4 Things To Do With Your Dog This Fall
Here are four fall activities for you and your dog to take advantage of during the autumn months.
Hike with Your Dog
Save hibernating for winter! Fall is the time to get out and soak up gorgeous weather and beautiful scenery. Look for things to do with your dog outside such as going on a hike. You can find dog-friendly trails and tips for hiking, camping and backpacking with your dog online, so you are prepared for the outdoors. Another benefit to all this activity? Well-exercised dogs are calmer and healthier.
Picnic with Your Dog
Fall is also a great time to exercise some hospitality, so go ahead and throw a dog-friendly picnic, holiday party or game-day gathering (pets welcome!). This is the perfect excuse to do a little seasonal decorating or landscaping, and make sure your yard is safe for your pet. Not only will your yard look great for fall, but your dog will love leaping into that leaf pile.
Cook for Your Dog
Right now, it’s all about pumpkin spice everything, but don’t forget to also spoil your pooch with some seasonal goodies. So, while you’re sipping that PSL or Pumpkin Ale at your favorite pet-friendly café or craft brewery, make sure to have some homemade dog treats on hand. There are tons of easy pet recipes online like Pumpkin Peanut Butter Treats and Apple-Cheddar Dog Biscuits. It’s also a good time of year to stock up on canned pumpkin. Built into your pet’s diet, pumpkin improves digestion, promotes a shiny coat and boosts immunity.
Travel with Your Dog
Before heading off to the apple orchard, outdoor festival or corn maze, call ahead and make sure dogs are welcome. Look for pet-friendly hotels, campsites and attractions as you plan that epic fall road trip. Check out sites like PetsWelcome.com for more info. And be sure to research possible food hazards before you share holiday food with your pup. A little legwork up front will ensure your best friend enjoys the season as much as you do.
