5. Give Them A Few Minutes Of Undivided Attention
It’s important to remind our dogs how special they are in our lives. Even though they might not understand the words of endearment we often give them, there are other ways for them to know.
Even taking just 15 minutes out of your day to pet your dog or play tug of war with their toys will do wonders for their happiness and satisfaction. Dogs are naturally social creatures and love to interact with you.
The least we can do is put down whatever it is we’re doing and, for a couple of minutes, give them all the attention in the world.

Dogs can easily get anxious when they don’t know what’s going on in their surroundings or if there’s an amount of uncertainty to their day. Our pups are creatures of habit, and they’re also very observant.
Making sure we give them that security of knowing the general time they’ll eat or go outside for a walk is something that will ease that anxiety and fear.
Maintaining a flexible schedule while giving them short activities throughout the day will help keep them from getting bored, as well.
