5 Things Dogs Just Can’t Resist

May 15, 2018
Dogs are wonderful pets: they’re not only lovable, loyal, and playful, they’re also absolutely hilarious. One thing that makes Fido super cute is his fascination for certain things. Just like people, our canine pals have their own likes and dislikes. In this article from Fairfield Animal Hospital, your Cy-Fair animal clinic, a vet lists some things our furry companions just can’t refuse.


If there’s one thing that Man’s Best Friend is extremely enthusiastic about, it’s food. The sound of a cheese wrapper opening can wake Fido from a dead sleep in milliseconds! Your pup will also pay close attention whenever you are cooking, serving food, and/or eating, and will likely waste no time in snapping up anything that falls to the ground. Treats are fine, but don’t go overboard!

Sneaking Onto The Couch

This is another common one. Even pooches that know full well they aren’t supposed to be on the sofa can’t help jumping up for a comfy nap when their humans aren’t looking!

Chasing Squirrels

Does your canine buddy lunge after any squirrel or cat that crosses his path? Even the sweetest dogs often can’t resist squirrel chasing! (Training tip: if Fido pulls on the leash, try changing directions every time he yanks on it.)

Car Rides

This is one area where Fluffy and Fido couldn’t disagree more. As far as kitties are concerned, automobiles are evil robots hurtling them toward uncertain doom. Fido, on the other hand, thinks car rides are the best thing ever. However, even though your furry buddy may love sticking his head out the window, he’s much safer traveling in a crate.


Dogs learn about their surroundings in large part through smell. That cute nose is very sensitive, and can pick up even the faintest traces of scent. Therefore, going to a new place can be very exciting for Man’s Best Friend. Needless to say, if you leave your gate open, your pooch may not hesitate to take off for a little doggy adventure. Indulge Fido by taking him somewhere new every now and then, so he can get a change of scenery and conquer some new patches of grass. Training your pet to come when called is also important. Please call us here at Fairfield Animal Hospital, your Cy-Fair vet clinic, if ever we can be of assistance. We’re always happy to help!
