To keep your four-legged best friend from getting cabin fever, we’ve got five tips and games to entertain your pet.  

Walk a different way 

Exercise is so important so keep things interesting by changing the sights and smells on your walks by picking different routes each time.  

Put your toilet rolls to use with a treat dispenser game

Do you have paper rolls lying around? Fold one end, place a treat inside, then fold the top over and seal both ends with peanut butter.  Your dog will delight in licking and nudging the rolls to get to the treats inside.  

Rotate their toys  

Break up the boredom by making sure your cat or dog has different toys to play with and rotate them to bring some variety to their days.

Give the muffin tin game a go

A game perfect for dogs young and old, simply cut the treats into small pieces and place them at the bottom of the muffin cups. Then hide the treats by putting the tennis balls on top of each cup and place the entire tin on the floor.  

Get your chef hat on and make some treats
