What Do Dogs Expect From Their Owners

By: Ed Gonzalez

Dogs expect their masters to be responsible for their health and well being. They want to be treated as part of the family. They expect owners to spend time with them and give them the attention they need. They like their masters to be their pack leaders. Owners must take charge and see to it that their dogs follow the things they say. In doing so, owners must never endanger the lives of their beautiful and wonderful pet dogs. Dogs feel that their owners must treat them nicely and lovingly. They don't like being shouted at or being hit.

Always remember to pet and hold your dogs calmly. They will surely like this. Dogs like their owners to take the initiative during play activities and they will follow. These cute pet dogs want their owners to tell them what to do and not the other way around. Any dog would like to have special treats when they please their owners. Give them dog cookies when they are obedient and after entertaining you with all the tricks they have learned. Be sure that you treat them like a family member. At times they want to be beside the dinner table when you are eating. Let them do so and provide them with their dog food. Pet dogs are fun loving animals. They like tagging along with their adopted family on road trips. They will surely like this. Just make sure you bring what they need like their medicines, food and toys.
Because they feel like a family member, never shove them away when the family is gathered together watching their favorite tv shows or movies in the house. They like the feeling of being accepted. As pack leaders, they expect you to guide them always especially when then you are taking walks. They must be told of what is acceptable and what is not. They don't like to be guessing on what is required of them. There are do's and don'ts and this is what you should make clear to them. Never intimidate your dogs if they do something wrong because they can retain this image in their minds..Dogs can't take care of themselves all the time. You must see to it that their health is well taken cared of. This is so essential in showing your love for your dogs.

Dogs are the most wonderful companions you can have especially when you are alone. They want you to always be their master but most of all a loving and dedicated one to them. After teaching them all the things they should and should not do, you must learn to trust them. They need your trust if they are to be considered your loyal friend..They expect love and not cruelty from any dog owner. When these dogs learn the things you expect them to do, they will remember. Dogs have good memory and good imagery.

Treat your pet dogs rightfully and you can expect your dogs to become loving towards to you. They will cuddle up to you because they know you are a faithful friend. Make them feel accepted and they will be your best friends forever. Dogs are considered man's best friend but if you act bad towards them they can be your fiercest enemy. They will become stubborn, bored and destructive. You acquired these pet dogs to guard your homes and bring you happiness, so keep them safe and happy. These are the things that they expect from respectable dog owners.

Good advice to pet owners. The rewards of keeping a happy healthy pet are enormous - physically, emotionally & spiritually. I would not be without our little managerie..especially the 5 dogs :-) We also have 4 hens and 2 cats but the dogs are such close companions. (Thanks for dropping by my blog!) Magic & Caoimhe's Mum
