Dog in horse stable: safety rules

Before you take your dog into the stables, he should have got to know horses a few times with a certain safety distance - for example, by occasionally walking with them past a horse pasture. It is important that you can assess how your loyal friend reacts when you see horses. Under no circumstances should he bark at them or run after them. Horses are refugees and quickly scare. In addition, the dog - also for his own safety for love - should always have a certain distance from other horses. Use your commands to ensure that he does not come closer than two meters to the large ungulates.

Tips on the behavior of the four-legged friend

Jumping on other stall visitors, stealing feed, digging holes or doing business in the stall: A dog should not get used to these bad habits at all. You prevent them with a good basic education, so that the dog can let off steam before going to the barn to play or go for a walk, and that you praise your four-legged friend when he is good. Carefully teach your pet where to start he may stay in the stable and where not and where certain rules apply - for example at the riding arena.
