We think we all know so much about our four-legged furry friends, but did you know any of these facts? Let us know over on our social media…

Dogs have their own ‘fingerprint’

Dogs’ paws are all pretty generic and you normally can’t tell one from the other, but their noses are actually pretty unique, just like a human’s fingerprint. This means you can identify them by their noses.

Dogs have dreams too

If you’ve ever watched your dog twitch while sleeping or even look like they’re running sideways, then it’s most likely that they’re dreaming. They dream just like we do, just maybe not about the same things.

Dogs can fall in love

A professor at Claremont Graduate Univeristy, Paul Zak in California found out that dogs actually releases oxytocin, which is in fact a love hormone.

Some breeds of dogs are rarer than pandas

Yes, it’s true, a Dandie Dinmont Terrier is actually considered rarer than the giant panda.

Dogs hear 4 times as far as humans

A dogs’ frequency range is 67 to 45,000 hertz where as a human’s is only 64 to 23,000 hertz.

Quick fire facts…

  • Corgi is welsh for “dwarf dog”
  • The dog breed, ‘basenji’ is actually the only dog that can’t bark
  • A dogs’ smell is a humongous 10,000 times stronger than a human
  • Because of their webbed feet, Newfoundlands are excellent swimmers
  • Dalmatians are born completely white and their spots are developed over time
  • Dogs can have at least 18 muscles in each ear

One more fun fact… The Gencon All-In-One is a One piece from headcollar to end of lead. When your dog pulls, both loops tighten restricting the whole head, the dog backs off from the restriction. Only gentle pressure is needed, and there is no need to jerk. Make sure the Gencon is fitted correctly and it is slackening when the pressure is taken off the lead.

  • Does your dog pull on the lead?
  • Can your dog be aggressive towards other dogs or people?
  • Is your dog over excitable or just too strong for you?
  • Do you find your dog very nervous or timid?
  • Does your dog scavenge?

Gencon is the answer!

It’s different to any other dog training lead or headcollar available!

The Gencon® All-in-1 and Headcollars are made from soft yet durable fabric and are specifically designed not to pull up into your dog’s eyes or uncomfortably turn their head, making them the perfect lead training accessories for grown dogs and puppy walking.

The Gencon consists of two simple loops that apply gentle pressure when your dog pulls, the lead gently but effectively stops your dog pulling forwards.

Hudson is incredible on his Gencon and over the months his confidence has increased and his anxiety lessened. The Gencon ensures no pulling and no lunges. Our walks are an absolute pleasure. I have complete confidence in the Gencon and have recommended it to a number of people.

Max, my ESS is still a puppy but weighs 16kg already so walking him is a struggle. A lady recommended I buy a Gencon lead. She has an active Cocker Spaniel and it was an “Instant” relief walking her dog. Oh my goodness, I cannot believe how true her words are of “Instant”. We’ve been on a walk & I’ve come back with my arms in their sockets still! This will make a huge difference for both Max & myself. This is a massive game changer!

Here at Woodside, we use the Gencon all-in-1 with clip to collar. We have found them simple to use and very effective at controlling any size dog. Most dogs accept the Gencon quickly with little fuss, making training so much easier. Gencon’s are now part of our uniform and we recommend them to any new owner taking home one of our four legged friends.

The Gencon extra wide head collar is a brilliant piece of kit. Using it has transformed my headstrong flatcoat into a manageable dog who walks demurely by my side. There is no pressure and just the lightest contact, so we can enjoy on lead walking instead of an unseemly battle.
