There is an age old saying that everyone knows, and it goes that the dog is a mans best friend. If that is true, then you should do as much as you can to make your best friend happy, because he makes you happy.
Dogs enjoy every second of your time that you decide to spend with them, and best of all, you don’t even have to think up extra activities for them to do, because they will adapt to the things you like.
A daily walk or jog is a great way to bond with your dog, and it will make you both feel better and healthier
Take your canine best friend to the park and let him run with other dogs or play a game of catch or Frisbee with him.
For all of those people who can’t set aside that much time in the day for their dog, a great choice is to buy a dog a toy and let them go crazy and enjoy themselves. Don’t stress out if the dog destroys the toy, that’s what they are meant for, and it gives your dogs a great exercise while doing it.
Another simple and easy way is to treat your pet well
And we mean exactly as we phrased it, find out what treats and foods suit him the best and make his belly happy. It is also important that you always maintain and change his water daily, so he has fresh and clean water available to suit his thirst.
A more time consuming and maybe less enjoyable outing would be to see your nearby vet. Your pet may not like going to the vet’s, but he will certainly be happier and more joyful if he is free of ear mites, flees or other uncomfortable insects. Visit the vet often, every six months if you can, as it is very important to check up on your pet’s health. A healthy dog is a happy dog.
Spend as much time as you can talking to him, you might not experience the deepest conversation, but your dog will certainly be very happy that you are ‘talking’ to each other. You can do this while you are walking, giving him a bath, petting him or whenever you feel like it. Dogs are also great at reading emotions, so they will sense and know when something is wrong with you.
A great way to make the dog feel more included and happy is to train him and teach him new tricks
Reward him with his favorite treat when he learns a new trick and also be stern but gentle when he does a bad thing. Don’t hit your dog, as only bad can come out of that.
In the end, all of these advices are only pointers and suggestions on what you can do. There are many more ways you can make your dog happy and it depends on you and your dog what activity you will do together.
