Holiday Gifts & Fun for Dogs
With the holiday gift season coming up, we want to give away a $100 VISA gift card and some Bullwrinkles and/or Barnsdale Farms Treats.
I started thinking about how I would spend the $100 (I am not eligible to win my own Holiday Gifts Contest of course, but I like daydreaming):
Agility and “Pupilates” Equipment
Kilo has started agility lessons at a local indoor facility and loves them. He is not keen on going outside in cold, rain or snow so I need to find ways to exercise his mind and body through winter. I had major equipment envy when I saw Diane and Rocco Havanese doing agility and working out indoors at Barkworld – watch the cute video. Rocco looks so happy.
Linzy and Remi from our Rescues Rock episode also have similar very handy portable Weave and Jump sets.
Slimdoggy Steve and Jack seem to use lots of wonderful workout equipment.
We looked online and I could actually buy some equipment with $100 then use the treats to train Kilo at home. He is currently using cushions and chairs to practise.
Dog Toys and Games
Toy Story 4 is in the news which made us think that Kilo the Pug would also enjoy some more toys and games. He really relaxes when he sucks and chews on his soft toys, and he has so much fun getting kibble our of his ball, his chewy bone and his rope and cup toy. Of course his favourite toys of the moment are my daughter’s empty plastic water bottles. The crackling noise delights him and he can throw them up and catch them and carry them around easily.
He will chase all his toys endlessly back and forth across the house, then stash them in his crate like a pirate. He can not quite grasp the retrieving and bringing to me concept yet unfortunately, but he does occupy himself and get great exercise.
How would you spend the $100 if you win the Holiday Gift Contest? What’s on your holiday wishlist and how will you keep your dog fit burning calories over the holidays?
