Generally, dogs are joyful animals. They just have a different way of showing it sometimes. And just like us, some things can wear them down like stress, inactivity, hunger, etc. Most especially if we leave them at home because we have a life to do. Pick their happiness back up by doing these things:
1. Dance together
You might not realize it but dogs actually like to dance and move around. Give them a rhythm or show them that you are dancing and having a good time and they’ll be on their feet as well. It’s also one of those special bonds between them and their owner just like it is between couples. So, if you want to bond with your four-legged special someone, go ahead and play some music and dance to the tune. You can go enroll yourselves in dance classes but you can do it at home and not worry about getting watched by people if you’re worried about that.
2. Let them ruin their toys
Because dogs are animals. And they have this lethal instinct with them wherever they are especially when they are outside or if someone else is at home. They all have trust issues. So when they ruin their toys, just let them. They are just exercising their animal instincts. This helps maintain their sharpness. It’s actually good that they destroy their toys rather than other things on the house. And it may also be a sign that you need to get them a new one.
3. Brush their pearly whites
Because they may no longer be pearly. Or white. This one you can argue that dogs don’t like it. And you are right. Dogs don’t like it when their teeth are brushed. But they will when they realize that they have strong white teeth a decade from when you started brushing them.
4. Get them a new collar
Dogs’ collars need to be changed every now and then. It’s like us wearing the same clothes over and over again and not liking it and actually going out to go shopping. Imagine them wearing it for 2-3 years. Let your dogs feel something new by way of their collars. Get them a new one at least every year and at most at 2. This will make them feel a new fabric and weight around. You can get them new clothes too to match their brand-new collars.
5. Get them groomed often
They won’t like the washing part. But they will definitely like the drying, patting, blow-drying, haircut, and just the overall grooming routine. You don’t have to get them washed every day. That’s actually not healthy for their skin. But getting them groomed often will maintain their coat and, get rid of all build-up of dirt and pet dander, and make them look and feel their best. And if you are busy at the moment and cannot do basic grooming for your dog, you need only search the internet for a Dog grooming near me. There should be more than one search result.
