Are you looking forward to unwinding with your best friend over the holidays? It's a great time to reconnect with your fur baby and spend some quality time together recharging. Spending time in the brisk outdoors getting fresh air can be invigorating and great for your whole family's mental health! After the hectic shopping, visiting and eating is over, taking some quiet time to decompress can be just what you all need.
Looking for some ideas on what to do? It's a great time to check out the trails or parks in your area that you haven't had a chance to explore yet.
The OSPCA has some great ideas, from baking pup treats to building a snowman! They also have a list of outdoor places in Ontario visit with your pup.
Or check with your city to find out if there any offleash parks near you: The City of Toronto, for example, lists all of them on their website.
Ever heard of skijoring? It's an outdoor activity where skiers propel themselves forward with some help from their canine friends. The Sports Lab has courses starting just after the holidays (between January 7 to March 11, 2018), and you can either bring your dog, or do the course with of theirs.
Of course, there's no reason why you can't just cuddle up with your favourite pupper or cat and relax at home. You can get one more wear out of your ugly Christmas sweater. And nothing says the holidays like binge watching the latest Netflix production!
