Even when the weather is really bad, dogs still need to go out to do their business and to get their daily amount of exercise. But rain is one of the most common problems a dog owner encounters when the weather turns bad. Should you really go out in the rain? Or should you try skipping the regular walk and just play inside and quickly let your pup outside whenever he has to go potty? There is actually nothing wrong with a dog walk in the rain if done properly.
Dogs need exercise, regardless of the weather. In snow, sunshine or rain, they still need mental and physical stimulation. If they don’t get enough activity throughout the day, they may invent their own fun activities out of your shoes, books, furniture, or anything else that can be chewed on. Of course, there are some days where the weather may be too hot, too cold, too windy, or where you just feel like doing something else with your dog. On these days, it’s good idea to have a variety of ideas for ways you can entertain your dog in the comfort of your own home. And luckily, there are lots of things you can do indoors that may keep your dog mentally and physically in shape. These few dog entertainment ideas may be helpful!
