“Show a dog an ounce of love and he will be your friend for life.”
Dogs are a man’s best friend, which goes without saying. Pets take so little from us but give unconditional love in return. As an owner of a dog and also his/ her best friend and care taker, we must provide them with unconditional care and love they deserve. But at times we fall short of doing so as we don’t realize how to really do so. So here we have a few tips, tricks and hacks that will do just the same!
Take a look at these hacks and help out your pooch in the best and easiest way possible.
Upset Tummy: If your dogs is suffering from digestive problems (if you have figured out that it isn’t a serious condition), try this quick and easy homemade formula. Cook a homemade meal of base chicken and rice to help your furry friend get rid of an upset tummy. Vets have recommended this for years.
*Garnish is also subjective to your little friend’s preference!:P*
Stinky Carpet: If your pooch has done the deed on your carpet or on the floor, there’s no saying “no” to the unbearable stench and stains. Soak up the urine with a paper towel, spray the stain with a mixture of half vinegar and half baking soda solution and let it soak in for 10 minutes. Then, absorb the excess moisture with a paper towel, sprinkle the spot with baking soda and let it dry. Remember to keep pets away, as baking soda is toxic to dogs. Once dry, vacuum it up.
A Bit of Drama: How often does your dog run away when you let him loose in the open? You try catching him but all that happens is he runs faster. Try this hack instead-Act. Yes, a bit of drama like you are hurt and lying down, your pet will come running to check on you. Bang on, you can bag an Oscar even if you’re a terrible actor. (And imagine how cute that would be?! – Major feeler alert!)
Fresh Breath: Does your dog’s bad breath turn you away from him? Simply add a bit of parsley to their food. Parsley is full of vitamins and will help in eliminating bad mouth odour.
Pet Hair: Only a pet owner knows what a pet peeve shedding can be. Since we can’t control natural coat shedding, we can clean it easily. All you got to do is wear a rubber glove, wet it and run your hand on the upholstery. No hair there or anywhere! Voila!
Turmeric is the Key: Recent studies have proved that turmeric has healing properties, can eliminate pain and even reduce inflammation. All these benefits can also help out our four-legged friends. PS: Turmeric is also a blood thinner and can hence react with medicines. Always consult your vet before using it.
Beat the Heat: Dogs love to be taken out for a walk but did you know that their paws are equally sensitive as human’s skin? If you can’t walk barefoot on a hot surface, so can’t your dogs! Always walk them early in the morning or late in the evening when it’s comparatively cooler.
Pool Party: Even dogs love pool parties! All you have to do is set up a small tub(inflatable or plastic) full of water and a few chunks of ice and get him splashing! This is an easy way of relieving him on hot, sultry days! And so much fun! You could take really cute pictures of him splashing about!
