What does your dog really want from you? Have you ever wondered? Is she looking for treats, hugs, a car ride? Something more, something less? What every dog wants turns out to be super simple.
Dogs want you! If you come with treats, games, walks, that is a bonus, but every dog really just wants to spend as much time as they can with their human. This is why we are happy to just lie at your feet or go on an adventure as long as we are with you.
We live in the moment, not worrying about the past or the future. In the moment if you are taking us for a nice walk, we are thankful to be out and about with you. Our human is our focus. Humans make us happy, and care for us.
Playtime with your pup is super fun and important. Dogs love to play, but if their human joins in the game and has fun too, they are over the moon happy! Even a game of chase or hide and seek is super fun for us and for you. Try to include even just five minutes of play a day if you can.
Sports are such a fun way to spend time with us. They also help us both learn to communicate better with each other. The ribbons and winning at the game are things humans really want, but in the end, being together is what matters. Playing a game together, and spending time with each other is very special. It is something that only you and your dog share together.
Food also makes our humans special. You provide us with food, water, and shelter, the basics we need to live. We may not know how important good food is for us, but every time we receive food it is a gift because we don’t have to find it on our own.
What does your dog really want from you? Take time every day to show your pup how much you love her. Do something fun together, or just hang out doing nothing, but together. Time we get to spend with you is all we want. We don’t ask for anything fancy, expensive, or special, just time with you.
