The first advantage would be, that Pugs are amazing for apartment living. It is not very active breed, so its perfect for seniors or not so active people. They are also pretty easily trainable, at least if we talk about the basic commands. Because of that, they are great for novice dog owners.
Great thing is, that you can read pugs emotions quite easily. If they are sad, happy or excited, you can tell it easily. And a lot of time, Pugs emotions will be the same as yours. If you are sad, the Pug will lay with you all day long. If you are happy, they will happily go out for a walk with you.
Pugs are very friendly, loving, they love to cuddle, they are very affectionate and they will make you smile every day. Because of this, they are great choice for family pet. Your kids will love this dog and most of the time, Pug will love them as well. This is kid friendly dog. Pug is also friendly towards strangers or other dogs.
The last bigger pros is, that Pugs are easy to groom. They really dont need a lot of grooming and bathing, only when necessary. Of course, you need to take care of their ears, eyes and nails, but again, only if it is needed.
Now lets talk about the cons. There are two big disadvantages of owning a pug. The first one is a little bit sad, because it is about their health. Pugs are prone to many diseases and especially to infections. It is because of their face. Their bulgy eyes are prone to eye infection, their short nose is prone to respiratory problems. Be prepared to pay a lot of money for veterinary bills, when you get a Pug.
Another big disadvantage is, that Pugs are heavy shedders. It does not look like it, on the first sight, but Pugs are double coated dogs who shed all the time. Anything a pug touches practically turns into a pug, because it is covered by their fur.
As i said, they are very attached with humans, which is cute, but it can quickly turns into a con. They will go anywhere where you go. To the kitchen, to the television, to the bathroom, everywhere. They love you so much, that for some people it might get annoying. This can be for some disadvantage but for some people this is a big advantage.

Sighthound is a type of a dog, that hunts by sight rather than scent. Because they use sight, all the sighthounds have to be very fast dogs.
Sighthounds are the fastest dogs in the world and the famous Greyhound is part of this group. Because they need to be fast, they have lean bodies, flexible back and long legs.
Sighthounds are very old and ancient group of dogs. For example Saluki or Sloughi are very old breeds.
I mention some questionable breeds into the video. Rhodesian Ridgeback, Thai Ridgeback and Basenji are sighthounds based on some major kennel clubs while some other kennel clubs put them into different group. But since there is always at least one major kennel club (FCI or AKC) that mark them as sighthounds i decide to include all three into this video.
Check out all sighthounds from A - Z with photos:
Cane Corso is descendant of Roman dog breeds, that were used in wars. When the Roman Empire falls, Cane Corso was used as guard, but also as farm dog and hunter. As you can see, it is very skilled and versatile dog, and especially the hunting ability is great, he was used to hunt dangerous animals, like wild boars.
Coat of Cane Corso is short, but very very dense and glossy. I personally finds it great looking. Cane Corso color can wary, the most common color of Cane Corso is black, light or dark shades of gray, or in light or dark shades of fawn, red, or brindle. Its also very common for them to have white patterns over their body, mostly on their nose, chest, toes and chin.
The thing you will love about Cane Corso is, that they dont drool that much, if we compare them to other mastiffs. But of course, they will still drool, they are mastiffs. They also have less wrinkles than typical mastiff, their skin is tighter.
They are also more trainable than other mastiffs, but again, they are still mastiffs. Which means, they have mind of their own and that they are independent animals. It will not be super easy to train them well, you will have to be consistent and strong leader.

Do not be fooled by their size. Most of these dogs, especially when they are younger, are very active. And a lot of time, they are very protective. It is like they are not aware, that they are so small and they feel they are your guards.
Toy dog breeds are trainable. But as with all dogs, you must be firm and consistent. Which might be very hard for some people, because it can be hard to be firm on these little cute dogs with big eyes. But if you want dog, that will not be chewing, nipping etc, you will have to be patient, consistent and firm on them.
It is also advised to not over protect your dog! You will often time see small dogs that are afraid of everything. It is because their owners are over protecting them. It is a mistake. Its much better to act to them like to normal dog.

Lets start with origin of Kangal Shepherd. We actually dont know, how exactly was Kangal Shepherd bred, but there are some rumours. We definitely know, that they are from Turkey and Back in the days in Turkey, Sivas province, the farmers have a big problem with predators like wolves and bears, who were killing their livestock. That is why they bred Kangal Shepherd, which was a dog, that is strong, agile and intelligent enough to repel a wolf.
Kangal Shepherd dog has great temperament. Its very brave, loyal, but most of all, which is very important for dog this big, they are pretty predictable and reliable. They were bred to not be agressive towards other people, so if the Kangal or its family is not at any danger, the Kangal will be most of the time pretty friendly.
They are very territorial, which can be problem, if some people or animals will visit your home. Kangals might be not okay with that, because they really treasure their territory. But if you socialize them properly, there should not be big problems with that.
Kangal need a lot of space, so its good if you have bigger garden. They are also barkers, so make sure, that your neighbours are okay with that. The fence around your garden should be tall and it should have good deep foundation, so the Kangal can not run away. People would be scared of him and they would probably call police.
Last thing i would love to say, is how strong they actually are. The Kangal bite force is the strongest of all dog breeds. Their PSI (which is an unit for meassuring bite force) is incredible 746. Second Bullmastiff is on 556 PSI and famous Pit Bull only on 235 PSI. So the Pit Bull bite force is three time lower than Kangals.
