The dog days of summer are coming to a close, but it is never too late to enjoy some fun in the sun with your pup! Here is our top five list of dog friendly activities you should definitely squeeze in before summer is over:
Nothing is better than jumping into a cool pool on a hot summer day, but it’s even better with your furry friend. Dogs tend to love swimming for the same reasons we do- it cools you down, and it’s fun! It’s also great exercise for your dog so don’t forget to pack your Chicken Chips to fuel them up. If you do take your dog swimming, it’s important to be safe and monitor them closely. You can read about water safety tips here.
2. Make popsicles
Break out those silicone molds stored in your cabinet and turn them into some dog-friendly deliciousness! Pupsicles are the perfect summer treat, and they can be enjoyed by humans and dogs. This article lists lots of great recipes you can try out. Don’t forget to top with some treats!
3. Exercise Outdoors
Here in the Midwest, it’s so important to play with our dogs outdoors before the winter weather hits. There are many fun, active things you can do with your dog outside - play fetch with a frisbee or their favorite ball, run through a sprinkler, go for a walk… the possibilities are endless!
