Keep your new year’s resolutions simple and fun.  This way, you be more motivated to do it more often and stick to it 🙂

Read To Your Dog

Do you read to your kids at bedtime? Have your fur baby join you.  Your pet can be allowed on the bed with the kids. If it is not allowed, your pet can can lie down by the bed.

Don’t have kids? You can read to your fur baby anyway.

  1. Take long walks.

    Take Long Walks With Your Pet

It can be on the sidewalk, or in the park—whatever works best for you and your dog. Going for a nice walk or run is one of the best ways pet owners can profess their love. Dogs really enjoy being active.

Go take your dog for a walk around the block, or spend a half an hour in the evening or early morning just going for a play.

  1.  Ear Rubs Make Your Dog High On Love

Ear Rubs Make Your Dog High On Love

Ear rubs literally make your dog high. A dog’s ears are full of nerve endings that send impulses all through the body, triggering the release of endorphins. These hormones act as painkillers and are natural “drugs” that are also released when dogs feel love.

  1.  Train Your Dog

Train Your Dog

Positive reinforcement is an excellent way to communicate your love, and training your dog will give you that opportunity and only make your bond stronger. Present your dog with their favorite forms of motivation, whether that’s food, praise, or play, and your dog will come to see you as a provider of the things he loves the most.

  1. Take time to pet your fur baby

Take Time To Pet Your Fur Baby

Having a pet and petting a pet makes our heart rate slow down and our stress levels go down. It simply makes us feel better and your fur baby will feel better, too.
