Whether you have a puppy or an adult dog, or whether you have been together for a day or for ten years, there are always some special things you can do to enrich the close relationship between the two of you. When you think about it, relationships are the same in what they require to grow and flourish, whether they’re human-to-human or dog-to-human. Indeed, books about improving your relationship with a partner, child, or friend offer very similar advice to books about bonding with your dog. These ideas, from aus online pokies, that follow will help you improve your relationship with your dog (no judgment if you try them on your human friends, too).
- Spend time together
A relationship is about being with one another and sharing experiences, so spending time together will strengthen your bond — especially if you spend that time in enjoyable ways. Try going out for a sniffari and putting in some quality playtime with your pup.
- Communicate clearly
Misunderstandings and confusion are the enemies of good relationships, so be as clear as you can when you communicate with your dog. Be consistent with your training signals. Since dogs tend to learn visual signals faster than vocal cues, use the former when possible. Dogs pay attention to what you do more than to what you say, which means that you should attend to what you do when you communicate with them. You’ll feel closer when there’s greater understanding between the two of you.
- Put a little love into their food.
The way to many a dog’s heart is through their stomach, and preparing healthy, tasty food for your dog shows you care. You can choose to cook for your dog or simply focus on providing the best nutrition in the most delicious way possible.
- Train your dog
Well-trained pups are allowed greater freedom. If they come when called, they get to spend more time off leash. If they don’t go for the food on the table, they can stay nearby during meals. Training also reduces frustration because when you ask your dog to do something they’ve been taught to do, they know exactly what you want. Just like playing the demos at casinos en ligne france before playing for real money.
- Be playful
There’s a reason I called one of my books Play Together, Stay Together. Scientists have observed that across a variety of species, parents who play with their children have the closest relationships with them, and this also seems true in relationships between people and dogs. Playing games and having fun together strengthens your bond.
- Remain calm
Losing your temper, yelling, or freaking out in any way upsets everyone in the vicinity of the emotional storm, even if it doesn’t have anything to do with them. No matter what’s going on, exude a sense of tranquility so your dog can count on you to keep your cool.
