My boys are hugged often, played with a great deal- one on one as much as possible though it can be difficult since I have 5 dogs. Before I leave the house they are all given kisses, and they sleep with me or my mother at night. With each dog I have something specific that I do with them to make them feel special. For instance, one of my dogs is aggressive when it comes to his treats. So he has to go into a crate at treat time. After they all eat their treats the rest of the dogs go outside and Scamp and I play together just one on one. Sidy loves to be pampered and he has his special spot on the couch and he loves for me to cover him up with blankets and "tucked in" like a child. My dogs have more toys than most kids, I have steps going up to my beds, couch and recliner so that they don't have to jump up/down from them, I keep them groomed nicely and feed them very well. They're the only kids I'll ever have, so I have to spoil them as much as possible lol

The important way to show love for them is offering them nutritious food in order to keep their healthy body. Not let pets be ill. If we have enough time, we should play with them, such as teach pets new tricks , stroke them or feed them as reward etc. we should keep pets clean , often bath them, not let them feel uncomfortable. Often take pets go to nature to breath fresh air.

Dogs are pack animals and view their owners as the "leader" of the pack or the head dog. As pack animals they want to be with you. Holding them (if they're small enough), petting them, brushing them if they like that, playing ball or tug-of-war wth them, talking to them are the best ways to show your love to a dog. My vet told me that the best way to show disapproval for something they have done is to isolate them, just for a minute or two. If one of my dogs, for instance, goes in the house, he or she goes in the bathroom just for a minute. Of course, you have to catch them in the act. It is useless to punish them for something they did hours ago, or even minutes ago, as they do not remember as dogs have no sense of time. I also agree that keeping them healthy is a very important way to show love, but of course, they have no way of knowing that. Spending time with them is the best way to show your love in a way a dog will understand. My two "girls" sleep with me. I usually get into bed after I tuck my daughter in. This is the time that I can spend with the dogs without interruption. I talk to them, rub their bellies, brush them, cuddle them, give them a treat. You can even do this while watching TV. When the light go out, they crawl under the covers, snuggle up against my side and leg, and we all go to sleep. I am no expert or authority on dogs, but I have had dogs all my life. I have read A LOT about them, talked with my vet, other dog owners, groomers, and trainers over the years. And I've asked MANY questions, just like you are doing here.

I can show my pets that I love them by feeding them regularly and healthy food and taking good care of them. I also play with them so they can feel that I'm always here for them and spend quality time with them

By playing with them, hugging, feeding under the table, and most of all I usually talk to my pet dog. But my sister's always taking the place of taking bath with him.
