1. Hide and seek

Dogs love games very much. One such game in which your four-legged friend will be happy to participate and which you can play in the apartment is hide and seek . When you are going to play hide and seek, put your dog in the area, if your dog does not wait in the area, ask someone to distract him while you find a hiding place. When you are hidden, call your dog and praise him when he finds you, or you can also reward him with a treat. Dogs usually like this game very much, even if you hide in the same place several times, they will not be less impressed.

2. Take the dog for a walk

Want to give your pet a little more excitement? Take him to the park or discover new paths and places together. It's great exercise for him and you, and the dog will be excited and happy about all those new smells and scenery. If your dog is not ready for long walks, start with shorter ones and gradually increase. This will improve not only your dog's physical fitness, but also you. Oh, and don't forget to take a lot of fresh water with you, and on hot days don't forget the Natural Paw Refresher Spray and thus ensure your pet a walk full of joy and happiness.

3. Teach your dog some new fun tricks

Teach your dog some more tricks than just a few basic ones like sit, space, paw... In addition to these, you can teach him some fun tricks, for example walking through the legs, fetch, bow, spin, ask, give a voice... There are many tricks that your dog can learn. You just have to decide what you want to teach him and be persistent.

4. The game of hiding treats

To play this game, all you need is a carrot, an apple or some other treat. If it is a carrot, for example, cut it into small pieces and hide them around the house/apartment. While you are doing this, the dog should not watch you or follow you. When you have hidden all the pieces in their places, give your four-legged friend a signal such as "seek" and watch him happily search for his treats. These types of games are great for dogs, as they use their natural sense of smell in a fun way .

5. Cuddling on the couch

Cuddling on the couch is a great way to calm down and relax your pet at the end of the day. And don't worry, dogs aren't picky about what to watch, so you don't have to worry about that. Just choose what you want to watch and enjoy together with your pet.

6. Tug of war

Dogs tend to love this game. It's fun, encourages canine thinking and is good exercise too. And don't think that this game will make your dog aggressive. Don't worry, it won't. Just be sure that when you tell your dog to let go, he lets go and knows that the game is over whenever he touches your hand with his teeth.

7. Throw - bring

Take a ball or any other toy and throw it, and your dog will bring it to you again and again with great pleasure. This game is very simple and very fun for your dog to play. You just throw the ball and let your four-legged friend do its thing.

8. Swimming

Take your dog to a nearby lake or to the sea, especially if he really likes water. Swimming is the perfect exercise for your dog , especially if your dog is older and has joint problems, and it's also a lot of fun. If your dog is not used to water, it is better to go to low water in the beginning and later, when he is brave enough, to higher water. To prevent the unpleasant smell of your pet after bathing, we recommend using the Natural Spray for Fragrant Fur .

9. Sniffing on a walk

Looking for an easy way to please your dog? Let him sniff around on a walk . Walking is more than just exercise for our dogs; it's a time when they get out and see what's going on in and around the neighborhood. When people are outside, we look at what is happening around us with our eyes, and dogs use their snouts for this. By letting him sniff around, you give him a chance to really explore the world around him. You can spice up your walk a little more by stopping for a few minutes and letting him smell everything around him.

10. Change in walking routine

Walking the same route every day eventually becomes boring, and this lack of inspiration can also make it difficult for us to stick to our daily walking routine. So, we can also motivate ourselves by taking our four-legged friend along new paths , through some other neighborhood, or sometimes we simply follow him.

11. Changing toys

Does your dog get bored of his toys? If so, you can change his toys and that way the old toys will be like new for him again. So instead of having all of your dog's toys available to you, put some away and leave only one or two available to your dog. Once a week, exchange these toys with the rest. You will notice that your dog will be as happy and excited every time you change his toys as if you had brought him a new one.

12. Children's pool

If you and your pet spend a lot of time outside in the yard, install a kiddie pool. It's a lot of fun for dogs, and in the hot summer months it's also a great way for them to cool off .

13. Visiting family/friends

A very easy way to make your dog happy is to take it with you to visit family/friends. Dogs are social animals and the fact that dogs have the opportunity to socialize or to be among people means a lot to them.

14. Dog date

Do any of your friends, family, neighbors have a dog that gets along with yours? If so, give your four-legged friend a date. Invite them (dog and owner) to your home. Go for a walk together or have them play in the yard. You can spend time with the owner.

15. Dog massage

We humans love a good massage because it relaxes us and relieves stress, and the same goes for our dogs. By massaging him, he will relax and calm down. Massage is also great for dogs with arthritis as it stimulates muscles and improves circulation.
