3 – Train obedience
Teaching basic obedience will improve the lives of you and your dog. You can teach it yourself, hire a private trainer, or take group lessons. No matter what you choose, your dog will like to learn the rules and limits that make him a good house dog and a good neighbor and he will burn a lot of mental energy while thinking. Trained dogs are happy dogs because they know how to keep their owners happy as well as themselves.
4 – Learn new tricks
Even if your dog is not the next obedience or agility champion, he certainly has plenty of room to learn new things. Teaching your dog a new tip is a great way for you to spend time together, and you will provide your dog with lots of mental stimulation and delicious treats. And remember, old dogs can learn new tricks, so don’t be afraid to try something new with your elders!
