Just like any other pet, dogs require the loving care of their owners. Dogs demand your daily attention in the form of time, energy and money.
Always pay attention to the basic needs of the dog
Housetrain your dog and train him to behave obediently. Dogs want training and education. Untrained, unbalanced dogs are often frustrated and in this way provoke a lot of unnecessary trouble. Exercise your dog as often and as much as possible. An untrained dog is a burden to yourself, to you, and to other people.
Being around other people and other dogs is important. Don’t leave your dog alone for too long. This can damage the dog’s mental balance. After four to five hours of solitude, the dog’s behavior becomes destructive. Dogs want company.
Brush your dog every day. Grooming is important, especially when it comes to dogs of a long-haired breed.
Take care of dental health. Your dog’s teeth also need regular brushing to prevent tartar and bad breath.
Walk your dog regularly and, above all, sufficiently.
Feed your dog good food. Make sure your four-legged friend gets a balanced diet. Good food is to the dog what the daily apple is to man – it keeps the doctor away. So when choosing food, be sure to buy quality.
Make sure your dog always has a bowl of fresh, clean water available.
Your dog needs space. Provide your dog with a sufficiently large area for daily exercise and daily play.
The dog bed must be warm and clean. Change the insoles weekly or as needed.
You should also look for a good veterinarian before an illness or injury occurs. In an “emergency” you know immediately who to turn to.
