    • D.

    Explanation
    The given answer "your responsibility" implies that owning a dog comes with the obligation to take care of it. This includes providing food, shelter, exercise, medical care, and attention. As a pet owner, it is your duty to ensure the well-being and happiness of your dog. Owning a dog is not just about having a playful companion, but also about being responsible for its overall welfare.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Your trying to teach your dog to lay down.....what do you do?

    • A.

      Make motions with your hands and give out treats

    • B.

      Yell at your dog to focus

    • C.

      Use a toy as a reward

    • D.

      Slap the dog if he gets it wrong

    Correct Answer
    A. Make motions with your hands and give out treats
    Explanation
    To teach a dog to lay down, it is best to use positive reinforcement techniques. Making motions with your hands can be used as a visual cue for the dog to understand the desired behavior. Giving out treats as rewards reinforces the behavior, making the dog more likely to repeat it. This positive approach helps to create a positive association with the desired action and encourages the dog to learn and obey commands willingly. Yelling or slapping the dog can cause fear and anxiety, which is not an effective or humane way to train a dog.

  • 3. 

    Your dog will not stop barking when at the fence when someone walks by....what do you do?

    • A.

      Yell at the dog until your head hurts

    • B.

      Pick up the dog and don't let it outside

    • C.

      Use a shock collar or electric fence

    • D.

      Teach the dog to come and be quiet on demand

    Correct Answer
    D. Teach the dog to come and be quiet on demand
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to teach the dog to come and be quiet on demand. Yelling at the dog or using a shock collar may temporarily stop the barking, but it does not address the underlying issue and may cause fear or aggression in the dog. Picking up the dog and not letting it outside does not solve the problem and restricts the dog's freedom. Teaching the dog to come and be quiet on demand is a positive and effective way to address the barking behavior and promote better communication and obedience.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Your dog is a master at escaping the yard.....what do you do?

    • A.

      Fill in the holes

    • B.

      Put up an electric fence or use a shock collar

    • C.

      Put a sandbox in the yard and teach the dog to dig in that rather than digging to get out of the fence

    • D.

      Let the dog escape and chase him down every day

    Correct Answer
    C. Put a sandbox in the yard and teach the dog to dig in that rather than digging to get out of the fence
    Explanation
    This option addresses the underlying behavior by redirecting the dog's natural instinct to dig in a more appropriate and controlled manner. By providing a designated area for digging (such as a sandbox) and training the dog to use it, you can satisfy their need to dig while preventing them from escaping the yard. This approach promotes positive behavior modification and allows the dog to engage in a natural behavior without causing harm or stress. Options such as using electric fences or shock collars can be potentially harmful and may not address the root cause of the behavior. Chasing the dog down every day is not a sustainable or effective solution to the problem.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Your dog must always be leashed.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the dog must always be leashed, which is not necessarily true. While it is important to leash a dog in certain situations, such as in public places or around unfamiliar people, it is not always required. There may be situations, such as in a securely fenced yard or designated off-leash areas, where a dog can be allowed to roam freely without a leash. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

  • 6. 

    Shock and choke collars are effective and safe to use.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement that shock and choke collars are effective and safe to use is false. These types of collars use aversive techniques to control or correct a dog's behavior, which can cause pain, fear, and anxiety. They have been criticized by many experts and organizations for their potential harm to dogs and their negative impact on their well-being. Positive reinforcement methods, such as reward-based training, are generally considered to be more effective and humane alternatives to these aversive tools.

    Walking your dog twice every day is good for it.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Walking your dog twice every day is good for it because it provides physical exercise and mental stimulation. Regular walks help to maintain a healthy weight, strengthen muscles, and improve cardiovascular health. Additionally, walking allows dogs to explore their surroundings, which can prevent boredom and destructive behaviors. It also provides an opportunity for socialization with other dogs and people, promoting better behavior and reducing anxiety. Overall, regular walks contribute to a happy and healthy dog.

    Overfeeding your dog won't hurt him.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Overfeeding a dog can have negative consequences on their health. It can lead to obesity, which increases the risk of various health issues such as diabetes, joint problems, and heart disease. Additionally, overfeeding can cause digestive problems and discomfort for the dog. Therefore, it is important to provide dogs with a balanced diet and appropriate portion sizes to maintain their overall health and well-being.

    You must go to VET if your dog gets sick.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If your dog gets sick, it is necessary to take them to a veterinarian (VET) for proper medical care and treatment. Veterinarians are trained professionals who specialize in animal health and can provide the necessary expertise and resources to diagnose and treat your dog's illness. Ignoring or neglecting a sick dog's condition can lead to further complications and potentially worsen their health. Therefore, it is important to seek professional help from a vet when your dog is sick.

    What should you not let happen?

    • A.

      You shouldn't give your dog water.

    • B.

      You shouldn't let your dog fight with stray dogs.

    • C.

      You shouldn't play with your dog.

    • D.

      All of these

    Correct Answer
    B. You shouldn't let your dog fight with stray dogs.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "You shouldn't let your dog fight with stray dogs." This is because allowing your dog to engage in fights with stray dogs can be dangerous and lead to injuries or the transmission of diseases. It is important to keep your dog safe and prevent any potential harm by avoiding such confrontations.
