Bobi is world’s oldest dog.

On the family farm in the Portuguese village of Conqueiros, Bobi, who was just named the world's oldest living dog by Guinness World Records, spent the majority of his 30 years.

Erik Olstad, an assistant professor at the University of California at Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, told The Washington Post that "it really is an odd event." 

"Owners frequently ask me how to help their dogs live as long as possible. Given the various factors that affect life expectancy, that is a loaded question.

As dogs age, the extra weight will make it much harder to address mobility disorders like arthritis or ruptured ligaments,

so dog owners should make an effort to feed them high-quality dog food and prevent overfeeding.

There must be preventive care. Maintain their immunisation records, take them to the dentist, and take them to the veterinarian for a routine checkup once or twice a year.

Exercise is essential both physically and mentally. As long as your dog's breed and age permit, take your dog on frequent, long walks and runs.

Your 1-year-old border collie won't need the same exercise that your bulldog with arthritis needs from a five-mile run. In that situation, 

experts said that you would be better off taking your dog on four 15-minute walks each day. Hide sweets and food inside their toys to stimulate their minds.
