We all want to take the best care of our dogs in our life.  They are our babies, we treat them as our children and want them to live a long healthy happy life with us.  There are easy steps that can be taken to ensure that we can have the best of them and they can feel strong and healthy to enjoy life.

5 Simple Ways to Take Care of Your Dog


Take to the vet twice a year – they need those bi-yearly check-ups to make sure everything is running as it should be in their bodies.  Since they can’t tell us if something is wrong or what is wrong, it’s better to have that check-up to make sure everything looks good to the vet.  

Grooming – either groom them yourself or take them in somewhere every 4 to 6 weeks.  Things can get matted and it’s best to keep up on those so you don’t have a mess to deal with later.  Plus you’ll love the way they’ll feel and they’ll thank you later for feeling so spry.  

Playtime – you might not think playtime is important.  But it is.  It is how their minds keep active, they can get some exercise and you can get bonding time with them.  

Walks – take them on regular walks.  Even if you have a yard for them to run in.  I am guilty of not doing this one enough.  Not only are they getting the exercise, they are getting to sniff out the area more and you as a bonus are always getting some extra exercise in.  

Dental Care – take care of your dogs dental/mouth health.  Take them in for yearly dental cleanings, just as you would yourself.  Also brush their teeth and/or give them dental bones to keep those pearly whites perfect as they should be.  Also, you can add in using the Orapup Dog Tongue Brush, which not only helps keep our babies breath smelling great, but also helps break down the plaque.

    What great tips for taking care of your pups! We have two fur kids here, and it’s important to take care of them like you would any member of your family. Thanks for sharing! #client

  • Debbie Gibson

    That’s a really neat invention, i just might have to look into it for sambo.

    • It is. I giggled at just how much Roxy enjoyed it too.

  • aprilaakre

    such cute pictures of Roxy. I am glad the weather is finally getting nicer here that way I can take Trigger on more walks. It gives him exercise and me too. I didnt know they had a tongue brush for dogs, pretty neat.

    • Thanks April – it’s such a neat little tool and one the fur baby seems to just love.

  • I don’t have a dog, but I know when I did her breath would STINK!!! I never thought about brushing her teeth either ( I know, I’m not a great dog owner and why we aren’t getting another one even though my kids really want one! ). When I do finally give in, you are going to be my go-to doggie expert!

    • Aww thanks Miranda. I look forward to your doggie questions 😉

  • Crochet Hooks

    too cool! i need one of those for our pups. like you we have a yard so hard sometimes to remember to take them on a hike regularly but they do so enjoy it!!

    • They are super neat little tools. I admit I don’t use it as often as I should.

  • Mandi

    Dog toothpaste is so gross smelling, but it works! We brush our girls (we have 3 dogs) when they’ll let us and plenty of dental bones. Thank you for linking up at the Simply Sundays link party!

    • Aren’t the fur babies so stubborn sometimes. lol Sometimes I wonder just how hard headed Roxy is and then I realize she is just like me lol
