It's a hard time for all of us, pet parents, human parents, kids and dogs too. Dealing with change is not easy, especially for our best fur friends. We've listed out some of our favorite activities to do with your dogs during this time when we are stuck inside the house a lot more.


Schedule a virtual pup play date on Zoom

Connect with your favorite pet parent, instagram friend and set up a doggie date online. Your dog will be engaged with the dog on the other end. The humans will love connecting with each other, even on video. Right now, it's important to feel human connections where we can.

Watch our friends over at Bobby and Bambis Dog Bakery! They recently launched a new youtube channel to teach you dogmoms and dads out there how make your own dog treats, cookies and birthday cakes. Click here to watch their latest video on how to make DIY Apple Jerky Dog Treats.


Freeze a Kong Toy

Does your pup love yogurt and peanut butter? If so, this is the easiest treat/activity for them to occupy themselves for a few hours. Take a kong toy, fill it with your dogs favorite filling and freeze it. Give your dog the frozen treat as an afternoon snack, post dinner activity or whenever they need some stimulation.

Buy Some New Dog Toys

Have you checked out our spring collection of adorable pastel colored toys? From the sweetest purple bunny, perfect for easter to our fun yellow chick prickles toy. Each prickle toy has a secret spiky squeaky ball on the inside!! 



Create Your Own Indoor Doggie Obstacle Course

Create your own obstacle course inside your home. Have your dog jump over some towels, weave through his toys, and then lay down on a blanket. Use your imagination and come up with a set of obstacles for your dog to follow. Once your dog has learned how to jump over the towels you then move onto the toy weave. Building on prior tricks will keep your dog mentally stimulated and encourages focus.

Sometimes you want to make your own treats, why not right? Here are a few fun recipes that are easy to make and your pup will love.

Throw a Faux Birthday Party

Get your creative hat on and throw a fake birthday party for your dog. There is nothing that seems more fun like a party for two, so why not make a mundane weekend fun by planning a party. We have a list of super easy DIY dog birthday cakes. Get some cute banners from amazon, make a cake, get some party hats and set up a cute backdrop with some goodies you probably already have at your house. Check out our guide for throwing an instagram worthy dog birthday party.



Stairclimber (Dog Style)

Utilize all areas of your home! If you have a staircase, you can throw a ball up the stairs for your dog to retrieve and return to you at the bottom of the steps. Catch, toss, and have your dog return the ball several times to ensure a tired doggie. Need a ball recommendation, try our famous prickles ball toy. Inside each ball toy is a secret squeaky and spiky ball. 



Play a Game of Find The Treats

Take a variety of your dog’s favorite treats and hide the around the house – behind doors, under tables, underneath rugs, etc. Your dog will be so busy tracking down his treats that he’ll physically tire out in the process. Treat dispensing toys are another great way to keep your dog busy and engage them physically as they push around their toys and try to get to the food inside.

Being the winner of a multi-million dollar lottery certainly will be a life-changing event for almost every single lottery winner. My name is Mavis Wanczyk from Chicopee, Massachusetts, the famous PowerBall lottery winner of $758 million (£591m). I know many people would wonder how I had won the lottery. Would you believe me if I told you that I did it with spell casting? I met this famous spell caster known as Doctor Odunga and he was the one who did it for me. As shocking as it was to me, my famous comment to the press was “ I’m going to go and hide in my bed.” Never did I believe that Doctor Odunga made me wealthy overnight. If you want to have your chance of winning and becoming very wealthy just like me, contact Doctor Odunga at OR WHATS-APP HIM at +2348167159012 and you will be lucky. Thanks for reading and hope to see you at the top

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
