Dogs are an excellent company for us, and there are some people who are even in love with them. A lot of people even have plenty of dogs in their houses when they don’t even know how to deal with them better than anyone else, so it’s okay if you don’t know anything about it either.

That’s why, in case you are a newbie with pets, and you have to take care of some puppy of a friend, don’t worry, here are some tips for you:

Cleanliness

bath-time

In case the dog is going to stay with you for a while, you should ask about important things like grooming. How many times he needs to bathe in a week, how much shampoo you should apply, if you need to brush their teeth, and if they brush their hair and how often.

Also, you should be familiarized with the products that the dog uses, for example: his shampoo or an ointment (if they need one), so you know which products to apply. You should also know that dogs cannot use human’s perfumes or creams.

Adapt Your Home

In case you don’t have pets, your house may not be habitable for dogs. But don’t worry, you can adapt your home to provide the care that the puppy needs without making any drastic changes.

Start by hiding any type of disinfectant or chemical that you own, collect all your shoes or any type of clothing to keep them from being bitten, and also hide any type of candy or chocolates that you have. Most importantly, keep the dog away from your room so itdoesn’t mess up your bed or devour your shoes.

Do Their “Things”

Keep Active

Ask your friend or the owner of the dog you are going to take care of, to give you a schedule of the dog’s activities, meals, and in case of being sick, when to take their medicines. All this so you know the exact time at which they should have their meals, take their medications, go to sleep, and get up, and if you should do any activity like go to the park or others.

Also, ask the owner anything you need to know about their special care, so you can adapt a bit more to the dog.

A dog needs fresh air. They shouldn’t be locked in the house all the time and there is no better place to take them out to than a park so they can play, interact with people, and get used to noise. So, in case you don’t know how to control your dog when you both go to the park, here are some tipswe had to learn the hard way:

You Must Educate It

First, to take your dog to public places like these, they must be properly trained to follow any order that you give, so you don’t have much trouble controlling them.

Control Dog’s Emotions

In case your dog is very excited at the time of leaving your house and getting to the park, first try to calm them down and then let them play quietly around.

Without a Leash

In case of going to a dog park, don’t worry, as your dog is safe so you can remove the leash without any problem as it’s a safe place for them. If you go to a public park, you can only release your dog if it’s well trained and listens to you, so you can avoid any problem.

Learn By Observing

Go to the parks and see so that dogs playing have a good side. You can observe other doggies’ attitudes and their behavior with their owners, so you will learn more to control your own dog.

You Must Be In Contact With Your Dog

The fact that your dog is playing at a park with other dogs doesn’t mean that you should disconnect completely and observe them from a distance. Always try to be close, talk, give them some love and play with your dog.

Without Toys

If your dog is playing with other dogs, don’t give them any of their toys since they will not need them, in order to keep the toy from getting lost or stolen since your puppy won’t be alone.

Always Alert

You should always be aware of what your dog is doing so you can control any movement they make in case there’s a dogfight, they want to flee, or any other hasty reaction they might have.

You Must Be Calm

You should always be calm to deal with your dog since they don’t react well to nervous behavior or shouting. So, if you are going to talk to them, it should be in a moderate tone, like this the dog doesn’t get stressed and you avoid any bad behavior on his behalf.

Relax

Try to relax and enjoy the moment you’re sharing with your dog. However, if you’re very worried about your pet’s behavior because you cannot control it, take certain classes to train them properly and don’t get so stressed.

Dogs are very happy when they go out to the street and they want to start running everywhere, that’s why the leash is so important. But it’s necessary that you take them out for a walk because they like that, and they can also stay physically and mentally active, which is very important for every dog.

dog-kiss

A lot of people have dogs because they’re the best friend that someone can have. They’re affectionate and playful, but also very intelligent. So, if you are trying to teach your dog some new tricks, but you don’t know which ones, Bark Park has some of them:

Greeting

There is no better way to show how polite your dog is than by greeting your friends or family. To do this, first put a bit of adhesive tape on your dog’s eye, and while he tries to remove it, try saying “salute” and then reward him with treats and give him love. Repeat it until they do it without using the tape.

Kiss

What a tender thing it is to get home and have your dog receive you with affection and kisses. They’re very affectionate with their owners and like to lick a lot, but you must also teach them how to kiss.

To do this, put a treat on your face and start telling him to give you a kiss when he approaches to get the treat, you walk away, and then you give him the prize.

Look Out Objects

This trick is excellent to keep your dog very active. First, start throwing things and running while you’re showing a treat to your dog, then when he manages to catch the object, make him bring it back so he can get a reward.

Dance

There’s nothing cuter than watching a dog dancing while listening to a song or when you order them to. It’s a trick that takes too much practice but it isn’t impossible to do it. However, it’s not recommended for overweight dogs or dogs with problems in their legs.

You start by lifting a treat so the dog gets up on two legs and try to reach it, when they do, try to say  “dance”, “turn”, “up”, and keep practicing it again until they do it automatically when you give the order.

Pick Up the Toys

This is an excellent way for your dog to help and keep your home clean. To do this, first, you must sit next to the toy box and in front of your dog, and then give them a toy which they need to keep in their mouth so you can put a treat inside the box for your dog to look for it.

High-Five

This trick is very good and super easy to teach. A good way to learn this trick is to put a treat that your dog will love in the palm of your hand. You will start to say “high five” and when they raise their paw, congratulate and pet them.

When dealing with dogs, mostly in their early years, or after they have been adopted from a “wilder” environment, it could be difficult for you while putting on an immense amount of stress on the dog. In order to avoid this from happening, it’s crucial for you to try any, or every, of these trick to train your pet.
