How to play apple bobbing with your dog
Get the kids involved and play a good old fashioned game of apple bobbing with your four-legged friend.
Tip! If you don’t have any floating toys, you could always try using some kibble.
Enrichment is described as giving animals’ mental stimulation that allows them to perform natural behaviours, permits them to be more active and increases the control over their environment. Enrichment helps satisfy both the physical and psychological needs of animals and allows them to make choices and encourages them to use their brain to solve puzzles and problems. This can increase their overall happiness and satisfaction, whilst reducing boredom, anxiety and physical and psychological energy.
