It’s hard to measure how much dogs enhance our lives. They provide companionship and joy on a daily basis, and most of us would consider them a part of the family. That’s why, if you’re wanting to boost your dog’s quality of life, it’s not a weird thing. Why not give your loyal pup the best life you can, even if it’s a smidge elaborate? Here are a few ways you can make your dog’s life more luxurious:
Start with the Bed
According to Sleep.org, dogs spend an average of 12 to 14 hours a day sleeping. Therefore, it only makes sense that your pup’s life of luxury would begin by you providing them with a top-notch bed so that they can maximize these all-important hours.
Since the most comfortable dog beds on the market can be expensive, you want to make sure you choose the right one. Consider your dog’s body type, research the best beds available, and pick one that fits their body type and needs. For instance, if your dog is a large breed or a senior, they might benefit most from an orthopedic bed. If they are a smaller breed, look into self-warming or heated beds.
If you’re going for total luxury, don’t stop at their primary bed. You could even get an additional bed for the outdoors as well as one for lounging in the living room—or anywhere else you two lounge together. That way, your pooch can rest comfortably at any time of the day without missing out on time with you!
Buy Quality Pet Food
Your dog can’t live the good life if they’re not in good health. As diet has a significant impact on a person’s health and well-being, so it is with canines. Make sure you’re giving your pup the best food you can find. Their food should have the best ingredients and provide optimal nutrition. Learn how to read pet food labels and find the perfect option for your furry friend.
Along those same lines, it’s crucial to learn what foods could be toxic to your dog. As Medical News Today explains, you should steer clear of a number of people-foods, like cherries, avocados, and grapes. While a little sample might not sound like a big deal, the wrong choice could wind you and Fido up at the vet’s office.
Give Them Clean Water
Your pet’s dish is one of the top germ hot spots in the home. Give your furry friend the cleanest, greatest tasting water with GOpure Pet! The GOpure purifies and enhances the water, prevents slimy build-up in the bowl, and helps prevent grass burn.
The pod comes with a suction-cup holder to adhere pod to the bottom of the bowl. When you drop the capsule into tap water, millions of microscopic pores go to work. The GOpure Pod has an advanced ceramic core that is made from “nature’s filter” or diatomaceous earth - plus a silver element, which promotes an ionic exchange and eliminates bacteria.
The silver element also helps to maintain the hygiene of the ceramic over the course of its usage. The ceramic core acts as a magnet to attract impurities while releasing valuable trace minerals. The pod has antibacterial properties and has the ability to kill 99.97% of E. Coli germs, as well as removes 97.00% of chlorine, nitrate, nitrite, fluoride, & metals like copper, lead, manganese, iron.
Healthy hydration and good nutrition is essential for your dog to live its best life. You can help keep them from getting sick by providing plenty of fresh, clean water with GOpure for pets.
Go to the Park
Outings with your pup can be big fun, and just as being outdoors benefits all of us humans, dogs are meant to spend lots of time outside. With that in mind, look for ways to spend more time in nature with your pup.
Find a good dog-friendly park near your home (or venture to a dog park), and try to take your pup there regularly so that they can enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds of nature. It’s best for dogs to get exposure to the outdoors on a daily basis.
If you can’t take Fido to the park every day, at least take them for a walk on your street or enjoy some enrichment activities with your dog. Various toys and games will be wonderful fodder for bonding!
Pamper Them Up
Just like you, your canine companion loves to be clean and feel fresh. Be sure to regularly bathe your pup, brush through their fur, wipe down their paws, and clip their nails. To save money, you can learn to groom them yourself, though it doesn’t hurt to visit a professional every now and then.
You know you want your pup to live high on the hog, so make it happen! Get them a high-quality bed (or three), and feed the best quality food you can find. Also, head to the park and/or for walks around the neighborhood, and keep up with grooming. In no time, your furry sidekick will be living the pampered life they deserve.
