6 Cheap Ways To Make Your Dog's Day

November 15 2021

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. And boy-o-boy are we thankful for our canine companions! Dogs are loving, playful, and loyal, not to mention absolutely adorable. They also serve as living reminders of how important the little things are in life. It doesn’t take much to please Fido. Here, a vet offers some budget-friendly ways to get that tail going!


Playtime

Playing with you is not only fun for Fido, it also promotes beneficial mental stimulation and a great workout. Try to get into the habit of carving out at least a few minutes of doggy playtime every day. This will keep your furry pal healthy and happy!


Training

Did you know that many of our canine pals actually enjoy learning new things? Mastering a new command or trick can be a great confidence builder for your pooch. Plus, dogs really strive to please their humans. It’s easy to see how adorably happy Fido gets when he’s praised for being a good boy!


Walks

Those daily walks are more than just potty breaks for Man’s Best Friend. Your little buddy picks up a lot of information from scents. Sniffing every little nook and cranny helps satisfy your pup’s natural curiosity about his surroundings while also providing him mental stimulation. Even if you have a yard for your furry buddy to patrol and chase squirrels in, it’s still important to walk your pet at least once a day. Try not to think of it as a chore. The fresh air will be good for both you and Fido!


Comfy Beds

A small luxury, like good bedding, can make a huge difference. As much as half of Fido’s time will be spent sleeping, so he needs to have a good bed to doze off in. We usually recommend orthopedic beds for larger dogs.


New Toys

Fido is so super cute when he sports a new plaything. There’s no need to break the bank buying dog toys, though. Finding a new toy can be as simple as cutting an old towel or tee-shirt into strips, braiding them together, and making a homemade rope. Instant tail wags!


Affection

Just paying attention to Fido is the best way to get his tail going. That special bond we form with our canine pals must be nurtured!
