Environmental enrichment for dogs

Dogs have always been active animals, they were born to be. As pet owners, it is important to keep our dogs physically fit, as well as mentally. For many pet families, owners will often go to work during the day and their dog will be home by themselves. This couldn’t be a better time for physical and mental enrichment. We are lucky at the moment to have so many products available, something as great as a ‘Kong’. Kong's are sturdy rubber toys that you can jam pack with treats or alternatively their breakfast or dinner. There are also many different brands/ toys you can buy. There are also hundreds of recipes online you can use of what to fill them with. When the weather starts to warm up, something you can look at is filling up an ice cube tray with treats and water. A great way to occupy them in summer and keep them cool!
