I love pets and taking care of them is a pleasure. I love to see them happy and make them healthy .
If you're a dog owner, chances are you're always looking for ways to make your pet feel happier and healthier. Here are a few of my tips for taking care of your dog.
1) Feed them a high-quality kibble and supplement with fresh food.
Use treats sparingly and only for your dog's good behavior. Ensure they get plenty of exercise. Make sure they don't overexert themselves by constantly running or doing activities they're not accustomed to. Breed-specific vaccinations should be done when puppies are 8 weeks old.

2) Make sure they get plenty of exercise.
Dogs need to get their daily exercise. Just like humans, dogs will burn calories to stay fit. If they don't get enough exercise, their quality of life will decline. Most people will have trouble finding the time for their dog to exercise daily. This is especially true for you, if you're a busy professional and your dog is the only creature you have. But there's a way to get fit and stay active without neglecting your dog. Start by getting a dog running harness and finding somewhere safe to run your dog. There are also several dog toys you can buy online, which will help keep your dog moving. Make sure you bathe your dog regularly. The cold and dry winter climate will dry out your dog's fur. Not to mention it will make them feel much cozier if they're clean.
3) Provide stimulation for them mentally.
Get your dog on a schedule for walks. If they get to run and play and have those rewards throughout the day, they're less likely to get bored. Set up play dates with other dogs (or just take your dog to your friend's house). Heres how I set up playdates with my dogs. Set up a dog daycare in your home. Check with your vet to see how much care is necessary when grooming. Provide them with a dog house. Teach them commands to work with them. You could even get your dog on a clicker training program. Snuggle and play with your dog. If you have a dog bed, make sure it has enough filling for a long and healthy life. When I first got my dogs, I just bought a flat, chewy dog bed for my dogs because it was cheap and I knew my dogs would be happy.
4) Get them a bed and toys.
The bed should be durable and waterproof. My dog won't go outside without his blue duck. If you're feeling a little extra adventurous, get them bedding made from recycled materials, as they're also great for cleaning up after them.
5) Create a routine for them.
As a dog owner, I've learned that they should have a set schedule for the day. I feed them at the same time every day, and make sure that they get fed around the same time every day. If they don't, they don't eat, and if they don't eat, they feel sluggish and depressed. Then I'll give them one piece of chicken before they can start eating, and after that I'll put the rest on the ground. They all eat together, but they all have their own meal to eat.
6) Provide them with affection and positive feedback.
If your dog is happy and healthy, you will be happier and healthier. To be the best owner you can be, think of your dog as a baby. Before you start training them, be sure to spoil them with plenty of love and affection. Treat them as if they are your child. Don't forget to give them treats and cuddles too. Be sure your dog has a good diet and is getting enough exercise. Provide your dog with a balanced diet with nutritious foods that are easy to digest. At the same time, make sure your dog is getting plenty of physical activity throughout the day. If you want to go the extra mile, take your dog for daily walks.
7) Don't leave them in a crate for long periods of time.
This is especially important for puppies, who often don't realize how much they can actually move around. They can be confined for hours and end up feeling depressed and anxious. If your pup seems like they can't get comfortable, try crating your dog on an off-day, or if possible, try doing an activity with your dog to help expend some energy. If your pup is your smaller dog, it's easy to get a second or third place to play with. Feed your dog on schedule. Puppies are very energy hungry, so don't just leave your pup to "sleep it off" during meal times. Leave your dog with a full belly so they're feeling full and happy when they're awake. Clean up after them. Dogs need clean surfaces to eat, drink, and do other things. You should be doing this at least once a day.
8) Teach them basic commands.
I love how trainers differentiate between command-based and react-based training. The former is a course of action and the latter is an immediate response. With command-based training, the handler has to tell the dog what to do. In react-based training, the dog is already doing the job, the handler just has to react in a certain way. In both cases, the dog will learn the appropriate behaviors, which makes them much easier to train, and are easier to maintain. Like many trainers, I recommend training puppies in a crate for several weeks to teach them commands. A crate has many benefits, not the least of which is giving your dog some space to feel comfortable in their new environment.
9) Provide them with enough attention.
If you have a dog who is stressed out because they can't get some TLC from you, you'll want to give them lots of attention. Always make sure you have someone who can interact with your dog on a regular basis. You can also help by taking them to the park to help burn off energy. Make sure they get exercise. When you take your dog to the park, walk your dog at least three to five times a week. . Give them extra treats. Treats are always a great way to reward your dog for their hard work. When you first get your dog, give them one or two bones a day.
10) Give them a healthy, happy life.
Good nutrition and regular exercise are your keys to success. Puppies need approximately 20 percent more food than adult dogs, but they also need less exercise. Make sure your dog is walking on a leash at least five times a day. Dogs can get sedentary if they don't get enough exercise, and your dog will be ready for a nap at the end of the day if he doesn't get out to see the world. After a full day of playing with their toys, dogs sometimes refuse to walk. Instead, they'll spend most of their day lounging or sleeping. These dogs need to be taken outside often to get them moving again. Regularly clean your dog's ears to prevent ear infections.
