The majority of pet dogs I see are under stimulated. Some are downright bored!
This causes problems. After all, a dog that isn't given a job will go self employed! That isn't something you want.
Nuisance barking, chewing, pulling on the lead and no recall all to name a few.
Now this isn't to say that enrichment alone will solve all of your problems......
It WILL help!
So I thought over the next few weeks I would show you some enrichment ideas to do with your dog.
These won't cost the earth and chances are you have these items hanging around the house.
So here we go!
1) Toilet Rolls
I save these and the inside of kitchen rolls up. I fold one end, as shown, pop a few pieces of kibble in and fold the other.
I then give this to my pooch to destroy.
This technique is great for dogs who like to kill soft toys like my girl does. She gets the outlet of shredding something but it doesn't cost me a penny.
You can use their normal kibble of high quality treats.
Be careful to tidy up after your pup and don't leave the cardboard hanging around. Ingesting a small amount shouldn't be a problem but you certainly don't want them to be scoffing it all.
