How to Keep Your Dog Active When Living in an Apartment, Manhattan, New York

For pet owners in New York City, ensuring your puppy gets enough exercise can be challenging. Apartment living can make dogs unhealthy and cranky unless you take deliberate steps to help them relieve their energy. Fortunately, there are many options that you and your doggy day care can carry out to get your pet up and moving.

Indoor Exercise

Give your furry friend plenty of time to play and exercise at home. Arrange your furniture to maximize the floor space, engage in tug-of-war, and other stress-relieving games. To keep your dog interested in their toys, rotate them out regularly.

Regular Walks

Doggy Day CareAt a minimum, you should take your dog out for a long walk at least twice per day. Try to vary your routes to provide mental and physical stimulation. Ideally, you should also provide your pup with more intense exercises, including hikes, playing fetch, and letting your dog run beside you as you bike or jog.

Doggy Day Care

Ultimately, the amount of exercise a large dog needs may not fit into your busy schedule. If this is the case, help is available! Your local doggy day care can help your dog receive their daily exercise, as well as provide plenty of opportunities to play and socialize instead of staying home alone all day. For many pet owners, this is the perfect solution to their struggles with a lonely, restless, or even destructive dog.
