How to Make Your Dog Love You More
If you want to improve the relationship you have with your furry buddy or you just got a new puppy and want to fully commit to bonding with your dog keep on reading.
Take Frequent Walks
Even though we look at our dogs like our family members, we still have to remember that they are animals that aren’t meant to be housebound. I know that some dogs don’t like to walk, especially when it’s rainy outside but nevertheless, we should never overlook the importance of frequent walks.
They aren’t just an opportunity for exercise but also a chance for you to spend some quality bonding time with your dog as well. It is very important to walk your dog several times a day and not just let him go potty in your backyard.
Exercise is super important for the quality of a dog’s life and walking also gives him a chance to spend time with their favorite person … that’s you!
Better Communication through Proper Training
Training your dog is how you learn how to communicate with him. Another benefit of training is that it reduces aggressive behavior. It also reduces “undesirable” behaviors like chewing, digging and barking. And, it is a fantastic way to spend quality time with your pet.
Give Your Pup a Job
No, not a 9 to 5 type of job just something so he feels appreciated and needed like sending him to get you newspapers or slippers.
Give Him a Treat
Bring out your good boy’s favorite treat to encourage desired behavior. When he does something good, feed him his favorite fruit or vegetable (in moderation of course). You can cook them, but it is more beneficial to feed your dog raw fruits and vegetables.
Let Your Pup Snuggle Up in Your Bed
Some people don’t like to let their pets in the bedroom, let alone their bed. Allowing your pooch to lie down in bed with you will make him love you more than anything in the world. Your dog will feel absolutely privileged you let him into your bed, and this is the thing that will bond you two the most.
Bring Your Buddy on a Vacation with You
Nobody likes to be left out of the fun activity, not even our pets. And just think about how much fun you’re going to be having with your dog on vacation with you. Yes, it’ll take you some planning ahead but you’ll feel much better knowing that your pet isn’t left home alone.
There are many pet-friendly vacations nowadays so with a little bit of research you can find the perfect place for you and your canine as well. Someday it will be a wonderful memory.
If you bring your dog on a vacation with you, note to never, ever leave your furry companion alone in the car if it’s really hot outside. Even if it’s not that hot he shouldn’t be left in the car for longer periods of time.
Take Care of Your Little Bundle of Joy
You know the best way to make your dog love you even more than he does right now? It essentially comes down to you showing him how much you care for him. You may have heard how dogs sense that you’re scared of them, and then they start to bark, some may even bite.
Well in the same way as they can feel fear, they can also sense love. And, how do we show them love? By having reasonably regular veterinary visits, healthy food and treats, and quality time spent together.
