If you are like many families, now is the time to start planning the fun activities you will do this summer. It could be going on vacation or a series of smaller activities you want to experience. A great way to get more enjoyment out of your summer activities is to find ways to experience trips and activities with your dog. Here are a few great options you can try out this summer.
Go Camping with Your Dog
Camping is a great activity to enjoy with your dog because it allows them the opportunity to get out in nature. You can hike with your dog, fish with them, go for a swim (as long as the waters are safe to swim in) and so much more. There are many activities you can enjoy. If you have friends that also have dogs then you can make it a group activity.
Take a Trip to the Dog Beach
Who doesn’t love the beach? Just as you do, so does your dog. They will love taking a trip to the beach, feeling the sand in their paws and trying to gallop through the water. The only thing to keep in mind with this is that you need to follow the rules of the beach as each is a little different. Also, make sure you have the supplies you need to stay hydrated and cool while you and your dog are at the beach.
Join a Dog Meetup
Most cities have dog meetups. While you may not be able to find these all on sites like meetup.com you would be surprised how many Facebook groups there are out there. This can be a fun way for you and your dog to make some new friends this summer and have fun at the same time. Many dog meetups vary their location as well so you can explore other dog parks in the area.
Have a Pool Day
Many dogs love pools. There are some who do not like the chlorinated smell of the pool. If your dog does not like the pool like this, then you can always buy them a kiddie pool and fill it with water and watch them go nuts. Along the same lines, you will find your dog will love playing in the sprinklers.
