Understand that your dog may not like the same kind of treats or playtime as another dog you are familiar with, and be patient while teaching new commands. Keep in mind that dogs are creatures of habit, so stick to a consistent routine and reinforce actions with positive actions rather than negativity. As with humans, dogs need nutritious food to grow healthy and strong, which helps prevent costly trips to the vet later down the road. Above all, however, enjoy the unconditional love and fun that man’s best friend can bring to new pet owners!
