Regardless of how much time you spend with your dog, it will never be enough; it is called man’s best friend for a reason. Also, even more than people, dogs need to work out regularly especially after spending a lot of time gaining extra pounds indoors during winter.
A regular walk would do but spicing things up for both of you is far much better, don’t you think? In this article, you will learn fantastic outdoor activities that you can do with your dog and make memories that you will both keep forever. (Well, the dog might not remember, but that is not the point here).
- Go to a Dog Park
If your dog is active and playful, there is no better place to take him than to the local dog park. He will have all the space he needs to run around. In addition to exercising, your dog will interact with other dogs and make dog friends. It is said that dog parks can alleviate behavior problems and reduce the number of pets surrendered to shelters.
As a good dog owner, be responsible in the park; at the very least, make sure your dog understands necessary commands like sit, come and stay and clean after him. Take these points into consideration;
- Your dog should be healthy, current on vaccinations and have all necessary licenses.
- You should not bring more dogs than you can handle.
- Do not let your dog involve himself in inappropriate behaviors like jumping on people, bullying, aggressive playing or extreme barking.
- If another dog makes you or your dog uncomfortable, just leave.
- Do not take a female dog in heat to the park. An intact male should be social and non-aggressive.
