Thor is an energetic young man who loves attention
I am Thor! I am a 1 year old pit bull mix dog. The most important thing I can tell your readers is that I love attention, so I need a house that can provide a lot for me! I love to take long walks, run in the fields, I am super affectionate (give me animals and scratches and I will show you how happy I am)!
I am very energetic so I would need someone who can keep up with me! Walk with me, run with me, walk with me! I tend to get a little anxious when I’m alone for too long. A loving family with teenagers would be wonderful, but I’d rather be the only pet in the house.
I promise lots of fun, laughs, hugs and adventures. Thanks, Winston.
– Love, Thor
Hi Thor, you are the perfect pet for someone! It’s central New York City, after all, and there is so much to do outdoors in the fall. Readers, stop by and visit this sweet boy and see if he suits you and also read the following information on high energy dogs!
– Regards, Winston
Put those dog brains to work
Because high-energy dogs often have active minds, games and mental stimulation activities are great when you and your dog are at home.
There are many puzzles and puzzle games on the market, but you can also work with items you already have on hand at home. The AKC describes three homemade cognitive games:
Hot and Cold Verbal Communication: Hide a treat, then react excitedly if your dog approaches. Use a calm voice when they walk away.
Treats on a string: Tie a treat to a ribbon. Your dog uses reasoning and investigative skills to learn how to pull this handy treat.
Nesting Treat Bowls: Stack a tower of plastic storage containers with one treat in the bottom container (and one in the top for beginners) to teach your dog to understand each level.
