Ensuring a good environment for your dog

If you don’t allow your dog lots of time in a variety of different environments all sorts of issues can arise later on depending on the dog. If you live in a rural area for the first year or two of the dog's life and then move to a city setting you can’t expect your dog to just be calm and relaxed.
