Dogs, like any living creatures, have a few basic needs that need to be tended to on a daily basis. Pups need to be fed and given fresh water throughout the day, as well as be engaged in an active manner to keep the dog healthy and allow your pet to relieve itself. However, there are also specifics you will need to pay attention to regarding each breed. If you have a larger dog like a husky, for example, your pup needs to run around for longer periods so it can satisfy its natural need to move.
