4 Boredom Buster Ideas for Your Dog While Working From Home

Looking for ideas to help pass the time inside with your pup? Just like anyone, a dog can get very bored laying around all day and needs the exercise to stay happy and healthy. We put together some great toys we carry here at DOGPerfect to keep your dog entertained! Not only will they enjoy the exercise, but they will cherish the playtime with you!


KONG toys are great for toss, fetch, and chewing even without treats inside! Stuffing a KONG is easy, you can stuff anything that is safe for your dog to eat (in healthy amounts) into their KONG. Some of the favorites we recommend are Charlee Bear Treats (they fit perfectly inside a KONG), Pawnut Butter (we carry Green Coast Pet All-Natural Pawnut Butter that is safe for your dog and doesn’t contain Xylitol), or frozen beef broth! If you choose to freeze the ingredients inside, make sure you plug one end of the KONG so the ingredients don't fall out while it freezes.
