3 Fun Activities To Do With Your Pup This Weekend

It's time to stop the boredom and enjoy the fun with your pup! If you have a dog, then you know that they are a huge responsibility. They need food, water, exercise, mid-day walks, and other things. When you spend time with your dog, you're helping them to live a happy, healthy life. They're social creatures and need stimulation to learn, stay active, and feel good.


That's not to say that every second of every day needs to be a fun activity. Dogs also need routine, rest, and relaxation. But if you want a happy dog, you need to invest some time in play, training, and socializing. This helps your dog grow into the best it can be.


Having fun activities with your pup is also beneficial for you. It has been proven that dogs reduce stress, anxiety, depression, ease loneliness, and even improve your cardiovascular health.


Here are a few fun activities that you can do with your pup this weekend to keep it happy:


Plan Playdates for Your Pet

As mentioned, dogs are social animals. They are happiest when their humans and other dogs surround them. What you can do is plan a playdate for your pup. You can arrange a playdate for your neighborhood dogs by consulting the neighbors once a week. You might have to follow certain precautionary steps before taking your pup to the party. Make sure your and other pups are vaccinated. Arrange a pre-party/short meeting for dogs to get to know each other. Remember to keep security measures handy in case of a sudden fight. 


Eating Out Together 

Look out for pet-friendly places/restaurants in your city. It would be awesome to hang out with your best mate and have a sumptuous meal together. This might be very uncommon for many pup owners, but it would gradually help develop social manners in your pup. They will learn how to behave in certain places, which would indirectly help his mental growth, making him more friendly and socially behaved.


Hiking or Swimming 

Pups love to exercise. It keeps them energized and fit. There might be different exercises to keep them happy, but hiking and swimming are on the top of the list if you accompany your pup to these exercises. Both of you can go out swimming in a nearby lake or pond, and you can also teach some water tricks to your pup. Dogs love to swim! Hiking is also one of the top options. You can wear your safety gear and go on a hiking trip with your puppy. Just make sure to keep him out of dangerous surroundings. Always keep your pup on a leash when hiking!
