Thread: Urgent Help Needed.

  1. #1

    Smile Urgent Help Needed.

    Hi guys.


    So, we have an english assignment which is to write a speech on something to demonstrate. Eg, How to Apply Make-Up.

    We have to write a speech regarding how to do something, my problem is I don't know what to do it on!

    I really, really want to do it on something about dogs. But what?

    I thought about the following ;

    How to bath a dog.
    How to cut a dogs nails.
    How to train a dog to walk on the lead.
    How to groom a dog.



    I thought that how to groom a dog would be best as I can include many things in it and the speech has to go for 3-5 minutes so as there are so many things in the whole grooming area, that should get me 3-5 minutes easy. Plus I have a book on dog grooming.


    Does anybody have any other How To's regarding dogs? This is the topic I know how to do most apart from Soccer, which is already taken.



    I really need your help I have to tell the teacher which topic I am doing tomorrow! And we only found out today...


    PLEASE HELP ME!

    Thanks in advance!

    If you like the dog grooming one I'd go with that its important that whatever you choose to do you're really interested in it, so good choice of topic

    Other than that I would do it on how to train a dog to (whatever)

    Hope it all goes well

    Why don't you go through how you groom your dog?
    Firstly write down each step that you normally would do and what you use i.e. shampoo conditioner, where you bath your dog, drying, brushing, cutting nails either prior or after bath!

    Thanks RR!

    I will wait for other opinions as well.

    Just have to ask my teacher tomorrow if I am allowed to do this topic.

    Belle, I'd choose the grooming topic, it covers so many things, from bathing to brushing.

    I'd cover

    bathing (how you do it)
    shampoo you use (eg malaseb vs normal dog shampoo vs human shampoo)
    checking ears (for wax, possible ear infections, knotted ear hair etc)
    checking nails (not to cut the quick and if you do how to stop it)
    brushing (slicker brush, comb, etc)

    Have a look through the Health section and the sub forum for grooming, I think you'll find more than enough to fill 5 minutes!

    Some ideas:

    How to run with a dog
    How to teach a dog to catch
    How to potty train your dog
    How to teach manners to your dog (go through things like having your dog sit before eating and allow you to touch its food and toys without growling, for example)
