Through developing a loving and caring relationship with your dog your are gaining their trust. This in turn will help them to respond better to you when you are training them. As a result of this it will improve the quality of life you have together in the future.
There are plenty of activities that you could use that will ultimately help you to build a much stronger relationship with your dog now and in the future. Below are just a few that we feel are really worth looking at doing.
1. Go For A Picnic
Find a park that is dog friendly to where you live. Then pack yourself and your dog a lunch and head on over to it. Doing this offers you the chance to get some fresh air whilst spending quality time together and of course not forgetting to enjoy a healthy meal as well.
