Exercise and Play
Dogs are friendly, loyal, protective and playful. They become an integral part of most households that welcome them with care and love.
Going for walks is a great way to spend time with your dog. She will enjoy both the exercise and also spending time with you. Dogs enjoy a routine, so try to go for walks on a regular basis.
At playtime you can use any number of commercial or homemade 'toys' to entertain and interact with your dog. Playing fetch is a classic game, and you can use a ball, stick, Frisbee, rope or sock. You can also occupy your dog for long periods with rawhide treats, squeaky toys or chew toys that have a place to hide a treat.
