Who wouldn't like a morning or afternoon pampering? Dogs are no different, they will relish all the attention put on them. But you don't have to break the budget splurging on an expensive day spa. You can make your own at home. Get everything ready, and start with a doggie bath and blow-dry, followed by a nice doggie massage. You could even sneak in an ear check or a nail trim while you are at it. Use the coconut oil to gently coat your hands while you pat or massage your little mutt. Both your hands and your dog's coat will get soft and glow with health after this treatment. You can finish off with a yummy dog treat, and they can settle in to watch 101 Dalmatians for the afternoon. Sounds like a blissful activity and one your dog will surely love! This activity not only keeps your dog in good health but strengthens the bond between you.
Who better to play with a dog than another dog? Choose a dog that is compatible with yours, and then invite them over for an hour or two. At first, the dogs will make their own fun, just provide a ball or two, perhaps a bit of rope and let them make their own rules. When they get a little bored, you can follow up with some bubbles to chase, followed by a high tea - okay, maybe more like a toy that dispenses food. It is important for dogs to socialize with other dogs as it teaches them appropriate social behavior. It also burns off a bit of energy as well and keeps your dogs entertained. Keep an eye on how they are playing and make sure your Aussie Silk Terrier isn't getting too bossy. Other than that, let them wear themselves out.
