Things to be Cautious About When You Own a Dog

If you are someone who is really looking for a good pet to have, you should really get a dog because dogs can truly make you happy and they are really loyal pets as well. There are so many people who love dogs and who really want to keep dogs for themselves. If you do not own a dog yet, it may be time for you to get your very own dog because you know that a dog will really make you happy and cheerful in days when you are down low. Dogs are man’s best friends and this is really true indeed. You may just got a dog and you still do not know how to take care of it; if you have a new dog, there are certain things that you should be watchful for and we are going to look at some of these things here.

One thing that you should be aware about when you just get a new puppy is that they can chew everything. The reason why these puppies chew on a lot of things is because their teeth are still growing out and this can hurt so they will really want to chew on something to lessen the pain in their teeth. If you do not give your puppy any good toys to chew at, they will chew anything from shoes to couches to chairs. If you have new furniture, you may want to keep it away for the meantime while your puppy is grown so that they will not chew on it. If your puppy is really bored, they will also want to chew on things because this can really relieve their boredom as well; giving them toys will also help with this problem so you really have to get some toys for your new puppy.

Puppies, like babies will poop anytime and anywhere so you should be careful of this as well. Puppies trained at a young age, will really remember that they are not allowed to poop or pee in the house and when they do want to go, they will make you know it so that you can take them out of the house and they can do their business there. You may have old dogs that you have had for years already and they probably still do not know about not pooping or peeing in the house yet because you have never trained them well. Puppies can not hold their poop in for too long so you always have to make sure to take them out every once in a while. If your dogs have fleas, you should really get flea medicine for your dogs because this can help.
