Everyone could do with a little appreciation every now and then and your pet is no exception. Your dog may not be able to talk or show appreciation but be sure they deeply understand your actions towards them. You may see this when they wag their tail or jump around to show excitement.
In order to create a stronger bond and show your pet some love, always remember to show them appreciation every once in a while.
Here are some of the ways to show your dog some appreciation;
- Schedule some time with your pet
Just like humans, dogs love attention. Take a few hours off your busy schedule to spend with your pooch. This time could be spent playing, taking him for a walk or simply petting them. Since every dog is different, you need to find something that tickles your dog to show how much you love and appreciate them and include it in your routine.
- Treat them to a spa
Pampering your pet at a doggy spa is a great way to show appreciation to your furry canine. The session could start with a bath, body check for any bumps and sore spots, nail trimming and finally a full body massage to eliminate muscle knots and body aches. To conclude your pet’s day at the spa give them a treat.
- Set up a doggy play date
Socialization enables your pet to learn new skills. Like people, allow your dog to interact with others their kind. You can do this by bringing together family and friends and their dogs on that sunny afternoon for a date. Pet play dates are important for social interaction enabling your dog to be all rounded.
- Upgrade your dog’s bed
Appreciate your best friend by buying him a new bed if what he has is worn out. This doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg, you can do it yourself by getting a thick and fluffy or soft fabric stuffed firmly. Include a blanket to snuggle up in and be sure that your pet will love you even more for it.
- Make pet friendly treats
Special homemade treats is one of the ways to show your pooch some appreciation. Include their favorite pet food in the recipe. This will ensure that your dog consumes just the right amount of calories to avoid weight gain. You also get to choose what’s inside in terms of nutritional content.
Some dogs may feel isolated and unloved when ignored. You should try to make appreciating your dog an everyday affair. This makes the dog feel at ease and more secure around you!
