Dogs are great pets to own. They’re loyal, loving, fun and rewarding. They give so much back to their owners it’s only right that they look after them properly. It can be hard work at times being a dog owner, but that faithful friend will always be full of love. Even when they’ve been naughty, it’s hard to stay mad at them for long. They’re just so cute and adorable.
First up a dog is going to need its own bed. Somewhere warm, safe and secure where it can settle down each night. Owners need to invest in a collar and lead too. It’s important to keep them under control when crossing the road and in certain parks where they shouldn’t be running free off their lead. They’re playful creatures so they need toys too. Some dogs love to chase and bring back a ball. Others love to play fight and chew on rubber toys.
They’re active animals, so daily exercise is essential. If people aren’t prepared to walk them then it’s not fair to own them in the first place. Bigger dogs need to go miles each day. Then there’s diet to consider. When it comes to pet food there’s no one size fits all approach. There are so many different breeds, from the tiny like the Yorkshire Terrier, through to the enormous. Think Great Dane or Wolfhound. Getting their nutrition right is about adapting to the needs of each individual animal. Get this part of their welfare right and everything else just seems to slot into place.
