The Kennel Club has recently released advice on how to keep your dog entertained and stimulated during lockdown, and we thought they would be great tips to share with you.
We are all being told to stay home and although this may be difficult and frustrating for us and our dogs, it is temporary and there are many things that we can all do to help make it easier.
Bored dogs are unable to cope with a lack of stimulation and may show signs of behavioural issues, so it's important that you supplement their normal exercise routine with activities in your home and garden to keep them entertained.
If you or a member of your household show signs of coronavirus, it's important that you stay inside. You should not take your dog for a walk yourself and if you are unable to exercise them in your home or garden, then you can ask someone else to walk them for you, but you should take precautions to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
