Here are a few staff-tested activities that can stimulate your pets and burn off some of that excess energy when it's raining outside.
- Search and sniff
Hide treats like ZIWI® Good Dog Rewards™ around your home to keep your dog occupied searching for the hidden treasures.
- Schedule a playdate
l a fellow pet guardian surprise your dog with a visit from one of their friends. Set up a safe designated play area where you can easily supervise them.
- Interactive feeder
Stimulate and captivate your pet with stuffable toys and treat ‘puzzles’. Put some ZIWI Peak® air-dried through the opening and let them go to work.
- Tug of war
All you need for this old school game is a tough rope and a dog or cat who’s ready to play.
- Feeding mat
Spread ZIWI Peak wet food over the surface of a feeding mat for a medical-free way to calm your pet while home alone or during stressful times, like storms.
Of course cleaning toys is critical to your pet's health, so we always recommend a quick soak in warm soapy water afterwards.
- Hall ball
A long straight hallway is ideal for this game. Similar to fetch, take a ball and roll it down a long hallway. Your dog or cat will go racing after it without unpredictably tearing through your home.
- Trick training or reinforcement
- Chew through the day
ZIWI oral chews are perfect for occupying part of a day, especially our long-lasting, great-tasting Venison Shanks.
Get out of the house and take your dog to a dog friendly store or dog specialty store to browse and shop on a gloomy day.
- Quality time
Don't forget that lots of pats, attention, and a good toy will provide enough distraction for your pet to make it through the day.
