7. Bring Them On Trips
You dog wants nothing more than to be included. Dogs don’t like being left at home, they want to spend as much time with you as possible. They are not aware that their hair is hard to clean up or they slobber on the car seats. So put a sheet down and bring them along. They will happily place their head on your lap on long car rides because as long as you are right there with them, they are happy. Dogs aren’t aware they are dogs, they feel like they are a part of your family and they want to be able to protect you. Plan to stay at places that are dog friendly and find restaurants that allow dogs on the patio. Remember to crack your window if you have to step away from your car and leave them for a little while. Also remember, you should not leave your dog in the car for any extended period of time.
