    Scheduling a veterinary check-up is the most important step to take when you first bring a new dog home. This ensures that the dog is healthy, up-to-date on vaccinations, and free of any medical issues.

    What is the best age to adopt a puppy?

    • A.

      7 to 8 weeks

    • B.

      6 to 8 weeks

    • C.

      8 to 12 weeks

    • D.

      10 to 12 weeks

    Correct Answer
    C. 8 to 12 weeks
    Explanation
    The best age to adopt a puppy is between 8 to 12 weeks. At this age, puppies have gained some independence from their mother and littermates, but they are still young enough to easily bond with their new owners. They have also had enough time to develop basic social skills and receive initial vaccinations and health check-ups. Adopting a puppy within this age range allows for a smoother transition into their new home and increases the likelihood of a successful and healthy long-term relationship between the puppy and their new family.

    How often do you feed your dog?

    • A.

      1 time a day.

    • B.

      4 times a day.

    • C.

      2 times a day.

    • D.

      3 times a day.

    Correct Answer
    C. 2 times a day.
    Explanation
    Feeding a dog twice a day is generally recommended by veterinarians. This allows for a consistent and balanced diet, as well as preventing the dog from becoming too hungry or overeating. Splitting the meals into two servings also helps with digestion and can prevent stomach issues. Feeding a dog only once a day may lead to hunger and potential behavioral problems, while feeding them more than twice a day may cause them to gain weight. Therefore, feeding a dog two times a day is the best option for their overall health and well-being.

      Dog doors

    • D.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Ensuring you have dog food is crucial as it addresses the immediate and ongoing nutritional needs of your new pet. While a training crate, dog house, and dog doors are also important for training, shelter, and convenience, having the right food is essential to care for your dog's health from the moment it arrives.

    • D.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Honey is safe to feed to dogs because it is a natural sweetener that does not contain any harmful substances. It can be given in small amounts as an occasional treat or added to their food. However, it is important to note that honey should not be given to puppies under one year old or dogs with certain health conditions such as diabetes, as it can affect their blood sugar levels. It is always best to consult with a veterinarian before introducing any new food into a dog's diet.

    Is it safe for a dog to chew on sticks?

    • A.

      No

    • B.

      Yes

    Correct Answer
    A. No
    Explanation
    Chewing on sticks can be unsafe for dogs due to several reasons. Firstly, sticks can splinter and cause injuries to the dog's mouth, throat, or digestive tract. Secondly, some sticks may be toxic or have harmful substances on them, such as pesticides or chemicals. Ingesting these substances can lead to poisoning or other health issues. Additionally, sticks can also pose a choking hazard if a piece breaks off and gets stuck in the dog's throat. Therefore, it is generally recommended to provide dogs with safe and appropriate chew toys instead of sticks.

  • 9. 

    The best place to find a new dog is:

    • A.

      Pet store

    • B.

      From the streets

    • C.

      Shelter

    • D.

      Someone's house

    Correct Answer
    C. Shelter
    Explanation
    A shelter is the best place to find a new dog because it provides a safe and caring environment for animals in need. Shelters often have a variety of dogs available for adoption, allowing potential owners to choose one that fits their preferences and lifestyle. Adopting from a shelter also helps reduce the number of stray and homeless dogs in the community. Additionally, shelters typically provide medical care, vaccinations, and spaying/neutering services for the dogs, ensuring they are healthy and ready to be part of a loving family.

  • 10. 

    Which colors can dogs see best?

    • A.

      Yellow and blue

    • B.

      Red

    • C.

      Green

    • D.

      Purple

    Correct Answer
    A. Yellow and blue
    Explanation
    Dogs have dichromatic vision, meaning they see colors on a limited spectrum compared to humans. They can see shades of blue and yellow more clearly than other colors. This is because their eyes have fewer color receptors, making it difficult for them to perceive red and green hues. Dogs' ability to see blue and yellow is beneficial for activities like hunting, as these colors stand out against natural backgrounds.
