“Cause a little bit of summer is what the whole year is all about.” – John Mayer (Source: https://www.countryliving.com/life/g3499/summer-quotes/)
The summers are finally here! This is the time to venture out and explore under the bright sun. It also means you can do a bunch of fun stuff with your pet outdoors. Winters are harsh on your furry friend, with extremely low temperatures making it almost impossible for them to spend quality time outside. Luckily, as the cold transitions into warmer weather, you can make up for the lost time. Besides going on a hike or camping with your dog, building a no-dig dog fence in the backyard gives you much-needed open space.
If you are too busy to go all outdoorsy, you get a chance to ensure your dog doesn’t miss out on the summer sun. They will play around within the enclosure safely without the risk of getting out. What more can you do this summer with your furball?
While it’s true that not all dogs are swimmers, you can always make them more comfortable around water. If your pet is not an avid swimmer already, you have a milestone to achieve this summer by teaching it how to swim. The cool waters of the swimming pool, a nearby lake, or the beach (if you are visiting one) are soothing to dogs, and they enjoy it thoroughly, provided they know how to swim.
Camping with Dog
Feeling adventurous? Plan a weekend camping trip, and who better to accompany you on this exciting quest than your dog? Some quality time exploring the woods, chasing rabbits, staring at the clear starry night sky like Mufasa and Simba, and then curling inside the tent as nature’s symphony plays in the background. Can you think of anything better? It will create some amazing memories you will cherish forever.
P.S. Make sure that you take all necessary pet supplies with you.
Get out your hiking boots; it’s time to travel along nature’s trails under the summer sun. Your dog will be a tag along, breathing in the fresh air, playing, and jumping around you. Hiking and camping are great activities for larger breeds. However, that does not mean smaller breeds cannot experience the same. You might have to make different arrangements, like carrying them in a pet carrier or visiting a place that is safer for smaller pets.
Dog parks are great for meeting fellow pet parents and finding your dog a playmate. These parks are designed and maintained to ensure absolute safety. Instead of taking your dog on a walk in just any park, why don’t you try taking it to a dog park this summer? Let it make some friends. Like you, dogs need socializing too.
If not anything else, you still have your backyard to play fetch. If letting your pet play in the backyard unsupervised is an issue, try installing a dog barrier or enclosure. It will give your dog sufficient space to play and lounge under the sun. And you won’t have to worry about it wandering away in the streets or the road.
It’s a Wrap!
So, what would you do with your dog this summer? Will it be a new adventure or installing fences for dogs so it has a permanent playground within the house? Whatever you choose, we wish you enjoy a fantastic summer with your furry friend!
