The Golden Rules Of Dog Ownership

 Contributed/Collaborated Post:

For any new dog owner, there is a huge amount of information to absorb. Sometimes, the volume of information available regarding all aspects of owning a dog can border on the overwhelming - especially for an owner who just wants to know how to care for their dog as well as possible. Due to this, we thought it might be beneficial to go back to basics and look at four golden rules of dog ownership…

Rule #1: Choose the Right Food

It is entirely possible that a dog could flourish on a brand of dog food chosen at random in the pet store but, realistically, a little more research will usually produce favorable results. By considering factors such as your dog’s specific health needs and the latest information on nutrition, you should be able to find a healthy dog food that meets your dog’s every need perfectly and allows them to ensure the best possible quality of life.

Rule #2: Garden Barriers are Incredibly Important

In addition to regular walks, most dog owners will allow their pooch to enjoy a little extra exercise by spending time in their garden - a great choice, but one that can lead to potentially problematic issues. Most dogs are curious about the outside world, and given the opportunity, will be keen to explore it. Unfortunately, dogs - unlike cats - are not particularly territorial creatures, so if they do take the opportunity to roam, there’s no guarantee that they will be able to find their way home. It’s therefore important to ensure your garden is completely dog-escape-proof, with measures such as invisible fences and double gates particularly useful in this regard.

Rule #3: Focus on Positive Reinforcement when Training

There will always be different opinions on how dogs should be trained, but there is one central idea that seems to be espoused by experts and dog owners alike: the importance of positive reinforcement. Dogs are far more likely to learn when good behavior is encouraged and rewarded than they are from so-called “negative” training, so keeping things positive and diverting their attention from unwelcome behaviors always seems to produce the best results.

Rule #4: Combine Online Forums with your Vet's Expertise

There are countless online forums where dog owners can share tips and information about caring for their dogs, and there is no denying that these can be incredibly valuable. However, these forums are always best approached with a hint of caution; the information provided is worth considering, but it’s always worth discussing any ideas you see or suggestions you receive with your vet. Used with this caution in place, forums can really help dog owners to share stories and tips, while still ensuring that your vet can consider all fundamental health necessities.

In Conclusion

Some of the more intricate ins and outs of how dogs should be cared for will always be debated, especially amongst those who have strong opinions in a particular direction. However, owning a dog is - at heart - a blissfully simple endeavor, and if you have the above in place, then you should be able to ensure your four-legged friend is living their very best life.

Dogs Dogs and more Dogs! @babyaspen

Dogs Dogs and more Dogs. Yes, Ruckus and Mooncake are now sporting all things canine. Man's best friend and Baby's best friend.

We are absolutely canine lovers and Baby Aspen surely follows our vibe! As first time parents, there was definitely some anxiety introducing Mooncake to Ruckus initially. We were so lucky that the two fell in love with each other at first glance. You can follow our adventures on Instagram to see more of their connection.

For now, take a look at how spoiled my 2 babies are:

Thanks Baby Aspen for showing us some love. Super cute and must haves for any nursery.

Help Your Dog To Socialize In A Big Town

Contributed/Collaborated Post:

Having a dog when you live in an urban environment can be challenging. Some breeds need a lot of space to play and run as part of their regular health routine. It’s fair to say that your apartment overlooking the harbor may not be offering remote enough options to keep your beloved pet entertained. More importantly, dogs are social creatures. They actively research the company of people and animals to maintain their happiness. Additionally, a dog that grows isolated from the contact of others can become increasingly nervous and asocial. But what can you do to help when you can’t afford to quit your job and move to the countryside to play with your pet?

Take your dog out

Don’t keep your dog at home when you go to work 

More and more big cities have developed services entirely dedicated to our pets. In fact, you can find that a lot of employers are embracing the idea of bringing dogs to the office, as their presence can be both soothing and motivating for the team.  Amazon is one of the companies that welcome dogs at work, as they count over 6,000 dogs in their facilities every day. If you’re worried about separation anxiety, taking your dog with you is the best thing you can do. Unfortunately, not all businesses are dog-friendly. When the option isn’t available, you should look for a reliable doggy daycare service next to your workplace. At the daycare, your dog can play with other dogs while you’ve got someone looking after your pet all the time.

Book care appointments for your dog

Getting your dog used to other people is an essential step if you want to be able to take your dog with you in shops, restaurants and on holiday. You can start by introducing new people into your dog’s routine, such as booking regular appointments at the groomer’s. Not only will this encourage your dog to stay calm and obedient, even when you’re not around, but it’s also a great way of keeping its fur fresh and clean!

Make friends with other dog owners

The chances are that you’re not the only dog owner in your neighborhood. Having a dog is often the best way for adults to make friends in town. You can plan dog walks together around the park in the evening. If your dogs get on together, why not move to the next step and throw a big dog party?  Think of a dog party as a giant entertaining for a handful of dogs. Summer is the best time for it as you can bring an inflatable pool for them to cool down.

Plan a getaway weekend

Lastly, when your dog is familiar with commuting and meeting other people and animals, you can safely plan a weekend away in a dog-friendly location.

Indeed, traveling with your dog can be a ton of fun. Not only do dogs keep your active – so that you’re less likely to spend the weekend in front of the TV – but they are a brilliant ice-breaker when you are in a new town.

The question is not whether you can help your dog to socialize, but why you haven’t started already. Indeed, social dogs are more obedient, patient, and street-smart than other dogs. Besides, making friends keeps your dog happy!
