There are many reasons why it is awesome to own a dog and why you should always keep one around the house. Whenever you come home from a hard day at work, a dog can be a relaxing and enjoyable experience but also time consuming and crazy or as the traditional german saying goes “Da wird ja der Hund in der Pfanne verrückt”. In order to have the best relationship with your dog, you will need to keep it clean and healthy, which requires a lot of maintenance work. Although they are fun to play with during your leisure time, they can be a lot of work to keep up with. Much of the work that needs to be done includes walking your dog, grooming it, bathing it, and feeding him the right kind of pet food.


Traveling With Your Dog

The second best part about having a dog is that they can help you to take a break from life, whether it is to get a away from work, the family, or other important chores that need to be done during the day. They can also be wonderful to take on vacation with you by taking them to the beach or other places that allow you to bring your pets. If you ever do go to the beach, the dog would have a lot of room to run around and get to know other people who love to play with dogs. It is always fun when other people run into your dog; it can be a good way to get to know them. Depending on where you have gone to with your dog, there is a good chance that it will get to meet other people who have brought their dog with them, so that your’s can run around and play together.


Teaching Your Dog Tricks

Another great reason to own a dog is to teach him tricks and to become familiar on how to respond to certain actions, including teaching him to sit, fetch, and spin around in circles. Hopefully, if your dog is talented enough or you have spent enough time teaching it to do certain things, you could take him to a special event where he competes against other dogs. Your dog could participate at events by racing other dogs, jumping over objects, or seeing him perform other types of stunts that show how accurate he is at performing a specific activity.

The best reason to own a dog is to teach it to follow you on your own adventure. Many people want a dog that they can bring with them outside without a leash. But you might have to train your dog to stay within certain areas to keep an eye out for them. Once your dog is disciplined enough to stay around you wherever you go, you can rely on him to run around a certain perimeter. That way you can always be with your dog when you are camping, hiking through the mountains, or having a family picnic.


Feeding and Cherishing Your Dog

Whenever you have just eaten dinner, it is always great to have a dog around to feed him the leftovers. This way you don’t have to worry about food going to waist, and a dog always appreciates it when they don’t have to fill up on dog food all the time. Dogs love to try left over food for a change when they become tired of the same old dog food. Usually it does not matter what you have for lunch or dinner, for dogs love to eat any type of meat and sometimes vegetables, including bacon and french fries.

Having a dog requires a lot of responsibility to keep him happy with toys, room to roam around, and activities to participate in. Once you decide that you would like to get a new dog, you always want to be sure to pick out the right kind. Most people do not want a dog that you can’t train easily. So some of the best dogs to own are golden retrievers, German Shepherds, and other kinds of mixed breeds that you can teach to stay within your area and be friendly to other people. Even if you decide to get a guard dog, they are great to know when to be nice to people, when there is trouble, and how to protect his loved ones.
