Rainy days mean little time outside and for dog owners this can be stressful!
Most pups are full of energy and look forward to their time running around outside. If you find yourself stuck inside with a hyper dog, try these 5 ways to keep them entertained!
1. Treat Hunt
Scatter treats or toys around the house and send your dog on a hunt to find them all. The excitement of the hunt combined with all the searching will help tucker your pooch. Have fun with it. Hide treats under pillows, behind doors and anywhere that makes for a fun little challenge!
2. Treat Filled Toys
A toy that you can stuff full of treats gives your dog a fun challenge and a sweet reward! Most dogs will tire out from pushing the toy around trying to get the treats out.
3. Run The Stairs
If you have stairs at your home, you have a perfect place to run your dog! Try tag or follow the leader up and down the stairs. This option is great because it’s great exercise for your dog and you!
4. Go Shopping
Brighten your dog’s rainy day with a trip to the pet store! Walking the aisles and sniffing all the toys and treats is super fun. This also combines the physical exercise of walking and the mental exercise of discovering.
5. Try Dog Daycare
Doggy daycare is open rain or shine! At daycare, your dog will be surrounded by so many friends, playing games and learning new tricks that he or she will return home a very tired and happy dog. You can then enjoy a lazy rainy movie night curled up together on the couch!
