Things You Can Learn from Your Dog

Florida’s Treasure Coast is a beautiful place to live, for both humans and dogs. We are surrounded by lust tropical landscaping and white sand beaches. It’s very normal for us to get caught up in our day-to-day lives and overlook things, or lose track of life’s little lessons. Luckily, our best friends can set us straight if needed. Here are a few things our canine pals may be trying to tell us.

Drink lots of Water

Many of us are guilty of not drinking enough water, especially in hot weather. Dogs, on the other hand, will rarely dehydrate themselves if there is plenty of water available. Take this tip from Fido and remember to stay hydrated.

Exercise Can Be Fun

Dogs enjoy running, jumping, swimming, and hiking naturally. Take a long walk with your dog, enjoy a game of Frisbee, or go to a nearby dog-friendly park. Chances are, you’ll both feel great afterwards.

Explore Your World

Have you ever noticed Fido becoming fascinated by something he walks past every day? Dogs take time to truly enjoy and explore their environments, and often love visiting new places. Many people get caught up in their day-to-day routines, and sometimes can miss things that are very close by. Check out that restaurant you always drive past and wonder about, or go visit the park you heard about at work.

Take Time To Play

Have you ever been working on a project, only to find your canine buddy interrupting you, perhaps with a toy in his mouth? Maybe Fido is trying to tell you something with all those playtime requests. Carve out time to do the things you love.

Enjoy the Simple Things

Our furry friends don’t need expensive things to make them happy. A tennis ball, a fetching stick, or a simple stuffed toy can make dogs wildly joyful. Sometimes we forget to appreciate the little things.

Loyalty

Have you ever had a bad day, and found that your canine buddy makes you feel better simply by leaning against you, or giving you a quiet, sympathetic “doggy kiss”. Loyalty is one of our canine friends’ best traits. Dogs stay with their masters through thick and thin, and are always there to offer their steadfast, unwavering support. Take time to appreciate those who have stood by you.

Life is short. Live it to the Fullest

This is likely Fido’s number one lesson. Take time to appreciate every day, and live the life you want to live.
