Essential Pet Health and Wellness Tips Every Dog Owner Should Know

Essential Pet Health and Wellness Tips Every Dog Owner Should Know


As proud owners of dogs, ensuring the health and wellness of our furry companions is a top priority. Today we'll explore some essential tips and practices to help you keep your pets happy, healthy, and thriving.

  1. Nutrition:

At The Naughty Dog, we believe that proper nutrition is the foundation of good health for our furry friends. We recommend feeding a balanced diet that meets your pet's specific nutritional needs, with guidance from your veterinarian. Our team can also help you choose high-quality pet food options and provide advice on incorporating fresh, whole foods into your pet's diet when appropriate.  We feed our dogs a mixture of raw food from West Texas Primal Bites and Gentle Giants.  Kibble is great but we've found a lot of health benefits from feeding our pups raw food.  We want them to live long, happy, healthy lives and we've noticed a huge difference since incorporating the raw food.

  1. Exercise and Physical Activity:

Regular exercise is a cornerstone of wellness for our dogs. Whether it's brisk walks around the neighborhood or lively play sessions in the backyard, keeping your pet active is essential. The Naughty Dog team encourages daily exercise routines tailored to your pet's breed, age, and energy level to promote overall well-being. We personally love using the strike force dog tug from our website to incorporate a fun playful tug of war session with your dog and also strengthening your bond with your best friend as well.

  1. Grooming and Hygiene:

Good grooming practices are a must for keeping out dogs looking and feeling their best. From regular brushing to occasional baths and nail trims, our team can offer tips and techniques for maintaining your pet's coat, skin, and overall hygiene. We like to take our pups to Chewy's Bonetique for a great overall grooming experience.

  1. Preventive Healthcare:

At The Naughty Dog, we understand the importance of preventive healthcare in keeping our dogs happy and healthy. Schedule routine wellness exams with your veterinarian, and stay up-to-date with vaccinations, parasite control, and dental care. Our team can provide guidance on preventive medications and treatments to protect against common illnesses and parasites.

  1. Mental Stimulation and Enrichment:

Dogs thrive on mental stimulation and enrichment, and The Naughty Dog is here to help. Explore our selection of toys designed to keep your pet's mind engaged and prevent boredom. Our team can recommend new activities and provide tips for creating a stimulating environment for your furry friend. All you have to do is reach out on our socials or shoot us an email and we can help out!
