One of the important things a responsible parent has to bear in mind is that our pups need mental stimulation! This need normally is best fulfilled by playing with your pups and bringing them out and about, or via training sessions.
It is incredibly important to keep your pups mentally occupied and satisfied – especially those of smarter breeds – lest they put that noggin of theirs to mischief!
There is also another option you can try – treat toys! There are now many toys out there that can be stuffed full of treats and then given to your pups. Your pups will then smell the treats and try to get them out, and be rewarded when successful! It is a great way to keep your pups occupied for hours.
This Dad has opted for this method for his English Bulldog pups, Lola and Jake. It is clear this is something he is familiar with – just look at all those treat toys he has!
