Man, that dog has a lot of energy! If you have ever found yourself saying this about your pup then you have found the right article - we will help you find ways to keep that high energy dog busy! Taking care of a high energy dog can be a lot of work. You want to keep your dog happy and enable them to get out some of that energy but you also have to keep yourself sane (you can only go to the dog park so many times…). A high energy dog needs an outlet for all that power and this guide will help you find the best one for that dog.
Playing ball with your dog is a classic way to help your dog get out pent up energy. You throw, they run. Simple as that! This activity may be simple but the benefits are so amazing. There is nothing better to help your dog get out energy than constant running. If your dog doesn't like to drop the ball upon their return, just get two balls! Throw one, have your dog run to get it, then throw another- never let them stop!
While you may know that taking your dog for a walk or a hike will help them get out some energy, adding a doggy backpack to the equation is even more beneficial. High energy dogs have active minds and by giving them a job, like carrying a backpack, they will feel as though they have a purpose. Doggy backpacks also just add extra weight to your dog's back and therefore a walk with a backpack will tired them out more. If you see a backpack that you like on another dog, make an inquiry as to where to get one for your canine pal.
All that dog energy can be exhausting to us humans. Sometimes, you might just need a break. However, your dog probably never needs a break and their high energy is constant. What to do? Find a doggy daycare! Doggy day cares are the perfect place for you pup to go just to get out of the house and be able to run and play with other dogs and humans. You can stay at home, go shopping, go to work or do just about anything you'd like all the while knowing that your pup is having fun and getting out some of that excess energy.
You may love that your dog has a lot of energy or you may find it to be a burden. Whatever your feelings toward your pup's energy level, it is a fact that you have to work with. Making your dog's life happy is of the upmost importance, so pick an activity and get ready to help your dog stay happy and healthy by using their excess energy in a productive way. Happy walking!
