New Dog Owner? Here’s How To Keep The Pup Healthy

Getting a dog will change anybody’s life for the better. The unconditional love of a pup will inject an added sense of happiness to your household, and is something that the whole family can enjoy as one.

However, all dog owners have a huge responsibility to keep their furry friends happy and healthy. It’s quite a simple challenge, but it does require some attention. With these simple tips, though, you’ll be sure to provide the care that your pooch deserves.

Here’s everything you need to know.


Nutrition is a key element to the dog’s health and happiness. If you fail to get this right, then signs will show both physically and mentally. As a responsible owner, you should learn about the best foods for your breed of dog and act suitably.

Meanwhile, you can treat your pup to various treats too. You can even purchase special ice cream made for dogs. The key, as with humans, is to strike a balance.


A healthy diet is crucial to the dog’s health, but it still needs regular exercise too. Not only is this a vital item for its physical health, but it can also play an integral role in brain development. This is especially true when you use stimulating games to encourage the pup to work for its food.

Meanwhile, you should look to mix in some walks. A combination of favourite routes and new territories will ensure that the dog gains more from those adventures. Besides, it will make it a little more exciting for you too.


Employing the basic formula of exercise and diet will only go so far, though. It’s equally important to take preventative measures to avoid various health conditions. Dogs rely on their teeth for everything, so it’s imperative that you take good care of their dental hygiene.

Moreover, you must look to keep fur in good health too. There’s nothing worse than seeing your pup suffer with issues that could have been prevented. If you want to show your furry friend the love it deserves, taking these steps is vital.


Physical health isn’t the only thing that needs to be considered. If the dog is to remain happy, it needs mental stability too. Positive obedience trainers can ensure that your pooch learns to be well behaved, which will benefit you too.

Routine is important for the dog’s development. Whatever you do, make sure that you act quickly. Otherwise, it will be very hard to break those habits. An emotionally stable dog is a happy one. Do not forget it.


The dog’s health isn’t simply about adopting a personal routine. It also needs to feel comfortable in your home surroundings. One of the most important aspects is that you promote positive relationships with other pets that you may already have.

All dogs need to feel safe and loved in their home. Achieve this, along with the other items, and you will not go wrong. In reward, you’ll have a dog that repays you with the love that only man’s best friend can provide.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
