With so much rain last week and more this week, your dogs may be going stir crazy. Try some of these tips to help them out on rainy days.
- This is a good time for a new toy! Especially interactive toys if you have a small home or apartment.
- A trip to the pet store is a great DRY place to get some exercise. They are happy to see your pet and make it easy to give them a break from the house. Tractor Supply also loves pets in the store. Did you know Cabellas is dog friendly? They just ask that you don’t take your dog near the cafe!
- I find that baby wipes are a great thing to have handy to clean muddy paws and they won’t irritate your pets paws. If rain is around for several days, you may want to use some coconut oil on your pets pads to soften them from the repeated cleaning. A great time is at bedtime since they will sleep for a while or are kenneled then.
- Make sure that you watch your pet or keep them on a leash when it is raining. The worst thing is to have your dog run off because of a clap of thunder or lightning.
