What is Enrichment and its benefits?
We often hear the word enrichment when it comes to keeping our pets happy, but what really is it?
Enrichment is the action of improving the quality of our pet’s lives whether it be physically, emotionally or behaviourally. It provides healthy outlets for their behaviour and reduces unwanted behaviours. Through education on how to implement enrichment effectively, the health of your pets and the relationships we hold with them will improve.
We have put together a list of some easy ways you can introduce enrichment activities into your pet’s everyday life (puppies, dogs, cats, rabbits & more). Not only can most of these items be easily found in the house, they are also plastic free #plasticfreejuly
Top 6 plastic-free enrichment activity ideas
1. Rolled-up towel
Start by laying out a towel and sprinkling some goodies on top - you can use treats, dry biscuits or any dry food items. Roll the towel up and let your dog find the treats inside.
2. Muffin Tin
A muffin tin is a great tool to use as a puzzle for your pets. First, place treats in the muffin tin and then tennis balls or scrunched-up paper on top of the treats. Your pets will have to use their nose and paws to find what’s inside.
