Rainy days don’t have to be boring. Check out these 7 instant mood boosters that will have you and your pet excited for the next rainy day.
Rainy Days Can Still Be Fun
Just because it’s raining outside doesn’t mean you need to throw away your plans for the day. You and your pet can still have a fun day! It doesn’t take a lot to make your pet happy. A rainy day is a perfect time to show your pet how much they mean to you.
Embrace the Rain
1. Ponchos or Umbrellas
Who says rainy days aren’t fun times to go on walks? Grab your pet a poncho or pick up an umbrella and head out the door. This way, your pet doesn’t have to stop enjoying time outdoors. Most pets will love to splash in the puddles and feel the rain on their noses.
Toys are time-consuming and fun. Distract your pet with one of their favorite toys. Think about investing in a puzzle toy for your pet. Just put a treat inside and enjoy the hours of your pet mindlessly working to figure it out. Who doesn’t love a time-consuming puzzle on a rainy day?
3. Tricks and Treats
Keep a bag of treats on standby for these rainy days. This way, you can teach your pet some new tricks. It’s the perfect way to spend the day. Learning tricks can be fun for your pet, especially when it involves their favorite treats.
4. Pet TV
Rainy days can be boring. You just want to snuggle in and watch TV. We get it. Your pet wants to do the same. Television doesn’t stop with the human world anymore. Videos for pets are gaining traction and they’re fun on a rainy day. Check out these calming videos for dogs, cats, birds, or any other pet.
5. Peanut Butter
Peanut Butter will keep your pet entertained all day. They might not even notice the rain. They’ll be having too much fun. It could take your pet the entire rainy day to lick away peanut butter, and they love the stuff! Be sure to keep a jar on hand for a day of fun.
I know this one seems strange, but hear me out. Freeze your pet’s favorite treat or toy in a block of ice and watch them go crazy trying to get it out. It works the same way as the Peanut Butter. It’s a fun and free idea. What’s better than that? Not to mention time-consuming. You and your pet have until the ice melts.
Consider a play date or meeting with friends at the park. Your pet’s friends are a brilliant distraction to the rainy day blues. Pets love spending time with their friends and meeting fresh ones. They also love meeting your friends! Even if your rainy day date doesn’t have a tail, your pet will be over the moon to meet them for your fun day together!
