“My life has been more cheerful, I feel in a better mood, it helps me to relax and feel good, and also helps me to get rid of stress,” a housewife said of owning a dog.

Margarita Lopez, a housewife, mother of two children, and a dog owner, shares her experience having a 7-week-old Schnauzer.

Lopez explained why she wanted a pet.

“The reason we wanted to get a pet was to have some company when my kids are at school and because I like animals, dogs specifically, and because it’s admirable to have a pet at home,” Lopez said 

She described how she deals with the dogs’ behavior.

“I handle his behavior in different ways, for example, when he misbehaves, I speak loudly and scold him, and when he behaves well, I reward him with a treat,” Lopez said.

Lopez explained how she named the dog and why.

My life has been more cheerful, I feel in a better mood, it helps me to relax and feel good, and also helps me to get rid of stress.”

“We decided to name our dog Rudy, the name came from the movie “Rudy”, because the character (Rudy) is a fierce, brave, and strong person like the dog, what amazed me was that he adapted to that name really quick,” Lopez said

She said the dog has been good for her family.

“It has not affected it negatively, on the other hand, it has helped us to feel better, to laugh more, and to be in a better mood,” Lopez said.

Lopez explained what the dog is afraid of.

“The puppy right now, being a little one, is afraid of any unknown sound, so when we go outside for a walk the noise of the cars that pass by scaring him, and the noise of fireworks also give him a scare. He is also afraid of being alone, when we go he starts crying because he doesn’t want us to leave.”Lopez said

She said she makes sure to take of things at her house.

“I raise everything that falls on the floor so he can not eat it and choke, I put up all the electrical cables up so he can’t chew them,” Lopez said

She explained what would she do if the dog had a medical emergency.

“I try to give first aid (CPR) or if he gets injured l check him and if I see that he doesn’t improve I call the vet to come check the dog at my house, and if he says its something urgent, I’ll immediately take him to the vet,” Lopez said.
