When it comes to making decisions for my own dog Hunter, I do it from a place of love, understanding, respect and knowledge. I do extensive research on topics like nutrition, health care, training, socialization and proper exercise in order to continuously make good decisions on his behalf. Since he doesn't get to decide which food to eat on his own, it is my job to determine what he is biologically designed to eat and what kind of food he thrives on. I did the research, got the hands on experience and watched him flourish on my choice of a raw food diet.
Health care can be a touchy subject for many dog lovers, but with research and your veterinarian's advice you can determine the best health care routine for your pet. Learn all you can and make your own decisions based on the opinions you form from your research and experiences, and do not let your veterinarian or any sole individual tell you how to do things. In my experience, learning from a variety of sources and forming your own opinion is the path to success in decision making.
Learn about holistic medicine and natural, alternative forms of treatment. Consider a minimal vaccine schedule, and using all natural parasite protection. Think about nutrition and the ingredients you are feeding your dog, and don't feed them something you wouldn't eat yourself. Learn about the intricate language of dogs and why they do the things they do so that you can better communicate with them and understand them.
"My goal in life is to be the person my dog thinks I am."
