One of the most beautiful moments in life is when another soul enters our home. A dog brings about peace and tranquility. Many have stated that having a dog can be very therapeutic. Dogs are truly affectionate creatures. But what if the dog that you’re introducing to your home has already reached adulthood and formed attachments? Socializing and interaction might be more difficult than you think.
There is no one-size-fits-them-all approach when it comes to dogs because each race is different and every dog is unique. If you want to win a dog’s love you’ll need to invest time and a bit of effort.
You could start by trying to understand your dog and to know his needs. If you give him the loving care that he needs and do things that he loves, he will eventually warm up to you.
Win your dog’s trust by creating a strong bond between the two of you.
Regardless of your dog’s personality, you must act like a leader that he can look up to. Your Maltese puppy, for instance, will still need someone to be supported by, even if it’s a fearless creature that will do anything in its power to protect you.
Keep a close eye on him and notice what he likes and what he doesn’t like. The more time you spend with him doing things that he likes, the stronger the bond between the two of you will be.
They absolutely love the outdoors and don’t really enjoy staying indoors for long periods of time. They simply aren’t made for a sedentary lifestyle, so you should really make an effort to take him out for a walk. This is beneficial for his overall well-being and the bond between the two of you. Don’t forget to use a leash when taking him out for a walk in order to avoid conflicts with other stray dogs. Also, choose an anti-flea leash, so that your dog doesn’t bring unexpected guests back home.

Training them is an efficient method to nurture their lust for life and agility. Dog training works for any breed. There are some specific techniques that you must apply for him to learn that it’s not OK to jump on people or stray out of sight. Dogs with a higher-than-average IQ can be trained to do more complex tasks. That’s why the police or other government institutions use dogs for search and rescue operations. Try to teach your dog one little trick a week. You could start by teaching him simple commands and progress towards more complicated tasks. This will make him happy and loyal towards you.
Professional trainers know that the best method to encourage an animal to behave in a certain way is to give him small rewards every time he listens to you or correctly executes a trick. Thus, your dog will learn to associate that action with receiving a reward. Feed him foods that are rich in protein, vitamins and minerals. Be extra careful when you feed him off your table. Some foods are toxic for dogs.
An animal that is attached to you will want to spend as much time as possible with you. If you try to isolate him in another room, he might get sad. However, if you don’t want him to constantly sleep in bed next to you, you can let him do it only occasionally. He will then view it as a reward.

As any other pet, dogs can get depressed if treated badly. If you often punish him, yell at him, or worst, use physical violence against him, not only will you train him to do naughty things, but your dog will start fearing you. An anxious dog is much more predisposed to heart disease, digestive or respiratory problems. Thus, you should avoid being abusive in any way, even verbally.
Follow these tips and it’ll be easier to create a loving bond with your dog. You will come to understand the full meaning of why dog is man’s best friend.

He will constantly come after you, jump on your lap and make you want to play with him. He does this because he feels comfortable with you and loves your company.
One of the most obvious signs of affection is when he starts licking you. In the moment that your four-legged friend jumps on you and licks you, he’s telling you that he loves you. While it may not be very hygienic, it’s his way of showing you love.
You will be greeted with enthusiastic jumps and happy howls when you arrive home. There are few things in life that can match the love seen in a dog’s eyes when his master comes home.
When you’re out, your four-legged friend will act like a bodyguard, always hanging by your side and defending you from any perceived threat.
If your dog is displaying at least some of the behaviors mentioned above, odds are that you’ve won his/her heart. Don’t worry if he doesn’t immediately warm up to you. Just treat him right, be considerate and both of you will be happy.
