Having a dog can be one of the best experiences in life. We get so attached to our little fuzzy pet, they become a member of the family. People like to imagine that their dog is smarter and more adorable than just about everyone else’s dog—they’re sort of like children in that way—but in reality, there are plenty of things all of these four-legged creatures have in common.

When you get right down to it, there are some aspects of dog ownership that are universal across the board. So, if you’ve ever owned one, these will look familiar. And if you haven’t, well, pay attention…
