Common Mistakes Made by New Dog Owners

19th September, 2015
Of course, we all know that having a dog can be one of life’s truly great experiences. However, in order to ensure the relationship between you and your four-legged friend is all that it can be, there are some errors you should avoid. The following are some of the most common mistakes made by new dog owners: Rushing into It! Like any relationship, things usually turn our better when it is begun carefully and thoughtfully.  Problems can quickly arise when both parties are not ready.  Unfortunately, many new pet owners mistakenly trust love at first sight.  Just because that pup is the best-looking dog ever doesn’t mean that he’s a good match for you. In order to make the best choice possible, pet owners need to educate themselves.  Dog breeds are very different. Each has its own personality and needs. For example, if you’re looking for a dog to simply let run around the yard with little grooming, you probably want to steer clear of an Afghan hound. Really obsessed with your flowers? A Terrier might not be for you since the breed tends to dig. Of course, not every dog is going to behave strictly according to his breed. So in addition to learning about the dog’s breed, perspective pet owners should speak to others familiar with the dog. Knowing a little about the dog’s personality and any past incidents will go a long way in preparing for ownership.

Before bringing a dog home, it’s crucial that pet owners prepare the place. Put on your dog eyes and move slowly through every room looking for anything which might tempt your pet. Pay attention to things like small game pieces, wires, shoes, socks, potted plants, and anything else that could looks like it might be fun to chew on. These objects pose a real threat to furry friends. You might feel silly, but get down on all fours and think like a dog for a few moments. Your efforts now could very well save your dog from choking later. Never Too Early to Train Many new puppy owners mistakenly take the approach that they want to let their puppy just be a puppy, training can wait until later. Unfortunately, this attitude often results in unhappy owners and dogs. The truth is dogs enjoy being trained, and they are never too young to start learning basics like sit, wait, and speak. At eight weeks old when puppies are typically housed, they are completely capable of being trained. Give you and your dog the best chance at a long, happy life together by training as soon as possible. Common Mistakes Made by New Dog Owners обновлено: January 25, 2017 автором: Craig Davis

I used this product for my Boston last summer. Worked awesome. In 2 days, I've seen a improvement. Within 4 days, the infection was gone. My pit bull started having an issue with his right ear. It was bad. It was so infected. I used EcoEars twice a day and again it worked like magic!! 4 days have passed and you can't even tell he had an ear issue!! I will never use anything else. This stuff is fantastic!! Thank you Vet Organics for such an amazing product!!
Tina Neupauer
