I adopted my older dog three years ago. I make sure to walk him 1 hr everyday and get him out of the house as much as I can- he goes anywhere I can take dogs. But he seems incapable of entertaining himself at all. He basically just watches me- jumping up to follow me and gets excited of I put my shoes on thinking we are going somewhere. I feel so bad that unless I’m actively entertaining him he just pouts or sleeps. Does anyone know why some dogs end up like this and how to remedy it? I feel so guilty if I’m not constantly entertaining him but I also have an adult life to live.. I guess I just feel like he doesn’t live a very fun life since I am at work a lot and I can’t take him out all the time and he doesn’t play or even show interest in anything other than going on walks which I only have so much time to take him out- but I am very diligent with making sure he gets a long walk on a daily basis.
