Having Fun at Home With Your Dog!
Did you know there are so many ways for you and your dog to bond & create a longer, lasting relationship? Having fun with your dog by playing games or training helps build your relationship & improves the trust and happiness between you and your dog.
Here are our top 5 enrichment activities for you & your dog to try...
1) Search for some treats!
Place treats on floor in an open area, put a blanket over the top, let your dog figure out how to find them. This is a great mental workout and encourages them to forage and use their noses to find the delicious treat!
2) Good old game of Tuggy
Hide a treat or toy in an old sock, play tuggy then let your dog destroy it for the reward. This will give them much satisfaction and joy as they figure out how to find the prize!
3) Teach your dog to settle
Ask them to sit on a mat beside you, then intermittently drop a treat between their paws as they are calm. Not only is this a lovely calm activity, you're also teaching them something which is valuable for both you and your dog.
4) Blowing bubbles
Blow bubbles for your dog, see if they like to try and catch them!
5) Buy a new toy
Buy stuffed toys from a charity shop and let your dog destroy them- they are inexpensive and the money goes to a good cause
