Corgis are very active. They like to run around, play, and follow you around all day.
So, if you live in a small apartment or can’t leave home due to lockdowns or any other reason, then you should line up some home activities that you can enjoy together.
Even you as a human need to exercise and keep active and this goes for your pet as well. So, take this as inspiration to not only keep your pet active but yourself as well.
Train Your Dog with Scents
Dogs have a very sensitive sense of smell. You can even train your corgi to identify different smells and fragrances.
This is known as scent work and it’s a fun and productive way to pass the time and keep both of you entertained.
You can start out by training your dog to smell different types of treats and then progress onto essential oils. Pretty soon, they’ll be able to identify all types of different smells.
Use a Kong
Kong is a popular toy with most dog owners and you probably have one in your house.
But, you can give it a new spin by stuffing it with something delicious like doggie biscuits or peanut butter. Greek yogurt and canned pumpkin are great, easy, and tasty yet healthy fillers too.
This will require your pet to use some brain power while burning energy. Make them earn their meal while having fun.
Swim Indoors with Your Pet
Corgi adoption means staying active. Corgis love swimming and if you’re lucky enough to have a swimming spot for dogs in your neighborhood then make time to take your pet out for a swim every now and then.
Most doggie daycares also come with indoor pools to keep your puppy busy and active. This is a great way for corgis to socialize with other dogs while burning energy.
By the time they get back home, they’ll be ready for bed from all the dock diving and retrieving on the water that they’ve been doing.
Play Hide and Seek
One of the easiest games that you can play with your pet is hide and seek.
Not only is this a fun exercise for both of you, but it’s a fantastic way to practice commands with your pet such as “sit” and “stay.
The best part is that you don’t need any special equipment and you can even get the kids involved.
Use Old Shirts as Toys
You can turn your old t-shirt into any number of dog toys. You can cut it up and tie it into knots or strip it apart as a thing for your dog to chase.
If your dog doesn’t respond well to this new chewing toy then you can always weave a few treats into it and use it as your very own DIY sniffing treat.
This can keep your pet entertained for hours as they try to uncover and eat the treats hidden inside.
As you can see, there are many easy ways to keep your corgi entertained indoors.
Just because you don’t have a big yard or can’t leave your house right now, doesn’t mean that you have to stay bored. Try out these activities and enjoy hours of fun with your pet.
