What do you do when you feel overwhelmed by the loving eyes of your furry friend, by his unceasing royalty, by his therapeutic bodily warmth? Well, belly rubbing and sniffing back and squeezing goes so far. In a long run, I personally feel that I owe my dog a lot more than just affection.
To live a healthy, happy life, any dog, including my young German Shepherded, needs to receive regular exercise, ongoing training and the end of the day – yes affection (as Ceasar Millan recommends the order). Affection of course comes in many shapes and shade and indeed making the commitment to walk and challenge and feed him could only come from a loving heart for animals.
