Give Your Dog All The Love He Deserves

Dogs aren’t just pets, ask any dog owner and they’ll tell you that their pooch is a bonafide member of the family. If you choose to get a dog, you’re making the decision to include your new fur baby in your family for the next 10 to 20 years. You know that saying, ‘A dog’s for life, not just for Christmas’, well it’s so true.


Any dog owner will tell you that dogs create incredible bonds with their humans, loving them unconditionally no matter what. Your dog knows when you’re sad, when you’re happy and when you need a cuddle, and does everything that he can to give you what you need. And as a pet owner, it’s your responsibility to do the same for him. Far too many people adopt a dog when they don’t have the time or love for it. If you’re going to add a pooch to your pack, you need to ensure that you can give him all the love he deserves.


As a pet owner, what should you be doing? (Aka, what does it mean to be a loving and kind pet mommy?)


Feed him good-quality food
It’s not enough to feed your dog every day; you need to feed him good-quality food. Think of it this way, you probably buy your family a range of nutritious foods, and always ensure that you’re getting everything you need. Well, it’s the same when it comes to your dog, he deserves the best food. Not all dog foods are born equal and it’s important to realize that. If you want a healthy, happy dog, it’s crucial that you buy him good-quality food. He’ll be better behaved, healthier, and live longer because of it. To find out what the best food is for him, ask your vet for advice.


Give him lots of love




Adopting a dog is like adding a child to your family; they’re needy and require lots of love and attention. Just like humans, dogs are social creatures who crave affection, which means that they need lots of cuddles each day. If you want a dog that’s happy and lovable, you need to give him attention, love and cuddles every single day.


Let him get the exercise he needs
Dogs need to exercise, else they gain weight, lose muscle and become hyper. Of course, how often your dog will need to be walked will depend on the breed that he is, but as a rule of thumb, two to three walks a day is what vets recommend. If you’re going to be out at work all day, it’s important that you work out a way for your pooch to get some exercise. Perhaps you could ask a friend or relative to pop in and walk him? Or maybe, you could contact A Leg Up and use their dog walking services, or another local dog walker. It might cost you, but if you care about your pup, you’ll make sure that he gets all the exercise that he needs.


Ensure he’s got toys to play with and isn’t bored
Dogs get bored easily, especially young dogs. A dog that’s bored can become destructive and aggressive. That's why it’s important to provide your pooch with plenty of toys to keep him occupied. A mixture of balls, soft toys, chew toys, and treat toys are recommended by vets, so make sure your dog has, at least, one of each of these kinds of toy.
If you’re going to adopt a dog, you need to ensure that you can give him all the love and affection that he needs.
