Dogs bring so much joy into our lives. Whether on Valentines Day, birthdays or just because, our four-legged companions need some love! From exercise and nutrition to snuggles and massages, here are a few ways to show your dog affection and appreciation.
Puppy Love: 3 Ways to Show Your Dog Affection
"And they called it puppy love." — Paul Anka, Puppy Love
Go For a Nature Walk
What better way to share some quality bonding time with your dog than with a long walk. Whether you head around the neighborhood or bring them on a hike in the woods, taking a walk is a fun way to get some exercise and show your dog affection at the same time.
Treat Your Dog
If you’ve ever seen a ravenous pup devour their food, you know that dogs love to eat. Show your pup some love this year by making him/her some delicious homemade treats. Healthy treats are not only a way to incentivize behavior with training, but can improve your dog’s longevity, too. Stick to natural foods without additives so you know exactly what your dog is consuming.
