Educational training From what age to train a puppy? A puppy can learn since birth, but until he was blind and deaf, very difficult to find him suitable reinforcements. At the age of about 2 weeks the puppy opens his eyes and he begins to leave his “lair” – the place in which he lives a happy mother with offspring. Coming out of the house, he meets with the outside world. At this time, training is easier, but the classes can cause great anxiety to his mother, and it is unsafe for dogs-mother and puppy, and sometimes for people.

At this time he needs to learn the language of their own species, otherwise he would not be able to communicate with relatives, be interested in the opposite sex, will not be able to take care of their own offspring.

Thus was derived to reproduce offspring. The Bengal cat is a rare breed in our country. Yes in other countries it is not very numerous. And, meeting these cats for the first time, paying attention to their unusual appearance, “newcomers” even I prick up my ears, I’m afraid. But people who are familiar with the cats of this breed love them very much, just not the soul of tea. In principle, such a versatile attitude to these cats is not surprising, since she was bred with the intention that by their very existence show the tenderness and affection of a forest predator to a pet, the animal in hand. The idea was to get people to think about the dangers of the destruction of leopards – in fact, seeing a Bengal cat, people will correlate this image with the house and calm, not predation. This idea belonged to the American biologist, author of the experiment – Jane mill. By the way, between the British and prodiamesinae there are differences, but they are not particularly significant.
