5 Ways To Show Your Dog You Love Them
Our canine companions benefit our lives tremendously. They help improve our quality of life through companionship and unconditional love. Our dogs express their love for us every day through an energetic wag of their tail, a slobbery kiss or an eager greeting at the door.
Therefore, why not do something a little extra special to show Fido how much you love him? You probably have a bunch of ideas on how to do this. However, if you are looking for some fresh suggestions, take a look at the following list. You might find something new to add to your toolbox of doggie affection tips.
1. Add an Extra Walk to Their Daily Routine
Nobody loves a good walk more than a dog. For your pooch, a walk around the neighborhood provides tons of sensory stimulation, as well as exercise for the both of you. It also gives your pup some time to stretch and burn off any pent-up energy he may have acquired. Take advantage of this extra walk by using the time to bond with your canine companion through a shared activity.
2. Pick Fido Up His Favorite Treat
Most dogs have a favorite treat that they enjoy above all others. If you know what that special treat is, why not pick up a few on your way home from work and surprise your pal. Not only will enjoying his favorite snack make Fido’s day, but it will add some good feelings to yours knowing how happy you made your four-legged friend.
3. Add a Nutritious Supplement to Their Diet
Providing your pooch with a nutritious high-quality diet is another way to show him how much you care. Go one step further and provide your pup with a pet vitamin supplement, like NuVet Plus, as well. Fido will love the taste, and the wafer can be given as a treat!
For more information about NuVet Plus and it’s nutritious human grade ingredients, watch the videos on the NuVet Labs YouTube page. Your pooch will be thrilled with the delicious flavor, and you can be happy knowing you are providing your dog with optimal nutrition.
4. Buy Fido a New Doggie Bed
If your doggie bed is looking a bit old, or your pup is getting up there in years, why not splurge a little and pick up a fancy memory foam bed for him? Your local pet supply store should carry them. We are sure that seeing your dog comfy and curled up on his new bed will have everybody feeling and sleeping much better.
5. Learn Doggie Massage
Humans are not the only ones who love massages, so do pups! Help ease your pet’s anxiety, reduce stress and relieve tense muscles by learning the art of doggie massage. There are many books available on the topic that can be found at the library, online or at your local pet store.
A relaxed dog is a happy dog, and as the masseuse, you reap the benefits as well! Petting a dog has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety and lower blood pressure in humans. It’s a win-win situation!
6. The Little Things
Don’t forget the little things. Show your dog how much you love him every day by spending time with him. Fido is a part of the family, and wants to be treated as such. Remember to talk to Fido when you get home from work, give him hugs or affection, play fetch in the backyard, or give him a good brushing. These little things will not go unnoticed, and will go a long way in showing your pooch that you care.
Just like with love and appreciation it is easy to provide your dog with good nutrition, which is why we created NuVet Plus and NuJoint Plus. Made with high-quality ingredients and produced in an FDA registered lab, you can feel confident that your dog is receiving the best.
