Daily Dog's Health Check

Dog’s are a different species and don’t touch, hold and hug as we do so we need to get them used to being handled from an early age and maintain this on a daily basis throughout a dog’s life.  It’s important to go at a dog’s pace and not force them to be handled if they don’t like it; go slowly and gently until your dog is happy to be touched all over.
 
A dog that is happy to be handled will make a better patient at the vets, when they need to be examined and it helps you to really know the condition of your dog so you understand when things are not right.
