Simple tips for happy pets. #GetHappyHealthy

babybackyard copyWhile regular vet visits and proper nutrition are the foundation, your pet’s mental well being is just as important! Luckily keeping your pet happy can be a lot of fun for both of you. Today we are talking about the special extras. You know, the little things that can really make a difference. It doesn’t take much to pamper your pet!

Here are our top 3 ways to give your pet the little extras that make a big impact! Be sure to read to the end of the article too, Hill’s is giving away dog and cat “little extras” bundles.

dogtreats1. Special Treats. Everyone loves a treat now and then, and pets are no exception!

Baby tends to like fruit flavored treats more than meat flavored treats. Learn your pet’s preference so you can make treat time even more special.

Of course when giving treats it is important to know the right amount to give so your pet will stay healthy and happy. Hill’s has a handy guide for using treats wisely, including how to pick the best treats for your pet.

2. Play time. Play is a great way to bond with your pet. It’s also a wonderful way for your pet to exercise both mind and body! There are even treat dispensing toys to help motivate play! Toys that squeak or have bells provide added stimulation, and will get your pet’s attention. You can even help keep your pet from becoming bored by rotating toys and not putting them all out at once. Baby always loves to discover “old friends” now and then.

Play time doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive. One of Baby’s favorite “toys” is a sock. She enjoys playing tug of war with it, chasing it like a ball, and even just playing with it on her own. She also has a favorite ball that keeps her busy and happy. Just be sure to avoid toys that are too small or have small parts that can come off and be swallowed by your pet.

Baby's favorite ball.

3. Grooming Time! Grooming isn’t just about keeping your pet’s coat healthy and tangle free. It’s a great time to bond with each other. Starting a grooming routine early will help your dog get used to, and start to enjoy, being brushed.

But grooming can be about more than just brushing your dog’s coat! You can also have fun with little extras like a fancy collar with a matching leash, or even outfits if your dog likes dressing up.
