    How to exercise your dog indoors

    Dogs need their daily exercise, and even things like it being too cold or hot outside or the days getting shorter shouldn’t get in the way. One of the most important parts of Cesar’s teachings is that you need to walk your dog every day, several times a day no matter what the weather is like.

    However, if you absolutely cannot take your dog out because it’s unsafe, here are some tips on how to work out your dog’s body and mind indoors. Remember, though, that our dogs need limitations, meaning that you control when and for how long they engage in indoor play. Substituting other activities for the walk for too long and too often may lead to your dog developing unhealthy obsessions.

    1. Run your dog up and down the stairs.
    Using the stairs is a great way to tire out your dog. The steps add an additional challenge to a dog’s workout, as they engage different muscles than those used on a regular walk or run and add an extra level of difficulty with the change in elevation. Stand at the top of the stairs and throw a toy down to your dog. When your dog grabs the toy, call his name and have him bring the toy to you. After several rounds of this, he’ll be winded.

    2. Set up obstacle courses.
    Whenever Cesar enters someone’s house on the show, he looks around for things in the environment that can be repurposed to help the dog. Like using that old hula hoop for him to leap through or using cushions to create a tunnel for him to navigate. Map everything out and lead your dog through the various obstacles. This game will challenge your dog both mentally and physically.

    3. Make your dog work for its treats.
    Take a variety of your dog’s favorite treats and hide the around the house – behind doors, under tables, underneath rugs, etc. Your dog will be so busy tracking down his treats that he’ll physically tire out in the process. Treat dispensing toys are another great way to keep your dog busy and engage them physically as they push around their toys and try to get to the food inside.

    4. Keep away and fetch.
    Engage your dog in a good old fashioned game of fetch and keep away. These games keep your dog engaged, active, and help to release pent up energy.

    5. Take a socialized outing.
    Put your dog in the car (always remember to use a car restraint!) and head over to the nearest pet store. Walk your dog through the aisles, let him try out toys and sniff around.

    6. Get your dog on the treadmill.
    A treadmill is a great way to get your dog a dose of healthy indoor exercise. First, allow your dog to get comfortable with the sight and sound of a running treadmill. Next, place your dog on the treadmill and give him a treat. Turn the treadmill on the lowest speed. Give him treats to keep him on the treadmill. You may use the dog’s leash as an aid but never tie your dog to the treadmill. Also, standing in front of the treadmill and rewarding him with treats for walking might make your dog feel more comfortable. Once your dog is adjusted, you can gradually increase the speed to provide a more challenging workout.

    7. Tug of War—But Be Aware of the Risks
    With the amount of ropes and toys available that encourage tug of war, it’s not surprising that so many dog owners play this game with their dog. However, you need to be aware of the risk. It’s a game that brings out the predator in your dog and can be unhealthy for your relationship if you don’t have trust and respect to begin with. You need to have control over your dog’s power and instincts before you can engage in a healthy game of tug of war with them.

    A Countess Cabaret

    Oh Lu, maybe you should learn when to fold ’em.

    Luann has had a rough few weeks. First she was arrested in the city where she was married, announced she was going into rehab and then it was suggested that she drop her last name (for original story click here.)

    Now in a sure to be embarrassment, Page Six is reporting that Luann is moving forward with a Cabaret show that has been in the works. Is Sonja Morgan her agent giving her these ideas???

    Page Six reports that Lu has been working hard on a Cabaret act titled “Countess and Friends” and is described as a:‘ “nightclub act”which is set to debut at NYC supper club Feinstein’s/54 Below on Feb. 27 and March 8, unless she is still in rehab or isn’t permitted to leave Florida by the judge presiding over her case.’

    The show will showcase: “[D]e Lesseps’s glamorous life in the fast lane on several continents (together with a solid decade at the center of reality TV) provides fodder for hilarious stories, one-of-a-kind anecdotes, and, of course, some standards and pop songs in her inimitable style.”

    In addition she will have some guests described as, “an eclectic group of New York’s most sought after nightlife stars, both legendary and ascendant. Promises a glorious return to the heyday of cosmopolitan evening entertainment.”

    Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Spotted Together

    The couple that works out together, stays together! Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were photographed leaving a hot yoga session together in Los Angeles on Wednesday, January 3.

    Bieber, 23, and Gomez, 25, spent New Year’s Eve together in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, over the weekend. The “Wolves” singer shared photos with her close friends on the beach. 

    “Selena and Justin are back together,” an insider told Us at the time. “Selena and The Weeknd just fizzled and ended amicably — it wasn’t dramatic and it wasn’t about Justin. But Selena always had feelings for Justin.”

    While the on-again, off-again couple have yet to confirm their relationship, they were seen hugging each other during a night at a Montage hotel restaurant last month and were spotted exchanging a kiss after the “Love Yourself” singer’s recent hockey game. 

    Bieber first reached out to his ex beau in the months following her May kidney transplant. “They have both grown up tremendously and think that this is their time to get back to where they were before, but more in love than ever,” an insider exclusively told Us in November.

    The source added that because of their tumultuous history, Gomez’s “friends want her to be cautious.”

    Suzanne Somers Proves that You can Look Incredible at Any Age

    Game over, guys. It’s January 3, but Suzanne Somers just won 2018. The iconic actress  (and, let’s be honest, a women who will forever be #bodygoals) stepped out in a Balmain minidress and totally shut it down.

    Nevermind the fact that the Three’s Company star is 71 years old, she is proof that you can pull any look off (no matter how daring) when you rock it with confidence. Somers’ ultra-glam Balmain frock is a long sleeve minidress with metallic tiger print — not exactly a subtle fashion moment. And while some people might relegate such a bold moment to be worn exclusively by someone in their 20s or 30s or perhaps someone who has an edgier aesthetic, Somers proves that age has nothing to do with wearing our clothes well.

    Even better? This isn’t the first time that the actress has rocked the same dress. In fact, Somers wore the sequined animal print mini in June 2016 — and get this, she accessorized the same way. All she needed was simple coordinated pair of gold metallic pumps! Our takeaway: if you find a look that works for you, wear it for as long as you love it — regardless of whether it is 2 years later or 10 years later. Put the photos side-by-side and you can’t even tell they were taken nearly two years apart!

    Somers is in good company with with this Balmain pick. Mariah Carey also wore the dress back in May 2016, but chose to wear the look with her own signature style touches: fishnets and black peep toe pumps (oh and, major movie star shades). The result: Carey’s look was all diva, whereas Somers’ outfit was a playful twist on her sexy style. Either way, Suzanne Somers and Mariah Carey prove that an investment in a killer Balmain dress is worth it, no matter your age.

    Are Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick Dating?

    Is Aaron Rodgers moving on from Olivia Munn? The Green Bay Packers quarterback was spotted on a date with Danica Patrick, according to the sports gossip blog Terez Owens.

    Citing an unnamed source, the website reported that Rodgers, 34, and the NASCAR driver, 35, had dinner together after Christmas at his favorite restaurant. It is widely known that Rodgers’ go-to eatery is Chives in the Suamico village of Green Bay, Wisconsin.

    “Danica and Aaron were all over each other, kissing and couldn’t seem to keep their hands off each other,” the eyewitness claimed to Terez Owens, adding that the pair “want to keep this quiet for now” but are “really hitting it off.”

    A source also claims to Us Weekly that the athletes are dating.

    Rodgers and Munn, 37, separated in April 2017 after three years together. A source exclusively told Us Weekly at the time that he ended the relationship because of the model’s friction with his family, which was previously revealed on The Bachelorette when the NFL pro’s brother Jordan Rodgers vied for his now-fiancée JoJo Fletcher’s heart in the summer of 2016.

    Meanwhile, Patrick and fellow NASCAR star Ricky Stenhouse Jr. called it quits on their five-year romance in December 2017.

    Prior to his rumored date with Patrick, Aaron was briefly linked to Marie Margolius. He was spotted with the former soccer player at The East Pole in New York City in August 2017. A source told Us at the time, “They seemed pretty comfortable with each other.”
