Food and exercise are so vital to pets’ health that they take a huge priority in everything we do for our cat or dog. However we should pay attention and allocate time towards moments of play, grooming, and treats with our pets.
The importance of playtime has several important moments to build upon our understanding about and connection with our furry friends.
• Psychological and Interpersonal Connection
While we play and tease our puppy or kitty with a toy and participate in such interaction, we create a stronger bond between our furry baby and ourselves. A pet feels more secure, more trustworthy, stronger and more confident in her behavior. That allows our pets to develop a psychological barrier to any traumas and fears, and even lower the levels of aggression.
Toys are as crucial as food. They are in a way food for brain and produce positive pheromones to keep your pets happy. Be aware that toys need to be safe for your furry baby, as they could swallow small parts of the toy. Add some rattling and squeaking “personality” to your toys! Allow the pets to experience the richness of the world around them.
• A Healthier Relationship with Food
While playing and interacting with out pets, we may reward them with treats. A pet who is regularly played with has a healthier attitude towards food and meets a lower level of stress towards overeating. Rewarding your puppy or kitty with wholesome bits of Cat Treats or Dog Treats would create the moments of trust and peace in your pet which allows them to build a solid barrier against any excessive eating.
• A More Independent Personality
Stimulating your pet through different sources, i.e., playtime, treats, toys, creative housing constructions and bungalows, we build resilience to diseases and distress in our pets. Having more than one spot to rest, to watch, to sleep for your pet could create a safe haven for their full expression as your furry baby and friend. When your cat or dog feel happy, they will provide more peace and assurance to us, lower the stress and be better companions.
Obviously, Vet check-ups are a must. But the home environment and all that takes place there lie within our responsibility as being a Parent to healthy pets.
