Winter is the perfect season to spend some much needed time with your pup. With the stress of the holidays and the chaos of family time, it’s good to plan some activities with your dog. It’s important to remember that your dog needs to stay consistent with their exercise and feeding even when the holidays roll around. Here are some ways you and your pup can spend some time together, get exercise in, and enjoy the winter fun!
Sometimes it can just be too cold to go outside with your pup. But they still need a way to get their exercise! If you want to also give their mind a workout, an agility course is the way to do it. Set up items from around your house or check out these tips on how to build your own course. No matter what you do, just make sure every everything is stable and your dog won’t be injured. A carpeted surface is also the best place to do this. We’re sure your pup will have a blast running through the course.
Christmas lights and other holiday decorations can be extremely fun and entertaining to look at. Check out this list of Holiday Light Shows in North Carolina that are sure to blow you away. If you have some great spots in your neighborhood, those are great, too. Just grab your coat and make sure you don’t stay out in the cold for too long with your dog.
Sometimes playing inside just isn’t going to cut it for your dog. If you want to let your dog get all their pent up energy out, head to Lucky Dog Bark and Brew in Charlotte. Not only does this place have a great indoor area for your dog to play, but they also have a bar for you. Kick back and relax while your dog socializes with other pups and has a great time. If you need a place to board your dog while you’re on vacation for the holidays, this is also a great option.
Looking for another way to do something productive with your dog over your holiday break? Work on training and obedience! Sign up for a professional class that is best for your pup’s age and needs. If you want to do something a little more casual, try teaching them some simple, easy tricks at home. Your dog will be showing off their tricks to all your holiday guests before you know it.
Any of these activities can be done with a buddy! Call up a fellow dog-owning friend and set up a time for your pups to play. They’re probably also looking for some fun for their pup. Choose one of these activities, or just have them play in your home. You’ll get time to catch up with a friend while your dog will get to be social with another pup.
Enjoy this holiday season and getting some bonding in with your dog! Happy Holidays!
