What You Can Expect When You Own a Dog

You may be a pet lover and you really want to own your first pet ever so you go to a shop and get a dog for yourself. Dogs are really good pets to have because they are really loyal and they are also very, very lovable and once you create a special bond with them, it can not be broken. Dogs can really give you so much joy and excitement in your life so if you are someone who is really lonely, you can really find joy in getting a dog. You may have heard the saying that dogs are a man’s best friends and this statement could not be more true because dogs can really stick closer to their masters than to other dogs. You may just got a dog and you still do not know how to take care of it; if you have a new dog, there are certain things that you should be watchful for and we are going to look at some of these things here.

The first thing that we will have you know about new puppies at the house is that they will really want to chew everything you have in your house. The reason why these puppies chew on a lot of things is because their teeth are still growing out and this can hurt so they will really want to chew on something to lessen the pain in their teeth. The best thing for you to do is to buy your puppy some chew toys that they can play with and that they can chew so that they will stay away from chewing any thing important in your house. If you have new furniture, you may want to keep it away for the meantime while your puppy is grown so that they will not chew on it. Another reason why puppies will chew on things is because they are bored and they want to have something to play with.

Puppies, like babies will poop anytime and anywhere so you should be careful of this as well. Puppies trained at a young age, will really remember that they are not allowed to poop or pee in the house and when they do want to go, they will make you know it so that you can take them out of the house and they can do their business there. It is said that old dogs learn a lot slower but this does not mean that they do not learn at all because they still do. Puppies can not hold their poop in for too long so you always have to make sure to take them out every once in a while. You should assign a place for them to poop in your house or you can take them out for walks every few hours.
