What Dogs Do Care About

Not long ago, I published a post titled ‘What Dogs Don’t Care About’.

I thought it was now time to write about the things they do care about.

Dogs do care…

If you don’t give them their dinner

If you don’t leave them fresh water to drink

If they don’t have any toys to play with

If you make too much fuss of another dog

If you make too much fuss of a cat

If you make too much fuss of a baby

If you read a book or magazine and ignore them

If you don’t take them out for a good walk

If you leave them alone in the house for too long

If you shout at them for being in the way when they don’t know they are in the way

If you leave them with someone else and go on holiday

If you break their routine

If you forget to give them a treat or biscuit at the usual time

If you bring a new dog into the house to live

If you forget they are outside and leave them there for too long

If you tell them off for barking at the postman or delivery courier

If you forget to stroke them and cuddle them

If you shut them in another room when you have company

If one of your visitors doesn’t like dogs

If you have stroked another dog and they can smell it on you

If you eat something nice in front of them and don’t give them even a tiny bit

In many ways, dogs are just like us, especially us as children.
If you ever intend getting a dog, please remember what they care about.

  1. I can only disagree on one point which you are looking at from a human hygiene standpoint . We must remember dogs are not concerned with hygiene or sexual morality, they will mate in a public street or on a visitors leg. They will drink from a muddy puddle and eat unmentionable things.
    That’s why I’m so surprised to see scrupulous old ladies kissing dogs , but it probably strengthens their immune systems .
