Enrich your pup’s life with Mental Stimulation Games!
Mental stimulation is just as important for dogs as it is for humans. It can help prevent behavioural problems and destructive tendencies. A mentally stimulated dog is a happy and healthy dog. There are many ways to provide mental stimulation for dogs, and incorporating a variety of activities into their routine can help keep them engaged and fulfilled.
One way to provide mental stimulation for dogs is through training. Teaching them new tricks and commands not only keeps their mind active, but it also strengthens the bond between the dog and the owner. Basic obedience training, such as sit, stay, and come, is a great place to start. But for more advanced dogs, you can teach them more complex tricks like rolling over, playing dead, or even agility courses.
Below are a few other enrichment activities that tap into your dog’s natural instincts and encourage them to use their sense of smell and to problem-solve.
