Dog need handling and housing

Table of Contents


Place one hand under the dog’s chest and support the dog’s hind legs and rump with your other hand or forearm when carrying a puppy or small dog. Never try to lift or grab your small dog or puppy by the forelegs, tail, or neck. If you must lift a large dog, do so from the bottom, holding the dog’s chest in one arm and the tail in the other.


Your pet needs a warm, peaceful resting place that is off the floor, out of the way of any draughts. It’s best to use a dog bed or training crate and place a fresh blanket or pillow inside. Regularly wash the dog’s bedding. If your dog will be spending a lot of time outside, make sure she has access to cool water and shade in the summer and a warm, dry shelter in the winter.
