Man’s best friend, the dog, can be the greatest friend you ever have. Doing fun activities with a dog can strengthen your bond, provide mental and physical benefits, and help your dog stay happy and healthy.

Kayaking:

If you have local lakes, rivers, a body of water, you can take your dog! You can get a nice workout as well as enjoy the views. Your dog will probably be scared the first time, so don’t do anything crazy until they get comfortable over time.

Hiking:

Getting your dog on a big walk out in nature is an amazing experience. You can bond as well as enjoy the scenic views. Your dog will love it with all the new smells!

Beach:

There are beaches out there that are dog friendly. Beaches are great for getting outdoors, relaxing, and even working out. You can swim, play fetch, meet new friends, even your pup can meet new friends.

Camping:

Camping is a great activity to get you to bond with nature and your dog. You can go for a short day trip, a weekend getaway, or even longer. The view, the type of campground, and level of comfort is all your choice. Just don’t forget the dog essentials!

Play a Game:

Dog’s are so much fun, and they love to be outside. If you want to play fetch, hide and seek, follow the leader, play frisbee, or any other game that you can train them for. You’ll strengthen a bond, through communicating and doing activities.
