If you’re lazy and can’t be bothered leaving the house, having a dog will literally drag your butt from your couch to the nearest park. Man’s best friend needs exercise, even more than you do, and having to care for a dog will at least get you walking every day.

Now for the important dog safety tips -always make sure to keep any prescription medications away from your dog. The same holds true for over-the-counter meds. Consuming even a single pill can cause serious health problems or your dog. You should contact your vet right away if your dog swallows some medication.
Don’t get sub-par food for your dog that’s from a bargain store. Less expensive brands of dog food often contain artificial coloring, additives, preservatives and so on that can be very bad for your dog. Use a consumer awareness or animal advocacy group to obtain a list of the best foods that come with the highest recommendations by professionals. Your dog will benefit greatly from better food.
If you get a dog that was in a pound or shelter, you must see a vet right away. Shelter dogs could be sick or exposed to different viruses. Therefore, you should have the animal looked at prior to taking it to your house.
Take the time to train your dog on a leash. He should know the “heel” command, stay close to you and not veer far ahead or drag behind. This ensures his safety and will make going for walks more enjoyable for you. Not having to hold the leash tightly will make going for walks easier.
