5 Best Dry Dog Foods

Published

on

This guide will cover some important facts about dry dog foods, including what to look for and what the best dry food options are. Whether you’ve just adopted your first dog, or you have an older dog at home, these are the5 best dry dog foods on the market today. 

Why Dry Food  

There’s a constant debate raging amongst pet owners about whether or not dry or wet food is “healthier” or “better” for dogs, but in truth, each has its own benefits. Dry food is often far more convenient for pet owners, and, due to its texture, it encourages dogs to chew before they swallow—thus helping with common digestive and dental problems that can arise from dogs inhaling their food. We’ve all seen our excited dogs rushing the bowl and devouring their food in ten seconds flat! That’s simply not healthy for the dog.  

Most experts recommend that you feed your dog a balanced diet of both wet and dry food, but the exact ratio of each will depend on your dog’s breed, size, and age. Be sure to check with your vet before you make any changes to your dog’s diet, and if you notice adverse effects after doing so, discontinue the brand you’re using. We need to take care of our furry friends, and that means wholesome ingredients, brands that actually care about pets, and keeping the vet informed!

Are Rottweilers unsuitable as pets?

Published

on

The news of two pet Rottweilers mauling a 58-year-old worker to death in a farm near Chidambaram, in Cuddalore district, last week has sent shock waves through people. It was reported that the dogs chased the man, attacked him, and bit his ear off after their feed got delayed. This is not the first reported incident of assaults by Rottweilers. It was only two years ago that two pet Rottweilers were mauled to death by a 68-year-old woman in Avadi, Chennai. And a few years ago, two Rottweilers in Arakkonam mauled to death their owner when he had gone to feed them. The latest incident has once again put the focus back on Rottweilers and their suitability as pets.

“Rottweilers were originally used to pull carts to the market, herd animals and guard the home and farm. They were used as working dogs,” says Mini Vasudevan, an animal activist and founder of Humane Animal Society, “For many, their dark and sturdy features can come across as a bit terrifying. But I would say that Rottweilers are a breed that is gravely misunderstood. Rotts can be fiercely loyal to the family.”

With training, these service dogs can provide help for the person suffering from dementia and peace of mind to the family and the caregivers of the individual.

Manoj says that training these dogs is a must. “If you want your Rott to guard your house but you allow them to socialize with everyone, the purpose would be defeated. Dogs need to be trained to listen to your command and should be made to understand from a young age that you are the one calling the shots and not vice versa. Rottweilers are extremely intelligent and can be trained easily,” he says.
Agreeing with him is Nalin, who says, “The best time to start training a Rott is when they are four months old. Whenever they tend to get a bit aggressive, work them up. I have a controlled environment at home and I leave them unleashed. They run around and get exhausted after a while. If you don’t have a facility like that, take them out for a long walk and tire them out.”

How To Legally Own A Firearm In Kenya

Published

on

Cases of insecurity is at a high rise in Kenyan capital today. Robberies and muggings around the Nairobi CBD have been on the rise with victims recounting their experiences on social media.

The most recent one being KBC presenter, Shiksha Arora who narrated on Twitter how she was mugged and strangled at Globe roundabout flyover.

Earlier in April, Actor Ainea Ojiambo was in a shooting incident at CBD involving two thieves who wanted to grab his gold chain. The incident led to a guard being shot by Ainea.

Being a licensed gun owner in Kenya is not an easy process but is recommended especially when one’s security is threatened.

First, one can own a gun for personal safety and there is no law that limits the number of firearms a person can own. However, in Kenya, no individual can be legally licensed to own more than one firearm for personal safety.

The role of the police is to maintain order and be responsible for everyone’s safety. Thus, only few applications to own guns by individuals are usually approved.

Owning a firearm in Kenya costs from approximately Sh100,000 to 350,000 legally purchased and licensed depending with the type of gun.

There are four crucial requirements that one must meet for the application to be approved. These are:

  • The applicant has to be aged 21 years and above.
  • Must be trained in handling firearms.
  • Should be of sane mind/mentally stable.
  • Should have a clear criminal record.

According to the Firearms Act, civilians cannot be given firearms used by security organs such as Ak47, MP5 and G3. Hence, under the 2015 Statute Law (Miscellaneous Amendment) Bill, any civilian found with the aforementioned types of guns will face imprisonment.

Here’s How To Apply:

  • Express your interest of owning a gun by making an application to the officer in charged of licensing firearms.
  • Fill in application forms at the Chief Licensing Officer at the firearms office, Nairobi.
  • With a certificate of good conduct from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI), submit the application form at a nearby police station at fee of Sh2000.
  • Vetting process by the National Intelligence Service (NIS) and another by the Firearms Licensing Board (This can either be approved or rejected).
  • If approved, your name will be sent to the Inspector General of Police who will again approve or reject the application.
  • When approved by the IG, the Firearms Licensing Board will issue the applicant with a license which is renewable annually.

When a licensed firearm holder loses their firearm or it gets destroyed, he/she is required to report to the nearest police station and failure of this warrants one year imprisonment or a fine not exceeding Sh10,000.

STAY SAFE.
