Tip 1: Pick the right dog
Start off your great dog owner’s journey by picking a canine that best fits you and your lifestyle.
Never buy a dog on an impulse. Evaluate pros and cons, and examine your lifestyle, work and personal commitments, daily physical activity, and, of course, finances.
Tip 2: Never hit them
From the training perspective as well as humane perspective, this is never an appropriate thing to do.
Regardless of how irritated you get at your dog, hitting will never solve your problem. What you will get out of this is a dog who’s afraid of you. Instead, teach them and train them while simultaneously practicing patience and compassion.
Tip 3: Play more with them
Don’t be a couch potato yourself and take them out for a fun game of fetch.
Remember that even older dogs want to have some decent quality time with their owner, kill three birds with one stone by combining longer walks, playing games, and meeting other dog owners into one 1-hour session a couple of times a week.
Tip 4: Supply better dog food
Be honest when evaluating the kind of dog food you give to your pal and if possible, don’t skimp on it.
Is your dog getting all the nutrients s/he needs from the kibble or canned food you provide? If it’s the super cheap stuff and you cannot afford anything more expensive on a daily basis, maybe treat them to a premium quality food on certain occasions. And don’t forget about healthy dog treats.
Tip 5: Give them their own space
Dogs love to have their own place.
The great thing about dogs is that they won’t mind sleeping anywhere and they don’t complain. Dogs really like to know there’s always something that belongs to them: it could be just a small mat in the corner of your living room. Anything will do.
Tip 6: Brush their teeth
80% of dogs develop oral diseases by the time they’re 3 years old.
If a dog develops any kind of oral disease as a result of poor dental hygiene, there’s a chance that your dog’s heart, kidneys, and liver might also become seriously affected. Brushing your dog’s teeth regularly and giving good quality chew bones is extremely beneficial.
