24 Universal Rules All Dog Owners Must Follow

Dogs are all that is pure and precious in this world.

You know that a dog will bring you nothing but positive energy if you treat it right. That is why it is important to treat your furry friend like a member of the family. I think anyone can agree that your dog will love you more than you. And matter how much you care for your furry companion, they would not even hesitate to give up their lives for you. Dogs are selfless and if you want to know what unconditional love is like, adopt a dog. Humans are bound to betray you or leave you intentionally or unintentionally sooner or later, but your dog will stay with you till their last breath. We have even heard stories of dogs that sit on their owners’ graves even after they pass away.

However, if you adopt a dog, there are some rules that all dog owners must follow. These are necessary and may even happen unintentionally. Scroll down below to read the super important universal rules:

1. You have to compliment your dog’s stick if it finds one no matter what it looks like. Big or small, just compliment it. No questions asked about where he got it from.

2. Your dog must try glasses a million times at home whenever you see a pair around.

I did not make up these rules. These rules have to be followed by every dog parent or they aren’t really a dog parent. Don’t you see how fun life is when you have a dog? If you don’t have one, do yourself a favor and adopt one.

13. No dog should ever have eye goop whether their parent cleans it or they clean it themselves.

14. When your dog yawns, you yawn too. No excuses.
