Especially with a new puppy, you'll hear 20 times a day, play with your puppy, exercise your puppy, stimulate your puppy so they don’t get bored, bond with them to create a strong relationship…OK OK, we get it’s important but after 160 games of fetch things get a little...well, boring. In this episode, I’m going to go through 10 ways to play with your dog. And this is just to get you started, it doesn’t stop here, not even close. In reality, there are hundreds of ways to play with your dog. I want you and your dog to get creative and take it from here. With the cold weather settling in here in NJ I decided to concentrate on indoor activities. It’s easy to take things outside and get all the exercise and entertainment you need. It’s when you're stuck inside that things get harder. No matter what activity we do with them, we are entertaining, stimulating, and bonding with them. It’s tiring them out that can sometimes seem impossible. That is why I also focused on ways that will up the exercise and tiring out factor. At the end of the day (literally) what we want is a tired and happy dog! Your dog will probably have their favorites. I hope you can find something you love, your dog loves AND gets everyone to sleep! Let’s get those creative juices going!! Press play to listen and enjoy!!
