4 Ways In Which You Can Show Your Dog How Much You Love Him
Do you have at least one framed photo of your dog somewhere in
your house... or maybe in your wallet? Is your dog pretty darn close to being the very center of your universe? Do you love
spoiling him, respond to his every whimper and cry, and spend hundreds of dollars on gourmet treats? To say that dogs are man's
best friend is anything but a cliché. You might be the most miserable person in the world without a friend to your name...
but your dog will treat you like royalty every time you walk through the door. So how do you repay that unconditional love and devotion? There are hundreds of different ways!
1. Spoil him rotten.
A lot of people spend a lot of money at chic pet boutiques, dressing their dogs in hundred-dollar sweaters and paying for
meticulous pedicures. They buy diamond studded collars and give their dogs rooms all to themselves. You probably don't have the
budget for things like that, right? You can still spoil your dog with simple, everyday things that cost you the absolute minimum.
Next time your pooch needs a bath, focus on giving him a massage while you're working the shampoo into his coat. Take him out for
a drive once each week and dress according to the weather so you can open a window and let his head hang out, his ears flapping in the breeze. Or you can?
2. Stuff him silly.
Your dog lives by food! It drives every thought he has, every impulse in his body. But you're more rational, you know that food
needs to be both delicious and nutritious to make sure he has as long and happy a life as possible. Why not try making some
homemade treats and dog food that are absolutely packed with all of the vitamins and nutrients he needs? Bake him a delicious,
healthy cake for his next birthday, then share a few cookies with him!
3. Prepare for the worst.
If you know exactly what to do in a tough situation or an emergency, you infinitely increase the chances that your dog will
be around for a long time to come. Do you know what to do when he's choking? You should lay your dog on his side and place one
hand on his back and the other on his stomach just behind his rib cage. Using the stomach hand, push in and toward the throat
twice, but without too much force. If you can see a foreign object, sweep your fingers through his mouth to remove it. If
he's still choking, place your mouth over his nose and exhale until his chest rises. Repeat once, and then thrust two more
times. Continue until he coughs out the obstruction. Now consider what would happen if he started to choke and you had no clue what
to do, then ended up spending 10 minutes calling vets and driving him there. Making sure you're prepared to care for his health and
wellbeing is a great way to show him how much you love him.
4. Speak his language.
Unless you believe in pet psychics, there's really no way for you to read your pooch's mind and figure out exactly what she's
thinking. The good news is that, like many dog owners, the problems you're having can probably be traced to one simple
thing: you're trying to communicate with your dog from a human standpoint, and your dog isn't a human. Rather than saying "no,"
a word that doesn't really mean anything to a dog, try growling in a deep, throaty voice the next time you're unhappy with
something he's done. He'll get the message immediately and you won't have to go through a big, drawn-out battle of wills. He'll
appreciate you meeting him halfway!
