Exercise Doesn’t Make Your Dog Happy, PLAY DOES

Don’t Confuse

a Dog Being Tired For Happiness.

Exercise is good, but only if it involves play for your dog. Many in the dog training and behavior field, suggest exercising your dog to overcome many behavioral issues your dog may have. While exercise is of vital importance for the physical health of your dog. It doesn’t do a whole lot of good, in helping your dog come to grips with it’s behavior problems. Animal behavior is, obviously a mental issue, not a physical one.

Your Dog Needs To Be Happy

Happy Dog

Play. play, play play, play ! I cannot stress the importance of play, in helping your dog find happiness and mental well being. Which is the first big key in helping you, help your dog find happiness. That will lead to a more stable and socially acceptable dog. You know, a dog that doesn’t bite strangers, your kids, your friends  or your extended family members.

Behavior Modification is a mental process, not a physical process.

Play With Your Dog

While some dogs will play by themselves, they would be much more happier if you played with them. Spend some quality play time with your dog, don’t put it off till tomorrow.
