Six misunderstandings about dog paws

Misunderstanding 1: What's the good -looking of the dog's paws, isn't it all like?

Yeah, look at the left and right, look at it, all of them are dog feet. That's because the bone structure of all dogs is basically the same, and we have not carefully observed and compared. From the perspective of external features, they can see the difference. Some dog's claws are round, arched, four toes hug, like cat paws, we call them cat -shaped claws. Some dog's claws are slightly longer, and the two toes in the middle are protruding, like rabbit feet, called rabbit -shaped claws. Do you know, there are some dogs with duck -like feet like ducks, which are very suitable for swimming, but we cannot call them duck -shaped feet, because their appearance is not like duck feet. In addition, some dog feet are large and thick, like wearing two pairs of big snow boots, and a large amount of protective hair grows between the toes.

Misunderstanding 2: The toes of all dogs are the first five and four, and the wolf toes are degraded toes.

If you change "all" to "most". Some dogs have wolf toes in the hind legs, which are generally caused by bad genes. They are indeed a degraded part, without great existence, and of course they can be removed. Removal wolf toe is generally performed within 10 days after the puppy was born, which is a very simple surgery. The significance of this surgery is to avoid the pain caused by the accidental injury of the wolf toe and the excessive development of the wolf toe in the future. There are some people's requirements for the beauty of the dog. Effect.

In the scope of professional dog exhibitions, not all dogs need to remove wolf toe, so there are "must be removed", "can be removed" and "must not be removed". Big White Bear Dogs and Anatoli Shepherds can have two wolf toes in one hind leg. The former must be retained, and the latter allows removal.

Misunderstanding 3: Each dog may have different claws, but the 4 claws of a dog should be the same.

It looks the same, but the function of 4 legs is different, and it is inevitable that different. In dog breed standards, it is clearly stipulated that they are not the same.

The front foot is large, the back feet are small: Dedin Dingmeng (the difference between the front and rear), the West Highland Bai, the Wales Corgi (Card Gen), the sausage, the Scottish -Summary, it seems that all the dogs with short -legged bodies are small , Backfoot: Kane, Lowei (precisely, toes are longer), bullfighting (the same as Lowei)

Misunderstanding 4: The feet of a standard dog that meets the standard is absolutely inaccurate.

That's right, a pair of toes stand forward and stand straight, and it looks healthy. It is difficult to imagine what good results can be achieved by an adult Dubin, Dan or a lady who can get. However, if it is a Scottish with a slightly outside foot, it may not be judged by this influence on the judge. Because its eight characters are acceptable. Standards are not mechanical, not considering dog breed characteristics. This can actually be called "recognized defects", because this defect does not affect the health of this dog breed.

Misunderstanding 5: Dogs can run into the toenails by themselves during walking, no need to cut it. Besides, there are no toenails. What can I walk?
Dogs are no longer wild animals. They never need to be busy for survival. They can no longer meet the growth rate of toenails in normal laughter. Therefore, cutting Toenails are necessary. Some owners do not cut the toenails of the dog all year round, causing the toenails to break and split, and the dogs are painful and unbearable. In addition, the dog walks on the ground with his feet, which has nothing to do with the toenails. Dragging 16 long toenails, not to mention the burden of walking. In case of smooth flooring, the dog's toes are not tight, but also become outer eight characters, and they must be deformed when walking.
Many competition dogs, shortly after birth, cut the toenails clean (shorter than we usually cut), plus reasonable training, when they grow up, the dog's foot pads are elastic, standing and running. The style is stylish, really beautiful.

Misunderstanding 6: The hair on the soles of the dog's feet can increase the friction when touching the ground, which is conducive to walking.

wrong! The answer is exactly the opposite. The long hair that grows from the toe gaps is just like a solid lubricant, which makes the dog feel cramped when they run. In the long run, their limbs are deformed and their steps are ugly. And danger is that it is easy to slip and fall, causing serious damage.

In the pet beauty salon, the toenails and the soles of the feet can be performed at the same time. Every show -class dog, under the wind, elegant and chic, is completely cut off for "solid lubricating oil".
