We’ve had Athena for six years now, which I can’t believe. About two years ago, we adopted a rescue “Mini Husky,” – Astro – who wound up actually being 0% Husky and all love! For some reason, we decided to get a third dog in March! We planned for this in February so we had no idea what life was going to be like in March, April, May, etc. but it wound up being such an incredible decision. Our little farm puppy, Lucy, has given us so much love (and a lot of exercise chasing her). It’s always an adjustment but we’re really getting used to having three dogs in the house. Each one is unique in his or her own way, but we show them all the same love and care.
The Amazing Ways We Bond With Our Dogs:
This is a family of high-protein, natural dog food, treats, and toppers that are available in grain-free and wholesome grain options. And there’s a new product line on the shelves – Wellness CORE RawRev with Wholesome Grains! We buy Wellness CORE RawRev with Wholesome Grains Original. There are so many health benefits our dogs enjoy. Wellness CORE RawRev is a natural, high-quality kibble with pieces of craveworthy 100% freeze dried raw meat. It is powered by Wholesome Grains, and the food contains high protein for lean muscle mass and muscle tone. It also has Omega Fatty Acids for healthy skin and coat, and contains guaranteed levels of probiotics to support digestive health.. Lastly, it has Glucosamine and Chondroitin for joint support. This helps put our dogs on the path to health.
Why We Love Wellness CORE RawRev with Wholesome Grains:
I love putting our three dogs on the path to improved joint health, better breath, more energy, and shinier coats. In fact, I found out that if your pet’s coat is lacking shine and luster, switch their food to something better and healthier. And this is because feeding them better food makes them healthier from the inside out. When you choose the right food, you make a big difference for dogs of all sizes and breeds. You’re giving them more energy, and a better chance at living a longer, healthier life. I love when my dogs have more energy than I do! Wellness CORE RawRev is also available in grain free recipes. Both the grain free and wholesome grains options have high protein to support lean muscle.
Sharing Unconditional Love and Close Bonds With Your Dog(s):
1 – Start training, if you haven’t already, or maintain it. This creates communication between your dog and you. It helps her focus, and fosters teamwork and belonging. We teach Lucy to come, sit, stay, down, down-stay, etc. Teach your dog a new trick once a month. This will make your dog smarter, and will strengthen your bond.
2 – Don’t just play with her. Keep it special and engaged. When we first got Athena, we took her to the beach and she SWAM with us! We were so surprised. Fun and agility-based activities build loyalty and a deeper relationship.
3 – Have quiet time together. No gadgets, no screens, no devices – just the two of you.
4 – Travel together. I first fell in love with Athena because of how awesome she was on our annual Cape Cod vacation. And I think she falls in love with us a bit more each time we trust her enough to take her on our adventures. Right now we are not traveling but we can take road trips with the dogs still – just for time in the car or to go to a remote hiking location.
5 – Turn negative experiences into positive experiences. Astro hates grooming and bathing, but those are bonding experiences in themselves. Use treats, toys and a slow transition to make the experiences more positive.
6 – Feed at a specific time of day. With our cat, we leave food for her all day, but with Athena, we feed twice a day at the same time. She will tell us when it’s time if we forget! This will make her depend on you, and bond to you more.
