Fall Fun for Furry Friends
Fall is coming to an end! Get out and about and enjoy the last of the warmer weather while it lasts.
1. Take a Hike
Autumn is the perfect time to take a long nature walk with your dog. Enjoy all the colors and smells autumn has to offer, all while getting in some dog exercise while you still can. Of course, make sure your dog is protected from fleas and ticks, and check their skin after hiking.
2. Enjoy a Hayride at a Local Farm
Does your dog love sticking his head out the window on road trips? He’s sure to love a ride through the farm on a scenic tour. Hayrides provide your pooch with cool air and some quality outdoor time. Ventures like these are great for social dogs. Before you bring your fur baby on a hayride, check to see if the farm is pet-friendly. Be sure to keep them on a leash and make sure they're well-behaved.
3. Make the Most of Game Day
There’s no shortage of ways to include your dog in the game day fun! If they're well behaved around crowds, you could bring them to a tailgate. Play fetch in the park and try to learn some trick plays. Cheer on your favorite team together from the couch. Whatever you do, don’t forget the snacks!
4. Go Apple Picking
Apple picking: The ultimate autumn activity. Bring your pup along for a relaxing walk through a pet-friendly orchard as you and your friends collect apples together. You can even use the apples you pick to make homemade dog treats!
5. Celebrate Oktoberfest
Although you should never give your dog alcohol, you can get them in on the Oktoberfest fun! Bring them to an outdoor celebration where pets are welcome. Even better, host your own Oktoberfest party and invite all the dogs in the neighborhood!
