Hurricane Harvey and a hyper dog who hates wet grass and rain

So Hurricane Harvey has been making headlines all throughout southeast Texas, while I am not one of those dealing with the worst of the storm, I an definitely dealing with the annoying aspects of it.

Rain, rain, and more rain. It doesn't stop, it just keeps on going. And here I am with a hyper dog, in an apartment who doesn't like rain or walking on wet grass. He just had his first bathroom incident in 3 months. He got hit with the zoomies and was immediately ended by him doing a number 2 on the carpet.

I've been trying to walk him up and down stairs, but it doesn't seem to be enough. What are some suggestions?

Teach him to do something new that would challenge him. Like up and off, up on the couch off the couch, beds or what ever you want to do. You could lay a food track in the wet grass, bet he would mind the wet grass less. Nose game with boxes. Hide his next meal all over the house. Teach names of his toys. Should help tucker him out. Stay safe and Good Luck!

I am FB friends with one of our Texas members who was just flooded out of her house. She has dogs and a horse. Somehow, she is managing to keep her sense of humor.

Be thankful, you are only dealing with the 'annoying' aspects of it. Play with your dog inside the house. Do obedience. Play games. Drain him mentally.
