Our dogs are our family, and we always want to make sure that they have everything they need. Fundamental things like food, water, and shelter are a given, but what else is necessary to make our dogs’ lives the best they can be?
Below are the nine things that our dogs need from us the most. Luckily, doggos bring so much to our lives, we enjoy keeping them happy and healthy!
Undivided Attention (at least some of the time)
Our lives are crazy busy, and as much as we’d love to, we can’t give our dogs our full attention all the time. However, it’s important to dedicate some time every day to giving our dogs our undivided attention. That means no phones and no distractions – just quality time with your pup.
We love to spoil our dogs, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t need some rules. In fact, having boundaries helps ease their stress. If they know how to behave in certain situations and can anticipate how you’ll react, they won’t be anxious from not knowing what to expect. It’s also important to stay consistent. For instance, don’t let your pup on the couch one day and kick him off the next. It’ll only lead to stress and confusion.
