A high amount of black pepper can put your dog's health at risk, which is why it's important to stay on the safe side, always.

Too much black pepper or capsaicin can cause hemorrhoids, respiratory problems, and burning sensations in the stomach.

Generally, an adult average sized dog at 12 months of age, weighs about twice their weight at 4 months of age, or 2.5x the weight at 14 weeks.

Adult giant breeds grow more slowly, take longer to mature, and don't reach adult growth until they're at least 16-18 months old.

Healthy gums should be bubble gum-pink in color.

Some dogs, especially those of certain breeds, such as the chow chow, have black coloring in their mouths.

This is normal pigmentation for some dogs.

It is the result of microscopic melanin granule deposits, and it is not something to be concerned about.

A fairly accurate calculation you can do to predict an adult height for your puppy is to multiply her height at six months by 100 and divide that answer by 75.

For example, a puppy who is 8 inches at the shoulder when she is 6 months old should be between 10.5 and 11 inches at the shoulder when she is finished growing.

Check his ears.

If your puppy's ears stand up when he gets excited, they probably will stand permanently by the time he is 6-months-old.

Another way to tell if your pup's ears are likely to stand is by observing where they are set on the head.

Unlike cats, dogs do not have retractile claws.

The color of the nail is determined by the color of the surrounding skin and hair.

This dog has black claws on the brown paw and a mixture of white and black claws on the white paw.

Always remember to trim the dew claws that are located on the inner surface of the paw.

Long-term behavior changes are usually positive if the spay or neuter was performed at a young age.

For example, male dogs may become less aggressive.

This means that some dogs will "calm down" over the next few months, while others may take years to calm down.
