Enrichment for Dogs

What is enrichment?

Enrichment is providing opportunities for our dogs to engage in species-specific typical behaviors with the goal of improving a dog’s well being. While physical activity like playing and chasing can be considered enriching for many dogs, there are many other species typical behaviors which dogs find enjoyable, stress reducing, and satisfying. These include licking, chewing, sniffing, and shredding.

Used well, enrichment can increase quality of life as well as build emotional resilience in our dogs.
