Now, it’s time for 5 summer activities you can do with your dog!

1. Go for a swim!

Many dogs love the water and summer is the perfect time to take them swimming. If your dog doesn’t know how to swim, you can teach them or take them to dog-friendly beaches where they can wade in the shallows. Just be sure to never leave your dog unattended near water and always supervise them when they are swimming.

Dogs can also get sunburned, so be sure to put sunscreen on them if they are going to be spending a lot of time outside.

2. Have a picnic

Pack up a blanket and some dog-friendly snacks and have a picnic in your backyard or at a nearby park. Your dog will love being included in the fun and you’ll get to enjoy some quality time together.

Just be sure to keep an eye on your dog if there are other people or animals around, as not everyone is dog-friendly.

3. Go for a hike

Get out and explore nature with your dog by going for a hike. This is a great way to bond with your dog and get some exercise at the same time. Be sure to bring plenty of water for both of you and take breaks often so that you don’t overheat.

Hiking trails can be dangerous for dogs, so be sure to do your research before you go and only take your dog on trails that are dog-friendly.

4. Have a dog-friendly barbecue

What’s summer without a barbecue? Invite your dog-loving friends over and have a dog-friendly barbecue! This is a great way to socialize your dog and let them meet new people and other dogs. Just be sure to have plenty of dog treats on hand for when the pups start getting restless.

5. Go to the dog park

The dog park is a great place to let your dog run around and play with other dogs. This is a great way to socialize your dog and tire them out at the same time. Just be sure to keep an eye on your dog at all times and pick up after them when they’re done playing.
