Feeding your dog the right amount and type of food will maintain a healthy weight. This will help prevent illnesses that are obesity-related and also extend the lifespan of your dog.You should avoid feeding them scraps from the table that are unhealthy for them and adding to their already sufficient food intake. 

Also, there are certain foods that you should never give to a dog. Onions, whether raw or cooked, are toxic to dogs and can result in gastrointestinal irritation and possible damage to red blood cells. It may not be immediately obvious that the onions have caused problems to your dog, the signs of illness may occur several days later. Chocolate is a poisonous food for dogs. It contains theobromine, a stimulant that is greater in dark chocolate, which can cause kidney failure in dogs. Chocolate drops that are made for dogs are, of course, safe as they have been manufactured with dogs in mind. Cooked bones are best avoided because they can splinter and cause constipation or gut perforations. It is best to give your dog raw uncooked bone to chew on. Do not give them alcohol as this can lead to sickness and sometimes central nervous system damage. Other foods harmful to dogs include artificial sweeteners (Xylitol), avocado, corn on the cob, macadamia nuts, grapesand raisins. This list is not exhaustive, so do your research, if not giving your dog food that has been specifically made for them.

To help keep a dog fit and healthy through diet, additional foods can be purchased for dogs other than tins of dog food. For instance, biscuits, manufactured bones, and other food supplements. This will avoid the need to look for alternativesthat are unhealthy for your dog to provide variety in their diet.



Walk your dog daily to keep it fit and healthy. If you are not feeling particularly energetic then you should seek out a field where they can run free and enjoy themselves. This will save you from walking them so far yourself. Although, exercise is as beneficial to humans as it is to dogs. You can satisfy both these recommendations when you have a dog.

There are various aids you can buy when it comes to exercising your dog. The kind that will fling objects into the distance for dogs to retrieve. This then not only helps with exercise but also dog training.

Certain breeds will require more exercise than others, which will take up more of your time. Sporting or herding dogs, for instance, will require the most exercise. This means breeds such as Collies, Retrievers, Pointers, and German Shepherds, and some Spaniels. A Basset Hound, on the other hand, with its short legs, will not require so much exercise. It is worth researching this so that a dog suits your family situation. If you have children, then there will be plenty of available dog walkers.



To tackle the problem of bad breath in a dog, you should brush their teeth just like you do your own. You should get into the habit of doing this twice a week at least. It will also improve your dog’s smile in photographs because plaque and tartar result in receding gums and lost teeth.

It is not, however, easy cleaning a dog’s teeth. Nobody ever said it was. You can aid the process by massaging your dog’s lips with just your finger before moving onto their teeth and gums. You should gently brush them up and down. To assist you, dog toothpaste is available and so are soft toothbrushes that will fit onto your finger.


In conclusion, we can keep our dogs healthy by considering their diet as much as we do our own, by regularly exercising them as we exercise ourselves, and by not forgetting to brush their teeth.
