Now that it’s starting to get chilly outside, it can be challenging for your dog to get the exercise it needs. Taking a walk doesn’t necessarily sound as exciting in sub-freezing temperatures. However, exercise is vital for a dog’s wellness, so it’s important to consider alternate cold weather options. Here are a few of our favorites
Hide and Seek - Also giving you a good opportunity to practice “come” with your dog, hide and seek can keep your pup warm inside and mentally stimulated while looking for their favorite toy or treat.
Stairs - Why should your dog being the only one getting exercised? Utilize the steps inside your house and go up and down the floors with your dog on a leash to get your heart pumping, too.
Dog Yoga – Don’t call us crazy. Dog yoga is a real thing. “Doga”, as they call it, can be a great way for your dog to stretch and de-stress.
Suck it up! – Bundle up and get outside! It might be chilly at first, but trust us, a brisk pace will feel great in the colder temperatures.

With the recent jerky treat scare , we thought it would be a great idea to share some recipes for homemade dog treats.
When you make your own treats for your dog you control the ingredients and can avoid any concern of byproducts or fillers. Homemade dog treats also offer a great way to experiment with new flavors. Does your dog love peanut butter or apples? Experiment a little and add them to a recipe! Controlling the recipe also allows you to omit any ingredients that your dog may be allergic to.
Here are a few Internet-approved homemade dog treat recipes that we came across:
