Why Your Dog Needs Enrichment

Half of dogs over age of 10 report signs of cognitive dysfunction

Clinical signs of cognitive dysfunction include disorientation, sleep-wake cycle disturbances, house soiling, aimless wandering and increased anxiety.

Enrichment may stave off cognitive decline

And even improve cognition in those already starting to slope downward.

Enrichment is more effective than antioxidant supplements

In one study, older dogs receiving environmental enrichment alone improved more than group given the dietary treatment without enrichment.

The earlier the better

Evidence suggests that enrichment may make the most impact if started in median-aged animals.

Testimonials

I am so thankful for BrainyPup! I no longer have to spend hours researching and DIY-ing mental play activities, they just arrive at my doorstep every month... Like magic!

Anna (Luna's pawrent)

I always feel so bad coming home after work to my dog who has just been staring at the wall for 8 hours. Now, every week I reward her with a new puzzle after work!

Kelly (Klover's pawrent)

I used to keep a huge box of Lion's long forgotten toys, that he played with a few times and then never again. With BrainyPup, I was able to take that space back and Lion has never been more excited with his toy box that arrives every month!

Edwin (Lion's pawrent)
