You own a Saint Bernard, a Mastiff, or an Irish Wolfhound. Perhaps you own a Rottie or Doberman. Maybe your large dog is a mixed breed pup. Regardless of the breed of your large dog, your pooch needs daily activity - both mental and physical stimulation. Furthermore, your dog relies on you to provide this activity. Never fear, there are multiple fun activities you can partake in with your pup in order to keep them busy. If you find that your dog is fairly easy to train, there are several fun and stimulating activities you can do with your dog in order to provide the activity they need and keep them out of mischief.
It is always important to give any dog adequate exercise; however, you will want to give larger, easy to train dogs activity appropriate to their age and activity level. You can use home-made toys and obstacle courses in order to exercise indoors. You can also move outside and utilize your backyard to provide adequate activity for your pup. Keep in mind that some larger dogs are prone to joint issues such as dysplasia and arthritis. Try to keep activities low-impact in order to prevent injury. Enjoy your bonding time with your dog!
