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. If you do not own a dog yet, it may be time for you to get your very own dog because you know that a dog will really make you happy and cheerful in days when you are down low. 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. There are many things that you have to be aware of when you just get a dog for the first time and if you want to know what these things are, you should just keep on reading because we are going to explain them to you so if you are interested and if you really want to learn, stay tuned.

One thing that you should be aware about when you just get a new puppy is that they can chew everything. 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. If you do not give your puppy any good toys to chew at, they will chew anything from shoes to couches to chairs. You should always be aware of this so you should keep your furniture away from a new puppy that you just got. Another reason why puppies will chew on things is because they are bored and they want to have something to play with.

When it comes to having a new puppy in your house, another thing that you should be aware of is that they are going to poop and pee a lot. It is really an important thing to potty train them when they are young so that they will learn faster. 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. If your dogs have fleas, you should really get flea medicine for your dogs because this can help.
