Summer is right around the corner and you know what that means – it’s time for some day trips. But if the thought of leaving your furry friend behind breaks your heart, why not bring them along? Here are five dog-friendly day trips perfect for the upcoming summer days.
Go for a Hike
Exercise is much more fun (and easier!) when your dog is with you. If you live near a hiking trail, pack up the water, grab the leash and hit the trails. Not only will you and your pup get some exercise, you’ll get to get out of the house and explore nature together.
Explore a New Town
Not all road trips have to be extreme – even a quick trip to a nearby town can do the trick. Research some dog-friendly stores and restaurants in a town you haven’t been to yet and hit the road. Your pup will enjoy the new sights and smells and you’ll finally get to visit that town you’ve always wanted to.
Visit a Dog-Friendly Winery
The warm weather is the perfect excuse to visit a winery – with your dog! Tons of dog-friendly wineries are popping up and summer is the perfect time to enjoy some wine outside with your pup by your side.
A Day at the Dog Park
Looking to really spoil your pup? Let them have a day at the dog park. It can be a dog park in a different town or just your local spot. Either way, your pup will love getting to spend time with other four-legged friends and you’ll love how tired they are at the end of the day.
Soak up the Sun at the Beach
There’s nothing better than relaxing at the beach on a hot summer day. And while some beaches are a no-dog zone, there are plenty of beaches that allow your furry friend. Do some research to find a dog-friendly beach that’s close to you and get ready to soak up the sun! Make sure to pack enough water and some toys to keep your pup hydrated and occupied.
When summer rolls around there’s nothing like skipping town for a day trip – and it’s even better if you can take your dog with you! If you’re stumped on planning the perfect day trip for you and your pup, look no further than these five.
