10 Things To Do With Your Dog When It’s Dog Days


One of the best things about having a dog is being able to spend all that extra time together. That’s because it takes a lot less effort to be with your dog than it does to go out on dates or hang out in coffee shops with other people — you know, normal human stuff! So if you’re looking for some ideas for activities that are fun for both of you, look no further:

Go to a dog park.

Dog parks are a great way to socialize your dog. Dogs need exercise and socialization, so if you can find a nearby park that offers both, it should be considered mandatory for your pooch’s well-being. Dog parks are also a great place to meet other dog owners who have dogs with similar needs. You may even find someone who has trained their pet in the same manner as yourself!

Try obedience class or another activity.

If you want to bond with your dog in a fun way, try obedience class. It’s an excellent way to learn how to communicate effectively with your pet and teach them good manners. You’ll also get to know their personality better as well as meet other owners who are going through the same training experience!

Practice tricks for treats.

Practice tricks for treats. A trick is a fun way to bond with your dog, and it can also be used to get their attention or teach them something new. Tricks are also fun and can be done anywhere! They’re great for practicing in the park, on walks, or even inside the house (if you have space).

Work on trick training, or other training.

You can also work on trick training, or other training. This can be a great way to bond with your dog and enjoy each other’s company. Training will also help you get more out of your dog as they learn how to listen and obey commands that are given by their owner.

Have a beach day.

  • Take your dog to the beach.
  • Bring some towels, water, and a camera.
  • Let your dog run around and play in the sand while you take pictures of them having fun. You could even get a little bit messy with them by rolling around in all that sand yourself!

Get outside and explore — it’s a win-win situation!

Your dog loves exploring, and you love spending time with your dog. So get outside and explore together!

This is a win-win situation, which means that you both benefit from it. Exercise can be good for us humans too, so why not take advantage of this opportunity to get some? And if you’re worried about the temperature being too hot or cold for your pooch’s delicate skin (or paws), then go during the early morning or late evening hours when it’s more comfortable. You’ll also get some sunshine while enjoying an invigorating walk in nature — all while getting some exercise, fresh air, vitamin D…and maybe even running into other people who are out walking their dogs!

Set up an agility course at home (or in your friend’s yard).

You can make an agility course at home, or you can ask your friend to help you create one in their yard.

You’ll need:

  • A few obstacles, like chairs, boxes and tunnels.
  • Some things for your dog to jump over (weave poles are good).
  • Something for them to run underneath (like a bridge).

Tease each other’s senses with food puzzles, scent games, and other sniff-centric activities.

You can engage your dog’s sense of smell by playing food puzzles, scent games and sniffing activities. Food puzzles are toys that have food inside and dogs must figure out how to get it out. The best ones will have several openings so the dog can manipulate them with his nose or paws in order to retrieve the treats hidden inside. Scent games are based on your dog’s ability to find a specific scent (like an article of clothing you’ve worn) when there are other scents present in the environment too, like from other people at a park or from other dogs at daycare. Scent-related games also include hide-and-seek where you hide some treats for your dog to sniff out when he finds someone else who has hidden some as well (but don’t let him eat anyone else’s!). Sniffing activities like tracking involve teaching your pup how to follow his nose all over town—plants, food samples at farmers markets, even sewage systems—to learn what they all smell like!

Take your dog to the movies — they won’t complain that it’s too loud… because they’re not allowed to talk!

Take your dog to the movies — they won’t complain that it’s too loud, because they’re not allowed to talk! Most cinemas have a policy where you can bring your pup into the theater, but there are some exceptions (for example, if it’s a kids’ film).

If you’re planning to take your fur baby along with you on this date night adventure, here are some tips:

  • Bring treats. Your dog needs motivation while they sit through an hour and forty-seven minutes of humans talking without any dialogue from our canine companions. If they don’t like popcorn or candy corn, try bringing their own special treat (like peanut butter or leftover chicken).
  • Get them in the mood before leaving by playing one of their favorite songs on Pandora Radio as you drive over to pick out tickets for two adults and one child (your furry friend). This may also help distract them from noticing how uncomfortable all those people sitting around them look in such close proximity. As soon as we arrive at our destination for tonight’s screening experience I will let everyone know through various social media platforms that we arrived safely now so please feel free

Your dog will be happy as long as you spend time together.

There are many things you can do with your dog that don’t require a lot of time, money or travel. In fact, they may cost you nothing at all.

  • Take walks together. If it’s not too hot outside (dogs can get overheated just like people), go for a walk around the block or down to the park for some playtime and fetching games. Just make sure there are no cars coming before letting your dog off-leash!
  • Run errands with them in tow (or on their own leash). Do all those tasks that need doing around the house: grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions from the pharmacy or stopping at Home Depot on the way home from work to buy something you need for repairs around the house or yard. You’ll be surprised how much more fun these tasks become when someone else is helping out – even if that “someone else” is your four-legged friend who gets excited about going out with you!
  • Play catch with a ball/toy in hand as long as there aren’t other dogs nearby who are likely to try and steal it away from each other!


You can have a great time with your dog, no matter what the weather is like outside. You don’t need to spend hours doing these activities, either — just 15 minutes of quality time together every day is enough to keep your relationship strong.
