Plan A Trip

But you don’t have to go beyond your city borders to take an exploration trip with your pet. I’m sure your city may have a few hidden spots that can be a good change of scenery for you and your pet. Just make sure that you are taking all the precautions before heading out. Carry a sanitizer, wear a mask, pack up a water bottle for your pet, carry their leash and keep away from crowds. Also, consult your local authorities about the level of infection in your area before anything else.
But once the COVID-19 pandemic eases down, you have to take your pet on a trip. If your dog is an emotional support dog, you can even take them with you in the airplane cabin.It can be a new experience for you and your furry friend.
I think we all can agree that pets make for an extremely photogenic model. So when you decide to spend time with your pet, find some interesting locations for stills and take your pet for its first photoshoot.

And with all those pictures, you will be doing everyone else a favor. Because no one ever gets bored with the stills of your pets.

Involve Them In Your Daily Chores
When you own a house, it’s important to keep up with the daily chores. So instead of turning it into a boring experience, make it fun by involving your pet.
While cooking, let your dog help you fetch a few things. Or when you are landscaping your outdoors, employ the abilities of your dog. They can help you dig soil for new plants and flowers and carry the wood for a new fire pit. You may even get to see the fun side of your pet when they start jumping through the pile of leaves or barking at a wasp near the flowers. So just involve them in your chores so they can feel happy about getting your attention.
Pets need their optimum physical exercise daily and so do you. So why not do it together? There are dozens of workouts that you can do with your dog. Like take them on a jog with you. Or plan a cardio circuit that you can do with your pet. Pet owners also love doing doggy pushups. These are just regular pushups with a dog on your back. But do it only if you have a small dog or you’ll not be able to get up from the ground.
With your feline friends you can try cat yoga or get them a piñata to work their paws.
Now you have 5 things that you must try with your pet. So take your much needed break from work today and enjoy the time with your pet.
