Are you a dog owner who takes seriously the need for exercise for your pet? Does your precious pup truly enjoy the time you spend together when you’re exercising or playing with them? Surely, the answer to these questions is a resounding ‘yes!’ but, how about those days when you can’t get outside with your furry family member? What about those days when it’s raining and you can’t walk or run with your pet on your normal route or participate in your normal exercise routine due to inclement weather? What if you live in Maine where the weather can not only be rainy but also pretty chilly? Wag! wants to help you with this dilemma because we know that your dog needs physical and mental stimulation even when the weather outside is wet and frightful -- we want to give you some ideas for activities for dogs in Maine on rainy days.
This activity can be done any day you wish but it is an excellent choice for those rainy or otherwise inclement weather days. While exercising your pet is important for their physical and mental outlook, a relaxing and quiet time at home with their favorite family member is vital to their emotional outlook. For some dogs, bathing and grooming isn't always appreciated but, when it's coupled with hugs, cuddles and back scratching, it's always better.
This is an activity which many pet owners may not even have considered in the past. Pet stores, as well as many other types of stores, will happily accommodate well-behaved precious pups. Just bring them along, appropriately collared and leashed of course, and casually browse up and down each aisle in the store, allowing them to sniff to investigate all of those unusual and interesting scents.
This is an activity which can be done in the comfort of your own home. It is very simple for both you and your pooch. Just choose some of your pet's favorite toys or a special type of treat that they love. Find interesting, but not terribly difficult places in which to hide them and then turn your doggy loose to sniff them out and retrieve them. This is a great mental and physical exercise to hone those hunting skills which all canines have.
This activity can also be done in the comfort of your home. It can be fun and lots of exercise for your pup. Select their favorite toys, toss them across the room, watch and enjoy as they chase and retrieve. Rinse and repeat as many times as you like.
