Riverside Dog Boarding
The first thing that we do when we get new people working here at our Riverside dog boarding facility is to give them a extensive course onand their bodies. Topics that are especially important are how stay cool in the heat and also their ears, eyes, throats and noses. The fairly thin tongue of the dog is used mainly for guiding to the throat, for licking the coat clean, and for perspiration. When a dog is overheated, it cools off by hanging its tongue out and panting. As it pants, the evaporation of perspiration from its tongue cools the animal. The dog also sweats through the pads on its paws and--slightly--through its skin. A dog's ears either stick up or hang down. The earliest probably had erect ears, but the ears began to droop in smaller, later breeds because of excessive ear skin. Dogs have a fine sense of hearing. They can hear sounds at frequencies too high for people to hear. This is why can respond to "silent" whistles. Each eye of a dog has three eyelids, the main upper and lower lids and a third lid hidden between them in the inner corner of the eye. The third eyelid can sweep across the transparent cornea of the eye and clean it like a windshield wiper. The head and body of a dog are connected by its neck. The neck may be long or short, depending on the size of the seven bones that support it. The length of the vocal cords in the neck is a factor influencing the pitch and loudness of a dog's voice--its barks, grunts, and howls. With our "learn before you touch" policy here in the Riverside dog boarding facility we assure that all our have the best treatment possible.
