8 Fun Places To Take Your Dog For The Afternoon


So, the sun is out and your pup is ready to play – where to go? What to do? Sometimes it can feel like your options are limited when it comes to places that are welcoming to both you and your dog. However, if you take some time and look around a little bit, you will likely find that there are many spots in your local area where you and your best friend can have a great time.

1. Dog Park

Okay – so this is an obvious one. Still, it needs to be on the list because it’s one of the best places to take your dog for a fun afternoon. You will likely meet some new dogs, and the owners that go along with them, and your dog will get to burn off some of that extra energy.

2. City Parks and Trails

Most cities have a network of trails and parks that are available to citizens, and often they are open to dogs that are on a leash.

This gives you a good way to enjoy nature with your dog.

If you are living alone with a dog and you hate leaving the dog at home while you take a hike, jog or bike, you can take the dog with you and enjoy the nature together.

It’s also great for getting the dog to exercise without all of the distractions of city life around. A dog that gets regular exercise is a dog that lives a longer and healthier life.

3. A Friend’s House

Don’t hesitate to call up friends that have dogs and ask if they would like to get together for the afternoon. Social time is fun for both you and the dogs, and you’ll probably have a well-behaved furry friend on your hands later in the evening after all of the excitement.
