How To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In The Apartment In Carmel

August 11, 2021

Sometimes, your pooch could have a more issues getting used to apartment life more than you. A modern apartment floor plan helps, but you should keep your pup happy, or he might become destructive.

A place to exercise outside, fun toys, and puppy play dates can help keep your dog stimulated in an apartment in Carmel, so you both enjoy your renting experience.

Provide Your Dog With Lots Of Outside Exercise

It can be hard to keep a dog stimulated in your apartment in Carmel if there’s not places to run. Without opportunities to play, your dog may look for more creative ways to use their spunkiness and could start chewing on shoes and other items. To help your dog work off some of their energy, exercise them at least two times every day. You can play frisbee at the dog park, go for a jog, explore new trails, or go strolling around your apartment community. You and your pup will both get the exercise you need!

If your work schedule doesn’t let you take your dog out as often as they need, find someone else who can. Pay a trusted or friend to play with your dog every day or use a licensed dog walker or doggie daycare company. Many dogs like associating with other humans or dogs and the expense will be worth it if the company keeps your four-legged friend from becoming bored and chewing everything up.

Find Fun Toys To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In Your Apartment In Carmel

Your pet requires more than just lots of exercise. You can help keep your dog stimulated in your apartment in Carmel with fun and interesting toys too. Provide your dog with a variety of fun items that nurture curiosity, problem-solving, and fun play.

Toys that hide treats offer a fun challenge. Buy a pet camera to observe, communicate with, and provide treats to your dog when you’re out! Toys that squeak, roll, or bounce keep your dog interested. And chew toys will keep them content throughout the day. Consider building an obstacle course in your apartment to keep your canine moving while you’re away.

Plan Doggy Playdates

Getting social time is wonderful for your dog too. You enjoy getting out and socializing, and so do most dogs. If your furry friend is stuck in your apartment every day, they may not learn how to socialize with other people and animals. Then they become the dog who jumps up on people and barks at every passing thing.

Getting together with other pooches can make your dog happy. Take them to see family members with dogs or have them play at your apartment community’s dog park. Not only will your pooch like to see other dogs, but it’s a wonderful way to get to know your neighbors also.
