Dog Friendly Ideas For Summer
Summer is here which means time for outdoors and adventure. Instead of leaving Fido at home to excitedly greet you why don’t you bring him or her along for the adventure. It’s always more fun with Fido by our side.
1. Visit the Farmer’s Market
It’s the time of the year for fresh local produce, fruits and vegetables. Bring Fido with you to checkout the stands at your local farmers market. Many farmer’s market’s are dog friendly so you can bring Fido while you stalk up on local healthy goods while you support your community.
2. Take a hike
Take advantage of some local hiking trails or mountains if you live within driving distance. This is an ideal outing for dogs who are high energy. Make sure to load up on snacks and water. It is important to know if your dog is healthy enough for an outdoor adventure. Check trails and state parks to see if pets are allowed on the trails. Many state parks do not allow dogs. It’s important to plan ahead and know your dog’s limitations. Be prepared for whatever may come across your path. Most of all have fun! Take lots of pictures and enjoy a day out with Fido.
3. A day by the lake or ocean
Visit a body of water. A day by the lake, creek, or ocean is a great way for you and Fido to cool off and get some fresh air.
