What to do when the temperatures keep rising and you and your pets are cooped up indoors?  Try some of these activities to beat the heat and have a blast while doing it!

  • Teach your old dog new tricks.  What a perfect opportunity to work on the basics or teach your pet a fun new trick.  Check a book out from the library or search online for ideas!
  • Take a class.  Many pet obedience schools have indoor (and air conditioned!) facilities for classes.  Now is a great time to learn basic obedience, take up agility, or work on your AKC Canine Good Citizen title.
  • Play hide-and-seek!  Practice hiding toys, treats, or yourself from your pet.
  • Indulge a little.  Now is a perfect time to splurge on that new toy or treat you have been eyeing.  Consider an interactive item for your pet such as a puzzle or a treat-dispensing toy.
  • Check to see if your community has an indoor dog park or a doggy daycare for your pup to work off some energy.
  • Pamper your pet.  Take this opportunity to catch up on that much-needed brushing, nail trimming, or even give your pet a bath!

Don’t let the heat get you down!  There are plenty of ways to enjoy your pet indoors, too! If you have any questions, give us a call!
