In just a couple weeks,Thanksgiving will be upon us. And we are definitely thankful for our canine pals! Dogs are loyal, loving, and playful, not to mention absolutely adorable. They also provide us with living reminders that sometimes the best things in life really are the little things. It doesn’t take much to please Fido. Here, a vet talks about some budget-friendly ways to get that tail going!
Playing is not only boatloads of fun for Fido, but it also offers him a great workout and beneficial mental stimulation. Try to get into the habit of carving out at least a few minutes of doggy playtime each day. This will keep your furry pal both healthy and happy!
Did you know that many of our canine buddies really like learning new things? Mastering a new command or trick can be a great confidence booster for Fido. Plus, pleasing their humans is something dogs really strive to do. You can see how adorably happy Fido gets when he’s praised for being a good boy!
Those daily walks are more than just potty breaks for Man’s Best Friend. Dogs take in a lot of information from scents. Sniffing around offers your pup mental stimulation and also helps satisfy his natural curiosity about his surroundings. For these reasons, you should walk your pet at least once a day, whether you have a yard for your furry buddy to patrol and chase squirrels in or not. Try not to think of taking Fido out as a chore. The fresh air and exercise will be good for you, too!
One small luxury that can make a huge difference is good bedding. Fido will spend as much as half of his time sleeping, so having a good bed to doze off in is important. We usually recommend orthopedic beds for larger dogs.
Fido is never so cute as when he spots a new plaything. And there’s no need to break the bank buying dog toys. You can easily make a homemade rope pull by cutting an old tee-shirt or towel into strips, and then braiding them together. Instant tail wags!
The best way to get Fido’s tail wagging is to just pay attention to him. That special bond we form with our canine companions must be nurtured!
