How to Take Pride In Your Rescue Dog as an Owner
This blog came to mind for me when my step mom who is visiting with my dad all the way from Thailand decided it was a great idea to wash my Samoyed puppy, Indy in the shower with her. I guess rescue dogs bc, Indy was a bit too dirty for her. She had spent the last two days cleaning the house, she likes to clean and has been enjoying cleaning everything in sight for us during her visit.
So she took indy into the shower and used some puppy shampoo I had for when he was younger. She spent about an hr in there with the dog and then she spent another hour trying to dry and comb him. I don’t have a hair dryer at the moment, so she was kinda screwed. He turned out magnificent! He has the whitest coat he ever has had! I don’t dare take him to the dog park now because he will turn brown like he always does when rolling around with the other doggos. I don’t have the heart to do that to her.
Do you love your dog and want to show it? None of us wants to be that person that never shuts up about their dog. The best way to show your pride is by doing. You know what they say, actions speak louder than words.
When your dog does its business, make sure to clean it up. You’ll have to bring the needed supplies when you leave the house. It is bad for dogs and dog owners everywhere when someone leaves their ‘business’ all over the sidewalk. No one likes this, I pick up Indy’s mess all the time, it’s just the appropriate behaviour. We are living in a society after all!
Keep your dog on a leash, so that you can retain control if necessary. It’s a great way to show you care about your dog and other dogs and people. This is especially important if you are in a public area where there are children. They always want to meet Indy, I just keep him on a tight leash in case he gets too close for their comfort.
If you live in a city or anywhere with neighbours, make sure to train your pet and environment to consider your neighbours and animal rescue bc. Don’t let your dog run onto their property.
