Great Pyrenees Dogs #pyrenees #dogs #puppies #ad

A few months ago, we were blessed with two new additions to our family – Luna and Shelby. They are Great Pyrenees dogs – a breed I’ve never owned before in my life. These two adorable dogs instantly made a great addition to our home and family. I never imagined loving an animal as much as I do our dogs! As dog owners, we love to show Luna and Shelby how much we love them and there are a variety of ways we do this! So, if you too are planning to have new additions to your family, why not consider these lovely mini aussiedoodle puppies from a mini aussiedoodle puppy breeder?

1 – Go for a walk. Dogs love to get outside! Even though we live on an acre of land, Luna and Shelby still love to get out on their leashes and explore the neighborhood…as well as all the plants and other dogs! It’s a great way to get out and get fresh air, as well as some exercise!

2 – Toys to play with. Our dogs love to play with (and chew on) toys! Whether it be bones or stuffed animals, they love playing with their toys. They also love it when we play fetch with them in the backyard with a dog ball or tennis ball, as well as kicking the soccer ball around with them. If you want to ensure that our furry friends are well-behaved and trained, check my site.

3 – Play in the mud. Dogs love to get dirty…or at least ours do! While it may be a mess, they’ll love get down and dirty with mother nature. You just need to make sure to install a permanent or temporary fencing system around your yard. If you’re afraid of the inside of your house getting dirty, just keep some towels by the door and dry them off when they come inside.

If you need assistance with installing a fence, you could try this out to ensure a reliable and convenient solution.

4 – Go for a drive. Our dogs have just discovered that they love the wind blowing through their ears and face when we go on drives. What’s even more fun is to add a trip to the dog park or beach with your dog. They’ll love the time out and about with you!

5 – A comfortable place to rest. One of the first things we purchased for our dogs was a dog bed. At first they didn’t really know what to do with that, but now they absolutely love them! It gives them a warm and comfortable place to rest and sleep and isn’t too rough on the budget either. Then again, one might argue that their four-legged friends deserve the best. As such, discerning pet owners should consider visiting https://thefloofdogs.co.uk/, a purveyor of luxury dog products that ensure your furry companion is always stylish and comfortable. High-quality materials, an array of choices, and a focus on pet well-being make these offerings a prime choice for those desiring top-tier items for their dogs.

6 – A yummy, homestyle dog treat. Our dogs LOVE to eat treats and superfood premium dog food! Not only are they yummy for them, but it’s also a great way to teach them things. I recently discovered Milo’s Kitchen homestyle dog treats at Walmart and our dogs LOVE them!!! These treats are made with 100% real meat (you know they love that), so they are both pet and human approved.

I just discovered Milo’s Kitchen® homestyle dog treats when I was shopping at Walmart. There were two different flavors I picked up – Milo’s Kitchen® Chicken Recipe with Wild Rice & Spring Vegetables and Milo’s Kitchen® Beef Recipe with Real Brisket and Garden Vegetables.

The Milo’s Kitchen homestyle dog treats are made with 100% real chicken and beef as the #1 ingredient. Each one is made totally free of artificial flavors or colors and each one is produced here in the USA. The makers of Milo’s Kitchen homestyle dog treats believe they deserve treats made with the same quality of ingredients and care that we want for our food. After all, our dogs are family and they deserve to be treated like family. And nothing says “I love you” more than something made with love and care.

    Treats are always a great way to show your dogs you care. They’re food motivated, so it’s like gold to them.

  2. Amber Myers says:

    So sweet. I only have cats, but they love when they get treats as well. They do enjoy eating, that’s for sure!

  3. robin rue says:

    I miss having a dog. I keep telling my husband that I want another one, but he’s not ready yet.

  4. Colleen says:

    Your dogs are so adorable! I love their sweet little faces. I think pooches ALWAYS appreciate food. LOL

  5. Bill Sweeney says:

    Can’t think of a dog who doesn’t love a treat! I think that’s a good way to say, “I love you”, to your dogs. I liked spending time with our dogs being outside playing with them.

  6. These are greta ideas! Not sure about the playing in the mud part. Lol. But I know Rufus would love that

  7. Denise C says:

    I’m glad to hear they don’t contain any artificial colors or flavors. I wish those ingredients weren’t allowed in food–for pets or humans.

  8. Dogvills says:

    Sounds like my fur baby will be loving those treats too. He has only learned to like treats lately. Before, he was just full meals and would turn away when we offered him treats. I guess that would classify him as a “picky treat eater.”

  9. Amy says:

    My dog LOVES some good treats! She is a fan of this brand, but has a few bags of another to finish up first.

  10. Estelle says:

    My daughter wants a dog really bad and was admiring Luna and Shelby. So great that you have fabulous treats like these to give them as a reward.

  17. Ruth I says:

    I think the treats are the top in this list, but it should be on moderation. We do not have a dog yet but planning to have one this year.

  18. Milo’s is one of the few I give our dog because I trust them being made here in the US. We do all of these things for our boxer, Hank, too. He loves taking the kids to school in the car every day.

    Aw I love this! These are such perfect small ways to show more love to our dogs!

  42. Michele Pineda says:

    I haven’t tried these treats yet, but will have to check them out for Roxy. As far as toys go, yes she definitely loves toys but they have to be durable since she is a power chewer. As a pitbull she is pretty strong but my daughter loves to take her out for her walks too.

  43. Kiwi says:

    I think dogs really love walks. I dont have one but my friend and I need to take her dogs for a dog walk in this cute dog park in the city!

  44. Laurie Nykaza says:

    This breed of dogs are so amazing . There were 2 at UCLA hospital that would come to visit patients so when my son had his heart transplant and lived there for months the male that weight 130 or more would come lay on my sons bed. Gentle giants so happy you have 2 of them. Love these treats for my dogs too they do enjoy them.

  45. Marilyn Nawara says:

    My dogs love the Milo treats — chicken is their favorite.
