Having Fun Indoors

Having Fun Indoors

As the summer sun beats down upon us and outdoor spaces become too hot for our furry friends, we have found a variety of ways to keep your pooch occupied when playing indoors.

For our pets, playtime is a significant part of their day – improving their mental and physical health, play time is a fundamental routine in your dog’s daily life.

Unsure of how to keep your pet preoccupied at home? Well, we are here to help. With an extensive range of toys and puzzles to stimulate brain and play functions, here’s why playtime is so important and all the toys we have on offer to keep your pets occupied for hours and hours of fun.

Pawfect Playtime

Throughout their lives, dogs need time to play in order to improve their physical and cognitive development. Understanding what they can and can’t do with a toy helps dogs develop their brains’ functionality. For our four-legged friends, playing with their favourite toy can boost mental stimulation, and with a variety of toys on offer, dogs can release those ancestral urges to pounce, play, hunt and prey on their unsuspecting teddy, ball or tug toy!

In addition to boosting your dog’s brain function, toys can increase the relationship between you and your canine companion, and in turn bring you closer than ever before. Bonding is a significant part of play as engaging with your dog this way can develop a sense of security between you and your dog, and help your dog understand commands such as “fetch”, "wait" and “go”.

Most importantly, toys can provide a source of essential exercise for your dog. Whether it’s chasing a ball, playing tug of war or solving a puzzle, their toys can provide them with hours and hours of activity ensuring their muscular and bone health is maintained through those pawfect playtimes.

Boredom Busters Bundle

Boredom Busters Bundle Box For Large Sized Dogs Dog Treats Natural Cornish Pet

We all know that younger pooches can get into so much mischief (the magic of puppies!). So to stop them from tearing up the house it's a wonderful idea to give your dog something mentally stimulating to do such as KONG stuffed with peanut butter or a long-lasting chew such as an antler. But why stop giving Boredom breakers when they have grown out of puppyhood? Our Boredom Busters Bundle is perfect for juniors and older senior doggies alike!

While many behavioural problems stem from boredom, the answer isn’t necessarily just adding in more physical exercise. When it comes to mental stimulation, it doesn’t take much to tire out your dog; a frozen Kong Classic will tire out some dogs as much as a 30-minute walk. A classic combination of physical & mental exercise is what helps keep our dogs happy and entertained. Our brilliant boredom busting box features a range of incredible toys and treats that will keep your dog’s having fun all day long.
