It’s raining today on Long Island, and most of the East Coast it seems! It’s been a long hard winter for much of the country and if you’re feeling a little stir-crazy, just imagine how your dog is feeling by now.
Dogs need exercise to be happy and healthy – just like we do. If you’re stuck inside because of the rain like us here at Fido’s Fences on Long Island, it might seem like the last thing you’ll want to do today but consider pulling on your rain gear and taking at least a short walk. Your dog will feel much better and likely be better behaved after burning off some of that extra energy.
If a rainy walk is just too much (we understand about wet dog smell, really), at least make some extra time for indoor play. You might have to get a little creative but your dog will appreciate it. If you have a treadmill at home and you think your dog is up to it, you can even train him to use that for an easy indoor exercise solution.
