Making your pet feel like part of the family can be a task and a half. Whether you want to treat your pet like a fur baby, or they’re just there for company, here are a few creative ways you can make your pet feel like they’re part of the family.
If They’re An Outside Pet
Sometimes a home can only have a pet if they sleep outside, and that’s okay. You can still make them feel like a part of the family, even if they’re outside. When the weather gets blustery, make sure they have somewhere warm and undercover that they can inhabit, so they don’t become cold or scared. A sturdy dog kennel is a great way to keep them feeling safe and sound, even when they’re outside.

Take Time To Get To Know Them
Sarah Korzeba from Akasha Physio and Yoga shares her advice. “Take time to get to know them. Spending time with animals is quite precious- they are good for your general health (stress relief) and are entertaining as well! It is quite something to have a relationship grow without words as such! Watch their behaviours to learn more about them. For example, I always check where they are resting when I am home to see what locations they like, in order to put special little beds around in their favourite spots eg in winter to keep them warmer.” Find out more about Akasha Physio and Yoga by following them on Facebook.
Anna Podolsky from Lyka Pet Food shares her advice. “Most pet owners have one bed for their pet, usually in a quiet spot where the pet can sleep without being disturbed. To make them feel even more integrated, set up a second bed in a central part of the house, like the living room, so they can lounge comfortably while hanging out with the family.” Find out more about Lykka Pet Food by following them on Facebook and Instagram. You can find an amazing range of pet beds online from MyDeal.
From here, you can always go all out and begin walking your pet in a pet pram, dressing them up in outfits and start your own Instagram page dedicated to them. They are your fur baby after all, why not make them number one?
