Ways To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In The Apartment In Carmel

August 11, 2021

Apartment living can be hard for your canine companions. A spacious apartment floor plan helps, but you need to keep your pup engaged, or she might damage your things.

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

Offer Your Pet Lots Of Outdoor Time

It can be tough keeping a dog stimulated in an apartment in Carmel if your dog doesn’t have much room. Without active play, your dog might look for other ways to use their spunkiness and could start destroying your things. To help your pooch use some of their active enthusiasm, exercise them at least two times every day. You can catch a frisbee at the dog park, go on a run, hike trails, or go strolling around your apartment community. Your pet will get the exercise they need, and you will too!

If your schedule doesn’t let you exercise your dog every day, find another person who can. Pay a dependable neighbor or friend to play with your dog every day or use a licensed dog walker or doggie daycare service. Many dogs like being around a human friend or other dogs and the cost will be worth it if the company keeps your four-legged friend from becoming bored and chewing everything up.

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

Your dog needs more than just physical exercise. You can help keep your dog stimulated in your apartment in Carmel with fun toys too. Provide your dog with lots of interesting toys that nurture curiosity, solving problems, and fun play.

Toys that hide treats challenge your dog in a fun way. Buy a doggy camera to observe, communicate with, and give treats to your dog throughout the day! Items that squeak, roll, or light up keep your dog interested. And chew toys will keep them happy for hours. You can even set up an obstacle course in your living room to keep your dog active while you’re away.

Plan Doggy Playdates

Being social is important for your pet as well. You like to get out of the house and socialize, and so might your dog. If your dog is kept in your apartment all of the time, they may not learn how to get along with other people and pets. You don’t want them to be the dog who jumps on everyone and barks at every passing thing.

Getting together with other dogs can put your dog in a good mood. Bring them along when you see friends and family with dogs or have them visit your apartment community’s dog park. Not only will your dog like be around fellow dogs, but it’s a great way to socialize with your neighbors as well.
