Sometimes, your pooch may have a harder time getting used to apartment life more than you. An open apartment floor plan helps, but your pooch needs to get their energy out, or she might get curious and destroy things.

Outside exercising, engaging toys, and doggy play dates can help keep your dog stimulated in an apartment in Brownsburg, so you both have a wonderful apartment experience.

Provide Your Dog With Lots Of Outdoor Exercise

It can be hard to keep a dog stimulated in an apartment in Brownsburg if your dog doesn’t have spaces to run around. Without opportunities to play, your dog may look for other ways to expend their energy and could start tearing up your apartment. To help your pooch use some of their active enthusiasm, take them out to play at least two times every day. You can play frisbee at the dog park, go on a run, find some new trails, or take a stroll around your apartment community. Your pet will get the exercise they need, and so will you!

If your schedule doesn’t let you take your dog out regularly, find another person who can. Pay a trusted or friend to play with your dog once a day or use a licensed dog walker or doggie daycare service. Most dogs enjoy hanging out with a human friend or other dogs and the cost will be well worth it if the company keeps your dog from getting bored and destructive.

Buy The Right Toys To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In Your Apartment In Brownsburg

Your dog requires more than just daily exercise. You can keep your dog stimulated in your apartment in Brownsburg with the right toys too. Give your dog lots of fun toys that encourage curiosity, problem-solving, and fun play.

Toys that hold hidden treats challenge your dog in a fun way. Invest in a doggy camera to monitor, communicate with, and provide treats to your dog when you’re out! Items that make noise, roll, or light up keep your dog intrigued. And chew toys will keep them content for hours. Consider building an obstacle course in your space to keep your dog active while you’re away.

Plan Doggy Playdates

Being social is important for your pooch too. You need to get out with other people, and so might your dog. If your pet is kept in your apartment all of the time, they might not learn how to socialize with other humans and animals. You don’t want them to be the dog who barks at everything, everyone and annoys your neighbors.

Hanging out with other dogs can keep your dog happy and friendly. Pack them in the car when you see family members with dogs or have them go to your apartment community’s dog park. Not only will your dog like to socialize, but it’s a wonderful way to chat with your neighbors too.
