How to use dogs to stand out
I get this question all the time from people – How do I most effectively use my dog to my advantage? Should I get a dog to make me look good? Will a dog improve my social status? How do I use my dog to further my career? These are the questions a popular dog blogger fields EVERY DANG DAY.
Not really. But I’m going to tell you how to use dogs to stand out anyway.
- Dogs make great fashion accessories. Boxers, for instance, make a statement about your persona. They either say, “Look at me! I’m a tough guy who owns a tough dog!” or “I’m fragile and fashionable, so I got this dog as protection. Don’t touch me.” Using dogs to stand out is as easy as tailoring your wardrobe to tell people who and what you are. If you’re a tough guy, go for the Chihuahua. This tells people that you’re secure in your masculinity. And it’ll look cute in your fanny pack.
- Don’t train your dog to toilet outdoors. The quickest way to use dogs to stand out is to make sure they’re not housebroken, then to take them with you where ever you go. People won’t forget you. They won’t forget your dog. And most of all, you won’t be invited back to anyone’s home. Ever. But you’ll certainly stand out.
- Want to use dogs to stand out? Make sure your dog is unusual. Either have the largest dog, the smallest dog, the furriest dog, the dog with no hair, the most expensive dog, the ugliest dog – you get the picture. The key, here, is to really USE your dog.
What really counts
Y’all, this is obviously really tongue in cheek. If you’re going to have a dog, or any pet (or children, for that matter), then what really counts is taking care of your dog. Do what’s right for the dog. Don’t use your dog as a fashion statement or status symbol. And do give your dog Jones Natural Chews. Because they’re the best. Duh. Because when it’s all said and done? Your dog is using you to get treats and pets.
What really counts is regular veterinary care, good food (it doesn’t have to be the best or most expensive, as long as it’s good), regular walks. What counts is quality time with your dog, proper training, a job to do. What counts is loving your dog and understanding its needs the best you can. And if you dress your dog, I’m certainly not here to judge you.
Last, but not least, give your dog good treats. You can afford to give your dog the best treats. I know, because Jones Natural Chews are the best treats, and they’re affordable. Jones is family run and understands that paying an arm and a leg for good treats is unreasonable. They also understand that getting high quality, all natural, grown and made in the USA treats is important. So they make it happen.
In fact, Jones wants some lucky dog to win a bucket full of yummy meat treats! Click on this sentence and a new window will open up with our giveaway post. Leave a comment on that post for a chance to win! And if you don’t win? Another giveaway starts next Tuesday. You lucky dog. Good luck! And paws crossed.
Until I write again …
