The Dogs Health and Wellbeing

No big surprise that the Kennel Club is the largest UK organisation devoted to dog health. With eight and a half million dogs kept as pets in the UK. Expert help is at hand. There is no one ‘perfect’ way to care for all dogs, but expert advice can be found at the RSPCA.

Research over many years has documented the ways that dogs are good for our health and wellbeing. But there is a lack of research that can prevent dogs from becoming unhealthy. As responsible dog owners we know that healthy food and exercise is so important. Yet our lifestyles do not always allow this. A 9 to 5 working day and a dog happy to be left alone is not a dog exercising. Needless to say there is a growing number of dog walking services available. Whilst this is a solution to one problem another arises.

Research About Dog Wellbeing

The bonds and attachments we form with our dogs is central to health and wellbeing. Namely because of stress. Stress can be a silent killer for humans and its no different for other animals. As humans we can eliminate as much stress from our daily routines easily. For dogs we have to accept that they are able to cope during our absence.

It’s two way traffic for releasing stress. Our dogs wag and smile upon our return and equally we’re rewarded.

Its all too easy to overfeed our dogs. Over compensating for the hours they have been left on there own. Don’t be tempted to share your dinner, throwing a few scraps can be fun and rewarding but stick to low fat natural treats. It may be worth noting that dogs are not that fussed about staying at home alone.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
