Puppy play boxes are all the rage nowadays. These boxes are excellent stimulators for puppies in the early stages of their lives.
Puppies start learning from birth. Good breeders begin handling and socialization training right away. In fact, some training can begin as soon as the puppy can open its eyes and walk!
Studies show that play is key to the well being of dogs. Puppies that don’t engage in a lot of play later suffer from behavioral issues such as anxiety and aggression, according to research.
Through this box, puppies are introduced to the different senses they’ll experience later on in life. They’ll be able to familiarize themselves with sounds, sights, motion, and touch.
If your puppy is about 5-10 weeks old, you can build your pet this DIY puppy play box. It’s an inexpensive way of stimulating normal growth and development. Make this as a fun family project. Ask your kids to donate their old toys and join you in making the play box.
