How To Keep Your Dog Stimulated In Your Apartment In Indianapolis

August 11, 2021

When you reside in a Indianapolis apartment with a dog or other pet, you need to keep it from feeling cooped up without the space that a house and yard can provide. An open apartment floor plan helps, but you should keep your pooch entertained, or he might damage your things.

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

Offer Your Pet Lots Of Outdoor Exercise

It can be tough keeping a dog stimulated in your apartment in Indianapolis if your dog doesn’t have spaces to explore. Without opportunities to play, your dog will look for ways to use their spunkiness and could start destroying your things. To help your dog use some of their energy, take them out for exercise at least twice each day. You can play frisbee at the park, go on a run, find some new trails, or go strolling around your apartment community. Your pet will get the exercise they need, and you will too!

If your schedule makes it difficult to take your dog out every day, find somebody else who can. Pay a well-known or friend to exercise your dog once a day or find a professional dog walker or doggie daycare company. Most dogs love associating with other humans or dogs and the price will be well worth it if the exercise keeps your four-legged friend from becoming bored and destructive.

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

Your furry friend needs more than just daily exercise. You can keep your dog stimulated in your apartment in Indianapolis with the right toys too. Offer your pup lots of fun items that nurture curiosity, solving problems, and movement.

Toys that hide treats offer a fun challenge. Purchase a doggy camera to monitor, communicate with, and give treats to your dog throughout the day! Playthings that make noise, roll, or light up keep your dog interested. And chew toys will keep them content throughout the day. Or try creating an obstacle course in your space to keep your canine moving while you’re away.

Plan Doggy Playdates

Getting social time is wonderful for your dog as well. You need to get out with other people, and so might your dog. If your furry friend is kept in your apartment all of the time, they may not learn how to get along with other humans and pets. Then they become the dog who barks at everything and everyone and annoys your neighbors.

Being around other dogs can keep your dog happy and friendly. Bring them along when you visit family members with dogs or have them play at your apartment community’s dog park. Not only will your dog like to socialize, but it’s a wonderful way to socialize with your neighbors too.
