International dog day: How to take good care of your dog

Dogs are part of our lives; they are members of our families. They offer unconditional love, and they deserve our utmost care.

We must take good care of our best friends and be conscious of their needs.

Deworming and vaccination

Deworming animals is crucial for animal and human health. There are parasitic diseases, which are transmitted from animals to humans. 

The frequency depends on where we live and where we take our dog, so it's very important to consult our veterinarian.

It is also vital that we vaccinate our dogs to prevent spreading diseases among other dogs and humans. Dogs need to be vaccinated every year. You should also consult your veterinarian on this matter.

Limits are necessary to give them security

For a dog, the family is part of its pack, and in a pack, there are hierarchies. If the person doesn’t take the lead, the animal may take that place.

Boundaries are necessary for them to live in a safe environment. A safe dog is a happy dog. However, an environment without limits creates insecurity.

Playing and walking

Lack of play and walking causes most behavioral problems in dogs. Both activities are fundamental for the integral development of our animal and, many times, they are not given the importance they deserve.

The walk strengthens the bond with our dog. Going for a walk is an unusual activity for dogs: they meet other dogs, people,  they get distracted and socialize. If they do not do so, anything that happens unbalances them. They are exacerbated when they greet or are not very obedient. The lack of walking generates a feeling of confinement and boredom, leading to misconduct. Dogs wait for their owners to take them out all day long. So try to stay away from your mobile and give attention to your pet. After all, you have a whole life outside your house, but their entire lives revolve around you. 

Treating the dog like a dog

Treating them with human criteria is not healthy for them. Dogs don't think like us and don't choose based on our criteria. They are simpler. Humanizing them is thinking that they do things out of revenge or on purpose and those attitudes are human, not canine.

However, there are other reasons why dogs make a mess: they may be bored or insecure. They rather we yell at them than being indifferent.
