Today I have brought an interesting article about some popular dog myths it’s time we stopped believing. Let me share this article with all of you here.
1. All dogs love swimming:
Dogs that have a powerful chest & a heavy skull are not very good swimmers-bulldogs, mastiffs, dachshunds & boxers..
2. The best food for dogs is raw meat:
Some dog owners believe that dogs ought to be fed with raw meat. But meat doesn’t contain enough nutrients & vitamins that dogs need & it may contain parasites & pathogenic microorganisms.
3. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks:
You can & should teach your dog new tricks no matter what age they are. Obviously, this can take more time & patience with older dogs.
4. Dogs need to chew on bones:
Many people have continued to believe that dogs need bones. This myth has been depicted in literature & art but in fact, bones can do far more harm than good. Dogs can chew on them & easily swallow sharp pieces that can injure their digestive tract.
4. Fluffy dogs should be shaved in summer so they are not hot:
Many dog owners shave their pets in the summer thinking that it is the right way to save their pets from the heat but in most cases, it’s not true. That is because dogs have something called an undercoat. Now which is the best one you like from this post guys? Let me know your answers & opinion about this post in the comment box & share it with everyone whom you know.
