OK-- BW

What do (you) do to keep your boxer busy, fit and energy released? Especially in the winter months.

That's easy!
We get bundled up and go about our daily walks! :D

Squirrels are just as fun in the winter!

Plus, he helps me do the chores (I was going to vacuum, he was folding laundry)

We go out even when it's REALLY cold (-40F I think, in this shot. Or maybe -45F. I cant remember. That's temp, not windchill).

And it all makes for a wonderfully tired out pup.

Let's see. Today was Frisbee in the yard--while the storm dumped another 8 inches on us. Then hide and search in the yard--for hidden tennis balls.
Later we rotated the toys in the toy bin--lots of "Hey! We remember this toy!" moments.
Then a game of 3-way tug in the living room--my shoulder is shot.
Now they're sacked out in front of the fireplace.
Tomorrow I hope to go snowshoeing (3 mile loop) with the two boxers and I'll probably bring the little rattie along with me when I go to the hardware store--his feet get too cold in the snow and I don't want to have to pack him out.

Winter Exercise

I find it very difficult to exercise my 1.5 year old boxer in the Winter. He hates the snow and cold & this year is exceptionally snowy. We go for walks when we can, but mostly play fetch in the house. I also create a little agility course with the ottoman and some of the furniture. We can't wait until spring.
