So, what do you do when it's pouring out, and your dog needs some exercise? I know, the answer is "take him for a walk anyway..." which makes total sense! Except Kirby hates the rain more than I do. It's true! He begs to go out, and then he squishes his body up against the house, so he fits under our tiny awning. I can coax him to play fetch for maybe 5 or 6 throws, but by then he's done.
I guess I should have anticipated this? We live in Eugene, OR... it's not the sunniest city. Stan and I are used to the rain- I don't even think we own an umbrella- but It's as though Kirby came from sunny SoCal or something. (He didn't, his mama is in Washington)
So, what do you do? We can play indoor catch/fetch... we do lots of obedience stuff.... but we don't really have an indoor doggy playplace nearby. Ideas? I'm not a huge fan of clothes on dogs, but has anyone had any luck with raincoats? I know a tired pup is a good pup- and we need a tired pup around here!
