I’ve found that Trigger is a much happier dog when stimulated regularly. He goes to doggie day care twice a week to play with other dogs and we go to the trail once or twice a week with a friends lab. This seems to quench his need for other K9 play and he’s very well balanced at home. It was a challenge when daycare was closed during the shelter in place and he was noticeably naughty.
Trigger needs frequent stimulation and goes to doggie day care 2 - 3 days a week. He comes homes completely exhausted from playing all day and acts like a normal dog for a day or so after. During the shelter in place we have hit the trail for 3-4 mile hikes once or twice a week. For us, it’s finding the right amount of stimulation.
