3. Teach Them A Trick
Tricks are great boredom-busters, because they take a lot of mental engagement from both you and your bet. Search YouTube for trick inspiration, and have treats on hand for when your pet does well.
4. Go For a Walk or Play
This one is a given, and you should be doing it daily, but if you have a dog, this is your reminder to take them for a walk.
