How to take care of a dog

Having a dog is a responsibility. You have to care and invest time as it will be your companion and that of your family. The first time you come home with your new pet, take the time to coax it out of the kennel. If you have other pets around, make sure they do not intimidate the newcomer to the pack.

Ensure that you have a nutritious and well-balanced meal prepared for your dog. Again, if your dog is quite active, then feeding times are more often than an inactive one. Take note that there are certain foods which should not be given to dogs such as chocolate (increases the heart rate) and grape (damages kidneys).

An important thing you have to do is to housetrain your dog. It must learn to obey when you command it to sit. For example, do not put down the bowl of food unti it sits. It should only start eating when you say so. Instilling discipline at this stage is helpful if you want your dog to have order in its life.

There are also many dog trainers who can do it for you, if you do not have the time. Although it will cost you money, investing in housetraining is completely worth it if you don't want your furry pal to do its business inside your home or litter anywhere on your grounds.

Like human beings, dogs also need medical care. Find a veterinarian near to your home so you can bring your dog there easily without travelling far. The vet will ensure that your dog has all the vaccinations it needs in addition to seeing to it that it is healthy and free from diseases.

You can also consider putting a microchip on your dog. It will contain all the information about your pet such as name, owner's name and contact details. Don't worry, your pet will not be hurt in the process and the microchip will enable you to locate your dog. In the UK, microchipping of all dogs will be mandatory by 2016.
