Do you like dogs? OK, prove it.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Chocolate is lethal to dogs.

    If a dog has even a tiny bit of chocolate you should call the vet ASAP. The risk of poisoning is higher if the dog is small and/or the chocolate dark. As far as carrots, lettuce, and salmon go, dogs love them and it's OK for them to eat these things in moderation.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's alright to occasionally give your dog peanut butter as a treat.

    Remember to look for the most natural option without any added salt or sugar. On the other hand, onions, raisins, and coffee are harmful to our four-legged friends.

  3. IF YOU WANT A DOG, YOU'RE ENCOURAGED TO...

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    The ideal thing is to ADOPT one, not to buy one and increase the number of abandoned dogs out there.

    There are millions of doggies of all ages, breeds, and sizes who have been abandoned or rescued and cry every night waiting for you to take them home. They'll be forever thankful and you'll feel forever full of love.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    You DO have to brush dogs' little teeth (and if you do it daily, it's so much better).

    But beware: You should never use toothpaste intended for humans on your furry friend. There are special toothpastes with specific ingredients meant just for dogs.

  5. DOG CRATES ARE BEST FOR...

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Crates are great for dog training!

    For puppies, if you need them to be in a safe place and you can't keep your eyes on them and/or you're teaching them basic rules of how to behave at home, you can use special dog crates. But you shouldn't leave them in these crates for more than five hours. They should feel comfortable in it and, above all, you should never use them as a punishment or as a way to leave them alone for hours on end.

  6. WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING IS FALSE?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    An adult dog sleeps between 12 and 14 hours a day.

    Puppies must get between 18 and 20 hours of sleep. Even though there is a lot of variation from breed to breed, 5 to 8 hours a day is generally not a sufficient resting time for a dog.

  7. ''DOGS CAN DREAM''

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Just like humans, dogs also dream.

    This is why sometimes when they are sound asleep you can see them moving and making weird (and adorable) noises. Fun fact: You should know that they are probably dreaming of playing with you (SO CUTE).
