5 Ways to Show Your Dog You Love Him

Author, Noelle Dunn for Professional Pet Sitting Etc.

How much do you love your dog? Dogs are easily the most perceptible pets and this makes it easy for them to be able to interpret your behavior and react accordingly. Also, dogs are very warm, loving and loyal and they always want to make their owners happy. The most enviable dog and owner relationships are those ones where they appear to have a connection and they understand each other. However, that did not happen overnight, it took conscious effort to create that kind of rapport. Therefore, as a dog owner who desires a closer relationship with your dog, you should also be interested in ways to show your dog you love him.

  1. Touch and contact.

The best way to show your dog your love them is to hold them and touch them as often as possible. This will make them feel safe and loved. When touching them, you should do more than pat them on the head; instead touch them like you would relate to other humans you love. When you are relaxing, you can let them sit on your laps or pet them when they lie down beside you.

  1. Daily exercise

Most young dogs love to run around and play. When you create time for your dog to run around and exercise daily, they will love you the more because it shows them that you have time for them.  It is a win-win situation for you because you will have a happy dog who will be well- behaved and you will have more time to bond. So, always make out time to go to the park and also take regular walks with your dog.

  1. Regular grooming

Your dog might not like getting water on their body, but a well-groomed dog is always a happy dog. So you have to make out time to groom your dog regularly. There are grooming services that help pamper your dog and make them feel like royalty. However, some of these services may cost more than you can afford, so you can groom your dog by yourself at home. This will be more relaxing and also give you the opportunity to bond more.


  1. Proper socialization

While it is relatively safer to keep your dog indoors most of the time, the disadvantage is that they might not get enough socialization. Therefore, you should make out time to allow your dog meet other dogs and make friends. A good way to do this is to visit dog parks and have picnics where other dog owners are. However, if your dog is not properly trained, then you should keep him on a leash so he does not get into awkward or unpleasant situations.

  1. Regular veterinary check ups

A healthy dog is a happy dog. Your dog needs to have regular checkups whether he falls ill often or not. This can help forestall diseases and unpleasant experiences. In addition, your visit to the vet will give you the opportunity to discover new ways to take care of your dog.

Loving your dog is one thing.  Showing him isn’t very hard but it does take just a little more effort!  How do you show your dog that you love him and keep him happy?
