Great, you've got a senior dog and no problems, or at least you're counting the presents, not the problems. How wonderful!
From the consciousness of dogs we know that dogs are very much aware of passing time, and the fact that they are getting older. Let's see how we can make the unavoidable aging joyful for both, us and our dog. Here's what seems to make senior dogs most joyful:
Together-time with us and all Pack members: Senior dogs typically value most the time when they can be together with us, the Pack members, ideally with all Pack members at the same time, the whole family
Meeting old friends: Whether our senior dog is still fit or not, meeting old friends, both dogs and people, is always high on the agenda too
Playing games: This is subject to physical ability and how joyful playtime has been earlier in the dog's life
Stay with us and your dog will stay with you, both of you healthy and well-behaved.
If you are ever unhappy with anything we write, do or don't do, we want to be the first to know, thanks.
