Keep your pets entertained this winter

The coldest days of winter are definitely upon us, and RCHS would like to offer some tips on how to keep your pets from going stir crazy while they are cooped up inside this winter. Make sure to keep your furry friend mentally stimulated. Puzzle toys are a good way to keep them busy physically and mentally. You can also teach them new tricks or practice training. Interactive toy treats are an easy way to keep them occupied and also give you some quiet time. There’s nothing like freezing peanut butter in a Kong to save the day for your dog. For a longer-term solution, you can also hide treats and toys around the house for a fun scavenger hunt game. Put ping-pong balls in the bathtub for your cat to bat around. If you’re getting a little bored yourself, a game of tug, hide and seek, or even chasing a Slinky down the stairs (if they are safe) are some ways to spend some quality time with your pup. Cats love companionship as well, consider adding a feline friend to your family.
