Go for a long walk.

Pets love a chance to get in touch with the great outdoors. Going for a long walk in the winter sun is a great way to bond with your pet. Bring some treats, stop at the park for a game of fetch, and stop to smell the roses. If you've never taken your cat for a walk, maybe now is the time to see if they would enjoy it! Not all cats will like being walked on a leash, but those who do will love you all the more for it.[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="380"]


Play together!

Bring out the toys! Pets love to fetch, tug of war, chase, and all kinds of games. Dedicate a half hour to play. Your pet will be mentally stimulated and the both of you will have a great time![caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="220"]


Give them a massage.

Who doesn't love a good massage? Give the pup a belly rub, scratch the cat behind the ears, any and every pet will love the one on one attention of a massage. They'll feel relaxed and may even drift off to sleep on the couch![caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="250"]


Give them some healthy treats.

If we know one thing for sure, it's that pets love to eat! Unless your pet is on a restricted diet for their health, a little treat is an excellent way to show them some love. Make sure the treats you give are appropriate for your pet's species, size, and dietary needs.[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="480"]


If your pet loves baths, fill up the tub!

Not all pets hate the water! Some love it and would kill for some extra time in the bath. Baths are a great time to give your pet some good scratches and a rubdown. Just be careful not to get too wet![caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="400"]


Spend some time training.

Cat, dog, hamster, and fish: all pets can be trained! Training is a great way to give your pets some mental exercise. You can even teach them to do useful tasks like opening doors or using a human toilet. Betta fish can be taught to flare their gills, jump, and much more. Training will help get rid of excess energy that leads to destructive behavior like chewing and scratching furniture.[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="400"]
