Dogs need both physical and mental stimulation every day and play time is important. Take your dog for a long walk so that you both get some exercise and quality time together. Most vets recommend walking a healthy adult dog for 45 minutes each day to keep it fit and happy.
Playtime is important, too. Active breeds like the Border collie or Jack Russell terriers can cause damage to your flower beds and wood fencing if left outside alone and they get bored. Some dogs like to chase a ball, others like to play tug of war, and some just like to run and jump. Find what toys your dog prefers and give him at least 10 minutes of your undivided attention each day – you will both feel better afterward!
