Dogs: A Good Upbringing

The basics of responsible dog ownership may be summed up by these simple, golden rules:

  • Teach your dog elementary obedience so that he or she is under control at all times.
  • Feed your dog from his or her own dishes.
  • Never allow your dog to run loose or wander unsupervised.
  • Keep your dog on a lead anywhere near a road or farm animals.
  • Do not allow your dog to foul pavements, buildings, lawns, gardens or open spaces where children play.
  • Always clean up after your dog, preferably burying faeces in the garden.
  • Be thoughtful of your surrounding neighbours and prevent your dog from disturbing them through excessive noise or otherwise.
  • Provide your dog with a bed. A dog needs its own space, somewhere to rest, and somewhere to be sent after misbehaving.
  • Never take your dog into a shop where food is present.
  • Keep your dog clean and well groomed; check for fleas and other parasites regularly.
  • Establish a weekly routine to shake out, aerate and wash your dogs bedding.
  • Wash your hands after handling your pet.
  • Don’t feed your dog uncooked meat or offal.
  • Register your pet as a patient and yourself as a client with a veterinary surgery. Don’t wait for an emergency.
  • Worm your dog according to a veterinarian’s instructions.
  • Obtain advice from your veterinarian should you wish your dog to have puppies at some stage.
  • Make sure your pet is cared for while you’re away on holiday.
  • Owning a dog is basically common sense; look after your pet as if it were a family member. Keep in mind that problems with neighbours or your local council can be costly. Just love your dog and it will love you back with interest.
