Feeding And Clean Up
Change Your Dogs Water
Many dog owners who spend most of their time with their dogs seem to forget that you dog thirst and desires water just like any living thing. Ensure that your dog has fresh water to drink at least occasionally and the bowl he uses is cleaned daily. Especially if you live in a rural environment and have a outdoor dog, you don't know what else is drinking from your dog's bowl.
Clean Up Dog Poo Immediately/Poo Training
Don't be fooled by all the nice cute dog ads. Yes, the dogs are cute and cuddly, but they also poo. If you have an indoor dog , he/she must be trained to use the doggy litter box and not the carpet or sofa! There are some people who train their dogs to use the toilet. Yes, some dog owners actually build special dog toilets which their pets can be trained to use and flush. If your dog is a out door dog, always cleanup poo on a daily basis. Uncleaned poo can lead to health hazards such as the breeding of screw worms and eventually flies.
Raw food or Dog Chew Sticks (rawhide)
Dental care is also quite important. By giving your dog raw food, it allows for the cleaning of your dogs teeth. When you feed your dog processed dry or wet foods, your dog teeth will eventually become stained and your dog teeth will eventually need cleaning.
Keep Your Environment Flea and Tick Free
The pesky ticks seems to always want something to do with your dogs life. They hang around the home in dirt, on grass blades and in bushes or shrubs waiting for a chance to itch a ride on your dogs fur. Ensure that garbage is always disposed of and disposed of properly. Keep your dogs groomed and bathed so they are always fresh, healthy and happy.
