Set aside time to play a game. This can come in the form of playing with a toy, teaching them to play hide and seek with you, or by hiding a toy for them to find. These sessions don’t have to be long. Take a 5-minute break and see what a difference it can make!
Go for a walk. This seems like a no-brainer when it comes to dogs, but oftentimes we’re in a hurry to get back to what we need to do. It’s important to take your dog on a walk that exercises both mind and body at least once a day.
If you need to keep them occupied while you attend to other things, use treat or puzzle toys (But be sure to balance these out with their meals so they’re not overeating!)
Incorporate training sessions into your day. Dogs and cats alike can benefit from learning new things and they’ll love interacting with you!
Ideas for all of these things can be found online, just be sure to keep it positive and fun for all involved! Incorporating them into your day can help you as well as them, strengthening the human/animal bond in the process.
