Got a pet dog? Turns out you're both doing so much good for each other's health and state of mind, you wouldn't have even realised it. They encourage you to get up, get out, exercise and be social and you show them unconditional love and attention (despite the mess they might sometimes leave in their wake!), which is all they really want in life.
One of the best ways you can keep your pet pup is to keep them occupied and there's no way dogs love doing that more than with their mouth - chewing stuff! Encourage them to steer-clear of gnawing on your favourite sofa lounge or Italian leather heels by going with three handy ideas to keep their minds occupied.
If you've got a puppy or a dog with a lot of energy, it might seem like playtime is all the time and it can get quite exhausting quite quickly if you're always on your feet, trying to run them ragged. Thinking about investing in an indestructible toy or two to keep them occupied so you can treat yourself to a nice cuppa something yummy while they tire themselves out. Everybody wins!
Imagine having four legs - no wonder they want to run so much! One of the best ways you can keep that canine bud of yours content is with a daily or twice daily walk or run. Nothing makes them happier as they bolt around a green park, interacting with other pups and chasing balls. But remember, safety is key and they should be kept on their leash when they're not going mad around the oval.
3. Chew time
By nature, dogs are pack animals, bred to hunt to survive and utilise that big mouth, loaded with teeth. Though in Australia dogs are entirely domestic and mostly really well-behaved, they still have that tendency to chew, chew, chew everything that comes their way they're convinced is a toy. And who can blame them? Satisfy their inner urge to maul by using cleverly designed chew toys and objects made to handle the pressure.
