Exercise is important for dogs of all ages and breeds, even in the winter. Here are 10 ways to keep your dog active during the cold weather months:
Swimming is a low-impact exercise that is great for dogs of all ages and abilities. Indoor pools are a great option for swimming in the winter.
Snowshoeing and skiing are great ways to get exercise and enjoy the winter outdoors with your dog. Make sure your dog has a warm coat and boots, and take breaks often.
Fetch is a classic dog game that can be enjoyed year-round. In the winter, try playing fetch indoors with a soft toy or outdoors in the snow.
Hide-and-seek is another fun and challenging game for dogs. Use treats to lure your dog to find you, or try hiding in a new place each time.
Tug-of-war is a great way to bond with your dog and give them a good workout. Be careful not to pull too hard, and let your dog win sometimes.
Trick training is a fun and rewarding way to exercise your dog's mind. Teach your dog new tricks or brush up on old ones.
