7 Things to Avoid Doing to Your Dog

Flip it!

Committed dog owners often have to learn how to gauge their pet’s behavior through trial and error. From puppies to rescues, there are some things that are written and unwritten about the do’s and don’ts of doggie parenting.

Just as it is with kids, we pet parents can send mixed or wrong messages to our furry family members. As smart as dogs are, they’ll figure out for themselves how to interpret what you’re communicating through your actions. They also depend on you to do the right thing for them at all times, like keeping them safe, well-fed, and healthy.

That said, let’s jump through a few good practices to keep in mind as a dog mom or dad. Some are common sense, some are reminders, and others may be new tips to keep in your pocket.

The list below is a list of things you DON’T want to do with your doggie:

Neglect Medical Care

Regular visits to the vet ensure your dog is up to date on shots, is free of major dental problems, and can live longer. An annual visit at the very least is recommended, but if you are experiencing financial challenges, look for low-cost pet clinics in your area.

Also learn to be on the lookout for abnormal behaviors, as they could be indicative of a more serious issue.
