6 Ways to Make Your Dog Happy


5. Love & Affection

Dogs love to be petted and stroked as much as humans do, if not more so. Hence if you have a dog, you should make the effort to be physically tactile with him. If your dog wants to crawl into your lap, you should let him. If you know your dog loves it when you scratch behind his ears, indulge him. The more physical affection you show your dog, the more he will come to trust you.

Your dog will also feel happy if you make the effort to talk to him. Dogs especially like to be praised for doing something right. When you talk to your dog, use a high- pitched voice to show him that you are pleased with him.
