If you are treating your dog with care and respect, he will undoubtedly know you love them. But let’s say you don’t want to leave any doubts about the four-legged member of your family. In that case, here are some ways you can show your dog that they are loved.

Cuddle With Them

All dog owners already do this, but it doesn’t hurt to do it more often. If you cuddle with your dog frequently, they will know you like their closeness and be even more attached to you.

Have Outdoor Activities

Playing catch, teaching them new tricks, or simply taking them for a walk in the park is a great way to deepen your bond with your dog. This will help them recognize your dedication and make them feel loved.

Feed them Treats

Everyone likes treats, and dogs are no different. Give them a treat from time to time, and they will definitely feel appreciated. Just make sure you don’t spoil your beloved pet by giving them too many.

Scratch Them Behind the Ears

Finally, you can tell your dog you love them with the good old scratch behind the ears. This stimulates the sensitive nerves that send “feel good” hormones known as endorphins through their body.
