The most simple way to keep your pet engaged in the winter is by going on a daily walk. If you're used to taking your dog on a run, be aware of icy surfaces and keep it short to avoid any injury.  

⛷ Take Your Pup Skiing

If you have an active breed and love the outdoors, consider taking your pet skiing. Dog skiing, also know as skijoring, is a popular winter dog sport and enjoyed by many pet parents. It's a fun way to stay active in the winter and shred the slopes with your pup by your side!

🛷 Heading out to Sled With the Family? Take your Dog with You!

While it's not recommended to let your dog ride on the sled, it's perfectly safe to let your dog run off leash and chase you while you slide down the hill.

Lastly, you can simply enjoy the cold weather with your pup by playing with them in the snow. Dogs love to go outside, run around and even dig in the fresh powder, it's a great way to let them explore and have fun in the winter months!
