How To Keep Your Dog Occupied in Winter

How can you keep your dog occupied in winter?

Winter can be a challenging time to keep our furry friends entertained indoors!

Here are some pawsome tips to ensure your dog stays active and happy during the chilly months!


1. Indoor Fetch: Clear a safe space in your home and play a gentle game of fetch. Soft toys or indoor-friendly balls work best.

2. Treat Puzzle Toys: Invest in treat-dispensing toys or puzzle feeders. They keep your dog mentally stimulated while rewarding them with tasty treats. Check out our range of enrichment puzzle toys on our website.

3. Hide and Seek: A fun game for both you and your dog! Start by hiding and calling your dog. As they get the hang of it, let them hide while you seek. An optional game is 'hide and treat', hide their favourite treats and let them find them around the house!

4. Interactive Toys: Toys that squeak, rattle or require your dog to figure out a challenge can be a hit. Rotate toys weekly to keep them interested.

5. Tug of War: A classic game that can be played indoors. Just ensure you have a strong, durable toy and play safely to avoid any accidental nips. We do make tough tug toys ourselves!

6. Training Sessions: Use this time indoors to teach your dog new tricks or reinforce existing commands. Mental stimulation is just as tiring as physical activity!

7. Sensory Activities: Create a sensory box with different textures like blankets, toys, and treats. Let your dog explore and engage their senses.


Remember, each dog has it's own preferences, so observe what excites your dog the most and tailor activities accordingly.


Stay warm, stay active and cherish these cosy moments with your furry companion!
