We are living in unprecedented times. Like many around the world, we are all at home practicing social distancing. This is tough, and many people are finding the isolation difficult. The silver lining in all of this for those of us that have dogs, we have great companions, and the social distancing DOES NOT apply to your pup! :) In fact, this extra time we have at home is a great opportunity to bond with your pup and show them even more love than usual!
You can still get outside and take your pup for a run, walk or hike but we thought we would share a few great activities you can do with your pup at home
1. Hide treats around your house and have your pup search to find them
2. You can make (or buy) puzzle boards for your pup and help them to open them up for treats. Here are some ideas for DIY Brain Games for your dogs that you can make from items you likely already have around the home :)
3. Play tug of war with your dogs (my dogs like to play this together too...here is a video! :
4. Teach your dog some new tricks! It is never too late :) There are a ton of awesome Youtube videos to find some ideas and instructions on how to teach your dog new tricks! Here is one to get you started!
