Your pet depends upon you to take care of their exercise needs. When you are on a trip, getting your usual walks in may be a bit of a challenge. That is why you should always pack some extra toys with you.
Plan to spend some time each day playing with your dog. A game of fetch, tug of war, or hide and seek will help burn off excess energy. Dogs also need mental stimulation, especially smart dogs. Treat dispensing toys are a great way to challenge a dog that is food motivated, and you can get several, each with a different level of difficulty.
If you are heading to the lake, don’t forget water toys for your water loving pet. Chase in the water has a whole new appeal and keeps your dog cooler, even in hot weather.
