Hi there and welcome, In this post, I’m going to share some ideas with you, on fun stuff to do with your dog. I will only get to cover a few ideas as there are so many things you, can do.
It’s all about fun so here we go.
The Beach – Fun times
A beach is a place so many people love to take their dogs. Lots of space to play, a great pleasure to have fun especially if your dog likes the water and if they don’t it’s a really cool place to go for a walk.
Some fun stuff to do with your dog at the beach could be throwing a stick, playing ball, going fishing, doing some beachcombing or maybe even going for a run.
If you are going to take your dog to the beach remember it is a public place and you, may come across people on the beach who are wary of dogs.
They may have children and become nervous if they see your dog bounding along the sand, so please be considerate of other people and if necessary have your dog on a leash until you are far enough away from the public.
Summer is always a time when the beach is highly populated and in some towns, there are times when you, are not allowed to take your dog onto the beach where people gather to swim and picnic, so check the rules.
Also, if your dog loves water, be aware if you are throwing a stick into the sea, sometimes predators for example sharks can come in very close to the shore especially if the water is warm and when it gets close to sunset. They have no mercy when it comes to dogs and can smell them from a long distance. Not a great subject to share, however, I have heard some grim stories over the years.
I live by the seaside and I have had so much fun with my two girls there. I have also seen a lot of people with their dogs having heaps of fun.
A good idea if you, do go to the beach is, when you, return home wash your dog off with fresh water as the sand and the salt can cause skin irritations causing your dog to itch and scratch. We rinse off to feel fresher and your dog needs this as well. 🙂
Walking through a Park or Reserve
Again be considerate of the public who may be out walking and keep your dog on a leash for this walk. Take a poop collector and if you, come across other people out walking their dogs always be aware of the attitude of the dog you, about to pass. You want to keep yourself and your dog safe at all times.
Going for a walk through a park can be so enjoyable for both of you, as parks are normally really beautiful and there are often tracks winding through the park which is a great adventure and your dog will love all the smells along the way. 🙂
Have fun with your dog and be responsible as an owner as I’m sure you, will.
Agility and your Dog
Some breeds of dogs, in particular, the Border Collie absolutely love agility. Border Collie dogs are highly intelligent, have a high energy level and love to learn. There are many other breeds that enjoy this as well.
You can buy your own agility course and set it up on your property if you, have space or you, could take your dog to agility classes and let an experienced trainer work with your dog to learn the skills needed.
Agility products can be purchased either from a store you know of locally or online.
Here are a few agility products you, might like to check out.
