There are so many simple dog care ideas to make your dog’s life a whole lot easier and your dog a lot more comfortable. Simple dog care ideas are not only very easy, they’re also relatively inexpensive. I think that a lot of people just give up on trying to keep their dog healthy and happy. They think that they’re just going to have to deal with it and hope that things are better in the future. This is not true, there are simple dog care tips and tricks you can do yourself to help your dog to be happier and healthier. It doesn’t have to cost you a fortune, and you’ll find that the end result will be a happier dog and a healthier pet for all the time and money you spend on it.
One of the easiest and cheapest things you can do is brush your dog’s teeth every day. Make sure to use a natural toothbrush because synthetic ones are not as effective and some of them don’t even work. Start off by brushing on the inside of his mouth and around his tongue and gums. Once he’s had a chance to clean himself well, move onto the outside of his mouth and between his gums and teeth. Don’t forget to brush his teeth before you take him out for a walk. Another great way to keep your dog’s teeth clean is to get a toothpaste that will dissolve plaque on his teeth and remove it from his mouth. Some people have their dogs brush their own teeth for a few minutes before they get out for their walk, but for most people, this is not necessary.
For other simple dog care ideas you can start with providing him with an ample amount of clean water. The dog does not need a lot, just a little will do. Be sure to use bottled water so that you know that you are not contributing to the problem of tap water being contaminated. Be sure to get your dog a nice warm bath too, but make sure that you do it right the first time. A good rule of thumb is to put in a cup of warm water and then put a half cup of borax in it. If your dog isn’t feeling particularly relaxed then leave the bath for an hour or two before you take it out. Just remember that if you don’t get your dog a bath soon enough, you may find yourself giving him one at a spa in the future!
