How You Can Help
If you talk to your vet and the issue isn't medical, you can look to some lifestyle tweaks to provide your pup some more joy throughout day. "Get outside and change up your routine — go on a walk in a new neighbourhood or trail, let your dog sniff and explore," Askeland says. You can also try some puzzles and games. "Teach your pup fun tricks or consider attending a group dog-training class with a certified trainer," she says. "Look for tricks, agility, nose work, or other fun and engageing activities." See what works for your dog, and go from there!
