How To Make A Lazy Dog Playful?

Like humans, dogs come in all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels. If your dear friend is not a big fan of going out, don’t panic! Take a look at this list – there may be a solution that will motivate Fido to get up and get up on the sofa.  

Always Use Different Toys

Different dogs prefer different toys. If your dog is not happy with your choice of toys, they will not be tempted to get up and try them out. Collect an array of fun toys for your dogs to choose from, such as balls, frets, ropes, soft toys, sharp toys, and stuffed animals.  

 

Chances are, your dog will find something you like!  

  • 1. Your dog’s toy preferences may change with age. If your dog likes a toy but is not very interested in it, they may get bored. 

 

 

Exercise With Your Dog

Slow dogs sometimes burst with energy. If you notice that your dog is tired after about 15 minutes, use this time to run, recover, or walk. There is nothing better than a bit of exercise!  

1. Tiny dogs often prefer to do small amounts of exercise between small naps.                                2. If your dog is older, they may have a limited health condition to the time they can be active. If so, talk to your doctor about the best way to exercise your dog. 

Set A Routine

If your dog might be interested in exercising, if they know, it’s coming. Try to set your spell or spend time at the same time every day. Within a few weeks (or even a few days), your dog will be able to get to know the routine and expect an exercise session with you.

1. You can choose the time that works best for you and your dog. If your puppy likes to sleep, consider taking them for a first walk in the afternoon instead of early in the morning. If they go to bed early, try wrapping up the playtime by evening.

Play When Your Dog Wants To Play 

Even lazy dogs want to play all the time. If your dog comes to you with a ball or a stick, come and get it! If they bring you a toy, play a game of war! Take advantage of any time your dog shows interest in exercising, especially if it doesn’t happen often. 

Short Walk 

Dogs need 10-15 minutes out time at a time. Give them plenty of time to find and give them lots of compliments, so that they start to see walking as a pleasant experience. If you think your dog can handle it, feel free to take them outside for a long, 30-minute walk around the neighborhood instead. 

1. If your dog starts to enjoy short walks, you can increase the length of your walk over time. 

Jogging 

 

Verbal cues are a great way to get things moving with your dog. Take a walk to your booth for a few minutes so you can both warm up. Next, use a special gesture, such as “let go” or “go,” to let your dog know it’s time to speed up.  

 

Monitor your dog as soon as you start running – if they are having trouble maintaining speed, stop walking and move back to the walk. 

1. When you get to the run out, give your dog plenty of breaks so he can breathe and go to the bathroom. 

Tug of War 

Grab a strong rope or soft toy that you and your dog can hold. Once you grab a toy, say “let’s tug” to play. This game can encourage your dog to burn some extra energy while pulling the toy. Then, say “give” or “out” so your dog knows the game is over. 

 

Game of Fetch 

Recovering a ball burns more energy than you expect. Grab a ball or other toy and toss it somewhere; encourage your dog to go ahead and bring it back. If your dog grabs a toy and runs away, teach them to bring it so you can play together. If you want to shake things, throw the ball up. If your dog enjoys swimming, throw him in a body of water instead.

Hide & Seek

Hide your dog somewhere and invite him in. Once your dog is distracted by something, get a chance to hide. Once you’re away, call your pets and invite them to look for them. Once you find your pool, shower them with compliments! It may not be a traditional exercise, but hide and seek will still make your dog stand up.

Arrange Playdates 

Other dogs can inspire your pet to be a little more active. Schedule a visit with one of the dogs in the neighborhood, or enter your dog daycare. Walking around with other dogs can encourage your dog to play and exercise. Dog parks are another great way to make new friends for your dog while burning some energy. 

Hiking 

Hiking is a great way to find your way out. In addition to being a great source of exercise, hiking also introduces your pet to many new places and scents. To stay safe, always keep your dog hanging when you are on the trail, and choose it after your pet if they go to the bathroom during the trek. 

Swimming 

Swimming is a fun way to change your dog’s exercise routine. It’s also a great option for pets with common issues, as swimming increases mobility a bit. To stay safe, tie a life jacket on your dear friend so that he can swim and walk. If your dog has never been to a swim, take some time to get your pet used to watering first. 

New Tricks 

 Obedience training is an underrated form of exercise. Some tricks, such as walking in a circle or knocking between poles, involve a lot of movement and can be a great exercise for your dog. Have some time each day to work with you. After all, who says an old dog can’t learn new tricks? 

If your dog learns enough tricks, you can put them to the test of obedience! 

Dog Sports 

Lure courses, agility trials, and other sports are a lot of fun. Once your dog starts exercising regularly, introduce him to a variety of sports. Water-loving dogs can enjoy dock diving, while furry dogs can love flying hair. 

If your dog becomes quite skilled in some sports, you can enter them in the official competition!
