Unfortunately your dog does not have the same nutritional requirements as you do. It is important to feed your dog with food well balanced in nutrients and vitamins. Make sure you do some research on dog food ahead of time. Also make sure that your dog does not overeat, dog obesity is becoming real problem lately.

2. Exercise.

Make sure your dog gets necessary exercise each day. Dogs may develop certain health problems due to the lack of exercise. Every veterinarian will tell you that good exercise program can improve your dog's health and prevent potential heart problems. Exercising your dog in early age is very important, and it also helps to strengthen muscles and joints.

3. Preventative visits to a veterinarian.

Take regular trips to veterinarian to insure that your dog is vaccinated. Preventative care may prove to save you some money in a long run. It may be impossible to foresee ahead everything that can happened to your four-legged fried. In recent years few companies had introduced veterinarian insurance that will cover some of your trips to veterinarian. It is always the best to enroll your pet in a plan while your dog is still young. Unfortunately some providers will not accept your dog into their program after certain age.

Caring for your your dog requires some effort and planing ahead and even some expense. But the reward of companionship from your four-legged friend can be priceless.
