Meeting Their Most Important Need

Updated: Apr 14, 2022

We are all here because every one of us wants to do the best we can for the dogs in our lives. We want to be sure we are giving our dogs the best possible lives with us. How do we actually go about making sure of that?

What are our dogs’ needs?

If a group of dog guardians was asked to create a list, they are likely to write similar things.

  • Food and water.

  • Stimulation – physical exercise and mental stimulation.

  • Adequate health care.

  • Comfortable sleeping locations.

  • Kindness and empathy.

What do all of those things in combination do for our dogs (or any other animal that may be under our care)? They make them feel safe.

A sense of safety and security is an essential part of helping our dogs to live happily and healthily. Without that, underlying stress can affect every part of their lives, to the detriment of their well-being, both mental and physical.

How can we be sure we are helping the dogs in our lives to feel safe and secure?
