Can you handle a hyperactive dog? | Dandy's Store
Absolutely, keeping an energetic dog busy indoors can be fun and rewarding.
Here are 5 creative activities to help burn excess energy:
1 - Indoor agility course: set up a mini agility class using household items like pillows, cones, and boxes. Create obstacles for your dog to jump, cross and crawl under. This not only exercises their body but also engages their mind as they figure out the path.
2 - Hide and seek: dogs love to use their nose, so play hide and seek. Have your dog stay while you hide in various spots around the house. So call their name and let them find you. As they improve, you can even hide treats for them to discover.
3 - Treasure hunt: Hide treats or toys around the house and encourage your dog to find them. You can start with simple hiding places and gradually make them more challenging. This taps into their natural instinct to forage for food and keeps them mentally stimulated.
4 - DIY puzzle toys: make DIY puzzle toys using empty cardboard boxes, plastic bottles and other safe materials. Hide treats or kibble inside and let your dog figure out how to get the treats. This provides mental stimulation and engages their problem-solving skills.
5 - Teaching new tricks: teaching your dog new tricks is a great way to tire him out mentally. Whether it's learning to high-five, roll over, or play dummy, the training process keeps your mind sharp. Furthermore, strengthen the bond between you and your furry friend.
Remember, the safety it is crucial during these activities.
Make sure any items you use are safe for your dog to interact with and do not pose a choking hazard.
Always supervise your dog during play and tailor activities according to your dog's size, age and physical abilities.
