Activities for Dogs & Cats

Oct 5, 2018

Activities for pets provide meaningful exercise and play. Staying active keeps your pet’s mind sharp and the body fit. Regular exercise and active play is essential throughout the year. Don’t let the cooler weather and shorter days decrease the amount of healthy activity your pet receives.

The benefits of being active include:

  • Weight control
  • Digestive health
  • Restful sleep
  • Being limber and agile
  • Mental stimulation
  • Positive behaviors

Keeping your dog or cat active can also benefit your wallet. Prevention of diseases through proper exercise and nutrition could result in savings over the lifetime veterinary care of your pet.

Providing your dog or cat with appropriate levels of exercise and play doesn’t have to take a lot of time. Spending just a few active moments together every day is beneficial.

  • Daily (leash) walks around the neighborhood or the park
  • Nature walks or hiking trails are a great way to explore together—don’t forget to take enough water for you both and delicious snacks!
  • Pull toys work the muscles
  • Fetch or chase added after a potty break is rewarding and fun
  • Hide-N-Seek makes your dog work for treats
  • Social play with other dogs at a daycare program or dog park provides free play
  • Cat toys and a tree with a scratching post keep kitty jumping and running, and even a box or window perch will encourage your cat to explore and provide enrichment

There’s no reason your pet’s fun and exercise should stop while staying at a lodging facility. Research from the pet industry has clearly demonstrated that the more activity and human interaction pets receive, the happier and healthier they are when away from home. Finding a lodging facility that offers a variety of activities during your pet’s stay will ensure you and your pet have a positive experience.
