I provide care for my dogs - that means treats, food, toys, beds, etc. I consider those basic needs. Does it mean they don't get extra's like bandanas which I find cute? Sure they do, it doesn't hurt them and I like the way they look. I bought a dog stroller for a geriatric foster because he loved being outside but couldn't handle long walks.
So in the end, don't look at just one term and look at the overall picture instead. If the dog is healthy and happy then I don't care what you call it. I cringe when I see dogs that are obese to the point they can't walk, misbehave to the point they're menaces. But I cringe just as much when I see dogs abused
Just my two cents
