy and free from smell. At 9 to 10 months you’ll notice that the furry coat starts to clump up, you’re required to separate/split them into areas that will eventually grow out into cords.
To prevent smells, regular shampoo should be diluted and used to bathe the Komondor. Ensure you rinse out every bit of shampoo and dry out the cords. Placing the Komondor in a windy area or before a large fan will aid in drying the cords.
If you fail to rinse every bit of shampoo off the Cord of your Komondor or leave the coat incompletely dry, the result will be “a big old dog with a bad smell.”
Our Komondor puppies for sale come from either USDA licensed commercial breeders or hobby breeders with no more than 5 breeding mothers. USDA licensed commercial breeders account for less than 20% of all breeders in the country.
The unregulated breeders who are selling outside of the USDA regulations and without a license are what we consider to be “Puppy Mills.” We are committed to offering Komondor puppies who will grow up to become important members of your family. We only purchase puppies from the very best sources, and we stand behind every puppy we sell.
