4. Spaying and Neutering.
If you do not plan to breed your own dogs, it’s recommended you consider spaying or neutering your puppy as soon as it is ready. It’s not possible to watch over your dog 24/7; so as a responsible pet owner, try to do something about the continually growing population of dogs. Your vet will be able to advise you on your options.
5. His Status Quo.
This simply means that you should get to know your puppy’s usual disposition. This is very important because only if you know him, you’ll be able to spot if something’s wrong very early – and the earlier you tackle a health problem, the more chance you have of curing it and saving yourself and your loved pooch grief.
6. His Safety.
We all love to think nothing will ever go wrong – and I sure hope it never does with you and your pup. But reality sometimes hits us unexpectedly – so that’s why I always advise my friends to take up even the most basic of pet insurances for their dog. Make sure it covers the things you feel you won’t be able to afford in an emergency, the rest you can pay for as and when you need to – this way insurance doesn’t have to be expensive.
Remember, a healthy dog makes a happy dog. If you follow these dog care practices, your dog would enjoy a longer and more stress-free life.
