Some dogs are popular the world over after being touted as hypoallergenic dog breeds. But when advertising and marketing funds enter the picture, nothing is what it may seem. For example, scientists insist there is really no hard scientific data that can assure us that a house pet is allergen-free, regardless of who they meet. In any case, people with allergies talk a good deal about being able to live well with a hypoallergenic dog’s low-shedding coat.
As far as I can recall, our family could not do without at least one dog as a pet. In particular we had one small American Cocker Spaniel that stayed at home for up to a year. Things changed when my mother, then pregnant with my youngest brother, sent the dog away to stay with an aunt. What I could remember about that pet is the amount of hair he was capable of producing. What my dad could remember was, unfortunately, his allergies! Since then, I’ve come to learn that when it comes to allergens, some dogs can carry something that can pack a wallop; others, not even the subtlest ill-feeling.
So back to that controversial term, “hypoallergenic.” It’s really a misnomer, I think. All dogs simply emit dander and thus, the protein too, that is the root of those pesky and annoying allergic reactions. A breed with nil to zero hair (like the head-turning Xolo) cannot automatically lay claim to being less allergenic. Remember that the main culprit behind allergic reactions is the skin cells and saliva containing the allergen, and the hair is far from being the suspect. Check it out: examples of less allergic dogs are the Poodle, Schnauzer, and Shih Tzu; examples of hypoallergenic breeds are the Greyhound, Spanish Water Dog, and many of the terrier breeds. Notable breeds that have skyrocketed to fame in recent years are the Portuguese Water Dog and the Labradoodle, two dogs that seem to be visually interchangeable, but actually have a lot of stark differences from each other.
The Portuguese Water Dog, or Portie, is of course the First Dog; the Doodle, as it is also called, is a designer dog. The first traces its roots to busy fishing harbors; the second, to some high-tech breeding lab. Nevertheless, both are highly intelligent, magnetic in personality, and hate boredom.
When adopting or purchasing a new pet, potential dog owners with pet allergies may need to spend some hours interacting with their choices in order to select well. Owners can take action too, in order to control allergens. The solution is sometimes just some regular bathing and brushing, coupled with the use of air purifiers to bring down the level of pet allergens in the house. A little research and reading does a lot of wonders when it comes to getting the right pet, and may even put off any premature parting with it.

There is a group of working dogs known as detection dogs, and there are many specific types of detection specialties. With the frequency of travel within the United States and to foreign countries, there has been a noticeable increase in concerns over bed bugs. Along with this problem came the need to find ways of detecting bed bugs without the harmful use of widespread pesticides. Since detector dogs can pin-point scents it became increasingly popular to use dogs to detect not only live bed bugs but bed bugs in there developmental stages as well. This way any treatment of the problem could be narrowed to the exact area needing treatment rather than the widespread potentially harmful fumigation and pesticide.
There is no special breed for bed bug detection. The best criteria is a happy dog who loves to work and hunt. The training is extensive and today these dogs are certified and usually are in the range of 98 percent accurate. Since their sniffing abilities are so keen, they can find hidden infestations and save time and money when it comes to treatment. More and more extermination companies are using this reliable resource to rid their customer’s problems.
The training of these dogs usually involves hiding vials of bed bugs in various stages of development as well as their fecal matter, and having the dogs pick up the scents, alert their handlers and get rewarded. This is similar to how other types of detection dogs are trained. The dogs become very focused on “the hunt”.
There has been a growth of new business opportunities in this specialty industry and mostly in North America. The need for this service ranges from residences to large hotels, and is serviced by private dog sniffing companies to partnering with extermination companies. Either way the dog doesn’t care about that – only about when the dog can get to work!

There is nothing like a floor rug made of animal skin to add an exotic outdoor look to your home. Many people find an animal rug in front of a fireplace cozy and even sexy.
Most animal skins can be used as rugs when properly processed. However their qualities differ from animal to animal. Please make sure that you buy area rugs made of real animal skin from people who have proper licenses to sell them.
Rugs made from real bear skins can be large, sometimes more than 6 feet in length. You will have the choice of several varieties of bear rugs to choose from including those made from Black, Brown, Grizzly, Kodiak, and even Polar, bears. Color of the rug may not match the bears color as they go through what are called color phases. Black bear skins for instance come in a range of colors from dark brown to blond. Blond colored skins are the most expensive.
All bear skin rugs tend to be expensive. Make sure that your rug was professionally skinned and tanned. A good bear skin floor rug will have the real bear claws on its hands. Bear rugs need to be properly padded in order to be used.
Zebra or to give its scientific name Equus Burchelli are not considered endangered though the zebra skin trade is highly regulated. As such as long as the vender has proper licenses you can buy zebra skins legally.
In addition you should check whether skin has scars or other blemishes. Blemishes will reduce the price. Size on the other hand will increase the price. Some zebra skin area rugs can be almost eight feet in length. Zebra skins need to be backed by heavy felt for protection and beauty.
Lions skin floor rugs can be more expensive than bear or zebra skins. Lions are an endangered animal and killing them for their skin is not legal. Legally sold lion skin floor rugs are made from lions that have died from natural causes or from confiscated lion skins sold in order to raise funds for conservation. Make sure that seller has proper documents.
These types of skin rugs are less expensive and more widely available.
Fake skins are widely available for almost any type of animal. Some fake skins are made from other animals skins, especially from cows. Other fake skins are completely artificial.

The Coto Doana National Park is located in Andalusia. It is a highly important and vast wetland place, one of the most essential wildlife reservation centers in Spain. Its size is approximately 1300 sq kilometers, making it one of the largest parks in all of Europe. It was also named a UNESCO biosphere reservation, thanks to its wonderful habitat for the wildlife that live there. This national park is home to migratory birds, amphibians, mammals and a very good ecosystem that can sustain a large number of wildlife species with no difficulty.
The fame of this wonderful national park did not form recently, in fact it goes way back to the thirteenth century! At that time, the kings of Castillia organised a hunting estate for royality around the region. In the past years the soil development threatened the integrity and balance of the ecosystem created at Doana National Park, but it was saved by the highly important work of a conservationist called Guy Mountford. He is responsabile for educating the people about this amazing ecosystem and its importance to Spain and the world.
The Coto Doana National Park is a highly appreciated place by ornithologists thanks to its important reserve and community of birds. The area where the park is set is actually just beneath the bird migration route between Africa and Europe. What this means is that a variety of bird species fly over this area. Some of these migrating birds include vultures and spoonbills. The Doana National Park actually features more than 250 different species of birds, making it one of the most impressive colonies in the whole world, not just Spain.
Birdwatchers consider that the best time to visit is in the spring and autumn, but there are plenty of species to look at during the winter as well, ducks, geese, you name it.
Many other animal species are kept in the Doana National Park, not just birds. There can be found an impressive number of mammals, for example. One of the most well-known mammals is the Iberian Lynx, a big cat that is sadly very close to extinction. In the Doana National Park you will also find a large number of nocturnal species, some rare mangooses brought from Egypt, rabits, badgers and so on. Even though the Coto Doana National Park has reached such great fame, things did not always go so well for this wildlife reservation. The larger the number of visiting tourists, the more water it needs, raising the expenses of this park.
, and are among the most beautiful destinations for your vacations.
