Tossing a tennis ball with your family dog does more than build a bond. As members of the canid family, a domestic dog’s intelligence stays sharp and his senses alert through stimulation, problem-solving, walks filled with scents to explore and, of course, the universal language of play.
The Enrichment Experience at the Endangered Wolf Center gives visitors the rare opportunity to help provide the animals in our care with a similar kind of exercise and stimulation.
Participants watch up-close as members of our Animal Care team toss bones, ice blocks packed with rewards inside and various scented objects into the habitats of our wolves, swift foxes, and African painted dogs for them to investigate and explore, encouraging these natural behaviors.
Since they don’t have miles of territory to hunt and patrol like they would in the wild, such enrichment opportunities are an important part of their care and well-being.
This 30-minute experience is offered at 3 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Call 636-938-5900 for reservations.
