Dogs also need exercise. It helps them stay healthy. Best exercise they can get is going for a walk or playing fetch in the back yard. They also need time outside to do their business and to also relax in the sun. A dog should not be left outside too long in cold weather or hot weather. They can get frostbite or heatstroke just like humans.
Make sure your yard is completely fenced in or keep your dog on a leash. Make sure it is clear of harmful stuff. Antifreeze is very poisonous to dogs and can be fatal. They also have electronic fences for unfenced yards.
Different states have adapted dog parks in their areas. This is a fenced area that allows dogs to run and play freely. It allows your dog to have contact with other dogs. It also allows people to associate with other people while letting their dogs get the exercise they need. Most dog parks have benches and weather shelters, as well as accessible water. Most have dog parks have litter bags and a place to dispose of his waste. If the dog park does not provide these, it would be best to bring your own bags and clean up after your dog out of respect for the other dog owners. If the dog park has no source of water you should bring your own. You do not want your dog to dehydrate while he is playing. When associating your dogs with other pets, it is best to make sure it is current on all vaccines.
