Spring is here and there are plenty of outdoor dog activities you can do with your furry friend that will be fun for both of you. Here are some outdoor activities you can do with your dog this weekend.

Take a Hike – spring is a wonderful time to get outside and see all that nature has to offer. The blossoming trees, the budding flowers and of course the sunshine are plenty of reasons to want to take a hike.

Plan a Play Date – Who doesn’t love to hang with friends? What better way to get out of the house and catch up with friends than with a doggy play date. Get in touch with a few of your friends who also have dogs, and schedule a time to get together. Your pups can play while you have quality friend time!

Build an Obstacle Course –Dogs happen to love the venture that comes from running through mazes and obstacle courses. Use what you have from around the house to make a fun obstacle course or maze for your pup. With the weather warming up, your backyard would be a great place to set this up.

Shed the Winter Weight –If you live in an area that has cold, snowy winters, outdoor exercise can be limited during the winter. Now that the weather is warmer, it’s time to get out of the house and go for a long walk or jog. Not only will this be helpful for you but it will get your dog in shape too!

Just as you were excited for spring to arrive, your dog is also. Being cooped up inside all winter can become uninteresting for your dog after a while. It’s time to wipe off your running shoes, break out that leash and hit the pavement.
