Seven Tips for Taking Care of Your Pet Dog

You can probably apply these tips to your cat as well, heck maybe even to your parrot though the requirements are a little different for different animals but if you think in broad lines everything is possible really so don’t scratch me on it.

Keep Your House Clean

Needless to say that you need to provide a clean environment for your pet so if you’re a messy person like myself you might want to hire a house cleaner at least once a week so she can do the floors, windows, and curtains once in a while as these are the bare essentials. Your dog isn’t sitting on your table or your chairs so no need to take care of that. Just once a week is plenty to keep your house frisk.

Fresh Water is An Absolute Must

Many people don’t think about this as we save our drinks in bottles in the refrigerator but your pet’s water is right out in the open and needs to be refreshed at least three times a day. Yes, homeless dogs drink whatever they can get, from rivers or pools or whatever but they are used to it and have a strong stomach, you can’t compare that to the pet that you had since it was a puppy.

Don’t Make Your Dog Fat

Obesity is just as unhealthy for humans as it is for animals so don’t feed them whatever you are eating, get a solid diet food in the house for your dog. There’s an abundance of choice these days so there’s no reason not to do it. Healthy pets live long life’s and that’s exactly what you want if you’re a pet lover.

Doctor Visits are a Necessity

Dogs don’t talk so regular examinations should be on top of your to-do list. Visiting a veterinarian isn’t that expensive for a regular medical check-up so don’t skip on it or you will most likely regret it later because the operation will cost that much that you have to put your dog to sleep and you will never forgive yourself for that if it could’ve been prevented easily.

Go Out For a Walk

No, not just 5-minutes around the block, that’s only okay for a quick pee when you wake up and before you go to sleep. Dogs need exercise so take them out at least twice a day for 30 minutes at least. If you don’t have time for it you might want to reconsider getting a dog and choose a cat instead as they can go out on their own, and as long as you take good care of them they will always come back. In the weekends it’s also a nice idea to take them out for a few hours so they can really let off steam. The reward a happy dog that will love you forever.

Talk With Your Dog

Although your dog won’t understand a word you say, except for a few things like sit, stand, eat, blah, blah, dogs do love attention and if you talk to them in a soft way they will enjoy it nonetheless. Don’t forget to pet them either, especially around their breast as they love it. The more love you give, the more you get in return. That’s how it works with everything in this world.

Get The Right Pet Supplies

Not everyone has floor heating in their home so if it’s winter and you know the floor is cold then the least you can do is buy a mat. If you want to take it a step further because you don’t have double glazed windows you can consider a heated pet pad, your dog will love you for it, and they aren’t all that expensive, just trust me on that.
