Safety Tips for Dogs
It is very important to you to take care of your doggy and these safety tips will help you a lot.
*** If you have a puppy that pees on your carpet. After soaking up most of the mess with paper towel, sprinkle a generous amount of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) over the area and leave it to absorb both the traces of urine and the odor.
*****Do not leave your dog unattended on a choke chain. The chain could get caught and strangle the dog.
*****. If your dog runs away from you and you finally catch up to it, no matter how angry you are at the dog, do not yell or smack it or your dog will never come to you when called for fear of being punished
*****Using metal bowls dishes outside in winter may be a risk, because your pet's tongue could stick to the frozen metal. In the summer metal bowls can get very hot, and burn your dog. I RECOMMEND using plastic bowls.
***** When your dog is teething, instead of have him chewing on couches, walls etc. Buy a few (cheap) wash clothes. Soak the wash cloth and put it ion the freezer. When fully frozen give it to the dog to chew, it will thaw out so have another one ready in the freezer. Be careful when doing this with very small dogs, as they may get a chill. I have heard of small dogs getting too cold too quickly when chewing on ice.
***** Do not leave your dog in the car unattended on hot days. Even with the windows open, temperatures in cars WILL reach deadly levels. It only takes 5 minutes!
***** To keep your dog busy, buy toys with little holes in, put both big and small pieces of kibble in the toy and give it to your dog. This will keep him busy for quite awhile presuming he has a few small ones that he gets out quickly. You can also wedge dog biscuits in the holes with a smear of peanut butter.
*****Do You Know That All puppies chew ?
Chewing is normal to them It is what they do naturally.. They chew almost anything that fits in their mouth that doesn't taste bad.They "explore" a new item by putting it in their mouths and taking a good bite into it .
Therefore it is our responsibility to teach our puppies what is appropriate to chew, and what is not and supply them with a variety of chew toys.. He needs chew toys that outlast his teeth (rubber "Kong" toys, some nylabones, hard dog bones, etc.), and others that he can really get his teeth into (stuffed toys, rawhides, real sticks, etc.).
Add some squeaky toys, balls, tug-o-ropes, and whatever else you think your pup will enjoy that won't hurt him.
