Being a mama, I’ve learned a thing or two over the years about keeping my kiddos happy and making them feel loved. It requires creativity. And effort. And the willingness to think outside of the box. However, the family dog is a different story. For man’s best friend, it requires very little to achieve complete canine contentedness. I’ll be honest and say, that at times, I wish other members of my family were as simple to figure out as the dog. I’ve discovered that while my human family’s happiness may depend on their mood (or even how the wind is blowing in my teenager’s case), the dog’s happiness can be achieved in three simple steps.
Feed Them the Right Food
There are few things in a pup’s life that bring as much joy as dinner time. Just as I put thought into what goes on the table in for my kiddos, I try to make the same effort with the dog. I want food options for her that contain high quality protein and are easy to pick up when I’m on my regular weekly shopping trip. That’s why I was so excited to recently discover that Walmart now sells Nature’s Recipe dog food for a low and convenient price.
That means that when I’m picking up groceries for dinner to keep my humans happy, I can simply stroll right over to the pet food aisle and find the high quality Nature’s Recipe dog food that contains no corn or wheat and is free of artificial flavors and preservatives to keep the pooch happy as well! It also means no more trips to the pet specialty stores just to ensure that the dog’s can have a no poultry by-product meal that she loves. With the ability to find the Nature’s Recipe dog food at my local Walmart, I can feel great about what I’m feeding everyone in the family and know that just as I pay attention to the ingredients for my children, I can now do the same for our four-legged friend by finding purposeful recipes that boast ingredients from nature, producing exactly what the dog needs to feel like her most vibrant self each and every day! But the truly best part is that I know when I serve Nature’s Recipe dog food, one member of the family will come running each and every time.
It’s easy to see that her discerning doggie taste knows that there is a difference when it comes to quality dog food and she clearly prefers the recipes from Nature’s Recipe that are crafted to bring out the best in her.
All I have to do is fill her bowl with Nature’s Recipe Grain Free Salmon Dry Dog Food and she’s there, ready to receive the love that only an amazing bowl of dog food delivers.
As she is served up a meal that I can feel great about putting in front of her, she knows that I’m giving her love in one of the best ways that I know how, with high quality dog food that allows her to have the energy to live her doggie life to the fullest.
That way, she has the base of amazing meals to help her make the most of the other ways that we’ve found to show her love.
Make Time for Play
Once meal time is over, it’s off to play time! By fueling her life with Nature’s Recipe dog food, we’re able to ensure she has the energy she needs to live life to the fullest and keep up with our family’s active lifestyle. The high quality ingredients in her dog food ensure that whether it’s throwing a stick or exploring our little corner of the world, we don’t have to worry whether or not she’ll have the energy to keep up with our never ending adventures.
Instead, she’ll be the one nudging us forward to complete the exercise and engage in the play that helps keep her strong and healthy.
And at the end of our adventures, she’ll be ready to return home for the final step portion of her activity filled day.
Reward Them With Love
Man may not live on bread alone but a dog sure can come close to living on Nature’s Recipe dog food and plenty of heart pumping exercise. But that doesn’t mean that at the end of the day they don’t want to simply sit back and absorb the love that they so willingly give. In our home, that means plenty of snuggle time, lots of rubbing and just a general closeness no matter where we are.
It means taking time to show affection and reward the loyalty that she so willingly offers with our own special brand of dog-approved love. Most of all, it means simply sharing a bond that is forged through time together and strengthened by something as simple as a hand on her head or a stroke of her fur.
Such simple actions, when combined with food and exercise, are really all she needs to make her life complete. At the end of the day, when she’s tired and content, all it takes is looking at her to see that she knows this life she has is amazing. It’s one filled with love, time and devotion….proving time and again that everything she needs, her humans can deliver.
