Whatever type of climate you live in, be it blisteringly hot, biting cold, somewhere in between or – like the UK – all three on the same day, your dog should never be left alone outdoors for long periods without proper living conditions and access to adequate shelter. This might be as simple as leaving the back door open or, if that is impractical or unacceptable, by giving your dog an outside home and exercise run.
You will learn that men have psychological hot buttons that when pushed in the right way, makes them your robot. They will follow you around like a little puppy and practically lick your shoes. This is why they try to act so macho. It is all a disguise to keep you from knowing that inside they are still a little boy. If you need proof of this, see how they act when they get together to watch sports.
Try to feed your dog indoors if possible. Apart from keeping food scraps away from garden pests and perhaps uninvited guests of the wild animal variety, this has the advantage of making your dog feel part of your family. Dogs are, after all, companionable animals and like to feel they belong.
Dogs can also exhibit gastrointestinal symptoms in relation to food allergies. Sometimes the food they are allergic with will irritate their gastrointestinal system causing them to vomit or pass out loose stools.
If your yard is not fenced you should consider making a suitable running pen for your pet. Even if it is fenced you might have valuable plants or carefully tended flower beds that do not mix well with a boisterous animal. Some sort of separation between american bully and flowers might be a good idea!
There are numerous ways to potty train your puppy, depending on your circumstances and dog type. Paper training is suitable for puppies that have not been vaccinated yet and for those who live in high raise apartments where access to a garden by the dog itself is almost impossible.
Introduce the dogs to each other slowly and on neutral grounds. Once back home, supervise mealtime and follow this with a game. This will help to establish rewards for good behaviour. Once the dogs become friends it is only a matter of time before they sort out their pack differences. They will enjoy the company of each other and you really will have twice the fun!
