Things to be Cautious About When You Own a Dog

You may be a pet lover and you really want to own your first pet ever so you go to a shop and get a dog for yourself. If you look at each home around the world, you may find that more homes have dogs and other kinds of pets than those that do not have any pets or any kind of animal. Dogs can really give you so much joy and excitement in your life so if you are someone who is really lonely, you can really find joy in getting a dog. You may have heard the saying that dogs are a man’s best friends and this statement could not be more true because dogs can really stick closer to their masters than to other dogs. However, if you get a dog and it is new to your place, you can expect a few things to happen in your house and we are going to look at some of these things here in this article today.

One thing that you should be aware about when you just get a new puppy is that they can chew everything. Yes, puppies are still growing up and their teeth are going to hurt because they are growing out so you need to provide them with good toys. If you do not want your puppy to chew on things in the house, you should really get them a lot of toys to chew on so that they will be distracted. If you have new furniture, you may want to keep it away for the meantime while your puppy is grown so that they will not chew on it. Another reason why puppies will chew on things is because they are bored and they want to have something to play with.

When it comes to having a new puppy in your house, another thing that you should be aware of is that they are going to poop and pee a lot. Puppies trained at a young age, will really remember that they are not allowed to poop or pee in the house and when they do want to go, they will make you know it so that you can take them out of the house and they can do their business there. It is said that old dogs learn a lot slower but this does not mean that they do not learn at all because they still do. Puppies can not hold their poop in for too long so you always have to make sure to take them out every once in a while. You should assign a place for them to poop in your house or you can take them out for walks every few hours.
