This activity involves attaching a toy to a length of string, rope, cord or bungee cord. You then connect the tethered toy to a stick, rod, pole or piece of PVC pipe. Twirl, drag, or swing the toy around your dog, allowing them to catch it a few times until one of you need a break. Your dog will happily chase that toy for hours.
Chew toys are used in a variety of ways. Not only can they give your pet the essential chewing practice, but also they can become the focus of a toss and fetch type of game. Just choose the toy, toss it away from you and your dog, then encourage your precious pooch to retrieve and return it to you. This routine can be repeated as many times as needed to provide the mental and physical stimulation required by your canine companion.
The hunt for dinner activity is one which serves two purposes. You can entertain and exercise your dog while you feed them. All you need to do is hide the kibble or treats around the house, and then encourage your precious pooch to search for the food. You'll be entertained yourself as you watch them munch away happily.
