So we love City Dogs. We love them so much, that we dedicated a blog to them. But what makes a City Dog awesome?
By default, City Dogs live in small spaces (don’t we all wish that wasn’t that case). With small spaces, comes the issues of smell…more specifically, dog smell!! Because us City Dog Owners don’t have the option of putting our dogs in the “utility room”, or back yard, we generally wash and send our dogs to the groomers as soon as Fido starts to smell. We have our top 5 grooming tips for winter available here if you want some quick and easy tips.
There is no way of avoiding other dogs in City Environments. With the increase of dog runs, day care and dog walkers, our City Dogs are around other dogs a lot more than their country counterparts.
Percentage wise, more City Dogs enroll in dog training classes than their country cousins. This doesn’t automatically make them super well trained but it does give us owners a lot of tools in our belt to cope with having dogs in small spaces
While this isn’t true for all dogs, City Dogs are used to being the center of attention and having strangers they meet gush all over them. Dogs in the city are still not the norm, so every dog lover you come across will be sure to say hi to Fido.
Subways, buses, garbage trucks, crazy people, you name it. I bet you a City Dog can handle it. Statistically speaking, City Dogs are more exposed to random and spontaneous situations which make most of them them nearly bomb proof when it comes to most situations.
Of course every dog is unique and different, so if your dog is struggling with any of these areas, it might be time to get a trainer involved and start to make your dog happier. You can try our company City Sit Stay for training and free advice.
