All dogs deserve to be happy. They’re our loyal companions, our friends and very often, our activity partners. Sometimes life gets in the way and we forget the needs of our furry buddies. Below are 3 ways to keep your dog happy. Oh, and you’ll start feeling great too!
1. Get Into a Positive Routine
Create a new weekly positive routine. It could be bringing your pooch to the local dog park. It’s great exercise and socialization for your dog but it’s also a great opportunity to meet new dog people. Creating this routine is a great way to take a break and get some fresh air.
2. Get a Toy That Lasts
For a while, it seemed like we were buying a new toy every month for our dogs. Dog toys are crazy expensive and some are down right dangerous. Fortunately, we bought our pups one toy that has outlasted them all. It’s elk antlers. These antlers have been gnawed, chewed and savored for over 8 months now and have finally been grinded down to a nub. These antlers are a little pricer than other chew toys but they last 10 times longer. In fact the elk antler we bought didn’t smell or chip. You can buy the same one we bought on Amazon, Chasing Our Tails Elk Rack Snack.
3. Give Your Dog a Bath
You may not realize it but all of our dogs know when they’re dirty. Being dirty can get them down and make them act shy and unconfident. Give them a bath and you’ll see there personality shine. The same goes for a haircut! Napa is especially happy when is eyebrows get a trim and he can see again!
It’s the simple things that can really make a dogs day. Do you have a special way to your dog happy? Please share it in the comments.
