Being a dog owner may be more complicated than you think, and it’s all too easy to make mistakes that can end up harming your dog!
We all want the best for our furry friends, but doing what’s best for them may be more complicated than it sounds. Many dog owners end up making mistakes that can end up hurting their pets, and that’s why, in our Levittown veterinary clinic’s last blog, we went over a couple of the most common mistakes dog owners make so that you can avoid them. Keep reading to learn about more common mistakes made by well-meaning dog owners:
Mistake #3. Adopting a dog just because it’s cute.
A vast majority of dog owners pick out their dogs because of the way that they look. Just because you think a specific breed is cuter than other breeds, it doesn’t mean that it’s the right fit for you. For example, Siberian Huskies are incredibly beautiful, but they need a lot more exercise than many people are willing to give them.
Mistake #4. Being inconsistent with your dog.
Once you’ve set the rules for your dog and trained them, stick with it! Training is something that has to be done continuously, and if you aren’t consistent with your dog, it will only confuse them.
