5 Ways to Encourage Paw-sitive Behaviour in Your Dog

Pet parents know that your fur babies can be a handful, especially when they get bored or want attention. Luckily, there are lots of ways to encourage positive behaviour.

Spend time together

Make sure to spend quality time together with your dog regularly, because when they feel that you care about them and love them, they will reciprocate that feeling. Letting them trust you and get close to you will strengthen your bond with your pooch.

Daily exercise

Depending on the size and how hyperactive your dog is will determine how much exercise they need in a day to keep them healthy, both physically and mentally. For example, a Collie will need more exercise than a Pug. Get them out for W-A-L-K-I-E-S, play with them in the garden, and generally make sure they are mentally and physically stimulated!

Teach them the basics

Teaching them basic obedience at a young age or when you get them can help exercise their brain and will build a stronger relationship. It enables you to manage your dog more easily, which means that they can be controlled and become part of family gatherings.

Introduce them to other dogs and family members

Dogs who spend a lot of time exercising and interacting with other people and dogs tend to be friendly and can develop good behaviours. Getting your dog to be sociable makes them healthier and happier and will ultimately make your life, as a pet parent, much easier.

Recognise positive behaviour

Give your dog a reward, like our delicious salmon and chicken treats, every time your best bud shows good behaviour. That said, it doesn’t have to be treats all the time, it can be cuddles, petting, or simply praising them. They love to hear what a good dog they are!
