2.Dogs eat grass only if they’re sick?.-
 Dogs will sometimes eat grass if they aren’t feeling well to induce vomiting. However, more often than not, dogs just like to eat grass. Dog ancestors used to feed on grass which is likely where their taste for greens came from.

Saying that a 1 year old dog is 7 in dog years doesn't make sense when you consider that dogs can reproduce well before one year of age.

5.Wagging tail is a sign of a happy dog?.- This is not always true, tail wagging can also be a sign of fear, anxiety or impending aggression.

6.Dogs should eat bones?.- It’s believed that eating bones dogs will get a lot of vitamin D and calcium, but in fact bones can injure intestines and cause bleeding, inflammation and severe constipation.
