Fun Places to Take Dogs

Do you enjoy taking your dog to locations he will love but you are tired of visiting the same old places? Of course you can take your dog to a pet supply store, a park or the beach. However, perhaps you are looking for somewhere new and fun to entertain both you and your dog.

An outdoor shopping plaza is a great start. Whether you visit a local strip mall or a grand outdoor piazza, your pooch is sure to enjoy the day spending it outdoors with you.

A splash fountain is another great idea. Although they are intended for children, dogs love them too. Your dog will love spending the afternoon running around on one of them. They can have fun and cool off simultaneously.

You can always take your dog to a pet bakery. Pet bakeries are more common in big cities than in small towns. However if you have one, you will find home-baked treats that often have healthy, organic ingredients. Your dog will enjoy being pampered in such a yummy way. You can even shop for his birthday cake if it is that time of the year.

Speaking of delicious, why not take your dog to your local ice cream shop? Many ice cream shops have outdoor seating that welcomes dogs. Some ice cream shops will even give you a complimentary scoop for your dog. Even if they don’t, you can buy him a scoop of vanilla ice cream to enjoy.

Take him out to the ballgame! In many major cities, major league baseball has opened up its schedule to include dogs. Sometimes named “Bark in the Park,” these baseball games are a fun way to enjoy a sporting event with your dog. Some stadiums even donate their profits from these events to local animal shelters.

If you have a drive-in theater in your town, what a great place to take your dog? Most drive-in theaters allow you to bring your pets as long as you keep them on a leash and pick up after them. Be sure to keep him comfy by giving him a dog bed, water bowl and treats.
