There’s a special doggy holiday coming up: August 10th is Spoil Your Dog Day! While we think dogs should be spoiled every day, this is a great time to get some extra tail wags and happy dances. In this article, a local Tipp City, OH vet lists some great ways to spoil your furry best friend.
Playing isn’t just fun for Fido: it’s actually great for him! Running and jumping both keep dogs healthy, and also provides them with beneficial mental stimulation. Feel free to get your canine pal a new plaything. Classic doggy toys are fine, but if you want to go all out, get your four-legged friend a fun modern toy, like an automated ball launcher or a mechanical laser pointer.
Nothing gets that cute tail going like the thought of a yummy snack! Offer your pooch some doggy ice cream, which you can find in most pet stores. Your canine companion can also have some cooked, plain meat, without the bones, skin, or fat. A little bit of bacon or sausage is okay, but you don’t want to go overboard with these fatty snacks. Store-bought treats are also fine.
Dogs love exploring new places! Take your canine friend on a fun excursion to a lake, doggy park, or just explore a new trail with him. Just be sure to put your four-legged pal’s safety first: bring lots of water along for him, and make sure he is microchipped, wearing ID tags, and current on all exams and vaccinations.
Do you have a yard for Fido to play in? Why not get your pooch a doghouse? You can also make your dog’s outdoor time more fun by adding a swimming pool, sandbox, or a doggy agility course. Your furry buddy may also enjoy playing in the spray from a sprinkler.
At the end of the day, all your dog wants is to spend time with his best friend: you. Take Fido for a nice, long walk. When you get home, play with him, pet him, and just enjoy some quiet time with him. Sadly, the time we have to spend with our animal companions often passes much too quickly!
