What shots do dogs need


What shots do dogs need to see to live a long and happy life? Does a good dog need a high-powered gun, or is a low-powered gun sufficient?

To find out, I headed to the mountns outside Tucson, Arizona. It was September, the peak of the dog-hunting season in the Southwest, and it was time to run through my checklist.

Here are the rules, culled from dog behavior experts and confirmed in my own experience:

Don’t get into the water

Keep dogs away from open water, like ponds or streams. This is a safety measure and, because water is cold and may cause problems like frostbite, a precaution for any breed that spends a lot of time outside.

Don’t use live bt

Don’t use dead bt, either. The dogs can smell the bt in the water.

Don’t leave dogs in a crate

In the crate, the dogs can’t see what’s going on around them and they can’t be heard by their masters. They don’t get enough mental exercise. And if you put them in there too long, they can start to have breathing problems.

In my day job, I’m a behavioral researcher and a veterinarian at the University of Arizona. I know that dogs can’t hold their breath for very long, so I’d never leave a dog alone in a crate for any length of time.

Don’t leave dogs outside in the cold

In the winter, dogs should be kept inside where they can get shelter and bedding and keep warm.

The exception to this rule is a young, healthy dog that you plan to breed. In that case, keep your dog outdoors in a climate-controlled, enclosed run.

Keep dogs on a leash when they’re out

Keeping a dog on a leash is the best way to help your dog to get some mental exercise. And it can be fun, too. Dogs enjoy going for walks. But it can be frustrating if they get into trouble.

When a dog gets into a problem, the best way to help it is to walk away from it and let it calm down on its own.

Don’t chase dogs

Never chase dogs. This is not only dangerous, it is cruel. Most dogs don’t like it. If they’re afrd, they might run. If they’re aggressive, they might fight back. It is far better to stand still, let them come to you, and be friends.

Don’t let dogs out of your sight

Don’t leave your dog alone. Dogs are curious and they’ll go exploring if you’re not looking out for them. If you don’t want them to go outside, close the door. If you don’t want them to get out, keep the gate shut.

Don’t leave dogs in a strange house

Don’t let dogs stay overnight in a strange house. Some dogs may get into trouble if they’re in a strange place and not familiar with it. Some breeds — like the German shepherd, for example — are very territorial. Some breeds — like the German shepherd, for example — are very territorial.

Never leave dogs unattended in a car

If a dog is left alone in a car, it can die of heatstroke. And if a dog is left alone in the cold, it can die of cold exposure. These are life-threatening situations. Dogs are vulnerable. Don’t let them be left in a car, on a trn, or in the cold.

Never leave dogs alone in a strange home

Never leave dogs alone in a strange home. If you’re not going to be home to watch them, hire a dog-sitter or find a friend with a dog that’s experienced with dog-sitting.

This is not a foolproof list. It is based on my own experience and that of the people who have worked with me. As any behavioral researcher will tell you, every situation has exceptions and every dog is different. But it is the best guideline I know of for keeping your dog safe.

It will help them to live a long and happy life.

And it will help them to live a long and happy life.

My books

My first book, “The Art of Dog Trning,” was published in 2007. It sold almost half a million copies. Since then, I’ve written eight more books, including two on the art of dog trning: “The Complete Guide to Dog Trning,” a companion to “The Art of Dog Trning,” and “The Good Dog,” which is a guide to dog trning for dog owners.

As you’ll see from the list above, I’m a dog person.

I’ve spent my entire career with dogs — as a professional animal behaviorist, a dog show judge, a breeder, and a dog trner. I have hundreds of articles and columns in dog magazines and newspapers. I’ve worked on documentaries about dog health and behavior. I’ve studied dog
