8 things you should never do to your dog

NEVER FORGET ABOUT THEIR TEETH

Abandoning your dog’s dental teeth can lead to some serious consequences including tartar and plaque build-up, chronic pain, and eventually gum disease that can spread to the rest of her body.

Never overfeed your dog

Consumption of too much dog food or treats may lead to obesity, so it’s important to know your pet’s eating habits are keeping him healthy.

Never let your dog lead you

Pulling on the leash is one of the most common training challenges dog people face. However, after a few sessions of off-leash walk training, your dog will know that good things come from sticking by your side.

use a crate as punishment

Dogs should not be sent to their crates as punishment. Their crates should be a place they enjoy for training. When they are sent there as a type of discipline, it confuses them and makes training harder.

NEVER SHARE DANGEROUS FOOD WITH YOUR DOG

There are several human foods that can even be deadly to your pet. To ensure your pet lives a long and healthy life, stick to the food on pet store shelves that experts have recommended for them.

AVOID THE VET

Dogs should see their vet regularly for checkups. If your dog is sick, don’t try to diagnose him at home. Let the professionals handle it.

NEVER LEAVE YOUR DOG ALONE IN HE CAR

If your dog is locked in the car, he’ll be very uncomfortable and could even suffer heatstroke.

never use the wrong collar

If you’re using the wrong kind of collar, you could be physically or emotionally hurting your companion canine without even knowing it.
