Summer is almost here and now is a great time to start planning outdoor adventures.

9 Fun Things to Do With Your Dog this Summer Here are nine fun things to do with your dog this summer!

1. Be a Tourist in Your Own Town

Spend time exploring local parks, public art, farmer's markets, summer festivals, and other outdoor dog-friendly places.

2. Host a Pooch Party

Buy a kiddie pool and then invite a few friends and their pups over for a cook out and pool party.

3. Treat Your Dog to Dinner

Take your dog out on a date night to a dog-friendly restaurant.

4. Organize a Weekly Dog-Walking Group

Get in shape, explore your community, and socialize with your friends on weekend group dog walks.

5. Whip Up Some Frozen Dog Treats

Keep your dog cool by making some DIY doggie popsicles. Pinterest has about 10 million recipes to try.

6. Get Creative With Your Canine

Document your summer fun with photographs or a painted portrait.

7. Help Shelter Dogs

Many shelters and rescues hold summer fundraising dog walks. Sign up with a few friends and help other dogs in the process.

8. Hit the Beach or Take a Hike

Does your dog prefer the water or the woods? Either one makes for a fun weekend adventure.

9. Take a Road Trip With Your Dog

Whether you are the outdoorsy type or prefer high-end luxury, plan a summer trip to a dog-friendly destination that you will both enjoy. Most dogs love to be included in family activities, but be sure to do so safely. Always make sure your dog is well hydrated, wearing a collar, leash, and proper identification, and protected from the sun as well as fleas, ticks, and other parasites. Have fun!

Great Protection

I think this seat cover is going to work out just fine. It fits well, was extremely easy to install. Just waiting for my new puppy to be old enough to bring home.

Charlie Hendrix

Seat cover just received

It would be nice to be able to actually get some use out of it before I can honestly review the product. I will say that so far my experience with 4Knines has been wonderful. Their customer service is great.

Gary Beaton

Great Cover

I been getting these covers for many years and have never been disappointed with them great quality and well made something you don't see very much anymore !

Jere Miller

If you have dogs, and love your car, this is a must buy!

I recently purchased the Cargo Cover to protect my new Subaru Outback. My dogs love car rides, but they're also shedding dogs and make a mess. The Cargo Cover took a brief 30 seconds to install and provides protection against dirt, scratches, hair, dander. It's super easy to clean-up too!

Ryan Bracken

Great Product!

XL cargo liner fit my GMC Yukon Denali perfectly. While our 20 lb dog doesn't put much stress on the liner, it works great keeping the back clean from carrying our often muddy recumbent bicycles around. Top notch product, fast delivery. Thanks!

Leon Campbell

Great products. We are return customers.

Bought the bench cover and side panels for our Nissan Pathfinder. Looks great. We have the same set up in our Titan truck and couldn't be happier with the protection it gives to our leather interior. Highly recommend. Shipping was super fast!!!

Marchelle Jones

Super nice

I purchased seat covers for my Ford F-350 and my Ford Edge - really nice fit and I have piece of mind knowing my seats are protected!

Deby Hackney

Well Done!

Bought the seat cover for a rental SUV we were using on a road trip. It worked great. Kept off all the dog hair and our fur baby rolled around on it like crazy. Am going to move it to our everyday SUV. Nicely done!
