Tip #7 – Taking Care Of Senior Dogs
Every living creature ages and grows old, but it is especially sad to watch this happen to dogs. It’s not all bad though, older dogs tend to be calmer and require less exercise and supervision. They make good companions, and friends, rather than acting like children all the time as younger dogs do.
Even though dogs who are sliding into a state of ill health may require more time and attention from their owner to provide special food or other needs, that is a small price to pay for a lifetime of unconditional love and loyalty. Some breeds of dogs live longer than others, but it always sad to see them go.
Puppies reach maturity very quickly and many people don’t realize how early you must begin socialization and training until it’s too late and bad habits have already formed. Nevertheless, these young dogs might just need some fundamental obedience work. Younger dogs tend to be more high-energy and have shorter attention spans than older dogs but these pups have a lot of growing and learning left to do.
