Most Common Dog Walking Mistakes

On a walk, the owner of the dog can make mistakes, that is, behave incorrectly, firstly, in relation to his dog, secondly, in relation to the people around him, and, thirdly, in relation to strangers.

Owner’s mistakes in relation to his dog:

The owner walks the dog off a leash. Such a frivolous walk can lead to the fact that the dog is either lost or run over by a car. And dogs get lost quite often.

The owner carelessly watches his dog, even if it is on a leash. Due to the carelessness of the owner, the dog can eat something from the ground, and this can lead to the poisoning and death of the pet.

The owner walks the dog a little. A single walk with the dog should be at least 30 minutes. You need to walk with the dog for at least 2 hours a day. The walk should be of such length that the dog returns home tired.

The owner rarely walks the dog. An adult dog is walked 2-3 times a day. Puppies are much more common, depending on age.

The owner communicates little or not enough with the dog on the street.

The owner educates and trains the dog little or not enough during the walk.

The owner walks the dog along the same route and does not introduce him to the diversity of the outside world.

The owner allows his dog to interact with stray dogs, which can lead to infection of the dog with infectious and parasitic diseases.

Erroneous behavior of the owner of the dog in relation to strangers:

Imposing the company of your dog on strangers. The phrase “Do not be afraid, she does not bite!” does not make the owner more tactful than he really is. An outsider may be allergic to dog hair; he may be terrified of dogs; a dog can stain a person. And simply – now this person does not want to communicate with your dog!

The owner allows the dog to come up to the children. The dog may not bite the child, but it can scare him or drop him by pushing. A well-bred dog on the street should not behave aggressively and not lovingly towards strangers, but indifferent.

Walking medium and large dogs without a muzzle. A large dog without a muzzle can cause fear in children and their parents. The owner can teach his dog to carry a toy in its mouth while walking, this will relieve the unnecessary stress of strangers.

The owner allows the dog to bark for a long time and annoyingly, dig holes in the lawns and gnaw on tree branches.

The owner allows the dog to carry out departures on the sidewalk and, moreover, does not remove its waste products.

Sticks to dogs of other owners with attention and affection.

Imposes his and his dog society to other owners with dogs, without asking permission.

Allows you to fight other dogs, chase cats and pigeons.
