Stuck at home? How to Keep Your Dog Mobile and Active at Home Amid the Coronavirus Pandemic

how to keep your dog mobile and active at home

Hopefully, you're self-isolating and protecting our communities and planet during this chaotic time where the coronavirus is still new to us and still scary and unknown. 
Since we are equipped with Netflix, quarantine is almost blissful but it might not be the case for your pup who is used to long walks and outdoor time. It's still important for their physical and mental well being that they move around and their brains are occupied.

1. Invest in a couple of Interactive Treat Dispensing Toys

Here's Baxter's favorite Treat-Dispensing Interactive Toy!

It's super simple to use and entertains your pooch for a long time. Fill up the toy with your dog's favorite treat or dry food and place it on the ground. Your pup will push the moving toy around the house in search of delicious treats, treats only come out a few at a time, forcing your dog to eat slowly and spend a long time trying to get every last bit of delicious out. Click here to grab yours

2. Play Hide and Seek

Hide some dry treats in this treat ball and hide the ball under a table or couch, and watch your pup smell around to find the toy and then spend hours trying to get the delicious treats out of it. Here's the one we use for Baxter, it's also one of the best selling treat toys. Grab your treat ball here

3. Slow Down Feeding Time & wake up his inner Einstein

Just like us, dogs tend to overeat when they're bored. If you find your dog is eating too much too fast, try using the SniffSnuffle Snuffle Mat

It's perfect for fast eaters, or if you have an older dog that can't move around much anymore or even if you just need to work on your laptop and need your pup to keep quiet and entertain himself for a while!

It's super easy to use and clean, use it with dry food only. Grab your SniffSnuffle Puzzle Mat on sale here

4. Home School your Pup

What better time to teach your pooch some new tips and tricks? Baxter's cousin Mocha the Akita loves scratching the door when she wants to come back in from the yard. We trained Mocha to ring a doorbell when she wants to come in with a special doorbell with a touch button, made just for dogs!

You can also reverse use it for when your dog wants to go outside.
