Is your dog a big, goofy ball of fur with a heart of gold? Do you often find yourself chuckling at Fido’s silly antics? Just like people, our canine friends all have their own unique personalities. Some are very serious and reserved, while others are outgoing and friendly. Then there are the lovably goofy dogs, those adorable pups that have a way of finding special places in our hearts and homes! Below, a Cambrian, CA vet offers some fun ways to celebrate your furry pal’s goofy side.
We often forget to stop and snap pictures of our canine friends when they’re being super cute. Take time to capture some shots that show your furry buddy being his adorable, perhaps somewhat silly, self. Experiment with different light and angles. Sooner or later, you’ll end up with a picture that makes you burst out laughing! When you do, we want to see it!
All dogs should know the five basic commands, which are Sit, Stay, Lay Down, Heel, and Come, before learning tricks for fun. Once Fido has these down, however, you can teach him some funny tricks. Try ‘Gimme Five’, in which your dog raises his paw in a celebratory doggy salute. Or, teach him to put his paws over his eyes, as though he’s embarrassed.
Dog shaming may sound embarrassing, but it really only entails taking a picture of your canine pal with a homemade sign describing a funny or mischievous habit he has. While true behavioral issues, such as aggression, should be taken very seriously and handled with the help of a professional, there’s no reason you can’t have some fun with Fido’s amusing quirks. For instance, if your pooch won’t settle down without his special blankie, celebrate this adorable habit and share it.
Our canine friends offer us unconditional love and loyalty. Goofy dogs also provide us with lots of laughter, which is great for us emotionally! Reward Fido just for being his lovable self by providing lots of toys, belly rubs or back scratches, and healthy snacks. Take time to play with your pup, and indulge him with occasional trips to a park or doggy cafe. The love of a goofy dog is a truly beautiful thing!
