Quick ways for crazy busy people to show their dogs more Love
Snuggle in bed. Wake up 5 or 10 minutes early each morning and cuddle or play with your dog before you get out of bed.
Pal around together. No matter what you’re doing around the house, try to make your dog be part of it. Invite her to sit on your lap or lie at your feet while you work or read or watch TV.
Give 30-second massages. Dogs don’t really understand pats on the head or hugs. Instead, spend 30 to 60 seconds gently stroking and massaging alternating areas of your dog’s body.
Take mini-walks. Dogs absolutely love walks, so even if you only have five or 10 minutes to spare, the more often you can take your dog out for a walk, the better. Of course, when you have more time, it’s important to give him opportunities to sniff and explore on your walks.
Take him along. Whenever possible bring your dog with you — to work, when you’re running errands, on road trips and in any situation where he’ll be safe and welcome. Minimize home alone time.
