WE all know the stereotype of the famed celebrity carrying around their pooch in a handbag, showing off their diamond studded collar and hoping to make a show of it. Giving your pet a luxurious lifestyle needn’t be so over the top. Doing so can alienate not only your friends, but waste your money. After all, does the dog really understand whether or not your velvet plumed carry case is of the highest quality? All your dog cares about is love, affection, and food. It’s important to know exactly how you can be a positive pooch owner without having to ascribe to these silly ideals. We’d like to bring things back down to earth and potentially give you the opportunity to treat your dog luxuriously, without it being sickly.
Upgrade Their Diet
While kibble and biscuits are often good enough and can provide your pets with the best nutritional balance so long as you keep an eye on what you feed them, this can be relatively boring for a dog to eat every day. If you’re looking to truly treat your pet, consider upgrading their diet to the point where they can enjoy a balanced diet in both nutrition AND taste. Give them a variety of appropriate meats, as well as nice little flairs like doggy gravy or treats to eat after a meal. Some of these aren’t even fully on the side of indulgence either, as some treats can help clean their teeth and maintain positive gum health. It’s fun to treat your dog in this way, and it’s an excellent method of reinforcing good behavior and developing your bond with them even more. If you have the funds to support it, it can be a great way of feeding your pet.
Upgrade Their Sleeping Experience
We all know that along with love, affection, and food, the next most favorite thing for a dog to do is sleep. Even the most energetic ones need a good long kip before they’re ready to jump and be a bundle of energy all over again the following day. Why not consider upgrading the sleep hygiene of your pooch by assessing how they spend their rested time?
Leather dog beds provide a level of comfort and quality which can help your dog feel relaxed and comfortable at all times. Not only this, but it gives your dog a comfortable separate area that they’ll prefer instead of jumping on your bed to greet you, which can be considered a very unhygienic practice to keep. Not only this, but moving their bedding location to a place which is cool but clear of draughts, which has limited light during the evening and also in a strategic place to cause chaos if someone uninvited breaks in can be worth your while.
Show Them Love
There’s no better way than to TRULY pamper your pooch than to spend time with them. Walk them, exercise them, train them and constantly make a fuss over them. There’s nothing worse than a poor pet having to wait for you to get home while you’re working 65 hour weeks. Always make sure someone is home for most of the day in some regard so they feel catered for and loved, and try to include them in your expeditions such as your camping trips or vacations.
With these tips, your pooch will truly be the talk of the doggy town.
