In recent years, the traditional ideas of what dogs and humans can do together for fun and for physical conditioning have been challenged by the development of different doggie games. When it comes to our canine companions, it’s important to remember that dogs get bored of the same routine just as much as humans do. By making sure that your dog is constantly being exposed to new things, your dog will be challenged mentally as well as physically. It is a fact that bored dogs develop destructive behaviours. Typically, bored dogs build up a lot of negative energy, taking their frustration out on furniture etc.

If you find that you and your four legged friend are getting a little bored with the same activities, there are lots of different dog sports that can get you and your pup moving. From dog diving to flyball, canicross to surfing, there are now lots of different ways you can keep your dog happy and fit. Let’s check out the infographic below from Greyhounds As Pets that reveals some creative ways to exercise your dog that will keep everyone entertained. Welcome to Creative Canine Fitness!
