4 Fun Backyard Games for Your Dog this Summer
Spring is here and it is all about being outdoors and making memories with your family and furry friends!
Get some more use out of your backyard by turning it into a field day for your dog. We at Petland, believe it is important for your dogs to have activity during the day to maintain good health. Read on for four fun ways to turn your backyard into games for your pet.
1. Run the maze.
See what you can find around the house to create a maze for your pet. Use items, such as rope, or sticks to create a maze or track for your pet to follow. No matter if you have Frenchie pups or your dog is from the cutest big dog breeds they will be able to participate in the maze game. In the end, be sure to have a prize waiting as their incentive.
2. Fetch a toy in the pool.
Your dog will be so happy with this game. It will keep them cool and busy. Simply buy a kiddie pool and throw in their favorite chew toys for them to fetch. Some dog breeds may have difficulty swimming, such as the Frenchie pups so you should avoid overfilling the pool to make it comfortable and fun.
3. Jump in the pile.
You can get as creative as you like with this game, it is mainly to increase your dog’s activity in a short amount of time. This again can be for the cutest big dog breeds down to Frenchie pups – it doesn’t matter the size. You can make a pile of leaves, or dirt, etc. for your dog to jump in to dig for their prize. The important thing to do here is to make sure they see you burying the toy before you let them have at it. Be sure whatever pile you make is soft enough for your dog to jump in without getting hurt.
4. Hide and seek.
Lastly, this game is just a simple game for you and your pet to enjoy. Don’t let your pup see you and try to hide from them. Call their name and see if they can find you. Most likely they will because you will be in the backyard. This is just a fun way to get some exercise while spending quality time with your dog.
