How do you plan on spending your summer? Why not spend a little time with your pets? We’ve come up with a great list of summer activities to tackle with your favorite four-legged companion.
Blaze a New Trail
Dogs love adventure, so why not take your furry friend on a hike? Choose a path close to a lake so you can take a dip afterwards and end the day on a cool note. And always do your research when taking your dog for a hike. Here’s a great site with information for hiking with your dog.
Doggy Play Date
Meet up with other dog owners for a doggy play date. You can catch up with friends while the dogs run around and keep themselves entertained.
If you haven’t gotten around to teaching your dog how to fetch, summer weather makes for the perfect time. Teach your pet some new tricks and spend the summer perfecting each one. Looking for some great tricks? Try this list!
Nothing else to do on a Saturday night? How about an outdoor concert with your favorite pal? Outdoor concerts typically take place in a large space leaving your dog plenty of room to stretch out and relax, and it’s a fun outing for you both!
Jump through Hoops
Set up an obstacle course including Frisbees, hoops, and doggy treats. This is a great way for your pet to get some mental and physical exercise, both of which are extremely important to their health and happiness.
If you love to bake, look up a pet friendly recipe and make your pet some new treats. You can even make it into a fun gathering by inviting your friends that have pets over to join in on the fun!
Post a Video
Post a video online of you and your dog doing tricks, singing together, or just hanging out. Social media has become a place where people crave adorable pet videos, so give the people what they want and have fun while you’re at it!
Roll through the Park
Have you ever tried roller skating with your pooch? It can be a great source of fun and exercise for you both. Grab a leash and let him lead the way!
Running on the beach will keep you and your buddy fit and trim for the rest of the summer. Make sure you research your chosen beach so you know the rules provided for dog beach use, and keep a few baggies in your pocket for your buddy’s potty breaks.
Run through the Sprinklers
Turn on your outdoor sprinkler system or set up a slip and slide so you can both enjoy the water.
Roll the Windows Down
A quick road trip with all the windows down on a hot summer day could be all the fun that you and your four-legged friend need.
Enjoy your summer! Don’t forget to send us your favorite summer pictures on our Facebook page!
