It’s pumpkin spice season ya’ll, and that means we’re experiencing all of the fall feels! With the weather cooling down, it’s the perfect time to enjoy making memories with your pup outdoors, all while giving them plenty of healthy exercise!
In this post, we share some of our favorite fall activities that aren’t just fun for the family, but perfect for your dog as well!
With Halloween around the corner, now’s the time to get into the spirit (or with the spirits) and join a local ghost tour. When booking the tour, ask if it’s pet-friendly, and make sure to bring the leash for an evening of strolling around town. Your dog gets to burn energy and you get to learn about the fascinating folklore and history of your area.
Bumping along on a hay wagon is a timeless fall tradition that you can do with your dog (if it’s pet-friendly, of course). Think of it this way, if your dog loves sticking their head out of the car window, then a hay wagon will have that tail waggin’ a hundred miles per hour!
Cooler afternoons, blue skies, and changing leaves are the ultimate motivators to get everyone out and about during fall. It’s also a perfect opportunity to hit up your local dog park, where your energetic pup can frolic and run with their buds without the risk of overheating, like in summer.
Halloween and Thanksgiving events aren’t just for hoomans anymore. Call your local Jacksonville doggie daycare and inquire about holiday events for pets! This is a great opportunity to celebrate with your dog and meet other pawrents in a safe, fun environment.
There’s nothing better than strolling through the woods during fall. The cool weather cuts down on the mosquitos, there’s golden tranquility in the air, and the tree leaves are changing colors. Your dog will get to trot by your side, enjoying the great outdoors just as much as you. This is also a fantastic way to burn off that holiday cooking!
