K9 Kamp: Just One Dog Minute To Win It
Kita's got her game face on and is ready to finish K9 Kamp strong!! This week was a good week for us. We went to the park again on Sunday and let her run around and burn some energy off and she loved it! We came back warm, relaxed, and refreshed.
But what activities could we do all throughout the week to keep us moving and active? As I surveyed the house, I noticed our staircase. Kita loves being nosey and seeing what everyone is up to, especially if they go upstairs. Even if I just want to go to the bathroom she is patiently waiting upstairs for me. So play on the stairs we will.
We decided to lightly jog up and down the stairs about ten times a day for five days (Kita was out of commission the last two days due to anesthesia from her dental cleaning). She hustled up the stairs, but naturally going down was a bit slower since she can't see. But she definitely knows how high the stairs are and makes it up them like a pro. We decided the first day ten was a good amount of times because after the tenth time, I couldn't coax her back up the stairs one more time. She just plopped down on the little landing in between the stairs. Still, moving for a while is better than not moving at all.
