Trainer Thought/Tip Thursday: What I wanna talk about today is mental stimulation. And how important it is to your dogs state of mind
Sometimes, we have a busy day, a bad day, the roads are flooded, knee deep in snow. Sometimes our dogs CAN’T get out for a decent walk. IT HAPPENS!
Stop beating yourself up about it!
So what’s the answer?
Well – Mental stimulation
You can create MUCH more fatigue in your dogs through mental stimulation than you can through a walk.
Scent games – Nose work (coming soon)
Trick training (coming soon)
The list is really endless
If you wanna go into more detail in another post- let me know I can do that.
