Using Games to Exercise Your Dog
Dogs are meant to be social and active. Our modern lives have adjusted the type of exercise dogs used to do, like working on a farm or hunting, with neighborhood walks or a game of fetch. Instead of sticking to the same routine, mix up the activities you do for your dog so they stay excited and engaged. At Dogtopia daycare, we incorporate games throughout the day to not only give a change of pace to the physical exercise, but test their brain as well:
Dogs love our agility games! Agility games involve running up and over the play structures in playrooms or even through a tunnel. When a dog gets to the top of a structure or to the end of the tunnel, they are frequently rewarded with pets and praise. In addition to helping their bones and muscles, this helps build their confidence!
Bubbles are a favorite for Dogtopia dogs and sometimes, they’re bacon flavored! Who doesn’t love bacon? Canine Coaches will blow bacon bubbles and dogs will jump for joy to catch a taste of these floating objects.
Follow the Leader
Just as it sounds, our dogs enjoy the game, Follow the Leader. This game challenges their listening skills and helps to build a bond with the Canine Coach leading the activity. Dogs are praised for doing an excellent job!
Happy, Healthy Dogs
Our playroom games were created by a specialist with the safety and wellbeing in mind to ensure healthy, safe, and fun play for all of our dogs. Dogs are grouped by their size and personality so they find their BFFF (Best Furry Friend Forever) and enjoy some much-desired exercise and playtime. The average Dogtopia dog walks an average of 30,000 steps per day which is three times the suggested number of steps for a human. Instead of having your dog snooze the day awhile, treat them to regular exercise and socialization at Dogtopia!
