As we begin to step out more—missing our fuzzy buddies—we’re both getting used to a fresh rhythm. The last thing we need on our plate while juggling tasks is stressing about our pets being restless. So, it’s a must to jazz up their day when they’re ruling the roost.

You get the drill for solo pet time: Feed ’em, walk the doggo beforehand, and ditch anything they might get tangled with.

Dive in for some top-notch toy suggestions, cool games, and savvy tricks to keep your dog or kitty jazzed up solo. Wanna peek at them while you’re out? Set up a Google Nest Cam. With its nifty alerts, you can see your pet loving their new goodies anytime, anywhere.

Find their cozy corner

Let’s start simple: Set your dog or cat up in their fave hangout—somewhere they’re chill and won’t turn into little mischief-makers (the kitchen’s a no-go, okay?). For dogs? Maybe rope off the living room, where their toy stash and snuggle bed are. Cats? Think windowsill spots or a toasty bed to curl up in.

Freeze a treat-filled toy

Toy-stuffers are a big win for busy pets. For dogs, jam a rubber toy with peanut butter or their fave snack, then pop it in the freezer. Cats? Get a toy they can bat around that spills out treats. It’s like a fun puzzle!

Tune in to pet-friendly channels

Here’s a shocker: There’s TV, YouTube, and radio just for pets! Flip on DOGTV for your pup—calming shows to keep their tails wagging. And for kitties? Loads of YouTube channels with birds and fun scenes they’ll paw-sitively love.

Birdwatch from home

Want to get your cat’s attention? Hook up a window bird feeder. It’s like Catflix! The birds munch, and your kitty gets a front-row seat to the show. Easy-peasy and super entertaining! Mix up the fun toys

Puzzle toys are like brain teasers for your pet. They reward your dog or cat when they solve ’em. They keep their minds sharp and chase away that pesky boredom (you know, when they start tearing things up). Check out wiggly toys for dogs or treat mazes for cats. It’s all about the fun hunt!

Toss down a snuffle mat or scratch pad

 

Ever seen a snuffle mat? They’re super cute and dogs love ’em! Choose one with fun designs (like sunny flowers) and sprinkle treats in it. Watch your dog sniff ’em out! Cats? Give them a scratch pad that’s also a comfy bed. Bonus: it keeps their claws off your sofa!

Sprinkle some catnip

 

 

Got catnip? Sprinkle it on cat beds or hidden spots. Your kitty will find it, go wild, and then nap like a champ. Pro tip: Hide some catnip toys and bring ’em out just before you head out. Keeps things fresh and fun!

Bring on the chase

 

Does your pet love a good chase? Get a toy that moves on its own. For your cat, a toy that randomly
