Now that Spring is finally here, all the pup lovers will be going outside more often for playtime with your four-legged friends. However, sometimes things can get repetitive, and it can be hard to know how to switch things up.

If this sounds like your situation, keep reading as we share top tips and advice on how to combat this!

  • Try your pup on swimming: In general, most dogs have an instinct to swim (especially if you have breeds such as a Golden Retriever, Cocker Spaniel and Irish Setters!) and it is a great form of new exercise! Just ensure that you’re allowing your dog to swim in a controlled, safe environment

  • Take your dog to a dog park: Dog parks are a brilliant way for exercise and for your pup to meet other dogs. There are generally assault courses and pools of water for your dog to play in and it can provide hours of entertainment!

  • Incorporate new ways to play: In high intelligence breeds, such as the Border Collie, they often require new types of play or else they will become bored. When playing, try presenting new challenges for your dog – such as a Kong or an interactive toy.

  • Explore new locations: If you’re more of a ‘walkies’ playtime pawrent, try taking your dog to a new location. It seems very simple but can be extremely effective. Your dog will have a chance to explore a completely new environment and it can be very exciting for both of you!

  • Try out canine sports: This type of exercise can be particularly good if you have a high energy dog. It is great to switch things up and it is excellent for your dog's mental and physical wellbeing. Check your area to see if there are canine sports available near you!
