Self introduction

Dogs can be great to have around, as they are loyal and friendly. This, however, isn't the way that they're going to be at first. They require proper care along with some training to follow the rules you set for them. You will learn some things here, keep on reading.

Be careful with your dog around Christmas season, many dangers are lurking just under the festive ambiance. For instance, electrical chords are typically strewn about during the holidays, and dogs often chew them, creating an electrical hazard. Dogs may be tempted to eat the decorations on the tree. They may also be tempted by the tree water, which can be toxic.

Start training your dog as soon as you bring them home. Create a vocabulary list that all your family members will use to command the dog and stick to it. Dogs can become confused if the same words are not used to give them directions. The dog will see "get over here"� and "come"� as two different commands.
