Rainy Day Activities for Your Senior Dog

By Kristy @mileydailyscoop
The joy of being a dog has no age limit. Whether they are 4 or 10 years old - they love to play, it's just up to us to decide what type of play is best suited for their individual needs.
This summer we have had our fair share of rainy days and although Miley, our 10 yr old senior Golden loves to be out in the rain, we've had to come up with some fun ways to keep her happy indoors. Today I thought I would share how we keep her active and engaged both physically and mentally on those rainy days.

Muffin Tin Game Rainy Day Activities for your Senior Dog Take a muffin tin and hide some treats under a few tennis balls and let the fun begin! When I first did this, I thought for sure Miley would just take a ball and run but she actually enjoyed sniffing out the treats and left the balls alone.  Rainy Day Activities for your Senior Dog
Tug-of-War Rainy Day Activities for your Senior Dog A game of tug of war will depend on your dogs physical and activity level. Miley acts like a puppy when she sees a tug toy so she is all in with this old school game. Rainy Day Activities for your Senior Dog Dog Puzzles Rainy Day Activities for your Senior Dog We were introduced to dog puzzles a few years ago, they are a great interactive tool for any dog of any age. Just hide some treats in the puzzle and watch your pup entertain themselves. This is one of Miley's favorites! Rainy Day Activities for your Senior Dog Meal Time Fun Rainy Day Activities for your Senior Dog We like to keep meal time for Miley fun as well. For the past few months we have been feeding her Chicken Soup for the Soul grain-free dog food and she LOVES it! She has never been the kind of dog that wakes you up in the morning and can't wait to eat, but she enjoys this food and is doing so well on it. Her skin, fur and ears have never looked better since we eliminated grain from her diet. Rainy Day Activities for your Senior Dog Changing up mealtime with a slow feeder is a great way to encourage enrichment for your senior dog. What is usually a routine part of their day can be turned into a fun brainteaser that will slow down mealtime and satisfy your dog's hunting ability in a new and fun way!

They use whole ingredients only with protein at the top of the list and no by-product meals.
