Providing dogs with social interaction, as well as physical and mental stimulation are critical factors for maintaining their behavioral health. Enrichment programs can help relieve shelter dog boredom and stress, which can make a major difference in a shelter dog’s daily life. The best types of enrichment, for most dogs, involve interaction with people or other dogs.
