Boredom and variety are always inter connected in case of dog misbehaving
Yes. This is true.
Many times, boredom can be managed with variety of materials that will distract the animals to a greater extent. Hence, the dog may not do the abnormal or unwanted activity arising out of the boredom experienced by it.
Boredom experienced dogs may have different types of behavioral patterns. For example, some dogs will be barking continuously and some may be engaged in some digging activities.
Toys are the answer…
Those toys may be kept inside the crate and in particular puppies love them. A treat ball or cong with multiple treats inside may be placed in the dog’s shelter and pup will soon understand how to roll the toy to get the treats. Toys like treat ball or cong are ingenious way to simulate and activate dog during play and free time. Instead of placing the food monotonously in one place, we can change places where we put toys as a way to play hide and seek with our pets.
Such actions will be helpful with removing the boredom from your dog life. This will help the dog owners to drive away unwanted behavioral patterns of their pets.
For example, some dogs may have destructive biting habits and will bite chairs, clothes, mats and everything that it can see and reach. After ruling out the teething problem if it is a puppy, providing your dog with some large sized balls, mineral mixture based bone materials, etc. for sure will help to reduce the boredom related activities.
