Dogs need your attention and companionship
Dogs love being around their owner and just love being a part of their day in any way that they can. My dog follows me around EVERYWHERE and hardly ever leaves my side. There are a few moments in the day when he wants some time to himself, but it’s not much. Let your dog cuddle up with you and talk to him. He can’t talk back, but believe me he is listening! Your dog needs you so make sure you are there for him.
Dogs need to be active
Dogs need to be active to be healthy just like you do. You want your dog around for as much as possible right? Be active with your dog on a regular basis. Take your dog for a walk or jog. Let your dog interact and play with other dogs at the dog park. Have a playdate with other dogs in your family or your friend’s dog. You’re showing your dog more attention and keeping him healthy. Win, win!
Dogs are the best friends you’ll ever have
My dog is my BFF! Since he’s my best friend I should treat him as such. Don’t you give your human besties your attention and you are there for them when they need you? Make sure you pencil your dog in on that busy schedule of yours. Include your dog in some of your activities. Check to see if some of the places you go are dog-friendly and bring your dog along. Always be there for your dog and show him that you care! That starts with giving him your attention and he needs it every single day.
Dogs love you more than you love yourself
Dogs love you unconditionally. They are ride or die! Dogs love you no matter what you think of yourself or if you just yelled at him 5 seconds ago for getting into the trash bag. We should all be more like our dogs. Dogs are so forgiving and loving…it’s just amazing the kind of personality a dog has. They are just so awesome and a dog so awesome deserves all of the attention that you can possibly give.
