Lauren Keul Adopts an Active Lifestyle with Adopted Pup
High-Energy Husky Needs Regular Exercise
When I adopted my first dog, a Siberian Husky named Luna, I had a general sense of what it meant to take care of a high-energy dog. I knew she would need lots of exercise and probably a lot of training and I was probably in for a whole lot of dog fluff around the house. And boy, was I right.
My family and I adopted Luna when she was sixteen months old. Well into her "adolescent" years, she had (and still has) the energy of a curious, athletic teenager. But she also brought along some bad habits when she moved in with us.
The people who had her before loved her, there was no doubt about that, but they didn't care for her as much as they should have. They often left her in a crate all day and hardly went on walks with her, though I don't fault them for this. They just weren't equipped to take care of such an energetic breed in the way Luna needed them to.
Importance of Caring for Your Pet
An important part of caring for your dog is being proactive with their health. This involves training, visit to the vet, and exercise among other things. As a dog parent, you should try your hardest to make sure you can make your dog as healthy and happy as it can be. This only makes your companion feel great, but it strengthens your bond together, which is one of the most important parts of having a dog.
The bond I have with Luna has inspired me to get more active, not only with walking her and take care of her, but by becoming more active in the dog owner community. This is what led me to interning for WoofPack Trails, creator of the WoofPack dog walking accessory bag. I heard about the internship opportunity through one of my professors, and I was intrigued, so I reached out. A couple months later, here I am! I manage social medias and am writing some blog posts. Throughout these next few months, I hope to discover more about what I can do to further strengthen my bond with Luna, as well as gain some helpful experience along the way.
Walks With Luna Strengthens Our Bond
My bond with Luna is built on trust, love and training. One of our favorite things to do is go for walks in the woods near our house. Spending time with Luna has changed my life. Now I now the true meaning of "A dog is man's best friend" because she definitely is my best friend. I have the responsibility to take care of this amazing dog, and it means so much to me to know that she trusts me to love and care for her. This bond I have with Luna is something I would never give away, even if someone offered me the world.
