Owners who welcome a dog for the first time are likely to be anxious and worried.
From puppies to adults to seniors, dogs go through various stages of growth, and there are times when they need care and attention.
However, in modern times, with the spread of SNS, we have become a convenient world where we can easily find out expert opinions.
One of the things we, as owners, can do for our dogs who cannot speak is to deepen our knowledge.
Here, we have summarized four SNS accounts that dog owners should check out .
I would like to introduce an Instagram account that many pet owners refer to.
At the end, we also have an account that summarizes spots where you can go out with your pet.
Please try searching in your area.
1. Hideki Matsumoto 🐶 Matsumoto-kun from “Pochitama”.
The first account I would like to introduce is the account of Hideki Matsumoto, the owner of Masaharu, an 11-year-old Labrador retriever.
From the perspective of a dog trainer, Mr. Matsumoto provides information on a wide range of topics including training, diseases, and diet.
Masaharu-kun is a large dog, but the knowledge Mr. Matsumoto will teach us will be useful to all dog owners who care about the happiness of their dogs, regardless of the breed.
Mr. Matsumoto is also qualified as a disaster prevention specialist who is involved in support activities for disaster-stricken areas during disasters, and in the past, he was asked to give a lecture by Fukushima Prefecture and gave a seminar on ``evacuation with pets.''
Mr. Matsumoto, a dog trainer and disaster prevention officer, is very reassuring.
Mr. Matsumoto's YouTube channel ``Matsumoto Hideki Co., Ltd.'' has more detailed videos about disaster prevention for pets.
On this channel, questions sent in by viewers via chat will be answered on the spot.

The second is animal dermatology and otology.
Dr. Iyori, a veterinary dermatologist who works at a circus animal hospital, explains about animal diseases and skin care methods.
It will be especially useful for owners of dogs with dermatological or otological problems, or for owners who want to learn about proper skin care.
Another account that owners would like to see is an animal dentistry account by Dr. Hiratsuka, also the director of Circus Animal Hospital .
Currently, it is said that nearly 80% of dogs over the age of 3 have periodontal disease.
Periodontal disease is dangerous as it progresses, so be careful.
In the future, he plans to create an account called Animal Internal Medicine.
It may be safe to follow them all at once.
3.MogMog｜Additive-free dog homemade rice and treat shop
Next is the account of a shop called "mogmog - dog enzyme rice and snacks".
The shop was started by a parent and son who owned a dog with liver problems, and each item is handmade and shipped one by one after an order is placed, and they are very particular about where they come from and how they are grown.
The person running the shop utilizes his qualifications as a holistic care (care that brings out natural healing power) counselors to develop a community where people can learn practical dietary therapy, so students can learn about home-cooked meals. If you would like to do so, please take a look.
On Instagram, she introduces foods designed for the health of dogs, as well as posts about prevention and care for diseases, mainly those related to the liver and kidneys.
Food and snacks are great, but the reel videos that have been uploaded recently are really thought-provoking, so I'd like to introduce you to a video that has currently been viewed 1.44 million times.
The last one is Petcy, which lists spots where you can go out with your pet.
This page introduces pet-friendly cafes, dog runs, and accommodations.
Just by looking at the posts, you can check not only access and business hours, but also whether there is a pet food menu and whether a pet cuddle or bag is required.
What's more, if you follow Petcy's account, there are spots with great benefits, such as free first-time usage fees.
It's a good idea to pick up and save places you want to go on a daily basis, not only for going out on your day off, but also for your dog's birthday, etc.
These are the ``SNS accounts that dog owners should check out''.
- Hideki Matsumoto 🐶 Matsumoto-kun from “Pochitama”.
- Animal dermatology/otology
- MogMog｜Additive-free dog homemade rice and treat shop
It's really helpful to have experts in various fields sharing useful information. Be sure to check out the accounts we introduced this time!
I would be happy if I could help as many owners as possible.
