5 Ways to Keep Your Dog Entertained While Living in an Apartment


Having a dog love you can be one of the greatest blessings that life can offer. A huge perk for many apartment renters is being able to enjoy the company of their dogs in a pet-friendly community.  However, one of the disadvantages of apartment living is the lack of yard space for your precious pooch to get out and let their legs loose.


Here are some great ways to help make sure your dog leads a fully fulfilled life, even when living in an apartment without a yard:


1. Frequent Outdoor Walks

Get your furry friend outside of your apartment for a bit to enjoy the fresh air and a nice stroll! Also, they will get to burn off some excess energy that’s hard to get out just from the confines of your apartment space!


2. New Training or Reinforcement of Old Training

That’s right, training is one of the best ways to establish a trusted bond with your pet. Sit, stay, shake, down, roll over – these are just a few of the commands you can teach your dog and he or she will be eager to please you – in return for a nice treat, of course! Help them use their brains to burn some energy! You can even come up with some new games or tricks all on your own! Anything would work that helps you and your pup have a good time and strengthen your bond!


3. Interactive Toys

There are plenty of interactive toys on the market that will keep your dog entertained for hours. Some popular ones include the KONG and the Bob-A-Lot toy. Once you see how excited your pup is, you’ll want to buy them all!


4. Random Adventures

Sometimes you just need to pack up and go somewhere new! Take the opportunity to explore a new place with your dog. Whether it be to a new area of town or on a new trail, your dog will surely love getting to sniff around an unfamiliar place!


5. Give Some Love!

This last one is probably the easiest to do, but remember to give your dog lots of rubs, kisses, and treats. After all, they deserve it, right?


This is only a small list of things you can do to help keep your dog entertained while living in an apartment. But remember, all your dog cares about is getting to spend this time with you!
