February is Responsible Pet Owner Month. This is the month that pet owners are urged to get their pets spayed and neutered. The Humane Society of the United States estimates that six to eight million cats and dogs end up in animal shelters every year.  Here are a few tips… Train your dog; this is extremely important. The Number One reason for dogs ending up in shelters is behavior problems. By training and socializing your dog you can greatly reduce the chances of your dog ever getting lost or ending up in a shelter. Feed your pet a well-balanced and nutritious diet. Clean up after your dog. Groom your dog on a regular pet plenty of exercise and feed a proper diet to protect against various diseases. Let your dog live in the house with you. You need to provide shelter for your dog. Make sure your pet has up-to-date identification tags on his collar.
