Make Sure Your Dog is Stimulated
Pet activity trackers like Poof show a difference between walks and playtime, so you can see if your pet is getting enough stimulation to keep their mind in shape, too.
Brett Reynolds, a certified professional dog trainer at The Dog Stop, believes that activity trackers may also help you get to the bottom of destructive behavior.
“If someone has an issue with their dog being destructive at home, it could be a sign that the dog isn’t getting enough stimulating interaction,” he says. “With a tracking app you could see that between 3 and 6 p.m., your dog gets no activity at all and when you’re home in the evening they act out. Based on that, I would recommend taking your dog out for a walk or play time as soon as you get home.”
