With summer nearly upon us, we here at Dog-E Discounts thought it would be a good idea to use today’s post to go over some summer activities that you and your dog can do together so that you can show your best friend just how much you love and appreciate them.

Your Dog Wants to Spend Time With You
Above all else, your dog just wants to spend some time with you. Any dog owner can tell you that the best part of their dogs day is when they finally get to spend some time with their human. With the temperatures outside rising, now is the perfect time of year to get your dog out of the house and have some fun! Below, we have listed a few activities that you and your dog can do together.
- Dog Park: Dogs, like humans, are social creatures. While cats are perfectly content being left to themselves for hours at a time, dogs are much more likely to crave attention from outside sources. Taking your pooch to a dog park is not only a great way to make sure that they are getting a healthy dose of exercise, but is also a great way to give your dog the opportunity to socialize with other dogs and people. Before taking your dog the dog park, however, we suggest you do a little research. Try and find a dog park that separates pups based on weight. While most dogs are perfectly content being nice to other dogs, we have found that occasionally smaller dogs can become nervous around larger dogs, causing them undue stress.
- Lake Trip: If there is one thing most dogs love more than running around outside, it’s running around outside and jumping into a large body of water. Treat your dog to a day of fun and excitement by taking them to the lake with you. If you don’t have access to a lake, and pond or slow moving stream will work. Before taking your dog on an aquatic themed day trip, make sure that the area you are taking them to does not require dogs to be on a leash. To make the day even more fun, we suggest that you bring some toys for your dog that they can fetch from the water.
- Camping: If you think humans are the only animals that love camping, you’ve obviously never been camping with a dog! Dogs love the outdoors just as much as us and camping is a great way to give them an opportunity to get back in touch with nature. If this is your pups first camping trip, make sure that you have plenty of food and water for them to enjoy. If you want to take it to the next level, multiple vendors sell hiking vests for dogs that allow them to carry supplies. Not only will this help them build some extra muscle, it’s a great way to make sure that you have some extra supplies on hand in case of an emergency.
- Roadtrip: Believe it or not, your dog might like road trips even more than you do. If you’re looking to get your furry friend out of the house for a little but you don’t have the time or resources to take them to the park, simply pop them in the car and take off. Car rides offer dogs the opportunity to see new sites, smell new smells, and feel the breeze whipping through their fur.
