I love to play with my dog Alex very much. But he always loves to sleep and never active. Could you please advise me what should I do to make him active?

Dogs are social animals and need mental as well as physical stimulation to keep them active and healthy. Playing with your dog is a fun part of your relationship with him.In fact, play helps build the relationship. Most dogs love dog toys and find them really fun. You’ll be happy to see that they can hold your dog’s attention for hours. Playing usually requires two participants, but with some toys, your dog can play on his own.Your dog should play with toys made from firm, elastic materials that aren’t dangerous to him. Regularly exercising your dog will allow him to use up this excess energy, to toilet, mentally stimulate him and overall he will probably be better socialised with other animals and people. It is generally better to take the dog out at least twice a day. Dogs can also become lethargic and sleepy from medical illness like hypothyroidism, etc. If persists, consult your vet.
