Guest of the Week: Beth and Wayne with Canine Companion Consulting

Everyone knows that dogs need some exercise to be happy and healthy, but what about mental stimulation? Turns out dogs need to be mentally stimulated just as much as they need physical exercise. Beth and Wayne showed us some great tricks to entertain your dog inside using their own food and toys, without too much hassle! Watch the video to see their great ideas and then have some fun with your dog, especially during the cold winter months!
