Here are some tips to make the most of your four-legged companion time:
- Play and interact with your pooch to get the most health benefits — for both of you.
- Get moving with your pet. You’ll both get exercise and fresh air, and you may find yourself meeting other dog owners in your area. Socializing can be a good thing.
- Hit the road. Love to travel? Your dog might too. Research pet-friendly hotels so you and your furry friend can go on adventures together.
- Savor the snuggles. Give lots of scratches behind the ears, belly rubs or good old-fashioned head pats. The more you love your pet, the more they’ll love you back.
