We dress our dogs up, we buy stylish dog beds, healthy treats, toys and even carry them around in designer doggy bags. We treat our dogs as one of us, a human! Right, wrong or other, we are all guilty of loving our dogs.
Dogs enjoy our affection and here are a few ways to give your dog affection that he can understand. Start by petting your dog around his neck and chest area. Let him sit on the couch with you and enjoy the comfort as much as he will. Try petting him for a bit, then stop. If he nudges you that means he liked it and would like more.
Engage in a playful manner to give your dog, as well as yourself, a bit of exercise. If you are feeling up to it, take your fuzzy friend for a long walk. Dogs know you care when you say that 4 letter word....Walk!!
