Activity description

When summer arrives and the mercury starts to rise, it's important that you can find plenty of easy ways for your dog to cool off. Sometimes cooling down can be practical, such as sitting in front of an air-conditioner, but at other times it can be a whole lot of fun.

This backyard game is a simple way to let your dog get a little bit of exercise but also stay cool in the summer months. As long as your dog isn't afraid of water, there's nothing to stop them having a whale of a time chasing the water from your garden hose and getting soaking wet.

Step
1
Play time
When your dog looks like they need to cool off, head out into the yard and turn on the hose. Your dog will likely be interested in what you're doing, and by squirting the water in front of them you can encourage them to start "chasing" the stream of water as if it's prey. You can also give them a quick squirt to cool off -- just make sure to avoid their face.
Step
2
Mix it up
When your dog gets tired of chasing the water, you can try other things to keep them entertained and help them stay cool. For example, you might like to treat them to a misting spray, get them to join you while you water the garden, or fill a kiddie pool with water for them to splash around in. Just make sure your pooch never gets too cold, and remember to dry them off thoroughly when play time is over.

As you're no doubt aware, it's quite easy to spend a fortune getting the latest and greatest toys for your dog, only for them to play with each item once and forget about it. But sometimes the best games are ones you can make yourself at home, with minimal expense.

The Muffin Tin Game is a paw-fect example. It's quick and easy to set up using a few simple items you can find around the home, and it offers a fun mental challenge for your pooch. They also get the pleasure of a tasty snack or two, so there are plenty of reasons why it's the ideal game for a rainy day.

Step
1
Set it up
Preparing for the Muffin Tin Game is simple. All you need is an old muffin tray from your kitchen cabinet, some tennis balls and a few of your dog's favorite treats. Put treats in a few of the muffin cups, and then cover each cup with a tennis ball. With this done, it's time to go and find your dog.
Step
2
Find the treats
Place the muffin tin in front of your dog and watch as they investigate it. Their powerful nose will pick up the scent of food nearby, and it's then up to your pooch to work out how to move the tennis balls to find the treats hidden beneath. This is a paw-some boredom buster and should provide plenty of mental stimulation for your pooch and a whole lot of entertainment for you.

Activity description
Stand-up paddleboarding is a wonderful way for humans to get some exercise. You can work on your core strength, raise a sweat, and get back to nature all at the same time.

But stand-up paddleboarding is even better when you bring your pooch along for the ride! With your furry friend at your feet, paddling your way around the ocean, river or lake is just so much more enjoyable. Your dog gets to spend some quality time with you and receives plenty of mental stimulation just from exploring the new sights and smells out on the water.

And if it's a particularly hot day, they can always take a dip to cool off as well.

Step
1
Pick your spot
If you've got your own paddleboard, you're free to hit the water wherever you want. If not, you'll need to find a rental company near you where you can hire a board for an hour or two. Just make sure that the water conditions are nice and calm wherever you go, and that your pooch has a doggy life jacket to help them stay safe.
Step
2
Get out on the water
Some dogs will want to join you on your board straight away. Others, however, will require plenty of encouragement to leave dry land. Whichever category your pooch falls into, let them tackle this new sport at their own pace and make sure you stick close to shore while they get used to the idea of being on a board.
Step
3
Explore
Once your dog has got the hang of it, you can set out and explore your surroundings. Your pooch will love checking out the new sights, sounds and smells, not to mention the simple pleasure of spending time with their human. Bonding with your dog and getting a relaxing workout at the same time -- what more could you want?
