10 Tips to keep your dog happy and healthy

Love your dog?  Really?

You must know what’s right for them by showing your love and proper care.

Dogs repeat behaviors that give results they want. They are capable of understanding what’s not favorable to them.

Properly trained, a man can be dog’s best friend. So, humans should first get trained on how to treat dogs.

 

10 Tips to keep your dog happy and healthy!

1   FREEDOM

Never keep your grown-up dog tied. Give him freedom to roam around the house.

2  FOOD

Grown-up dogs need food twice a day. Begging for food is a natural habit for dogs. They want to keep eating all the time. Never share your food with your pet on the dining table. If you practice that habit, your pet may reach a level of barking at you demanding food.

Never give him food which he is not supposed to eat (Read our blog on “10 Foods you should never feed your dogs”). Love doesn’t mean you keep feeding him.

3   CHEWING & BITING

Puppies want to be busy chewing and biting everything around. Chewing toys will prevent your puppy from biting any harmful object that he can find.

Get 4 to 5 good quality, hygienic chewing toys. Keep changing the toy every day, as your puppy may not like the same toy to chew all the time. Correct them by a firm “NO”. Offer chewing treats.

4   WATER

Always give your pet purified water that you drink. Keep enough water in the bowl. If not, he may drink water from leaking pipes and toilet bowls. If you bathe him with purified water, you’re one more step ahead. Through contaminated water your pet gets infected. Dehydration can be dangerous for your dog. Sunken eyes, dry mouth and loss of appetite are the symptoms that need vet’s attention quickly.

5   GROOMING

Regular grooming – Bathing, cleaning, and nail-clipping regularly is a must. Comb regularly to keep him shining and healthy. Trim his nails regularly. Overgrown nails are a big discomfort and prone to break. Scratching with long nails will make his wounds bigger. You may even shave his hair completely (dogs with long, bushy hair)  during summer to get rid of fleas and identify burns and skin infections.

6   PLACE TO REST

Assign your dog a clean and hygienic place to rest. Give him a soft bed that will make him comfortable to rest his bones and joints.

Make him feel you’re protecting him and treating him well like your child. When dogs sleep on the floor, they get infected fast, especially through floor cleaners.

7   NEUTERING

Neutering your dog will help him in many ways in terms of reduced infection, aggression and bad behaviors. But it has its own disadvantages depending upon the health condition of your dog. Here, check with your vet.

8  TOILET BEHAVIORS

Your pet’s inappropriate toileting inside home will upset you. You don’t need to be a professional trainer to correct this habit. If you find it tough to take him outside every time, with a few days of training, you may identify a toilet inside home.

Once trained well, he will be disciplined to go only inside the toilet. Training and teaching habits are for puppies. Grown up pets won’t mend ways that easily.

9  VACCINATIONS

Make sure to take your dog to a vet for vaccinations as per schedule recommended. Keep the vaccination record handy in a book and in your phone, as well. Vaccinations help your dog keep a healthy immune system and protect your dog from highly infectious diseases. Missing vaccinations may cost even life – That of your pet or humans.

10  A GOOD COMPANION – YOU!

Your pet expects you to be beside him always, though not possible. But, never leave him alone for a long time. Beating and hitting your dog will lead to bad behavioral issues (for both).

Your pet has a shorter life than you. He returns your love and care a hundred times more. Your real care and love will make you the best friend for your lovely dog!
