Senior Moments… A new series of tips
If you’re lucky enough to have your dog live a long healthy life (which more dogs are doing these days with improved food, supplements and vet care), then you’re also going to need to help your dog as he ages. While older dogs are great because they are generally calmer, and adapted & trained to your lifestyle, at some point they become elderly and need different & additional care.
I’ve been dealing with my dog, Kompis’ changes for a few months now. It’s been quite an exhausting struggle to watch her go blind and turn senile. She’s also much weaker now. She walks ridiculously slowly and falls easily. It’s been heartbreaking.
But, the silver lining is that I’ve learned a great deal about the aging process – something they don’t really focus on with behavior/training courses, since older dogs don’t usually need to be trained. I’ve read what articles there are, but I’m learning much more by living it. And I want to share it with others to help them adjust to having an older dog. Hopefully these tips will make you feel less alone in your struggles if you are dealing with an older dog. And, if your dog is still young, these tips can help you be prepared.
If you have senior tips or videos to share, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can share your info as well. Let’s help each other through these agonizing times and help our dogs be as happy and comfortable as they can be during their last months & days.
