Hello again, I’m here to talk about dogs today.
Lots of you probably have dogs so I hope I’ve got your full attention. To start, can you remember what I told you last time regarding what ALL pets need? Good! For those that need a reminder, it’s food and water, a good home, the right sort of company, to behave normally and to be healthy. Humans need all of that too and our pets are no different!
All shapes and sizes
So let’s talk specifically about dogs. They really do come in all shapes and sizes – from dinky Chihuahua’s to great big St Bernard’s. But they all started off as wolves and 15,000 years ago we started to keep them as pets!
- Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and great hearing – some of the sounds they can detect are up to four times quieter than we can hear!
- Like us, dogs are omnivores – this means that they eat both meat and plants.
- Dogs are really very intelligent and can understand certain words. Have you heard about clever border collie, Rico? He learned the names of 200 toys and was able to fetch the correct one when asked to!
So, if you have a dog, or are thinking of getting one, have a good look through the pet care download attached below.
Make sure you come back in a couple of weeks for my hamster pet care tips!
