The Most Common Mistakes Dog Owners Make

Constantly feeding them with treats

Over-dependence on treats may lead your dog to respond to food and nothing else!

Leaving your dog in a hot vehicle

The temperature in a car can quickly become dangerous for your dog, and only a few minutes can be deadly.

Waiting to punish your dog

It is important to address undesirable behavior promptly. Dogs can only link a punishment to a specific behavior when it is given right away.

Lack of comprehension of your dog's preferred rewards

Just like people, dogs have varying preferences when it comes to receiving rewards.

Using strong cleaning chemicals

These toxins can enter their bodies through their paws when they walk on damp surfaces, for instance.

Choosing not to use a seat belt for your canine

Dogs, like humans, require seat belts. This is because they face similar risks if an accident occurs.

Dropping the leash and "forcing" an interaction

Introducing your dog to other dogs can either be a positive or a stressful experience. To ensure their well-being, it is advisable to initially have them meet while on a leash.

Thinking your dog chews your shoe as revenge

This typically indicates separation anxiety, and is unrelated to seeking retribution.

Feeding your canine from your plate

Feeding your dog something they shouldn't eat not only creates a bad habit but also poses a risk.
