How to Energize a Lazy Dog: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 115
Dogs are naturally social and playful creatures. But then there are those who are sluggish and have made a career of napping all day. If you have a lazy dog that loves being a couch potato then its time to get outdoors. Dogs need daily exercise to stay fit and release pent up energy. There are few ways you can energize your lazy dog.
1. Make sure your dogs laziness is not related to sickness. Anemia, induced by a range of factors from fleas to a lack of iron in the diet, as well as gastrointestinal infection, general sickness and nutrition deficiency, can result in a dog becoming lazy. If your dog is usually peppy or playful and it suddenly becomes lethargic and lazy, take it to the vet for an exam.
2. Get your dog excited. Bringing out a favorite toy, dangling a treat in front of their snout or using an excited voice will often get your dog excited to play. Dogs tend to mimic, so if you are excited then your dog will be as well.
3. Escort your dog to designated play area. Taking your dog in the backyard or to a local dog park will get any dog wagging with joy. Often time organizing a doggy play date can help unleash their inner playful side.
4. Play a game with your dog. Jogging with your dog, a game a fetch, agility obstacle courses or running around to burn off excess energy will help. Playing a game with your dog not only engages them but helps build camaraderie and communication between the two of you.
With a long fun filled day of play under your belt you and your dog are deserving of a cat nap!
