When your dog is well behaved and happy, you'll have a great relationship. When your dog isn't happy, you'll find your pillows torn into bits of fluff. You're not the only owner who wants to learn how to deal with their dog, so we've collected a bunch of advice from other owners who have been through it all before.

While hugging your dog will make both of you feel great, refrain from kissing him. While those sloppy kisses may be cute, be aware that your dog's mouth is apt to be crawling with germs and bacteria. They eat garbage or poop and even sniff other dog's butts. Many people believe that dogs' mouths do not have as much germs as humans' mouths. It simply is not true.

Never hit your dog. There are better ways to train a dog without having to resort to violence. The best way to train a dog is to reinforce positive behaviors with treats and attention. Negative behavior should be handled with a stern and disapproving voice as opposed to striking the animal.

Take your dog to the vet regularly. This may seem like an added expense that you don't need, but when you take your dog to the veterinarian, he can screen your dog for diseases and make sure he is in the best of health. This of course prevents problems down the road.

Always have your dog on a leash when he's off your property. Something could distract him, like a squirrel or a cat, causing him to leave your side. You are responsible for anything your dog does, as well as for his safety.

Whether your dog is fabulous or frustrating, remember that it is how you treat them which gives you the outcome you receive. You have to teach them right from wrong, give them entertainment and keep them healthy. It is no simple task! There are answers out there, including in this article, so put your new knowledge to work.
