Why is enrichment important?

Enrichment allows our dogs to be dogs. It provides fun outlets for normal dog behaviors  and it is crucial to any  dog’s welfare. It allows owners time to not to have to watch their dogs like hawks as the dog is set up for success to do normal dog things, such as chewing.  What are your favorite enrichment toys or games?
