A question that most dog owners really want to know the answer to, how do we make our fur-kids happy? Are we giving them the best life we can?
Dogs need way more than a biscuit and a walk around the block to keep them happy. They are team-players and problem solvers by nature, with an intelligence that far supersedes our comprehension. There are so many ways to make your dog happy - They are extremely optimistic animals after all. In fact, they are way more positive than humans and we could learn a thing or two about the grateful and 'in the moment' attitude of a dog! I love ALL THINGS DOG! Having spent lots of time researching dogs and how they think and behave and applying lots of these tips to Bodhi, here are some of the main things that I recommend you do to keep your fur-kid happy.
Exercise… And plenty of it!
This one is a no brainer really; it comes with the territory of dog ownership and is something that we must give to them every single day. The chance to run free and enjoy the big world! Exercise for your dog really isn't optional, you must walk your dog every single day. It is not OK to let them wander around a garden. They need so much more than that. Dogs must have daily exercise. A great exercise routine, appropriate to your dogs age, breed and size will have him really loving life. Lack of exercise leads to weight gain, boredom and no outlet to relieve stress or anxiety.
