It's too cold! It's too hot! It's too rainy! It's too muddy! It's storming! Chances are, at one point or another, one of these conditions has kept you and your dog from getting outside, but that doesn't mean you can't still have some fun indoors. After all, unless you work outside, it's probably where you spend much of your time anyway. Learning to take advantage of it can prove to be truly beneficial for both you and your dog, mentally and physically, as Mother Nature can often be unpredictable and change an entire day's worth of plans. So here are a few ideas you can run with should you ever find yourself trapped (or purposely) indoors.
While many dogs prefer to spend their time outside, having fun inside can be just as rewarding. If they tend to get stuck there while you and your family are at work, school, or engaging in other activities without them, it's also a great way to add some positivity to a space that can sometimes get lonesome. Those good associations can also help motivate them to come inside when they may be reluctant to otherwise. If you do it right, they may be just as excited when you say "let's go inside" as they do when you say "let's go outside". Or at least one can only hope.
