Enrichment For Dogs: An Introduction


 

What is Enrichment For Dogs?

What is enrichment, and why is it so important? Many owners don’t know that incorporating enrichment into their dog’s daily routine can be life-changing for both them and their pup! Every dog needs and deserves enrichment - here’s why.


Enrichment for dogs is comparable to hobbies for humans. Think of some of your hobbies - crocheting, skiing, reading, hiking, cooking, etc. Now think about why you have those hobbies. There are probably many reasons: for fun, to relieve stress, to work your body or challenge your mind, etc. A life without hobbies would quickly lead to boredom, frustration, and depression - our free time would just be spent sleeping or staring into space!
