People go camping to get out into nature and escape the hustle and bustle of urban and suburban lives. We get to experience fresh air, hear the singing of the birds, and forget about schedules and alarm clocks for a little while. Dogs also enjoy getting out into nature and seeing new sights and smelling new scents, and they provide an extra sense of security and warmth when they join us at the camping site. Their thick, double-layer coats also help to give them some protection from extremes of temperature. Taking your dog camping can help strengthen the bond and communication between you and your canine companion and provide them with a sense of community and stability.
The Armenian Gampr is frequently used as a guardian for sheep in their home country, where they protect their flocks against predators like bears and wolves. While these dogs tend to be aloof but polite in public, they are known to be rather territorial when it comes to their own homes. A large dog capable of fighting off bears and wolves that has a territorial nature can easily become a threat if they feel like someone is encroaching on their territory. One of the best ways to teach your dog to accept guests on your property is to give them plenty of socialization so that they understand that people coming to visit do not constitute a threat.
This breed is a strong breed of canine that requires a great deal of exercise to maintain their muscle tone and vigor, but they are also more prone to disorders like hip dysplasia, which means that they should avoid high impact canine sports and activities, particularly before their skeletal system has matured. Strength training not only helps to prevent obesity, it also helps to lengthen your dog’s lifespan and according to recent studies, may even help to prevent certain types of cancer. While teaching your dog to roll over may not initially appear to be a strength training exercise, it is particularly helpful in strengthening your dog’s core muscles.
