Open The Can Of Worms About Dog Ownership

Have you always dreamed of having an amazing dog? What you actually get could be very different. Still, you have to take care of your dog in the best way that you can, and the tips that follow will help you do that.

TIP! It takes quite a bit of money to take good care of a dog. Dogs require quality food, medical care, and general supplies that can vary in costs.

Hugs are great, but steer clear of kisses. Dog kisses may be seen as cute, but their mouths aren’t all that clean. Dogs love to dig in garbage, get into the toilet, and then they lick their butts, yuck! Many people believe that the human mouth has more germs than that of a dog – this isn’t true. This is simply false.

A physical is good for you, and a yearly vet trip is good for your dog. Obviously, dogs don’t speak, so it can be hard to figure out when they’re having problems with their bones or teeth. A checkup every year can make sure that issues are caught before he is suffering too much.

TIP! Be sure your house is dog-proofed. Prior to bringing the pooch home, check that the whole home is safe.

Dogs don’t talk so you should learn his non-verbal language. If you notice your dog is hesitant to meet a particular person or dog, don’t force it. This may cause another dog or person to get bit. You need to keep your eyes open for these signs.

Always make sure to keep any prescription medications away from your dog. The same holds true for over-the-counter meds. Swallowing even one pill can end very badly, with a sick or dying dog. Call your vet as soon as possible if your dog swallows any pills.

TIP! It’s good to give hugs, but avoid giving kisses. It is unsanitary to be licked by a dog.

When it comes to dog flea treatments, you should proceed with caution. Many have ingredients that are dangerous to kids. Talk to your vet about safer options, especially when there are kids around.

Try hand signals in conjunction with verbal commands when training your dog. Your dog might learn commands more easily using this approach. Try using both ways with your dog to see which works best.

TIP! Spay or neuter your dog. Research has proven that this can reduce your dog’s risk of cancer and make them healthier in general.

Talk with your vet about the foods you should feed your dog. Some foods can cause sickness or an upset stomach. You should be careful when you are feeding your dog.

You would be silly to ignore the great advice at your fingertips. Take it all in and soon enough you will see how much more fun it is to be the owner of a happy dog. If your dog is happy, you will be much more likely to love it unconditionally.
