It doesn’t matter if you’ve owned 20 dogs or you’re just starting off with your first one, it doesn’t hurt to learn some more tips and tricks to make you a better dog parent. That’s why we’re loving these TikTok videos from user @thefriendlyvet who works as an ER Veterinarian.

In his most recent clip, which has over 1.1 million views, he mentions 5 things he would never do with his dog. Some of these tips you might already know, but it doesn’t hurt to hear them again. And others might surprise you. Check it out!

Wow! This is all really great information. And the first one right off the bat, dog parks, took us by surprise, especially since so many people bring their dogs there. But it makes sense. You never know what illness your dog may catch.

“We never go to dog parks! Our dog trainer always calls them ‘disease-infested fight clubs,’” commented @ckimsch. Ha! That’s one way to put it! We’ll definitely be taking this vet’s advice on not going to the dog park anymore.

Another TikTok user, @deannasays, wrote, “I did ALL of these, and my pup lived till 18 years of age. I miss him every day, but I know he was healthy, loved, and taken care of!” Wow! That’s absolutely incredible and a great motivation for others to follow these tricks because well, we want our fur babies to live as long as they possibly can!
