Thinking about adopting a dog? One of the first thoughts that may cross your mind is the living space. They come in different sizes and shapes, but never less dog-friendly. If you live in an apartment and want to adopt a pup, here’s what you should have in mind:
Mental stimulation is just as necessary for dogs as it is for humans. We give our kids games to pick their brains all the time, like puzzle and chess. You need to constantly awaken new passions and interests for you dog to keep them intellectually engaged and therefore, in a healthy mental state.
Dogs are fun, active creatures that love to go on adventures, jump into the wilderness and discover the world around them. Despite their intelligence and ability to survive, we shouldn’t just assume that they are capable of getting through any situation all by themselves without keeping an eye on them at all times. Dogs adjust and learn quickly, but they are not born all-knowing. Although dogs are famous for being good swimmers, one cannot just throw a pup in the pool and expect it to take it easily. You have to teach them to step by step how to awaken their abilities and get used to new circumstances.
When you welcome a Husky into your family, they become your responsibility. They look up to you for safety, and shelter and trust you to take care of their well-being. Just the way kids need mental exercise with puzzle, lego, and memory, dog’s’ mentality needs training to develop.
