Keep Your Companion Content

Having a dog is a wonderful gift that everyone deserves to experience. They give us so much and have a huge positive impact on our lives. There are many reasons as to why you should get one, so if you haven't already - what are you waiting for?

They say that a dog is a man's best friend, and it really is just that. They provide you with so much endless love that you don't even have to do anything to receive it. They give and give because it's what they do best, and yet they don't expect anything else from you in return. Some people even say that dogs are better than humans because they don't have the ability to lie - they're one - if not the only - most loyal creature on the planet.

So as you can see they give us all we could ever have asked for, so what can we do for them in return?

Keep them healthy

This is all down to the foods that you give them. Bear in mind that if you accidently leave a table full of food out with your dog in the room - they will consume as much as they possibly can. So what you give them is very important. The food that they have is one thing, but you can also ensure that they are getting all the right nutrients that they need with extra supplements. If you're not sure what these may be, you can have a look online and find things like the best fish oil for dogs, as this gives them the essential fatty acids that improve so many things from their neurological health to their cardiovascular health.

Keep them fit

It is your responsibility to make sure that they are getting all the exercise they need. Sure, if you have your own garden then they can play outside, but that doesn't mean that you don't have to take them for walks. You still need to do this around three times every day to keep them mobile and healthy. Plus they'll thank you for this outing. Dogs aren't meant to be kept locked away inside four walls - they're an animal. They need to go out and see new things and smell new scents and explore! That's what they crave, to go out and socialise with other dogs from the park. Just like a human, if they don't get that then they are prone to becoming depressed and miserable.

Keep them loved

This shouldn't come hard to you, because that's part of what owning a dog is filled with - love. It doesn't take much for you to show them your love. It can be with your voice, your touch, and even the look you have in your eyes. You wouldn't believe how intelligent dogs are - they have a sixth sense, and the ability to read a humans body language is extraordinary. So they know how you feel, they can pick up on it. The action of petting your dog is a magical connection that not only feels lovely for them, but it also relaxes their muscles and relieves any stress they may be feeling.
