Our furry family members add so much joy to our lives. Nothing really beats the excited wagging of tails when returning home or games of fetch at the park.

While your pet may seem satisfied with a bone or a simple throw of a stick, there are other steps you can take to make sure they are as comfortable as possible, including:

Exercise Your Pet Often

Perhaps the most important part of keeping your furry friend happy while living in an apartment is providing them with consistent, quality exercise. For dogs (or cats, we don't judge), this means walking them often! This will allow them to get out of their normal environment and explore the outside world as well. You'll also want to provide toys for your dog or cat, and invest some time in playing with them! This will help your pet get their energy out, as well as serve as quality time for you to spend together.

Create Space for Your Pet

For us humans, our home is our place to relax and unwind. That goes for our pets as well! Providing a space for your pet that is truly theirs can go a long way. You can place a bed, toys, and food and water bowls on a mat somewhere for your furry friend. You could even add a cat tree. This will provide them a space they can retreat to when they are tired, overwhelmed, or just need a break. Only enter this space if it seems like they want you there; this way, they know they have a place of their own, which will make them very comfortable in your home.

Stick to a Routine

Animals are often creatures of habit and thrive when they know what their day holds. You can help create a sense of stability for your pet by creating a routine for them and sticking with it. For example, wake up at the same time every day. Feed your pet, then take them for a walk or play with them. Then, provide them with a treat! That will give them something to look forward to. If your pet is a free feeder, make sure to fill up their food bowl at the same time every day. As long as you are building the main elements of their day, like feeding and playing, into their routine, they'll be happier for it!
