Dogs Can't Do These 10 Things So They Need You To Help Them

There are many things that dogs can’t do by themselves. As dog parents, it’s our responsibility to help them with these tasks for their own good.

Here are 10 things you need to do for your canine companion.

1. Maintain Dental Hygiene

Bad dental health can lead to periodontal disease, awful breath, tooth decay, and even severe organ damage!

2. Enforce Boundaries

To prevent your dog from getting lost, make sure they are microchipped, keep the yard well-fenced, and walk them on a leash.

3. Keep Them Slim

Just a little extra weight can be awful for your dog’s health, especially as they get older.

4. Clean Their Ears

Ear problems are the leading cause of vet visits.

5. Go For Regular Vet Visits

Your dog should see a vet semi-annually for regular health checkups. They could save his life.

6. Socialize Them

Make sure your dog can be well-behaved around other animals and people.

7. Keep Toxins Away

A curious dog can ingest all sorts of chemicals and foods that are dangerous to them. Keep them out of reach.

8. Mind The Weather

If it’s too hot, cold, stormy, or just bad weather in general, take your dog inside.

9. Maintain Grooming and Bathing Habits

A dog’s skin and fur need to be cleaned and groomed regularly to keep them healthy, and it gives you a chance to spot any problems.

10. Get Senior Care Ready

Dogs age fast. Make sure you’re ready to make them comfortable as they go gray!
