It's wet and raining outside today and the dogs are feeling cooped up!! It's hard to decide: Do you let them run around out in the rain and wet then have to be restricted when they are in the house or limit their outside activity so they stay dry....Well either way They are totally NUTS today!!
What are some things that you can do on days like this?
Practice obedience --- Like getting all 4 of your dogs to sit and stay at ONCE!!
Give them something new to chew on---- We buy marrow bones from a butcher shop near us. I keep them in the freezer and on days like this, they all get a yummy bone and are happy and occupied for a while. Don't let your dog have a bone for too when you first start introducing them to their diet. They can get a bad stomach.
Drink ----- Hahahahah!! Just kidding but for certain, a glass.... or three of wine will certainly calm you down even if they still act crazy!
Grooming ------Willow and Leighla can always use some attention. I have a small clipper and several combs and brushes. Any and all time you spend brushing and tending to their coat will be time well spent. Don't worry if you are not a professional groomer, just get them used to the activity.
I found an old shirt, tied it in some knots and we had a powerful game of tug of war.
Looks like the crew is pooped out for the moment!!
Well, happy snow, rain, sleet day to you all and to all your Furry Friends!!!
