Ways To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In The Apartment In Westfield

August 11, 2021

Apartment life can be hard for dogs. A modern apartment floor plan helps, but your pup needs to get their energy out, or she might become destructive.

Outdoor exercise, the right toys, and puppy play dates can all keep your dog stimulated in an apartment in Westfield, so you both enjoy your renting experience.

Give Your Dog Lots Of Outdoor Exercise

It can be hard to keep a dog stimulated in your apartment in Westfield if they don’t have much space. Without chances to exercise, your dog might look for other ways to get out their spunkiness and could start destroying your things. To help your pooch work off some of that playful energy, exercise them at least twice each day. You can catch a frisbee at the dog run, go for a jog, hike trails, or take a stroll around your apartment community. You and your dog will both get the physical activity you need!

If your daily routine doesn’t let you exercise your dog regularly, find somebody else who can. Hire a dependable neighbor or friend to exercise your dog every day or invest in a professional dog walker or doggie daycare service. Most dogs love hanging out with other humans or dogs and the price will be worth it if the exercise keeps your four-legged friend from becoming bored and destructive.

Buy Interesting Toys To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In Your Apartment In Westfield

Your furry friend requires more than just physical exercise. You can keep your dog stimulated in your apartment in Westfield with fun toys too. Give your dog different fun toys that encourage curiosity, problem-solving, and movement.

Toys that hold hidden treats give your dog a fun challenge. Purchase a doggy camera to watch, 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 happy for hours. Consider building an obstacle course in your apartment to keep your pup active while you’re away.

Plan Doggy Playdates

Getting social time is wonderful for your dog as well. You need to get out with other people, and so might your dog. If your furry friend is confined to your apartment all of the time, they might not learn how to interact with other people and pets. Then they become the dog who barks at everything, everyone and bothers your neighbors.

Getting together with other canines can make your dog happy. Bring them along when you see friends with dogs or have them play at your apartment community’s dog park. Not only will your pooch like to socialize, but it’s a great way to socialize with your neighbors too.
