Rainy Day Activities for your Senior Dog

The joy of being a dog has no age limit. Whether they are 4 or 10 years old - they love to play, it's just up to us to decide what type of play is best suited for their individual needs.

This summer we have had our fair share of rainy days and although Miley, our 10 yr old senior Golden loves to be out in the rain, we've had to come up with some fun ways to keep her happy indoors. Today I thought I would share how we keep her active and engaged both physically and mentally on those rainy days.
This post is sponsored by Chicken Soup Pets. I am being compensated to help share Chicken Soup for the Soul dog food but we only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Chicken Soup Pets is not responsible for the content of this article.

Muffin Tin Game
Take a muffin tin and hide some treats under a few tennis balls and let the fun begin! When I first did this, I thought for sure Miley would just take a ball and run but she actually enjoyed sniffing out the treats and left the balls alone. 

A game of tug of war will depend on your dogs physical and activity level. Miley acts like a puppy when she sees a tug toy so she is all in with this old school game.
Dog Puzzles
We were introduced to dog puzzles a few years ago, they are a great interactive tool for any dog of any age. Just hide some treats in the puzzle and watch your pup entertain themselves. This is one of Miley's favorites!
Meal Time Fun
We like to keep meal time for Miley fun as well. For the past few months we have been feeding her Chicken Soup for the Soul grain-free dog food and she LOVES it! She has never been the kind of dog that wakes you up in the morning and can't wait to eat, but she enjoys this food and is doing so well on it. Her skin, fur and ears have never looked better since we eliminated grain from her diet.
Changing up mealtime with a slow feeder is a great way to encourage enrichment for your senior dog. What is usually a routine part of their day can be turned into a fun brainteaser that will slow down mealtime and satisfy your dog's hunting ability in a new and fun way!
Chicken Soup for the Soul is made with love in the USA and developed by a family-owned and operated company. They use whole ingredients only with protein at the top of the list and no by-product meals. Just as important, there is no corn, wheat or soy and contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

Visit to learn more about their food, they also have a great selection of treats that would be perfect for any of these activities.
