Can you believe its June 1st already! We book up quick for the summer so make sure to book your reservations now. As much as we hope to see all of your pets this summer, we thought it would be nice to give you some ideas of things to do with your pet while the weather is warm.
10 Ideas for summer
1.) Dine out with your dog. Summer = patio season, which means dining al fresco with your dog. Get out of the kitchen and take a stroll with your best furry friend to the nearest dog welcoming spot with outdoor seating. If your dog has questionable table manners, grab some take-out and head to the park instead.
2.) Be a tourist in your own town! A surprising number of historical sites, museums, and art parks are dog friendly, allowing well behaved, leashed dogs to visit.
3.) Take a trip to the lake or beach! There are so many local beaches & lakes that allow dogs on & off leash. A few examples; Del Valle Regional Park in Livermore, Fort Funston in San Francisco, and Monterey State Beach.
4.) Take your dog on a drive-in movie date! Yes, you may have to journey to San Jose or Concord but a night at the drive-ins means the whole family can come along.
5.) Go Camping! Many state park campsites HGH allow dogs provided they are on leash.
6.) Host a BBQ party! Time outside with friends and family and the promise of sneaked bits of meat. Doggie heaven, plain and simple!
7.) Hit the Farmers Market. One of our favorite summer activities that both you and your dog can enjoy.
8.) Start a walking group! A great way to get in some exercise for you and your pup.
9.) Friday night play group! Thatâs right, we are currently hosting a puppy playgroup every Friday night from 6-7pm and a small dog playgroup from 7-8pm. These playgroups are run by our very own trainer, Joanna Czaja. They are a great way to socialize your dog in a safe and secure environment.
10.) Itâs important to keep your dog cool during these hot months. Dogs donât sweat like people do. They regulate their temperature through their paws & by panting. Help them stay cool by wetting a bandana, wringing it out and popping it in the freezer to make a cooling icy bandana. You can also float treats in a wade pool or let them run through the sprinklers to stay cool.
These ideas are a mixture of our employeeâs favorite things as well as suggestions from this monthâs Modern Dog Magazine. We hope to help you kick off your summer! We look forward to seeing you all soon!
