Did you know that the pelican lineage is at least 30 million years old? Yes, they have been around for a very long time! Their diet does not consist solely of fish, however, certain mammals are also on the menu.
Dogs are amazing creatures, and they are really good at learning human facial cues. Which is why dogs are such great companions. Last year research even showed that there may be a scientific reason for their apparent ability to read our emotions.

Swimming is not just good for your body, but also for your dog’s. That is, if your dog likes swimming. Some really don’t and would rather stay on land. But there are plenty of ways to make your dog comfortable in the water, it takes time and patience if your dog isn’t really a fan of water – it is worth the effort though. It is fun to join your dog in the water. A bit different from a walk in the park!
An added bonus is that dogs need to use more of their muscle power to get around in the water than on land, this is a great way to get dogs into shape. Regular swimming sessions will help build muscle. The added muscle mass can prevent injuries, especially at an older age. At first your dog may be hesistant to spend a lot of time swimming, this is quite normal. He or she needs to adjust to water – but you should see a gradual increase in time spend swimming.
