A great rainy day activity for dogs is to work on loose leash walking with obstacles. This activity can help improve your dog’s leash manners and provide mental stimulation while being indoors.

Here’s how to set up the activity:

  1. Clear a space in your home where you can set up obstacles. You can use everyday objects like chairs, broomsticks, or boxes to create a course.
  2. Start with your dog on a leash and walk them through the course. Encourage them to stay focused on you and the task at hand.
  3. Reward your dog with treats or praise when they complete the course without pulling on the leash or getting distracted.
  4. Repeat the course several times, gradually increasing the difficulty by adding more obstacles or making the course longer.
  5. As your dog gets better at navigating the obstacles, try walking them through the course without a leash. If your dog starts to pull or get distracted, go back to using the leash and work on the course again.

Remember to keep the training sessions short and fun, and always end on a positive note. With consistent practice, your dog will become a pro at loose leash walking and navigating obstacles, even on a rainy day!
