Instead of just opening the back door and letting your dog outside to go, go outside with him/her. I just took my dog out and walked the yard with her. We got more snow last night so I put my boots on and walked around the yard. My dog was much more active out there and I was able to pick up a few fallen branches and put them onto our branch pile. Nothing like getting moving right away in the morning.
