Engage in Thoughtful Playtime With Your Dog

Although the moments we spend with our dogs may seem routine day in and day out, every moment is one that can be memorable.

When I start to encourage playtime with my dogs, I first let them pick up the scent of whatever toy we are going to play with. By letting them smell the toy, you are getting their full interest and they will be focused on the game. I think one of the best games you can play with your dog involves a search and rescue theme, where the dog has to seek out the hidden object using all of his senses.

I think it is also important to engage in a little play yourself. So often we get lost on the track of work and family that we forget how to have some fun for ourselves. It can be as simple as a bike ride or a game night at home, but it is really important to get out there and just play!

Your pets can help you achieve this playful time too, they don’t have to be separate events. And by incorporating your pets into your personal playtime, you are creating an even healthier lifestyle for yourself too! Scheduling playtime with your dog every week is a great way to add extra physical and psychological exercise to your walk routine—although it should never be a substitute for the walk. This also allows your dog to express all the special needs and abilities of his breed. You can play fetch, swim in the pool, play with a Frisbee, learn new tricks, or run an obstacle course, whatever your pleasure or your dog’s special talent.
