How To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In Your Apartment In Westfield

Apartment life can be an adjustment for dogs and pets. A spacious apartment floor plan helps, but your pup should get their energy out, or she might get curious and destroy things.

Outside exercising, fun toys, and canine play dates can help keep your dog stimulated in an apartment in Westfield, so both you and your pooch enjoy your apartment experience.

Provide Your Dog With Lots Of Outdoor Activity

It can be tough keeping a dog stimulated in an apartment in Westfield if they don’t have places to run around. Without active play, your dog might look for ways to use their extra energy and could start destroying your things. To help your dog use some of that playful energy, exercise them at least two times each day. You can throw a ball at the dog park, go running, hike trails, or walk around your apartment community. Your pup will get the movement they need, and you will too!

If your schedule makes it hard to take your dog out as often as they need, find another person who can. Hire a dependable neighbor or friend to walk your dog every day or invest in a professional dog walker or doggie daycare company. Many dogs like associating with other humans or dogs and the price will be worth it if the company keeps your pup from getting bored and chewing everything up.

Find Fun Toys To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In Your Apartment In Westfield

Your furry friend needs more than just physical exercise. You can keep your dog stimulated in your apartment in Westfield with fun toys too. Give your dog lots of fun items that nurture curiosity, solving problems, and fun play.

Toys that hide treats challenge your dog in a fun way. Invest in a doggy camera to monitor, interact with, and offer treats to your dog while you’re away! Items that squeak, roll, or light up keep your dog intrigued. And chew toys will keep them content for hours. You can even set up an obstacle course in your space to keep your pup active while you’re away.

Organize Doggy Playdates

Being social is vital for your pet too. You need to get out with other people, and so might your dog. If your furry friend is stuck in your apartment all of the time, they may not learn how to interact with other people and animals. You don’t want them to be the dog who barks at everything, everyone and annoys your neighbors.

Playdates with other pooches can make your dog happy. Bring them along when you visit family members with dogs or have them go to your apartment community’s dog park. Not only will your dog like to socialize, but it’s a great way to meet your neighbors also.
