With the summer months just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start planning fun activities for you and your pet to do together.
Here are a few ideas to help you and your pet make lasting memories this summer.
1. Visit a dog-friendly beach
Australia is home to thousands of beaches. Over the summer months, a visit to the beach is at the top of many of our “to do” lists during the summer months. Before heading out to the beach, we recommend doing a bit of research to ensure that the beach is dog friendly. For Queenslanders, here is a list of the top 10 dog-friendly beaches within the state.
2. Go on a scenic hike
Going on a hike is a great way for you and your furry friend to get some exercise and explore the beautiful scenery that Australia has to offer. While hiking on rustic trails, be sure to stay alert for any signs of wildlife and do not disturb them if you happen to come across a critter. Although not all snakes and insects are poisonous or carry disease, exercise caution, stick to the marked trail and keep your dog close at all times.
3. Have a pool day
Swimming is a great form of exercise for dogs, however, like children, dogs should always be watched while in the pool to ensure their safety.
4. Plan a camping or road trip
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, this time has offered many people the opportunity to reflect and appreciate the small things. Use this time to explore your local area while abiding by the COVID-19 restrictions in place within your state.
5. Make homemade treats for your pet
Making homemade treats for your furry friend is a great and delicious way to show them how much you care for them. You may be surprised to learn how easy it is to make your own homemade treats using a few simple ingredients! Check out some veterinarian-approved recipes by clicking here.
