12 Harmful Things You Do to Your Dog Without Realizing It

  • Published on Jul 24, 2018
  • How to Keep Your Dog Healthy. If you're a dog owner, you surely want your pet to be healthy and to live a long and happy life. But you might sometimes do things that can potentially harm your canine companion without even realizing it. Here are some common mistakes people unintentionally make when it comes to taking care of their doggies.
    Choosing the wrong collar 1:00
    Leaving a dog alone in the car 3:08
    Neglecting your dog's teeth 4:15
    Letting your dog eat everything 6:07
    Bringing puppies to a dog park 7:47
    Using physical punishment 8:13
    Providing too little stimulation 9:48
    Not securing your dog in the car 10:31
    Yelling when your dog does something wrong 11:05
    Skipping flea, tick, and worming treatment 11:28
    Leaving harmful objects around 11:51
    Neglecting breed-specific health issues 12:22
    -There are several types of collars, and you need pick the one that best suits the needs and character of your pup, as well as a place to attach his license. Whether you've settled on a harness or gone for a collar, the second (and just as important!) step is making sure it’s the right size. If a collar or harness is too big, your pooch may escape.
    -Dogs don't sweat like people do, so they can overheat much faster than you’d think. And since they lack this crucial ability to cool themselves off, the consequences of staying in a locked car can turn out fatal.
    -A dog’s teeth need to be cleaned just like people’s teeth do. Don't use toothpastes and toothbrushes designed for people! There are special ones made just for dogs, and they’re pretty different from the human kinds.
    -Never feed human food to your dog! It's way too salty, too spicy, and too fatty for them. In fact, most dishes you eat are severely toxic for them.
    -To start with, dogs can sometimes be passive carriers of diseases. Secondly, grown-up dogs, especially large ones, can be incredibly rough when playing and running around.
    -Physical punishment doesn’t work and actually does the opposite of what you want - it makes your dog scared of you. Reward-based training is much more effective than physical discipline.
    -Just like you, dogs need constant mental and physical stimulation-, especially working breeds, which is why regular walking is a must.
    -If you don’t secure your dog in the car and you end up in an accident, your pet can get seriously injured or even killed.
    -Dogs don’t understand “NO”, so it only freaks your dog out, especially if you’re ticked off about something that happened a while ago.
    -Some people say you can take a break from flea, tick, and heartworm medicine in winter if you live in a cold climate, but you really should discuss it with your veterinarian.
    -Dog-proof your house by putting away anything your pet can chew or swallow. Things like medications, screws and nails, magnets, coins, and batteries should never be within your pet’s reach.
    -Always do your research before you get a pet so that you’ll know how to best take care of it and what problems to look out for.

    I am warning everyone!!! If your dog digests xylitol, they only have about a five percent chance of surviving. The reaction only takes about ten minutes. If it happens DON’T HESITATE TO TAKE YOUR DOG TO THE VET!!!!!!!!!! I had to learn this the hard way.

    my dog just died, i didn't get his behaviour at last, he stops eating n drinking, he looks like a skeleton , we took him to vet, he got good, but again he got sick, i thought he would be fine, its was my biggest mistake thet i didn't took him to vet again, one day just after 3 days, the day 4 he went in the eve that he usually don't do as he goes always in night, he used to return in early morning but he didn't that day, my relative saw him at some place in the morning n wave n when he came back he saw his dead body there only, i don't know why his behaviour was like he doesn't eat anything n at last of his moments when he needed me most , i wasn't there, don't know why he isolated him from me for whole 18 hours? how ? 😭😭😭 somebody tell me about his this behaviour plz😭why he left me all alone .?

    You forgot 1 thing that you MUST INCLUDE. LOVE, you have to show your puppy through to old age that you love them. Also let them know through your action that you have their back. When you show your pooch this you can bet you will get the same from them. And it makes a happy home for you and them.

    Border collie, right with the behaviour coller but didn't work. He barks, which dog do bark! But he'd bark none stop because of attention seeking. Mostly barking over conversations. The only thing I can add and I think this video covered some of it... diet! In pedigrees the owner really needs to know the breed. Such foods are harmful, onion, garlic. There is a list. Can cause fits. I use to keep his diet dry based and treats was dog based products. It's also cholesterol reasons. Thanks for posting

    Unfortunately half of these wouldn't work for my mother's dog. He's one of those very stubborn breeds that requires a firm hand...no we don't hit him...we just have to be a little extra persuasive sometimes. I think he does more harm to himself falling off the couch while sleeping.

    My mom has our dog (a german shepherd chow) she has our dog stay in the cage (all day everyday) yeah we give him food and water and go to the bathroom, but my mom has a bathroom down stairs with a doggy door witha very small backyard we have
    I try to convice her to let our dog go in the house, but she said hes too "wild", our dog has very long nails, very big, and hasnt been in the house since he was about a couple months old
    We try to get our dog on walks but my mom said we have to buy all this stuff for him
    Sometimes it makes me sad because, the first night we got our dog, i was sleeping and heard some whining of some kind and my baby dog was looking at me, i knew he loved me
    Another thing was, my mom said to not have our dog upstairs, so one time I brought my dog upstairs with me and i had a cabinet with drawers right near my bed and was just rolling around on my bed and i fell on the cabinets and blamed it on my dog when they saw what happened, i feel so bad now, but that was the last time i ever saw my dog upstairs with me
    But the even sad part is, my mom, and my sister yell at my dog
    I know my dog loves me more but it makes me sad everytime because hes just a dog
    My mom also made this newspaper roll thing and told me to my dog (as a baby) hit my dog with it, my mom and sister will always tell me to hit the dog harder but I couldnt, and i shouldnt
    I hate how my family treats our dog like this, I cry everytime i think about these moments, and I cried writing this
    Please, please can someone tell me how my dog can have a better life, and to convince my mom to not have our dog just living in a cage all day
    I will accept any help
    Thank you for reading this, and someone please give me advice
    I want my dog to be happy again
