7 Ways to Make Your Dog LOVE
The deepest desire of every dog owner is to be loved by their dog. From the moment you see a well-trained, loyal
dog as a child you want your very own - a pet that will follow your every move and protect you above all else.
But, sometimes, we mislead ourselves as to what will actually make our dogs love us. It's not just about
There needs to be discipline and clear leadership in the household. But, after you've taken control and
identify your dog's temperament, these tips will make that
relationship better than ever.
1. Treat Discipline - Avoid giving any table scraps to your dog. It's a confusing
message for them in regards to who's in charge and it can lead to an unhealthy dog, who is in turn not a happy dog.
But, a treat every now and then will always make them love you that much more.
2. Playing Every Day - When you've been at work all day, the last thing you may want
to do is play with your dog. But, it's very important to play at least once a day, for an hour or so. Even if that
is just throwing a toy and playing fetch while watching TV, your dog doesn't mind.
3. Go on Rides - If you establish yourself as the clear pack leader of
your home, your dog will feel privileged to be taken with you on trips in the car or to the store. If it's possible
to take your dog with, take them.
4. Interact on Their Level - One of the easiest ways to ingratiate
yourself toward a dog is to get down on their level and talk to them and give them attention. If a dog is left to
its own devices on the floor, especially if it is not allowed on the couch, it will feel left out.
By joining your dog on the floor and at its bed, you can share even more special bonding time that
will show the dog that you care. This is one of the best dog training
tips to try out if you want to have better bonding.
5. Walks - Never underestimate the power of a good walk. Even if your
dog appears to be only interested in sniffing that bush behind the tree on the corner, they are extremely excited
to be out of the house with you. Make sure to occasionally get their attention while walking.
6. Grooming and Health - It may not seem like it right now, but your dog appreciates
the time you spend bathing, grooming and caring for it. Even if the dog hates the bath, she loves being clean and
she knows who does that for her.
If nothing else, a healthy dog is a happy dog and that happiness will almost always be directed at you. Many
times, a grouchy dog is one that is in poor health without enough exercise. That is always something you can
7. Display Positive Feelings - A dog reacts to your body language and emotions far
more than your actions and your words. You can say "I love you" to a dog, but it won't have any meaning unless
you really mean it and show it.
So, truly feel the emotions that you're presenting to the dog. Spend time with her without being annoyed by
it.s Don't be impatient or gruff, and always allow your dog to play. Sure, you need to be the alpha leader, but
you also need to show her that you care.
Having a dog is a symbiotic relationship. The time you spend with her is based as much on what she gets from
you as what you get from her. So, if you truly want your dog to love you, you simply need to love her.
More often than not, someone who spends the most time with the dog and loves her significantly will be able to
enjoy that level of love and devotion we always dream of.
