Dog Care 101 Your Guide To Dog Care

Dog care: it’s one of the most rewarding things you’ll do in your life and one of the hardest. As pet owners, we want to keep our fur babies happy, healthy and safe while under our care. Unfortunately, we can’t always be there to watch them, but that doesn’t mean we can’t provide the best care possible for our pets.

Dog care isn’t rocket science, but there are enough facets to consider that it can be easy to get overwhelmed. I’m here to cut through all the noise and give you a straightforward guide to dog care basics.

Get your dog vaccinated and spayed/neutered: Regularly taking your dog to the vet is extremely important. Your vet will be able to take care of any medical issues. Provide your dog with vaccines and get them spayed or neutered, which is incredibly important. Spaying or neutering your dog can prevent unwanted behaviour and health problems, so it’s best to do it early on. Your vet can help you find the right time for this procedure.

Keep up with grooming and nail trimming: Your pup needs regular grooming—brushing their coat, bathing them, cleaning their eyes and ears, checking their teeth—and their claws will need to be trimmed at least once per month. If you don’t want to go through this process yourself (or if your pet doesn’t want to sit still), plenty of groomers in every area can help out.

Feed them high-quality food: You’ll want to make sure your pup has access to plenty of high-quality food so they can grow up big and strong! A good rule of thumb is that they should eat twice per day—once in the morning and once at night. Also, make sure their food is appropriate for their age, breed, and size; large breeds need more calories than small breeds do, for example.

Clean Fresh Water: Provide clean water at all times! Just as you don’t like drinking from a dirty cup, your dog doesn’t want to drink from a dirty bowl. Clean water is essential for keeping your pet happy and hydrated.

Training: Training your dog plays an integral part in keeping them happy and healthy. Proper training will make life easier for you and your dog, strengthening your bond. Allowing your relationship to grow by spending quality time playing, training, or feeding them will ultimately lead to a happy furry life.

So there you have it. Dog care done right. Hopefully, this guide has helped you understand what it takes to be a responsible dog owner and that dogs are not just merchandise to be bought and sold. Hopefully, if you’re about to bring home your own pup, this guide has helped prepare you for the journey ahead. Inspiring you to embark on a personal journey of discovery with your furry friend.
