Watch Your Dogs

Did you know that the death toll from dog attacks in the USA is greater than from cobra bites in India? Maybe it's because Americans often keep dogs that is overprotective of their owners and will kill anything that is unrecognised.

One case, for example. A baby was killed after being bit by two Rottweilers. The dogs are known to be extremely vicious to strangers, and likes to stay on the roof watching for strangers. The owner was gone for a regular holiday and left the two dogs at home without being lashed or tied. The baby was being sunned on his backyard when suddenly the dogs leap and bite the baby.

Some dogs are known to chase their prey until they can kill them. They are usually categorised as hunting dogs. Some are more vicious than others, such as the Rottweiler.

You should watch your dogs from biting other people. tell them it's not good, and give them some punishment, like patting the butt a little hard, or hitting it with a newspaper. But don't be too harsh on your pet. You should teach the pet slowly and patiently.

Feeling like having a pet?

If you want to have a pet, consider some of the following.

RECOGNIZE YOUR PET CANDIDATE. You must know what kind of animal you want to keep as a pet. Find as many information as you can on the pet. For example, if you want to keep a Pomeranian dog, find info on Pomeranians, how to keep it, and how to take care of it. You must also know its general behaviour.

CHECK IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT. It's not just about the cost of buying the pet, it also contains the maintenance money and all sorts of its needs. Buy a low-maintenance pet if necessary.

BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN PET. This is the main foundation for keeping animals: RESPONSIBILITY. Miss one need, and the pet will get stressed. If you are to leave the house for a long time, make sure you can get someone to take care of your pet, or put it in a good pet kennel.

GET TIPS FROM OTHER OWNERS. If you have a friend who owns a pet that is a same kind as yours, ask them about how to care for your pets. This will ensure you will get more experience in pet caring.
