I am a dog lover! So much that my boyfriend and I have 4 dogs. Kara is a blue-nose Pitbull, Diesel is a red-nose Pitbull and American Bulldog mix, Coco is a Chow/Australian Shepard mix and Casper is a Shiba-Inu. With this kind of a pack, we gotta make sure we keep them busy.
Here are some ideas of different things you can do with your furry friend to keep them engaged and active.
Hide and Seek Squat:
Stand in front of your dog with your feet wider than hip-width apart, toes slightly turned out, and hold his favorite treat up with your right hand (make sure he sees it!).
Push your hips back to squat down and pass the treat under your left leg from your right hand to your left (letting your dog try to find it). Quickly stand back up and hold the treat up with your left hand. That's one rep. Repeat 10 reps total.
Start in modified pushup position, with your dog's treat under your right hand. Slowly lower your body into a pushup, and as you press up, extend your right arm (picking up the toy) and reach the toy up and out towards your dog.
Bring your hand back to the floor and repeat. Do 5 pushups with the right arm raise, and then 5 using your left arm.
