Pamper Your Pet: How To Spoil Your Dog Without Going Overboard

Take Hikes and Walks

Allow your pet to explore the great outdoors by going on hikes and walks throughout the month. This will allow your dog to discover new sites and enjoy an open setting that they can freely roam without feeling bound by a fence. Consider visiting new areas, which can include nearby trails and beaches that are dog-friendly. Your pet will enjoy the adventure and will be less timid when it comes to roaming unfamiliar territories.

Give Baths

Maintain the health of your pooch by giving them baths every few months or weeks, which will remove odors and bacteria that builds up. Use Roxy’s Remedies soothing shampoo that is gentle and moisturizes the skin, which can help manage various skin conditions that may be present. Bathing the dog throughout the year will also remove allergens and irritants that have settled on the skin and in the fur.

Offer Tasty Treats

Your four-legged friend will feel spoiled by getting a tasty treat each day, which they can enjoy after performing a dog trick. Teach your dog to shake hands, spin around, or jump in the air before you reward them with a biscuit or chicken jerky that they can munch on for a snack. You can also use the treats to train a new puppy to ensure that they become obedient. Be sure you don’t feed them too much table food, and be careful about what you give them. Common foods we eat can be harmful to dogs, like grapes, chocolate, dairy and more.

Make Special Meals

You can improve the health of your dog and allow them to enjoy new flavors by making special meals once a week. Opt for cooking brown rice, quinoa, dehydrated apricots, and carrots to add as a topping on their dog food. They’ll enjoy the variety without becoming too spoiled with the healthy options.

When you want to show your dog a bit of love without spoiling them rotten, there are a number of ways to increase your level of care and allow them to thrive long-term. It will not only allow the pet to enjoy a happy and healthy life, but it will also increase the bond that you both share.

Our senior dog is on a diet. Over the winter she didn't get the exercise she needed plus she has arthritis in her hips, so it is sometimes difficult for her to maneuver. We have been adding cooked eggs, rice, and veggies to her dry food. She eats well and what she gets is nutritious. After my husband took her with him to walk down to the mailbox and to get the paper, she now looks forward to the walk. She has added distance to the walk by checking all the boundaries of the acre plus that is our front yard. She is also starting to ask for walks during the day. It is good for all of us.

i spend a lot on my 3 gals. i buy the best dog food, go to a homeopathic vet, travel 3 hrs to dental specialist, and buy lots of toys. they also get lots of love and attention. i also do their own grooming, even thought the clippers which i have several are expensive.
