Rainy Day Activities

Jul 31, 2017   John   Pet Care Tips

With Tropical Storm Emily keeping most of us indoors, I thought I would share some of my favorite indoor activities to keep you and your pooch busy.

  1.  Play!  The activities we like to do fully utilize the space of our condo.  Play a game of hide-and-seek or if you have long halls, a good game of fetch or soccer is always a winner.  If you live in a building where the noise of a bouncing ball may bother neighbors, these Hol-ee Rollers are awesome!
  2. Teach your dog some new tricks!  One trick I enjoy is naming my dogs’ toys and teaching them to retrieve each by name.  One trick my dogs may never learn is how to put toys away, but it is a worthy one to teach if your dog is willing to learn!
  3. If you are working from home because of the weather, hiding treats around the house or filling up a treat ball will let your dog have a rewarding and interactive activity.  A Kong ball filled with peanut butter and treats is also a great way to give you both some personal time.
  4. Last but not least, curl up with your dog and a good book or catch up on some TV.  My dogs love to cuddle with me during a round of binge watching my favorite shows.
