It is raining and has been raining for days. You and your pup are beginning to go a little stir crazy and you need something to do! With the weather forecast not looking too good, you need to come up with fresh activities right away. So what is there to do in Alaska in the rain with a dog? Plenty of things! Ignore that rain rapping on your window and get ready to have some fun with your pup.
While you may be very familiar with outdoor dog parks in Alaska, have you ever been to an indoor dog park? Well, if you are a fan of the outside version, then this is something you definitely need to check out! Indoor dog parks are ideal as they are year round and not dependent on the weather. So when a storm cluster is looming over Alaska, you won't care because you'll be inside with your dog, having fun running around with other pups just as you would if the sun was shining. Head out to your car and get ready for some indoor fun specially made for your dog.
All of the rain outside may have you thinking about swimming. While we don't recommend you go swim in the puddles of the streets, there are places you can go swimming with your dog that are nicely located inside. An indoor swimming pool for dogs - this must be a dream! This dream is actually a reality and there are plenty of indoor doggy pools in Alaska that you can visit no matter what the weather. Swimming is also great exercise for all types of dogs. Senior dogs benefit by exercising with low impact on their joints and young pups will just love being able to go, go, go!
When the rain is just coming down in buckets, you still need to take your dog out a few times during the day to go to the bathroom. You are going to get wet, your dog will be wet and maybe you won't mind. Maybe, you want to get even wetter! If you have a dog who doesn't mind the rain, then this is the activity for you. You and your water-loving pup are about to have a blast despite the rain. Bring along some towels and maybe even a change of clothes for you as this game is going to leave you soaked.
Grab a few puzzle toys for your dog to play with inside while you hide from the Alaskan rain. Make new puzzles or treat hiding toys for your dog if they are bored of ones they have - a perfect rainy day activity for you!
If the Alaskan rain has got you and your dog down, get out of the house by booking a room at a dog-friendly hotel. You and your pup can relax and stay dry in a new and luxurious setting.
While rain can be pesky and deter you from wanting to go outside, it doesn’t mean that you cannot have fun with your pup. In fact, you may have even more fun with these activities that you may never have tried if it wasn't raining! There is plenty to do with your dog in Alaska no matter what the weather so get out there, bring your pup and allow yourself to have a fantastic time!
