Have you made a new year resolution yet?
This new year while you work hard to follow your dreams and improve your lifestyle, be sure to add taking good care of your dog to the list. Taking your pet to a walk daily or hiring a dog walker Toronto is a great idea. It helps your friend to get the exercise and fun they need, daily.
Here are six other quick tips to keep your furry little friend safe and sound all year round.
Reduce Your Alcohol Intake
Dog abuse is a common problem in the US. To reduce this, you can start by restraining yourself from drinking a lot. This way you remain more vigilant towards your pet and are stable enough to keep them safe. Your dog loves you unconditionally, return the love by providing them a safe environment to live in.
Give Them Some Space
Everyone deserves a place they feel safe in. Give your dog a warm, cozy spot in the house to rest when they’re exhausted. Whether they are tired of running around the house or want a quiet place to sleep at night, that’s where they can relax. Be courteous towards your pets and respect their personal space.
Make Resolutions–With Your Dog!
Is your resolution going out on a walk daily to shed those extra pounds? Make a new one–take your dog with you!
This can increase your bonding and be a good workout for the little buddies as well. Don’t make resolutions only for yourself–make them for you and your pet!
Go out to walk your dog more often, teach them new tricks or find a new dog run this year. Include them in your activities whenever you can.
Everyone loves new clothes (you can’t deny it), so does your dog. However, make sure that you choose outfits without embellishments that can mess with their senses. New and comfortable clothes are a great way to show your pet that you care for them. Although, some dogs are not fans of wearing clothes. If that’s the case, their comfort always comes first.
Keep the Volume Down
One thing we all know is that dogs hate noise. Control the noise when it gets loud as it can get very irritating for the pet’s ears. When it gets noisy, play some soft jazz or classical music to create a bearable environment for them.
Love and Care for Them!
When you go out with them for a stroll or take them to a party monitor them carefully. Be cautious and keep them from swallowing debris, confetti or anything that can prove hazardous to their health.
Most importantly, spend time with them and love them unconditionally. Protect them from anything that can impact their wellbeing. Pets love getting attention from you and detect the slightest change in your behavior towards them or in general. Play with them, relax, and enjoy the time you spend with the little munchkin to the most.
