We believe enrichment to be essential for an animal's mental and physical well-being. The enrichment that we do with all our animals, every day, helps them to feel engaged, happy and relaxed. It also helps them bond with humans and each other. 

Enrichment you can do at home 

Having fun together doesn't have to be expensive. A cheap, interactive toy for your dog is an ‘activity box’. All you need is some dog toys and treats and an old cardboard box. Cut holes in the box and poke some treats and toys through the sides. Encourage your dog to investigate the treats and toys. 

Cat enrichment ideas

Until a cat is settled into a new home, it is essential that they are not let outside and as a general guide, it's best to wait about four weeks before letting cats out.  However, it does depend on the individual cat.

While a cat is confined indoors, you can introduce new toys for them to play with and chase. Cat nip toys can be especially rewarding. A scratch post will hopefully discourage them from choosing your table legs to sharpen their claws, but remember, some cats prefer vertical scratching and some horizontal.  Regular grooming will help cement the bond between the cat and their new owner and although cats are known to generally be more independent than dogs, they thrive on companionship and interactive play. Even adult cats can be persuaded to practice their stalking and pouncing skills on an old shoelace or play hide and seek in a cardboard box.

We owe it to our pets to provide them with opportunities to be happy and healthy and live lifes that meet their needs and not just our own. Be creative!
