Caring For Your Dog

Of course, Caring for a dog is a lot of work, but you can do it! First, you’ll need to be sure your new buddy has a place to get water whenever he needs it so he doesn’t get dehydrated, or too thirsty. Your dog will need to eat twice a day- you definitely need to read the back of your dog’s food to figure out how much he should eat based on his weight. If you feed him too much, he will become overweight! Lastly, you need to be sure you walk your dog for 30 minutes twice a day or else they will get too hyper and destroy your house!

Training Your Dog

Often times, people have trouble training their dog themselves. It can be difficult to understand how a dog’s mind works! I recommend hiring a professional trainer near you to come to your home and train your dog one on one. Be sure to do your homework, and make sure the trainer has a good reputation and will work well with your loyal companion.
