- If rain or snow is keeping you inside, carve out time for some indoor exercise. Playing games will help keep a dog active. Here is a simple, yet fun game to play with a Chihuahua inside that will help toward meeting his or her daily exercise needs.
How to play:
Take a unique toy and hide it in an easy spot to find. Encourage your Chihuahua to find it, leading him to the area if need be (until he begins to understand the idea of the game). When he does, reward with lots of excited praise.
Then, hide the toy in a location that is a bit harder to find. Again, show excitement when your dog is looking for it. Give lots of encouraging praise.
You can keep making this game more difficult until it takes a moderate amount of time for your Chihuahua to find the toy and the final reward can be a healthy dog treat.
