Caring For Dogs

Any dog you may purchase will require a certain amount of care, including veterinary care if they become ill. Many insurance companies cater for dogs, and this is an avenue worth investigating to ensure your pet remains healthy. It is important to ensure you have all the right equipment and information to look after your dog.

Safety

Your home and garden can be as much if not more of a danger to your dog as when you take the dog out. Ensuring there is nowhere your dog can escape, that there are no poisonous plants or poisons (e.g. slug pellets, weed killers) around the garden and ensuring doors are firmly closed are just some of the ways to keep your dog safe at home. When taking your dog out walking or in the car, there are just as many dangers for your new pet. It is important to remember to keep your dog on a lead, use a car harness in case of accidents, and never let your dog stick its head out of a window when in motion and never leaving your dog in a locked, hot car.

Grooming

Grooming is an important part of dog care, which may need to be carried out monthly, weekly, or with some breeds even daily to discourage matting and shedding of hair. If you do not want to groom your own dog, pet groomers can be found all around the country.

Feeding
