Two of the most important things to a dog’s quality of life may be what food is offered, and the quality of drinking water given. Check with your vet to see which foods are recommended for your breed. Look on line for further information, then decide which food you will buy.

Think about purchasing an automatic waterer for your dog. This will assure you the dog always has water that is clean. These units are easy to clean, and easy to use.

Dogs need exercise, and so do humans. Playing ball with your dog is good for you, too. Try giving 10-15 minutes each day to your dog. If the dog is home alone during the day, think about taking two 10 minute breaks with the dog before retiring for the night.

Dogs are social beings. They enjoy walking through the neighborhood, sniffing scents, barking at other dogs, and investigating new sites. Walk with them daily if you can. If not, consider hiring a teen in your area to do it for you.

Keep your dog well groomed. Not only does a dog need to be brushed, dogs need their ears cleaned, teeth brushed, nails clipped. If these are things you don’t want to do, take your pet to a groomer.

Never ignore your dog’s health issues. If you have any questions about your pet’s behavior or health, make an appointment with your vet. Many vets will help you by phone if you’re a regular at the office. If you don’t have a vet now, you can find one in your area by searching the Internet.

Fleas and ticks don’t need to be a part of your dog’s life-ever. Speak to your vet about products available to help your dog avoid such pests. Remember, your dog can’t take care of these things. Your help will always be needed.
