A relaxing day with your dog
Both dogs and humans have a great need for relaxation. A relaxing day to spend together is a very nice project. Spend a whole day in slow motion, stress-free and pressure-free, just relaxing and enjoying the good things in life. And when you have a dog, it’s even better, because they also need moments of relaxation from time to time.
Here are 6 ideas for a perfect relaxing day with your dog…
1. Take a day off: This is the obvious thing to do if you really want to relax: don’t go to work. Ask for a day off; this will allow you to get the most out of it with your dog.
2. Nap in the open air: If the weather allows it (in case of a heat wave, avoid doing it between the end of the morning and 4 in the afternoon), take a good nap for 2 in the open air. There are many places where you can nap during the day, depending on where you live: beach, country, park, etc.
3. A longer walk: Take your dog on a longer walk than usual, ideally in a natural setting to combine relaxation, wonder and fresh air. Walking can be a good way to start physical activity. All the elements and objects found in their walking environment can serve as a pretext for play and physical activity. For example:
* walk and jump down a small ravine
* walk with improved route between stones and trees
*runs up the stairs
* running in a public park
* play with a tree branch
* an extended game of catch or bring
* or even hide and seek
4. Massages and wellness: How about dedicating this day of relaxation to wellness treatments for you and your four-legged friend? Obviously, if your budget allows, make an appointment at a massage parlor and do the same for your pooch. Indeed, there are canine massage professionals, but you can massage it yourself by learning the basic movements.
5. Full of caresses and tenderness: Petting your dog is an art! Beyond the caresses that we give our dog every day, sometimes even unconsciously and mechanically, there are others that we give looking at your animal directly in the eyes in search of a real connection. Just be careful not to pet him where he doesn’t like to be touched too much; for some dogs it is the head, while for others it is the rump.
6. Cocooning: You can just spend the day relaxing at home, doing nothing, enjoying the comfort of the couch and watching TV with your dog on your lap. Offer him some treats (without going overboard) and let him know how much you love him.
There are so many ways that you can connect with your furry friend. Think of something else please.
