1. Keep Training:
Owners often think that once a dog is trained, there is no need to carry on. Your dog never stops learning. Training should be reinforced throughout you dog’s life.
2. Exercise Your Dog:
All dogs need exercise. The more exercise they get, the happier and better they feel.
3. Be a Confident Leader:
To feel secure, all dogs need a calm, confident leader. It isn’t about dominating your dog or making him submissive towards you. Build his confidence by encouraging and rewarding good behavior.
4. Improve Your Dog’s Diet:
You are what you eat, and the same is true for your dog. Problems can occur with a poor diet. Make sure your dog has a good diet.
5. Dog Care:
Don’t forget your dog’s yearly checkup with your veterinarian. Also check into having your dog microchipped for identification in case of loss.
6. Keep Playing:
Play is a great stress reliever for both you and your dog.
7. Have Fun:
Enjoy your dog! If you take the time to train him right, you will give him what he needs to live a successful, happy life in our humane world.
