What is Enrichment and Why Does My Dog Need It?
As pet owners we want to give our dogs the best! After all, they are members of the family right? The same way members of your family have different outlets for their creative or mental energies (music and art for me, gardening for my mom and anything using his hands for my dad), your dog needs these same outlets for their mental and creative energies!
Over years of evolution, our dogs developed very important behaviors that would keep them fed, alive and social. However, by domesticating our dogs, we are now asking them to stop being the animals they have evolved to be. All of that survival energy is still present in Rover! Unfortunately, without the proper outlets, this energy often turns into "problem" or "nuisance" behaviors.
The good news is, as pet owners, we can learn to recognize Rover's needs, and provide him with positive outlets for his natural behaviors. By taking small steps to add enriching experiences to Rover's day we can reduce the occurrences of "problem" or "nuisance" behaviors. When opening up opportunities for our dogs to experience joy you just might find you open yourself up to experience more joy as well! I know that when I see my dog rolling around on my wet towel like it is his favorite thing in the world, I can't help but smile!
