Great Ideas to Spoil A Man’s Best Friend
We all can agree that dogs are really our best friend, at least in the animal world. Around 45 percent of American households is counting a dog as part of their families, and this shows a lot of friendship going on in one’s household. Dogs are very smart animals to do several sorts of things, from guiding partially sighted person, to rescuing people held on mountains, and doing tricks that make us happy. Despite these abilities, dogs are innocent enough to accept and beg for food treats. Due to this, health and dental issues are experienced by many dogs due to being overweight and having the wrong diet.
Yes it is undeniable that we find it hard to resist to offer to our dogs some pet scraps from our dinner tables, or even sharing a snack every time they fix to us those pleading eyes. When you are in the situation when you find yourself giving in to spoil and indulge your dog, even if your head tells you it is not a good thing, your best solution is to give your pet an alternative treat.
Giving your dogs different kinds of treats and to associate chosen words or phrases to go with them may take some time of training, but investing your effort and time to teach your pet will pay off in the long run.
Let us take a look at some easy alternatives to treat and spoil your dogs without their health being damaged.
Generally, dogs love food, but giving him or her your attention is just as welcoming, and so this is our number one alternative idea. Usually you would notice that your dog has fun in going to a certain spot in your yard or outside your house, and so you can visit that spot with your pet, and use a word or phrase that your pet will associate as his treat.
Another alternative treat is to give your pet a new toy because just like children, dogs never tire of being introduced to a new thing to play with. Squeaky toys are also enjoyable for dogs, if you can stand the noise it makes, and also be mindful of the toy before it becomes a choke hazard to your pet. There are many toys that are inexpensive that you and your pet can play with for a tug of war, or even just a toy that your pet can snuggle with.
Another alternative treat for your pet dog are tasty snacks like cold carrots and cooked sweet potato that are typical dog treats but dogs love too, not to mention the vitamins they can get.
