Boredom and lack of exercise are the leading causes of destructive behavior in dogs. This comes as no surprise, and we must provide our dogs with physical and mental exercise to fulfill them as individuals and relieve many of our pet-related frustrations.
Taking your dog on long walks, going jogging, playing fetch or tug are all great ways to provide your pet with physical exercise and interact with our dog, but some days our schedules don’t allow us entertain our dogs as often as we’d like.
There are a variety of toys on the market that are designed to provide our dogs with mental and physical exercise and enrichment without human interaction. These “interactive” toys provide a puzzle for dogs, allowing them to entertain themselves and occupy their attention when we are unable.
