Stella the beautiful Bloodhound says, "To keep your pet healthy and happy like me, try feeding pups hard kibble and treats instead of canned dog food to help prevent the buildup of plaque. You can also try Greenies dog treats which are great for removing tartar and plaque. Us dogs love to chew on these nutritional dog treats! As an added bonus, it even freshens our breath!"

If it is too cold to take Fido out for a nice brisk walk, then try playing fetch with your pet inside for about 15-20 minutes a day. You can also play hide and seek with your pet by hiding a rawhide bone in different areas around the house. By using the bone, it will encourage your pet to find the hidden object because he will be able to smell it. Be sure to praise your pet when he does find it. Also, if your pet does not currently have a playmate, try adopting a new puppy! They will stay occupied by playing together and it will also provide them with plenty of exercise.
Change His Diet
Just like humans; dogs also get tired of eating the same food over and over. If you are buying him one brand of dry dog food every time, try switching to a different brand. Offer him wet dog food 1-2 times a week so he will keep his interest in eating. However, you want to be sure not to over feed your dog, as they do tend to be a little less energetic during the winter months.
Sharpen Your Pet’s Mind
Teach your pet a new trick. He may already know the basic tricks such as sit and beg, but try a trick that may be a little more difficult. This will help to improve your pet’s mentality and help keep him from getting depressed because his mind will stay active. It will also make the bond between you and your pet stronger.
