A great way to show your pets that you love them is by enriching their lives. Providing pets with enrichment activities and items is important to their quality of life and can help prevent problem behaviors, such as excessive chewing.
Companion animals are intelligent and need mental as well as physical stimulation to stay happy and fit. Proper exercise and learning tricks helps them to use their energy in positive ways. Additionally, safe toys, such as the food dispensing kind, keep them interested and busy. And of course, reward-based training brings out the best in your pets and strengthens your bond with them.
You can find tips on training, how to make and use toys, and much more on our Animal Behavior Handouts.
Check out our Amazon Wish List to donate enrichment items for the animals in our care at Capital Humane Society. Your support is always appreciated.
