How To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In Your Apartment In Fishers

August 11, 2021

As a pet owner, you know that your canine companion might have a harder time loving apartment life more than you. A modern apartment floor plan helps, but your pup needs to be happy, or she might damage your things.

Outside exercising, engaging toys, and puppy play dates can help keep your dog stimulated in an apartment in Fishers, so both you and your pooch have a wonderful renting experience.

Provide Your Dog With Plenty Of Outside Time

It can be hard to keep a dog stimulated in your apartment in Fishers if they don’t have much room. Without chances to exercise, your dog may look for ways to use their extra energy and could start chewing on shoes and other items. To help your pooch use some of their energy, take them out for exercise at least twice every day. You can play frisbee at the dog run, go for a jog, find some new trails, or go strolling around your apartment community. You and your pup will both get the exercise you need!

If your schedule makes it hard to exercise your dog regularly, find somebody else who can. Pay a dependable neighbor or friend to play with your dog once a day or use a professional dog walker or doggie daycare service. Many dogs enjoy associating with a human friend or other dogs and the price will be worth it if the exercise keeps your four-legged friend from getting bored and chewing everything up.

Buy Interesting Toys To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In Your Apartment In Fishers

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

Toys that hide treats challenge your dog in a fun way. Purchase a pet camera to observe, interact with, and give treats to your dog when you’re out! Toys that make noise, roll, or light up keep your dog interested. And chew toys will keep them happy throughout the day. Consider building an obstacle course in your space to keep your dog moving while you’re away.

Organize Doggy Playdates

Being social is important for your pet as well. You enjoy getting out and socializing, and so do most dogs. If your furry friend is confined to your apartment every day, they might not learn how to get along with other humans and animals. You don’t want them to be the dog who jumps on people and barks at every passing thing.

Playdates with other canines can keep your dog happy and friendly. Take them to see friends 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 nice way to meet your neighbors as well.
