There are plenty of fun indoor activities you and your dog can do together when it's wet outside. From playing a game of fetch in the hallway to constructing an agility course in the living room, the only limitation is your imagination.

This can take the form of teaching your dog a new trick, giving him an interactive toy or visiting someplace new together.
