Things To Know Before Bringing Your Dog Home
Every time a friendly dog comes up to us, waving his tail and asking for attention, the first impulse is to stroke him in return, offer a cookie or take one home for himself. Most often it is the children in the family who demand a pet.
As a dog owner, I know that life becomes unhappy without going into my first thing in the morning and taking home after a whole day’s work in a way that no one can afford. As time passes, the dog’s presence at home becomes so strong that it is impossible to imagine the full picture of a family without this warm and wonderful four-legged creature.
Bringing a pet, especially a dog is an act that is both impulsive and responsible. It is impulsive because if you really don’t love animals, you won’t think about having an animal at all. It is responsible because when you give way to your impulses, you take on a lifelong commitment to your pet.
Like a member of your own family, you are never expected to neglect, desertification, starvation or abandonment. You are responsible for his or her nutrition, cleanliness and hygiene, health and emotional health from day one. You never think that a dog has highly developed senses like a human being. The fact is that the dog is a very sensitive animal, and the slightest tension in the air will have him to defend himself.
They are very attached to the family and treat as their own herd (dogs were initially wild in the herd before man decided to domesticate them). Hence, if a family member is abused by another family member, either physically or orally, the dog will immediately raise the vibrations in the house and either attack the violent person, or calm down quietly in the corner, and may even not take meals if he is seriously depressed.
It is important for a healthy dog that family members have a certain degree of harmony among themselves. If the dog is not healthy, the dog usually would not be eating or drinking.
In the puppy phase, a young dog is just as helpless as a young man – a toddler. They are unskilled in every respect and can urinate throughout the house. At the teething stage, they are rude and intended to chew most of the valued shoes, curtains, furniture (table and chair legs are the favorite), and even important letters and documents, if they direct their attention in this direction.
In such cases, you have to be patient and refrain from working. Dogs need training. Train him to make him the ideal pet. Take him out many times for toilet activities to understand that he should not use the house as a place where he can relieve himself.
When your dog throws himself on his favorite carpet or moor and passes the stools in unexpected places, you will need to be proactive when it comes to cleaning up the clutter. Home workout for a pet is not a one-day affair, and the whole family must certainly take part in it.
Exercises are essential for your pet’s well-being. Walk your pet at least 2-3 times a day, for at least half an hour a day, if you can’t afford more than you can. Without exercise and play, your dog’s health will deteriorate quickly. In fact, without a daily dose of long walks, your dog can’t have a healthy excretory system, and he will be ill and aged before his time if he is deprived.
Veterinary travel on an ongoing basis must be established, for your dog will need shots from time to time, in addition to being checked for fleas, ticks, fungal growth or other health problems. Be prepared to postpone your budget for a monthly or two-month visit to a veterinary clinic.
Dogs are very time sensitive. They require meals as regularly as they require exercise. Your dog should not be vomitting blood. Your dog uses his sleeping routine all day long and can sleep up to 12-18 hours a day.
If you feed him well but don’t exercise him, he gains weight and suffers in old age because of this. It is important to observe his eating habits. If he is not enthusiastic about his meal for a while, check it with your vet. There may be some infections or discomfort that can cause you to lose your appetite.
Like children, dogs can sometimes become rude (especially during the teething period, when they chew anything in sight) and can chew valuable items: a precious flower, an important paper document, wires, shoes and slippers, and even suitcases!
Do not punish your dog through physical with him: he will land with a nasty tempered, and undisciplined dog. Instead, punish him by raising his voice or threatening him with a rolled-up newspaper, making a loud thwacking sound on the floor or wall. This act should send the dog a sufficient signal that his actions are not liked.
