How To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In An Apartment In Bloomington

August 11, 2021

When you’re in a Bloomington apartment with a canine companion, you have to keep it entertained without the space that a house and yard offers. A spacious apartment floor plan helps, but you need to keep your dog entertained, or she might get curious and destroy things.

A place to exercise outside, the right toys, and puppy play dates can help keep your dog stimulated in an apartment in Bloomington, so you both enjoy your time spent renting.

Offer Your Pet Lots Of Outside Exercise

It can be tough keeping a dog stimulated in your apartment in Bloomington if there’s not places to run around. Without active play, your dog will look for more creative ways to expend their spunkiness and could start tearing up your apartment. To help your dog work off some of their active enthusiasm, exercise them at least two times every day. You can play fetch at the park, go running, find some new trails, or take a stroll around your apartment community. Your pup will get the physical activity they need, and you as well!

If your daily routine makes it difficult to take your dog out regularly, find somebody else who can. Hire a well-known or friend to exercise your dog every day or use a licensed dog walker or doggie daycare company. Many dogs enjoy associating with other humans or dogs and the cost will be worth it if the exercise keeps your dog from getting bored and destroying things.

Provide Fun Toys To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In Your Apartment In Bloomington

Your pet needs more than just daily exercise. You can keep your dog stimulated in your apartment in Bloomington with fun toys too. Give your dog different fun playthings that promote curiosity, solving problems, and movement.

Toys that hold hidden treats give your dog a fun challenge. Purchase a pet camera to observe, interact with, and provide treats to your dog while you’re away! Items that make noise, roll, or bounce keep your dog intrigued. And chew toys will keep them absorbed throughout the day. Consider building an obstacle course in your living room to keep your pup active throughout the day.

Schedule Doggy Playdates

Social stimulation is wonderful for your pooch as well. You enjoy getting out and socializing, and so does Fido. If your pet is kept in your apartment every day, they may not learn how to get along with other humans and animals. You don’t want them to be the dog who barks at everything, everyone and annoys your next-door neighbors.

Getting together with other canines can keep your dog happy and friendly. Take them to visit friends with dogs or have them play at your apartment community’s dog park. Not only will your dog like be around fellow dogs, but it’s a wonderful way to get to know your neighbors also.
