18 Ideas for a Happy Dog, a Happy Us!
All dogs are like our precious little darlings, our fur-ever friends. They bring social and emotional support for everyone. Like us, a happy dog would mean better health and a more enriching life. We know dogs are unique. They are motivated by various things.
As a dog owner, it is vital to understand what gets that tail wagging. Once we have a repertoire of things we can carry out, we will be in a strong position to bestow happiness to our ‘furries’.
These things may have little educational, development or nutritional value to our dogs, but if it gets that tail or that little stump wagging, it’s definitely worth the effort!
Spend time engaging with them. They might not understand what we are saying but he will be happy that both of you are “talking” to each other. They can be our best keeper of secrets. After all, that’s what fur-ever friends are for.
