The age and size of your dog will determine how much you should feed them. Puppies need much care than older dogs. At age one, it is recommended to start feeding your dog one meal daily, unless your veterinarian recommends a different diet, should your dog have a medical condition. Dogs less than a year old should be fed 3-4 meals daily. Feed your dog the best quality dry food in order to give your dog the right nutritional balance they need. The dry food can in turn be mixed with water and canned food to add moisture to their diet. Try not to give your dog human food, for it may cause your dog to become very sick, though certain human food in small amounts may be okay and even beneficial to your dog’s health. For instance, fried eggs, cottage cheese and certain fruits and vegetables will promote a healthy lifestyle for your dog. Fresh water is always a must to have around for your dog to drink to stay healthy.
Daily exercise is essential for your dog’s well-being. The amount of exercise your dog needs depends on what kind of dog you have, their sex and their age. Exercise promotes good behaviors in dogs that keep them from becoming aggressive.
It is important to make sure your dog is groomed and brushed well daily. Bathing your dog with shampoo and conditioner both meant for humans or dogs good. (Make sure when you are grooming your dog to comb out all the mats that are in the dog’s coat.)
