Pets are our companions in life, so it is up to us as their owners, to care for them as best we can. We take our dogs out for walks daily and we take them to the veterinarian when they are ill.
However, our furry allies also require mental stimulation; dog puzzle toys are a very owner friendly and animal friendly way to achieve said stimulation for your pet.
Mental stimulation of most domesticated animals, especially canines; will result in a sharper, keener and more responsive animal. This is even more apparent if the animal is exposed to activities that engage mental stimuli at an early age. Puzzles in this case will encourage investigative behavior and problem solving, the harder the puzzle toy is, the longer your pup will stay engaged with it.
Apart from making your furry friend smarter, mental activity increases the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to the brain, keeping your dog happy and healthy at the same time. With that said, we can’t always be there for our little friends, we all have responsibilities such as employment or a romantic interest that keeps us away from them a few hours a day. That’s why having an ample amount of toys that your dog can engage with is paramount in this day and age. You wouldn’t want to be left alone all day without having anything to do right? Then why make your little companion go through that?
The variety of dog toys is also important, your buddy might get bored if he only has one type of toy or puzzle. Experiment around with what your animal enjoys the most, see what he likes but also make sure to let it be able to try new things. If you do it right, you’ll be making sure that your dog is happy, healthy and well taken care of.
