DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (PRWEB) January 01, 2023
January and February bring the lowest temperatures of the year in many regions, leaving dogs, cats and their pet parents stuck inside with little to do while they wait out the freezing temps and inclement weather. Inactivity in the winter can leave pets with low energy, weight gain, and even seasonal depression.
Staying active and mentally fit is possible for dogs and cats even when it’s too cold to go out. The winter is a great time to try puzzle toys, indoor games like hide and seek, and other mentally stimulating activities for pets.
An easy way to entertain pets is to hide toys and treats in rolled up dishtowels for pets to find. Sniffing and scavenging games can offer many of the same physical and mental health benefits as high impact exercise and can be adapted for dogs and cats of all ages and skill levels.
“Most pet parents look forward to spring when it’s warm enough to go for walks and hikes, but there’s plenty of ways to keep dogs and cats engaged in the meantime.” says Larissa Schenck, director of marketing at PetMeds®. “Trick training, nose work, and even outings to pet-friendly stores allow pets to stretch their legs without braving the cold.”
