5 Tips for Keeping a Dog in an Apartment

Are you worried about living in an
apartment with a dog? Don’t be! People all over the world live
comfortably in an apartment with their four-legged friends. Here are our top 5 tips for keeping a dog in an apartment. If you have a balcony or a terrace, why not install a pet door? This will allow your pet access to fresh air and sunshine. If you’re in a rental
or you can’t make any permanent changes, try a non-permanent door insert instead. Take your pup on regular walks daily, even twice daily if you can. Regular walks will keep your dog healthy and fit and help release all their pent-up
energy. They’ll also be less hyperactive at night which means a good night’s
sleep for everyone. Dog parks are the perfect outlet for
apartment pups. Not only does playtime release energy but meeting new dogs helps socialize your pup. Make sure to supervise every
interaction and remove them from any situation they find overwhelming. Apartment life can be boring, so make sure you have
plenty of toys and occupier treats to keep your dog entertained. Kong toys are
great because they can be filled with treats and used as a tasty puzzle. Long-lasting treats are also great for keeping your pup occupied. In an apartment, bones can make a big smelly mess so we recommend low odour dry treats like the range from Nature’s Cuts. There are plenty of pet toilets to choose from in a variety of designs. Pet toilets allow you to choose a convenient location for your pet to “go” such as in a bathroom or
on your balcony. If you have a puppy, remember that toilet training is a process which takes time and patience. Always use positive reinforcement for
good behavior instead of punishment for any accidental messes. Living in a small apartment means you need to optimize your space and
keep it tidy. To keep food fresh try using containers instead of messy bags. For toys and walking accessories consider baskets, storage cubes, or even
hooks on the wall. If your schedule is a bit hectic and you can’t always make it home on time, consider a water or food dispenser. This way your precious pup never has to go hungry. Food dispensers can be synced to a timer or even controlled with an app on your
phone. Water fountains ensure your dog’s water
is filtered and fresh all day long. Plus, running fresh water can encourage your
dog to drink more and keep well hydrated. Bonus Tip! If you’re worried about what
mischief your pup gets up to when they’re alone in the apartment, why not get a spycam? We recommend the Pet Kit Mate Pro, which allows you to talk to
your pet and swivel the camera to watch all around the room, all controlled by an
app on your phone! Thanks for watching our video! For more helpful tips like
