The past year has been the busiest of my life. Honestly, I’m not sure where it went. And my poor doggies have felt that business. So recently I set out to find some ways to show them some love, even on the busiest of days. Now, I’m sharing those ideas with you!
- Take you pup for a ride. While it’s not advisable to leave your dog in the car, use your judgement on this one. My dog loves to go for a ride. I like to include her in very short errands, particularly ones where I can utilize drive throughs, like the pharmacy. She smiles as we drive and I’m accomplishing things I needed to get done anyway.

- Brush her during the evening news. While I’m not an expert groomer, my dog loves to be brushed. I don’t have a ton of time to dedicate to a grooming session, so I try and brush her for a few minutes during the evening news a few times a week. There’s usually a small period of time while I’m waiting for dinner to cook in the oven or water to boil that’s perfect for this activity.
- Feeding them great food. Percurean has some amazing options that will keep your dog, or cat, going strong for years on end. Their formulations are made with ingredients from a trusted network of farmers, ranchers, and producers. They are the healthiest, high quality, and flavorful ingredients.

4. My dog’s favorite thing in the world is frisbee. She will do anything to play frisbee. She carries is around all day in hopes that someone will throw it for her. I’m outside watering the plants or tending the garden at least once a day. During this time I multitask and make sure I throw the frisbee for her, at least a few times.
5. The most important thing you can do for your dog? Show them love. I have a deaf dog and the fact that he can’t hear what I’m saying really brings home the importance of body language and showing affection. Simply bending over, calling him to me, and petting his head for a few seconds makes him a happy pup.
