5 Ways To Strengthen Your Bond With Your Dog

#3 – Pet Your Dog

Most of us don’t need to be told to pet our dogs, but when life gets busy and we find ourselves overwhelmed with people things, we might forget to just take time and give our pooch a pat on the head. Make sure you take just a few minutes to sit and pet your dog; spend time with them and let them know you are still there for love and affection.

#4 – Try To Understand Canine Behavior

The more you learn about canine behavior, the better you’ll be able to understand why your dog does all of the things he or she does. Dogs are individuals with unique personalities, but there are certain behaviors that apply to all dogs. Learn about how dogs communicate, how they see the world and how they handle stress and pressure and you’ll be better able to understand your dog’s side of the story when he seemingly misbehaves.
