#1 – Teach Your Dog a New Trick
‘Teach a new trick’ is an activity that can benefit dogs of all ages. As stated the dog trainer Andrea Arden, teaching your dog or puppy new tricks boosts their confidence, enhances concentration, deepens the communicative dog-human bond, and improves your pooch’s overall health.
To keep your pooch mentally stimulated, it is important to teach them basic commands like sit, heel, and stay. If you want to take this training further, you can even teach your pooch to high five, shake hands, or play dead.
