When it's cold outside, we often cuddle up with our furry companions. While it's enjoyable to get cozy now and then, keeping your pet active during the winter is necessary for their health. When you and your pet are stuck indoors, with a little creativity, one can still obtain some physical and mental stimulation.
Fun Activities to do with your pets:
1. MAKE MEALTIMES ENGAGING
You can always make mealtimes more challenging than usual throughout the cold months to keep your pet stimulated. Your dog or cat can be both interested and mentally engaged when working for their food. You can purchase a snack toy or easily create one at home. For dogs, cut a small hole in a tennis ball, and for cats, cut holes in a plastic water bottle. To make this challenging - make sure that the holes are wide enough to allow treats to pass through, but not so wide that food falls out easily. You can put dry food in your snack toy or choose small treats.
2. BUILD A CARDBOARD FORT FOR YOUR CAT
Cat owners can create a cardboard fortress for your cat to explore, using any leftover boxes. Cut holes in boxes for your cat to peep outside and make tunnels for them to climb through. Your cat will be entertained and occupied for hours with a new spot to play, hide, and rest in. Use treats to lure them into fort.
3. A TRAINING SESSION
Make a training session with your cat or dog. Try to teach them a new trick and refresh their memory by doing past commands. Training gives mental stimulation, and this depends on how physically demanding the training is, it also might help your pet get exercise.
4. FEED A BBQ BONE
Dogs and cats, being carnivores, are genetically designed to love and excel at chewing, particularly on raw bones. To substitute this, use an ALL NATURAL PRINCE BBQ BONE to keep them occupied, giving mental stimulation, while also cleansing your teeth.
