How to Care for Your Dog:
• Do not leave your dog tied to a chain or in a cage. This can cause severe behavior problems. If you do this because he is behaving badly, it will probably make him worse; instead, try giving him a lot of exercise or behavior training. If he barks a lot or seems aggressive when on a chain or in a cage, he is stressed and unhappy. A dog should not be alone most of the time.
• At all times, your dog must have access to shade and water.
• Every night, and whenever it’s cold, your dog must also have bedding and shelter. This can be a dog house with a dog bed, or a box with blankets and a pillow.
• Do not leave your dog outside without shelter if it may rain.
