Guide to Dog Care Tips and Products
You adore your dog so much that there is nothing you would not do for his own good. However, that does not mean your life should be harder just because you are willing to go the extra mile for your pooch. This article serves as a guide to dog care tips and products that can make your life a little easier. Depending on the situation, you will learn how best to take care of your canine companion. These tips, tricks and hacks can simplify how you look after your pet and make your relationship run more smoothly.
When going outside
Always have nearby a small tote bag packed with baby wipes for cleaning paws and poop pickup bags. Keep some booties in the bag as well in case it suddenly rains or snows. Have a separate bag hanging by the door that contains additional leashes, harnesses and other dog products that are important when walking your dog. The actual leash you will use can be kept on a leash holder by the side of the door. You may also store some towels nearby for drying your pet during the rainy season and for cleaning off very muddy paws.
Learning The Secrets About Pets
When it’s feeding time
A Beginners Guide To Dogs
Create a spot in your kitchen for feeding. Reserve a particular shelf or drawer for storing things needed for preparing your mutt’s meals or for dispensing medications such as pet food and medicines, water bowls, measuring cups, pill cutters and needle-less syringes. A drooling dog or a messy eater will require additional baby wipes or hand towels for cleanup after meals. Keep the dog food as close as possible to the feeding station but out of your pet’s reach. Schedule in your calendar the dates for giving parasite preventives and for ordering dry or canned food from an online retailer or a pet food delivery company. That way, you will know when to buy more food or medicines and never run low on supplies.
When it is time for cleaning and grooming
Just like the feeding station, there should be a designated bathing and grooming area. It can be in your laundry room or garage where you keep all the dog shampoos, conditioners, combs, ear cleaners, and other cleansing and brushing paraphernalia. You can organize the things in a basket with dividers and hang it by the door. Another vital part of dog care is nail trimming and dog nail clippers can do the trick.
When it’s playtime
It is good for your dog’s health to get plenty of exercise. If you cannot play with your pet as much as you want because of the demands of home and work, a dog playpen might be helpful.
