It is not out of place to say that a majority of dogs have no shortage of energy. We see them all fired up for the day, jumping into our bed to wake us up and try to goad us to play with them.
While their enthusiasm which seems to increase every other day is adorable, we know that it is quite exhausting for us to keep up, especially when we’ve got work to do.
Studies have shown that 28% of pet owners leave their dogs at home unattended between 10 to 20 hours every week.
If you’re observant enough, there’s that look your furry pet wears on its face when you attempt to leave the house without them. A look that says “Are you going to leave me in this house by myself?”
While it is sad to watch them like that, you are faced with the inevitability that you can’t be with them at all times.
Fortunately, your dog does not always have to wear that look. There are toys out there that have been made for your hyperactive dogs. Toys that they can play with, whether you’re there or not.
These toys will help stimulate them physically and mentally. If you’re a pet owner, you should consider the following toys we’ll be briefly discussing. In the meantime, you can check out Pet Assure for care tips for your pets.
