Don’t forget dog etiquette while your walking your dog

Dog Etiquette for Dog Owners

So many of us love to walk our dogs but we must remember dog etiquette . It’s great exercise for us, our dogs and with this amazing weather we’ve been having here – why not get out and walk your dog. Sometimes people neglect the proper etiquette of being out with your dog.

Here are some of the basics:

  • 1. ALWAYS pick up after your dog- ALWAYS! There really is no excuse for not cleaning up after your dog. Keep baggies in your car, in your pocket or wherever you need to. If he’s got to go, fine, but just clean up after him.
  • 2. Don’t let your dog run up to other dogs without permission from the other person. While your dog might be friendly, the other dog might not. Don’t assume! If you see a neighbor with multiple dogs on a walk, still don’t assume that their dogs are friendly with others. Always ask. There’s a new trend of tying a yellow ribbon on your dogs leash to indicate my dog is not dog friendly. Watch for those.
  • 3. Don’t allow your dog to jump on other people. While we love our dogs so much and think that most everything they do is cute – others may not. Be respectful of others space and keep all 4 paws on the ground.

One must do with your dog – HAVE FUN! Most of our dogs wait at home patiently for us all day long. Just imagine doing that. You wait and wait for the person you love most in the world and just want to spend a little time with them. Sometimes the dogs get our time and sometimes they don’t but they will always remain hopeful that we will have time for them. Remember that our dogs love us unconditionally and deserve so much.

Remember to try to be the person that our dog thinks we are!
