The responsibility of having a pet

Argentines have a special relationship with pets and in particular with dogs


Argentines have a special relationship with pets and in particular with dogs, so incorporating them into our home and our family is a decision that will fill us with joy, but it is also a responsibility for life. There are certain proceeds that we need to take into account in order to take care of them properly.

first thing is to know how long it takes the care, health and education of a dog and, consequently, whether it will have enough time to achieve its needs and a correct adaptation to the new owner in which he will live. Another issue is that a dog, at all stages of his life, will involve an economic investment. It does not have to be a very large expense, but you need to take into account your visits to the vet, special food, toys and recreation.

We can investigate with shelters and protectors in our area if they have any dogs with the characteristics we are looking for that need a second chance. If we finally decide on a breed dog, it is important that we know that it will not necessarily have a guaranteed specific temperament. Each individual is unique; therefore to model temperament it is advisable to begin his education as soon as possible. And let us always remember to consult with a professional in canine behavior in the face of any doubt.

Once the new member arrives at their new home, whether puppy or adult, it is important to know some issues that will help them adapt in the best way. Routine will help reduce possible anxieties and stabilize the dog's behavior. This will know when your food is touched and also helps you always know when that time comes without despair, just as it happens with the ride or the game moments.

An important issue is to keep the rules clear throughout your life. What is allowed puppy should be kept, as is prohibited. If you are not going to be allowed to climb to armchairs or adult beds, you should not be allowed as a child. The dog will not understand the rules if they change continuously.

It is common for puppies to be allowed to sleep in our rooms and even in beds. But still cry, he has to understand that there are moments of loneliness and independence. If this is not respected then it will cost much more than you understand why that habit was changed or what happened that you no longer have that privilege. Besides, this will help him stay alone when we have to leave the house and we can't take him.

Finally, from the 3rd to 4th month of life of the dog it is essential that you know the environment that will surround it. That will depend on your relationship with certain adult stimuli: fear, anxiety or aggressiveness. It is important that you have good experiences with the veterinarian, children, annoying noises, other people, other animals, and everything you are going to relate to in your adult life.

Similarly, if our new family member is an adult dog and has socialization problems, he can be helped by working together with professionals. We can all learn, no matter how old or experience you have lived, giving a second chance to a dog is a beautiful gesture of love.

Family commitment is key, since the rules and routines established on the first day must be respected by all members of the family group. The healthiest thing for a dog are the same rules with everyone. It is very important to have a polite dog, as it will help you a lot to understand how to behave.
