Let's Have Fun! Learn about the importance of being active with your pet.

Being Healthy Is Fun

Exercise and activity are essential to your pet's health and well-being. It also provides the perfect opportunity to strengthen the bond between you and your pet. At Pet Supplies Plus, we promote and encourage this special relationship by offering a variety of products perfect for pet and pet parent interaction.

Here are just some of the many benefits of pet and pet parent exercise:

  • Establishes a solid dynamic while earning your pet's trust, obedience and love
  • Reduces pet behavior problems, such as destructive chewing, rough play and obsessive licking
  • Remedies pet boredom and depression with physical and psychological stimulation
  • Increases levels of happiness and self-esteem for both pet and pet parent
  • Decreases digestive problems and obesity
  • Allows the pet parent to devote time to personal exercise during pet activity

If your pet is able to engage in outdoor activity, wide-open spaces like dog parks, public parks, trails and empty parking lots can act as the perfect playground. At your neighborhood Pet Supplies Plus store, we offer a wide selection of collars, harnesses and leads for all pet sizes, ensuring outdoor activities are safe and fun.

Despite changing weather conditions, it is still important to continue outdoor pet activities, especially if your pet is familiar with frequent outdoor exercise. Pet Supplies Plus offers numerous apparel options to help your pet fashionably enjoy any type of weather, like paw protectors, sweaters, rain gear and even holiday clothing.

And, of course we wouldn't forget to mention toys. Occasionally spoiling your pet with a new toy is a great way of promoting pet and pet parent activity. Toys are both physically and psychologically stimulating for your pet, allowing it to safely explore its instinctual behaviors. When selecting the perfect toy, it's important to consider your pet's age, size and activity level. Introducing a new toy to your pet can provide hours of fun and exercise. Remember, it's very important to monitor the condition of your pet's toys and replace them when worn-out to prevent choking and other hazards.
