I have been a dog fan since I was born (at least I wish to believe so) but from 27 years of my life up to now, I have only had one and only dog. Hence, I’m not a dog expert like Cesar Milan but I understand Kiky had a great and happy life and I feel any dogs should also.
Yes, all dogs might differ and sometimes you simply can not prevent in providing them some tough love but the majority of the time the actual way in loving your pet is at the basis of demonstrating that you care deeply for them. Somehow.
When my family found her, she was 1 year old. My family had no experience in looking after dogs. We didn’t actually have any guides also. But what I know for certain, my family has whole lot of love to give and my parents are essentially a disciplinarian too. Love with discipline had seemingly become the core foundation in supplying Kiky what she wants to live for 14 years. Yes, it is still an remarkable age for a little dog like her. We’re forever thankful for her perseverance to live longer than she should.
I realize there’s nobody right way in loving your dogs. You may put her in an LV bag or only $1 cushion, they’ll love you as much. They do earn the name man’s best friend. I think human can not do as good as them.
The way to love your dog?
Love is essential in everything.
Love does not mean you’re spoiling them and keep giving them what they need.
If by enjoying the puppies you’re losing your sanity, then that’s not love. You might be better off without it.
What I can say in regards to my family is that we know we’ve given the best we can and Kiky knew just that too. We do not give her dog food. But that did not stop her from living over ten decades. We did not bathe her with puppy shampoo, she used what we used. And she had beautiful hair all over her body, shiny and smooth, even until the moment she died. She did not sleep on the ground or away from the home, she slept with us on the bed and she behaved really well rather than stepping on top of our mind and made us crazy with her behaviours.
I guess the secret in enjoying your dog is to recall he’s a being too. If your intention of owning a pet isn’t suitable for a practical purpose such as keeping someone from your yard, then you might think he/she as part of your loved ones. Exactly like bringing up a child, you would like him/her to be the best he/she is. A balance of discipline and fun is always needed.
Love your dog just like you love your self and each other. You will be surprised how you are going to be treated and thanked for. Though dog can not talk with words but they sure can communicate their gratitude even when they’ve moved on into the after-life. That is when you know you have loved your dog the ideal way.
