Recreation Activities For You And Your Bearded Dragon
Bearded dragons aren’t hyperactive animals with whom you can exercise or train, and they will never chase a ball, or play Fetch with you, but if you want to spend some time with your pet and focus on his recreational activity, there are a few things you could do.
Before you get all recreational with your pet there are a few things you should know, firstly, bearded dragons aren’t toys, they are living creatures, and you have to be careful with them. If he changes his behavior, unexpectedly that means he doesn’t want to play with you, and he wants to be left alone. When your pet gets about 6 inches long, you can start playing with him, but slowly and not that long, when he is twice as long you can take him for a walk.
- Walking with your pet. If you decide to take your bearded dragon for a walk, make sure the place you are
taking him to is people, pet, and predators-free. The walking area should also be free of chemicals and pesticides, the temperature shouldn’t be too cold, and your pet always has to have a place to hide from the sun. There won’t be as mush walking as they will be observing of the world around him but you have to be patient, it is a big world for such a small cute creature.
