Whether you have owned a dog before or are embarking on the journey for the first time, dogs have certain needs that should be met. Many pet owners are unaware that their dog’s needs aren’t being satisfied. In this article, we’re going to discuss some tips that can help make raising a healthy dog an easier task.

A dog’s health can sometimes suffer if he is not given the proper amount of exercise. Different breeds of dog require different levels of exercise; therefore it is important that you research how often you should exercise your dog. Making sure your dog remains in fit condition doesn’t have to be a chore. You can take your dog for a nice walk in the morning or evening, or you could sit in a chair and toss around your dog’s favorite toy or ball. This is a great way for your dog to get plenty of exercise while you don’t wear yourself out. Your dog should get regular amounts of exercise every day, so be sure to set aside a little time to help your dog get rid of that excess energy.

Your dog’s emotional needs are also not to be forgotten. You can probably think of a few dogs you know (possibly even your own!) who are either very spoiled or simply unsociable. Making sure your dog has plenty of interaction with other dogs and humans will help him to understand how to behave around others properly. This not only will help to make your dog well-rounded, but he will likely be a much happier dog.

How and what you feed your dog has a big effect on your pet’s health and over-all behavior. There are so many commercially available dog foods to choose from that making the right decision can be somewhat impossible. For a change, look beyond the labels and advertisements and look into what exactly your dog food contains. The five main items that need to be in your dog’s food are: protein, carbs, polyunsaturated and saturated fats, and vitamins and minerals. If the dog food label doesn’t list a source for these (ie: source of protein should be listed as beef, chicken, lamb, etc.), then the source probably isn’t very healthy.

Raising a dog shouldn’t be taken for granted. Your dog’s life is still that: a life. The health and happiness of your pooch directly depends upon how you raise him. We encourage you to apply these tips to your lifestyle and help your dog live the fullest and healthiest life possible.
