|I need my own space!|
As a dog owner you have to meet your dog’s basic needs to ensure health and happiness. Whilst owning a dog is a responsibility, it is not a chore.
Here are some basics to provide:
-A healthy and balanced diet. Choose a quality diet.
-Provide a good home. Dogs are pack animals – they are part of the family and should not be excluded.
-Keep your dog healthy with regular exercise.
-A dog needs his own space: a corner in your kitchen or sitting room or under the stairs. A basket, a cushion, a blanket will do fine.
-Go to the vet regularly. Dogs can have worms, fleas, ear infections without us being aware of them.
-Every dog needs basic grooming. Some more than others.
-Dogs thrive on structure and discipline, and training is paramount to your dog’s quality of life.
It is important to maintain a close bond with your dog. He knows you better than anybody else. He watches you constantly and observes your every move.
