Get your lazy dog a little more active

lazy dogs

Some dogs are just content to sleep all day, hang out and chill. But even the laziest of dogs needs a little action in their lives. And sometimes you just have to be the tough love parent and get them moving!

Try these 5 simple tips to get them going:

  1. Be social and fun, try taking your lazy pooch to a dog run, or a dog park. Being around other dogs may wake them up and at the least get some playful time in
  2. Dust off those old cobwebs and get some mental stimulation by teaching your dog a new trick
  3. Get fit! Try and incorporate more exercise on walks such as sprints or running up and down some stairs
  4. If the only thing they will get up for is food, make them work for it. Hide treats around the house and turn it into a game of “hide and seek”
  5. Try and understand the reasons they may be lazy. Could it be health or diet related? Worth having a conversation with your vet about this!

What do you do to motivate your lazy pets?
