There are no excuses for not helping your buddy getting the health he deserves, even if you are not feeling like going for a run outside or the weather is bad. There are a number of exercises you can put your dog through, like running up and down the stairs and playing a good old fashioned fetch game.
4. Have Mental Stimulation Activities
Doing some stimulating activities can be great for your dog’s mental health, which is as important as its physical health. There’s actually a long range of options when it comes to this with the help of simulation games and the use of dog toys.
Finding the treat, playing the shuffle game, puzzle toys and a simple exploration walk can be very fun and rewarding experiences for your dog. Also, consider the help of a professional dog trainer to help you with these tasks.
5. More Healthy Food
It’s a no brainer right? We all should eat healthier food and our little four-legged friends are not different. A high-quality dog food diet means the prevention of being overweight, lesser risks of health problems and even can have good cognitive stimulating effects.
Consider healthy dog treats like fruits (apple and banana slices), jerky sticks, and veggies (baby carrots, broccoli, and green beans). Commercial food isn’t necessarily bad, but try to avoid giving your pup high-on-fat and sugary products. Other options to avoid are foods that are hard on their teeth!
6. Dental Care
Speaking on teeth; Dental health must be a part of your dog’s life to avoid problems like tartar, gingivitis, and the buildup of plaque.
Sleeping on this issue can lead to bigger problems like bad infections that could be life-threatening, so it’s best to start with the hygiene the earliest possible.
Dog teeth cleaning brushes are important items to have and when you are doing so make sure the puppy isn’t agitated to avoid hurting him but also reward him with treats after completing such task. Regarding these treats, consider chewing toys that clean their teeth.
