Interactive Dog Toys

Interactive Dog Toys

Using food dispensing toys, such as the Kong Wobbler and Bob-A-Lot Treat Dispenser, are an easy way to give your dog some more mental stimulation and relieve dog boredom at the same time.

Do-It-Yourself Snack

Do-It-Yourself Snack

Put snacks along with your pup's daily vitamin into an empty cardboard tube. Fold and tape the ends shut. Perforate the tube a little with a fork or knife and give your dog a fun challenge. This is especially rewarding for dogs who like to tear things up! And if your doggie loves his daily vitamin a little too much, it's nice to give him an extra treat or two along with it, so he doesn't think you're being stingy!

Play Some Tug-Of-War With Your Dog

Play Some Tug-Of-War With Your Dog

Take a break and play tug. Go at it good and hard, and it will work wonders for tiring out your fur buddy. Contrary to myth, playing tug of war with your dog will not make him aggressive.

Get Your Dog A Jolly Ball

Any big ball toy can be a lot of fun, but jolly balls just tend to be more durable. Some dogs love playing with these all by themselves, but of course you can always make it more interesting by playing with them.

Nose Hunting

Nose Hunting

Hiding treats around the house is a fun way to add mental stimulation to their routine. It’s one of the most versatile games you can teach your dog. It can be played anywhere, with toys or treats you already have.

Digging Box

Digging Box

Do you have a yard or outdoor area? Make your dog their own personal digging box! Bury toys in it and let them find it; some dogs love digging so much this can keep them entertained for hours.

Frozen Peanut Butter Filled Kong. Read that again. It's genius. Kong + peanut butter can keep a dog engaged for a long tasty time.

Give Them A View

Give Them A View

Some dogs are content to just sit at the window and stare. It is their nature to be inquisitive, social, and protective. Dogs like to know what’s happening outside so give them a chance to scope out the yard. A lot of dogs love napping in the warm sunlight in front of windows.

A very simple thing to do is to make sure a window is accessible: move a couch or chair under the window so your dog can easily get up there to survey their world.

Kiddie Pool

Kiddie Pool

Many dogs love a good swim – not just Labs. It’s an amazing exercise for dogs with arthritis since it’s low impact.
You can float toys or frozen treats (try making cubes out of yogurt, or broth) for a fun attention-getting challenge. Keep a few in your freezer and you can toss a new one in the pool as needed.

Love Your Dog, Daily!

Love Your Dog, Daily!

Sometimes all your bored dog wants is a little attention. Take 2 minutes to sit be her side and give her reassuring pets, snuggle her face, talk to her in that kind voice that she loves to hear.
Don't forget to show love to your loveable pup, by making sure she gets her dog vitamin, every day!
