- Save on our Plans
In a few weeks, Thanksgiving will be upon us. And we’re definitely thankful for our canine companions! Dogs are loving, playful, and loyal, not to mention cute as all get-out. They’re actually living reminders that sometimes the little things really are the best things in life. Fido doesn’t need much to be happy. Here, a vet lists some budget-friendly ways to get that tail going!
Playtime offers Fido healthy mental stimulation, a great workout and it’s fun for him. Try to make a habit of taking at least a few minutes of doggy playtime each day. This will keep your furry buddy both happy and healthy!
Unbeknownst to some, many of our canine pals actually like learning new things. Learning a new trick or command can really boost your pooch’s confidence. Plus, dogs really strive to please their humans. Just praise Fido when he earns a “Good boy!” and see how adorably happy he gets!
Man’s Best Friend gets more out of your daily walks together than just a potty break. Dogs pick up a lot of information from scents. His need to sniff around helps satisfy Fido’s natural curiosity about his surroundings and offers him mental stimulation. Even if you have a yard for your furry buddy to chase squirrels and patrol in, you should walk your pet at least once a day. Try not to think of taking Fido out as a chore. Both you and your buddy will benefit from the exercise and fresh air!
It may seem like a small luxury, but good bedding can make a huge difference. On average, Fido will spend as much as half of his time sleeping, so it’s important for him to have a comfortable bed to doze off in. We usually recommend orthopedic beds for larger dogs.
Fido with a new plaything is always super cute. And you don’t have to break the bank buying dog toys, though. Something like a homemade rope pull can be manufactured by cutting an old towel or tee-shirt into strips, and then braiding them together. Instant tail wags!
Paying attention to Fido is the best way to get his tail wagging. That special bond we form with our canine pals must be nurtured!
