Tips for keeping dogs healthy and happy during quarantine!

 

It might sound like a dream for most dogs to have their owners hanging around and never leaving. But a change in the status quo for you and the human kids will have an effect on them emotionally, too. Your every day is way different than it was a month ago, and so is theirs. Here are some of our tips to get your companion living their best lockdown life.
 
Keep them enriched while indoors

You may not be able to keep your dog as physically active during lockdown, but you can still keep them mentally active! Use this time to engage in training exercises and consider using puzzle toys or treat dispensers to keep them entertained and rewarded.

Show them all the love

Extra care and attention are key, if you’re feeling the coronavirus stress then chances are they are too.

 

It’s important to stay engaged with your pups - a bond between human and canine is strong, and fostering that will help everybody through tough times! But be careful that you do not show this love through extra food treats.  Obesity is a major problem amongst our pets and we need to make sure that the extra love does not turn into extra weight.

Make the most of your daily exercise

Each person in the household can use their daily exercise to take the dog for a walk and your dog will certainly appreciate the walk. Just don’t forget to maintain social distancing.
