Why do Activities?
When considering activities for your pet, consider the following from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine*:
- Exercise helps keep pets healthy, agile and limber.
- Dogs need physical and mental stimulation each day.
- Exercise reduces the incidence of digestive problems and constipation. Exercise helps prevent depression.
- Sufficient exercise helps reduce or eliminate common behaviors such as digging, excessive barking, chewing and hyperactivity.
- Exercise helps prevent boredom and channels the dog’s energy in a productive, acceptable direction.
- It’s a good way to help a timid or fearful dog build confidence and trust.
