Places to Take Your Pet

If you want to spend more time with your pet, there are plenty of ways to increase your fun together. Try out some of these ideas and see how much enjoyment it brings both of you.

 

Backpacking
 
Dogs love to get away. Plan a backpacking trip and take your four-legged friend out on the trails. Before leaving, make sure your dog is in good physical health and can handle the exercise. You’ll also want to know basic first aid practices and have lots of water on hand.
 
Day Trips
 
Most dogs enjoy a ride in a vehicle. Take your pet with you when you visit family and friends. As a special treat, stop by the pet store and do some shopping with them by your side. Surprisingly, most dogs enjoy browsing the aisles of the pet store.
 
Dog Parks
 
Dogs love to roam free and most cities provide spaces for them to do that. It’s also a great time to allow your pet to become social with some new friends. If you have a smaller dog, just be sure to supervise them around the larger animals. They could get easily injured even when there are no ill intentions.
 
Frisbee
 
Disc dogs are the term given to dogs that love Frisbee. If you’ve already tried out the ball with success, then it’s time to give this flying disc a shot. This sport requires jumping, so have your dog checked by the vet first to ensure they are in great health.
 
Word of Warning
 
Whenever you consider taking your dog to participate in strenuous activities, you need to think about their health. If your dog isn’t used to exercising regularly, a full checkup is in order first. Contact your veterinarian first to get blood work, x-rays, and shots. Then, increase their activity level slowly. Together, you can have of fun – just do it safely.
