5 Fun Activities for your Dog this Spring

May 18, 2017
If this is the first spring you are spending together with your dog in San Diego, it must be exciting to look forward to the numerous activities that you can enjoy together until the end the end of summer. Spending time outdoors in the sun means more exercise and socialization for you and your pet.

Here are some great outdoor activities that you'll both enjoy:

1. Camping
While some people choose to leave their pets in daycare centers when they go on vacation, you can try visiting new places that are dog-friendly for a completely unique experience. Dogs of all sizes enjoy camping trips. Make the experience even more exciting by inviting other dog-owners.

2. Go swimming
With the cold finally gone, it shouldn't come as a surprise that your dog wants to splash in the water, perhaps even more than you. Find a beach in San Diego that allows dogs for you to visit. If you are afraid that your pet may wander too far, use a long leash to keep him fairly close to you. Besides beaches, you can explore hiking trails that are close to a lake or river, or simply find a pond, creek, or stream near you. He will be happy to splash around for hours, or simply lie in a kiddie pool especially on the warmer days.

3. Road trip
Many dogs love riding in cars, which can create a unique bonding experience as you take to the open road with your pet. Research dog-friendly places to visit and sleep along your route and enjoy yourselves. Be careful when driving with your pet to ensure that he doesn't escape. Consider opening the window halfway to keep your pet from sticking his whole body outside the window, and using a leash or doggie harness seatbelt to keep him safe and secure in the car. Also don't leave him in the car with poor ventilation as he could easily die from heat stroke if the temperatures are too high.

4. Dog photo shoot
When it gets very hot in summer, neither you nor your pet will have enough energy to go hiking or to run around. So, take the time to teach him some new tricks and take as many snaps and videos as you like. One of those photos or videos could make him famous on Instagram.

5. Go to the dog park
Besides simply walking your dog in the usual places, consider taking him to a dog park. He will definitely enjoy interacting with other dogs of different breeds, while you can chat and exchange ideas with other dog lovers.

Before you begin your outdoor adventures, make sure your dog gets the necessary immunizations. Most dogs for sale in San Diego have the first immunizations administered, but you will need to give booster shots at the right intervals. Also stock up on treats as you will need your dog to be in his best behavior when interacting with other people and animals.
