Spring is fast approaching. However, we all know that to see those beautiful May blooms, we also have to put up with those inconvenient April showers. These rains can get in the way of you your outdoor pooch’s fun in the sun, but NuVet Labs believes this doesn’t mean you have to stay cooped up indoors. The next time your plans get interrupted by these April showers, here are some fun activities you can do with Fido.
- Play fetch!
Every one, dog owner or not, knows that dogs love chasing balls. Even while it’s raining outside, you can still play fetch with your dog indoors. When you do, just find a clear and safe place you two can play in, and that means no table corners or lamps. While indoors, just roll the ball along a hallway and let your pooch chase after it. It’s a great exercise and a fun way to chase those rainy day blues away.
- Towel tug-o-war
NuVet Labs believes that you don’t have to buy expensive doggie toys to have fun with your furry friend. Find a clean towel that you’re no longer using and turn it into your dog’s favorite new toy. Tie both ends into a knot so the both of you have leverage and let the games begin!
- Doggie obstacle course
Mental stimulation aside from physical activity can be a great way to pass the time until the skies clear. Create an obstacle course using durable boxes, containers, and other such items that your pooch can crawl under or jump over. Once she gets through an obstacle, give her a piece of her favorite treat. Just make sure that your obstacle course is both safe and fun. You’re sure to have the time of your life—you may not want to go outdoors at all!
- Chase the laser
Laser pointers are not just for cats—dogs enjoy them too! Here at NuVet Labs, we recommend that you run to your local drugstore to pick a laser pointer up if you don’t already have one. It can mean endless fun times for you and your pooch! Again, keep safety in mind so make sure you play in an area where there are no dangerous obstacles. Invite your feline pets as well and be prepared to have tons of non-stop entertainment.
- Host a doggie play date
Dogs are one of the most sociable creatures in the animal kingdom so why not host a doggie party? Invite your dog’s friends for a little bit of games, dancing and general entertainment, and you may all just forget about the April showers. You may not even notice that the skies have cleared and the sun has come out. Offer light snacks and some drinks and of course, doggie toys and treats.
