Little Ways to Show Your Pet You Love Them.jpg

What do you give somebody who offers you full and unconditional love?

We asked around and came up with this list of not-so-obvious-ways to show your pet how much they mean to you. It’s the little things that count after all!

· Cook them breakfast.

Periodically adding a cooked egg to your dog’s morning meal can help keep their coat shiny.

· Be courteous.

Simple phrases like please, thank you, good morning and good night may mean the world to them.

· Visit the veterinarian.

Caring for a pet means caring for their health, too. Don’t forget to schedule an annual checkup!

· Plan a spa day.

Pamper them with a good brushing, bath, nail trimming, teeth brushing and ear cleaning!

· Write a poem.

Pets can interpret tone of voice, and what sounds more loving than a poem?

· Take an adventure.

Go for a car ride. Take a new route around the neighborhood. Wander through the woods. Just explore.

· Use positive reinforcement.

Every animal, be it dog, cat or human, loves praise and adoration for a job well done.

· Get on their level.

Love is built on trust, and getting down on all fours to play reassures pets of your affection.

· Make a present.

Store-bought toys are fun, but handmade gifts inherently have that little something special.

· Be supportive.

They’re always there for us, which is why we owe them cuddles, care and a leg to lean on.
