Dog Exercising Tips In Winter

 

Lady dog gym exerciseEven though it gets cold outside, your dog needs exercise to stay healthy and strong. Here are some great pet exercising tips for this winter season:

  1. dog on treadmillBelieve it or not, you can teach your dog to use your treadmill.  There are also doggie treadmills available. See Cesar’s link below for more details!
  2. Get outdoors! A 30 minute work-out in the snow will leave your dog exhausted.
  3. Have a play date. Set up a play date with a dog that your pup is friends with. Just make sure to hide the breakables!
  4. Being indoors gives you a great opportunity to practice targeting with your dog. Teach her to touch her nose to the back of your hand on command; this will make her focus on a target. It’s a great exercise because it gives you an activity you can do together. And once your pup has learned how to do this, you can use it whenever you want her to stop what she’s doing and focus. For example, if you’re out walking and she becomes excited when she sees another dog, you can use targeting to redirect her attention. Plus, your dog can’t bark when she’s touching her nose to your hand!
  5. Challenge your dog’s nose.Dogs have incredibly powerful scenting abilities, so exercises that require your pal to use her nose are especially stimulating. Make her work for her dinner by creating an obstacle course she has to get through to find her food. Hide her meal in a box, or, better yet, put it in a Kong Wobbler or a Buster Ball.For more information, visit the following links:Cesar’s Way: 6 Winter Exercise Tips for Your DogDogster: 10 Ways to Engage Your Dog Indoors
