Here are a few best fun activities to do to improve physical fitness of your pet.

  • Jogging

    Jogging has always been considered a best exercise, if it has not been your thing in the past, then you have the reason to ease into it. More often than not, dogs love to run, all you need to do is to take time to build up endurance by starting with a couple of short jogs with your pet several times a week. And, gradually you can increase the length of the jog. Make sure you are warming up before you head out to jog, also keep an eye on your dog throughout to make sure he isn’t getting too tired. Like this you and your pet will have a routine to follow and along with that a nice way to spend quality time together.

  • Swimming

    Swimming is another activity which can help you improve your dog’s health. Any dog would be there who loves to splash in water, and water games are the most favorite games for dogs. The only thing which you need to see is the weather condition, of course swimming is not for winters. Only when the temperatures heat up, you can head to the beach or pool to make a splash. Swimming is an excellent low-impact exercise that can keep your dog not only moving, but also having fun. If you find your dog resisting getting into the water, throw a ball or a toy for him to retrieve and then see him have fun in the water.

  • Brisk Walking

    Not always is leisure walking is enough, sometimes you and your dog need to kick up your fitness level by picking up the pace of your walk. For that you can start brisk walking with your dog, you can aim for between 15 and 20 minutes per mile. This is a nice speed to get going, also, you will feel like you are putting in a good effort, however, your dog may begin to pant. Panting is fine, as long as your dog doesn’t start to exhibit labored breathing, then you should stop for a while to rest.

  • Agility Training

    Agility training is fun for dogs, besides being a great form of exercise. Agility training keeps your dog active while weaving through poles and running over planks help dogs develop their muscles. If you don’t have access to an agility course, don’t worry, you can use low walls and fences, fence posts and other existing objects for such training of your pets.

  • Disc Dogging

5 Hacks For A Busy Pet Parent

maria@sassydogfashions.com

Life isn’t always slow, gentle and merry like we always wish, sometimes it gets really rough, ugly and fast. We all know how it feels to have our weeks totally filled to the brim with appointments, outings, meetings and doing parenting tasks like preparing for breakfast, lunch or doing laundries. And to make things worse, sometimes nothing seems to work out right, so we keep on handling a crazy crisis that just keep on popping up from everywhere. We end up being the first one up and the last ones to call it a day and get in bed.

During times like this, owning a pet can be a big pain in the ass. Don’t get me wrong, we love our pets so much and can’t change them for anything in the world. However, it becomes very difficult to provide them with the love and care they need while juggling other more tasking issues at the same time. We know how that feels, and have written this article with the top 5 hacks to help make your life easier when it comes to taking care of your pet friend.

1. Do you have a dog that loves to dig up the yard?

We know the horror of coming back home after a busy day only to find your yard looking like a war front with big holes everywhere. Well to solve this, you can try making your dog its own personal “doggie sandbox” and to ensure they only do their digging business in there, you can reward them with a treat for using it. This way they easily learn where it is acceptable to dig.

2. Dealing with bad breath

We know how stressful and time consuming it is to get your dog to stay still and allow you to brush his teeth but ignoring this task because of your time constraints can only get worse as they grow older. Sooner or later their breath becomes so bad that they make you feel a little repulsive. Well, they are a few ways to solve this:

  • Sprinkle Parsley over their meal: the antimicrobial herb has healing properties that strengthen your dog’s immune system while still helping fight and get rid of bad breath.

  •  

  • Smear doggie toothpaste on your dog’s favorite toy: this way your dog gets totally clean teeth and fresh breath while playing with his favorite toy without even knowing it.

3. Handling the fur crises

Fur crises, one of the first crises you will encounter as a pet owner. You can try vacuums but I can assure you “it’s a waste of time” instead you want to get a rubber glove, wet it and then begin your cleaning. You simply run it over everywhere you believe there might be furs present and watch how easy it glues to the rubber glove making cleaning very easy and less time-consuming.

4. Do you have a fast eater?

If you have a dog that is a fast eater, then chances are high that you must have experienced the sheer anger of having them wanting more food just a few minutes after you fed them and they disturbing you for it. They will follow you, whine about it and make it nearly impossible for you to focus and carry out other tasks until you accept their demands. Well, the best way to solve this dog hostage situation is by simply placing some kind of obstacle in the middle of their food, this way they would have to eat around it. The obstacle can be anything or even their favorite toys and will help in slowing down their eating speed.

5. Handling bored dogs

How do you entertain your pets when you need to be out over an extended period of time to run errands or you just want to be left alone while in the house doing chores? Well, the best option for you is to simply get treat puzzle toys. Yes, it solves the problem of keeping them occupied for as long as you want to give you more time to do other things without worrying about your dog tearing up the house or doing crazy things out of boredom.

All dogs, regardless of size, breed, and age are curious animals that like to pull their leash and run after things. Also, dogs have their own way of walking, which can be too fast or too slow for humans, depending on the mood of the dog or the number of things that catch its fancy while walking. This behavior of dogs makes walking them very difficult and challenging. Walking a dog is even much more difficult if you have a big dog that is very energetic and very curious. When your dog does not have good leash manners, what happens is that instead of you walking your dog, your dog will be the one walking you.

Dogs are not born knowing how to walk with human, so if you want your dog to walk the way you want, you must train it. Teaching your dog leash manners can be challenging and can take some time but the result is a well-behaved dog that is a joy to walk with; therefore, everything you put into teaching your dog to walk nicely on the leash will be well worth it.

You can use various methods to teach your dogs to walk nicely on the leash because there is no single method that works for all dogs. However, below are some overall guidelines:

1. Pick The Right Leash And Collar

The leash and collar are the equipment needed to walk a dog, so it is obvious you have to get them first. Make sure you get a suitable Dog leash and collar that fits perfectly. Most importantly, make sure the collar is not too tight; you would not want the collar choking your dog. Also, if the collar is uncomfortable, your dog will try to get it off and there is no way your dog will walk nicely on a leash when the collar is too tight.

2. Teach your Dog Basic Commands

Some of the basic commands for dogs are ‘sit’, ‘stay’ and ‘come’. You should teach your dogs these commands before leash training. These commands come in handy when you take your dog for a walk. For example, ‘Sit’ and ‘Stay’ teaches your dog to stay still if you need to chat with a friend; when you have to wait in line; or when you have to wait before crossing a street.

3. Take Some Treats With You

The first advantage of giving your dog its favorite treat while you both go for a walk is that it will always look forward to walking with you. Treats can also be used to train your dog how to walk nicely on a leash. When you start walking, give it a treat at every few steps, then stop giving treats and walk some distance before you give the next treat. This will make it look forward to the next treat, thereby making it stay close to you and walk at a pace you like.

4. Pull Gently

Apply a gentle leash pressure anytime your dog is not walking, walking too slow, or walking too fast. Never forceful pull your dog. Reward with treats once it starts to come to you and when it starts behaving or walking the way you want.
