7 Fun Spring Adventures to Enjoy with Your Dog

As the vibrant colours of spring begin to emerge and the weather turns warmer, it's the perfect time to embark on some exciting outdoor adventures with your fur baby! Let's go!

Scenic Hiking Trails:

Spring is the ideal season for hiking, with blooming flowers and mild temperatures! Look for dog-friendly hiking trails in your area and set off on a nature hike. Don't forget to pack plenty of water, snacks,  a leash for safety, tick repellent and even dog booties. Let your dog sniff and explore along the trail.

Beach Day Excursions:

If you live near the coast or a lake, why not plan a beach day excursion with your dog? Many beaches allow dogs, especially during the off-peak season in spring. Spend the day playing fetch in the sand, splashing and basking in the sun together. Just be sure to check the beach's regulations regarding dogs and always clean up after your doggo.

Dog-Friendly Glamping Trip:

Consider a glamping trip with your dog for a more adventurous spring getaway. There are lots of great options on AirBnb for pet-friendly glamping locations. Spend your days exploring the great outdoors through scenic trails and roasting marshmallows around the campfire at night. Just be sure to pack all the essentials for your dog, including food, water, bedding, toys, etc. 

Scenic Drive and Pup Cup Pit Stop:

Take advantage of the pleasant spring weather by going for a scenic drive. Choose a route that offers breathtaking views of nature, whether it's winding country roads, coastal highways, or mountain passes. Roll down the windows and keep your with a safe hold, especially if they are small, and let your dog feel the breeze as you cruise along together.

To make the drive even more enjoyable, plan a special pit stop at a pet-friendly café or ice cream shop that offers "pup cups." Pup cups are often small servings of whipped cream for dogs that are not lactose intolerant.

Agility Training in the Park:

Spring is perfect for agility training your dog in the park. Set up a makeshift obstacle course using cones, tunnels, and agility poles and encourage your dog to navigate it. Agility training is a great exercise, but it also helps strengthen your bond and improves your obedience skills. And it's a lot of fun for both of you!

Picnic in the Park:

Pack a picnic basket with your favourite snacks and treats and a cozy blanket, and head to your local park for a relaxing afternoon with your dog. It's a sweet way to unwind and enjoy the sunshine or even a sunset! #dreamy :)

Frisbee Fun at the Park:

Spring is the ideal time to head to the park for some high-flying frisbee fun. Frisbee is a fantastic way to keep them active and engaged and a great form of exercise for your dog. I would avoid dog parks as you never know what dogs will be there, and there's always a chance of conflict between dogs that don't vibe!

Have fun, and get ready to make lasting memories together this spring! :D
