Get Educated About Dogs With These Simple To Follow Tips

paw trackerAren't puppies adorable?

They are fun and adorable, but that's not all. Sooner or later your adorable puppy will grow into
a dog. He will still be adorable, but he will need you
to make sure that he is living a healthy lifestyle.
Here are some tips to make sure that you can have a happy,
healthy canine.

If you have a new dog in the house, be careful with how much
freedom you give him or her initially. The freedom to
have access to all areas of your home needs to be
earned. If you allow your pet to roam too soon,
you may have to deal with damaged furniture
and other issues. Use baby gates to help restrict your dog's movements, and house him in an appropriately sized crate when you cannot watch him.

Don't forget to trim your dog's nails regularly.
Long nails can make him uncomfortable, cause injury to his feet
and will ruin your floors. If he makes a "click" sound when he walks on hard wood or linoleum, that's a
good indication it's time for a trim. Ask your vet to
do it if necessary.

It is essential that you think long and hard before you decide to make
a dog apart of your life. There are so many things involved, and it is easy to fall in love with an adorable
puppy face. Take the time to consider everything
first so that you can be confident that
you are capable of managing it all.

Never punish your dog for being curious about a new baby.
Instead, allow your dog to investigate the smells and sights that
come with a baby at a safe distance. If the dog is made to feel like the baby has infringed on his home,
the very worst is far more likely to happen.

Dogs need water just as much as humans do. In fact, approximately 70% of their bodies are water!

You need to be sure your dog always has fresh, clean water to drink.
Keep bottled water on hand in case of emergencies. You want to make sure your pet has something safe to drink no
matter what.

Make sure you know the rules of the park you are in before you take your dog.

Many parks do not allow dogs on the trails. Dogs can scare the wildlife and some dogs can destroy the natural plants
as well. Pay attention to the rules and do not take your dogs on trails that specifically
say "no dogs allowed."?

You should have your dogs spayed or neutered
before they reach the age of six months. Spaying before your
dog is mature can cut their risk of developing
breast cancer. Neutering prevents males dogs from developing issues that may affect the testes
and prostate. The neutering process also stops several breeds
of dogs from being aggressive.

If you want your dog to learn to "sit", start by holding a cookie,
or other treat, above his head. This will cause him to look up.
When he looks up, gently push his hind end down, and give the command
to sit. Give him the treat, and praise him. Soon, he will sit just by hearing the command and
seeing your hand go up, and eventually will obey to the "sit" command alone.

Some people think it is cute to give their dog alcohol, but it is dangerous.
In high doses, alcohol is toxic to humans
and even more so for animals. In addition, it affects co-ordination, causing accidents,
and can decrease a dog's respiratory rate.
Even small amounts of alcohol can kill a dog.

Your dog is a member of your family and when they go missing it
can bring fear, worry, panic and sadness. Make posters right away and put them up
all over town. Contact animal control and the local shelters to let them
know your dog is missing. You can also post on different Facebook pages dedicated
to reuniting owners and their pets.

It is very important for you to keep your dog's ears clean. Keeping the inside of the ears clean will help prevent
infections of the ear. This is also a good time for you to
inspect the ear for fleas, ticks and any other pests that could
have made your dog's ear home.

If you are having trouble training your dog, see a professional.
A lot of people wait until their problems are enormous, but if you
would see a dog trainer as soon as you start having difficulty,
you will find training goes more easily. Not only that, but you will save yourself a major headache.

Be prepared to have a lot of patience with your dog during potty-training.
Much like children, dogs learn at different speeds and ages and your canine
may be slow or stubborn. Have good resources at your fingertips to assist your efforts and remember not to get angry when your dog has "accidents" as that will only impede his progress.

It is best to establish a schedule for your dog.
Feed it two or three times a day and go for walks at fixed hours.
Following a schedule will prevent you from forgetting a meal or a walk.
Your dog will eventually get used to this schedule and you
will not have to worry about accidents.

Never give your dog milk! It's not necessary for his body and
he doesn't have the proper enzymes to digest it anyway.

Feeding your dog cow's milk can lead to chronic
diarrhea and leave him with an upset stomach, among other
health problems. Stick with plain old water for a healthy and hydrated dog.

If your dog is prone to getting burs in his coat, keep a can of Crisco in your kitchen cupboard.
Next time you notice a bur, put gloves on to protect yourself
and work the Crisco around until you can pry the bur out.
Give him a nice shampoo to get the shortening out later.

These simple tips for taking good care of your dog apply whether your pup is
a terrier or a retriever, old or young, furry or hairless.
That is what makes using everything you have learned so important
- you know it will apply in your situation! Love your dog daily by
doing all you can to be the best owner.
