Loyal, loving, and always eager to please – that’s what most pet parents love about their Cockapoos. They’re like furry little children to most pet owners, and there is nothing they won’t do to pamper them. But there is much more to simply feeding and cleaning up after your four-legged friend when it comes to showing you care. If you are the proud parent of the adorable Cockapoo, there are many ways to show your pup just how much you love them.
We all know how much our pets mean to us – they’re a constant companion, whether out for a walk or waiting by the door when it’s time for bed. It can be difficult to find just the right way to express our love for them – but with these seven ideas, you can do just that.
Spend Quality Time Together
One of the best ways to show love for your Cockapoo is to simply spend time with them. Giving attention to your dog will make him or her feel loved, wanted, and cared about. If you are too busy at work all day or if it’s difficult because of where you live to take a walk during the daytime, try spending some quality time with your dog before they go to bed for the night.
If you have already trained Cockapoos before, you know they can easily get bored. Try teaching your pet dog new tricks or play a game with them to keep their cognitive skills sharp and happy and prevent unwanted chewing or biting.
Give Your Pup a Toy When You Get Home
Dogs love to give love and receive love from their owners. They’re so happy when you come home that they might just want to jump all over you. This can be a little overwhelming for some people, but there is an easy solution. Give them something to chew on or play with right away when you walk in the door – it will show your pet how much you care about them.
Some great play toys include:
- Rope toys
- Balls (make sure they’re not too big for your pup)
- Squeaky toys
- Chews that can help keep teeth healthy and breath fresh
Exercise Your Cockapoo Regularly
If you can, exercise your dog every day by taking them on a walk, playing fetch, and giving them plenty of room to run around in the backyard. This is a great way for you and your dog to spend some time together. You also get to keep your Cockapoo healthy and happy. If you work all day, try to let your pup exercise around the house instead of leaving them cooped up in a kennel for extended periods of time.
You can use playtime as a great way to bond with your Cockapoo and teach them how to behave properly without jumping on guests or furniture.
Let Your Dog Sleep Next to You on the Couch or Bed
Dogs love to sleep next to their humans, and they will do so all the time if you let them. This means that if you live alone, your Cockapoo might be sleeping right up against you at night, every single night of the week. If this is a problem for any reason, give them a special place on the couch or a quality bed on the floor next to yours. You may be surprised how much better they sleep and how happy it makes them.
Groom Your Cockapoo Regularly
Grooming your dog regularly is a great way to show them some love. It keeps their coat healthy and well-maintained, which helps prevent shedding, promotes good hygiene by removing loose hair, and removes harmful parasites like ticks or fleas. Your Cockapoo will also enjoy being handled by groomers as they get pampered with shampooing, drying, and brushing.
Share Food With Your Cockapoo
Sharing food with your Cockapoo is a perfect way to express your love for them. Dogs have a highly developed sense of smell and taste, so there is no better way to show your love than by giving them something delicious for dinner. This could be as simple as sharing some scraps from your plate, making their favorite meal yourself, or even celebrating their pet birthday with “pupcakes.”
Get a Second Pet Buddy
There’s no better way to show your Cockapoo that they are loved than getting them a second pet buddy. You can get another pup of the same breed or an older canine to give them some company as well. Dogs generally enjoy being around other dogs because it means more playtime and less time alone.
Your Cockapoo deserves to be loved and cared for, so go ahead and show your love in every possible way.
