When the weather turns cold or rainy for extended periods of time, it can be difficult to give dogs as much exercise and play outside. If you have an energetic breed that require lots of play or a dog accustomed to spending lots of time outdoors, being cooped up indoors can lead to boredom and potentially destructive behavior such as house soiling, barking and chewing. Here are some simple tips to help your four-legged friend beat the cabin fever blues.

Find ways to play and get exercise in the house
A simple game of chase up and down the stairs or fetch is a great way to give your dog a workout and release pent up energy. A treadmill can also provide your dog with a fun, safe and different way to get the exercise they need.

An ample supply of different kinds of dog toys is also a must. Dog puzzle toys in particular are a great way to keep your pooch mentally stimulated and provide a challenge that makes them work for a treat. Teaching your dog new tricks is also a simple way to keep your pooch entertained. There are countless websites with easy step-by-step instructions for you to follow.

Give your dog extra attention

As simple as it sounds, one of the best things you can do is spend more quality time with your dog. A grooming session with plenty of hugging and petting will also bring you closer together!


Get outside when you can

Even a quick 10 to 15 minute walk outside will do wonders for your dog. If you’re dog does not like walking in the rain, you can help to keep them dry by investing in a canine raincoat.

Doggy day care

If you don't have extra time to spare or will be away for long periods of the day, perhaps you should consider doggy day care for your pooch. Doggy day care helps build your dog’s social skills (with both humans and other dogs) and allows them to play in a safe, supervised environment.
