As coronavirus pandemic is spreading and we are all practicing social distancing now, how to not feel bored being at home? To help you out, here are our top 5 ideas.

1. Do doga with your pup

Keeping your immune system strong is one of the best way to keep yourself from virus infection. Yoga can be done indoor, and when doing it with pups, you get more endorphins from laughing. Here are the 8 doga poses for beginners you could try, or watch the below clip to start your inner yogi mood going (I have to say, the Border Collie in this clip is remarkable!)

Word of caution from dogs: Please keep your expectation low, people! This Border Collie is obviously intensively trained for a long time.

4. Clean your apartment and wash your dog’s stuff

There’s no better time to clean those bits you often procrastinate to do. The bathroom sink and wall tiles, the top of your cupboard and wardrobe, your pet’s bed, toys, leashes, the drawer that holds his stuff. After all those washing and cleaning, why not reorganise your cabinets too? Your dog would thank you for it! 人寵在家的自娛妙法

5. Snuggle and catch up on sleep

Most dogs love you around and have no concept of personal space or social distancing. They crave for your attention and cuddles. While you can catch up on some sleep you may lack during hectic work schedule, it wouldn’t hurt snuggling with your sleepy dog.
