    Default Meanwhile in Wisconsin...

    Any one have any advice/tips/suggestions on what I can do to keep Brynn occupied and less bored? It is like -50 outside here in Wisconsin, and this lovely polar vortex thing we have going on is starting to set in with lots of boredum… a bully can only sleep so much. Anything you guys do that keeps them entertained? Brynn won't even go into the yard to pee anymore…. she refuses to walk off the deck… thankfully there is snow there so I can push shovel it all off my deck, lol. So ready for summer time!

    Default Meanwhile in Wisconsin….

    Stag bars are brilliant - pretty much indestructible chews, just 100% deer antler.
    The Kong Wobblers are great too - requires the dog to bat them with their paws .Normal kongs are great time killer too -reduce food intake if you planning to fill them up
    We also play fetch with girls favourite balls as well as "find" -by hiding smelly treats around the house .Also, plastic bottles -without tops (providing the dog isn't a big chewer is supervised ) give my girls hours of fun

    when the weather is yucky we go to pet friendly stores! We'll do a few laps around Home Depot and and a few laps around petsmart!! He gets to walk, lots of attention, and some treats!! Needless to say he likes those days, feels like quite a hunk!!

    That is such a great idea!!! I've been wondering how to wear Ruthie out lately cause it's cold here too and we can't get outside for our walk. And she loves car rides!

    We like to play "hide and go seek" in the house w/the dogs… usually this involves two people, one to hold the dog and the other to hide!!! It's actually a lot of fun because of course it only takes the doggies a minute to find us… LOL Usually the kids are giggling so it makes it easier…

    in that case some other stores around here that are pet friendly, so you can ask about store policy in your area include Bed Bath and Beyond, Micheal's craft stores, Lowes, and 5below! Yes, I take my dog just about everywhere! but he's better behaived than most children in the stores, and I ask very politely, many stores don't mind at all!!good luck!

    As Pati suggested, Kong wobble, use it for meals... Works great. And, marrow bones or suture peanut butter frozen bones... Lots of energy burned with those

    Wow! I never even knew you could take your dogs to Home Depot, Bed Bath and Beyond, or anywhere like that. I take Brynn to Pet World, Mounds or where ever we go, but Home Depot and what not is much bigger. I will have to ask our local store about that! She is also extremely calm and behaved better than kids so wouldn't be an issue I would think. I do take her on rides, but she looks bored with that too. I will go pick up some of the toys/bones you all mentioned - I have a treat ball she pushes around too, but with out the exercise I feel like she really is just eating more, lol.

    I am impatiently waiting for spring… even if it means mud puddles and a dirty bulldog. I can't take much more snow/bitter cold! Lol.

    Thanks everyone!

    I feel really bad for you guys in Wisconsin… we have -9 this morning, but what is Wisconsin now at -50?!! We lived in Alaska years ago, and the coldest we ever saw was -71… it was SO damn cold the inside of our car had an inch layer of ice on the floorboards!!! We had to keep it plugged in overnight so the engine would start up… SMH

    Today I think they mentioned it could get up to -50, but things change so quickly! Everything is closed around here though! Brynn and I are being lazy today lol! My cousin actually lives in Alaska and was saying it was 50 there yesterday - not fair what so ever! I could not even imagine -71 that's just insane!!! I couldn't even imagine that…. I miss my flip flops!
