April 13, 2012

One of the best things one can have is a great pet. A cat is a good option, but they are usually super independent and can be somewhat boring companions. A dog is a great choice of pet because not only are they loving and loyal partners, but they are super fun because they have the ability to play and do stuff. Even though a dog is a lot of fun and can be an owner’s best friend, they are a lot of work as well. Taking care of a dog is almost like taking care of a child. Here are some of the basic things one will need to know in order to take care of their dog.

The first thing one must realize when owning a dog is that they need plenty of love and attention from us in order for them to be happy and healthy. Teir is nothing worse then to see a sad dog who is negleted by their owner and is heartbroken all the time. It brings a tear to my eye and it should to you too. One can go for walks witht heir dog and play fetch with them. Always give plenty of praise to your dog and pet them a lot and stuff like that in order for the dog to feel happy and cheerful. Make sure you provide plenty of food and water for the dog so that they will be able to survive.

In addition to love and food, make sure to properly groom your dog too. It is always sad to see a dirty dog who smells like rotten potatoes roaming the streets unattended. Just like you would for your own child, make sure to routinely bathe and groom your dog so that they are looking fresh and feeling so clean. It is important to the dog’s health as well that they are properly groomed. Clipping a dog’s nails is important to the health of the dog’s paws and brushing their teeth is vital to gum health and good breath.

When taking care of a dog, it is the same thing a raising a child. You must provide plenty of love, attention, food, and grooming. A dog can be as rewarding as having a child and everyone knows that they are just as much fun. Dogs are pets that will always be there for you when you need them. It is crucial that you provide the essentials that they need in order to properly take care of them.
