Russian Toy Terrier
Many people think that the Russian toy is a bit of a nuisance. It does not require much physical exertion, it is easy to settle down and dominates. It’s nice and that’s it. You’ve just read the biggest myths about small dog breeds, not to mention the Russian Toy!
The Russian toy is a tiny dog with a big heart and courage. It weighs no more than 3 kg, but it can attack a massive wolfhound without hesitation (from which the owners fall asleep more than once). At the same time, a dog from a good kennel, where the breeder from the first days of life takes care of the correct socialization of the puppy, will not be so eager to fight and will get along well with other animals.
If there are a lot of dogs in your area, it is worth taking our baby out on a leash with a tag attached. Thanks to him, in the event of an escape (which probably should not happen if the dog is on a leash, but it is worth breathing in the cold), you can very quickly find the owner. High-quality lace and tag will keep you safe while walking.
Russian long-haired and short-haired toy
We distinguish between long-haired and short-haired toys. Russian short-haired toy for allergy sufferers will be an excellent companion in life, because it has no undercoat. His hair is short and close to his body. The Russian long-haired toy has straight or slightly wavy hair. The large ears are adorned with beautiful, charming fringes. On the tail and on the outside of the hind legs, the hair is longer.
No wonder the Russian toy belongs to the group of decorative dogs and companion dogs. But this is not just a dog that should be beautiful. What it is? The Russian toy is a volcano of energy. She loves physical activity and fun. He will faithfully accompany you during a short jog in the forest or park.
Russian educational toy
The toy is very characteristic and likes to dominate. If you have other pets at home, the little dog will certainly want to subdue them, and it will probably succeed. The tendency to dominate makes the Russian toy need a strong and wise leader who not only understands the dog’s needs, but also cares about his safety, setting clear boundaries. If you are inconsistent, the toy will hit your head. Plus, meeting this amazing dog can be a good hands-on lesson for you in setting boundaries and asserting yourself.
In addition, animals (not just Russian toys) need conscious leaders who can set limits for them. Then they feel safe with people. Boundaries also allow you to build healthy relationships based on trust and caring.
Russian toy is very nimble, learns quickly and willingly. During training, you can teach the dog not only commands, obedience, but also interesting tricks that will bring the kid a lot of joy, and will cause respect and admiration among friends.
Russian children’s toy
The Russian toy is a friendly but very affectionate dog. She gets along very well with older children (and vice versa). The kids could unintentionally harm him.
Home agility is a great idea for a creative pastime with Russian Toy. The dog will gladly overcome the obstacle course. It is important to adapt the track to the physique and needs of the dog. Some owners decide to take agility seriously and compete with their dog in small category competitions. Start YouTube and search for videos on the Internet. They will inspire you to build your own dexterity track, but also show you the character of the toy!
The toy not only gets along well with children. The longer legs allow you to take it with you on longer hikes, or if you find your friend tired, just tuck him under your arm!
Russian toy is very family oriented and attached to its owners. He envies them when they ignore him. He will love your closeness. It can follow you step by step and move closer to your feet as you sit down at your computer or lie down next to you on a soft pillow while you watch an interesting movie.
Russian toyya health
The Russian toy has a delicate physique, but very good health. This is a long-lived dog that faithfully accompanies its owners until the age of 18. Sometimes his large eyes are irritated by dust and his tear ducts become clogged, but this is not always the case and rarely happens.
What you should pay attention to is the formation of tartar. If you notice this tendency in your dog, brush his teeth with a special toothpaste or treatment to get rid of plaque. Pet stores have toothpaste, a finger brush, and gum massage kits. A balanced diet is extremely important for a dog’s health. Never buy groceries in supermarkets. They can be harmful.
Russian toy breeding
The Russian toy breed is rare. This also affects the higher price of the dog, which ranges from PLN 4 to PLN 9000 in well-known kennels with a good reputation. Of course, we are talking about proven breeders who care about the health of each individual.
We strongly advise against buying a dog from a pseudo-kennel. Pseudo kennels offer competitive prices, but very often they do not take care of the health and socialization of the dogs properly. Dogs born in such a place often have health problems (and treatment is expensive), as well as problems with socialization: they can be aggressive. In short, you are not buying a Russian toy, but a pig in a poke.
Russian toy – the result
The Russian toy is an extremely intelligent, inquisitive and sociable dog. He is overflowing with energy, which manifests itself, among other things, in the barking conversation. He loves people and is very family oriented. He also loves movement, so if you like to laze around and do not like physical activity – we do not recommend buying this dog, unless you are planning a small revolution in your life!
