Dogs need exercise, but not just physical exercise. For some dogs physical exercise is just not enough! What they need is mental exercise.
Mental exercise can actually be more tiring than physical exercise. Think about it: you come home from work and you’re so tired. Why? You sat at your desk all day. That shouldn’t wear you out, should it? You’re tired, not because you physically moved around a lot, but because you used your brain a lot. The same is true for dogs.
So if your dog is super hyper or you can’t go on a walk because it’s raining, pull out some treats and start training. Your dog has to think a lot when learning new things, so start thinking of fun tricks you always wanted to try. Happy training!
