3 Unique Ways to Pamper Your Pet

Pamper Your Pet and Have Happy Time TogetherI'm a pet parent if there every was a pet parent. I don't have human children, I have fur children. Caring for dogs is obviously different than caring for a child, but to me, the love is still comparable.

I show my dogs I love them in many different ways, however, I feel like these three ways really stand out as exceptional pet parenting. I challenge you to give one or all three a try.

1. A Doggie Massage!

Who doesn't love a good massage? I'm not talking about regular petting here, I'm recommending slow, relaxing strokes to calm your dog and stimulate blood flow to every muscle. Most dogs receive rapid pats or exciting scratches on a daily basis, mix it up every once in a while with a much needed tranquil massage and see if you notice a change in their demeanor. There are lots of videos and articles out there that dive into the details of doggie massage, but for convenience sake I'll explain the basics. Sit down with your dog and give her time to calm down and relax. Start by using long soft strokes, then gently knead once your dog is warmed up. I like to begin at my dog's head and work my way down her neck, shoulders, back, sides, tummy, and hindquarters, I knead with my entire hand, not just my fingertips, and put my whole arm behind the motions. Listen to your dog. She'll move around to a spot she find the best. Start with short periods of time and work up. It will be relaxing for both of you and it makes your dog feel good! It can also help prevent and heal injuries.

2. One on One Time or Solo Adventures

You want your dogs to love each other, but you also want your dogs to love you, too. Sometimes, dogs can get very attached to each other and it can leave pet parents out of circle. If you have more than one dog, like I do, try taking them out for a walk one at a time instead of always walking together. It's nice to give each dog individual attention and see their personalities shine through. Your dog will also be grateful to spend alone time with you. I notice my older dog has an extra pep in her step when we go for a walk without her rambunctious little sister. They love each other, though it is nice to spend time apart occasionally. You don't have to do this everyday, maybe take one dog on a hike once a week and another to the park! It's like spending time with your children, you want to give them each individual attention to strengthen your bond and show you care about them as separate units.

3. Long Lasting Chew Bone

Most pet parents like to give their dogs treats everyday as a way to show their love. The problem with treats is that the joy doesn't last very long and the excess calories can cause weight gain over time. I love to give my dogs long lasting chew bones once or twice a week, usually if I'm going to have a busy day and we can't fit in a long walk. I like to give my girls bully sticks or soup bones from the grocery store! Chewing is a primal activity for dogs. It releases stress, drains excess energy and keeps them occupied. There are lots of chew bones out there to choose from; do some research to see what fits you and your dog's lifestyle better. Remember to always monitor your dog when they're enjoying a long lasting treat! I hope you and your dog enjoyed this list. Have you implemented any of these in your life already?

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I should have bought these years ago. Easy to use, easy to clean, and tons of headaches saved in trying to keep a blanket or covering on the car seat when taking the dogs on the trails, camping, etc. Highly recommend.

Terrific product at a great price

I am beyond pleased with everything about my new 4Knines split rear back seat cover! The fabric is soft and attractive. The fit in my 2018 CR-V is perfect. Dirt just brushes off it, and water beads and wipes right off. It couldn't easier to put on and take off. This is a wonderful product at a great price.

XL Back seat bench cover

Love our new purchase from 4Knines. We were looking for a back seat cover that would fit our new 2017 F250 crew cab and this one fits perfect. Highly recommend for those wishing to maintain their seats. The material is excellent quality and it’s quick and easy to put on and take off. We also have the bucket seat covers from this company for our 2015 Yukon Denali and have gotten a lot of use out of them over the last couple of years and they are still in excellent condition and so are our seats. Thanks 4Knines for a great product!

great product, sturdy, XL great fit for new 4Runner, cleans easy

I was worried this product might not hold up since one I recently purchased from another company ripped w/in 2 weeks from my 30lb Aussie pulling on it when trying to get into the back. I have been extremely pleased with the XL cargo liner. The straps are much more durable with more stitching and better fabric. I have a 50 lb Border Collie mix and 30 lb Aussie. They have already put the liner to the test!!! I have used it numerous times in the short 2 weeks I have had it. The XL was a great choice for my new 2017 4Runner. It allows me to strap to the front headrests and protect the whole back of the SUV. The skirt protects the bumper. It is too long when I only strap to the middle seats but I just fold under the extra fabric and still have the skirt. I use the full length most of the time and reason I got the XL. The fabric is sturdy and protected the back when the dogs spilled water. So far I have used it to haul bags of topsoil, go on a camping trip and visit family. I purchased the liner mainly to protect the back b/c we have flyball practice every week and tournaments every month. That's a lot of in/out for equipment, doggies and crates. I was very glad to see the edges fold up to protect the wheel wells. I am extremely pleased with this product and sorry I wasted money on my first purchase from other company. I have already recommended the liner to fellow flyball teammates. Shipping was great also. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Sat. So far I have just swept the dirt off and used a shop vac. Cleans up well and easy.
