While going away on vacation is always fun, it is not always practical when you have a dog. You may not want to leave your pup behind but it can be hard to travel far with them in tow. However, next time it is raining and you just really need to get out of the house, why not try a staycation with your dog? This means that you stay in Rhode Island and go on a vacation in your home state! You won't have to travel far and your dog can easily come with you for the fun. Sounds like a perfect idea for a rainy day. 

Step
1
Hotel search
Find a hotel nearby that allows pups. There are many in the Rhode Island region that are dog-friendly and in a variety of price ranges so you don't have to break the bank to get out and spend a night away. Call the hotel to make sure there are no hidden dog-related fees before booking.
Step
2
Spa day
Plan a spa day for you and your pup while at the hotel. This means you will not need to even leave the room, just bring a few tools to pamper your dog and yourself. A dog brush, some nail clippers and maybe a few decadent treats that you and your pup can enjoy.
Step
3
Movie time
Pick out a movie or show for you and your dog to watch while you cuddle up on the couch. A rainy day is the perfect day to lounge around and watch a show with your dog. Your Rhode Island rainy day staycation wouldn't be complete without a nice relaxing cuddle session!

Activity description

When it has been raining for days and you are just tired of being inside, you may need to get out of the house for a bit. Your dog probably feels the same - even they can get bored of hanging out at home all day. A great idea is to check out a local Rhode Island dog-friendly restaurant. You can bring your dog, get something to eat and be away from your house for a while. Since all of these restaurants allow dogs inside, you don't have to worry about the rain but can instead just enjoy a nice lunch or dinner with your best friend - your dog! 

Step
1
Blu
The restaurant called Blu On The Water in East Greenwich Rhode Island is a perfect place to bring your dog. There are plenty of pup-friendly tables and you get an ocean view. Yes, the food is also pretty good as well! Even though it may be raining, it is still nice to sit undercover with a gorgeous waterfront view.

2
Coffee Date
The Coffee Exchange in Providence, Rhode Island (the state's centrally located capital) is a great casual place to bring your dog. If you don't feel like going out for a full lunch or dinner but would rather grab a quick rainy day coffee with your pup, this is the place to go!
Step

Beer and food
Rogue Island, centrally located in Rhode Island in downtown Providence, loves when people bring their pups inside. This restaurant supports local breweries and is a great place to try some new beers while your dog relaxes by your side. A nice way to spend a rainy afternoon with your dog!

Activity description

If you don’t' feel like leaving your house when it is raining, there is still plenty you can do inside with your dog. These games are perfect for when it has just started raining and you and your dog are still happy to just be at home with each other. There is also minimal equipment required to play these activities so you don't need to get much of anything at all! Don't even think about that Rhode Island rain, just get ready to have fun inside with your pup! In fact, when the sun does come back out, you may still want to keep playing these games - they are just so much fun!

Step
1
Hide and seek
Have your dog wait in one room while you run and hide in the other. Call their name once and see if your dog can find you. When they do, reward them with love and attention as well as treats. Then, hide again in a more challenging place! Hide and seek is a perfect Rhode Island rainy day game!
Step
2
Treat puzzle
Keep your dog busy with a treat dispensing puzzle toy which you can buy or make yourself with a few things you may have around the house. The easiest one is to just use a muffin tin with a few treats in each cup. Place a tennis ball on top of the holes in the tin and see if your dog can knock the balls off to reveal their treat!
Step
3
Rain run
Just because it is raining doesn't mean you have to stay inside! Run outside in the rain with your dog and don't worry about if you both get soaking wet - rain is fun! Dance and play, sing and chase each other in this wet, exciting activity that will feel freeing and enjoyable. Rain can be cleansing for the body and soul (and do a great job cleaning your dog!).
