The health and general wellness of our dogs plays a huge role in their behavior and the nature of our relationship with them. An integral part of responsible ownership, dog wellness is a commitment to the health and the highest level of nutrition in their lives as well as an understanding of how to properly care for our dogs.
A happy, well-balanced dog is typically exercised on a regular basis, and is both physically and mentally enriched. Staying educated about dangers such as toxic substances and the effect of extreme weather are our responsibilities as dog owners so that we can keep our pets safe.
Of course it is also critical to have your dog routinely examined by a veterinarian, and to remain aware of common health issues that could affect your dog.
Dog wellness is about more than just feeding your dog good food – it's a way of life that ensures that both we and our four-legged friends get the most out of the unique relationship between man and dog.
