Do Tell: What Are Your Favorite Indoor Games?

When the weather outside is frightful, your outdoorsy pups may prefer being homebodies instead of adventurers. As nice as it is to stay snuggled up inside, this may then cause pets to pent up steam . . . and get into more mischief out of boredom.

Since my little diva (divo?) hates the cold and yucky weather, he prefers playing fetch indoors rather than at the dog park. But we could definitely switch it up this Winter. Spread the love and share your favorite indoor activity ideas for dogs and cats in the comments below.

Afghans remind me of muppets for some strange reason.

LOL..the Afghan Hound looks just like my Hugo, when he is waiting for me to get ready to go on a walk with him :) My dogs don't play indoors. They always sleep. But when we go outside, the games begin :D

Delilah likes to play "pickle" with her daddy and me. We sit on either side of the room and roll/toss her ball back and forth while she runs to chase it. She likes it so much that if only one of us sits down to play toss with her, she's not very interested!

Logan and I play tag around the bottom floor of the house (it's an open floor plan, so it makes for a good "playground")! We also play tug and fetch.

One of my dogs looves to play hide and seek too. I hide in various places and she comes to find me ... the best part is when she figures out the main hiding areas and I surprise her while she's trying to check it out. She goes bananas!! My other chi is pretty content to just hang out and be cuddled.

my dog loves to play hide and seek and run after the tennis ball. my cats love to play string and could probably play all day if I had the time!!!

Nox is strictly an indoor cat. But I have this squeaky mouse that hangs over the door. I'll take it down right before bed so she can get her energy spurts out and then I hang it back up right before I crawl in bed. She sleeps like a baby and so do I.

Zena loves to be thrown her squeaky toys and then I have to retrieve it from her by playing tug.

We only have two units per floor in our building, so around 11pm at night we open the door for Enzo to sprint his energy out for like 10 minutes. Best trick to get him to fall sound asleep!

I'm lucky enough to have a really long open space where I can throw a ball from my couch in my family room to my living room...I also have that tree log/squirrel thing...the boys like that too:)

My lab loves to play with puzzle games. He currently has a plush tree log that's home to three furry squirrels. He can spend hours trying to get them out. We also got him a cube that stores treats. It's too big for him to bite, so he has to figure out how to tip it over before he can get his treats.
