If you’re a gardener, then there are few places you’d rather be than in your garden on a warm spring day or on a cool summer morning. The feel of dirt under your nails doesn’t bother you a bit. You absolutely live for the moment when something you’ve buried months back finally surfaces anew. Our dogs know this feeling as well. They don’t necessarily plant things for beauty or for food, but they do enjoy being outside and occasionally burying something that they can rediscover later. Stay tuned for some activities that will keep your dog entertained while you’re at work in your flourishing garden.
There are actually digging style toys that you can purchase. A plush toy is placed inside of a hollow toy. Your dog is responsible for working to remove the plushie.
As the weather warms up and you’re watering your garden more regularly, your dog might enjoy the occasional squirt of water from the hose. Have some fun together and cool off while doing it. They might even play in the sprinklers!
