Are you excited about going out after the long cold and winter season? As spring is approaching, a lot of people are surely getting excited about going out and spending time and doing various outdoor activities. But did you know that just like you, your dogs are also excited about going out as well? Spending time to go out with your pet is an important part when it comes to building your partnership, and in making sure that your dog remains happy. It can even give you time to exercise as well. What spring activities can you do with your dog? Take a look at some of the things you can do with your pet below this spring:

1. Camping With Your Dog

You can take your camping. You don’t need to leave your pet to a pet day care center or leave it home because dogs will also enjoy camping. Going camping can also help you and your dog spend some time together. Dogs love to explore, and this is a great way to do it. Try to look for pet-friendly camping areas, cabins, lakes, or even parks near you.

2. Walking

Another spring activity with your pet can be as simple as walking. Walking may seem to be a daunting task, but it is a great way to give you and your pet some exercise. It is also a great opportunity to spend time with each other as well. However, make sure that your pet can handle walking, and also watch out for indications that it may be tired or exhausted. If your dog is old, then it may have trouble walking long distances in fast paces, so make sure that you consult your veterinarian about it first.

3. Hiking

You can also go hiking with your pet when the weather is good! There are a lot of pet-friendly hiking trails in the country. You can search the internet for hiking trails near your area. However, make sure that you remain prepared when you go hiking. Take emergency items/supplies, water, first aid and water with you. Make sure that it is enough for you and your pet. Also, make sure that you never leave your pet alone, as there are also dangers present in the woods such as snakes, bears, poisonous plants, and many others. Make sure you are aware of the poisonous plants that you might encounter during your hiking trip.

4. Explore the Beach/Lake/River

Just like you, your dog will also have fun with water! You can go to the nearest beach, lake or find a stream or river which you can visit together. Your pet can sure spend some time splashing around water. Make sure you bring in a towel for your pet so that you won’t have trouble drying them off.

5. Biking

Similar to waking, you can also bring your pet biking. If your pet is more than twenty five pounds, and if it is at least one year old, then you can probably take it biking. However, make sure you do some research because there are some breeds like bulldogs that aren’t fit for this type of workout. You can get leashes and other dog gear to help make biking easier and safer. Nonetheless, make sure you still watch your pet and stay careful when passing by roadways or streets.
