Play with and exercise your puppy‌

  • Updated

A tired puppy is more likely to sleep soundly. If your pup is old enough to be walked and has been vaccinated, a pre-bed walk can help to tire them out.

Otherwise, a vigorous play session will help. Try throwing a ball or other toy for your puppy to fetch, either in the house or yard or engaging in a long game of tug.

Mental stimulation will also help tire your puppy out, especially if it’s a working breed or other high-energy breed. Puzzle toys are great for mental stimulation, but even basic trick or obedience training sessions will get that puppy brain working.
