What is enriched environment? Simply put, the term “enriched environment” means changes in the life of a person or animal that represent different kinds of additions and complications which are aimed at raising the level of wellbeing.

This means that enriched environment increases the level of physical and psychological health, and, hence, overall wellbeing. Moreover, enriched environment makes the bond between a pet and their human stronger.
