A daily walk mitigates boredom for your dog by enabling them to see new sights and experience different smells and changes in the weather. Just like people, dogs can get bored and even depressed if they are kept indoors or in the same place for several hours, and walking serves as a source of stimulation for their minds. Bored dogs could start to engage in destructive behaviors at home, including chewing household items. Walking may reduce these behavioral issues. To reduce boredom as much as possible, veterinarians suggest you consider walking your dog in several different locations. You might want to vary your dog's walking route around the neighborhood, and you could also try walking your dog at a local park or on a trail if possible. For maximum stimulation, it can be beneficial to walk your dog once in the morning and again in the evening.
