Exercise & Play
Every dog needs a combination of both physical and mental stimulation and a combination of exercise and play is the best way to achieve this. Depending on their age, breed and overall health, the different levels of activities, but without it, your dog will become bored and may develop behavioural problems. Lack of exercise can also lead to weight and health problems.
For all dogs, even a large familiar garden can become boring after a while, while interaction with you, and other dogs, is also important - so taking your dog out and about for walks and runs is recommended.
Interactive games and toys are fun ways to get your dog exercising, and at Petmania we have a wide selection available to suit all dog breeds and activity levels.
Older or convalescing dogs will have different exercise requirements to healthy adult dogs or puppies, so consultation with your vet, will help you to determine the best exercise and play routine for them. For healthy adults and younger dogs however, our pet care advisors can help you find the most suitable exercise regime to suit both your dog, and your own lifestyle.
