Do you have tons of ideas for fun things to do with your dog in the summer but struggle to keep them entertained when the cold sets in? Globalvet has plenty of ideas for indoor activities you can do with your dog and the whole family while staying nice and warm!
USE YOUR IMAGINATION TO AMUSE YOUR PUP
Get your kids involved or have fun on your own making unique toys for your furry friend using things you have lying around the house.
WORK OUT OR DO YOGA WITH YOUR DOG AT HOME
Being active is good for you and getting your dog to join in is a great way to have even more fun working out! Exercising with your dog is also a good way to spend quality time together. It may not go smoothly the first time, but there are things you can do to get your dog used to exercising with you calmly. The important thing is to never force them and to always respect their limits.
If you’re looking for a more restorative activity, why not try yoga with your dog? For tips and ideas on including your dog in your stretching routine, watch this video.
USE PUZZLE BOWLS TO FEED AND STIMULATE YOUR DOG
These bowls are the perfect way to combine mealtime and playtime. They require your dog to use their nose, their brain, and their paws. Choose a puzzle bowl that suits your dog’s personality and lets you increase the level of difficulty. Your dog may start solving the puzzle really quickly, so it’s nice to have the option to make it a bit harder but still solvable so they don’t get frustrated. Visit your Globalvet clinic to check out the wide variety of interactive toys in store. If you have more time and want a project, you can make a toy at home to entertain your pup. Always make sure to supervise your dog when playing with a homemade toy.
