Winter is a season where the blues can definitely sneak up on you. But it doesn’t have to be because one of the best ways to enjoy yourself in the winter is to have fun with your dog, who also happens to be looking forward to enjoying the season with you, too.
Now, you might be wondering, “But, what can I do with my dog during the winter?”
Have no fear. Allow us to give you 5 fun, exciting and definitely photo worthy activities you, your dog, and anybody else who wants to have a good time, can enjoy this winter season, and the season after that, and the season after that, and, well, you get the idea!
1. Take a Winter Hike
Seems simple right? It is, and once you start, you’ll want to keep going and going because your dog will want to keep going, too. With a new season comes new sights and scents for your dog, so get ready to see your dog as excited as they were when they were a puppy. And if you have a puppy, then get ready to see them more excited than ever before.
2. Try Skijoring
An amazing mix of cross-country skiing and dog sledding, Skijoring is an exciting activity for both you and your dog, and according to Rover.com, it is one of the “best dog sports you’ve never heard of."
3. Playing Fetch in the Snow
Your dog doesn’t care what time of the year it is when it comes to fetch. If they love fetch in the warmer months, they will love it just as much in the colder ones, maybe even more so, since they can frolic in the snow while doing it.
Pro tip: make sure whatever your throwing is brightly colored, or else your dog may be spending more time hunting for what you threw in the snow than actually fetching it.
4. Play in the Snow
If your beloved K9 sees you playing in the snow, jumping into it, rolling in it, while laughing like a child, you better believe they will follow right along with you. And if you think playing in the snow by yourself is fun, just wait until you do it with your dog right beside you!
5. Enjoy a movie together
We all know those days where it’s just too cold to go outside. The wind is blowing, and your fingers get numb just thinking about leaving the warmth of your warm abode. Don’t fret. Instead, snuggle up with your dog and watch a movie you will both like, while enjoying some tasty snacks. Perhaps some hot chocolate and cookies for you, and some WellyChef Homemade Dog Food Done Right Base Mix for your dog. Just a thought.
Don’t let winter ruin the fun you and your dog can have. Instead, embrace the snowy season and have the kind of fun you can’t have in the summer!
