I know I can’t be the only owner of a dog who doesn’t look at their pet and say, “you have the life.” Baloo naps on regularly–especially if someone is home with him–and has a set bedtime of 8pm. This month I got picked to try out a new food from Purina called BrightMind for Adult dogs 7+. When added to the daily diet of dogs 7+, formulas that contained enhanced botanical oils promoted memory, attention and trainability.
I know for sure I saw visible results within 30 days. Baloo has always loved play time and enjoying my spacious backyard. He’s loves to run and leap over the “obstacles” (patio furniture & firepit) that we have in our backyard. I had the luck to be able to spend some one-on-one time during the past month that I’ve been feeding him the BrightMind food. Did you know owners who feed their senior dogs Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind as a daily diet may notice differences in owner-dog interaction, interest in play and the ability to adapt and cope with change.
He has become more playful and he’s starting to do all of the things we taught him when he was a puppy. He sits up if you have a piece of cheese or any of his treats. He does this cool “high five” trick; if you say “HIGH FIVE” and hold your hand out, he will give you one back! But, the best thing he does is he gives me a “hug” when I get home from work. Luckily, BrightMind dog food has brought back his willingness to play more, and it feels like I have a puppy again which is awesome! He still acts like an old man dog when he wants his nap or his belly rubbed.
Recently, on my day off, he and I were able to do a little documentation about what he usually does when I am home alone with him. He loves to be right by anyone that has any type of food or drink, especially milk. Normally, he and I start off the morning with him on his bed that is in my room. Then we go have breakfast together. I spoil him so usually he gets part of it and sits right next to me. Next we hang out for a while, he lays on his special chair–yes he’s got his own chair! Since the weather started getting cooler, he loves being outside more often. He’s a newfoundland/black lab mix so he’s very furry and doesn’t like the heat too much. He’s a good “supervisor” when you are doing any type of yard work as he lays down in any shaded area keeping watch. Around dinner time he loves to eat with us, although he lays down to eat. With Purina BrightMind he loves to eat two scoop fulls everyday. Then he does a little circle dance when he needs to be let out. After he has his dinner if he’s not getting his belly rubbed, he watches TV with everyone and naps some more.
Around 7:30pm he likes to get ready for bed. If CA is over, he sometimes has a snack and Baloo will hang out with him, watching him eat whatever treat it is. Sometimes he actually shares what he’s having, especially if it’s ice cream.
Overall,I am extremely happy with the results that Purina BrightMind adult formula 7+ for dogs food has done for Baloo. It seems to have revived the puppy in him, especially with him wanting to do his old tricks again, even being able to concentrate and sit up longer for a treat.
What old tricks would you love for your dog to be able to remember and do again?
