Dog Friendly Summer Activities Near Me 

Schools are out for the summer and temperatures are rising, which means people across the country will be heading outdoors for their favorite summer activities. For pet owners, this can create a dilemma. Do you leave your dog home alone for the day? Do you drop your pet off at a doggy day care? 

How about looking for fun summer activities that include your pet? Exploring new places together can be a fun and rewarding adventure for your pet and will give you the opportunity to bond in new ways. 

Finding dog friendly activities is easy! Just type a few clever “near me” search phrases in your browser and you’ll have more options for dog friendly summer activities than you could have imagined. 

Dog Friendly Baseball Stadiums Near Me 

Search for “dog friendly baseball stadiums near me” to find published lists of major league (MLB) and minor league (MiLB) baseball games that you can attend with your pet. Most baseball teams offer a “dog day” where fans can bring their well-behaved leashed dogs to enjoy the game! If your dog fits the bill and you enjoy a good ballgame, head out, make new friends, and let your dog make new friends too! Even if you aren’t a big baseball fan, these events feature lots of fun activities and photo opportunities that will give you lasting memories of being together with your pet. 

Dog Friendly State Parks Near Me 

Search “dog friendly state parks near me” to get a ton of ideas for interesting places you can visit with your pet. The great thing about this search is the potential for lots of variety in the search results. There are likely to be natural points of interest – waterfalls, mountains, trails, beaches, canyons, and wildlife preserves. There are also likely to be historical points of interest – landmarks, architecture, and historic sites. 

Let’s be honest – it’s unlikely that you have actually visited all of the state parks within “day trip” distance, so this search will give you the chance to create some fun experiences and memories close to home that won’t cost a ton of money. Most state parks are dog friendly and make a great daily outing; just make sure you follow all the laws for pet owners. Most parks will require your pet to be kept on a leash, but some parks have leash-free play areas. 

Be sure to spend time in the shade, pack a hiking pack with plenty of water, buy a cooling vest for your dog, and explore as many state parks as you can! Make it a goal to hit them all with your dog in tow. 

Dog Friendly Beaches Near Me 

A day at the beach is as fun and exciting for a dog as it was for you when you were a kid. If your pet likes water, it will be a great chance to splash and wade around together. If your pet avoids water, that’s OK – the sand, the sights, and the smells will activate your dog’s senses. Just walking and sitting around at the beach will be an exciting adventure for your pet. 

Another suggestion is to go boating. If you have a boat (or have a friend who does), you can arrange a weekend on the lake with your dog, which they will surely appreciate. Follow all the dog boating safety tips to avoid any issues. It’s one of the more unique summer adventures that pet owners often forget to try, while others ignore the safety requirements. 

Pack up your dog’s life vest and head out on the water. If you have a boat, make sure to buy or rent a water ramp so your dog can enjoy the experience even more. Your dog will love the freedom to swim and the break from the rat race will give you a fresh outlook on life. 

More Dog Friendly Activities Near Me (that don’t require a search) 

Go swimming at a pool or set up a pet-sized pool and sprinklers in your yard. 

Frolic at a dog friendly pub – especially outdoor pubs and breweries. 

Stay at a pet friendly hotel. 

Go for a ride in a convertible. 

A Dog Friendly Summer Activity for Busy People 

Take your dog to work with you. It may not be an exciting summer adventure, but if you can’t take time away from work, at least you can make work more enjoyable by having your pup around. 

While not all workplaces allow it, for security, hygiene, or other reasons, surprisingly many companies these days will allow their employees to bring their dog to work with them. And why not? A furry friend in the office makes the working day so much more fun and positive! 

Your dog will enjoy the extra time spent with you – not to mention all the attention they’ll get from your colleagues. 

The Plato Pet Treats Cycle of Virtue 

The Cycle of Virtue can be defined like this: a chain of events in which one desirable occurrence leads to another which further promotes the first occurrence and so on resulting in a continuous process of improvement. We love our pets and want to provide the best we can for them, and when we bless them in this way, they continue to bless us with a better quality of life and increased lifespan. This is a beautiful thing.
