Choosing the Highest Quality Dog Food
Feeding a dog takes attention to detail. A puppy’s digestive tract is far more delicate than an older dog’s. The type of dog food should suit the dog’s particular age and provide healthful nutrients for growth, strong bones and muscles.

Regular Bathing and Grooming
Nothing makes a dog feel as good as a regular bath and grooming. Bathing and grooming can be done at home or by a professional pet groomer. If you choose to bathe and groom your pet at home, invest in dog shampoos that don’t have harsh chemicals. Purchase a nail clipper according to your pet’s size. There are also hair de-shedders and electric and cordless fur trimmers.
Check Canine Teeth for Problems
Canine teeth should be checked regularly from early puppy teething stages. Very often, puppy teeth develop problems that go unnoticed until they are older. Start checking canine teeth early to insure proper growth. Generally, dogs that eat the best foods develop fewer problems with their teeth. Some signs of dental problems in dogs include
excessive drooling, bad breath, loose teeth, gum inflammation, cysts beneath the tongue and tumors in gums.
Provide Protection from Fleas and Ticks
Most dog shampoos provide protection from fleas and ticks. Also available are collars and convenient applicators that provide full insect protection from infestation.
Plan a Regular Program of Exercise
Dogs need plenty of exercise. Moderate the type of exercise according to the dog’s age and also the climate.
Spend time Relaxing and Bonding
Dogs feel most loved when their owners spend time just relaxing and bonding with them. This can be done indoors or outdoors.
