Sometimes dogs and pup’s display naughty behaviour and often this turns out to be due to boredom so try these tips to keep your puppy out of trouble? Read on for more info…
Puppy Sandpit: Buy or make your puppy a sandpit. Use non toxic sand and bury food treats within to encourage your puppy to dig there, not your garden!
Food Stuffed Toys: Buy a Kong toy and fill it with your pup’s breakfast, seal with a little peanut butter or cream cheese and leave them to work out how to get the food out, great to stop them chewing your things.
Cardboard Puzzle Box: Fill a cardboard box with treats and scrunched up newspaper. Tape up the box with a few holes in it to allow the scent of the treats to attract your dog’s attention. Let them play and destruct the box, which in turn stops them destructing furniture!
Ice lollies: Make gravy ice cubes or lollies without the sticks and give them to your dog to cool them down on a hot day or just as a tasty treat.
Treat balls and cubes: Fill a treat cube with their food and rotate. They will have fun pushing it around and learning how to effectively get the treats out.
