SPAY & NEUTER
IT'S THE LAW!
All pets living in the city of Dallas are required to be spayed/neutered. This protects your pet's health and helps control the extreme overpopulation of cats and dogs.
EXERCISE & GAMES
Dogs are very smart and have lots of energy. Being left alone a lot, without anything to do, can make them bored and anxious which can result in barking, pacing, destruction, or aggression.
SOCIAL & LOVE
Most dogs are social. Some are very social and need that connection, just like people do. Isolating a dog without socialization may make them anxious, depressed, or insane.
SENSE OF SMELL
A DOG'S NOSE IS VERY POWERFUL.
The most powerful sense for dogs. Leash walks around your neighborhood, sniffing the sniffs satisfies their innate need for scent stimulation. This is essential mental exercise for your dog.
ONE MOSQUITO BITE. HELP THEM.
Heartworm is not contagious from animal to animal. Dogs contract heartworm from a mosquito bite. This will cause sickness, pain, and death. A monthly preventative protects your dog.
