Where does your dog sleep?
Most indoor dogs sleep at the foot or side of their owner's bed, on a favorite blanket, cushion or dog bed, placed in a warm part of the room away from drafts. It's normal for a dog to nap in the master bedroom when your house is empty during the day because it smells like you.
Natural Habitat of Dogs. The lives of dogs in the wild give powerful clues for the ingredients of a healthy, happy, balanced life for your pet. Dogs live in many habitats, including prairies, deserts, grasslands, forests, rain forests, coastal regions and arctic zones.
- The basis of your dog's diet should be a high quality balanced premium dog food that is appropriate for the life stage and health status of your dog. You can also offer some natural foods to provide some variety. Natural foods include fresh human-grade raw meat (e.g. raw lamb), raw meaty bones and vegetables.
- An American electrician, James Spratt, concocted the first dog treat. Living in London at the time, he witnessed dogs around a shipyard eating scraps of discarded biscuits. Shortly thereafter he introduced his dog food, made up of wheat meals, vegetables and meat.
- Domesticated, or tamed, horses can live in almost any habitat, but wild horses prefer plains, prairies, and steppes for many reasons. Horses need wide open spaces for defense purposes, and they need some shelter, like trees or cliffs, to protect them from the elements.
Where do African wild dogs live? They are found mostly in arid zones and in the savanna. They can also be found in woodland, scrublands and mountainous habitats if there is prey available.
- The African wild dog (Lycaon pictus), also known as African hunting dog, African painted dog, painted hunting dog, or painted wolf, is a canid native to Sub-Saharan Africa.
- African Wild Dogs vs. Hyena. African Wild Dogs are commonly mistaken for Hyenas but in fact there are many differences, both physically and behaviorally. Taxonomic Classification: Hyenas are NOT dogs!! Hyenas are closer related to mongooses and cats.
- A feral child (also called wild child) is a human child who has lived isolated from human contact from a very young age, where they have little or no experience of human care, behavior, or, crucially, of human language. Feral children may have experienced severe abuse or trauma before being abandoned or running away.

- As a general guideline, though, the American Veterinary Medical Association breaks it down like this:
- 15 human years equals the first year of a medium-sized dog's life.
- Year two for a dog equals about nine years for a human.
- And after that, each human year would be approximately five years for a dog.
