Top 5 Dog Care Tips

March 11, 2021

Dogs are the cutest and most loving companions that you’d probably ever find. They know how to look with sad, gooey eyes until you finally oblige to that walk in the park or toss them a nice bone. They also know how to make messes and have so much fun while at it that you don’t have the heart to reprimand them. 

Caring for your furry companion is one very essential aspect that you shouldn’t take for granted. They are quite delicate, and as such, they require a measure of care to maintain their hygiene and keep them in a bubble of good health. 

Therefore, here are 5 care tips that every dog parent should know: 

  1. Feed Regularly With High-quality Food  

The two keywords here are ‘regularly’ and ‘high-quality’. You might be tempted to feed your dog with human food, and while this isn’t entirely a bad idea, it might not be ideal. 

You should always consult with your veterinarian for recommendations. And a general tip is that the initial ingredients on the label of food that you want to feed your pup with should be some form of meat, not grain or meat by-product. 

Clean water, changed from time to time is vital too! 

  1. Have a Qualified Veterinarian On Board 

Veterinarians are experts on animal health, physiology, and just about everything that has to do with your dog. 

Ensure that the veterinarian whose services you are engaging is reliable and qualified, and you can easily test this by evaluating the responses you get to your questions and interaction with your dog. 

You would also need to get your pet vaccinated and brought in for regular checkups. If you notice anything out of place, your first port of call should be the vet!

  1. Spend Time With Daisy!

Dogs are social creatures and need companionship just as much as you do. You need to spend time indoors with your dog, and you don’t necessarily have to do anything elaborate. 

Dog toys and having an outdoor space for your pet to play in are not bad ideas, but they cannot replace your presence. 

Try to avoid leaving her alone for extended periods and occasionally come up with fun games and adventures that you can go on together. 

  1. Physical Exercise 

You definitely want Max to stay in prime health, so, you would need to get Max exercising. Physical exercise is essential for the physical fitness of your pet and it is your responsibility to ensure that he gets adequate exercise. 

The regular daily walk alongside some carving up a time to play with your canine companion does the magic. Not sure how much exercise Max needs? Speak with the vet!

  1. Grooming 

This can be done by you or you can fix regular vet visits. It typically involves a proper, thorough bath, clipping of toenails and cleaning the paws, trimming the coat, and brushing it down so that it glows. Some nice fragrance and you’ve got the cleanest pet in the world!
