It's fall, which means that the leaves are changing colors and falling to the ground. Cooler temperatures are on the way, and it's a great time to be outdoors. What better way to enjoy this beautiful changing of seasons than with your dog?

And if you're looking for some fun things to do, here are a few ideas! So, grab that leash and get ready to have some fun!

 

Go Hiking Together

Take your pup on a hike! There are plenty of trails that allow dogs to join you. If there's one close by, take some time this month and explore it together with your furry friend. Plus, the fresh air may be just what you need before winter sets in.

 

Travel With Your Dog

If you have a dog, travel with them! You'll get to explore new places and make some great memories. And if your pup is really well-behaved - they might even be able to join you on an airplane or in restaurants that allow dogs.

 

Workout With Your Dog

Don't let your pup miss out on a workout! If you've been taking it easy, now is the perfect opportunity to get back into it. Take your dog for a run or walk around the neighborhood - they'll enjoy getting some exercise, and so will you.

 

Play Fetch with Your Dog

If the summer temperatures were too hot for your dog to be outside, now is the time to head out to play. Go out to the park or into a field, get down on all fours, and just play fetch! They'll love chasing after the ball! (Be warned! You could be playing fetch for a long time!)

 

Go Pick Apples or Pumpkins with Your Dog

Who doesn't like apples or pumpkins? Take your dog apple picking or pumpkin picking, and they'll be sure to enjoy sniffing around and eating any apples or pumpkins that are on the ground!

Go Trick-or-Treating with Your Dog

This one might seem like a no-brainer but get your pet a cute costume and head out in the neighborhood for Halloween. Your pup will love the attention, and you'll get to have fun with them on the holiday – even if you don’t have children.

If the changing of the seasons has you wanting to get outside, then bring your dog, too! They'll love spending time with you and participating in new activities!
