Dog people like to pretend they know everything about dogs—especially first time dog owners. They know how to walk them the right way, bathe them the right way and even talk to them the right way. Well, is there ever a wrong way? There most certainly is. Here are some facts that are really, really wrong.
- All dogs stink.
Not if you bathe them and groom them. Yes, some dogs smell worse than others but not ALL dogs stink.
- All dogs have to be professionally trained
Nope. Teach them yourself and if you need extra help then talk to a trainer.
- A wagging tail means they’re happy
It can mean a whole lot more. They could be anxious, nervous, scared or hungry.
- Dogs eat grass when they’re sick
Sometimes dogs just want to eat grass because they need the nutrientsD in their diet…or they just like the taste.
- Dogs only see in black and white
Nope. They see other colors too. Not many others but more than black and white.
- Pit bulls are dangerous
I hope you don’t actually believe this. These dogs are born sweet and they will stay sweet depending on the care they’re given. They’re just like every other dog.
- You can give a dog a bone
Don’t do it! A cooked dog bone can splinter and choke your dog.
