9. An animal kept mostly leashed or confined in a cage, an enclosure, a yard or any other restricted space must have access, inside their containment area, to a daily source of environmental enrichment.
In this Regulation, source of environmental enrichment means the act of providing a diverse environment adapted to the biological needs of the animal, allowing in particular for it to meet its needs to explore, make choices or amuse itself, for example, by providing it with various toys, objects to chew, different rest areas or opportunities to experience and explore its environment.
