How to Tell Your Dog You Love Them Using The 5 Love Languages

We all know there are five love languages for humans, but what exactly does that mean for dogs? At Pet Releaf, we’s breaking down each of the love languages so you can figure out which language your dog speaks. Still not sure which one of the love languages is your dog’s favorite? Try spoiling your pup with love this holiday by trying out each one!

1. Acts of Service

Spend some time giving your dog a nice grooming session, taking them on a fun car ride, or baking them a special homemade cookie (with dog-approved ingredients of course)! If your dog loves being washed and brushed to get those stubborn knots out, then this may be the love language for them. Also, taking the time to bake a special cookie for your pup will have them feeling incredibly loved as they receive something thoughtful and delicious in return.

2. Gifts

Come home from your local pet store with a brand new toy or one of your pup’s favorite Pet Releaf products! The act of giving gifts shows your pup that you love and care for them—even if they destroy the toy within ten minutes of receiving it! It doesn’t matter if it lasts a lifetime or a day, your pup will be happy they received a gift from their favorite human. Does your pup love our CBD-infused Edibites? Pet Releaf Edibites can help your pup have a nice, relaxing evening while also receiving great health benefits. For example, our Calming Chews for Dogs are filled with functional ingredients like chamomile and baobab to help promote calmness. Give your best companion the gift of health this year by shopping our Edibites online or in-store!

3. Words of Affirmation

It’s time to have a training session with your dog! Commands like “sit”, “stay”, and “paw” are all great starting options for those pups who haven’t mastered training yet. If they’re listening and performing well, they deserve some recognition! Phrases like “Good job! or “You’re so smart!” are sure to make them feel better about the stressful lesson. They may not understand what those words specifically mean, but when spoken in a happy tone of voice, they’ll surely be aware that they’re doing a great job.

4. Quality Time

We understand that having pets and maintaining a job can be challenging when it comes to spending time with your dog during the week. This is why it’s so important to prioritize that quality time since they’re most likely at home missing you when you’re not there. Try to set aside some time after work to play with your dog and their favorite toy. And on the weekends, take your dog for a nice walk in the park or a hike on a dog-friendly trail! Any special time spent with you is sure to make your pup’s entire world.

5. Physical Touch

Touch is probably one of the most important love languages for your dog, so give them plenty of it! A nice belly rub, scratch behind the ear, or a kiss on the head can surely make your pups wag their tails. Plus, you could always multitask by cuddling up with your pup after work and catching up on your favorite TV show. It’s a win-win!
