Dr Louisa’s Top Tips on How to Keep Encouraging Play!

When dogs are bored or lonely, they will create their own games which may lead to inappropriate and destructive behaviour.

When you have time with your dog, why not make an assault course to keep them occupied? Use chairs to walk around/on, and towels/mops/pillows/rugs to walk over. If you have spare soil or bark for your garden, you could create a digging area and hide toys or treats in there for some supervised digging.

If you don’t have outside space, I would also recommend getting creative by putting cardboard boxes together, cutting holes in them to make-shift your own maze and tunnels.
