Keep your Emerald pup happy with these top tips!

It's well known that dogs are a man's best friend. If you have a furry BFF and want to keep them happy, we suggest reading this how-to guide! Whether you spend too much time at work and fear your dog is getting lonely, or just want to read up on a few tips to keep your canine mate cheerful, we're here to help. From taking your pet on daily strolls and spoiling them with little treats, to arranging a social puppy party and keeping on top of their health, we have found out everything you need to know in order to keep your dog happy!

Take your pup for daily walks

Keeping your furry BFF active is one of the best ways to ensure their happiness and wellbeing. If you’re in full-time work and spend most of your day out of the house, treat your pup to a generous walk every day in order to ensure their wellbeing, health and happiness. Depending on your dog’s breed, they may require more or less exercise than others. If you’re unaware how much exercise your dog needs, do a little research online or check with your local Emerald vet.

Puppy parties

Arranging a puppy party can be a great way to keep your canine friend happy. If your pet is kept alone at home during the day, spending some time each week to socialise and play with other dogs is a great way to keep them upbeat, as well as giving them some much-needed exercise. A puppy party doesn’t have to be as complicated as it may sound. Simply call up your fellow dog-loving friends and arrange to meet up at a local canine-friendly beach or park for a few hours of run around fun!

Treat your dog

It doesn’t hurt spoiling your furry best friend every now and again. In fact, it can actually be quite beneficial. Whether you have an adorable puppy or charming older dog, treats can be used in a variety of ways to train your pet, from teaching simple behavioural techniques to new, exciting tricks. Ask an Emerald dog trainer what the best ways to treat your pup are!

Regular health checks

Healthy is happy, so to ensure they’re in good shape, take them for regular health checks at your local Emerald vet. Although seeing the vet may not be at the top of your pups ‘happiness list’, it’s an important step to take if you want your dog to stay happy. By keeping up with regular checks, an experienced vet can identify any health issues your pup may have, before they become problematic. We also suggest having pet insurance; this is a great way to look after your pets health, without having to fork out on huge and unwanted bills.
