If you’ve been isolated for a long time, you’re undoubtedly becoming bored. Doggys have the ability to lift one’s spirits and make even the most mundane days more enjoyable. It doesn’t imply you can’t have fun at home just because you’re practicing social distancing.
Many of us are working from home with our furry new coworkers these days, or trying not to go insane chasing our own tails! In any case, we’ve compiled a list of ten entertaining activities you can do with your pet during quarantine to keep you both happy and healthy!
— Work on the Heel Command
When you go on a stroll, does your doggy pull on the leash? Now is an excellent moment to begin practicing the heel command. During your stay at home order, you may take more walks than usual, which means you’ll have more time to train. Because you may go on walks more frequently at this time, your doggy will learn more faster because the training will be fresh in their minds.
Allow your doggy to walk ahead of you and then turn around and walk in a different direction once they reach the end of the leash. Pull the leash tight and say “heel” to catch your doggy’s attention. Your doggy will ultimately learn to walk with you rather than in front of you by following you in the new path.
Give your doggy a reward every time he or she obeys your command if he or she needs some positive reinforcement. Your doggy will have mastered the heel command and will no longer tug on the leash by the conclusion of quarantine!
— Search and Sniff games
Hide treats about the home and tell your pet to “go get/find it.” Make a DIY muffin pan treat search by scattering kibble or treats around the kitchen, backyard, or rolling treats into a towel.
— A Nice Meal
We don’t always have time for a pleasant sit-down lunch in today’s fast-paced society. It’s a fantastic time to take it easy and focus on the little things. Make your own centerpiece and set the table. You can get creative by repurposing household items or going for a walk to uncover something beautiful in nature. Here are some delicious supper ideas for you and your doggy.
— Watch a Good Movie
A movie night can be precisely what you need if you’re stuck at home with nothing to do. Invite your doggy over for some much-needed cuddling and a movie! To pique your doggy’s attention, watch a film about doggies. Doggies will frequently watch television with you and become engrossed in what is being shown on the screen, particularly when they hear familiar sounds. A movie night with your doggy is a great way to unwind and forget about your worries.
Spring cleaning might be a difficult process, but having a friend by your side as you rummage through your closet can make it more enjoyable! You might also ask them what they think of any outdated clothes that you’re not sure about. You never know, they might respond to you.
— Doga (Doggy Yoga)
The first rule of doggy yoga is that you should never force it. Yoga should be a part of your everyday walks and fun. Yoga can not only help you relax, but it can also provide you and your doggy more quality time together. Bring out your yoga mat and let your doggy to investigate the space. If he appears to be interested in what you’re doing, include him in certain yoga positions.
You can still perform some yoga with your doggy if you’re going for a walk around the neighborhood. While your doggy has a pee break, you can practice your crescent lunge or even tree position on the pavement.
Nowadays, staying at home is the new normal. It has impacted not only us humans, but also everyone around us, even our pet companions. It’s never too late to do these things with your pet to strengthen your bond even further. Stay safe and have a good one.
