The Importance Of Play For Both Pet and Parent

“I’m up,” the alarm goes off, you squeeze gently into those yoga pants and off you go. What do I know about being a cyclist? You get to your spin class and immediately go to town on the latest peloton bike, not literally but figuratively. Forty-five minutes later you're home tired, refreshed and ready to take on the world, but why?

"I'm up," the alarm goes off, you hastily put on those gym pants and off you go. What do I know about being a bodybuilder? You get to your gym and of course, you ideally choose the biggest dumbbell you can find because heavy is better.  You survive your forty-five minutes of sometimes irrational thinking and return home gassed, refreshed and ready to move a mountain, but why?

"I'm up," it only takes a glimmer of daylight for you to jump excitedly on the bed ready to go.  So what if the entire household is still asleep, you're up and that's all that matters. You're ready to sink those paws into the ground and roll in the misty dew.  Twenty minutes later you return pooped, refreshed and ready to do it again, but why?

Whether it’s a spinning class, a gym workout or a romp in the yard, exercise or play is vital to both pet and parent. “What all play has in common is that it offers a sense of engagement and pleasure, takes the player out of a sense of time and place, and the experience of doing it is more important than the outcome.” says psychiatrist Stuart Brown, founder of the National Institute for Play in Carmel Valley, Calif.

Played Much Lately?


When's the last time you did something that was so engaging, so much fun, you lost track of time?

Play is not just essential for kids, we’ll leave this as an old wives’ tail; it can be an important source of relaxation and stimulation for adults as well. Playing with your romantic partner, yes woof, friends, co-workers, pets, and children is a sure (and fun) way to fuel your imagination, creativity, problem-solving abilities, and emotional well-being. So as it stands, while we can’t rosé all day as we should, or play all day as we must, a healthy dose of play goes a long way.

How About Your Pet?

Now let’s think about our baby, our furry family member, yes, whether it’s chasing a ball in the yard or using the canine treadmills, exercise or play is vital in helping dogs expend pent-up energy, much more so for some more than others. Without that outlet, they may show behavioral problems that can range from destructive tendencies to attention-seeking antics. Just as surely as a couch potato would benefit from a trot around the block, a dog prone to chewing the couch or digging up a garden will find a much-needed release valve in play and exercise.

Often, such physical activities form an important part of resolving behavioral issues. So let’s ask it, How Often Do You Play With Your Dog? Hey, we get it, today’s pet parents are busier than ever and life happens. So while you work on your schedule, select great designer dog toys and your furry baby will thank you. But with most things take all the caveats seriously, there are myriads of toys to choose from, and simply put just make sure it’s the appropriate everything for your baby.

While we all prefer bonding, and having fun with our pets, they can also enjoy endless fun bundled in a well-chosen favorite toy or toys. So just remember, play isn’t just reserved for your canine companion, you need play as well. Have fun play my fabulous pet parents.
