How To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In The Apartment In Fishers

August 11, 2021

Apartment life can be hard for dogs and pets. A spacious apartment floor plan helps, but your dog should be engaged, or she might damage your things.

Outdoor exercise, fun toys, and canine play dates can help keep your dog stimulated in an apartment in Fishers, so both you and your pooch have a wonderful time spent renting.

Offer Your Pet Lots Of Outside Activity

It can be hard to keep a dog stimulated in your apartment in Fishers if your dog doesn’t have much room. Without active play, your dog will look for other ways to use their energy and could start chewing on shoes and other items. To help your dog expend some of that playful energy, take them out for exercise at least twice a day. You can throw a ball at the park, go for a jog, explore new trails, or take a stroll around your apartment community. Your pet will get the physical activity they need, and you will too!

If your schedule makes it difficult to exercise your dog as often as they need, find another person who can. Hire a trusted or friend to play with your dog every day or invest in a licensed dog walker or doggie daycare company. Many dogs love hanging out with a human friend or other dogs and the cost will be well worth it if the activity and company keeps your pup from getting bored and chewing everything up.

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

Your pet needs more than just physical exercise. You can help keep your dog stimulated in your apartment in Fishers with fun and interesting toys too. Provide your dog with different fun toys that nurture curiosity, problem-solving, and fun play.

Toys that have hidden treats challenge your dog in a fun way. Invest in a doggy camera to monitor, interact with, and provide treats to your dog when you’re out! Items that make noise, roll, or bounce keep your dog interested. And chew toys will keep them content for hours. Or try creating an obstacle course in your living room to keep your dog active while you’re away.

Schedule Doggy Playdates

Getting social time is important for your pooch too. You enjoy getting out and socializing, and so do most dogs. If your dog is confined to your apartment 24/7, they may not learn how to interact with other people and pets. You don’t want them to be the dog who barks at everything, everyone and annoys your neighbors.

Playdates with other canines can keep your dog happy and friendly. Bring them along when you see friends with dogs or have them play at your apartment community’s dog park. Not only will your dog like be around fellow dogs, but it’s a great way to meet your neighbors too.
