Dog Walking & Nutrition For Your Dog

Nutrition

Feed your dog a diet that meets all of his nutritional requirements. Puppies have different needs than a senior dog. Watch your dog’s behavior. Food allergies may manifest in skin conditions or a lackluster coat. The dog may not be as energetic as he was or your dog may pack on extra weight. If you are not sure what changes to make in your pet’s diet, talk to your veterinarian. Some dogs do better on a specific commercial dog food while others need raw foods to do their best. Ideally, you want to find a type of food that serves your dog optimally and keeps them healthy.

Exercise

Every dog needs daily exercise. This may be long dog walks through the neighborhoods in Chicago, a trip to the dog park every day to play and run, or fun with you playing Frisbee or fetch. Every dog will have a different energy level that needs to be addressed. If you don’t spend time with your dog exercising, you may find your dog becomes bored and destructive. He has a lot of energy that needs to be channeled in some manner. Once you find the proper way to address your dog’s needs, make it into a routine. Your dog will look forward to it, and this is one of the primary things to keep a dog happy.

Dental Needs

Some dogs have more dental needs than others. Keep an eye on your dog’s teeth and breath. You can use doggy toothbrushes, talk to your vet about dental care, or switch to a raw diet. All of these methods will help keep your dog’s teeth healthy.

Grooming

Grooming is crucial for your pet. Long-haired dogs should be brushed daily to remove loose hairs, debris, and parasites from their coat. Short haired dogs enjoy a nice rubdown even if they aren’t being brushed. All dogs will need routine nail trimming.
