  1. Exercise your dog regularly

Regular exercise is important for your dog’s well-being and happiness. Start slowly if you are just getting into the habit of walking your dog.

Keep an eye on how they react, and as they get stronger, add longer walks. Your dog should be content, not drained. Research on your dog’s food is so important because some breeds require more exercise than others.

A walk or run is the simplest exercise for your dog, and most dogs will need at least one of these daily. To keep your dog stimulated while you are away from home during the day, give them a variety of toys.

  1. Try giving your dog a massage

This is a step up from snuggling on the couch, and massage isn’t just for humans. It can alleviate your dog’s anxiety, improve their circulation, and strengthen your relationship. To get your dog to relax, start by petting them all over and speaking softly.

Massage their neck muscles in a circular motion with the flat of your palm from the top of their head down. Massaging in a circular motion, work your way down to the shoulder area, which is often a favorite spot because dogs can’t get there on their own.

Massage the front legs and chest from the front, but be careful of their paw pads and move on if they don’t like being touched in any area.

Make small circular movements along the back on either side of the spine as you return up to the shoulders. If they enjoy it, proceed to the base of the tail and down the back legs before reaching their paws.

  1. Play a Game of Fetch and Tug of War with Your Dog 

Fetch

Even though it may seem uninteresting to us, a brief game of fetch is a lot of fun for your dog. You might think that if you threw the same toy ten times in the same direction, they would get bored with it, but my dog doesn’t care.

Fetch is a simple way to have more fun with your dog, and it’s pretty easy to entertain them; you toss a toy and let them take care of everything.

Tug of War 

Dogs love to play tug of war. It’s fun, mentally stimulating, and a good workout all at once. Additionally, contrary to popular belief, tugging does not make your dog more dominant or aggressive.

Make sure that your dog knows to “drop it” and that the game stops when their teeth touch your hand.

Also, remember to put away any rope toys at the end of the game; If your dog swallows all of the strings, it could be risk.

  1. Visit Family and Friends with Your Dog

Invite your dog to a social gathering. Inviting your dog to a social gathering is an easy way to make your dog happy. Bring your dog along the next time you go out to see friends or family.

Dogs are social animals, and instead of going to a dog park, which can be scary and over stimulating, give your dog a chance to interact with other dogs in a controlled environment.

The majority of dogs enjoy going on rides, so surprising them with a fun social event is a great bonus.

  1. Choose a Vet You Feel Comfortable

Many dogs despise going to the vet, but choosing a vet you feel at home with can make a big difference. Your dog (happy and healthy) will pick up on your anxiety before you even enter the veterinarian’s office.

Don’t underestimate how much of a difference a great vet staff can make. Find a veterinarian you can trust and who will treat you and your dog well.
