Goodbye clouds of grey, hello sunshine mixed with a cool spring breeze. That’s right, spring is officially here! After being cooped up this winter, you and your pup may be itching to get outside and enjoy the new season.

Looking for some fun ways to get outside with your dog this spring? Here are just a few ideas!

  • Play a game of fetch! Whether you go to a dog park, or play a game in your backyard, fetch is a great way to spend some quality time with your pup. Fetch keeps your dog active, focused and even relieves their anxiety. Your dog should stay active for at least 30 minutes a day.
  • Enjoy a walk outside and take in the spring breeze! Long walks are less strenuous on your dog’s body and gives them the opportunity to sniff around and engage with their environment. According to PetBacker, ‘Dog owners are 34% more likely to fit in 150 minutes of walking in a week compared to non-dog owners’. Yep, you read that right! The more you walk your dog, the more fit you are too.
  • Check out your local dog park! When the weather is nice, it is always a great idea to visit your local dog park! Interacting and socializing with other dogs is important for your dog’s mental health. They can chase and run with their furry-friends and you can meet some fellow pet-parents along the way!
Pro tip: Always check ahead of time to make sure your dog has all of the necessary vaccines and registration to participate. Some dog parks can be privately owned and require you to fill out forms before your dog plays!
