Awesome Summer Activities to Do with Your Dog

July 4th, 2018

Paddling, swimming, diving

This is the most obvious summer activity as you can imagine 😊

My Scottie, . Tank, loooooves water!! He loves his paddling pool so much and gets so excited that he starts to bite the walls of the pool to the point that we can’t use it anymore, so over the years we’ve gone through few of them 😊.

He loves water but unfortunately, he isn’t a good swimmer because of his short legs and heavy (masculine) body. So when we were at the Dogs Unleashed Show at the end of June, he tried the diving pool with an assistant, and loved it! Unfortunately, without the assistance he wouldn’t be able to enjoy it as much, so I think my next purchase for him is going to be a swim vest!

Homemade frozen treats

Here you can really get creative!

Mash your dog’s favourite fruit and/or veggies and fill the ice mould or any other moulds you like and have. Put it in the freezer and voila … frozen doggy treats! You can also use meat or veggie stock with chunks of meat and veggies, pour it into a mould and freeze … and as Aleksandr the meerkat used to say, sheemples!!

Twist with the Kong

Does your dog like the Kong as much as my dogs? Have you thought about filling it with something delicious like a meat, mashed veggies, peanut butter and freezing it?

‘Chuckit!’ toys

My dogs like the ‘Hydro Squeeze Chuckit!’ toys in this hot weather. Soak them in water and freeze (lots of freezing this summer, lol!)

Fun with a hosepipe

No explanation necessary 😊 ! Mr Tank in action!

Early morning walks

My dogs and I are morning people.

You can easily find us out in the early morning walking around the quarry behind our house. I love early morning walks in summer … the quietness, haze, breeze, and no one around … just me and my dogs.

What are your summer activities with your dog/s? I love to try out new activities with my doggies (as I’m sure you know!) and always love to hear new ideas.
