10 Ways To Make Your Pet Happier

Every pet owner should be concerned with how to make their pet happier. It takes a lot of work, but making sure your pet has mental health and emotional security that matches its physical wellbeing is vital. We’ve thrown together a list of quick ways to make your pet happier so you know you’re the absolute best pet parent you can be.

1. Plan Playtime

Unless your pet has a health condition that prohibits it, playtime is always a good idea for your pet. It increases mental and physical stimulation, promotes exercise and furthers the bond between you and your pet. Make it a daily fixture so you both have something to look forward to.

2. Socialize

Not all pets get along with other pets, of course, but it’s worth trying to give your pet some time to socialize with something other than people. Dog parks, planned hangouts and playdates will provide structure and socialization.

If you have a cat, adding another cat to the household can give him someone to play with and keep him from getting lonely when you’re out of the house.
