It’s never a dull day when we have our furry friends at home with us. But sometimes, throwing the ball over and over, or cat napping together, can feel a little repetitive. It can be hard to come up with some new activities, especially when all the creative input your pet can provide is a woof or meow. We’ve put our heads together to come up with some ideas for you and your four-legged pal to have a great time in your home, in and around the Whitney Ranch community.
Set up a scavenger hunt
Set your pet off on a mission to find some yummy treats you’ve hidden. Your spacious home in Whitney Ranch is perfect for finding clever spots to keep your pet on the hunt. Before you bust out the bag of treats, here’s a helpful tip—make sure your pet is busy playing, napping, or chewing on a bone in the other room while you’re setting up their little activity. The last thing you want is to have your pal follow you around while you try to hide all their goodies. Now all you need to do is start looking for the best places around your home that will have your pets excitedly following their nose.
Play with your pet — there’s an app for that
Did you know that there are a host of phone and tablet apps that are designed to entertain your cat? The app Cat Fishing 2 has little, digital fish that are designed to catch your cat’s attention by swimming across the screen. There is also the app Paint For Cats, which lets your kitten express their artistic talents. Many of these apps are completely free for iOS and Android and take minimal effort to set up, so it’s easy to give your feline a day of gaming.
Trek through the great outdoors
At Whitney Ranch, you have the option of taking your pet on a pleasant walk around the neighborhood, or going on an all-day adventure through the community’s miles of winding trails. There are always plenty of new sights and smells for your dog to enjoy while strolling around these scenic paths. While you two are out and about, we recommend bringing along a doggy water bottle to help keep your pooch happy and hydrated.
Try out a puppuccino
If you haven’t already seen the plentiful Instagram posts about this item, then we’ll give you the inside scoop on this secret, canine-friendly item at Starbucks. While you are ordering your favorite drink, ask the cashier if you can also have a puppuccino. Don’t worry, there isn’t any coffee in this free addition to your order. This small cup of whipped cream for your pup to lap up is the perfect way for you two to enjoy a tasty treat together. Since there are plenty of Starbucks locations in the area surrounding Whitney Ranch, your dogs won’t have trouble getting their paws on their very own puppuccino.
