Tiring Out High Energy Dogs: What’s the Best Way? | Ep: #129

Tiring Out High Energy Dogs

Tiring out high energy dogs is a question we receive on a regular basis. Everyone thinks the best way to tire out their dog is by exercising them physically. Many will run the dog with a wheeler or vehicle. Unfortunately, running the dog mindlessly just to get exercise conditions dogs to be very athletic, making it that much harder to tire them out the next time. What we need to do is combine physical exercise with mental exercise. Making the dog think and focus is just as exhausting, if not more, than mindless exercise.

We hope you enjoy this episode of the DogBone Pawdcast as we talk about tiring out high energy dogs!
