Most of the country is suffering from the abysmal cold. It's difficult to stay outside with your dog long enough to accomplish even the briefest of bathroom breaks, let alone play games outside. SDU thinks you'll like this list of ideas to help you keep your dog active indoors, where you'll both be warm and toasty. And in the spirit of living a greener life, many of these ideas call for things that are in your trash or recycle bin already. So they're not only green, but they're also inexpensive!
Here's what I came up with today, with an empty McDonald's drink cup, a paper lunch sack, and a rawhide.
Start with an empty paper soda cup.
Then grab a rawhide, stuffed food toy, or anything your dog likes (that's safe for him to have, of course).
Put the rawhide in a paper lunch sack.
Wrap the bag up tightly around the rawhide.
Put the rawhide inside and put the lid on the cup.
Put the cup on the floor for the dog.
Sit back and watch the dog enjoy opening the cup, shredding the paper bag, and finding the rawhide inside!
