Make 2018 the Year You Should Your Dog How Much You Appreciate Them*

Do you ever stop to think about whether your dog know how much you care about them? If not, 2018 is the year to start paying more attention to things like that. We’re all guilty of occasionally taking our pets for granted, but it shouldn’t be the case. If you read on now, you’ll learn about five great ways in which you can really show your dog or dogs how much you really do care and love them.

Give Them the Human Contact They Crave

Physical contact between you and your dog is an essential part of the bonding process, and it’s not something that can be shunned. When your dog jumps up on the sofa or approaches you, they’re not just doing that to annoy you. They’re seeking that contact with you and it’s something that you should give them. It’s the most straightforward way of showing them you care.

Do More to Care For Their Skin and Coat

A dog’s coat can have problems without its owner even realising. That’s something you should be aware of if you want to ensure they’re comfortable and happy at all times. Products like Aniforte are used by some dog owners to keep their dog’s coat as healthy as possible. Keeping an eye on the health of their skin is something you’ll need to do as well.

Go On Longer and More Adventurous Walks With Your Dog

Dogs not only need to walk, they like walking too. Sure, when you lead a busy lifestyle, it can be hard to find time for long walks with your dog, but you can’t avoid this responsibility as a dog owner; that’s not fair for them. Make your walks longer and more adventurous than they’ve ever been before. Your dog will be happier and healthier as a result, meaning it has to be worthwhile.

Let Them Get Dirty

Some owners think they’re being helpful by restricting what their dogs can do outdoors. But sometimes you just need to let them be wild and free, and that means letting them run through the mud and get dirty. It’s what they want to do and they’ll enjoy it. They’ll probably enjoy going home and getting a scrub down in the bath too, so why not allow them that?

Be More Vocal Around Your Dog

It’s not just physical contact that you have to think about if you want to show your dog that you love them. Vocal communication might seem pointless because your dog can’t understand English, but that’s not the case. They still enjoy and appreciate being spoken to because it’s a form of communication and it’s a way of acknowledging them, which is really important.

Your dog clearly means a lot to you; that’s the case for the vast majority of dog owners. But that doesn’t mean that your dog necessarily knows and understands how much you care. These ideas will all help you to show them in a way that they will enjoy and understand.
