The Biggest Dog In The World

The Mastiff comes from the Tibetan mastiff. Imported into Europe by the Phoenicians, he quickly conquered the hearts of English masters. Dog of war by his origins, he became a herdsman or protector of the English Lords.

Today, one appreciates his talents of the dissuasive guard but especially those of pet dog.
His socialization and his education represent neither particularity nor difficulty when one is logical and one imposes himself as the leader of the pack, something that he accepts and understands quickly and very well.

It is mature, like its large congeners.

Sports masters looking for a dog to accompany them in Sunday jogging. Must change their minds about the choice of a race. Of course, the mastiff will be able to follow its masters everywhere because of although of an imposing size, it is very discreet, even more than some small dogs. But he’s not a sportsman.

The walks will be at his own pace, in a quiet way. Back in his house, he will appreciate finding his small comfort.

Its maintenance is not at all demanding because its hair requires only brushing to remove dead hair and dirt.
The period of growth is, as in all large dogs, delicate. It is important to give him a quality diet.

In this, the breeder and the veterinarian will be able to advise the master.

In order not to damage its framework and cause muscular problems, avoid the brutal efforts.

What Kind Of Tent Do You Need?


The tent for hiking (2 or 3 places) should be light (between 2 and 3.5 kg), space-saving, easy and fast assembly.

Today, the most suitable models are:

– Igloo tents: 2-3 sleepers, from 2.2 Kg to 3.5 Kg.
– the profiled Canadian, taller and broader in front than behind, accommodating 2 or 3 people. They weigh between 1.8 and 2.8 kg.
– Super lightweight domes or tunnels (weight between 2 and 2.9 kg): Helsport, The North Face, Lafuma, James.

These tents are either entirely made of nylon or lined with cotton nylon. They are compact and easy to assemble.

Prices vary according to the materials used (polyester or polyamide, bows in fiber or alloy) and their manufacture. They range from 200 to 500 bucks per pop. These models are only suitable for active hiking. Their sleep capacity is reduced.

The most versatile models are domes or tunnels with advanced, more spacious than some but also heavier. Moreover, their choice is very wide. The simple and low-end models are not hiking tents but so-called extra tents designed for simple and trouble-free use.

As soon as you are subjected to more severe weather conditions (rain, wind, etc.), it is preferable to opt for better-built models.

The materials used: the double roof is made of polyester and the alloy bars (the fiber is heavier and more fragile). The inner tent is either air-permeable nylon, cotton or polycotton, and comfortable in size (about 130-150 cm wide by 200-205 cm deep).

Advances or apses, which measure between 70 and 80 cm, allow the storage of camping equipment. The floor mats should not be too light to be able to withstand the difficulties of the ground.

Do not forget that the tent is the hiker’s major tool. Choose a good model. If you want to see some heavy duty camping equipment check out some tactical gear.

In conclusion, the choice of your tent should be defined by :

– the number of users,
– the terrain,
– climatic conditions,
– the intensity of use.

As for maintenance, the first rule is to let the tent dry before storing it. In case of obligation, take it out as soon as possible to air it and only fold it once dry. Do not forget to re-waterproof your tent from time to time. Some tents (often high-end) offer the possibility of mounting the outer roof first, then the inside.

Really very useful in rainy weather.
