September 19, 2014 Grooming Hip Houndz

Many first time dog owners may be unsure of what food to feed, what behavior signs to watch out for, as well as some common pet care tips. Below are four top tips for first time Tampa dog owners.

Daycare: Proper amounts of exercise are an important factor in dog care to keep dogs healthy and happy. Many Tampa pet parents work long hours or simply do not have enough time to give their puppies or young active dogs enough exercise the need on a daily basis. The great thing about Tampa is that there are several different types of doggie daycares available for your dog to go to while you are away.

Grooming: Another important aspect of dog care is daily grooming. Whether your dog or cat has long-hair or short-hair, grooming is important to keep your pet happy and feeling good. Our groomers work with first time pet owners to help determine the proper haircut style.

Pet Sitting: If you have to leave for a few days for work or vacation, and need an in-home pet sitter, make sure that the sitter you use understands proper dog care. Our own Tampa Pet sitters have knowledgeable staff that knows and understands dogs. At Hip Houndz, our staff is trained and knows how to administer eye, ear, and nose medications, as well as, give oral medications.

Preventative Dog Care: First time dog owners should notice any changes in their dog’s behavior and appearance. Training may help with certain changes in behavior, such as aggression or anxiety. If you notice any changes in energy levels, appetite decreases, hair loss, weight gain or bumps, or lumps, it is best to visit your Tampa Veterinarian to see what could be the cause.
