Whether you like New Year's resolutions or not, it is always a good plan to do new and fun things with your four-legged friend. In this blog we write about fun and creative activities you can do with your dog this year. Dogs are very intelligent, so it is extremely important for their well-being and health to put them to work. Because the activities below involve play with your dog, they are also extremely good for the bond with your four-legged friend!
A similar feeling that (most) owners have with (most) four-legged friends: Love for the beach! Get a breath of fresh air, stare at the waves... But above all: one big playground for dogs! Dogs are allowed to run free on most Dutch and Belgian beaches in the winter. Bring a ball or frisbee and enjoy time together! It is good for the mutual bond, but also for the movement. Make sure you have enough water and a towel for afterwards. Have fun!
Dogs not only love plenty of exercise, they also love brain teasers! Let your dog's brain work well with brain training. Make them think and they will really be challenged. Buy one of the many IQ Training Games or create great challenges for your dog yourself!
Walking the dog
In addition to the beach activities and brain training, you can also actively walk your dog. Train your dog to focus on you and be active. The pounds will fly off for both of you - and the fitness will come naturally! For example, special running leashes have been invented so that you can enjoy your time with your four-legged friend 100% hands-free!
In addition to being wonderfully relaxing for people, a massage for dogs is also stress-relieving! Curl up together on the couch or under the covers on the bed and give each other a good hug.
