Summer is here and that means it is finally time to get outside! With the warm weather and long days, there are so many fun activities just waiting for you and your pup.
Recently, we have been discussing traveling with your dog
. We have covered everything from what to bring on a road trip
to what are the best dog-friendly hotels
, but what kind of trips might you take with your pup? The possibilities are endless!
There are so many different places
to explore and things to do, it would be impossible to include them all in a few short paragraphs. However, we do have a few favorite summertime activities
that we are excited to share with you.
Hiking is an all time favorite!
Not only is the exercise great for you and your dog, but it also gives your dog an amazing sensory experience
. Your pooch will love meeting new people along the trail almost as much as he will love all of the new and unusual scents. Just be sure to keep an eye out for potential hazards
along the way.
Swimming is everyone's favorite summer activity, including your dog's!
there is nothing quite like spending a hot summer day splashing around in the pool or nearby lake or stream. If you can't find a lake that allows dogs, try searching for a dog park that has a lake just for dogs
. Your pup will love it!
What is more perfect than getting some delicious ice cream on a hot summer day?
Many ice cream parlors and frozen yogurt locations
actually offer dog-friendly ice cream or other doggy treats. Your pup won't be able to get enough of this delicious sweet treat. You can also always top the day off with some fetch in the park, which will help them burn off that treat, as well.
This summer, have some fun with your pooch. Whether you are traveling across country with your seat covers for dogs
or walking around the block, there is always something fun and exciting you can do with your pup.
