Work Out Your Dog As Much As Possible
Whether you have a larger three-bedroom apartment or a studio apartment, your little canine friend will not have many opportunities to exercise comfortably inside. It’s important to take your dog out every day, play in your parking lot or some enclosed area so he has a chance to do some physical activities.
Fill the Toy Basket
Give your puppy a basket full of toys that he can reach at any time, and fill it with all kinds of dog toys like chewing toys. To avoid coming back to an apartment that is in disarray, it is a smarter option to keep your puppy busy.
With a canine roommate, it’s time to make your home as dog-friendly as possible. Keep the furniture as close to the wall as possible and leave open paths to each room. Squeeze your pet’s bed into a tight place so he/she can lie down properly and comfortably.
Keep Food & Water In Peaceful Places
Some dogs hate anxiety while having dinner and may react fearfully. Store your pup’s food in a quiet area of your apartment. Don’t operate your dishwasher or hairdryer while your pup is eating as the sound might cause stress to your pet.
One of the biggest problems with living in apartments is that your neighbors can hear almost everything, especially the large woofs coming out of your dog’s mouth. To avoid disturbing those around you make sure that your dog stays quiet while you are away. Exercise and a lot of toys will help, but consider crate training your dog. If trained properly, your puppy will use it as a safety den while you are away and can stay quiet while lying inside it.
