Responsibilities and Duties of Getting a Pet Dog

Responsibilities and Duties of Getting a Pet Dog

Dogs are the source of happiness, fun and enjoyment to many people. For others, to have a dog will give them some sort of security because there are dogs that were specifically trained to watch and guide other people. Some adopt a dog because they want someone that they can have for sporting, some as a toy and for some to help them on their chores. Men have so many responsibilities when it comes to taking care of their dogs. These responsibilities include providing them their basic needs, health needs and at the same time their social needs.

The primary thing to think about when buying a dog is the breed. The kind of dog that we will adopt should depend on our intention. For example, if we want a playmate or a dog that we can dress up, the best options are toy poodle, Shih Tzu, Papillon and Maltese. These breeds are friendly and most often are small which are more appropriate for our need. On the other hand if we want a watchdog, we can adopt a German shepherd, a German Pinscher and the American foxhound. After we know the breed, we must also buy their crate, food bowls, bedding and other things that they need.

Health related needs include bringing our dogs to the veterinary clinic. It is a must for us to bring them to their vet to make sure that they are healthy, and there are no problems regarding their health. Sociological needs include bringing them to the park where you and your dog can have time to play and make fun with other dogs. In addition to these needs, there are other people that bring their dogs to a pet shop for nail and hair trimming, massage and a good bath.

Once we know all of the responsibilities that a dog owner should possess, we can say that we are now ready to be a dog owner. Some people hire a dog trainer or enroll their dogs to a dog training service in order to train the dog with proper behavior. The behavior modification programs that most dog training companies do is humane and proven effective. There are many dog training companies today like a Maryland dog trainer who offer training and programs. Others include Annapolis dog training, Columbia dog training, Baltimore training and Maryland dog training services.

Dog training services that offer behavior modification programs is extremely needed today. A dog that can be trained to use their potty is a tremendous help on our part. It does not only save us time but also we save some effort in cleaning the entire house. Most dogs that undergo some behavior modification programs tend to behave well and be much tamed. In addition, they do not bite home furniture and home appliances as well as your children socks and clothes.

The dog that we will buy must cater our need. Since there are so many breeds to choose from, we can have a list of the top most or the most valued dog breeds such as Dalmatian, chow, a pug, Shih Tzu, Great Dane, poodle, pinscher, spitz, Chihuahua, beagle, spaniel, Maltese, Foxhound, terrier, collie, German shepherd, retriever and Havanese. With almost 190 dog breeds that are available today, we must think twice about the breed that we really want to adopt.

In summary, men have so many responsibilities in owning a dog. These needs include the most basic like water, food, clothing and shelter. There are also health-related needs that should be met as well as sociological needs. Enrolling them on a behavior modification program is also a must so that they know how to behave properly whenever we have visitors at home. In this regard, hiring a credible dog trainer is also a must.

Tampa Dog Trainer Offers Free Socialization and Group Training Course

(PRWEB) May 15, 2005

Canine Campers features a free dog training lesson and canine socialization class and meets every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Lake Park just off Dale Mabry in Lutz, Fla. Dog owners must make reservations to attend the free class, which has seen an overwhelming response. Dogs of all ages and breeds may attend the session, where pooches are encouraged to socialize, learn and have fun. Socialization is the key to a happy and secure dog, according to Scott, who recently moved her popular business from New Jersey to Florida. “It goes beyond training for me,” said Scott, 37. “My relationship down the road with the dog never ends.”

The Florida Dog Training School of Tampa’s motto, “We Can Train Any Dog,” certainly rings true for Scott, who is comfortable training even the most aggressive dogs other trainers won’t touch. The backbone of her business, which offers an initial free evaluation, is Basic Obedience, designed to produce a well-trained house dog. Scott will drive directly to a dog owner’s home and work with family members to develop a customized dog training plan. “Every dog is different and I customize lessons based on a client’s needs,” she said. “I’m not stuck on using one certain method.”

Scott has an inspiring story to tell. After being laid off from her desk job back in New Jersey, she took a risk and attended dog training classes at the Academy of Canine Education in New York under the tutelage of Master Dog Trainer Anthony Jerone. “I’ve always been a dog person, but I never thought I’d make a business out of it,” she said. “I take a lot of pride and care in what I do. It’s great because I have the opportunity to have connections with other people.” Potential clients are encouraged to visit to learn more about the variety of dog training programs she offers.

Helene Scott is the founder of Florida Dog Training School of Tampa and has been involved with dogs since childhood. Scott is a graduate of the Academy of Canine Education in New York. The school services Hillsborough and Pasco counties and specializes in private in-home dog training and provides housebreaking, puppy kindergarten, basic and advanced obedience, behavior modification, and help for aggressive dogs and homes with multiple dogs.

Is it really necessary for me to pay a trainer for my dog’s problem?

Question by MYSTERY!!: Is it really necessary for me to pay a trainer for my dog’s problem?
So my dog is very bad seperation anxiety…Ive tried everything! Crate training, the desenistization theory, bitter apple on everything, VALIUM (the vet prescribed him for his anxiety)…EVERYTHING! and nothing has stopped him from freaking out and barking the whole time I am gone.. So the vet has suggested I meet with this Behavior Therapist for dogs and she will help… I talked to her and she charges $ 125 for a house call where she will “teach me a few excercises to get rid of this anxiety”…She has a PhD and is very top of the line but my parents, friends, and everyone that i know that has a dog says his destructive behavior is very normal since he still is a puppy (5 months). Every person that I have talked to says I should just let him suffer and eventually he will get used to being alone sometimes… $ 125 is ALOT of money for me right now and I am debating on whethere to meet with the trainer…or just let him suffer until things resolve by themselves? What do u guys think?
