The behaviour of a dog depends on its ages, type or breed and past experience. The sense of normal and healthy behavior remains individual. But in general, the majority of dogs enjoy playing with other dogs or other animals. They also like the company of their masters and are playful with toys. Once you notice a change in its behavior, you should take its health and welfare into account because the changes suggest that everything is no more OK.

In order to stabilize your dog’s behavior, invent some activities for it in order to prevent the boredom and the stress. This is the main investment you have to make for it in order to give it its basic Animal Welfare.
For that, make sure to let it have easy access to its toys and objects of play even if you cannot supervise it. It should also be able to rest in calm at its own place whenever it wants to. Make sure it can rest without any constraints and remember that older animals and puppies need more rest.
After, you should also familiarize your dog with a regular activity such as walk and outside plays. It is there that you will notice more its behavior. So, if a change emerges, you will be aware of it easier and you can take it to the veterinarian in order to cope with the issue.
Otherwise, in order to get a normal and well-raised dog, you should invest on its early education and training. The habits should be implemented from a very young age. In order to get the better from the training, use positive reward and never lie on the harsh and painful methods.
The basic needs of dogs

The exercise, a real institution
For a sane lifestyle, the dog regularly needs to do some exercises. These last includes the walk and the run. But you should supervise it well, especially if you get it into the public places such as forests, nature reserves, country parks or parks and green spaces.
In principles, the frequency and amount of your dog’s exercises depend on the its health, age and breed. This is an important point you should take into account while choosing the puppy. Some breed requires intense exercises every day.
Otherwise, if your dog happens to foul in some public place, it’s your responsibility to clean its mess. For every outside walk, don’t forget to bring a poop scoop which is a kind of plastic shovel. Carry also a bag so that you hand will remain clean while carrying the mess to a bin.
If you fail to that rule and don’t clean the mess of your dog, you may be punished and will be obliged to pay a fine. In some countries such as North Ireland, if you fail to pay the fine, you can be held in court for allowing dog fouling.
