Most times, finding the right dog for your specific service requires no more than visiting a few shows or simply chatting with a few experts. It is your experience that will ultimately decide if the dog is a perfect match for your requirements or not. If you believe your requirements are not as severe as other people’s, then you have to ensure you first find the dog that can match your requirements.
To do this, you can attend the shows or visit the dog shelter for a few days to see how they match up with yours. If the dog you are looking for can only perform the simplest of commands, then you have to make it as easy as possible for him to do his job. This may mean giving him a command that is slightly easier than the last.
You can simply add a few simple words to be sure that he understands. This should help him understand the same command you are giving. Also, one tool you can employ is changing his food type depending on what task you have given him to do. There are lots of dogs out there that usually do not need a lot of food, but some may need quite a lot. For these dogs, ensure that you give them food whenever they have completed a job.
As I mentioned earlier, the most effective way to find out whether your dog is the right one for your specific needs is by simply visiting a few shows or chatting with dog experts. However, this is not always an option due to work schedules. On the other hand, all you have to do is read the classifieds or a bulletin board or simply visit a few shelters to find out whether the dog you are looking for is available.
You will likely find the dog you are looking for at one of the dog shows. In this case, make sure you are incredibly lucky to see him. It may be that there are quite a few dogs of the same breed or same gender and same general size which are available. Therefore, you can simply take one of these dogs home. The most you have to worry about is getting rid of the dog you don’t want.
Your dog will need to have his own dog bed, food and water bowl, collar, leash, dental products, dishes and toys. Your dog also needs to have its dog potty and crate.
If you’re lucky enough to have children in your home, your dog will need to have his own toys and treats for the children.
You may also need to have your crate for your dog to get used to it being off the lead.
All you have to do is take a look at the list above and you will be able to determine which dog house would best suit your dog. Don’t worry if you’re not lucky enough to have all these items right now. It’s not as hard as you may think. Just make sure you look into getting them while your dog is still young and make sure you are still using the same one for a few months. As your dog gets older and more experienced, you’ll see how easy it is to get accustomed to each one of them.
