How to make your dog happy in 3 easy steps

During the summer as a child we would often complain to my mother that we were bored. Her response was “I’m bored too, now get outside and play” and that is exactly what we did. Otherwise she would have us washing windows or cleaning the bathroom. Dogs are not that different so let’s explore how to make your dog happy in 3 easy steps.

Keeping your dog busy will also keep your dog happy. For those times that you leave your dog alone give him a chewy or a Kong filled with a treat. You can help make your dog happy by leaving them with their favorite toy.
