Is your dog difficult to manage? Is your dog chewing up some of your favorite things? Perhaps your dog needs some obedience lessons. Look at this piece to get your dog in check.
Make your home dog-proof. Create a safe area to bring a new puppy into the home. Hide medications and chemicals, cover your trash, and put food where he can’t get to it. Since some plants are very harmful because of their toxicity, it’s best to get rid of them or put them in an area that the dog cannot get to.
It’s good to give hugs, but avoid giving kisses. While getting kisses from your dog may seem cute, your dog’s mouth is extremely dirty. He probably doesn’t mind eating dirt, enjoys drinking water from the toilet if he can get at it, and tries in vain to clean himself with his tongue. It’s just a myth that your dog’s mouth is just as, or cleaner, than yours. This is simply false.
Be sure your dog is neutered or spayed. Research has proven that this can reduce your dog’s risk of cancer and make them healthier in general. Not only that, but neutered and spayed dogs feel less need to wander away from home, so they are not as likely to be hit by a vehicle or become lost.
Use flea treatments with caution. Some of them contain chemicals that can increase the risk of cancer in children, and are 1,000 times as strong as the safe levels recommended by the EPA. Discuss any concerns with your veterinarian, and see if he has more holistic treatment options that might help to keep your pet free from fleas and your family safe.
Dog behaviors will now improve. You don’t have to sit back and watch the dog destroy your home or growl at everybody. The dog’s good behaviors is in your hands. Use the things you’ve learned here so that you can teach your dog what to do.
