Do you want a sneak peak into one of my training sessions?
Here’s a little smattering of my favorite toys and enrichment activities you can do with and for your dog which will add another outlet in guiding your dog towards some relaxation!
First, meals don’t need to happen in a bowl.
You can feed meals in a variety of ways which gets your dog thinking, doing something fun and productive and even slows down those Hoover dogs!
Using a snuffle mat (see below) have all sorts of nooks you can hide food in which encourages your dog to forage.
If your dog enjoys a bit more of a challenge like Jack, up-cycle those empty egg cartons into a puzzle feeder and place your dog’s meals in them.
Watch the fun your dog’s have when they are finding all the bits!
Other great options of adding in some enriching activities your dog can do with you are using your broom and make it into a jumping pole.
Place it flat on the ground and encourage your dog to step over it.
As your dog is comfortable, you slowly raise it up off the ground.
Even encourage your dog to crawl underneath it!
