However, there is a rule to control both the quantity and quality of the food . Another point to note is that the feeding of the 'leftovers' from the owners what they eat is not adequate, nor is eating meat and bone exclusively, since the dog needs a diet more varied.

In recent times is frequent recourse to the feed to feed the pet. They are classified according to the different races and age, and contain all the elements so that the animal is well fed. It is best to be the veterinarian showing the feed that we give the animal and, if necessary, supplement the diet with some other food .

On the other hand, should know that they should feed the dog three times a day , if a puppy , and twice daily to dogs adults . It is also advisable to perform this task always at the same times, so that the animal acquired the habit. Also, never be given no food outside these hours so they do not acquire the habit of being constantly calling.

One important difference is that stray dogs have a " residential area "instead of a territory. Area is called the area home to a dog usually runs free. For example, the ancestor of the dog, wolf, usually runs several miles a day. Much of this tour is done in the area of residence, so this area can have an area of several square kilometers .

The territory is usually a small area within the residence to which the wolf actively defends the intrusion of strangers. A dog living in a house can take it or part of it as a territory and defend it from strangers . As a result, a dog whose owner leave an open road access can attack a person who passes by. The stray dog itself usually does not have a territory which is not usually show territorial aggression with people who are on the street.

Another important difference with respect to the family dog is the mutt itself has to work for a living . Spends much of his busy day, trying to get food, to seek protection against a bleak climate and should be protected from the dangers of living on the street. This reality does not seek to survive and have a social status high relative to the local people and therefore the possibilities of expressing aggression are much less hierarchical.

The only situation in which the stray dog itself, especially if you are in a pack, may reveal important is that aggressiveness associated with predatory aggression , a fact that often occurs in rural areas.

Partially Street Dog

The behavior of a stray dog in general part tends to be more like the dog that lives in a house that the stray dog itself. The dog does not need street partially work for a living, that is, their behavior usually is not related to the livelihood and this is what fundamentally different dog who lives permanently in the street.

Some of these dogs have owners and live in houses but they are released by their owners during the day to roam freely. At other times do not necessarily have a formal owner but are fed by a particular person and dogs are putting down roots in the driveway. Unlike the actual stray dog, stray dogs often partially establish a territory and can defend it from intruders.
