You don’t think you owe your dog anything, do you? Well, if you don’t then you are dead wrong! Having a dog demands a great deal of duties that you cannot fail to dismiss. The consequences of shelving your duties to your dog can be dire because they eventually tell on you as well as your dog.

Some human beings think that the only thing they have to do after they get a dog is feed and bath it its appalling that they think that way but the fact of the matter is that such folks are ill-informed about what responsibilities they owe their dog. If you just got a new dog, good for you! However, with a dog come great responsibilities like:


Just as the diet of a human being contributes to his mental and physical balance, the diet of a dog can determine the overall health of your dog. You cant feed your dog just anything. You need to feed it exactly what it needs to develop properly. There are several pet stores where you can ask after the best type of dog food for your dog. In addition to, you need to know that dog food is quite exorbitant. If you aren’t financially ready for a dog, don’t even think about getting one because you’ll simply be setting yourself up for a heavy fall.


Your dog needs to be healthy to give you its best. You have to take your dog to the vet doctor for vaccinations against various illnesses that they are prone to. Without vaccinations, your dogs immune system will constantly weaken and may eventually shut down causing its death. You owe your dog regular check ups to the vet.


Your dog deserves to be in a clean healthy place. Whether your dog is staying in your house or in a kennel, you need to be sure that it is well sheltered.


Last but certainly not the least, your dog needs to be trained. If you don’t train your dog, you will be doing it more harm than good. You should endeavor to bring out the best of your dog through effective dog training.
