Pet-Friendly Bacon Bubble Machine
Activity description
If you have a yard, and feel like your dog deserves an amazing treat for being the most cheerful dog ever, then it's time to pull out the pet-friendly bacon bubble machine. This little machine has several hoops that rotate clockwise, dipping into edible, pet-friendly bacon bubble solution. The machine circulates air which in turn blows the bubbles automatically, creating a non-stop supply of bacon bubbles that your dog can chase and bite at throughout the yard. It's an exciting treat, one that is sure to reward your dog for being such a cheerful delight to be around all the time! Hooray!
Step
1
Set up the fun
First and foremost, do not purchase any product without reading the warnings, reviews and ingredients. Make sure you read it all again upon receiving the item. Follow the instructions provided with the packaging. You should place the batteries into the machine, fill the reservoir up with bubble solution to the fill line, and then turn it on. Ensure the machine is elevated, such as on a table outside, so the dog can't run into it accidentally.
Step
2
Enjoy watching your companion
Now you can just sit back and relax as your dog has an exciting time running around the yard, chasing edible bacon bubbles! Pour yourself a drink, get some snacks, or just laugh as your dog does backflips through the air to try and get some bubbles. Remember to check the machine every so often, to see how much solution is left. Ideally, you want to stop the machine once the solution inside has run out, so you're not having to waste any.

Activity description
If you're busy with work, and your dog is very clingy, it may be useful to get your dog into doggy day care. They can socialize with other humans and dogs alike, learn some manners, get some play time in, and be well-taken care of while you're working. It may seem like a hard thing to do at first, but once they get used to the fun, their cheerful disposition will shine through! Even if you're not working, you just really feel like your dog may benefit from hanging out with other dogs, you can take them to doggy day care for a couple of hours anyway, just while you clean the house and do laundry. This gives you a chance to pick up a nice toy on the way to pick up the dog too!
Step
1
Do your research
Not all doggy day care centers are the same. Some of them ask that you bring in proof of vaccination, especially for Rabies. Others require a full medical record. Some day care centers only allow for 2-4 hour stays, while others cater to 8-10 hours. So check with your local day care center and see if you can leave your dog there for a little while, just while you run some errands, meet a friend for coffee, or grab lunch with your partner. Make sure to call in advance with any questions! A recommendations from a friend as to their favorite daycare may be an easy way to make a choice.

Take you pal to doggy daycare
Once you have all the details and information you need, and have planned accordingly, it's time to take the dog to doggy day care! Remember to use the leash to guide the dog inside, and ask if they need to hold onto it for the time being, or if you can take it home with you. Make sure to give your dog plenty of love and kisses before you go for the next 2-8 hours and when it is pick-up time, praise them for bringing their cheer to the daycare!

Activity description
Snap the leash on, and help your dog into the car. Then go get some errands done! Go to the bank, the tellers love seeing a dog riding shotgun in cars. Go get a coffee from the drive-thru and maybe get a tiny treat for the dog. Mail something in the post office, since it only takes five minutes. Depending on the store, you may even be able to take the dog inside the grocery store, or bookstore. But for sure, you can take your dog into the pet store to pick up a new collar or toy to play with later!
Step
1
Get the dog In the car
Snap the leash on the dog's collar, and open the car door. Help your dog up, if needed. Make sure your pup is comfortable in the seat, and use a seat belt, if the dog allows it. Then it's time to get into the car and start driving to your first destination! A few reminders, don't place any open containers near the dog, that includes in the cup holders. Also, consider slightly opening the window so your dog can take in the view as you drive.
Step
2
Run errands
From here on out, it's time to take care of some errands. Go to the bank window so your dog can make the teller laugh, go to the drive-thru together, but make sure to get your dog a treat, and ensure you don't go home without a visit to the pet shop where you can pick up a brand new toy, bed, collar, or treat.
Step
3
Practice safety
Also, remember it's not a good idea to leave your dog in the car for an extended period of time (more than 10 minutes). Especially on a hot day (do not leave them at all on a hot day)! So try to pick errands that you can do from the comfort of your car. And double-check the stores you need to visit, some of them allow dogs inside.

Make sure to pick out an animal movie!
