How To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In An Apartment In Lafayette

August 11, 2021

When living in a Lafayette apartment with a dog, you have to keep it entertained without the outdoor space that a house and backyard can give you. A modern apartment floor plan helps, but your pooch should get their energy out, or she might become destructive.

A place to exercise outside, the right toys, and doggy play dates can help keep your dog stimulated in an apartment in Lafayette, so you both enjoy your renting experience.

Give Your Dog Plenty Of Outside Activity

It can be hard to keep a dog stimulated in an apartment in Lafayette if they don’t have much space. Without active play, your dog may look for ways to use their extra energy and could start destroying your things. To help your dog use some of their active enthusiasm, exercise them at least twice each day. You can play frisbee at the dog run, go running, explore new trails, or take a stroll around your apartment community. You and your pup will both get the physical activity you need!

If your work schedule makes it hard to exercise your dog as often as they need, find somebody else who can. Hire a trusted or friend to play with your dog once a day or find a professional dog walker or daycare company. Most dogs enjoy associating with a human friend or other dogs and the price will be worth it if the exercise keeps your pup from getting bored and destructive.

Find The Right Toys To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In Your Apartment In Lafayette

Your furry friend requires more than just physical exercise. You can keep your dog stimulated in your apartment in Lafayette with fun and interesting toys too. Give your dog lots of interesting playthings that promote curiosity, solving problems, and movement.

Toys that hide treats give your dog a fun challenge. Invest in a pet camera to monitor, communicate with, and give treats to your dog when you’re out! Toys that squeak, roll, or bounce keep your dog intrigued. And chew toys will keep them happy throughout the day. Consider building an obstacle course in your living room to keep your dog moving while you’re away.

Organize Doggy Playdates

Being social is vital for your pooch too. You enjoy getting out and socializing, and so does Fido. If your furry friend is stuck in your apartment all of the time, they might not learn how to get along with other people and animals. You don’t want them to be the dog who barks at everything and everyone and bothers your neighbors.

Playdates with other canines can make your dog happy. Bring them along when you visit family members with dogs or have them visit your apartment community’s dog park. Not only will your pooch like to socialize, but it’s a wonderful way to socialize with your neighbors as well.
