Liven Up Your Home
Once you’ve got your healing crystal, make sure to put it somewhere near your dog’s resting place. This will ensure that your pet is always well-rested.
Keep your house clean and fresh at all times. Consider using light-scented natural essential oils instead of air fresheners that could irritate your dog.
Make sure their sleeping space is as comfortable as it can be because dogs spend a good amount of time sleeping.
You may even consider getting multiple crystal healing stones to liven up other areas of the house.
Maintain Balance in the House
The last tip to keep in mind is consistency. Keeping up with their daily routines such as feeding and exercising is very important, giving your dog food puzzles to keep their minds away from boredom is also recommended.
Keeping the house clean, letting your dog sleep in a safe and quiet environment, or even leaving the curtains open for your dog to see the outside world, these little things can add up and help your dog maintain a good emotional balance.
