Dog licks paws a lot, does not enjoy doing it. The problem is that he's not getting enough to eat and that seems to be the trigger that makes him do it more. He also tries to get up on things, like shelves and I don't think he would be successful because of his size. I think he just needs a better food supply.

What kind of food do you feed your dog? What is the best way to make a puppy happy?

The only advice I can give is this... if your dog is old enough to not like you, it's old enough to be spayed or neutered. This will prevent it from having puppies. Puppies are the joy of any dog's life, but when they become "puppy dogs", they are much less likely to make friends with people and they are not as likely to enjoy being adopted by a family. Puppies have a lot of energy and need constant stimulation. If a puppy doesn't get what they need, they may develop a bad habit of chewing, biting, or even worse.

If you get a dog in a shelter or through the humane society, there may be a list of problems on the back of the dog's tag. You should check those before adopting. You can always call the shelter and ask about what problems the dog had in the past. Even if you are only considering a dog in a shelter, you should get their health history as well as any behavior problems. You don't know what they have had before. This is your dog, after all.

If you're planning to get a puppy or small dog, you should probably keep it indoors, so it doesn't run around in the cold and wind, and you can clean up after it.

I'm not saying puppies should not be kept outside, but I think they are happiest in an indoor environment. It is really nice to go for a walk with the dog and see them explore and do their thing.

For food, there are many options, and I prefer to feed them the same as my cat (and any other carnivore I own). I find their food to be much more palatable than any other. Some people like dry food. I prefer wet food. I find the wet food they make to be more digestible than their dry, which doesn't help them retn water and doesn't fill them up either. I also prefer the more "traditional" recipe that is more natural for dogs, with a little meat in it than the modern "soup" versions that are all high in fillers. The meat in the traditional recipes comes in a variety of forms. Some are very coarse (chunks) others are very fine. Some have a little fat on them and others are very low fat. Some have a little gravy in them. I do prefer those recipes to the more modern ones, and I think it helps make their food more palatable for my dog.

For dogs who don't eat a lot, I feed them an appropriate amount based on their size. I like to use the chart that comes in a box of commercial food, and just give them a tablespoon of the food that corresponds to their size and age. I use this chart as an estimate because I am not good with measuring. I just eyeball the food, and adjust as necessary. I try to do this when the dog is eating, but if he is eating dry kibble, I will give it to him while he is sleeping. I make sure that he eats this food once a day, no matter what.

A dog can get really, really sick from being fed the wrong diet.

There are also options for feeding the dogs raw food, but this is not something I am familiar with. I just can't see it working with a dog who doesn't like the food I feed them. It is a lot of work, though. I would prefer to have them eating the right kind of food, so they don't develop a bad habit or need to chew and eat things to try and compensate for not getting enough to eat. It would also be a lot less work for me. I am not really sure how to rse a puppy on raw food. I really don't want to take the risk of a puppy developing a bad habit. I just think I would be a lot more comfortable having my dog eat a proper diet and eating a proper diet, than to have them develop a habit of eating the food that I don't like.

You have made me think a lot about my dogs, and how to make them happier and healthier. Thanks for your insights.

Thanks!

I do not own a puppy, but I did buy a small dog from a shelter. So I am not sure how much is appropriate for a puppy. I just keep them indoors, with a little exercise.

I would recommend that you feed them the same food as your cats. I don't know why, but this has worked out great for all my dogs, even the big one. I do add gravy to the wet food if they don't like it, but other than that, they are very happy. I like to go for walks with the dog and they are pretty content. I have always had my dogs indoors, but when the weather is bad, I take them for a walk. They like to be outside.

I can tell you this: as long as they are fed a healthy diet and the weather is warm, they will be fine and healthy. I don't know how old your dog is, but it might be a good idea to keep him indoors until he is at least 3 or 4 months old.
