Most dogs enjoy nothing more than a daily walk with their owner. However, individual preferences need to be taken into account, as well as the breed and age of the dog. Whilst some elderly dogs love their walks, no matter what the weather is, others may feel the cold more, and some hate traipsing around in wet puddles, especially those with shorter legs !! Owners simply need to use their common sense. If your dog dislikes bad weather, then rather than dragging them out for a walk, stay at home and play some games in the dry and warm. Mental stimulation is just as important as physical exercise. There are many toys and puzzle games easily available, as well as a number of books with ideas for homemade activities for you both to enjoy together. Rainy days are also ideal for a bit of indoor training.
