My dog slips while walking on floor, please help?

Hi to all, I????m hvng a dobberman and he his 03months old. At the moment I????m feeding mixture of pedigree (weaving) and royal canin to him. On top of that am giving him Caldipet too. My biggest prob is the floor in my home is quite slippery bcoz of the tiles and at sometimes when he runs on the floor he slips n doesn????t get much grip on it. But usually I used to tie him since walking on that type of floor is not gud for him. However I wl take him for a walk twice in a day for 20min. Is that okay for him or will there be any drawback and will that effect his legs in near future ?? Appreciate if anyone cud suggest me a best solution

Don't tie him just because of that..If you are taking him for enough walks that will not cause him any future harms. He slips mostly because such a floor is new to him and he is too young at the moment. Just tire him enough with enough exercises so that he is not too agitated while at home.

You're better off walking your puppy 3 times a day for 10 min each time. He is still very young, and can tire easily.
As for him slipping, it's normal on tile floors. My full grown doberman still slipps on my floors.

You're better off feeding him only royal canin. Pedigree is terrible. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Caldipet is a calcium suppliment correct? If so, stop giving him it. The kibble contains enough calcium for a growing puppy. Giving him too much can greatly destroy his bone structure.

You should only be giving Caldipet if you are feeding a home cooked diet.

Yes caldipet is a calcium suppliment and my vet dr too suggested to give it so that the bones for the higher breed will get strong enough..!! do u think giving royal canin & caldipet will be overdosage to him ?? Frm next month i wl start gradually to give him home food since right away a bit afraid.

yeah well..tying is bad..as for the pee problem..do what pennypup suggested..you only have to take him out this much till he is a pup..once he's grown up and gets used to doing his business outside he will be fine..then walking him 2 times a day will be enough..you can also leave him in your garden(if you have one) few times during the day so that he can relieve himself?

Calcium suppliments are fine to give when feeding a home cooked meal. But giving them when a puppy is on kibble can do much more harm than good. The kibble contains enough calcium and anything you give additionally is too much!

Your dog could have deformed bones or even become lame. Stop the calcium if you want a healthy happy puppy.

also what are the steps to avoid him not to urinate at home...usually when i tie him he doesnt do...only when i remove the chain and make him allow to roam around the home he does it...! One f my friend suggested to use NEWSPAPER TRICK but that doesnt work out...Is this bcoz he his too young ?? I dont know

yes!! it affects him emotionally!! they get frustated.. instead of letting him free to roam around the neighborhood ..lock ur house and provide ur and his own house to let him roam!!you know ..once he gets used to the schedule..walking and peeing outside..ou will have no probs at all!
