Dogs are happy animals, plain and simple. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make them happier with a little trick, treat or fun activity, a dog, also known as human’s best friend, is happiest when he’s healthy. Ensuring your dog’s physical and mental well-being means keeping him stimulated, even when you are not home. Spending time with your pup and providing him with a healthy lifestyle is key to your dog’s fulfillment.

Train your dog :

This will not only increase his mental stimulation, but also strengthen the bond between you and your pooch by making your expectations for him clear.  If you aren’t sure what training would benefit your dog most, contact a Certified Pet Dog Trainer.

Maintain your dog’s confidence:

Believe it or not, your pup does have self-esteem, and there are things that you, as his owner, can do to keep it up. Praise your dog when he has mastered a new trick, along with other accomplishments.

Remember that your tone of voice is the key to communication with your pet, praise for him should sound different than a command.

Feed your dog a nourishing, balanced diet:

An animal is happiest when he can exercise, and to do so, he must eat healthful food. What you feed your pooch depends on his age, energy level and potential allergies. Organic, grain free kibble is always best if you are going to go the commercial route. However, some veterinarians also swear by feeding dogs “people food”.

Dog-approved people foods include:

  • Raw, unsalted peanut butter
  • Baby carrots
  • Pumpkin
  • Green beans
  • Sliced apples
  • Oatmeal

Set aside at least two hours a day to give your Pit Bull attention:

While this breed is known for his loyalty and devotion, he needs a lot of quality time with you so he doesn’t get bored and destructive.
The high-energy Pit Bull isn’t the type you can leave alone or put outside for the entire day.

This athletic breed enjoys swimming, running, playing fetch or frisbee, along with most other sports.
Because he is a social butterfly, a well-trained Pit Bull appreciates human interaction, including time with your friends, family and even strangers, so be sure to get him out of the house.

 Try to play one of his favorite games or give him one of his favorite toys:

Take him out for runs and walks:

spend time in nature together, give her special treats and belly rubs and pet her while she lays next to you.

 Make the most of your daily exercise:

Walks are not only good for your dog’s physical health but also their emotional wellbeing. These fun and healthy outings allow your animal friend to experience new things, get excited and burn off any excess energy. Also, they provide peaceful quality time perfect for bonding with your pooch. But remember if possible to switch up the route now and again, near your home to keep this precious “together time” interesting and energising. If you are not self-isolating because of coronavirus, make the most of your daily exercise ensuring your dog gets enough time out of the house to stretch his legs by other family members also taking the dog out with them for their daily exercise.

Have a spa day:

 We’re not the only ones who like to be pampered! Dogs build up a lot of tension and can use a great spa day. But you don’t have to break the bank taking him to a fancy salon, there are plenty of ways to make your own fantastic spa experience at home.
