4 Ways To Keep Your Dog Happy And Healthy


As a pet parent, you want your dog to be happy and healthy all the time.

But you could get busy sometimes and neglect your dog's well-being.

There are ways you can do to ensure your fur baby is as healthy and happy as s/he can be.

You feed them and take them for regular walks.

Are those enough?

Not really.

Here are 4 ways to keep your dog happy and healthy for many years to come.


4 Ways to Keep Your Dog Happy and Healthy


1. Have fun with fitness

Going for walks is good for your dog but it can get boring. 

Give them a new routine.

Take a different route or detour to the local park.

Dogs love to explore. Let them off the leash in a safe area and they will have the time of their lives.

Other activities you may want to try with your dog:

  • Agility training
  • Playing fetch
  • Practicing on an obstacle course
  • Taking part in a doggy fitness class

2. Motivate their mind

Your dog’s mental well-being is just as important as their physical health.

Keep their minds active with these activities:

  • Teach them new tricks
  • Introduce them to new people
  • Take them to new places
  • Expose them to new smells
  • Play new games
  • Buy them toys they don't have yet

3. Make sure they're not lonely

You work hard to give your dog a good life.

But if you work long hours or are always out of town, you may want to consider doggy daycare. Check out heartandpaw.com.

Signs your dog may be lonely:

  • Destructive behavior
  • Excessive barking
  • Having accidents inside the house
  • Reduced appetite
  • Low energy levels
  • Aggressive behavior
  • They become withdrawn
A doggy daycare center will provide them with the stimulation and company they need to be happy and thrive.

Check also with your vet if your dog shows these signs as it may be a symptom of an underlying illness.
