As the end of summer is coming around, and your kids go back to school and you are going back to work, your dogs might start to feel a little lonely. To help, do these end of summer activities to keep your dog’s active and happy. Zen Frenz is all about wellness! What a better way to spend the end of summer than with your doggy!
1.Take a Hike
Dogs big and small are excellent hiking companions. Make sure that they are socialized among people and other dogs and that the weather is not too hot so you can have a great day exploring with them. Make sure that the hike is not too strenuous for them and they are well hydrated through the whole trek.
2. Go on a Camping Trip
Summertime means pet playtime! It’s the perfect season for camping with our friends and pets. Whether you’re a backpacker that goes on journeys for days or a casual camper, your dog can be a great addition to your summer plans. Make sure you prepare your dog, research the campsite, get the right gear, and have fun.
3. Throw a Pet BBQ
Have some friends that have four-legged best friends too? Throw a puppy party in your backyard and enjoy the nice weather with them. Pick a theme, get some dog treats and prepare to celebrate the summer.
4. Play in the Pool
Swimming is not only fun, but it’s a great way to introduce another form of exercise for puppies. In addition to proper training, you must take precautionary measures before teaching your pup to swim in a pool. Most important of all, understand that some puppies love swimming but others are simply not interested.
5. Have a Dog Beach Outing
Temperatures are heating up and it’s a great time to check out some dog-friendly beaches with your four-legged friend. Your pet will love running around in the sand, jumping in the water and hanging out under the beach umbrella. They will have the best day ever! Come prepared, bring some toys, water and bowl and of course those doggy bags!
