9. USE INTERACTIVE TOYS
Toys that dispense treats get your dog moving and burn calories while they try to work for their reward. Be sure to use treats that will really engage your dog, such as carrots and apples. (MNN)
No mention of poodles. It is all I would own. I love all dogs, but as an owner I perfer a toy poodle. I have had 2 toys and one minature. They don't shed and are very friendly, They are very smart and mine have known everything I say to them. I had a white toy that lived to be 17. The vet I took her to gave her too much of a medication for itchy skin and she passed with in 2 months. My minature poodle got cancer in her nose and I lost her at 17 years old. I now have a toy black poodle. She is 10 years old and very healthy and is very smart and very friendly. She probably will out live me. I love her so much.
In number 4 they say to look at the bag of food for the amount to feed. I looked at my dogs food and his weight and they suggested 7-8 cups a day. I give my dog 3 and he still has a little bit of a weight problem so I don't think that is the best measure. The food companies want to sell Food so they hope you use too much so you can buy more.
