Life with pets is so much more fun, and at Sunset Plaza, we want to make sure that Fido loves living in our community just as much as you do. Whether you guys are stuck inside due to work or you can’t bear heading out in the heat, it’s important that your dog has plenty to keep them occupied. Check out our favorite ways to make sure your pup is getting plenty of mental and physical exercise when you can’t take them outside for a distraction.
5 Easy Ways to Keep Your Dog Busy Indoors
1. Use Interactive Toys
There are millions of different types of dog toys available on the market today but some of the best use clever tricks to keep your pup occupied. Keep your dog busy for hours on end by using a stuffed, chewable dog toy that will make them work to get their favorite treats.
2. Name Their Toys
Did you know that some dogs can learn up to 800 different words? Keep your dog’s gears moving and give them something new to learn by teaching them names for each of their toys. It may take some practice but once they’ve got them all down, knowing all of their names will be useful in many ways.
3. Find Hidden Toys
Once they know the name for all of their toys, you can teach them to find specific ones. Hide them around the apartment and play your very own version of hide-and-seek. It’s guaranteed hours of fun!
4. Make Them Work at Meal Time
Keeping a schedule is important for dogs but meal times can get boring with the same old food dish routine. Try using a boredom buster by investing in a food dispensing toy that will put their brainpower to the test.
5. Make Chores Fun
Make chore time go by more quickly by teaching Fido to help out. They can learn to bring you items from certain rooms, open doors and even help to put their toys away too.
