How To Prevent Your Dog From Getting Bored
The recent COVID-19 pandemic has left us all immobilized and isolated due to stay-at-home orders and quarantine restrictions in many places across the globe. This new reality forces us to create new ways to interact with friends and family and carry out daily activities. If you are concerned about your pup’s mental and physical health during this time, here are a few ways to remain healthy, active, and engaged. Read On!
Keep Them Active
The best way to keep your dog healthy mentally and physically is to help them stay active and energetic. You can take them out for a walk to places that are not too crowded, and if you have a yard, you can let them play outside too! The point is to get enough exercise through play and activities to keep your pup healthy and stimulated during this period.
Keep Them Engaged
Another way to help your dog stay active and engaged is to use their favorite toys and treats and create fun and exciting games while indoors. You can leave their toys around different rooms to create a treasure hunt, which can help keep their sense sharp. You can use their favorite toys to provide motivation for exercise and play while locked in the house.
Keep Them Healthy
Make sure to keep an eye on your pups’ diet during the restrictions. Without exercise, your puppy may start to put on weight, and it is necessary to control their portion sizes while ensuring that they get the best nutritious and high-quality dog food you can provide. Remember to keep track of their calorie intake to avoid digestion issues.
Keep Them Social
During the current travel restrictions, you can lose some of the training you have given your dog if they remain isolated for too long. The best way to ensure stress and anxiety-free experience for your pup is to arrange a safe playdate with other dogs and let them interact freely to boost their morale and mood.
Although it is a difficult time, we must take care of those we love in the best way possible. This means ensuring that your pup can stay stimulated, active, and healthy while being stuck indoors by utilizing the methods we have suggested above. We wish good health to you and your pup!
