A puzzle toy is a great way to keep your pup occupied and provide both mental and physical activity. When it is a cold day, your dog will appreciate having a puzzle toy with which to engage. Typically made of rubber or hard plastic, a puzzle toy will be filled with treats, kibble, or something sticky like peanut butter. Once the treats are inside, your pup can work the puzzle in an effort to get the snacks out. Not only will the puzzle toy keep their interest, it is likely you will get a kick out of watching your dog manipulate the toy to access their reward!
On a cold day in Minnesota, you might feel like staying indoors and curling up with a good book...and your canine buddy of course! Before relaxing on your couch, you can head to Birchbark Books in Minneapolis to choose a book that you want to spend the day with. Your dog is welcome to join you in the store as you explore their large collection of titles. Make sure to keep your pup on their leash during your visit. After you have found just the right book, you and your pup can head home and enjoy some relaxing time together.
