This sounds simple but can more complicated than you think!
Socialize your dog from a young age. A dog that does well around other animals is much more welcomed into an environment than one that has been sheltered or not allowed to get to know other animals.
Be sure to feed your dog a quality dog food. It is worth the investment. This will not only provide them with better health overall (just like what we humans eat affects our health) but will benefit their skin/coat. ensure their gastrointestinal tract is healthy and could possibly provide them with a longer life! Who doesn't want that?
