Walking a dog is a fun thing to do and it seems like an activity that anyone that can hold a leash can do without having to take lessons in dog walking. However, as strange as they may sound, there are some mistakes people make when walking their dogs. They are mistakes that anybody can make regardless of their age, size, height, and location.

Here are six common dog walking mistakes you are making and how to avoid them:

Disregarding Safety Hazards

When you walk your dog, it is very important to be mindful of anything that could harm you and anything that could harm your dog. Some of the things that can be dangerous to you and your dog as you go for a walk are cars passing, broken bottles, wet or slippery floors, sharp or pointed objects, spilled chemicals, water bodies, and electrical connections. To avoid any form of harm, be mindful of everything around you and your dog; move your dog away from anything that could harm it; and put booties on their paws.

Using The Wrong Leash

One of the reasons why people like to use a retractable leash or a long leash while walking their dogs is to give their dogs a lot of freedom to walk around them and to make sure they do not bump into their dogs. This seem like a good idea, but it is not advisable. The reason is that it is difficult to control a dog using a retractable or long leash. When you do not have a good control of your dog while walking them, they can run off when they see an animal they would like to chase and run into danger.

Approaching Unknown Dogs

Some dogs can get hostile with each other, especially when they are meeting each other for the first time. Also, some dogs can attack you if they do not know you. Therefore, it is advisable to be wary of unknown dogs when you approach them without your dog and when you approach them with your dog. Ensure the situation is safe before you let yourself or your dog get close to another dog.

Stopping For Stubborn Dogs

Some dogs, especially smaller dogs are generally more stubborn than bigger dogs when you take them for a walk. Stubborn dogs move haphazardly and frequently stop while you walk them, making it difficult for you to control them and difficult for you to enjoy walking your pet. Instead of stopping intermittently, take a handful of kibble with you and use it to motivate them to continue walking.

Ignoring Pet Behavior

It is never a good idea to ignore any changes in the behavior of your pet. Changes in the behavior of dogs could be a warning sign that they are sick, injured, or around danger.

Not Rewarding Your Dog

Rewarding your dog with treats during and after a walk will make your dog look forward to the next time you both will go out for a walk.

Are you thinking about bringing man’s best friend into your home to be a member of your family? I am sure your answer is Yes because you would not be reading this article if it isn’t.

Dogs are lovely and loyal animals that keep us entertained, keep our company and to some extent, keep us safe; therefore, deciding to get a dog ushers in a lot of excitement and eagerness.

However if you are thinking about getting your first dog, you have to be prepared by knowing the things you need to do to make your dog comfortable in your home and to quickly kick-start friendship with your dog. Most importantly, when you bring a dog home, it means you have added a new member to your family, which is a big commitment.

Here are 5 points to remember if you are thinking about getting a dog:

1. Make sure you are financially ready.

Dogs require a lot of care, therefore, you have to get some things ready before you bring a dog into your home and continue to buy or pay for some other things for as long as you have a dog in your home. Some of them are dog toys, dog collars, dog coat, bedding, house, dog leash, tag, booties, treats, high-quality dog-food, grooming, etc. Also, when you bring a dog into your home, you must be ready to spend on regular and emergency visits to the veterinarian.

2. Dogs need to be groomed.

Just like other members of your family, your dog must be groomed. You must be ready to brush your dog’s teeth and hair, trim his nails occasionally and bathe him at least once a month.

3. Keep an eye on what your dog eats.

High-quality dog feed and treat are your best bet if you want to give your dog the food that is harmless and that supplies him the right nutrition. Many foods that humans eat are not good for dogs and can be fatal if they eat them. Some of the foods your dog should not eat are chocolate, avocados, coffee, alcohol, macadamia nuts, onions, apple seeds, grapes, raisins, walnut, yeast dough, and garlic.

4. Dogs need exercise!

Dogs are active animals and you need to keep them active. Therefore, if you are thinking about getting a dog, you must be ready to create time every day to engage them in some fun activities. Some fun activities you can do with your dog daily are hide-and-seek, tug of war, playing fetch, jogging or running with your dog, and going for a walk.

5. Training your dog is important

It is important to train your dog as soon as possible. If you want your dog to behave the way you want, you must train him. Training a dog requires a lot of patience and repetitions. Carry a Dog Walker Bag every time you go outdoors for training your Dog. It is important to train your dog as soon as possible. If you want your dog to behave the way you want, you must train him.

October 31 is around the corner and excitement will be in the air, but just like human beings, some pets seem to fall into the two possible camps when it comes to celebrating Halloween. While some like to be out as a Trick or Treater, others prefer to stay at home and help in passing out candies. Your dog’s tolerance for surprises, costumes, and noise determine how you celebrate Halloween with him or her. And as dog parents who see the pet as a full-fledged member of the family, what plans do you have for them in this exciting period?

7 Fun Ways for Halloween celebration with Your Pet

1. Dress them up

There is no better way to make your dog have the feeling of the buzz than having them dressed up in pet Halloween costumes available in some designer dog couture like https://sassydogfashions.com/. If your dog does not fancy it, don’t push them but most dogs show some excitement when dressed up for the day and can even give him/her the needed warmth. There are so many funny costumes nowadays with various sizes for dogs of all sizes and available in pet stores.

2. Participating in local activities

Look for some local activities on newspapers or social media within the community which your dog can be a part of. Be sure such fun will make your dog really happy.

3. Get help handing out candies

Although some dogs might not really like this but some prefer to stay by the door and help out in handling candies to trick-or-treaters. While doing this, your dog should be positioned in such a way that it has the right temperature and make sure it has a collar with the emergency contact in case it wiggles out.

4. Go to a pumpkin patch

Some orchards within the community allow dogs, in as much as they are on a leash or well-behaved. It will be such a fun way to include your dog in pumpkin patch festivities and enjoy a time out together. From your local listings, you can get to know where to have this dog fun in your area.

5. Host a pup-friendly party

In a situation where you are having few family members or friends coming around for Halloween, you can as well invite their dogs. By so doing and under the watchful eyes of the parents, these dogs can play together with your dog and keep each other entertained. Therefore, nobody is left out.

6. Play in the leaves

When the Halloween is approaching, you see falling leaves everywhere because the season has just changed. And in case you have trees close to your house, God help you, as you need time and energy to get rid of these leaves. But it is always a fun having your dog around to play with them in the piles of the leaves. This can be a sort of morale booster with the joy on their faces.

7. Participate in a pet parade or a dog costume contest

Some communities now organize dog costume contest as well pet parades. It looks really exciting seeing your well-dressed dog walking in a parade, along with other dogs. And for the dog costume contest, dogs with the best costume stand the chance of going home with various prizes. It is really a fun having such a timeout but the starting point is where to get these embroidered dog clothes that best fit your dogs? It is no other place than https://sassydogfashions.com/.
