K9 Enrichment is a term used to describe activities that provide dogs an outlet for physical and mental stimulation. These activities are designed to help dogs reduce boredom and improve overall health and well-being. Dogs, just like their human partners, crave activity designed to engage and challenge them, especially in a boarding environment. Canine Enrichment has also been shown to help exercise dog’s natural instincts, like herding, in a safe, appropriate, and healthy way. Providing your pup with enrichment during their boarding stay can help them have a sense of control over their environment which may lead to reducing their stress and anxiety in a new place.
As pet owners ourselves, we are always looking for new ways to enhance the boarding experience for our pet guests. The guiding principle behind our canine enrichment program is to provide a safe and healthy atmosphere in which to give dogs added physical and mental stimulation during their stay. Dogs require mental and physical stimulation to thrive, and enrichment helps fulfill that need. Our head trainer has designed a variety of activities to cater towards all types of pet personalities and fitness levels. All dogs are individuals and you may need to experiment to find the type of activity your pet likes best. We recommend trying one of our packages as there are different activities included all in one option!
The benefits of enrichment are many and varied and we encourage you to try out some of our options during your pet’s next stay, but also to continue the fun at home! There are many different DIY enrichment activities you can provide for your pet, which could be as simple as trying a new route for your morning walk, adding a food puzzle to one of your pup’s meals, or training a new trick. At the end of the day, we all love our pets like they are part of our family. While enrichment helps them in many ways, it also has the ability to strengthen the bond between us.
Our Canine Enrichment program was founded and is run by our Head Trainer, Ashley Mosca, CPDT-KA, CPACM. Read more about Ashley HERE!
